All about Drees

Ruthann’s Favorite Gifts

Every year I compile a list of the “Favorites of Drees” that we have carefully chosen to help make your gift-giving a little easier and more inspired. This year’s line-up includes exquisite, well-made products that are meant to be enjoyed and treasured for many years. And we have something for everyone on your list, in every price range from $10 – $300.

For her, from 80 Acres, this sensuous body balm is a blend of olive and jojoba oils, beeswax and vitamin E rich in natural antioxidants and easily absorbed into the skin to deeply nourish and protect. Handcrafted from the purest botanical ingredients and available in three fabulous scents including Verde, Lavender and Blood Orange. Blood Orange made the October “O” list.

Drees’ jewelry is for the “not” so jewelry store person… we love the
softer, more textural pieces with unusual finishes and patina that evoke age, although not antique. This special piece shown here is made with a pave of champagne diamonds in a darkened setting, strung on a midnight blue mystic spinel gemstone strand.

This beautiful, decorative glass Hand Soap bottle from Cucina is a limited edition created exclusively for their 10th anniversary. Specially designed for use in the kitchen, Cucina Purifying Hand Soap contains extra virgin olive oil and other olive derivates with purifying properties. A subtle blend of coriander seeds and olive wood, this sophisticated fragrance is both aromatic and slightly woody.

A favorite of mine for many years, the Vermont Evergreens from Simon Pearce uniquely capture the majesty and wonder of nature. If you’ve been searching for a glittering and unforgettable piece to complete your holiday décor, look no further. The Vermont Evergreens are stunning, hand-blown decorations that will have you singing carols the moment you place them on your mantel.

This hand-blown Cavendish Rose Bowl is special in every way. Its
timeless elegance has remained a Simon Pearce favorite for nearly 35 years. Delicate yet durable, Simon Pearce vases are meticulously handcrafted from premium, lead-free glass for daily use and enjoyment year-round.

For him, the Ascutney Double Old Fashioned Gift Set from Simon Pearce is clean and classic. Mount Ascutney is southern Vermont’s only monadnock, or lone mountain, and the inspiration for the Ascutney Barware. Like its natural namesake, this collection is set apart by its clean, simple lines and majestic curves for everyday functionality.

Also for him, what could be better than our most comfortable Lowell chair and ottoman? You have to come and sit in this one! Either off our floor, or made to order so he’ll have something to look forward to in the New Year.

This Italian platter is absolutely wonderful in almost any setting. The aged pattern is soft in hue, and the size is great for holiday serving.

And don’t forget teachers, neighbors and co-workers. We have
delicious wonderful Olive Oil from McEvoy as well as fabulous Fig Compote and exquisite chocolates.

The list of our Bests goes on…. Call, email or visit us for personalized assistance with the best gifts that your friends and family will remember for years to come.  In the Drees tradition, we make each gift “a present,” and also will ship to your friends and family in far-away places.

    I was really hoping to do some shopping from your website. I moved from Olympia six years ago and really miss coming in and seeing what’s new and just enjoying the beautiful ambiance you create in Drees.
    I hope some day I will be able to shop your store online.
    Happy Holiday!

    It’s in our long range plans. We will be beginning that discussion in the new year. Thanks for your encouragement!
