Gift Guide: gifts for her

I love hunting for the perfect present, something that surprises and delights that special someone!  I especially love giving a gift that is unique and different.  Each year it seems to get a little harder to find things that I have never seen before…but when I do, it is definitely exciting.  Don’t get me wrong… all of the magazines have some great ideas in their holiday gift guides, but for me some of the best presents are those that come from small boutiques and undiscovered, or up and coming designers!  Here are a few of my favorite boutique finds this season.


The Melange Collection by Molly M
In the Melange collection, Molly continues to experiment with new materials – exploring the potential of lasercut leather and metal. The jewelry is a mixture of existing designs made with new materials, and playful combinations of triangles and tabs – largely inspired by designs and techniques used in North and West African jewelry. The jewelry is made with metallic leathers, gold plated brass and rhodium plated stainless steel, and soft coral and mint waxed linen – a shimmery and luxe palette.


Clutch by Shawn Burke
The ultimate in luxurious simplicity. This small zip pouch is handmade in the softest suede and can be used as super a chic clutch or used for personal effects inside your bag .


Claridge & King Zipper Sweater
Don’t you think every woman needs a black cashmere sweater in her wardrobe? We do. Banishing the banal we took a great basic: the shallow V-neck style sweater and gave it some zip—literally.



Gift Guide: The kiddo on your list

Every year I grapple with the difference between what the kids say they want, and what I actually want to get them.  Mainstream media gets inside their little heads and convinces them they need the latest toy or gadget…which would be fine if those toys and gadgets were built to last, somewhat educational, or perhaps slightly creative.  But let’s be honest…most of the things your kids want for Christmas will be obsolete or broken within days or weeks of being unwrapped.  My solution, compromise! One gift from their list and one gift from my list. Check out some of our ideas for this Christmas below, or stop by and visit our kids section at our Yarmouthport shop.  Happy Holidays!

Times were tough in the small New England fishing village where Marcie lived. No one had any money, and work was hard to find. So the villagers rejoiced one glorious fall when an unexpected bounty of scallops filled their little bay. For young Marcie, a week of harvesting scallops also brought an unexpected adventure and a lesson about love that she would never forget.


The concept for the This Is… series came to Sasek while on a three-week holiday in Paris, where he observed that parents on vacation with their children were often too absorbed in other things to properly teach their offspring about the history and wonder of their surroundings. Initially, he intended to create only three books in the series – This is Paris, This is London and This is Rome. But the books proved so successful, beloved by children and fun to make, that he just kept going.
