Hide × Stitch is a New York-based workshop producing leather accessories. Each item is constructed entirely by hand from start to finish without any mechanical aid. Congrats to Cheryl Yau, the force behind hide x Stitch!
(Interesting fact: The site runs on the brand new Squarespace commerce platform!)
How incredibly fabulous is this astronaut bedding by SNURK? Made me smile, ear to ear.
This Nerd Valentine Tumblr is full of, you guessed it, nerdy gift ideas.
Simply wonderful: Daily Dishonesty project by NYC based designer Lauren Hom. You can buy them as prints. I know some folks who would make perfect recipients for the Bacon is a Food Group print.

The FPO Engagement Ring is definitely the most amazing submission I have ever received! Do you know anyone that is about to propose to a lady that knows what she wants when it comes to jewelry? Use the For Placement Only ring when you pop the question and then go shop for the real one together! Congrats to Miriam Farooq for this fantastic idea!
(Not familiar with the term FPO?)

The anticipation for today’s Tattly launch has been killing me for weeks! We just uploaded Ax and Hammer, Pliers and Ax and Log by the wonderful Fiona Richards. It doesn’t get any better, or does it?
I wouldn’t mind giving this Bamboo Mixing Bowl Set a home.
I just guffawed when our mailman Peter walked in the door with a plastic pigeon on his shoulder. My awesome friend Bridget sent me a Pigeon Post. My day has been made. It can’t get any better. Carrier Pigeon Post. Hilarious!
A cloud shaped eraser that holds a rainbow of pencils? YES!!
Jewelry that celebrates simple geometric shapes always gets my vote. Love this Diamond Ring and Double Loop Brass Ring by BEPARTstudio on Etsy.
Magneticbook opens to reveal a blank face which can be customized with magnetic features. My kids would *love* this.
These cement earrings are modeled on classic pearl studs. Each concrete sphere is cast by hand and set onto a sterling silver post. Made me chuckle.
(Thank you Tina)
Nothing impresses me more than people that follow through on their ideas. Take my friend Jon Setzen: A few months back he told me he wants to start a candle business, and boom, Arlo Jacob Candle Company was born.
He is currently selling The Courlander and will be soon adding more to his catalog. Arlo Jacob candles are hand-crafted with the essence of Jon’s grandfather’s 75 year-old tobacco recipe and individually hand-poured in California. Oh, and did I mention the beautiful label illustrations by Eleonora Marton? What’s not to like?
This nickel-plated aluminium lunchbox is a beauty. (Unfortunately currently out of stock though)
No need to explain – it’s another f***ing tote. Made me chuckle.
Amplifiear is brilliant in its simplicity, a simple solution to the iPad’s rear facing (and weak) speakers.
Team Tattly launched Gift Cards last week! Nothing better than the recipient choosing the perfect Tattly for themselves. Right? And, to make it more personal, we offer the option of a beautifully handwritten note, by no other than Jen Mussari. Boom!
Tattly Gift Cards are redeemable for any product at Tattly.com and will never expire.
Know anyone that deserves a Hero Medal?
I fully agree with this sentiment: I wish Cheese was a Vegetable. A lovely notebook by Kerry Carambula, the force behind Remedy Quarterly.
Considering how often I drop my phone, I fully qualify to own one of these iPhone Wrist Straps.
One of the most amazing things I have seen at the Etsy Holiday Shop today was this Unicorn Hooded Towel. How can you start your day with a bad mood if you dry yourself off with this in the morning? Impossible!
The iPhone Cable Trigger is a remote shutter release for iDevices. Handy for those times when you want to take a photo without touching your phone, and for starting and stopping video sans camera-shake.
For the past few months my team has been working hard on a brand new gifting site for Tattly. And today’s the day, we finaly launched gift.tattly.com. All of our gift items will conveniently live at one place where it’s simple to purchase, ship and send a little handwritten note to anyone in the world. My team thought of everything and even made it easy to ship to multiple people at different addresses in a single transaction.
You can now get gift cards, choose between three gift sets and the 6-month-Tattly-subscription is finally back!
A big thank you to Yoko for the design, Rusty for concepting and managing the project, Oak for building the site and to Julia for her photomagic.
