For the rest of December we thought some festive blogging was in order… so here is our 1st attempt:

HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE (yes, everyone has them out there, but we think our ideas are pretty awesome… check it out!)

1. QUITOKEETO – Heidi Swanson’s online pop-up… i think of it as all Heidi’s favorite, interesting, unusual finds. For any foodie, these treats would be well appreciated.

2. Tailor & Stitch – these custom made shirts are amazing for the guys, everyone I have introduced to these shirts are addicted. Recently they have starting custom tailored suits at their pop-up shop @ The Station around the corner from CARROTS. Gift certificates for a shirt or a suit is pretty awesome, we think!

3. the new Cire Trudon holiday candle: Melchior available @ CARROTS. The perfect hostess gift or stocking stuffer… who doesn’t love these candles?


4. Restoration Hardware Baby & Child’s faux fur animal hats… these are too adorable. Seriously, if you don’t have a child around, find one… it needs one of these for Christmas! (Missy & Annalisa, please disregard #4 from your ideas)



5. Maison Martin Margiela iPad case, now @ CARROTS. Very cool, super-chic, simple colors, like navy & nude, with a perfect metallic pop inside!174514554282450607_KX1jYPPf_c

6. Dirty Martini Juice for the person you know who’s into their home bar… this is great, love the look & idea of it. We found it at one of our new favorite SF shops, Hudson Grace. They have all sorts of goodies I want for my home, check it out on your next shopping day.


7. Slippers for the ladies… I’m all about the Newbarks, so cute & cozy… we love the one’s with the furry inside and the slip-on’s (which Vieve & I wear to work all the time, they definitely pass as real shoes!)Screen shot 2012-12-12 at 2.37.09 PM

8. Edible gifting. Who doesn’t love some homemade jam, or a delicious pumpkin christmas bread, homemade granola, olive cookies or some pickled veg. It’s inexpensive and completely thoughtful… all wrapped up with a red bow.




9. Laura Zindel Mugs- these are bar none our favorite.  Whether you are a coffee or a tea drinker, Laura’s mugs are the perfect size and shape.  174514554282450738_9L2SCXA6_c

10.  Faliero Sarti Scarves- The yummiest, coziest cashmere in all the land!  You can never go wrong with this “never-leave-home-without-it” accessory, and we have quite the selection in store now ;).174514554282451439_ZdycNcIa_c
