Gift Picks for the Tastemaker in Your Life

This guest post comes from our friend Elizabeth Kott from CLOSET RICH – a stylish premiere online shop with amazing vintage + pre-loved goodies! Here are her picks for the trend-setter in your life:

Interior designer Kelly Wearstler’s career trajectory is on the radar of any knowing style-maven. Thus, anything from herrecently launched clothing and accessories line is a a good call – I am partial to this twisted brass ring.
Coffee table books have a beautiful way of setting a tone for a space but are not things one generally buys for themselves, which is why I like giving them as gifts. This one for little monsters and fashion fans alike, is my pick for the season, claws up.
I live for a fancy candle and love giving (and getting) them as gifts, but picking scents for people can be tricky. This scent is fail proof -created years ago exclusively for NYC’s Gramercy Park Hotel- it’s very understated and the perfect choice for any guy or girl who craves a bit of luxury.
Why is it that a good ipad case is so difficult to track down? This DVF option wins my vote for best style/function combo. Muy importante.
Pressed Juicery is a seriously yummy organic juice spot in Los Angeles, and luckily their fresh juice kits can be delivered anywhere in the country- this gift is equal parts unique, healthy and delicious.






Elizabeth Kott, is the founder of, a fabulously curated online destination for pre-loved and vintage clothing finds. Quickly becoming one of the best kept secret’s on the Los Angeles fashion scene- Closet Rich’s inventory hails directly from closets of the city’s most fashionable inhabitants. A former member of Rachel Zoe’s team, Kott certainly knows a thing or two about finding the most unique gifts for that fab trendsetter in your life.
