Gifted Program: Fire Starter

What do we think you should gift this season? Something Of a Kind—I mean, OBVIOUSLY. If you’re looking to double-down on the special, we’ve conjured up some stellar present pairings—our “Gifted Program,” if you will—that we’ll be serving up over the next couple weeks. (And ok, fine, if this doesn’t satiate you, we have a slew of ideas up in our Pinterest, too.) —erica 

The pairing: Matt Singer’s so-cool leather lighter covers ($40) + Catbird’s smells-like-campfire candle ($12). You know that guy you’re kind of seeing but not in serious way? Done and done—card that reads “light my fire” or some shiz is optional.

Play Your (V-Day) Cards Right, Take 5

Holidays offer the opportunity to offer subtle suggestions in the form of present—in this case, “You’re too old for a velco wallet,” or, “That bi-fold you got for college graduation is a mess.” Here’s how to gift some guidance with love. —erica

The gift: The indigo blue puppy Maxx & Unicorn made for Of a Kind is constructed from one piece of leather—cool, right?—and is both approachable and special…tough traits to come by in these sorts of things.

The card: Potential inside text for this Quill and Fox card: “So is this wallet. Wanna be my boo?”

Play Your (V-Day) Cards Right, Take 4

You know when you’ve been dating someone for that weird amount of time when you feel like you have to celebrate Valentine’s Day but have no idea how the F to commemorate the occasion without feeling straight-up lame? Well, this little pairing is your answer. —erica

The gift: The lighter covers that Matt Singer made for us make such a cute couple! JUST LIKE YOU GUYS.

The card: This little Kate’s Paperie number hits just the right note (heh): It’s quippy and says next to nothing.

Don’t smoke. But do carry a lighter anyway, if only so you can have Matt Singer's cheetah-print leather holster. —erica

Oh, You Need a V-Day Gift, Do You?

We think our editions would make splendid Valentine’s Day gifts for all sorts of people. In fact, just to give you as sense of their versatility, we did a little shopping for a few of our favorite personalities, including a future princess and a part-Veela witch. nathalie gorman

 

Fade Out Necklace by Cursive Design

To: Jane Eyre

Love: Mr. Rochester

We think Mr. R. would be well advised to purchase this necklace for his ladylove. The subtle elegance of the dyed lace combined with the delicate nature of the chain would suit Jane to a T.

Universal Striped Leather Vest by Veda

To: Miss Catherine Middleton

Love: Prince William

After you give a woman an engagement ring the whole world is jealous of, coming up with a suitable V-Day gift is a challenge. This striped leather is so distinctive that it would attract almost as much attention as her rock—and would look adorable paired with her fave jeans-and-boots combo. Bonus points: Since there are only five in the whole wide world, it’s nearly as exclusive.

Crystal Ship Necklace by Lizzie Fortunato Jewels

To: Fleur Delacour

Love: Bill Weasley

Fleur Delacour may have been the snootiest of the Triwizard Champions, but we love her and her style—and so does her wizard husband Bill Weasley. This necklace would look amazing with her phoenix-embellished wedding gown if she ever decided to bust it out again, and, furthermore, it’s obvious even to us Muggles that this piece is magic.

Pouch Belt by Manimal

To: Natalie Portman

Love: Benjamin Millepied

Not only is this belt super cute, but it’s also adjustable—making it the ideal present for the most adorable pregnant woman in the world. Yes, it’s leather, and she’s a vegan—but so is the woman who made it.

These Henrik Vibskov socks look like Christmas. But if you wore them at any other time of year, you wouldn’t have to worry about someone spying candy canes on your ankles. —erica

A Little Of a Kind Gift-Giving…

We think Of a Kind editions would make stellar presents for, well, lots of people—big surprise, we know—but if we had to pick one celeb (real or fictitious) to gift each available piece to, these would be the recipients. —nathalie gorman

Collina Strada Amica Pouch / Serena Van Der Woodsen

This little case would be a great stocking stuffer for S. It’s the perfect combination of classic prep and indie queen. XOXO, Santa Claus.

Mandy Coon Ernie Bunny Bag / Suri Cruise

Sure this bag is meant for grown-ups, but so are heels—and that’s never stopped Suri. Thankfully for Little Ms. Cruise, her bodyguards would prevent envious adults from trying to snatch it from her.

Dusen Dusen Trails Rucksack / Juno MacGuff

This school-appropriate backpack is whimsical without being feminine. You might even say that, like Paulie Bleeker, it would be “the cheese to her macaroni.”

Lizzie Fortunato Jewels Crystal Ship Necklace / Emma Watson

This necklace was basically made to be worn by Emma with a mini dress, a big pair of heels, and that studded Burberry trench of hers. By the by, doesn’t she kind of look like Lizzie and Kathryn?

Symmetry Goods Parker Scarf / Jess Mariano

Bad-boy novelist Jess would pair this scarf with his trademark leather jacket and wear it to the coffeehouse to write and woo Rory Gilmore.
