Color it Pink and Green

Hello-Hello, happy beginning of a new week!

The gray and gloomy skies here in The Great Midwest prompted us to look for something a little brighter. It seems like a good time to share a few more pink and green gift ideas, some specific to the holidaze, but many ideal any time of the year.  We start with what has to be the first one of these we’ve seen: behold the 2GB Personalized Hard Drive.

Ida Claire

It is from those fab folks at Ida Claire (is there anything we *don’t* want at this shop?) and is wallet-friendly at $24.50. available in other colors and styles as well.

At Kate Spade we found the Camelia Avenue Posey Vase in both pink and green ($30).

Also at Kate Spade, the iPhone 4 Cover in pink ($35) and the Hard Shell iPhone 4 Cover in green ($40).

From Fortunoff’s brand spanking new jewelry site, we show the Pink Butterfly Pendant pendant ($30) or the Pink Heart Bracelet ($50).

If looking for something to perk up the decor, perhaps the Pink Lady Apple ($375) will work; the Bunny on Cabbage Leaf Chip and Dip set ($94) is memorable as well. Both items are from Scully & Scully.

When it’s time to add some pink and green to the tree, Gump’s can help: the Raspberry Cupcake Ornament ($15) and Snail Ornament ($35) add a vivid touch.

Kimono Sachet Trios make nice stocking stuffers ($38), while the Peacock Pajamas ($98.99 on sale) are destined for lots of wear, these items are also from Gump’s.

At Cambria Cove the Square Tiffin Box Set is available in a number of colors (not-exactly-but-almost-pink-and-green-kinda’-sorta’), making a nice alternative to a lunch bag ($30.99 on sale).

For your MOTH (Man of the House) or anyone else meriting a serious GTH tie, Lilly Pulitzer has the Men’s Silk Four-in-Hand in a variety of hues, including the two shown below.

The Glass Ornaments ($48) from Lilly definitely qualify as merry and bright.

Jewelry can be a good gift, and Lilly’s Behind the Hedge Cuff ($68) makes a bold style statement.

Another jewelry possibility (although a bit pricier) is the Tiffany Christmas Tree Charm Pendant in platinum with diamonds and pink sapphires ($2050), or the Sterling and Pink Picture Frame ($425).

Other options at Tiffany include the Purse Pen ($125), a classic in pink lacquer, or the Dragonfly Charm ($975) in 18k white gold.

As one might suspect, we have an avalanche of excellent selection of pink and green goodies at The Princess, including the Cabanarama Lunch Bag ($13) from Scout and eco-friendly Market Totes ($9.50), these are only a few of the colors offered.

Crate and Barrel’s Set of 12 Multi-Ornaments is mostly pink ($31.96 on sale) and it’s the perfect time of year for the Magenta Thermal Jug ($19.95 on sale), also available in other colors.

The Trendy Tree has a variety of pink and green goodies, below we show the Polka Dot Balls in styrofoam ($7.99 for the set of two) and the Cupcake Ornament Set ($11.25 for the set of two).

There is no shortage of ideas at Brooks Brothers, including the Seersucker Bucket Hat ($17.40 on sale) or the Silk Cashmere Cardigan ($118).

Angela Moore still has a nice selection of ornaments, not to mention oodles of other things in this color combination.

The selection of artisan-made treasures at Uno Alla Volta remains substantial, including one item we love, the Pink Flying Pig Paperweight ($58) in blown glass. The Christmas Tree Paperweight makes a timely accent.

The Fused Glass Earrings ($48) at Uno Alla Volta come in both Green and a deep Pink .

The Green Silk Chrysanthemum Scarf ($89) is hand-painted, as is the Pink Cosmos Scarf, both are also from Uno Alla Volta.

Burke Decor’s Set of Champagne Glasses ($24) and the Tea Light Holders are offered in many more colorways than those seen here.

In the blog about her new endeavor, Monograms off Madison, Alyssa Tierney shares lots of goodies; most recently she chats about something entirely new to us seen below left, “Bloemboxes,” such a clever idea! When scanning a recent Coastal Living we also read about these boiled wool Fish Stocking Ornaments ($17.50) at Seaside Inspired.

Another item at a fiscally-friendly price point, the Posh and Preppy Tissue Case ($6) from Sew Gracious makes a darling, one-of-a-kind gift, and the Wool Felt Ornament ($16) from etsy seller Posie and Me does the same.

Not many put pink and green together as beautifully, or as successfully as Fifi Flowers, the Hot Pink Shoes acrylic painting ($100) is sure to brighten any setting and the Tied Up in Red Ribbon cards ($14 for a set of eight) make a splendid gift.

We have had a Fifi original for some time now, and love it even more than when we acquired it.

This is beginning to seem like an awful lot of pink and green, our tired, beady little eyes are beginning to cross. That must be our cue to say “Thank you for popping in, and g’bye until next time!”
