How about a handful of "Open-Right-This-Second" gifts? They could be hostess offerings or touches of the season's spirit for your home. Why not, n'est-ce pas?
Let me suggest a few immediate gratification items:
1.) Fleur de lis linen cocktail napkins. (Let me caution you. When you click you will be taken to a site that caters to baby gear -- lots and lots of baby stuff, but go to "The Best" scroll and be patient. You will sort of really, really want these to keep on scrolling.)
2.) Eiffel Tower ornaments.
3.) More of the above, but different. Same source, One Kings Lane.
4.) Moutarde au jus de truffe.
5.) From Diptyque, the best candles in the world in my opinion, their Noël collection (or just one). The choices this year: Sapin Doré, L'Oud Ambré and L'Oliban -- all sumptuously rich and sensuous.
Next week there will be much more where these came from including stocking stuffers for the woman (and the man) who has everything. There will be, however, a twist to the story.
