Kate Albrecht

Whether we’re in the market for outfit inspiration, a great vegan dinner recipe or, to be perfectly honest, a motivator to get off our asses, our first stop is Mr. Kate. Domestic doyenne and jewelry designer Kate Albrecht is chock-full o’ home, fashion, food and various other lifestyle ideas—most of which are all DIY or on the cheap.

Kate's Gift Guide:

1. BookBook Computer Covers; $80-100
Let's face it, these days, our computers are an accessory! I get so many compliments on this laptop cover. It's reinforced and super protective, and you don't even have to take your computer out to use it... just unzip and type away!”

2. Dazzling Lanna Bags, $89-400
I love tribal print anything and Dazzling Lanna has the best handmade purses and bags incorporating the most beautiful traditional prints ever. These are sure to spruce up any basic outfit and will hold just about anything you need.

3. Govino Unbreakable Wine Glasses, $12.95-228.95
Who doesn't like wine, and who doesn't like wine on the go? A picnic with a little vino, Italian bread and olive tapanade sounds just perfect to me and Govino makes it a classy experience with their unbreakable glasses.

4. Dear June handmade, hand-dyed cotton scarves, $50
Scarves are always a great go-to gift and these from Dear June are simply beautiful. Clean, simple, lightweight and something you could throw on with just about anything.
