Want to give something truly unique? Then go with original art or vintage finds via Etsy. I have updated my own Etsy Shop with some special items including this 11x14 archival fiber print from a favorite shoot I did with Patrick Swayze. It is signed and stamped on the back, only 2 available. More of my own work is available here and a collection of amazing vintage and antique photographs, cabinet cards and tintypes here.
Also check out my carefully curated collection of amazing vintage items like this super cute swim cap, a fab Figgio pitcher from Norway, a beautiful set of rare Spode china and a very unique collection of German Photography magazines from the 50s. You can also get 15% off shop wide through the end of the month with promo code: HOLIDAY2016

Starting with the top row: a stylish leather Orla Kiely Jeanie Bag and this Orla pen set makes a great stocking stuffer. The Leica Sofort is a new instant Polaroid style camera with an extra groovy design. It comes in three fun colors and can use the Fuji Instax film. It is a bit hard to find, on back order with most online retailers so getting it by Christmas may be difficult. I did see Amazon will have the Leica film available by the 18th. So they just may have some cameras available again then too. Just keep checking!
Middle: I'm quite smitten with Smeg's electric tea kettle which is available in a many glorious colors. While old school style Agendas are making a comeback and this one by Rifle paper is pretty keen. I love love this Sylvia Hood inspired needlepoint Owl Pillow by Trina Turk and how kawaii is this cat patterned Orla backpack.
Bottom: Sticking with our feline theme, two types of purrfect cat eye glasses, readers and sunglasses both by Kate Spade. Another camera I'm lusting for, this compact Pentax-Q-S1, the size of a point & shoot but with the function of an SLR with the ability to change lenses and it comes in pink! Finally, hit the road with this great little vintage style bike by Raleigh, one of the few I found for under $300!
