And a great many others fall between $100 and $200, which I’m excited about. I believe good design and superior quality comes in all forms and prices, and seeing it in action in […]

As a creative person, she also happens to have great taste. Her style is easy and feminine, with a strong appreciation for natural textures and classic […]
A great gift, to me, is something that is made with integrity, feels thoughtfully selected, and is a little bit luxurious too. It can be something small, like a handmade candle, or something quite special, like an Italian cashmere turtleneck, and should be wrapped carefully, even if the wrapping is as simple as a craft […]
Motherhood is one of the greatest pleasures in life. As exciting and joyous as it is, being a mom is also a lot of work. Whether or not you’re a mother, I think it’s wonderful that we all take a day to appreciate everything they do. Simple gestures like picking a bouquet of flowers or […]

With this in mind, I asked the lovely Amy Blessing (who expertly assembled the gorgeous array of boxes that we are currently offering in-store) for some of her tips and tricks. Here, her thoughts on everything from theme to materials, as well as a list of our boxes, available just in time for the holiday.
