Gift guide 2012 | Brooklyn booze edition

 Brooklyn alcohol themed gift bag

So I’m not much of a drinker, but I know plenty of people who are, and at the holidays, booze is a great hostess gift (or so I’m told 🙂  All these bottles hail from the wonderful Brooklyn borough, so feel free to buy a bottle of each and support your local distilleries!

Dabney Lee

Brooklyn notebooks from Dabney Lee

Last week I popped over to DUMBO to check out the scene after Sandy, and came across the new Dabney Lee store on Washington St.   Inside are tons of options for monogrammed stationery, trays, jewelry, iphone cases, you name it, they can probably monogram it!  Perfect for the preppy bride looking for fun favors or gifts for the bridal party!

Monogrammed keychains

I almost died when I saw these monogrammed keychains and necklaces…look at all the colors you can do them in!  They’ve got a 6 week lead time so you’ve got to order ahead of time if you want them in time for your event.

Registry redux: Astack candlesticks

As an interior designer, I’m constantly on the hunt for fabulous accessories and decor pieces for clients and I’m always tempted to write about them here, but dont since I’m clearly not a design blog.  But I’ve finally figured out a way around that!  So many things I come across would make for great registry or bridal gifts, so I’m starting a new column called Registry Redux, and in a nutshell, its pretty much anything I would have wanted to register for when I was getting married!  We’re not talking crockpots here people, we’re talking serious modern design….hope you guys enjoy!

These Astack candlesticks from Helgo are a new favorite of mine…you can buy pieces in multiple colors and stack til your little hearts content for multiple configurations.  Available in the US from The Vitrine and Gretel (on sale!!).
