One of my favorite things about the holidays is the fact that I get to shop for gifts for the family, friends, secret santa exchanges. One of my absolute favorite people to shop for is my sister-in-law, Jenny! We both love the colors grey, yellow, pink, gold, polka dots, and fun patterns. She has the BEST eye for design and photography showcased in her home decorating and photos she posts on Instagram! I pretty much shop year round for her and like to give her a bunch of little gifts throughout the year and especially at Christmas! She’s also super generous at giving back to not only our family but to others as well.  She runs an Etsy of super cute hair accessories and small sewn goods and 50% of the proceeds goes back to Love Without Boundaries Foundation.  Jenny is one of the sweetest people I know with one of the biggest hearts out there!

Recently, I discovered this new online shop called BRIKA, which features the works of authentic makers, designers and and artisans and has the most gorgeous modern little pieces you ever did see. I thought they’d go perfectly in line with Jenny’s love with all things modern and classic.  So inspired by Jenny, I’ve created 3 Gift Guides For Her at a $50, $75 and $150 total price point from all items on BRIKA.  So depending on what budget you are working with this year, you can totally find all your gifts on BRIKA at different price points!

    I would love to get the brown thin rivet wallet (http://www.brika.com/brown-leather-thin-rivet-wallet) for my boyfriend. His old wallet is sad-looking and he has been wanting one that is more streamlined. This is perfect!
