Gold Stars for Everyone

And the award goes to …

gold bar! Bar Code
Set the standards high with a gold bar doorstop ($99) that doubles as a paperweight. Oh, and FYI: It’s made out of aluminum.
sarah magid! Golden Delicious
Sarah Magid’s treats are worth their weight in, well, you get the picture. Whip them up at home following the recipe in the pastry chef’s book ($19).
alessi! Spoon-Fed
Why eat from a silver spoon when you can go for the gold? This modern flatware ($60) from Alessi will let people know your food is top-notch.
hunter! Wellie Deserved
Thanks to Hunter, there’s no reason to sacrifice style on rainy days. Gold boots (£40) mean you can splish splash regally in the next torrential downpour.
nicole romano!Golden Girl
Stay in the fashion loop with Nicole Romano’s statement-piece necklace ($264) that’s just the right amount of rock ’n’ roll.
