I’m super excited to have teamed up with  Lamps Plus to create an awesome holiday gift guide.  I first started learning about all the fab home decor items they offer this summer, when I was designing the safe house for trafficked women for Worthwhile Wear.  I had a what the what moment when I saw it was so much more than lamps!  Lamps Plus donated thousands of dollars in lighting for the safe house and I was beyond grateful!  So, when they asked if I wanted to buddy up and give you guys some gift giving ideas- it was a no brainer!

So without further ado, I give you, my holiday gift guide…


1. Libby Seeded Glass Edison Bulb Accent Lamp / 2. Kathy Ireland Inspire 18″ Square Turquoise Blue Pillow / 3. Gold Crackle 6 1/2″ High Indoor Ceramic Pot / 4. Gold Leaf Shaped Decorative Tray  / 5. Woolrich Hadley Moose Accent Pillow

Here’s the down low on my choices…

1- I am majorly crushing on this accent lamp.  I love how it’s simple, but not overly industrial.  I am all about industrial elements , but if I’m giving this as a gift, I like that it can work with almost any decor style.

2- I love deep rich colors in the winter, but then come spring, I crave light and bright.  I liked that this Kathy Ireland pillow works for both – we’ve got the deep green and turquoise and yellow.  Win-Win!

3- Gold square planter.  Succulent.  Need I say more?

4- You can’t go wrong with a unique tray like this gold feather.  Honestly, skip the handmade teacher gift this year and get them something with tons of style like this! (Your kid might even get a guaranteed A+!)

5- And just because I’m not ready to let go of the animal silhouette trend, I think this Morris the Moose pillow is perfect for the remainder of the winter.

The Best Part:  Lamps Plus is giving away each of my holiday gift selections to East Coast Creative Readers- and your friends!

 All you need to do is leave a comment on this photo on the Lamps Plus Facebook  page and let them know which item you’d like to win!  Tag a friend so that you both can win the item!  You can tag more than one friend with more than one item- that just increases your odds.  They’re giving away all 5 items I’ve picked out, so give it a try!  

Good Luck! I can’t wait to see which items are your favs!

Also, a few other talented bloggers and I, created a Pinterest board, where you can find all of our gift guide ideas in one place.  Check it out!
