It’s that time of year. The holiday season is one of my favorites. It’s all about spending quality time with family, festive evening gatherings, gorgeous decorations all over the city, generosity, and goodwill… A few lovely readers asked about my favorite items to give. I’m not one for gift guides and wish lists, but I figured I would devote a few posts to items I’m looking forward to gifting this season.
I’m a perfectionist about most things. I love indulging loved ones. Writing a note of gratitude. Meticulously wrapping beautiful packages and parcels. The art of the well thought out gift. My favorite things to gift have been books and items picked up on my travels. Admittedly, I have a difficult time not instantly sharing books and travel finds.
I think Oscar Wilde said it best. I always travel with a notebook. Perfect for quick sketches, endless notes and all the things that come to mind when I have the luxury of quiet. To me there’s something very satisfying about pen and paper. And yes, it’s always fun to go back and read through my notes. The items below are dedicated to the jet-setters in my life.

** Moleskines, along with notebooks from Muji and Archie Grand are perennial favorites that make great stocking stuffers.
