I have my eye on these beautiful reels of ribbon. Made from colorful recycled cotton saris from Bangladesh, each roll has it's own unique colorway and pattern. ($8.50) – Berit, senior editor

Maybe it's because I'm hot on Egypt right now (the snake was a divine authority in ancient times). Or maybe it's because I am knocked-up (the animal represents fertility and the life force), but I can't stop thinking about Ippolita Ferrari's hand-painted serpent earrings. In blue, black, and pink (or a custom color) with gold leaf stripes on a gold-filled hoop, they're at the top of my wish list. ($85)– Jeralyn, editorial director

A food stylist and writer friend of mine splits her time between Brooklyn and Paris, where she's learned the intricacies of French cocktail hour firsthand. She has distilled her know-how into  a new book of beautifully photographed cocktails and recipes that evoke la vie en rose. ($12) — Larkin, contributing editor 

Sounds nerdy, but all I really want right now is this super portable fill light.

($98) – Daniel, editor
