On Holiday Time

Pin It

I may live for a sunny summer day, but there is nothing quite like the holidays. It means all of my favorite things converging at once – quality time with family, good food, friends, parties, and lots and lots of hot chocolate. It makes the start of the cold season in New York feel cozy and bright. And it all leads to a countdown to something new.

Now, I get that the holidays also come with some anxiety, especially when it comes to gift-giving. Checking off all the important people on your list never feels quite as fulfilling as it should be, especially if you’re elbowing your way through crowds or getting lost in Pinterest pages for too long. Finding the perfect gift becomes an even more elusive concept with so much to choose from. So when I find something that I think falls in that category I’m going to try and share it with you.


And I think my friends over at Kate Spade have gotten pretty darn close with their Monogram Metro Watch. They passed this little gem to me and I’m in love with the personal touches – the initial at 5 pm, the mother-of-pearl dial and glitz indexes all make this watch a must on your “to give or to get” list. I also prefer a slightly oversized watch face, and this one is the perfect mix of masculine and feminine. Plus, with a monogram, your closest of kin can be sure they aren’t the victim of a re-gift.


I can’t wait to check a name off my list by giving someone this special timepiece. Meanwhile, I’ll be using mine to countdown the hours to Christmas. I’ve been good this year Santa, I swear…

Thank you Kate Spade New York for sponsoring this post.
