GIFT GUIDE // Holiday Gift Guide ft. Boo and Boo Factory





















































In an instance of good coming from bad, we discovered Christina Anton’s absolutely amazing Boo & Boo Factory when she contacted us upon discovering an overseas company had stolen a design from us. We explored her Etsy store and have been smitten ever since with her architectural, crazy bright pieces. We’re lucky to have the lovely Christina as our first gift guide guest…


Christina’s selections are a clear representation of her aesthetic. Embracing bright, poppy color in abstract, seemingly freeform compositions, she also clearly has an appreciation for simple geometric form. Take a look at her favorite gifts that embrace “Color & Form.”

1. Semi-Precious ‘Sapphire’ Stack Bracelet by Geoflora

When I first discovered Margaret and Ellen Hinrich’s beautiful handmade jewelry line Geoflora, I gasped!  The pieces are playful and bold in form, ranging from geometric lattice earrings, gemstone inspired bracelets and earrings, and my fern series jewelry designs. It is difficult to select just one piece from their shop because they are all so unique and beautiful! $65

2. Infinite Candies Zipper Clutch by Kindah Khalidy

I have been following Kindah’s work for quite some time and have fallen in love with her stunning clutches.  She is a talented painter and her artwork is featured on fabrics that she uses to design adorable clutch bags, as well as tapestries and scarfs.  The colors and compositions of her designs are so unique and colorful resulting in major eye candy.  This clutch would make a wonderful gift for a friend, or for yourself. $46

3. Black and Gold Spotted Tear Drop Vase by The Object Enthusiast

Emily Reinhardt creates gorgeous ceramic vases, dishes and vessels with beautiful colors, pattern and textures.  To me, nothing says holidays like this handmade black ceramic vase with delicate gold leaf polka dots.  Great d├ęcor for hosting a large dinner party or even a small get together. $36


I love color and this painting just really speaks to me.  I love the abstract composition and the texture.  It contains a lot of soft elements, such as lighter color and detailed pattern, with hard elements, such as dark color and heavier brush strokes.  Definitely a must have! $150

5. Planets Necklace by Marmod8

This beaded necklace contains a variety of gorgeous beads ranging from howlite, lava rock, jasper and agate.  I absolutely love this piece! It is so chic and elegant to wear with a party dress.  The simplicity in form contrasted with the complexity of the pattern in each stone makes this a perfect holiday piece. I want them all! $100

6. Weaving by Kayla Mattes

What says warm and cozy for winter?  This amazing woven tapestry by Kayla Mattes.  The best part of the holidays is decorating your home to share with friends and family.  I would love to have an entire wall of these gorgeous hand woven pieces.  They are rich in texture and pattern, and I love her unique take on textiles, incorporating modern geometric form with bold color.  Her work is truly inspiring! $125 


We love the combination of natural materials and bright colors that characterize many of Christina’s picks. That Geoflora stack bracelet just might find its way into our stocking…
