All I want for Christmas ~ CLee and Sugar’s Top Picks
By: Christa Bauer

gift ideas | monogram necklace | etsy

I am telling you my friends are about to have a monogram intervention! BUT I have to have just one more piece. This is the cutest, preppiest necklace evah! Thanks friends at Etsy for producing yet another must have!

Espresso | Gift Ideas | Design Within Reach

You can argue the origin of these fab stove top espresso machines, but I’ll never go back to drip coffee. I savor my latte every morning and now I’ve got to trade in my bodum for this Maillard Espresso Machine from one of the most notable stores, Design Within Reach. Simple, sleek, and timeless, farewell Starbucks.

Recycled Wine Bottle | Candles

Aunt Cookie first gave me one of these candles last year for Christmas (you trendsetter you)! Since then I’ve bought over a dozen for myself and gifts and now they are featured at West Elm, cool! They smell amazing, are made from recycled wine bottles, and hail from Charleston – need I say more!

Diane Von Furstenberg | Target

Oscar de la Renta | Dog Bowl | Target

Okay, everyone is talking about the Target collaboration but I love both the Diane Von Furstenberg Yoga mat, and Sugar has her eye on the very refined Oscar de la Renta dog bowl – in a word, legendary.

Womens Accessories | Purse | Gap

Color block, is that still hot? I don’t care; I march by the beat of my own drum, and who wouldn’t with this brilliant over sized bright clutch from GAP, a steal at $39.95. Pa rum pa pumpum!

Jewelry | Womens | Anthropologie

Anyone could easily pop into Anthropologie and pick up nearly any trinket off one of their meticulously merchandised tables and make a girl happy, but I am particularly loving these delicate little danglers.

bath accessories | stocking stuffer | ideas

This oil is the perfect after shower luxury. Even if it does finally get cold the intoxicating gardenia scent will transport you back to summer before you can say ‘bikini’ and it leaves your skin dewy soft – stocking stuffer.

Donate | Charity | Holiday Season
Most of all, it’s important to give back to the Community in which you live, so consider donating to your favorite charity in lieu of a gift this season, remember how fortunate you are consider all the things for which you are grateful. Tis the season, right!

Happy Holiday’s!!

~All people deserve good design!
