Beech Square Pizza Board:Hudson Grace
FOR: The Host(ess) With The Most(ess)
KIM’S WHY: “It’s perfect for pizza or as a very impressive cheese board (plus, it looks fab hanging in your kitchen!).”
Love Middy Love Lock Beads: Love Middy
FOR: Anyone who needs to feel your love (or your extreme like)
KIM’S WHY? “Read the descriptionof these babies on our website and feel.the.love. Tammy designed the entire line (!), and this set in particular is perfect as a token of your affection or as a treat for the nester who has everything…but not these.”
The Devon Skirt: Middy N’ Me
KIM’S WHY: “She’s a beautiful print for gals amid the horsey set who believe the holiday-party-dress adage, ‘black and white is always right.'”
On Kim’s 2018 holiday wish list for her own sweet self? “I know my husband’s reading so this kinda feels unfair…but Iam looking forward to a few ‘surprises’ under the tree this year that I think our customers will probably crave as much as I do.
“For starters…these Katharine Page Menlo Sandals in Bridle Brown. They’re scrumptiously hand-made and have elegant contrast stitching (among so many other details!) that make them special. I’ve styled many pages onMiddy N’ Me’s website with this shoe’s graceful silhoutte. Here’s hoping it grace’s mine. (Hi, Honey!)”
Kim’s other New Year hope? “Sugar Paper out of L.A. has theClare V. Stripe Planner that’s bound like a book and features an exquisite interior (with tabs!). Its smart, easy-to-use layouts make life extra enjoyable to plan…and her pretty leather planner cover can be used year after year.”
Mario Luca Giusti Tumbler Set: Neiman Marcus
FOR: Anyone who likes to entertain as much as Tammy.
TAMMY’S WHY: “These four rainbow-colored acrylic tumblers are functional pieces of art. And I’m only telling you about them because some things are just too special to keep to myself!”
The Keswick: Henry x Middy N’ Me
FOR: All of Tammy’s besties this year. (Hi, Girls!)
TAMMY’S WHY? “This cutie-pie catch-all is perfect because it is so versatile: Toss it in any deep bag filled with all the things you want your hands on in a snap. Bonus? The fox is adorable and the pom-pom lets people know you are on trend since pom-poms make people smile.”
Canyon Dress in Indigo: Love Middy
FOR: You. Or, Tammy…we’re not really sure.
TAMMY’S WHY? “I can’t even tell you how much I love Kim’s Canyon Dress collection in every color, but especially in Indigo. Every time I put this on I feel like I’m going to rock my daytime appointments, or my night on the town with my hubs. I think you will, too.”
And what’s Miss Tammy looking forward to finding under her 2018 Christmas tree? “This seasonally themed box—one of the best monthly subscriptions on the market—is brimming with luxurious French products for you and your home. It’s ideal for sending to those you care about who may live out of town (or, for hoping someone might send to you).”
And FYI, a special someone in Tammy’s life will be receiving the Classic Mini Kiss…Miss Kelly Wearstler’s all-brass sculpture made of the most beautiful metal. “It’ll look fantastic on anyone’s desk or nightstand, and is an especially artistic way to say I love you.”
Hand-Picked Candles for Love Middy by Simply Curated
FOR: Hostesses. Hosts. Best friends. And maybe yourself.
SARA’S WHY? “These are the best hostess gift of the season (or any season, for that matter). With scents ranging from a crisp and clean Lavender Vanilla to the woodsy Smoke & Embers, there’s something for everyone. Bonus? After the clean-burning wood wick melts the soy wax for 75 hours (truth)…the 22-karat gold glass glows just as beautifully with a Fig Old Fashioned as it is a flame.”
Williams-Sonoma Spiced Chestnut Everything
FOR: Teachers, mail carriers, your acupuncturist, hair stylist…basically, anyone who makes you feel better than you did when you woke up.
SARA’S WHY? “Personally, I love anything in this corner of Williams-Sonoma’s goods; but a fave gift to give is the hand soap and lotion duo in its neat little metal caddy. Because it’s ideal to display near any sink (power room, guest bath, kitchen sink, tack room sink), this set is unisex, utilitarian. and the universally subtle scent delivers the right amount of ‘warmth’ for any setting. So relaxing and not overpowering in the slightest.”
Photo Coasters by Shutterfly
FOR: Grandparents, fam members, friends who like looking at themselves (and you).
SARA’S WHY? “Seriously, these are awesome. Note-to-you-last-minute selves..they take a few days to make, but wow: Such a thoughtful gift that’ll last for years. Simply upload your choice of photos to the site and Shutterfly will do the rest. Excellent for grandparents and friends alike to capture great moments from the previous year. (And come on: Unless you were raised in a barn, who doesn’t use a coaster, right? Wink.)
On Sara’s wishlist? Middy N Me Tunics. “I always feel so pulled together and presentable as soon as I slip one on. They’re great over satin cigarette pants for dressy days and even better with jean and boots for more casual events like, oh, going to the grocery store. I love how I feel in them. Love how they fit. And while the patterns are fab, this black though….”
Williams-Sonoma Croissants (The classic ones)
For: Thank you’s or surprise holiday treats for anyone and everyone.
Jen’s Why: “Years ago I got these as a surprise Christmas gift, and ever since then I’ve wanted everyone I know to enjoy the same pure pleasure of baking and eating them. With these classic croissants, you have to take them out the night before you want them so they can rise on a baking sheet (you know…so you can feel like you’ve done something hands-on), but that’s about all it takes to come off looking like a baking rockstar…and who in your tribe couldn’t use a little of that? (P.S. We’re not sponsored by W-S or anything. Sara and I just love the company’s stuff.”)
What’s on Jen’s holiday want list? “I have to steal one of Kim’s: The rustic and wholehearted originality of Tammy’s Love Middy Beads (the Love Lockones) blew me away the sec I saw them. And because I only buy handbags that are art to me, I’m pining for a Love Middy Jude Crossbody in Buzz Love…but with the Desert Love strap (#heyagirlcanadream). Though if Imma completely honest, here’s hoping early 2019 will bring something from the love of my life that sparkles as much as his eyes and our future. (Wink, and #abouttomarryabovemystation.)
