Watch it!

For my eldest son: a polycarbonate watchband for his iPod Nano. Techy AND cool, you can even wear it to school…


For my sister’s stocking, News from the Nail Bar by Christy Powell, a great, gossipy holiday read. Kindle or paper back…

Cruelty-free Christmas

For my vegan sister-in-law, KOTUR’s Espey sequin minaudière – because it’s cruelty-free, and because she’s a star!

For my littlest ones, new from their favorite book series, Max and Mei. Bilingual Chinese and English stories for reading on dark winter evenings.
