Everyone likes a present. We can all agree on that, right? At BLANC, on US1 in Coral Gables, there's a gift for everyone in your life from baby to abuela. BLANC has, "a little bit of everything," says owner Paola Reyes. There are reusable juice boxes for the tots, cashmere blankets for the kids, delicious smelling candles, dinnerware with flare, colorful travel and office accessories and more. Even the hard to shop for dudes in your life are covered - they have a corner dedicated to gifts for men like snakeskin flasks and fancy poker sets.
The store is full of well-styled vignettes and the space is light and open, the tulip tables are set as if a fancy dinner party is just about to start. At the center of the store is a design blog-worthy living room. Lucky for you, the BLANC team can be enlisted as interior designers to make your living room look just as stylish.
With Mother's Day around the corner, now is the perfect time to visit BLANC, right on US1's border between Coral Gables and South Miami. May we recommend something from the collection of silver, the tea set perhaps? Go ahead, treat yo momma right.
