I was debating creating Christmas gift guides because I know there are so many wonderful guides already floating around the internet, but then I thought it might be fun to see what I could come up with all-in-white. I’ll be publishing a few guides over the next couple of weeks so as to not overload everyone, but to also get us into the generous holiday gift-giving spirit.
I’m kicking things off with a “for the cook” guide. While I adore my kitchen, I’m not much of a cook. My go-to handmade pastas and pizzas are top-notch, but beyond those staples, I’m just an average cook. I do like to bake though, so some of these items are good for both the chef and the baker in your life!
Le Creuset dutch oven, Le Creuset large spatula, Martha Stewart kitchen towels, Kate Spade polka dot apron, KitchenAid Artisan stand mixer, KitchenAid pasta attachments, Peugeot salt and pepper set, GlucksteinHome linen napkins, Sophie Conran for Portmerion pie dish, OXO produce keeper, Stelton ice bucket, marble bowl, Godinger marble cheese board, Cuisinart knife set, Joseph cutting board
3 days away and still lots to do.
I’m all for the one-stop shopping experience. This year I managed to cram my Christmas gift shopping list into four stops, including stores where I had to go anyway to buy supplies for my own holiday survival kit (ie. the wine & spirits store).
Hopefully you’re getting near the bottom of the list and maybe, like me, you’re already done (!). Either way, ain’t nothin’ wrong with taking a little peak at what’s happening at one of our fave all-around go-to suppliers: the Paper Source.
If not for this Christmas, surely other occasions will come up to justify a little bit of this:
Paper cardstock tree house, $29.95
Smencils smell deelish and are made from 100% recycled paper. Perfect for decorating a paper tree house! $15.95 for a yummy 10-pack

- Printed in Italy utensil paper, $3.75 for a 20″ x 28″ sheet
- Monogram letter press stationary, $6.50 for 10 flat cards
- Donkey memo paper (includes 140 blank slips), $12.95
For these and more visit the Paper Source.
Thought I’d put together a gift guide for the stylish workaholics. We – I mean they – might like to be treated to something functional and beautiful this holiday!
