Charming Periwinkle stocks wallet-friendly presents for everyone you need to remember.
One Day at a Time Desk Pads, $32
Don’t let the boring name fool you. The beautiful gilded-edge notepads (available in sets of three) caught our attention thanks to their substantial size (the largest we’ve seen). They’re also the perfect medium for your flighty best friend to jot down all her great ideas.
A Year’s Supply of Toothbrushes, $12
Each of the four bamboo brushes is marked with a word like concentrate or contemplate and serves as a practical choice for that particular uncle waging a war against plaque.
Our Generation Artisan Biscuits, $9
Making their U.S. debut, the toothsome British treats are ideal last-minute hostess gifts (and perfect for those you’ve mistakenly left off your list). We recommend the pecan and maple butter crunch or the fruit and almond finger.
Ops Rubber Watch, $25
That guy you just started dating will always be on time if you get him an Italian-made digital timepiece in a bright color (green, yellow, orange, purple, or white).
Carnivale Desktop Calendar, $25
A pint-size calendar showcasing Benjamin Paul’s letterpress images of vintage rides and roller coasters (which can be mailed as postcards after the months have passed) is just the thing for that cubicle mate who’s stuck listening to all your ups and downs.
Periwinkle, 3815 Livingston Street Northwest, between Connecticut Avenue and 39th Street (202-364-3076).
