The child in me never outgrew a love of small things. My tastes however, did mature. Were Santa still inclined to fill a stocking for me, here’s what I’d wish for.
Above: Rock on top, bottle opener on the bottom. Made from a zinc alloy in a matte finished, the No.30 Ganbei Bottle Opener resembles a perfectly polished beach stone. But underneath features a unique 360-degree design that opens bottles from any angle. Cheers to that! Available at Ode to Things; $65.
Above: A winning combination of form and function, Schoolhouse’s Oversized Safety Matches are perfect for all your holiday illuminations; $16.
Above: During a recent stay at Numeroventi (see: Numeroventi in Florence: A Modern Guest House in a 16th-Century Palazzo), I fell in love with Frama’s Otto Cup in White. Small, yet substantial, it was the perfect vessel for my afternoon espresso. A bit of a stocking splurge, but worth it; €60 for set of two.
