Tobi’s Holiday Gift Guides: Day 4

Posted by


Welcome back to day 4 of my holiday gift guides!  Today we wrap it up with gift ideas for the men in your life and for the people who have everything.

Ok, girls.  You have to admit – what guy wouldn’t love these!  The Fanning Leather Sandal by Reef has a built-in bottle opener on the bottom.  My husband has a pair and he loves them! $50

Is your man always on the run?  The Juice Pack Air by Mophie is the iPhone owners best friend.  Double his talk time and never again hear “my battery is about to die.” $80

Another great iPhone partner is the iGrill.  Let the iGrill keep an eye on those steaks and it’s app while notify your iPhone or iPad when the food is ready! $100

Bring out the kid in him!  These Marshmallows Roasters from Restoration Hardware even have telescoping forks.  $20

This rugged looking journal will never be confused as a “diary.”  The Saddle Leather Journal is from Pottery Barn.  $29


The Bar Rollup from Moore & Giles is perfect for the man who needs to transport tools for a few cocktails at a tailgate party or at the hunting lodge. $150


And don’t forget a few stylish gifts!  I love the Gancini Pocket Square by Salvatore Ferragamo from Bergdorf Goodman.  $110


Some people just have everything and are impossible to shop for!  Here are my top ideas:

Why not send someone to my upcoming Tobi Fairley Design Camp?  The January Design Camp A to Z even has a “Bring a Friend Free” offer through December 31st.  $1999

Another great pick for the person with everything – pillows from Tobi Fairley Home!  There are now 3 unique collections including Acropolis, Regatta and Saint Nick.  Prices vary

Maybe you know someone who loves to tackle DIY projects but needs a little design help.  My InBox Interiors online design service would be perfect!  Visit the InBox Interiors website for all the details.  Prices vary

Give the gift of high style!  Rock Candy Lamps from Swank Lighting are artisan made in the USA and are one of my favorites!  $3500/pair

This is chic!  Jonathan Adler’s Backgammon Set has a needlepoint board in a white acrylic tray.  Love it!  $295

Need a luxury trip recommendation?  Why not give the gift of Blackberry Farm?  I’ve been to this Tennessee retreat and must say it is truly amazing!

I hope you’ve enjoyed this year’s Holiday Gift Guides!  Happy shoppping! 



Design Camp A to Z

Posted by


Hi Friends,

Just a couple of weeks ago I conducted my first ever 3-day Design Camp and I have to tell you it was AMAZING!  I  haven’t done a recap like this in a while after one of my camps.  But I was just so excited after having almost 40 women in last week from all across the US and Canada, that I just had to bring you my thoughts on it all.

I am seeing great blog posts pop up all over the web already like this one from Linda and her follow up post here.  And this several part series from Jennifer that will give you lots of insight into my Design Camp lessons.  And one more from Heather here. So I won’t reiterate the take-aways here. I hope you will join us yourself to get the full experience of my teachings and ideas and my passion for design. Writing about it just can’t do it justice! But today I want to tell you more about the experience camp brought this session which has left me on a high ever since.

We took everything up a notch for Design Camp A to Z with the all-inclusive accommodations including stretch hummer limos (yes one of them is Barbie pink…I’m all about color right?!?)

And we had a fun night of shopping with our sponsor Cobblestone & Vine and a surprise opportunity to meet designer Annie Selke of Pine Cone Hill and Dash & Albert fame. And those were just the “extras”.

In this first ever three-day camp, we covered so much ground in the 26 steps of my all-new A to Z design process that I sent everyone home on design overload.  But believe me they weren’t complaining. In fact, nobody wanted to leave.

In our Friday morning wrap-up session, every camper stated what their biggest take-away from the camp was and it was so fun to hear all the different opinions.  I am most thrilled that almost every person in camp had a different idea resonate with them.  One camper even said “I’ve died and gone to Heaven!” while another broke out into the song “I’ve had the time of my life” from Dirty Dancing!

I just can’t say enough about how great this camp was for the campers and for me.  I leave each camp inspired as much by the campers as they are by me but this camp seemed to have an extra special dynamic.  Maybe it was because the group was the largest we have ever had for a camp so there were so many different fun ideas and personalities.  Maybe it was because we had longer to bond and become friends (and the two nights of cocktail parties helped with that!). Or maybe it was because so many of the campers brought a friend so they felt comfy and secure having their best buddies along and ultimately enjoyed themselves more by sharing the experience with someone special.

Whatever the case, it was a real pleasure for us all…the campers, my staff and me!

And the good news…we are doing it all over again in January! So if you want to be a part of a special 3 day, all-inclusive Tobi Fairley Design Camp experience with like-minded people from all over the country and beyond and me, then hurry and sign up today!  I can hardly wait to meet you and be inspired by you too!

Take a look at where Design Camp A to Z campers traveled from to attend Design Camp in Little Rock…

Our November camp brought campers from states including California, North Carolina, Texas, Florida, Georgia, Colorado, Maryland, Massachusettes, Indiana, Kentucky, Oklahoma, Virginia, Arkansas and more. We even had a camper from Canada and I can’t wait to see which states join us in January!

Sign up today and take advantage of the Bring A Friend for Free and the Early Bird Special of $1999.00.  These specials will be going away by the end of the year so don’t miss out!

Want Santa to bring you Design Camp Tuition this year? It’s the perfect Christmas gift, so tell your loved ones to call or send us an email us to purchase your camp tuition and we will sign you up and send a Design Camp Gift Card beautifully wrapped with your name on it!

I look forward to seeing many of you in our January camp which is just 6 weeks away!

And to all of you who joined me in November and all of our previous camps this year…Thank You! I am grateful to know you and to be inspired by you and I hope to see you again real soon.  xoxo, Tobi
