Gift Guide: Red is where it’s at!

One of my personal fave colors, red is in full abundance this time of year in the northeast. So many of those lovely green trees have turned a spectacular ruby red color, showing off a bit before dropping all their leaves for winter. I’d like to celebrate autumn in full bloom with a gift guide chock full of red.

This gorgeous red scarf from Elegant Crochets is the perfect addition to any fall wardrobe.

Keep it all written down and near at hand with this double duty handmade journal & sketch pad from Blue Toad.

A girl can never have too many accessories! Mels Bells offers this flower in a number of colors along with a kilt pin to adorn your favorite fall cardigan.

Get ready for the crisp chilly days and the wonderful smell of peppermint with these sparkly beauties from Mamoucha Soaps.

Lil Griffin Designs has exactly what you need to send out any Halloween notes with these festively embellished note cards.

Add a little color to your walls with this deep red snap shot of South Philly available from Chubby Cat Creations.


Of course you have a little black dress, but do you have fantastic earrings like these raven earrings from Glamorosi to pair it with? I didn’t think so…

The individuality of Philadelphia’s residences come through loud and clear on their front doors. Pick up this great photo from Allison Ostertag to liven up your walls.

111Collage Design has captured my heart with this fantastic red maple leaf collage.

Grab these dazzling hair combs from Love Honor Upcycle to liven up any outfit!

I love the Autumn photograph from Jen McCleary and am super psyched to find it in a more portable form – a lens transformed into a pendant.

If you’re into more natural jewelry, pick up this great aragonite crystal necklace from Peaceable Empire.

Although autumn means your tanks will be hidden under many more layers, this super soft version from Steel Pony would be perfect for yoga or as a base layer until it can be in full display.

Don’t forget about the many offerings from the wonderful members of Handmade Philly!
