Today happens to be the birthday of a very special man, Ted Kennedy Watson. I can’t remember exactly when I first met Ted, but I feel as though I have known him forever. His warm, gentle style is reminiscent of another era, when people were kind, considerate and well mannered. He doesn’t live life in the fast lane, but chooses to savor every moment of his day. That’s not to say this man isn’t busy. He runs the incredibly, amazing store Watson Kennedy
in Seattle, Washington. Watson Kennedy has become an industry icon for destination shopping for those in the know. Ted opened his first Watson Kennedy Fine Living
, on his 35th birthday in 1998, so if you do the math you can quickly surmise this is a big birthday Ted is celebrating.
Ted’s store is an extension of the well curated life he has created for himself. When I saw him at Design Blogger’s Conference
last March in Los Angeles, he gave out precious little goodie bags to his friends. Let me tell you, that was the best little treat bag anyone has ever given me! Ted knew exactly what was needed to make my trip special.
Ted will personally choose and ship gifts from Watson Kennedy for anyone on your list during the holidays and year round. I can attest that whatever anyone receives from Watson Kennedy will be treasured. Ted carefully choses the lines he carries in his shop, so every gift from Watson Kennedy is a thoughtful gift!
Visit his website and see all the fabulous things he has curated for your shopping pleasure. I must tell you the best way to shop with Watson Kennedy is to simply give Ted a price range and let him chose something for you.
