My 5 Best Gifts: Taniya Nayak from HGTV

Let's face it: giving the perfect gift to someone is like standing on top of a mountain and shouting, "HEY EVERYONE, I'M NOT AN EMOTIONAL CRIPPLE!"   

My 5 Best Gifts is a recurring feature that asks people to give up the goods on the best gifts they've given or received. 

If you've ever watched HGTV even once, you probably know who Taniya Nayak is.  She's appeared on Destination Design, Designed to Sell, Bang for Your Buck, and is the current host of the new show, House Hunters on Vacation.  In addition to all of all of this professional stuff, she is absolutely adorable and hilarious.

[GIFTED] Flowers in a Can

So you decided to move to New York City to pursue your dreams but didn't realize that pursuing your dreams would result in living in a tiny apartment that very much resembles the gutter.

Add some lucious greenery to your terrible apartment with Flowers in a Can ($14, Fred Flare).  They've got dahlias, geraniums, impatiens, pansies, sunflowers, petunias, marigolds and more.

Here we go!

[SHAMELESS SELF-PROMOTION] 10 Things We Love About 7th Avenue

Anyone living in New York should take a look at the "10 Things We Love About 7th Avenue" feature I wrote for Time Out New York this week.

There's a bunch of great shit on that list, AND if you go to these stores, there is a very good chance you'll run into me, stumbling home from my local bodega, hungover with a bottle of ginger ale. 

See you out there!


[GIFTED] Saturdays NYC Bolt Collection

Hey, Sporty Spice, looking for some nice athletic gear?  Trying not to look like that asshole at the gym wearing the stained, ripped up AC/DC tour t-shirt? 

Look no further than the Lightning Bolt Tee ($35) and Backdoor Pipe Shorts ($70) from Saturdays NYC. They're perfect for "running."  And if you're like me, "running" means sprinting through the park for 10 minutes and then walking the rest of the way while gossiping with a friend.

Good luck out there.
