Don’t get stuck on Red Envelope (although we admit that’s a classy retail site). reflects Cristi’s sophisticated taste and the simplicity she craved in online shopping. offers only select gift items, some exclusively designed for the site and all chosen by Cristi herself. Shoppers will be thrilled by this "best of" site that makes finding the perfect gift easy for even the most challenged gift-giver.

Cristi has always delighted in searching out unusual and elegant gifts and is constantly complimented on her taste and thoughtfulness when giving a gift. As a stylish new mother, Cristi realized that having a newborn made it difficult to shop for the fabulous gifts she usually sought out. She set about creating a well-edited website filled with gifts for any occasion that would also offer a pleasant on-line shopping experience.

All gifts come wrapped in a signature suede pouch. gift boxes and wrapping are also available. The site offers gifts in the price range from $30 - $400.
