Cat's Meow by Nicky Hilton Stocking
Nicky said, "For the holidays I've created a set of festive mini stockings that will benefit the Animal Haven Shelter, which helps to find homes for abandoned cats and dogs throughout the Tri-State are of New York. All of the stockings are hand stitched by single moms in Haiti. I just had to include a cat stocking in the collection for my fellow cat lovers!"
E!: We are all trying to channel our inner Kathy Hilton these days. What's your favorite product recommendation from your mom?
NH: My mom LOVES Christmas, so any additions to her Christmas decorations is always a good idea. Or if you really want to channel her, get yourself a great Christmas sweater. She would love it.
Christmas Time In The City Dessert Plate
Nicky shared, "My mother is obsessed with Christmas and she loves to travel, so these dishes showing Christmas in different cities would be perfect for her. It's just so cute and festive."
These dishes are available in Los Angeles and New York City themes. There are even some matching mugs if you want to get super festive.

NH: I love sleeping with an eye mask, this one has great cushioning and no light comes in.

E!: You and your husband have celebrated many holidays together, do you have any tips on how to keep gift giving fresh and thoughtful throughout the years?
NH: Pay attention to what your partner really needs. Practical gifts that fill a need in your life are great and it makes a person feel as though you are paying attention to them in daily life. Then get at least one thing that is special—cute earrings, charms, whatever they love but don't necessarily need. This makes a person feel the butterflies of being a person's "special someone."
E!: Your daughters are four and five years old. Do you have any gift recommendations for little girls around their age?
NH: These young ages are the years where kids are super easy to shop for. It's very easy to find out what they're interested in, Frozen, Paw Patrol, etc., and then have fun with it. That's my recommendation: have fun shopping for what they love because at this young age, they enjoy every gift in such a big way. This phase doesn't last forever, so enjoy these moments as much as possible.
