Is it just us or does this time of year feel like holiday season 2.0 with all the gift-giving? Mother?s Day, showers, graduations, a parade of birthdays--how will we ever find enough thoughtful, won?t-break-the-bank offerings?
What?s Brika, you ask? The brainchild of Kena Paranjape (a Banana Republic merchandising alum) and Jen Lee Koss (a Harvard and Oxford grad), the cheery site is a shopping destination for thoroughly modern handmade goods. The stylish pair curates an impeccable selection of jewelry, home decor, stationery and precious things for tots (e.g., these mini oxfords).
Brika features a choice number of talented Bay Area designers, including Meg Galligan of Margaret Elizabeth jewelry--whose emerald-cut onyx drop earrings ($128) we?re swooning over--and NorCal-raised Marie Yi of Good Season, who makes gorgeous, grown-up friendship bracelets ($26). Put the finishing touches on your present with a sweet gift-tag stamp ($8) from Brown Pigeon.
Brika is offering PureWow readers $10 off their first purchase and free shipping on any order over $50. There, your search for the perfect gifts is over. (You?re welcome, moms!)
