Holiday Gift Ideas 5: Hot Honey and the Moon and Stars.

Tis the season: every day this week, I'll be posting ten holiday gift ideas - fifty total by Friday. This year, I aimed to feature items from small businesses (Etsy and otherwise), or my favorite local  shops here in NYC. Other items are things I own and love.

Day 5: Hot Honey and the Moon and Stars.

-Feather necklace, $42. Blush-pink feathers on a leather cord.

-Senegalese basket, $20. A lidded cattail basket, Seuss-like, and the color of sunshine.

-Mike's Hot Honey, $10. I tried this chili-infused honey a few weeks ago at a pizza place called Paulie Gee's. It was drizzled over mozzarella and sopressata, and later over vanilla ice cream with candied walnuts. Unforgettable. 

-Kebnekaise Pouf Chair, $310. Modeled after Sweden's highest peak, a chair that allows the satisfaction of conquering mountains daily.

-Hand-carved Mexican slingshot, $85. Mango wood slingshots made exclusively for one of my favorite neighborhood shops

-Tiger card, $4.50. Well, hello.

-Part Wolf t-shirt, $24. For full moons. 

-Handmade skateboard, $245. In high school, my friend Maya and I once bought a skateboard from a toy store thinking we could practice on it before graduating to the real thing (something like one of these handmade oak boards). I made it as far as the foot of my driveway, and haven't ridden since.

-City of Daughters Rose Hip Grenadine, $13. For a Brooklyn-ized take on a Tequila Sunrise, grenadine made from pomegranate juice and organic rose hips.
