We don’t do gift guides here on Design Milk because, well, everyone does them. We like to be different. So we decided to go in another direction this year. Since our staff is getting larger, we thought it would be fun to ask each person what was on their wishlist this holiday season. So, every day for next 2 weeks we’ll feature a staff wishlist. Here’s what Erin hopes to get:

1. Fair Isle Bootie at Urban Outfitters
Because the truth is, I spend 99% of my time in pajamas and slippers. And mine are sorta starting to smell.

2. Crystal Counterpart Decanter at Anthropologie
I collect white things, because for some reason, I feel a bit more Scandinavian that way. This would make the loveliest addition to my collection… ever.

3. Herringbone Throw at Auto
Do I need a reason to love this?

4. Beechwood Kitchen Utensils at A+R
I just bought a fixer-upper and can’t wait to display these in my newly renovated kitchen! Eek!

5. Covo Teapot at DeDeCe
Because this is the prettiest teapot I’ve ever seen in my entire life.

6. I Love Your Style: How to Define and Refine Your Personal Style by Amanda Brooks at Amazon
I re-invent my wardrobe entirely too often and am hoping that one day, I’ll finally get my act together and achieve the ultimate in style definition. Until then, I’m riding the coattails of Amanda Brooks.
