Anthropologie gift ideas

A couple of weeks ago I had a few hours to kill in White Plains, and I treated myself to a trip to Anthropologie.

I’m sure you know about Anthropologie, but if you don’t, you are missing out. They are selling clothing, jewelry, and all kinds of home decor.

I’m not a mall person, but I drove to the Westchester mall just for this one store.

Looking at all of their beautiful things is my kind of heaven — their eclectic mix of pretty and vintage-inspired home decor is so lovely, it instantly makes me happy and inspires me.

I took so many pictures during my visit, I made the store manager jumpy. I figured I’d share them with you like I have before in this post.

And since we are all wondering what to get our family and friends for Christmas or Hanukkah, I’ll share with you my favorite picks of Anthropologie items that would make impressive and unique gifts.

Anthropologie gift ideas, clothingI would love to be a stylist for Anthropologie, or the person who sources their vintage and quirky items for their store displays. They are always innovative, beautiful, and surprising.

How cool is this “chandelier” idea?

Anthropologie gift ideasI usually head straight to their home decor section. They have so many items I love that I usually end up not buying much because I just can’t make up my mind — and because they are pretty pricey.

Again, there are so many pretty choices. It’s just always so hard for me to justify $14+ for one plate when I know where to score pretty plates for $1.

Anthropologie always carries a beautiful selection of coffee table, home decor, and cooking books. This book about “Design Bloggers at Home” obviously caught my eye! Hello, can I be in the second edition?

My mom is the queen of marshmallows, and I bought a couple of these for her. They’ll be flying to Germany.

Don and I love books and these monogram books caught my attention right away. What a cool way to upcycle books! Someone has the job to source old books for these letters, how cool.

These used to be my initials.
