Hello, this is Sarah from Haute Design. For those who are not familiar with my blog, I share a wide range of people, places and things—from incredible, sprawling countryside homes, to chic street style in Paris, to unique vintage packaging. I am thrilled to be here today, sharing some lovely things that I have come across, that I would certainly add to my Christmas list, but are also some things I would love to give. I selected a range of items, from very affordable pieces for under $20, to more luxurious gifts. Most are available worldwide for your shopping consideration.
Christmastime is so magical, and it is especially fun putting beautiful gifts together for those you love. I personally always look for a theme when it comes to gift giving—no matter how large or small a gift may be. Even something as small as dainty hair pins contained in a chic box can be a special gift for your kind neighbour, who is always sending over baking, and who is really more like family. So grab a little notebook (I always keep a mini notebook for gift planning) and take down anything that catches your eye...
01 Chocolate Fondue Pots: A lovely gift for a hostess. These chic stoneware pots, available in milk and dark chocolate, warm quickly and easily and are delicious with fresh fruit.
02 Les Exclusifs de Chanel, Beige: An intense powdery floral of natural elegance and grace. Created by CHANEL Master Perfumer Jacques Polge in 2008, a blend of new white petals and yellow gold flowers are highlighted by hints of honey that reveal its discreet sensuality—for the lady of glamour in your life.
03 Lavender–filled postcard sachets: These lovely vintage postcard sachets are pretty and sure to please. Bundle two together and tie with a ribbon, and/or give them with a luxurious robe.
04 Voluspa Maison Noir Ambre Lumiere Votive Candle in Cosmetic Jar: An amazing scent placed in a very glamorous jar. This candle is the perfect little hostess gift, and a personal favorite scent.
05 Estate Jewelry Box, Cameo: Place a necklace, chocolates, or even a lovely note inside for a surprise. This cameo box is so multi–useful and completely charming.
06 All That Remains Bobbies: Place these pins in the box shown above or pair them up with a great book. Perfect for celebrations or... just because.
07 The Swing Coat: An original piece of Fifi Lapin for the stylish lady in your life. All Fifi Lapin purchases come with a Fifi collectors card.
08 Metal Key Holder: Ladurée, the famous house of Parisian cake store, collaborated with the Japanese brand Mark's to present this collection of key holders. Choose from a cat, dog or rabbit.
09 Ice block bowl: Artistically unique, this chic bowl is a wonderful statement piece. Fill with something special or gift it by itself. (There are also vases available in the same collection)
10 Faux Fur Tippet: An on–trend, retro-inspired faux fur tippet makes a sophisticated topper for any evening ensemble, and most especially, your favorite LBD.
