Holiday Gift Guide: The Roommate
Posted on December 11 2011
She may leave her dirty dishes in the sink and borrow your clothes without asking, but you love her anyway, especially when she turns down the music when you have a headache or shares the cookies she just baked. What better way to show your appreciation for a good roommate than something sweet from Lille? Jewelry is always a safe bet, and we have some gorgeous earrings by local designers AK Vintage and Hazel Cox, plus incredible bracelets and necklaces from New York designer Orly Genger by Jaclyn Meyer. (She'll probably even let you borrow them some time!) A sweet robe by Eberjey says, "I care about your comfort level in our apartment," even if you disagree on the temperature at which to set the thermostat. Finally, Red Flower's luxury organic bath and body line is a great way to encourage her to relax and chill out, thereby ensuring that she'll be a little less crabby after a long, stressful day at work. You're giving her the gift of time spent on herself—the only risk being that she might end up using all the hot water in the shower before you.
