Alice in Wonderland calendar Rifle Paper Co Alice in Wonderland Wall Calendar ($26)
Rifle Paper Co is known for their whimsically feminine prints. This Alice in Wonderland themed calendar would fit right in in your favorite lit-lover’s study. It’s limited edition, though, so get it while it’s hot!

Giraffe at Home throw ($178)
The world’s softest blankets come in several luxurious neutral tones. I first encountered this brand when I was a salesperson for the kids department at a department store, and customers would flock to the store for baby versions of these blankets to use as baby shower gifts.

kate spade new york “drink me “ wine tote ($20)
I often try to buy gifts for people that they would not buy themselves. Nothing fits this description better than a $20 canvas sack for your wine. Fill the tote with a bottle of your bestie’s favorite chardonnay for bonus points. Molly Hatch icon mugs

Molly Hatch icon mug ($14)
Have a friend who loves personalized presents? But how many monogrammed mugs does a girl really need? Step it up a notch with these inked mugs by artist Molly Hatch. There’s an icon mug for each letter of the alphabet (A is for Anchor!), to be released a bit at a time.

Nikki McClure art print ($12)
These monochrome graphic prints are simple and clean – perfect for the millennial art taste. McClure conveys complicated messages in simple ways that leave you wanting more. My personal favorite is “Gravity.”

Bella J candles ($25)
A classic gift with a twist: these lightly scented candles come with a surprise charm bracelet inside the candle. Light the candle for a few hours and dig out the pouch with your goodie for the gift that keeps on giving.
