...and a few more ideas...

Here are a few more ideas of gifts for other people.  Or maybe for myself.  Either way, here's some cool stuff to check out...

Best Friendship Bracelet Ever.  Excellent.  How did I not think of this look when I was 11 and making these things semi-professionally?  I need one of these immediately if anyone is listening.  Oh right, this is not supposed to be about me anymore.  These are presents for other people.  Shoot. 

Alexa Pulitzer Stag Alphabet correspondence cards, $75.  BG
These are incredible! 

Boissier candies, $15. I really just like the tins. I am sure the candy is nice, too. Great looking stocking stuffer.

Rablabs Agate and Gold rimmed cheese plate, $450.  BG.  Gorgeous. 

John Darien luggage tag decoupage trays.  I Love Graphics and Fonts and Design.  These are wonderful. 

Unicorn Stocking from Barney's Lady Gaga collection.  I love whimsy.  It makes me want a safari collection of stockings...hmm. 

Pancracio chocolate sardines in porcelain container.  I do not like fish, especially fish that comes in a can.  These fish are the exception. 

Michael Wainwright bowl, $385 @ BG.  Love. 

Man Gifts

It seems kind of a challenge for me to know what to buy for a man.  What is a man gift?  Considering my taste and tendency to lean strongly towards items I prefer, it can be a challenge to edit my choices according to someone else's wants... Therefore take this variety with a grain of salt (or a shot of Gosling's). 
This post's disclaimer to Mr. M, please don't fret when you read this; barely anything from this list is making it under our tree (wink wink).
Needlepoint men's "slippers".  Yes they look like spectators.  It's pretty great.  I agree. 
(Mr. M loves his spectators that he wore during the second half of our wedding.)

Best book cover of all time - it's woven fabric.  It's an old book, hard to find, but looks amazing in a vignette! 
I did marry some adventure but have not read this story...yet.   

Verdura carved coral and gold strawberry cufflinks.  About $11 Large.  Carved. Coral.  Stunning. 

Stingray iPhone covers - gorgeous!  I love the variations on iphone covers.  And iPads.  Seriously it's the cover options that make me want an iPad.  Really. 

Duuu nuh...duuuu nuh.  Genius cufflinks. 

You know how I feel about this can, and what it contains, and the fact that it is seemingly unavailable in Southern California.  Mmm hmm. 
I wish I had some empty cans because I would consider doing an entire Christmas Tree devoted to Dark'n'Stormies. How great would these look against the pine? 

Last but not least, a gift of some time on the beach would be a nice present.  See even this bull likes the beach.  Doesn't he look relaxed?  I can sense it in his blank stare.  Very zen moment.

Heidi's Christmas List

All within reason I believe (wink wink).
Martin Katz stackable rings. Pink Sapphire or Peridot please.  And I might need like yellow diamond or white diamond to break it up.  And maybe a black diamond one for my alternative days.  Oh and then navy sapphires and white diamond ones for stripes!  Yes! 

Eddie Borgo cone bracelets. $600 for the gold-plated version.  I would wear this everyday.  (Oh and I would wear the stacked diamond and sapphire rings daily, too.  I need more appendages or a body double.)

Rick Owens distressed leather jacket.  To go with the black diamond stacked rings.  Gorgeous. 

I am building a look here folks.  Alexander McQueen purple mink miniaudiere.  Did I mention it's mink and would look incredible with above mentioned jacket and stacked black diamond rings?

Simon Paul Scott hoof and paw candlesticks.  Come on.  These are INCREDIBLE.  (Available on the Seventh Floor @ BG)

1977 Mercedes 450 SL Roadster.  Hello. 

Rolex Oysterdate pink face with stainless steel.  Pink Face.  Need I say more?  And it's vintage 1980s of course. 
(PS would look great diamond rings...rick jacket...McQueen's mink clutch... It's beginning to sound like the 12 days of Christmas... Oh and driving that '77 Benz?)

I prefer the pink but this is a 1970s Rolex Oysterdate with an orange face and alligator bands.  Did I say anything about it being made in the 1970s?  Disco Deluxe.  Chic.
Will you be needing my shipping address or measurements? 
Merry Happy.  I hope your holiday is coming along as nicely as mine.  The only present I really wanted arrived a bit earlier than expected.
