Gift Guide 2013 (DeSmitten Picks)

Hello again Undeclared Panache readers! My name is Christina, I usually blog over at DeSmitten, but I am super excited to be here today to share my Holiday Gift Guide for 2013!  I put together the best of the best from my top gift guides of the season (and added a few extras) to bring you a selection of well designed and inspirational items for the home, mind and body. Happy shopping and happy holidays! 


{1} Chloé: Attitudes looks back at the sixty year history of the first fashion house to exclusively sell ready-to-wear. A must have book in any fashion library.
{2} From Kenya Hera, the art director of Muji, White is a book about minimalistic design.
{3} Always on a mission for non-traditional white shirts, this Assembly New York Reverse Demi Collar Shirt is perfect!
{4} For daily filtered water, and to keep hydrated all winter long, I love this minimalistic Glass Carafe which comes with new filters, delivered by mail, every 60 days.
{5} With frequent house guests and cats that love to snuggle, we can never have enough cozy blankets in our apartment and this wool Camp Blanket from Need Supply is at the top of my list of linens to get this year.
{6} Add a little bling to any bar with this Dauville Handmade Gold Glazed Bottle Coaster from Canvas Home. I also love it as a catch-all dish to set on the nightstand for earrings and other jewels to linger in until morning.
{7} llesteva Horn Leonard Sunglasses are a great way to brighten things up for winter.
{8} When not opening bottles, the Parallax Bottle Opener doubles as a beautiful object of interest.
{9} A set of three Tom Dixon Candles in brass, nickel and copper canisters add style to any room while their individual scents enhance the atmosphere.
{10} Simple earrings are always a hit with friends, and the Long Dash Earrings from A Détacher are no exception.

{11} Organic shaped Soap Rocks turn any tub into the hall of gems of the Natural History Museum.
