Explore | Holiday Gifts


It has become an annual tradition for me to curate little holiday gifts for my wedding clients and also to send out holiday cards to my friends. I absolutely love traveling and am lucky enough to take several trips a year. These gifts have become my way of sharing a bit of those travels with my clients. It’s also really fun for me to hunt for the perfect little gifts in each place I visit and then to bring it all together into a very unique and personal gift. No two years are the same!

This year’s featured cities were Newport, Rhode Island; Cincinnati, Ohio; Sayulita, Mexico; Taipei, Taiwan; Dallas, Texas; and Vancouver, Canada.

Many thanks to Brown Fox Calligraphy for providing calligraphy on my holiday cards again this year! Here are the fronts of my holiday card and all the gift tags this year. The cities featured on my holiday card were: Dillon Beach, CA; Taipei, Taiwan; Victoria, Canada; Dallas, TX; Austin, TX; Joshua Tree, CA; Los Angeles, CA; Boston, MA; and Phoenix, AZ.

And here are the backs of the cards.

This was one of my favorite finds this year, since it’s a miniature version of those popular midcentury modern planters that came from a cute shop in Cincinnati, Ohio.

A very tasty find that embraces my love of whiskey: WhistlePig fudge! And some very cute loose leaf tea from a shop in Vancouver.

These were really beautiful little mezcal bowls I found in Mexico, hand-carved from coconut shells. I just love the look of these, and they can easily be used for a ring dish if not for shots of mezcal.

One final roundup of these delightful gift packages!
