The Weekend Dish: Holiday Gifts


Happy Weekend Friends! I’m starting to get into the holiday spirit and have started some of my Christmas shopping! To help you choose unique and thoughtful gifts for your loved ones this year we’ve complied a list of A & O approved holiday gifts and gift guides.

Born & Bread Women's 2010 Gift Guide

Sarah and I are so excited to introduce you to the greatest new fashion and lifestyle blog around curated by Sarah’s sister Julie and her best friend Lauren. Check in for daily insights into outfits, accessories, skin care and more from these darling New York fashion girls.  I personally was very inspired by their post on Ali MacGraw and the holiday gift guides they put together for men and women are sensational.


Morgan Parish Moores Pouch. Recommend by the GQ Women’s Gift Guide 2010 and by LEH personally (as I happen to own one)! This stunning little clutch adds a pop of sophistication to any outfit this winter. The deep emeraldy green color is perfectly on trend with this seasons military coats, furs and swing coats.

Jessie's Girl Earrings

Jessie’s Girl handmade jewelry. Stylish and sweet jewelry from our friend Jessie. Win these stunning earrings just by commenting on our post here by midnight tonight! Shop her etsy store or visit her Holiday Sale this weekend in LA.

Mayu Infinity Scarf

Mayu Infinity Scarf. Fair Trade products, hand-knit with Alpaca by women artisans in Peru. So pretty and so cozy warm. Mayu was started by Sarah’s friend Kate and we will be featuring more of her next week when she shares her Day in the Food Life with our readers!

Martijn Deck Towel

Deck Towel. My brother Buck started selling these linen towels he made in his tiny NY apartment bedroom while getting ready to graduate from college this May. Now they are featured in GQ magazine’s Best Stuff of the Year (Decemebr 2010). Prefect for the beach, picnics, soccor games, sofa throw blanket, bed spread, table cloth or plane blanket. Truly a super functional and chic gift for the people you know who have everything.

Happy Gifting!
