Holiday Gift Guide: Matthew Robbins' Cozy Gifts
Posted by Carrie Goldberg
For my personal gift picks, I had to include some candles since they are such an important part of every party and wedding I design. To complement the scented Astier de Villatte candles, I give handmade Glassybaby votives. For dog lovers who also appreciate good design and maintaining a beautiful home, I suggest the products from Harry Barker. I also love to gift something from one of my favorite local businesses, and this Cold Spring Apothecary room spray makes a perfect stocking stuffer that can freshen up any room in the house, your suitcases, and even your laundry room. Lastly, these Kim Seybert napkins are so gorgeous. What could be more sentimental than setting a table with linens and accessories that were gifts from friends? It brings another layer of magic to the table!
Happy Holidays! Wishing everyone lots of beautiful moments in 2013!
1 Astier de Villatte Candles. I especially love the Namche Bazar Scent. They are beautifully packaged and burn very nicely. They are available in a unique assortment of eclectic scents and will please any number of friends or family for the holidays. www.astierdevillatte.com
2 I have been a longtime fan of these handmade beauties. I also love knowing Glassybaby gives so much to charity through their products. They are wonderful as sets and the color options are amazing. I like to use these votive holders as small vases for chic little bouquets. www.glassybaby.com
3 For those of us you enjoy giving to our four-legged friends, I highly recommend these wonderful hemp bones from Harry Barker. They're good-looking, well-made, and dogs love them. I prefer the natural oatmeal tone for my poodles and they are surprisingly durable! www.harrybarker.com
4 Cold Spring Apothecary Cypress Fig Room Spray. I'm sort of obsessed with this product. I love everything about it ranging from the amber glass bottle to the delicious and 100% natural fragrance it contains. Use this to brighten up any room in your home. www.coldspringapothecary.com
5 Kim Seybert's "Brushstroke" dinner napkins are great for newlyweds who like to entertain and for anyone who loves hosting a fabulous dinner party. I'm in love with the chic, versatile pattern. Other options include a crisp white or a creamier tone. www.kimseybert.com
