Gemstone Jewelry (Price Varies)

Trust me when I say I’ve seen a lot of jewelry and very few designers catch my eye. Then came this stunning collection. In person, these milky rocks sparkle and glisten and are beautifully complimented by the yellow metal and natural materials. P.S. They has been worn by celebrities and spotted on a number of network television shows.

Refillable To-Go Cup ($9.95)

Disguise your hard-core coffee addiction while reducing waste with a bright, flower-covered cup that combines a vintage print with a bold color. One gift idea is to pair it with a pound of the recipient’s favorite coffee. If these are calling your name, buy two and use a different one each day.

Where to begin with this amazing collection from interior design expert Jonathan Adler? This collection, complete with everything from refillable mugs to pens and media cases to stationery, literally caused me to swoon.

Sandals with pouch ($17.95)

How many times have you found yourself in dire need of a pair of back up shoes? Exactly – too many to count. This adorable pair of sandals comes with a slim pouch to store the sandals so they are easy to find in a big bag and keeps the dirt off of everything else. And I can attest, they feel pretty good on the feet.
