Gift Guide 2014 | Black + White edition

giftguide - black and white

Looking back at my archives, it seems that I do gift guides every 2 years for some reason!  This year I thought I’d do it a little differently and rather than finding gifts for specific people like the ladies or gents, I focused on themes, like color and material.  So to start off 2014’s gift guides, I’m starting with my favorite finds in black and white…I definitely wouldn’t mind finding a few of these in my stocking this year!

1. Leather tassels by Building Block | 2. Porcelain ornament from Ferm Living | 3. & 4. Quilted tote and catchall from Clare Vivier | 5. Semicircle cutting board by Ferm Living | 6. Arrowhead dopp kit from Izola | 7. Stocking from Ferm Living | 8. Sugarloaf candles from PELLE Designs | 9. Double sided notebook via Poketo | 10. FashionABLE scarf designed by Erin Loechner

Lots more ideas over at our Pinterest board!

If you’re familiar at all with the site Food52, then you may already know about their store called Provisions.  If not, absolutely check it out for beautiful wares for the kitchen, dining room, and overall home.  They recently launched their Summer wedding collection which is just chock full of things I wish I had room for in my kitchen.  Although they don’t have a formal wedding registry set up, a lot of the items are great as gifts, especially their Anniversary wine box set that holds bottles to be enjoyed on your first, third and fifth wedding anniversaries.  Another favorite are the Perceval steak knives, especially in the pistachio color because I’m obsessed with green and they’re such a lovely shade.  Check out the rest of their site for even more ideas!
