Gift: Frida Kahlo Thorns Cream Blanket
Price: $65

I got this blanket from the Shop last week and I couldn’t be more obsessed. As someone who has all the Frida things I thought I could ever want, I was surprised to see something I’d never seen before. It’s perfect as an accent to any couch or bed and comes in several designs.

Gift: The Art of the Scarf
Price: $14.99

I love scarfs. They can jazz up any outfit by twisting, turning and knotting a scarf to your liking. The Art of the Scarf can teach you or your favorite person the additional powers of a scarf, making your ordinary outfit extraordinary. I plan on buying this book for my aunt and pairing it with a fun art-themed scarf—also available at the Shop.
