They say some good things come in small packages. You say prove it. We say sure, we’ll do just that — with our gift guide for gals.
Her dorm days are over; her love of delivery food and Gin Rummy are not. Now she can deal Beverly Hills Hotel playing cards and leave porcelain take-out containers from Lorena Barrezueta’s Gourmet Collection strewn about (ReForm School, 4014 Santa Monica Boulevard, Silver Lake; 323-906-8660).
She’s an American — but not in Paris. She needs Breakfast Lunch Tea: The Many Little Meals of Rose Bakery to make simple, scrumptious scones and pizzettes at home. Even if she’s a staunch stemocrat, she’ll swoon over extra-delicate, hand-etched Kikatsu glassware (OK, 8303 West Third Street; 323-653-3501).
Knotty or Nice
Kiel Mead’s Forget Me Knot ring (Show, 1722 North Vermont Avenue; 323-644-1960) is a gentle reminder (of you, your birthday, etc.) available in sterling silver and yellow or white gold. Or she can take note in a Hammerpress test print journal.
Dressed-up basics like Bless’s sparkly black vine earbuds (South Willard, 8038 West Third Street; 323-653-6153) will put a twinkle in her eye. Lara Bohinc’s large plait bangle (Bird, 8428 Melrose Place, West Hollywood; 323-651-9920) will do the same for her wrist.
She’s all set on chill pills, but what she could use is a stash of Jane Inc.’s Effervescent Holiday Bath Salts (Stark Waxing Studio, 3335 West Sunset Boulevard, Silver Lake; 323-666-3335), The Paul Newman Collection box set, and a tin of Momma Reiner’s fudge-covered marshmallows.
And wrapping with Whimsy Press’s new holiday papers will keep Operation Chrismukkah cute.
