In our Holiday Issue, we heard from Susie Allison on dealing with the “holiday hangover.” As Susie explained, a holiday hangover isn’t technically related to champagne or too many cookies – but the feeling of disappointment that the most wonderful time of the year is only once a year. As we continued reading, we felt ourselves relate more and more to her sentiments. Shouldn’t we bring the spirit to the other 11 months?
That’s how we found ourselves searching through the lively inventory of Olive & Cocoa, a unique store built around gift giving. Whether it’s giving “just because” gifts all year round, or buying things that bring a festive spirit to our own homes – there’s something for everyone.
Since we aren’t quite ready to say goodbye to our holiday decor, we’ve opted to bring in a few accents that are still seasonally appropriate. This Succulent Wreath and Saffron Serpentine Vase will add a festive feeling without overtly admitting that you can’t say goodbye to the holiday spirit. In the kitchen, the Magnolia Flower Bowl and Salt & Pepper Shakers dress things up – and would make wonderful hostess gifts for the first dinner parties of 2015. Finally, we believe you should drink champagne year round – so these gold Champagne Flutes are a must have on our own bar carts AND will make a great Valentine’s gift for your bestie.
Needless to say, Olive & Cocoa is definitely a place you should abide by the “one for them, one for you” rule. Happy shopping!
