Each summer I attend the NY NOW Show – The Market for Lifestyle, Home + Gift – at the Javits Center in New York City. It’s fun to walk up and down the aisles filled with home decor, jewelry, housewares, artisan crafts, paper goods, and a whole lot more. Since it’s the gift giving season, I thought I would share some of my favorite things from the show. I’ve included items only where I know you can purchase them online.
If you haven’t finished your holiday shopping, perhaps you’ll find an idea for the perfect gift for a loved one or maybe a treat for yourself. Plus read down all the way, as I’m giving away some of my favorite things during JudiBoomergirl’s December giveaways!
For Those Who Love Jewelry
♥ You can find this Portland designer’s handmade glass enamel jewelry at www.taliasjewelry.com.
♥ If you want to sparkle, check out handmade gems at AnneVaughanDesigns.com
♥ These pieces are on the pricey side but handcrafted in Himalaya. Check them out on Etsy.
♥ Since “life is a process of becoming,” these delicate jewels are adorned with positive words. Find them at www.becomingjewelry.com.
For Some Zen Time
♥ I love snow globes, so I totally love these Zen Snow Globes. Namaste! Go to Cool Snow Globes to buy one.
♥ When I heard Taschen was publishing On Yoga: The Architecture of Peace with photographs by Michael O’Neill, I asked if I could get a preview copy. I told them I was a yoga teacher in training. It is a beautiful gift for the yogini or yogi in your life. I display it on the coffee table near my in-home yoga studio.
For Those Who Are Forgetful
♥ Do you forget where you placed your keys. Now you can easily find them with the bluetooth tracker from chipolo.net.
For Your Home
♥ I wanted to cuddle up in this hot pink tibetan lamb rug. So I did. You can’t buy it online, however I bet if you wanted to purchase one you could contact chesterfieldleather.com and maybe they would sell one to you. A perfect gift for your life after 50.
♥ While I don’t have any pets, many of my friends and family have cats. If you’re a cat-lover, you’ll want to visit www.kittyjones.com for handmade goods for cat-friendly homes.
For A Beautiful Body
For Carrying Your Stuff
♥ I liked these totes because they have zipped closures and can be monogrammed at www.graphicimage.com.
♥ The colorful leather on these handbags and wallets caught my eye as soon as I turned down the aisle at the show. Check them out at www.mywalit.com.
For Wrapping Yourself Up During The Day Or Night
♥ There’s a story to these scarves. You can read about the sari and purchase one at theredsari.com.
♥ Oprah picks these pjs and so do I. They are so soft and warm. You can purchase a pair at pjharlow.com
♥ Sleeping on silk pillows is supposed to ease the wrinkles post 50. I plan to try it. How about you? Check out the pillows at Branche Beauty Sleep.
