Andy Warhol Butterflies iPhone Case, $40
It’s an artsy-girly iPhone case that will look pretty getting reflected in the mirror of her Instagram self-portraits. (Trust me, I am not making fun of anyone with that example.)
Bourbon Ginger Pecan Pie, $35
After Valentines Day soup dumplings, head home for tea and a bourbon ginger pecan pie, baked by Brooklyn cuties Keavy Blueher and Allison Kave, collectively known as Butter & Scotch. You should skip the plates and eat it with two forks while snugged up on the couch. (Keavy and Allsion, I can’t wait until your brick-and-mortar location opens this spring!)
A Cat’s Life by Gemma Correll, $14
Quirky cartoonist Gemma Correll is beloved for her dry, off-beat humor. She understands why your hipster girlfriend ends up in empty rooms at parties, petting cats like “a drunken Snow White“. This book is delightful.
Fjallraven Warm Yellow Kanken Classic Backpack, $88
She can pack for a fun weekend getaway in this adorable, campy-and-classic backpack. Note: also include plans for a weekend getaway to somewhere woodsy.
Roald Dahl print from Lisa Congdon, $18
“If you have good thoughts they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely.” – Roald Dahl
Give her this print, hand lettered by my friend and constant inspiration Lisa Congdon, as a reminder that you love her for her inner beauty, too.
Mineral Magnet Set, $36
A rad set of mineral magnets to jazz up the crummy fridge in her fourth floor walk-up apartment. Bonus points if you include a card that says, “you rock!”
I will be here all week, you guys.
Oval Stud Earrings from we see stars, $18
Just the thing for adding a tiny bit of sparkle without a lot of fuss. Both Patrice and I wear earrings from this company; hers are teeny lighting bolts, and mine are these very ovals. I got them at Old Hollywood in the Lower East Side in Manhattan (there’s also a location in Williamsburg, Brooklyn), and you can order from the website (link above) or check out the we see stars website for other styles.
Mini Wooden Speaker, $32
A pretty little wooden speaker that attaches to her iPhone easily, for gettin’ it on to the indie-artist heavy sexy playlist for Valentines Day.
p.s. More gifts for your hipster girlfriend.
