2019 Holiday Gift Guide

Still searching for the perfect gift for a movie/cocktail-lover? Or maybe you just want to treat yourself? Check out my picks below, and get shopping.*  Cheers!

1) Diamond Drinking Glasses

Perfect for the next time you watch Uncut Gems, your favorite jewel heist movie, or Gentlemen Prefer Blondes.  Marilyn said it best: “Diamonds are a girl’s best friend.”

2) Traveling Cocktail Case

This goes with me on every road trip because nothing beats a well-crafted cocktail after a long day in the car. I also break it out any time I watch Two For the Road!

3. Waiting for Tom Hanks

This delightful book by Kerry Winfrey is the perfect gift for fans of romantic comedies. If you can quote every line from You’ve Got Mail and have a thing for houseboats, you will love this novel too!

4. Echo in the Canyon Soundtrack

Echo in the Canyon was my top documentary of the year, and the soundtrack does not disappoint! Songs of the 1960s Laurel Canyon music scene sung by an amazing roster of current artists- you need this for your next party.
