gift lists with character.
when square invited me to create some unique holiday gift lists for shopping their new square market this season, i thought i’d get a little quirky with it. rather than share with you what i might be getting say, my brother, or my nieces for christmas and hanukkah this year, i thought it could be much more entertaining to share with you what i might get some of my personal heroes — julia child, the white house, wes anderson to name a few. if you follow me here often or over on twitter, you might have guessed i’ve got a mean crush on the brilliant wes anderson. oh yes, indeed. and it’s much more fun to give gifts with character — don’t you think? and what would i get wes for christmas? a master chef like julia? how might i modernize the white house?
just a few of my ideas for my beloved wes this year: press for champagne — wes likes to have chilled champagne for me at all times; the irish coffee plaid bowtie — just ‘so wes’; and the Pièce_de_résistance? this Fluorescent Pink diamond ring — i’m pretty sure wes is going to pop the question any day now, but a little reminder never hurts.

i created a wish list for julia child, another hero of mine. as a master chef, i think julia would have loved a few of these kitchen gadgets and reminders of her days cooking in paris! you can check out all my crazy gift lists here.
