Hi Secret Santy πŸŽ„

Sorry if you like to plan ahead, I've been on vacation and am just getting around to this list... but I am really psyched and I love getting mail and the fact that you're on list means I already love you and think you can do no wrong (unless you are @kenm in which case πŸ™…πŸΌπŸ™…πŸΌπŸ™…πŸΌπŸ™…πŸΌπŸ™…πŸΌ). If not, here are some things I love:
  1. β€’
    Hand-written or hand-drawn or hand-made notes, gifts, illustrations, whatever!
    My most prized possession is a mug my cousin made at a paint-your-own-pottery place in 1994 so it's like that!
  2. β€’
    Dark chocolate
  3. β€’
    Nice pens & sketchbooks
    Pilot precise v5 pens are my jam
  4. β€’
    Interior design mags
    World of Interiors is my very favorite but I truly love and love hoarding them all. Really anything visually inspiring is always at the top of my list
  5. β€’
    Glossy high-brow "journals" and "quarterlies" but also US Weekly, People, In Touch, etc.
    I love The Paris Review, Gentlewoman, Apartamento but also I like reading about which d-list star shopped at Whole Foods this week
  6. β€’
    Peanut M&M's/Almond M&M's
  7. β€’
    Everything but oatmeal raisin. Oatmeal chocolate chip, tho, is a fave. How can one be so bad and one be so good???
  8. β€’
    Fiction, short stories, or cookbooks are my faves
  9. β€’
    I LOVE Christmas so please feel free to send me all the Christmas themed things or decorations or whatever you encounter, I love it all and I promise to keep it up until Valentine's Day.
  10. β€’
    I cook most of my meals from scratch and I love it, anything cooking related is πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»
  11. β€’
    Anything Italy-related
    I used to live there, I speak Italian, I wrote my thesis on Italian art history, I love Italian food and coffee and wine and gelato.
  12. β€’
    Anything Art/Art History-related
  13. β€’

  15. β€’
    Lipsticks/lip gloss/lip balm/candles/typical girl stuff
  16. β€’
    Anything with pretty packaging, tbh
    Part of what I do for work is design packaging so I'm all about this
  17. β€’
    Anything with simple, timeless, clever design
    Is this too broad? Ann Mashburn/Muji/MoMA shop are my faves
  18. β€’
    Anything for my boo, Fozzie Bear ❀️
    He's 40 lbs and usually a size medium and he loves bones and tennis balls and things that squeak.
