With the holidays upon us, TODAY style editor and Bobbie.com's Bobbie Thomas highlights a few items that will make your life stylishly simple during the most hectic season of the year.
Type A accessories
'Tis the season for "to-do's" with gifts, groceries, guests and more on your list. And just in time, Post-it's Pop-Up Note Compact comes to the rescue. Complete with a lipstick mirror, the purse-sized dispenser is a stylish solution for your scribbles. Also included in their new Fashion Collection: a shoe tape dispenser and over-sized gem paperweight! ($9.99, Quill.com)
If your social calendar overflows, have no fear because now you can be in two places at once. All Blown Up is ready and waiting to send your 'stand-in' via a life-sized custom cutout. A clever way not to miss out, make grandma smile or secretly avoid the in-laws! ($35 to $85, AllBlownUp.com)
It's a wrap
We buy beautiful wrapping paper only to rip it up! Seems like a cruel joke, but consider feeling better about it by giving back.
One Kings Lane has collaborated with fashion favorites to offer a Holiday Charity Series. Proceeds from the 21-piece gift wrap collection designed by Rachel Roy, Simon Doonan, Lela Rose, Rachel Zoe, Stacy Bendet and more, will support a variety of philanthropic causes (3 rolls, $15, OneKingsLane.com).
