Just spotted my wallet on the Kate Spade Secret Sale today and wanted to share with you guys because it’s one of my favorite things (a very special birthday gift) and it’s currently more than half off. Quite a steal. And the most gorgeous shade of pink you’ve ever seen. And if you’re feeling matchy you can grab the passport holder, too.
And while I’m at it I may as well post a few other things in the shop that have caught my eye for your gift-giving inspiration!

These drop earrings have holiday party written all over them (these ones, too if you like a little color).
I have a slightly larger southport bag and it’s my go-to black bag for work. It’s a beautiful pebbled leather– it holds its shape so well for that crisp professional look. This one would be a great holiday gift for a 9-5 gal. Or this one for a more casual feel.
This polished diaper bag would be a total show stopper at any baby shower. And making a new mama feel special is no small thing.
Let me know your favorites once you check it out!

For her first day on the job: whether she’s doing PR in a big city or working from home in a suburb. Or for a work anniversary 5, 10 or 20 years in. What a sweet way to say “You’ve got this girl!”
Six-Axis Star c/o KO Sticks
This foldable star sculpture may just be the most giftable item I’ve ever featured on Gifts with Bows. Why? Well it works for just about anyone on almost any occasion:
It’s office appropriate, making it suitable for work anniversaries and first days on the job.
It’s chic in the living room (gorgeous for newlyweds ready for sophisticated decor and entertaining for families with kiddos), making it a lovely housewarming gift or wedding present.
And yes, even kids can make perfect recipients. Imagine hanging a few from the ceiling in their bedroom or playroom. Or keep them in reach… because these hand made works of art are intended to be explored by hand (see the evidence in the photo story below).
But it gets even better. Not only are KO Sticks Stars a widely practical gift, they come in several sizes and materials. That means you can buy one for $24-170 hitting whatever your appropriate price point happens to be.
Note: KO Sticks is comprised of two great artisans (and mathematicians), Jane and John Kostick. Married for just over 20 years, they met at a geometry lecture and now construct geometric objects side by side. Now isn’t that an equation you’d like to support? Give KO Sticks a follow on Facebook to give your newsfeed a welcomed pop of art.
The other day I took our stars off of the living room bookshelves where they are typically on display (see above). And brought them to the park so that our three year old, Zoe could show them to her friends. Ready to see a few thoughtful and curious faces? And park adventures, too of course!
Photos: The bookshelf and park photos are my own and the product photos are by Design Within Reach, a KO Sticks retailer. A special thanks to Zoe’s pals for making their darling debuts on GWB.
