Sharing your favorite products, could be the greatest gift of all.

We all have those hard to buy for friends on our list. You know, the ones who have everything and need nothing. What do you get? How about sharing your favorite products and secrets? Purchase all your favorites and wrap them up! It also becomes the gift that is a constant reminder. Every time they use one of your favorites, they are reminded of you.

My favorites:

Screen Shot 2017-12-13 at 5.02.53 PM.pngMy favorite mascara is by beauty society. I love how each layer goes on so thin that it never clumps. It also comes with a mirror and light. It’s a cool little feature, but I honestly never use it. You can get it here







This is my makeup secret. People tell me I have great skin, I don’t. It’s this little treasure from benefit that makes me look like I have great skin. Dandelion brightening finishing powder. Just lightly brushing it on after your blush gives a flawless look. It really is like magic.



Goè solid body oil really is an amazing product. This is not a typical product that I would sell, but I loved it so much, I had to share with my customers. I use this all over my body and my hair! I finally experienced winter without white flakey legs! You need just the tiniest bit to get rid of fly away hair and add shine.

I’ve always been a lipgloss girl, not lipstick. This is another product I fell in love with and brought intoPresence to share with my customers. First let me tell you the deal with lip gloss. The stickier it is, the longer it lasts. I HATE sticky lip gloss! If you hate reapplying this is not the product for you. This lip gloss has zero sticky factor and therefore needs constant reapplying. I’m good with it. It feels amazing! The light and mirror on the case is an added plus. There’s not a bad color in the bunch. Beauty Society Lip Glisten.

The Eye Pillow With A Kitsch

     I was lucky enough to be a guest at the Mayflower Grace Spa. It was spectacular! Everything just feels and smells better at a spa. I was excited to walk into the spa gift shop, hoping to find some of the luxuries that I sensed throughout my stay. Quietly resting on a glass shelf were the beautiful eye pillows they had used during my treatments. At first glance they are still “just an eye pillow” albeit in beautiful silk fabrics. Then I noticed the little glass bottle beautifully tied to the pillow. I was intrigued. The lovely sales woman began explaining and I was excited to see that these eye pillows had something more. It comes with a bottle of essential oil and pads. You put drops of oil on the pads and then slip the scented pad into the pocket stitched in the pillowcase. Almost anything to help promote sleep and decrease stress is a good product. This is exactly the kind of item I search for and get excited to bring into Presence of Piermont. Yes it’s been ordered and can’t wait for them to arrive!

The Picnic Bag Reinvented

So I was super excited when I found this new product by Built at the New York Gift Show back in February.  Now that it’s arrived I can finally share it with you.  The bag starts as a very clean looking tote and easily unzips and (this is the best part),  the table is set!!  Every item is in it’s place.  Check it out…

built tote

There are so many occasions to use this fabulous new product.  Personally I’m using it for our local pool.  We go late in the day and stay for dinner.  The picnic tote is perfection for this!!  Wouldn’t this be great to bring out July 4th to watch the fire works?  Of course what we sell at Presence of Piermont is the perfect gift…and this is the perfect wedding or anniversary gift!!

Stop and Smell the Flowers…

Library of Flowers

I’m Obsessed with the creme parfum!!  fb

Library of Flowers is taking over anything that was once my Spring & Summer scent with their amazing innovative PERFUME CREAM! Comes in a tin just like a body butter.   Dab it on your neck, wrist- anywhere, and you’re transformed by scent.  Not kidding…I sniff my wrist all day long!!   It’s also great for travel since it’s NOT liquid.

Comes in three scents:

Wild Flower & Fern”  this scent smells like you just bathed a baby and covered them in Johnson Baby Lotion.  Very clean and fresh.  Susan’s fave!!

The Forest”  It happens to be my personal favorite.  It’s a bit woodsy and smells like a man’s cologne.    Reminds me of  the cologne Drakkar.

Arboretum”   Summer clean with a fresh and light floral scent.  Not too distinct of a scent making it my choice for gifting and it’s Jamie’s fave!!


The packaging in this line is delicious and makes it perfect for gifting!!  And if that wasn’t enough…ITS’ MADE IN THE USA!!!


I love how the hand cream comes in a wood box. The packaging lets this item stand alone as a gift.

The bubble bath comes in large very cool tin container, sure dress up your tub!!


The perfume comes in a wood box with ribbon around the neck.

Their traditional perfume comes in a naked wood box with cotton ribbon around the neck. Looks very Anthropologie!!

Dear Somebody….

“To send a letter is a good way to go somewhere without
moving anything but your heart.”  ~Phyllis Theroux

In a world where text messages, e-mails, and maybe a face-time call if we are lucky, rule the world, I think it’s time we turn OFF and start WRITING again! A pen? Paper? Pencil? I know… It seems almost as ancient as stone carving. But think of the difference between the generic font of your iMessage and your own personal chicken scratch! It’s easier to send a thank you, an invite, or a happy birthday wish through technology but I say we get back to our roots- PAPER PRODUCTS! Bring color, glitter, personalization and that sentimental touch with something a little more meaningful.

Check out The Paper Queen at for all your customized needs! Note pads, stationary, cards & more- browse through the entire illustration gallery to design every inch of your own paper goods. Choose what font, what color, what character- and even what they wear! Right down to the heels! This Paper Queen knows us women all too well.

Message In A Bottle Gets Techy

Message In A Bottle USB Zip Drive

Message In A Bottle USB Zip Drive

The Message in a bottle was a way to communicate across the ocean back in the day.     Molla Space  takes the romance of the
time old tradition of “A Message In A Bottle” and combines it with the new technology of flashdrives in this kitschy useful device.  What a cool way to store vacation memories, important documents or gifting a personal message.  What once was paper has been replaced with  a 4GB USB flash drive that is attached to the cork.  Genius!

USB Zip Drive

The USB flash drive is a way of storing documents or images.  Great for the student saving and sharing work.  I love the concept for saving and sharing vacation images.

It’s Useful, Fun, Kitschy and Gifty!

Don’t Let Your Towels Slip Away

It still excites me to find new products.  Finding solutions to problems I never knew I had, and sharing those solutions and ideas with my customers.    Here’s an innovative one from ToweLocs.  It’s a decorative fastener that keeps your towel from falling.  So simple and useful.


  Comes in tons of styles, colors and materials.  Makes a fabulous hostess gift.

How Do You Roast Your Weenies?

Roasting marshmallows and hot dogs are not just for camping anymore.  Outdoor fire pits have been popping up in backyards all over the nation.  It’s a great way for families to spend quality time together as well as an awesome party activity for both kids and adults.

This growing trend has made way for a new gift item.  Fun and stylish roasting sticks.  Makes a really unique gift that is useful, different and personal.  The handles are ceramic so they wont get hot and the sticks are 39″ long so you can sit back and enjoy the fire.

A Year of Gratitude.

This is my favorite new item at  A Year of Gratitude.

Each act of gratitude starts a ripple of kindness that begins with you and reaches further than you can imagine.  Every letter you write adds joy to the world, so take out your pen and begin.


Here’s how it works.  Kit comes with 52 thank you cards.  Write one card each week for a year.  The ripple effect is endless.  Given as a gift, gives someone else the opportunity to start their own ripple.
