I first came across Wendy Gee! in Larchmont when I was shopping for a new Dash & Albert rug for my kitchen. When I walked in, I had no idea I was in for such a treat! Before I even made it to the rug display, I was distracted by the gorgeous gifts and home accessories. Then I noticed there was a PLAY AREA for kids in the back of the store, and I almost fell over. This is my dream store!
Here are a few highlights and gift ideas for this summer carefully curated by owner, Lee Rubin:
Whether you’ll be a weekend houseguest this summer, or simply joining friends for a BBQ, these geography glasses are a personal gift that everyone will love (and actually use!). Choose their favorite college town, vacation spot, or honeymoon destination. ($14 per glass.)
These cheerful outdoor dining accessories are the perfect accompaniment to your blueberry tart at your neighbor’s 4th of July pig roast! Tin Trays ($88), Dot Glasses (Set of 4, $59), Placemats (Set of 4, $24), and Napkins (Set of 4, $38).
You can’t go wrong with these preppy personalized frames for grads, dads, or really just about anyone. (Personalized frames are $58, stock frames are $48.)
