Holiday Gift Guide: Cassidy's Little Luxuries
Posted by Cassidy Iwersen
While they may not be necessities, these extra special somethings are my definite must-haves for making holiday entertaining, party-hopping, and even lounging around that much more festive. Here are the few things I hope to give and receive to add a dose of cheer to my envelopes, outfits, and fireplace chats this coming month and beyond!
1 This gold French Press is so pretty, I wouldn't mind leaving it out on the counter all season long to make a quick cup when friends drop by to enjoy with holiday cakes and cookies. (Bodum Chambord french press coffee maker, $70, bodum.com)
2 Different from the usual cards wishing others a Happy Holidays, I love the simple and joyful exclamation of these from Mrs. John L. Strong ($95/box, mrsstrong.com)
3 For lounging around all winter break (J.Crew silk pajama shirt and pant in brilliant cobalt $128 / $118, jcrew.com)
4 I would love a portrait like this of my best bud Alfie by the talented Happy Menocal ($300 for an 8'' x 10'', happymenocal.com)
5 These would make any outfit – from jeans and a white shirt to an LBD - during the holidays and beyond! (Ericson Beamon "In the Mood for Love" gunmetal plated Swarovski clip earrings, on sale (!) for $451.50, Net-a-Porter.com)
