Here Comes the Easter Bunny …

Hippity-Hop! In just a few more weeks the Easter Bunny will be visiting your house! Have you made your wish list? Our team at Lifeguard Press has been working on theirs … and below are a few of their favorite items!

We are loving the favorite picks of the Lilly Pulitzer Diary, Thermal Mug, Sailor Bracelets and Umbrella. And, j’adore the giant poodle eraser from Jonathan Adler! (You must check out the giant erasers in shapes of a whale, elephant and turtle, too!) The Jonathan Adler highlighters are always a superstar and will go quite colorfully with the Easter Eggs. And … check out the little “baskets” made out of ice cream cones, Jelly Belly jelly beans and licorice. Genius!

But, are you looking for an Easter basket, too? Want to do something totally different? We are loving these ideas …

What about filling a Jonathan Adler laptop bag or Lilly Pulitzer lunch box with goodies? It’s the “basket” they’ll want to use all year! Or, we think the Lilly Pulitzer ice bucket would make the ultimate “basket.” Who wouldn’t want this fabulous gift filled with Peeps?! (Best part? The ice bucket can be personalized!) Or, want a basket that is already gift filled and gift wrapped? Check out the new Lilly Pulitzer bath set – filled with Lilly Pulitzer bubble bath, mit, fizzie, and even a pink rubber ducky! Love!

Happy Easter from all of us at Lifeguard Press!

‘Tis the season!

Final Days of the Jonathan Adler Summer Lovin’ Contest

We hope you all enjoyed your weekend and are looking forward to the approaching 4th of July Holiday! This morning we were enjoying our morning coffee (in our Greek Key Thermal Mugs), planning our 4th of the July cookout, while watching our new brand Dylan’s Candy Bar on The Early Show giving tips on adding some festive flair to our barbeque! Speaking of festive flair: today only Jonathan Adler’s Paper Lanterns will be on sale. These are must have for your 4th of July celebration!

We wanted to commend you all on your brilliant efforts on Friday’s question! We hope it didn’t make you want to throw a few pots! In 2006, what global icon did Jonathan Adler teach to throw a pot? The one and only Oprah!!

Jonathan Adler was featured on the episode of Oprah “Loving What They Do”. Jonathan shared with Oprah that he has one overall intention behind everything he designs. “I feel your home should make you happy,” he says. “The real intention is to make stuff that’s very personal, very idiosyncratic, and very uplifting.” Doesn’t that give you the motivation to redecorate!? We know of a picture frame that would be perfect in your redecorating…

What colors make up our Jonathan Adler Square Pegs Picture Frame?
