TICKLE MY FANCY

Gifts are always a joy but never expected. That being said, I do like presents – I am a woman after all! But it’s difficult to buy for someone you don’t know very well. This page is here to assist gents who choose to bring me a gift. There is no particular order here…just random musings on things I like.

 

 

 

 

I LOVE things for my home and garden! Gift cards to Bed, Bath, and Beyond,  Campania International, Frontgate, Williams-Sonoma, Pottery Barn, World Market, Crate and Barrel are some of my favorites! I LOVE splurging on toys and fun stuff for my dog! Pet Supermarket, Petco

 

I love to eat right so Whole Foods, Epicure and Fresh Market are a no brainer to make me smile on the inside and the outside! I love, love, love books. Coffee table photography books from Rizzoli’s, or Taschen, erotic art and literature, biographies, histories, quirky books of facts, travel books, poetry books, books, cookbooks… oh books. I just love books.

 

I am forever running out of Nespresso pods for my favorite kitchen machine and I never tire of tea! I enjoy blends from Teavana (especially mango infused or chai blends) I also love French Earl Grey, gunpowder greens, Lapsang souchong and green matcha…anything along those lines – support my caffeine habit.

 

Tropical flowers or gerbera daisies, calla lilies, pink roses – bright is best, and orchids are gorgeous too – either potted or cut, I’m not fussy that way. I love beautiful flowers. I am also a lover of Ikebana!

 

Beautiful lingerie sets from La Perla , Agent Provocateur and KiKi De Montparnasse are favorites. Bra 34DD-36D depending on style, bottoms small. I like Wolford for their stockings and Cosabella for their cami sets….Victoria Secrets is always fun too!

 

I love shoes and really love to model them for you! My shoe size is 8 in the US or 38 European. I have beautiful feet so a beautiful shoe just makes them even sexier! Some of my favorite designers are Giuseppe Zanotti,  Jimmy Choo, YSL, Manolo Blahnik,Christian Louboutin, Gucci, Fendi and Brain Atwood. I can always find shoes at Neimen Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue or Nordstroms.….bring it on! Shoes are ALWAYS a joy!

 

I travel a lot so I enjoy gift certificates from Brookstone, Apple,  and Best Buy for my gadget needs. iTunes gift cards are always an excellent choice!

    

A few of my favorite clothes stores are Intermix, Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus and Nordstrom. My dress size is a 4, pant 27

 

What woman doesn't love jewelry? I love all kinds and any color of gold and diamonds and gems! David Yurman jewelry is always a hit and I love his silver too..but I enjoy other designers as well...surprise me!

  

I am a fitness fanatic so I LOVE Lululemon Athletica and Sports Authority

 

I LOVE Amazon! I am an Amazon.com frequent shopper. This is all-around gift card that always makes me smile! 

 

Candles are a delight and high quality candles set the mood every time! Some of my favorite brands are Nest -Amber is my favorite, Creed -Riviera is my favorite and Dyptique any... and  Comme De Garcon Avignon. For added olfactory pleasure I am a huge fan of diffusing high quality essential oils.  And since we are on lovely smells... my favorite perfume is Jasmal by Creed - but with Creed I like many fragrances.....

 

For the bath I am a huge fan of Lush products. I was at their very first store in London and packed an entire suitcase with their goods since you could not get them in the US at the time!

 

Yes! I have a sweet tooth! I LOVE chocolate from Vosges Haut-Chocolat , Godiva or any really good dark chocolate bar is fun to satisfy my oral fixation.

 

Oh spa day! I love to be pampered. Some of my favorite places at home are Canyon Ranch, Mandarin Oriental, The Standard and Aqualina Spa. But I LOVE to try new spas and I travel a lot so if you get me a nice spa certificate in your city…chances are I will be back. ;-)

 

XOXO
