Shopping cart

What’s in our founder’s Christmas basket?

Over the past few weeks, we’ve gotten all of our holiday shopping inspiration from asking Design Milk’s favorite designers and creatives what they’re giving as gifts this holiday season. We enjoyed peeking inside their baskets so much that we couldn’t resist asking our own Design Milk team to share their picks as well! Today’s holiday shopping partner needs no introduction — it’s our own founder, editor and creative director, Jaime Derringer!

Home Cookware by Le Creuset

“My daughter started to take an interest in baking and cooking (thanks to our Netflix obsession with Sugar Rush), so we tried to find kitchen items suitable for the whole family. I love this baking set child friendly – it’s not too Fisher-Price and you know the quality is good since it’s made by Le Creuset. The only question now is… what to do!?”
