Tis the season! Whether you are looking for inspiration as to what to ask for this holiday season or you don’t know what to get the fashionista in your family, here are some great gifts to ask for or give this season.
For those of you who are not familiar with Birch Box, it is a monthly beauty box that features five personalize beauty samples to your door each month. I love the idea of giving a Birch Box subscription, because it is not something I would ordinarily purchase for myself but I think makes a great gift for any woman. I am not a subscriber, but one of my roommates received the subscription as a gift and loves the little surprises each month! It is also a great way to find out about different products and test out what you do and don’t like. You can order a year’s subscription for $110 or a monthly subscription for $10 a month!
I recently purchased this sweater and have fallen in love! It is the perfect sweater to give (or get!) this holiday. It’s warm, its stylish and its a classic sweater. The sweater is 100% merino wool and is not itchy at all. It runs on the bigger side, as it is a tunic length sweater and it has slits on the sides so it is roomy. Salena Gomez actually wore it and has it in both colors! I got the wheat melange color and its simply gorgeous. I got the wheat melange (left) color but am totally considering getting it in the dovestone melange as well. If you hopped on the suede trend this season there is also a very similar sweater called the Merino Pieced-Suede Sweater Tunic in navy. This sweater runs a bit smaller than the Merino wool sweater tunic because there are no slits at the side and the suede is not as a loose fit as the wool sweater. The merino wool sweaters are on sale for $177 and the suede sweater for $297. Both very nice and classic gifts!
This is a fabulous stocking stuffer or small gift for a friend or colleague! Its that time of year when we need to swap our 2015 calendars for 2016! I love love love fashion illustrations, so I will definitely be ordering this for myself! I just wish it had more room for writing on it, but its a great at a glance calendar. Each month features a fun fashion illustration of une femme by illustrator, artist and photographer Garance Doré.
Ringly combines fashion and smart phone technology into one. Its wearable technology as Ringly puts it! Ringly is connected to your phone by an the Ringly app that sends customized alerts for texts, calls, calendar, Facebook and more. The ring has up to four vibration patterns and a light up indicator with five color options. Ringly is perfect for the busiest fashionista in your life! It is compatible with iOS and Android and is available at Bloomingdales or online for $195.
Go retro chic with a Polaroid camera this season! Yep, polaroid cameras are back and not the Barbie polaroid camera you had when you were little. Polaroid cameras are great, because they take instant pictures and print them on directly from the camera on vintage-esque film. When I went to visit my friend from Paris, one of her roommates had one and they used it all the time when the went out and hung the photos from the semester on their fridge. I asked for one for Christmas (in light pink, of course!) The are available online, at Best Buy and are currently on sale at Urban Outfitters for $80 – link in title to the one at UO. They come in some fun colors as well as more basic ones. A Polaroid Camera is even great for doing an OOTD (outfit of the day) photo for each day!
I tried to pick some out of the box gifts instead of ordinary gifts like a hat and scarf, snow boots etc. They have a range of prices so they are great picks for anyone! Are any of these items on your holiday list? Let me know in the comments below!
