Here are my “Scouted” picks for gift giving this holiday season. There are so many gorgeous, fun, unique things at our local shops, this doesn’t even scratch the surface. But I hope it inspires you to visit these amazing local businesses and find your perfect gift! #ShopLocal
1. Pagoda lanterns small and large at JETT THOMPSON ANTIQUES & INTERIORS would look great on a holiday table.
2. I “feel healed” by the Nada G healing eye rings and necklaces at SHANNON GREEN COLLECTION.
3. The Mawi Glitter Clutch from MARISSA COLLECTIONS is on my list.
4. I love the gift of stationery because it’s something we often don’t buy for ourselves. ARABESQUE OF NAPLES has a beautifully edited selection like this letterpress personalized stationery.
5. The 7″h “Poets and Artists” terra cotta sculptures by Claire McArdle at GARDNER COLBY GALLERY are great additions to any decor.
6. The Keshi wrapped pearl earrings from PIERRE & HARRY are the perfect go-to earrings for day or night.
7. I love the earthiness of the hand-forged bronze “Epiphany” vase by Kenneth D. Rowe at JUDITH LIEGEOIS DESIGNS & GALLERY.
8. Of course, I can never receive too many floral arrangements from 50FIFTY CREATIVE SERVICES.
9. The Tulipwood Torsion piece by Bud Latven from THOMAS RILEY STUDIO is a great focal point for an airy space.
10. It’s always a good time to capture loved ones. I love how HEATHER DONLAN PHOTOGRAPHY’S fine art portraiture uniquely does it.
11. The dramatic pen and ink drawings by DENNIS J. GORMLEY are always on my list. He will capture your beloved dog in pen and ink too.
12. I love giving gifts that are indicative of the area. PORT ROYAL JEWELERS’S turtle hatchling earrings are a Naples original.
13. Inspired by the waters on the coast of Spain, “Costa Brava”, the Norahkin Wave Pott Collection from BAY DESIGN STORE is a fabulous coffee table conversation piece.
14. You will always win my love through food. THE BAY HOUSE offers love in a box of their Gooey Brown Butter Bites.
15. Pillows instantly change a room and my hubby and I are ready for a color change so this is one of our gifts to each other from EDWARD GARY DESIGN.
