Camille here from Style Notes, & I'm thrilled to share my gift picks of 2009 with the so.chic readers! Since I'm an event planner by day and style blogger by every other waking minute, it should come as no surprise that I'm fairly obsessed with "entertaining-focused" gifts for the chic hostess. In fact, I'd be pretty thrilled to find any of these goodies in my own stocking! So enjoy, & CHEERS to a very festive holiday season!
Bond Street Chocolates (top)
This is one of New York City's most innovative chocolatiers, and one taste of these alcohol-infused bonbons will show you why. Hand molded in-house, each chocolate shell is filled with an intoxicating blend of heavy cream, chocolate and Bourbon, Tequila, Elderflower Liqueur, Vodka, or Armagnac. Yes please!
These Lexon cups are pure genius: see how the saucers double as lids? I love the clean simplicity of polished chrome... very Euro-chic.
Every hostess needs a stylish set of monogrammed notecards for jotting down invitations & thank-you notes. These lovelies from sugar paper are the perfect blend of casual+luxe, with letterpress printing in raspberry ink & shimmering gold foil.
