Giving: tis the Season

I've asked some of my friends to offer up their picks for Giving this year. With a wide range of gifts, on their lists, I've a few of my own to offer.

Get personal. Choose a gift that reflects the person receiving it, or something that might peak their interest, or give a gift you'd like to receive (there you can never go wrong).  For the person who has everything—give small or give of your time (a true gift of the heart), or make a donation to their favorite Charity in their name.

With that here are some of my favorites to Give & Recieve.

This terrific CIRCA Incense Burner by Cinnamon Projects from AEDES.com here
To go with this two favorites of mine to burn during the season Astier de Vilatte MARIENBAD here and Estaban CEDRE here

I love fragrance in closets, chest of drawers, anywhere there are tight spaces that open to envelope us. This-something quite new to me by Frederic Malle. Rubber Incense here  Saint des Saints (one of my favorite scents). I love anything he creates—another favorite Carnal Flower. His candles are wonderful, magical, and long burning. —from AEDES again.

Another jewel of an incense burner is at Moda Operandi from the Cinnamon Projects again. here

Books? Of course in any shape or size. This set Great American Women Writers by Juniper Books here, at Moda Operandi is ideal for the bibliophile—young or old.

This is definitely a "1 for You, 1 for Me" fiction, The Walk to Elsie's~ Tony Duquette becomes Elsie de Wolfe s last great protégé. Based on a true story.

Mateo, jewelry that is the essence of simplicity and minimalism, yet harkening back to eras past.
—at Moda Operandi here 

Liz O'Brien offers the wonderful fashion photography of MARK SHAW. It would be hard not to find a dozen or more you'd love to have. Just 1, I think would set a collection in motion. LIZ O'BRIEN at 1st dibs. here

Dior Model Kouka Wears Hymenee Wedding Gown

Things I love time & again Magnifying Glasses, Paperweights, Scissors, Tape measurers. Often when I see a unique one I get several for giving.

The Paperweight from Bernard Masnier—to customize here

Everything is elegant and of keepsake sort

To the client that needs a real nudge, and a real Thank you, Three Panels by Raoul Dufy here. "La Danse" printed textile for Paul Poiret.

Paper. Oh I love paper. I received an art collector friend's collection and I've framed some things. Pinned others right onto the wall. His collection has inspired my own collection. A piece I'm selling Woodcut Design for a Kimono, on etsy here

Wallis Pillow from Thomas Jayne Studio here

The must have ultimate Name Dropper Pillow-I'd find it hard to give honestly—It's a Keeper! Designer Thomas Jayne, (I saw this on his IG feed) writes "The Wallis pillow is inspired by a design once used in the library of the Duke and Duchess of Windsor's villa in the Bois-de-Bologne outside of Paris."
