There are luxurious fabrics in your future.

Why: Treat your smartphone the way you want to be treated.
Where: Online at shannonsouth.com.

Why: Greet 2012 on even terms with a hanging linen printed wall calendar ($20).

The Low Bow
What: Inanimate objects like to head south for the winter, too. Snatch up a dapper crafted bow tie that’s attached to a 24-inch sterling silver chain for an unconventional necklace ($95).
