Can you believe the holidays are just around the corner? You know what that means– it is time for our annual gift guides! Over the course of the next few weeks, I’ll bring you my curated gift guides filled with my personally selected gift selections for everyone on your list, so be sure to check in often.
I really don’t collect too many things, unless you count stacks upon stacks of beautiful books on design, fashion, travel, and style icons. I love reading my beloved books and turning to them for inspiration. A beautiful coffee table book is at the top of my list of favorite gifts to give and receive, so I thought it would be great to kick off this year’s “LDV Holiday Gift Guides” with a round-up of fabulous books! Naturally, a good portion of the list is made up of design books—I’ve chosen my favorite titles of the year from tastemakers like Michael S Smith, Carrier and Company, and Carolyne Roehm; along with new titles about style icons Oscar de la Renta, Parish-Hadley, and Diana Vreeland; and indispensable books from friends Lauren Liess and Eddie Ross. There are books for a variety of interests on this year’s list, so you’re sure to find something your loved ones will enjoy.
