Last week Sabrina took her three boys to go visit Santa in Union Square. The city is so festive and cheery this time of year, so it’s always a must to go see all the new decorations. Of course with Santa in the agenda, the twins were definitely on board. They stopped inside the Westin Saint Francis to get a view of the square. That tree was enormous! And with a birds eye view of the festivities below, Alex and James were starry eyed with excitement.
Inside the Westin was a beautiful tree so they stopped to scope out the ornaments and pick a favorite. But the real favorite was their visit with Santa. We think William will definitely grow to be a calm, cool, and collected little dude, since he’s the only one posing for the photo! No matter the photo, it’s always the memories we keep forever. Thanks to Macy’s Santaland!
Our final group of employee wish lists come from H!L friends near and far. Iain and Hamad always send festive gifts to our San Francisco team, and Sabrina is always sure to send an extra holiday surprise to the two based in London. They’re all wishing big this year!
Iain’s ideal wish list items include quite a fabulous investment. He’s dreaming of his holiday in a new home in Northern Italy, some furry friends to keep him company, and some cozy accessories in the winter months. Sounds dreamy!
1. Italian Castle 2. Irish Wolfhounds 3. Alpaca Bed Socks
Hamad is also dreaming of traveling the world and bringing along some essentials for the trip. We might have to join him on his journey to the most beautiful places on the globe.
1. A trip (first class) around the world 2. Tom Ford Fragrance 3. Smythson Soho Diary
Sabrina is wishing bright this year! Her colorful top three include some cozy accessories for hanging around home with her kids. She has great taste for bright colors and bold patterns so her wish list items definitely compliment her style.

This second to last wish list comes from H!L employees Laura, Leslie, and Lyndsey. If you haven’t noticed by now, we have 5 “L” names in the same office space, but these lovely ladies each have their own charm.
Laura has been a huge help to us this past summer and holiday season. She has an infectious laugh and we adore her sense of humor. Her wish list items definitely suit her lively personality, and we want to come along for the ride!
1. Sidecar Motorcycle (to fit her dog Buzz!) 2. Free People Hat 3. Cricket Trailer
Leslie’s love for Santa Barbara must have influenced her top three this year. She’s always willing to dish out great recipes and has excellent taste. Her wish list items are big and small, and we really do want them all!
1. Handmade Bread Board 2. Crème de Violette 3. A Yurt in Santa Barbara
Lyndsey is wishing in white this year. Her top three items will keep her company – and keep her cozy – with a little bling to highlight her bright style and hilarious personality.

Our annual Hello!Lucky employee holiday party was a big success! We try to get creative with our gift-giving and this year we did just that – got creative! Everyone handmade each of their gifts and we exchanged them at Lyndsey’s Twin Peaks apartment above the glowing city lights. We knew everyone had hidden talents but we were blown away with the final product! All our employees went above and beyond and the night was one to remember.
Jon, our house brewer, brewed a winter beer and even created his own labels! Heather also made up a special batch of pumpkin liqueur – and it was delicious with all the treats from the night! Kelly C. made adorable s’more kits, and Lyndsey made homemade cookie butter! Stewey made his famous Stewey’s Cheweys and also his famous knit coasters! (Did you see them on the Huffington Post?) Holly made amazing snow globes, James tied some awesome rope door stops, and Shayna handmade her winter scented candles!
Laura made gorgeous pine wreathes and Lillian sewed individual cocktail napkins. Below you can see Lia’s adorable felt houses, all lit up with mini lights. It’s the perfect decor!
Christina got crafty with her mini terrariums, and spruced them up with some festive holiday deer! The room was overflowing with holiday spirit, and everyone couldn’t wait to exchange.
Even more delicious snacks from Eunice and Sabrina’s holiday cookies, and Leslie made homemade granola in these sweet little jars.
Each person brought five gifts and each person left with five. As the night went on, surprise Karaoke evolved and we all had a grand ol’ time.
Thanks Lyndsey for hosting and the entire HL crew for celebrating such a wonderful year! Here’s to 2013!
