Please Note:

From 2011-2016, we had an inspiration blog featuring nurseries, baby showers, parties, and portraits that were submitted to us by photographers, designers, and parents. We no longer accept submissions or post new blog content, but we have left the archive here for those who have saved this content, or for new readers looking for inspiration.

A Peek inside the Holiday Guide: Home & Entertaining

Here's another peek inside the 2011 Holiday Gifts and Services Guide, this time focusing on goodies for your home and entertaining.

Absorbent Tile Coasters, $20 per set of 4 coasters, by My Little Chickadee Creations
Don't you love these? My Little Chickadee Creations transforms travertine tile into functional coasters, trivets, magnets and Christmas ornaments; all of which can be personalized. (The personalization deadline for holiday delivery has already passed, but the designs are great even without customization!)

These handmade, quilted ornaments are one-of-kind and come in tons of colors and textures. This is a great gift for just about anyone over the holidays, but you might also want to treat your own tree to this one.

Spiral Address Stamp by Purple Lemon Designs
Another great gift that just about anyone could use! It's fun and quirky, but functional at the same time.
