Sponsored Post: Guest of a Guest's Last Minute Holiday Gift Guide

by Molly Harrington · December 14, 2011

Despite Stanley's new celeb status, he's still finding time to play Santa Claus this year. And, to make it easier for your last minute gift options, he's put together this guide below!

Daria de Koning

Looking for a sparkly gift for your lady? These beautiful rings from local designer Daria de Koning will really get her attention.

Daria's strives to design and build works of art that make one stand out in a crowd; jewelry that makes the wearer feel one-of-a-kind. Each piece is crafted to become a stylish statement to be fearlessly worn and proudly displayed. In a world over-saturated with jewelry, I aim to create sophisticated compositions that bring daily pleasure and last for many lifetimes.

This Luna ring (left) and Dagny stack-able ring (below) make great gifts if you really want to impress. Her collection also includes some fantastic pendant necklaces and unique drop earrings.

No Mas

This year, give the sports fanatic in your life a tee from No Mas' new Muhammad Ali collection!

Founded by ex-journalist and childhood sports monomaniac, Chris Isenberg, No Mas makes sports inspired art, apparel and media equally devoted to the "the thrill of victory and the ecstasy of defeat." The brand got its start in 2004, when Isenberg began to create t- shirts for himself and friends which referenced iconic moments in sports and celebrated his childhood athletic heroes. After receiving a steady stream of compliments, protests, and requests to purchase on the street, he began offering limited run pieces to Nom de Guerre and Union New York under the brand No Mas.

This collection of tees includes this "The Greatest" tee, as well as "Ali Bee" and "Ali Training Camp" tees.

Jene DeSpain

Want to give a New York inspired gift without having to purchase a cheesy "I ♥ NY" tee?  We love these Jene DeSpain Chrysler Earrings from the Roaring 10's Collection.  They come in green onyx (shown), as well as black onyx, red garnet, hematite, blue quartz, and red carnelian.

With each collection, Jené broadens her exploration of design and her devotion to creating striking pieces of jewelry outside the confines of momentary trends. Cultivating a constantly evolving community of fellow designers, artists, musicians, stylists, and patrons of her work, is Jené’s greatest source of inspiration. Her collaboration with the expanse of talent in NYC and beyond connects Jené to the pulse of fashion while she creates bold, distinct jewelry for those who respond to innovative design. This love of culture is revealed in each piece of her jewelry and remains at the heart of her brand.

The collection also includes Rockefeller and Carnegie necklaces, Empire earrings, and many more one-of-a-kind pieces!
