Pie Kawaii Holiday Gift Guide

Christmas is just a little over two weeks away so here are Pie's picks for some unique gift ideals. Just beware, some are so kawaii you may want them for yourself. There is a great holiday sale going on over at Lesley Evers, 30% off  many items, plus free shipping. How about one of her new line of signature silk scarves. One size fits all!

 

Official Kawaii-ness!

1. Yes, I am featuring two of these speical edition Diana cameras cause they are both just too groovy to choose between. This is the Metropolis and below (8) is the Latitude. 2. Love this Fossil Key-Per tote 3. Sagaform teapot 4. Fun owl pasta bowl set from Rachel Ray 5. The prettiest wasbi style tape from Cavallini 6. A must read for those interested in fashion & photography, Grace: A Memoir 7. Love this funky phone from Modcloth 9. A lovely Sagaform storage container (perfect for biscuits or tea cakes) to go with your teapot 10. A cozy Pendleton plaid blanket, I love its vintage look.

 

For anyone on your list that loves to accessorize their gadgets, I love love LOVE this iPhone Hard Case by Gelaskins. You can create your own custom design, as I did above or choose from their stable of unique artists including new designs by Charlie Harper. The print quality is gorgeous and they have them to fit iPhones 3 thru 5. They also offer a wide array of device skins and right now if you order 3 items you get a 4th free!

 

If you want to give or get a lovely coffee table photo book this season, then this is the one. A luscious printing of work created by my very talented friend Diego Uchitel.

 

  I bought this very well priced Brother Sewing Machine last year, with the ideal that this old dog might learn a new trick. Though my grandmother tried to interest me in it, I never learned much past repairing a button or hem. My sister in-law used it to make 3 sets of curtains for me, including the lovely jade set above. My only contribution was threading the bobbin. So I'm planning to take lessons at Sew L.A., a very cool shop in Atwater Village. They offer one day workshop style classes for beginners through advance levels.

 

Near the top of my personal wish list is this lovely retro Cavallini label set. With over 100 labels this set is perfect for any ephemera fanatics such as myself.

 

Few people would be unhappy to receive a lovely box of something tasty. Especially if that box is from Cacao Atlanta Chocolate Company. Owner Kristen Hard travels the world for the highest quality organic ingredients and each piece is handcrafted to perfection.

 

And though it will not be released till May 31st you can now pre-ordrer the book I did with nail artist Madeline Poole. I am pretty excited to see the finished product.
