Gift Shopping with Michelle Vale

Tea with Eloise at the Plaza, ice skating in the city, dinner at Le Bernardin, custom gifts from her eponymous hand bag line - Michelle Vale has definitely checked her gift list. Twice.Michelle Vale's American Made Gift List

For my husband… A custom made in New York Michelle Vale men’s briefcase, J Brand Jeans, Allen Edmonds shoes. A leather carryall created just for him. Sentimental, one of a kind gifting for my one and only. We both love J Brand for casual days and new shoes to go with…

For my daughter… Washable Paints/Art Supplies/Eloise afternoon Tea at the Plaza. My daughter definitely is a mini me. She loves to create. She spends hours and hours drawing and painting the day away. She also loves creative play. She will just adore the Rawther Fancy Tea Party at the Plaza with grandma, my niece and me!

For my niece... My niece loves to visit and loves all things fancy and fashion. She will love walking the runway and shopping at the Eloise store after a fancy tea at the Plaza.

For my son... Tickets to the Winter Classic at Yankee Stadium. Devils vs. Rangers, baseball meets hockey... my son's dream come true.

For my nephew… Kids Baby Rib ¾ Sleeve Raglans and ice skating with the cousins at one of the many great ice rinks in New York followed by delicious hot cocoa. I am all about the experiential holiday gift! Following in my son’s footsteps my nephew loves all things sports!

My favorite holiday tradition… A late romantic Christmas Eve dinner, followed by Santa preparations, followed by early morning gift opening, followed by a hearty breakfast including homemade biscuits and bacon!
