Asian cultures love giving gifts, and Hilton Hotels has come up with a lovely one to celebrate the first anniversary of its Huanying program for guests from China. Designer Vivienne Tam has created the Water Dragon slippers (for people), and, while it's a limited edition, some will be made available to purchase online; $28, at hiltontohome.com (while supplies last).

ROCK ROCKS KOHL'S
Hipster denim lovers like Zoe Saldana, Kelly Bensimon and Molly Sims have been fans of Rock & Republic for some time, and now we ordinary mortals can grab a piece of the action. The brand just launched a new jewelry collection, with a suitably dark, sexy vibe that's part Goth, part boho chic -- picture skull earrings, dagger pendants, hunks of turquoise and tassels, accessibly priced at $12 to $38; Rock on at Kohl's stores and kohls.com.
