Pretty Pins for the Holiday Season

It's been quite the busy December for me this year, so I've fallen a bit behind on my posts. I had a wedding in Lake Placid, friends over for Christmas cocktails every night, and a family party last Saturday (you can see more personal snippets on instagram). This weekend is proving to be just as busy - all good things and a fun kind of busy, but still exhausting enough where my inner grinch is starting to come out! I'm rounding up a few pins to revive my holiday spirit and get me back into the swing of things.


Happy holiday season!

Pretty Pins Just for Fun

After a week of just gift guides I'm taking it easy on future gift guide posts. I'll maybe do a few more, but every blogger is doing them at the moment and I don't want to overwhelm! That being said, I'm doing a round up of pins that made me smile and are just really fun (and are potentially inspired by the towerhouse instagram account. Enjoy!

Happy Wednesday!

Gifts for Guys (That Aren't Socks, Cuff Links, or Boxers)

What is it about the men in your life that make gift giving so hard!? I'm kicking myself for making an Easter basket for my Dad, because I had great gifts for him - but the smile on his face for receiving a basket for the first time in over 40 years was priceless. Do you follow on the Towerhouse instagram - you might have seen the picture and smiled too!That being said, I'm back to square one with him (but have a few ideas in the pipeline). Hopefully one of the below ideas will help with any gift giving block:

First Aid Kit from Best Made Company (or anything from Best Made Company)

Mini Nespresso Machine with Milk Frother + pods as a stocking stuffer (if he already has a Keurig,  Death Wish coffee k-cups are always a winner!)

Vintage Golf  Drinking Glasses (an array of fun ones on Etsy!)

Customized Famous Portrait (an epic gift I've given in the past - that's my sister!)

Playboy Party Jokes book

Are you sick of these round ups yet?


Gifts for the Sun Worshiper

As a dedicated beach-goer I love getting anything that makes the experience seem a bit more luxurious or adds a beachy vibe when I'm in the deep, dark depths of winter with no PB escape. If you follow the Towerhouse instagram you'll see I make it down there often and am all about the #TowerhouseTravel life. These are a few things that have been on my wishlist for awhile, that I think the sun worshiper in your life might enjoy too.

LL Bean bag (perfect for everything, but especially the beach!)

Now I'm ready for the beach myself!

Gifts for Someone Who Has Everything

Everyone has that one person on his or her list where they have everything and need or want nothing. (Hi Mom and Dad - are you reading this??) It's my friends and family like this that have me getting the most creative. I've posted a few ideas on instagram in the past, so be sure to follow along. Below are a few picks of mine that are unique, thoughtful, and not as expected! Hopefully something inspires you here.

Bespoke Anya Hindmarch Gift (a little pricey, but they have really amazing customization options available - you can even write a message in your own handwriting! The Daily Edited has a slightly more budget friendly option.)

A shipment of Georgia Peaches (Florida Oranges are another fave of mine to give!)

A credit towards a class they might be interested in. I was thinking of doing a Christie's one for my Dad but the dates didn't work out for him. Other fun ideas include calligraphy, language, or a continuing education class at NYU.

A donation to his or her favorite charity! I did this for my grandmother one year and she was so touched. Pairing the note card with flowers added an extra special touch.

Wishing you luck! 


Happy Thanksgiving!

Wishing all of my followers a Happy Thanksgiving. I hope you're enjoying the holiday with your closest family and friends. Thank you so much for following me here and on instagram over the years, you can't imagine what it means to me!

Lots of love,

Gifts for the Traveler

I have a few family members that are, like me, dedicated travelers (check out the Towerhouse instagram to see where #TowerhouseTravels). They are sometimes my most favorite people to give gifts to, because it's always a bit of a challenge to find something that is chic, easy to carry, and functional. Finding something I know they'll love is so rewarding and the best feeling. Whether your recipient has to travel for work, fun, (or both!) I don't think he or she will be disappointed with anything listed below. 

Gift Card to Artifact Uprising (the recipient can choose to do a book with all his or her favorite pictures or have pictures printed. I've talked about my love for them in the past!)

Cuyuna Travel Case Set (comes in an array of different colors + can be used day to day too)

Mophie External Battery

CEREAL Magazine Subscription (they have amazing travel guides too!)

White + Warren Travel Wrap (more colors available)

Gifts for the Dog Lover

This is a shout out to my Mom and Grandma (Have you seen Thor and Creme Brulee on the Towerhouse instagram?!). In my family we give gifts to the dog (he loooves opening them) but I opted to round up a few things that were a bit more "human friendly" this time around. Here are a few gift ideas for the dog fanatic in your life.

Dog Topiary (feat. french bulldog, but they have many others)

Gifts for the #BlueandWhiteForever Believer

I have a few friends and family members that are big fans of anything blue and white (including myself!) so I'm rounding up a few things they may like, in both style and color. From desk decor to wall art I tried my best to find an array of fun and pretty touches that I personally love. Did you see my desk on the Towerhouse instagram? You'll see a few familiar faces below! 

Happy shopping!

Gifts for the Linen Lover

As a linen fanatic I loooooove getting anything in this department. If you follow the Towerhouse instagram you're sure to have noticed my dedicated #TowerhouseStyle pics featuring India Amory + Matouk. I'm sure you have a list of friends and family members who feel the same way, so I'm sharing a few more "off the radar" picks that are chic, personal, and fun to give! 

India Amory Table Cloths (and robes! they are adorable)

Gifts for the Stationary Lover

I'm a bit of a stationary nut and I like to think there are more of us out there than you would think! I have a few friends who I regularly correspond with via mail and I still swear by a paper calendar. Call me old fashioned but there is nothing better than writing a letter, except receiving them. I've rounded up a list of my personal favorites to give and things I use on a daily basis:

Calling & Business Cards by Nancy Nikko Designs (an array of designs are offered here!)
