Hannah & April’s Holiday Gift Guide
On a recent trip to New People, I discovered the perfect stocking stuffer: MT Japanese masking tape. Get one for yourself so that all of your packages will be uniquely wrapped.
Set of 5 for $18
Just genius. Deadwood, the Complete Series. Ian McShane slays me, seriously.
Very cute retro-patterned glasses from IKEA.
$5.99 for a pack of 6
Turquoise Chopper Headphones at Urban Outfitters. Making listening to tunes at work fun.
Über lovely Eames Rocking Chair to dress up the old abode.
Dusty Groove: I have never been to this store, only bought from their site, but they have some seriously great music. I have never regretted anything that I bought from them. I’m sending gift certificates to far-flung friends who I am not sure of what they already have in their collection.
Funk Soul Sisters: this collection of some awesome ladies layin’ down seriously funky tracks. Have you ever heard Spanky Wilson’s version of “Sunshine of Your Love”? Get this just for that alone.
A Certain Ratio: Funk meets Punk in Manchester, England. You may recognize their excellent cover of “Shack Up.”
I love to read magazines and what is better than a gift that arrives fresh and new each month?
Bust: my kind of feminism: strong, crafty, girlie, smart, creative, and sexy.
Harper’s: a great way to learn about our world no matter if you have 10 minutes or an hour to read.
Ever walk through a mall and stop to look in the jewelry store window and wonder, “Who wears that stuff?” If you like unusual, artisan jewelry, try Robert Redford’s Sundance catalog. Well-made, unique pieces.
My pick for my mom who loves Southwest style:
Expansive Turquoise Ring
For my Lady Friends
Holly GoNightly Sleep Mask: Just like Audrey Hepburn!
Pacifica candles, soaps and perfumes
These natural scents are captivating and pleasant without all the chemicals in commercial products.
For Paul, my super-cool, super-geek friend:
Star Trek Enterprise Bottle Opener
What I Asked for…
I am a big Edward Gorey fan, so I wanted this lithograph from his Gashlycrumb Tinies from the Signal catalog.
