When you are a Jew with a kid, I think it is really really important to try to make Hanukah as fun as Christmas, even though it is totally not. Adults don’t really get each other presents, there are no decorations… etc. But anyway, I digress. Here is my little gift list to myself.
First I need this Menorah from Jonathan Adler for some “Park Avenue Panache.” Then I will buy some of these red monogrammed hand towels. There is not another speck of red in my whole apartment. But I don’t care. Must have. I would copy the wallpaper too, but the bathroom walls are tiled! This Spa Robe from Restoration Hardware. Perfect for those winter Saturdays when you dont leave the house. Monogrammed hotel bedding. But not the duvet. Something about that duvet irks me. I just like the sheets and I really cant wait to show you what I will be covering the whole thing up with! Its a surprise!
This CUSTOMIZED Jonathan Adler 4′ x 6′. I keep having to remind people that this stuff is MINE! Hence the monogramming…
DJ Hero. Best game since the Wii. Played by a friend’s house this weekend. Its a must have. These baby bunny book ends for my babe’s room. Leather animal book ends. Super Luxe. Super expensive at Barneys $140? You can also buy them at Cocoa Crayon. (I put them on my list, and not on the gift list for her because seriously, you think she cares about leather bunny book ends? No. But they will give me immense joy. Her list includes some seriously awesome stuff like… A fishtank!! I am designing the fish tank with the utmost of seriousness. The fish and decor must all match my apartment!) I dont know why I dig these wall sculptures from Plantation. They are only 100 bucks and they remind me of those big spikey balls Kelly Wearstler leaves everywhere and sells at Bergdorf for thousands. Couldn’t I just leave those three in a cluster on a table to get the same effect? And last but definitely MOST, this is my new idea for what I should do this summer: Rent a house in Ibiza for a month. Seriously, why spend the same dough to go to the JERSEY SHORE (especially after that first episode of that new show on MTV.. UGH) Any of these homes will do….. You can all come visit!!!
