8 Merry & Bright Home & Office Gifts

(Graphic: Helen Jane Hearn/TueNight)

I had a trifecta of goals as I searched for items to include here: First, to bring you my usual explosion of patterns and brights (I am nothing if not consistent; this is my MO every year Tue Night asks me to compose a gift guide). Second, to only include items that are everyday useful because even the most workaday things in your life should be bold and fun. And finally, to feature only items that’ll run you $75 or less. Done, done and done.

1. Pendleton Bowl

Pendelton is a fantastic resource for good prints and not just on their famed blankets. This bowl, in their Suwanee Stripe pattern, comes in a set of four and brings just that much more excitement to your morning oatmeal.

I stockpile Christian Lacroix notebooks to give as gifts (the ones I can bear to tear myself away from, that is) — they’re so handy, and the prints are unbeatable.
