SPONSORED ROAM, the design-forward shop in Uptown, is having its Holiday Event, Dec. 6. Many people mention ROAM along with shops from New York, Stockholm, and London. So it's a wonderful surprise when people learn ROAM is locally-owned. It's the go-to shop for creative gifts inspired by designers from all over the world. There's a little unique something for everyone. The party planner will love all the necessary accessories to throw an amazing event. Modern serving utensils by Blomus—simple olive spoons, small dip spoons, and snack forks—the ones that are easily forgotten. No running into the kitchen this season and grabbing an everyday spoon! For the person who has yet to become an expert party hostess, there are great Wine and Cheese Kits to help! The Modern Twist silicone placements are so smart and cool. There are also placemats with dry-erase markers designed for children. With themes such as "Farm to Table" and "Alphabet and Animals," these are ideal for travel and mealtime activities. They have a non-porous, germ-free surface and are free of BPA, lead, latex, phthalates, and other harsh chemicals.
Ten-foot iPhone cords (why did this invention take so long?!) work for 3rd and 4th generation iPhones and come in many colors. No more attachment to the wall socket! All these gifts are priced under $30. It's difficult to leave without a little something for yourself—especially when you've been nice all year.
