The Ruby Spoon Holiday Gift Guide 2013

This is my first Holiday Gift Guide and I’m excited to share some of these gift ideas with you. Happy Shopping!


Ottolenghi The Cookbook. From the same author as Plenty and Jerusalem. This is on my Christmas list. I’ve been drooling over it at the bookstore for weeks.


Osmia Organics soap. These beautiful and natural soaps are luxurious and they smell amazing. I love Juniper Shea as well as Ylang Spring. For the holidays try Evergreen Shea or Lavender Pine as well!

feed bag

This reversible Feed bag goes with me everywhere. I use it for schlepping my stuff around town!  The purchase of this bag provides 1 child with school lunches for 1 year.

lip whip

Kari Gran Lip Whip. This organic tinted whipped lip balm in Cinnamon Pimenta-Berry is my favorite. It also comes in Peppermint.

beer tote

Wooden Beer Tote with Bottle Opener. Perfect for toting your mixed 6 pack to a friends house. (Or for them to tote beer to YOUR house.)

agate coasters

This set of 4 beautiful agate coasters would make a great hostess gift for the holidays. (Or any time of year, really.)


Limited edition Askinosie sipping chocolate that is infused with single origin Intelligentsia coffee. Need I say more?

usa project

The USA Project playing cards. As a card lover, I think this deck of playing cards that features work from 54 different artists would make a really great gift.


Harney and Sons Hot Cinnamon Spice Tea. This is my favorite tea to sip at Christmas time.  It also comes in teabags.


la creuset tea pot

Speaking of tea, The La Creuset teapot with infuser would make a great gift for any tea lover!

walnut bookend

A unique Walnut Bookend with an industrial Edison light bulb to add an illuminating touch. Perfect for the book lover.

old tom

Ransom Old Tom gin would make a great gift for the cocktail aficionado. This gold medal winner and subtly malty gin is the star ingredient in my absolute favorite cocktail, an old tom old fashioned. (Recipe coming soon!) I always make sure one is in my cabinet.

tovolo ice spheres

Tovolo Ice Sphere Molds make the perfect large spherical ice balls that melt ever so slowly in those old fashioneds.


bulldog opener

And for the beer (and dog) lover, the bulldog bottle opener.


Voluspa Baltic Amber candle smells amazing!!

murchison hume


I love Murchison Hume Heirloom Dishwashing Liquid. I have the Australian White Grapefruit and it looks beautiful on the counter. It’s a nice big bottle, and the best part? it’s refillable. After the initial purchase, you can buy refill bottles.
