With only 17 days left until Christmas, I’m making things easy for you with a rundown of my favorite gifts from my three stores. This time of year, I like to curate the stores with unique pieces that I think would be special not only for those on my list, but also for those who come in with lists of their own. And, I’m especially excited that we launched our DIANI Cookie Box and DIANI Candle just in time to make the cut!
The DIANI Mazuri Candle that I talked about in my last blog post was something I wanted to be able to share in time for the holiday season. Designed with the help of my best friend Gail Bryson, this candle is like a scented snapshot of my life story so far. Made with essential oils of amyris, bergamot, oak moss, and patchouli and hand poured into a crackled ceramic jar. This is the perfect gift for anyone who loves the fragrant kind of relaxation.
For the person who wants to treat the cookie lovers in their lives, this gift is perfect. The DIANI cookie box holds 12-16 cookies of your choice, or for a little extra, we’ll pack it for you with delicious cookies from our next door neighbor, Renaud’s Patisserie. Head to our Cookie Box blog post for more details.
For those who love to be inspired by home design, Travel Home is the perfect coffee table topper. This present will have them flipping through pages and gaining creative ideas for the new year for not only home inspiration, but travel destinations too. Why not start 2020 with a fresh new perspective on home decor and off the beaten path travel?
I must admit, Golden Goose is always on my Christmas wish list. These sneakers are my wardrobe go-to for everyday. The comfort and effortless style are easy to match with a pair of denim jeans and a cozy sweater. It’s the perfect gift for someone who has fashion in their blood. And the sparkle detail is sure to add a little pep in their step as they stroll into the New Year.
Stocking stuffers are always a fun challenge, but often the gifts that come in little packages are the ones that keep on giving. Our new collection of nail polishes from Smith & Cult are just that, and they are vegan and cruelty-free which adds a little joy to the season. Bite Your Kiss, Doe My Dear, and 1972 can be mixed and matched, and to make it even more special, place them into the Anya Hindmarch travel case. Great for the girl on the go!
For the person who likes something particularly unique, mix and match a combination of handcrafted serving dishes. This is such a gracious gift for the one who loves to host and curate kitchenware sets. We have a variety of hand made and hand painted platters and bowls for your loved ones to plate delicious recipes for their guests. The possibilities are endless.
Sweater weather is upon us in Southern California, which is a welcome change from the November summer we’ve had. I think this camel colored Madeline Thompson poncho is the perfect gift for the fashion forward in your family. Or you can opt for a new suede boot, like this Loeffler Randall Joni Low Western Boot. Two very fitting options for any stylish lady.
The holidays can be a little stressful, so I hope that these suggestions might help relieve a little of that and allow you to focus on the joy of the season. And if you don’t see something here that you like, our elves at DIANI, DIANI Shoes and DIANI Living are working hard to help with all your holiday needs! Stop in anytime or call our excellent customer care team and we’ll get creative in helping you find the perfect gifts.
Sending you all much love and joy,
