Be Mine. URG8. Hugs & Kisses. U Rock. Tweet Me. Luv Ya.

There's nothing better than a box of conversation hearts from a secret admirer (preferably the chalky kind) - or a sweet token of love wrapped with a bow from your special someone. Ahhhh, swoon. 

If you want to break away from the traditional candy or flowers, here are some great gift ideas that would make anyone weak in the knees...

I have a penchant for monogrammed pendants and when I discovered these custom morse code necklaces, I was giddy an immediately putting one in my virtual shipping cart!

Handmade in the Portland studios of COATT and available in various colors, lengths and materials (personally I LOVE the silk option), it is truly a labor of love using gold or silver dots and dashes on silk cord, spelling names and phrases in morse code.

steph loves ben.

A gem of an Etsy shop featuring the sweetest handmade decorations and pretty things. My heart skipped a beat when I saw this adorable pom bouquet. Cuter than cute and a zillion colors to choose from...(okay, maybe just 15 but it looks crazy colorful in the best way possible!)


I would love to wrap my office in this felted garland...




And this charming custom felt cake topper is the icing on the cake of pretty, handmade things!

Meet The Cozy Project.

Who can resist a name like that?!? I love to be cozy and I love a project. And I LOVE this adorable Etsy shop filled to the brim with handmade cozies from Portland.

I have a mild obsession and am known to collect cozies from places I have been, bands I have seen, weddings I have celebrated and the "just too darn cute to pass up" ones I find. The Cozy Project definitely falls under the "just too darn cute to pass up"category.

I can never have too many cozies to keep my coffee warm or my pint glass from sweating...so send some unique and chic ones to GetMarried and I will feature them!

Meet hiip San Francisco.

There's nothing I love more than discovering passionate, creative and just down right good people. And this is exactly what I found when I met Nicole, owner/founder of hiip San Francisco, in the pop-up shop at The Lab Event last weekend in Sonoma. Instant cool...and wait 'til you see her bags and hear the hiip story.


hiip launched with a mission to spread change in San Francisco. Inspired by the TOMS business model of one-for-one, for every hiip bag that's purchased, a hiip kit in donated to a homeless person in need. The hiip kit is filled with everyday essentials. hiip encourages those who are in San Francisco area to join her on hiip handouts. I love her desire to give back while helping build the community through purposeful interactions.


 hiip styles feature names from the San Francisco Bay area...and there is truly something for everyone. So hard to decide!

So wear some charity and you will not only look great but you feel great. Just think...by buying a cute new handbag, you can help participate in changing the situation for a community.

“People connect and respond to handmade things in a different, deeper way.I seek out pieces with a soul and history, and I love layering on my own point of view.”- T. Schafhauser

Meet Sheer Addiction.

It is bold. It is feminine. It is sophisticated. It is addictive. It is stunning. 

I first discovered Sheer Addiction at the Junk Bonanza and now I find myself quite frequently browsing their online shop to hold me over until the next Junk Bonanza. It's definitely a happy place for me!

As many of you know, I have a minor obsession with pillows...I always have too many on the furniture, beds...even for my pets! AND they are one of my favorite gifts to give...

So when I saw these sassy handmade pillows by Alexandra Ferguson, I instantly thought of the perfect gift for my newly married friend. heartPink


You can state your opinion - and save the earth. These must-have home accessories are constructed exclusively of recycled materials. Quality made in the USA - beginning to end. Here are a few of my favorites but check the complete collection here:




Enough said. Alexandra Ferguson pillow talk rocks.

I heartPink opening my email and discovering a treasure! 

I was instantly in love with the LilahV Modern Line found on Etsy. This collection of handmade jewelry features mid-century beads made by a European designer from the 1940's through the early 1960's. The designer had disappeared and the entire collection was lost for decades. Just recently the beads were found buried in a factory! (Crazy, cool story...the Jimmy Hoffa of beads?!?)

All of these original beads were painted on the on the sides with solid platinum followed by 22k gold for a gorgeous effect. The color pallet is ridiculously perfect with every combination.




An added bonus (and a beautiful one) is that 20% from all LilahV sales goes to The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

LilahV. Vintage materials, modern design at its best!

hometown puzzle2

One of my favorite gifts this holiday was from my sister who knows how much (a) I LOVE maps and (b) I LOVE a good puzzle. 

These Personalized Hometown Puzzles from L.L. Bean feature an extract from the Delorme topographical map base centered on YOUR home! How cool. And the center piece is your home address - even shaped like a house. Adorable (and a great place to start!)

hometown puzzle

Mine is actually in progress and I'm loving the challenge...not sure which is more difficult - all of the open country or city streets?!?! I will be obsessed until it is done...tonight!

I would definitely add this to my gift guide for all occasions! SO fun for a housewarming or wedding gift.

Fashion Color of the Year-04104

Move over Tango Tangerine meet Emerald. The Pantone Fashion Color for 2013!

With an Irish name like Dempsey, I can't help but feel connected to this FANTASTIC color choice. My mind instantly goes to words like...fresh. lush. regal. bold.

Emerald is so versatile. You can easily go rustic, glamorous or preppy chic depending how you round out your color palette. I especially heartPink it with metallics and pastels. Coupled with mint or light pink...swoon.

Here is some emerald eye candy I rounded up as I have been daydreaming about the Color of the Year...
