We went to the Gift Show in New York City to check out the latest in stationary, gifts, home and lifestyle products in the market. Here are a few of the cool finds we know you’ll be running out to gift someone, or be equally happy to add to your own gift wish list.
PUZZLES ARE THE NEW ART
The desire to get Zen, with various products that help you get there, (hello, CBD products!) has never been more popular. While some are into the coloring book craze, we tend to go for puzzles. Now there are gorgeous ones you can put together, and you might never want to take them apart. We found a series from Jiggy, that even comes with puzzle glue, so you can turn it into art once it’s complete.
THE EYES HAVE IT
There are so many beauty products out there but All Eyes on Me Illuminating Eye Gels are unique because they are fast acting gel eye masks that stay in place. That means you don’t have to lie down while wearing them. Put them on prior to make up or after a long night and you’ll avoid puffy, tired-looking eyes. The best part? The ingredients are derived from plants, so the product is good for you, while also being vegan and cruelty-free. Ona New York
It’s hard to find a candy dish with personality, and this one shows you know how to have fun. Playful yet substantial, it can hold anything from pre-wrapped mints to chocolates, and shows you still have a child-like sensibility, even if you serve in style. Dish from Inspired Generations.
THE GIFT OF WINE IS FINE
There are gift bags for wine, but consider this: it’s canvas (re-usable and giftable) and also has a slot for two bottles! Perfect for taking to a party, or get-together where one bottle just won’t do. Available for white and rose as well, Maptotes
TIME TO RELAX
There are a lot of bath products out there, but this one was new to us. It’s Barr-Co. Original Scent Bath Tea. You don’t drink it, you use it to soak in your bath, and this one is a blend of milk, oatmeal, vanilla and vetiver. Trust us, the trend for bath teas is coming, and we love this one. Original Scent Bath tea, Barr-Co.
A CLUTCH THAT SAYS IT ALL
Perfect for a night on the town with your girlfriends or an intimate dinner with your beau, this cool bag is modern and with a nod to a classic tune. All you really need is love (and the perfect place for your phone, keys and wallet). Kent Stetson
