OUR NAPTIME DIARIES
Of a Kind’s offices are now officially closed for the holidays. Because being internet moguls is exhausting, and we need our damn rest. Don’t worry: Our warehouse is still shipping, and we’re still busy cooking up “10 Things” and answering your customer service emails. The only major difference between now and normal is that I’m writing this from my bed. Hopefully you’re reading it from yours. And if you’re even considering climbing out from under the covers to hit the mall for last-minute gifting, screw your head back on straight and get a gift certificate on the internet like the modern person that you are. —claire
- Taking a trip down Talkboy and Furby memory lane with this list of toys of gifting-seasons past.
- Really loving Tasting Table’s tribute to neighborhood-restaurant gems that don’t always get the love they deserve—it includes Barbuto, where we had our tremendously tasty team holiday dinner.
- Wanting to make a pegboard headboard HAPPEN. So good, right?!

- Stuffing a stocking with a straight-up genius office supply: the stapleless stapler.
- Feasting on the most delicious dungeness crabs shipped straight from San Francisco to my mouth by Alioto-Lazio Seafood Company. Perfect zero-prep-required dinner party idea.
- Thinking it’s time for all of those rainbow-coordinated bookshelves to move over and make room for something even prettier: the gorgeous tomes of Juniper Books.
- Loving these alt gingerbread houses commissioned by Vogue and dreamed up by the likes of designer Rachel Comey and so-hot-right-now artist Will Cotton.
- Determining every office deserves one of these amazing custom felt pennants emblazoned with the company’s name hanging in its entryway. Starting with Of a Kind.
- Eagerly anticipating the publication of The Guardian’s “10-year Blog Project” which will feature some of the best user-submitted Livejournal and Xanga entries from days of yore. Don’t be selfish: Submit yours today.
