2010 gift guides: grace’s picks

by Grace Bonney

Today I’m wrapping up my gift guides (stay tuned for 12 more guides next week and the week after!) with a roundup that’s a bit more personal: my own wish list! It’s funny — whenever my family asks about gifts for me each year, they have a hard time telling which of the things I write about I’d actually like to bring home. It’s hard to narrow down my favorites from all the beautiful things we get to write about every day, so I thought I’d share the pieces that made my own personal list this year. I’d be lucky to get any one of these things, and I thought there might be a few items here that would make great additions to your own lists. xo, grace
