You like the way that they walk,
And it’s chill to hear them talk,
And you can always make them smile,
If you keep gifts like these on file.
The Snuggle Bunny
Cater to her softer side with a throw from the Oyuna Amdral home collection (Threshold, 3419 Sacramento Street, 415-409-1966), a pair of cashmere undies (Ver Unica, 437 Hayes Street, 415-431-0688), and socks (Catherine Jane, 1234 9th Avenue, 415-664-1855); or a friend from the SPCA.
Indulge her highbrow taste with an Alexis Bonbon Hatbox. For lunching with the ladies, a pair of ballerina skimmers from Flats Napa Valley. And for the ultimate glamour-puss, a piece of jewelry (or two) from Annette Ferdinandsen (Metier, 355 Sutter Street, 415-989-5395).
BlackBerry? Check. Cell phone? Duh. iPod? Of course. Now give her one of Margaret O’Leary’s Cashmere Cozies (Margaret O’Leary, 2400 Fillmore Street, 415-771-9982) to hold them. For larger goods, a handbag by Ananas does the trick (Dish, 541 Hayes Street, 415-252-5997). Or make filing more fun with Cavallini & Co.’s jazzy folders.
Give her next soiree a jump start with Table Topics, a new game developed by a Bay Arean. Set the mood with a Burn candle (International Orange, 2044 Fillmore Street, second floor, 415-563-5000) and monogrammed napkins from Jan de Luz.
Give her Polo’s Pink Pony tennis balls, the proceeds from which go to cancer research. Complete the picture with a monogrammed grosgrain ribbon racket cover. Or do as she does and donate money to charity (in her name, of course).
Nothing says “I rock” like a chunky necklace from Coreen Cordova (Saks Fifth Avenue, 384 Post Street, 415-986-4300). A gift certificate to Blade Runners will help her funkify her tresses. Then top off the look with a pair of Ray Ban Wayfarers — yes, you heard right (Marina Sol Eyewear, 2128 Chestnut Street, 415-749-0383).
Pony up any of the above and she’s sure to say: “Hey, me and you should hit the hay!”
