An excellent resource for gifts, Lille is at its best for when you need a special occasion present (and for those about to receive: they do have a registry). Engagements, births, housewarmings, big birthdays and weddings could all be covered here. We like the seaweed tray ($180.) pictured above (one of several - all beautiful) and the duck egg lacquered pencil box (also above,$55) is part of one of our favorite site sections, the decorative boxes.
