As much as a luxurious Mother’s Day gift can be a nice treat, any mom will tell you that it isn’t necessary to go all out; handmade gifts and cards are always special. After our Mother’s Day lunch with Honey Hi, my friend and gifting expert Simone LeBlanc showed everyone at the gathering how to […]
Last week I co-hosted a Mother’s Day lunch in my home with my friend and frequent collaborator Suzanne Hall of Chalkboard Mag. Gifting guru Simone LeBlanc designed the romantic floral menus and place cards, Barrett Prendergast of Valleybrink Road put together beautiful bouquets of dusty green and deep maroon florals, and we set the table […]
I love to take the time to wrap my holiday gifts in a beautiful way. I think this makes the process of opening the gift even more special for the recipient, and shows them how much care you put into selecting it. A stylish wrapping paper always works but there are plenty of other creative […]

As with earlier this week, I’ve often sung the praises of Simone LeBlanc and her amazing gift giving services. When she welcomed us into her home earlier this year, she gave me a sneak peek at the incredible new studio that she was creating in the backyard – and I begged her to let us come back and feature it when complete.
A while back, I shared all the beautiful details of Stephanie Schur’s baby shower, not the least of which was the activity for the celebration, created by Simone LeBlanc.
I’ve found that in giving gifts, the presentation – if done right – can be just as impactful as the the gift itself. With the holiday wrapping season officially upon us, who better to share her tips for extraordinary finishes than gift-giving extraordinaire, Simone LeBlanc.
I met Simone years ago when I hosted a baby shower for my very close friend Jessica, and later reconnected through Lauren Soloff and Beatrice Valenzuela. An artist, Parsons Paris-educated designer, personal stylist and private lifestyle concierge, Simone combined her many talents to form an incredible boutique gifting studio – which I recently featured – and has quickly established herself as one of the most trusted resources in inspired giving.
