My Holiday Wish List

This little guy is one of my favorites!
The first time I saw these little cuties was in Portland.
Check out the rest of the adorable gang Here.

Camilla Engman's blog was one of the first I started following a few years ago. Her creations are so peaceful and other-wordly to me. She recently started a new blog called Studio Morran where I purchased her new 2012 calendar. It's hanging on my wall above my desk right now, waiting to be opened on January 1st!

I just love this hooded jacket that was a gift from the lovely Mia Miri. So comfortable, and "Little Black Riding Hood" chic.

I really want a copy of Peter Bastiaanssen's "Art Is A Dog" book. Remember I discovered his work next to my hotel in Berlin? They had the book there, and I found it so inspiring! But they weren't selling it, and they had to find it online somewhere because it's out of print. Does anyone know where I can find one?

I love cardigans so much! Especially big, puffy, warm ones. I love the color and Tom Boy preppyness of this Wood Wood "Debbie" cardigan.

I finally received my very new and favorite clutch from Samantha Grisdale who I just met at the Craft Fair. Her pieces are so well made, and so so special.

I want an iPig!!! When I was on tour with Milow they had one of these. It's so CUTE! You tap on one ear to turn the volume up, and the other ear to turn the volume down. It's like you're petting it! And if you want to pause the song, you poke it in the eye, which I'm less comfortable with, but still love. It's so easy to travel with. Just plug in your iPod or laptop and voilà -- instant dance party!

This Frasier Fir candle by Thymes is my favorite candle for the Holidays. It smells just like a woody and slightly sweet Christmas Tree. I haven't met anyone who didn't like the way it smelled, which is why I'm putting it on my Holiday Shopping list as a great "stocking stuffer" gift idea.

I heart my iPad. And since I travel a lot, this iPad Booqbag would be perfect for me. I love all the pockets and the pen slot. It's like back-to-school shopping again (which I always sort of miss when September comes around).

I really want a kitty too. However, I don't recommend buying someone one of these unless you know that person really well. :)

And for those of you still searching for the perfect gift for that special someone... Design Sponge has some great suggestions. Everything from "DIY Gift Ideas" to "Gifts under $50".

Happy Shopping!
