Modern Moose

Could these clocks BE any cuter?! I was lucky enough to check them out in person at the Gift Show, and they truly are pieces of art!

Modern Moose Clocks are made in the US and use birch plywood and non-toxic water based ink in their designs.

They start around $40, and come in a ton of adorable animals and characters!

Cupcake Carousel

Back to School time usually means back to baking!  And, if you’ve ever been in charge of making (and transporting) cupcakes you KNOW what a hassle that can be!

Enter your new best friend: The Cupcake Carousel

It holds up to 24 cupcakes, and can also be used as a stand for serving! The carousel is $27, and you can check it out here: Fox Run Cupcake Carousel


Mommy & Me

With most kids back at school, I thought this was a sweet gift for mama’s to give to their daughters.

Erin Pelicano creates these beautiful Mother / Daughter necklace sets that will keep you close to your little one’s heart.

The one pictured above is sterling silver and is $85.

Wine is the go-to gift for a hostess or housewarming, but the old standby just got a new spin in the form of a candle!

Rewined Candles use recycled wine bottles to create delicious wine-scented candles.

They are $28, and come in: Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio, Merlot, Champagne, and Seasonal Scents such as Sangria.



This is a great gift for a child age 3+ (that I found at the Gift Show).

Magna Tabs uses a magnetic stylus to help the child learn to hold and control a writing instrument. The stylus pulls up the beads to create a solid line.

They come in upper case, lower case, cursive, and numbers and are around $20.

Kitty Lover

If you need a gift for the cat lover in your life, then look no further then Kitty Jones: a super chic brand that caters to felines and their owners.

I stumbled upon KJ at the Gift Show, and I have to say I think this is the first cat-based post I am writing. It’s not because I don’t like them, I just don’t see many brands that focus on gifts for cats!

Pictured above: Kitty Grass ($14), Felted Wool Ball ($8), Catnip Mouse ($16), and the king of all cat gifts, a Cat Teepee ($120).
