One of the most luxurious items on the list, this cape is perfect for cool days ahead. With a cashmere body and fur collar, it is cozy and soft — not to mention warm. The deep burgundy is ideal for holiday gatherings but the cape ($495) is also avaliable in brown, camel, navy, grey, oatmeal and red.
Consider delivering this gift early so it can be used by its new owner for all her holiday parties. Whether in gold, silver, black or red, these bags ($138 each) will elevate any outfit and act as the perfect accessory. In addition to the gold ring handle, there is a detachable leather shoulder strap.
Dresses to Dream About
Stunning photos of masterpieces designed by Christian Siriano fill the glossy pages of this coffee table book. From sketches to the final product, the photos offer a behind-the-scenes look at the artist’s work. The book ($45) is as lovely inside as it is out and any fashionista will be thrilled to dream about donning (or creating) these dresses.
Save the Duck vest
Save the Duck is an ethical company that produces products that are 100% animal free. The jackets and vests feel like they are filled with down, meaning they are comfortable and warm. The material is also breathable and lightweight. Stay warm and stylish in their selection of vests ($158-$208) and jackets ($248).
Most well known for their beaded bracelets, Chan Luu is a line of boho-chic accessories that are appropriate for gals of all ages. This handcrafted chiffon and sequins tassel necklace ($55) is far from your traditional string of pearls. A contemporary girl can pair this with anything from a white t-shirt to a little black dress.
The same brand as the bags above, these wallets ($98 each) will keep any girl organized. With exterior zip pockets, card slots and bill pockets, there is room for everything from your ID and small bills to your iPhone (fits an iPhone 6). Choose from gold, black, red, tan and taupe.
Faux fur vest
In a rich, deep red, this faux fur vest ($145) can be anyone’s go-to for festive events. We’d love to cozy up in this vest all winter long! Oh wait, we are supposed to be shopping for our friends, aren’t we?
In addition to a cashmere wrap, a water bottle ($35) makes a great gift for travelers. S’well is a brand we have grown to love as their water bottles keep things both warm and cold for a long time. The new Traveler Collection features bottles with a wider lip and easier-to-grip shape. It can be filled with water or coffee and taken anywhere from work to the park.
During the season of down jackets and sweaters, it’s nice to have the option for a lighter layer. This jacket ($98) looks chic paired with a simple top and jeans, as shown below. The open front and detailed finishes give this piece an effortlessly cool look.
CV Designs updates the classic hoop by combining leather and metal. Understated but elegant, this is a pair of earrings ($35) that can be worn every day — or night. Take your pick of one of four colors, and decide what will best suit the fashion girl on your list.
Suede trench coat
Stay stylish all season long in this suede trench coat. Use this as the final layer to a casual jeans-and-t-shirt look or dress it up with an all-black ensemble for a night out. While we are partial to the grey, the coat ($188) also comes in blush, grey and navy. It is a piece even the most discerning of fashionistas will love.
Slip this into someone’s stocking to make their holiday extra bright! We truly love how delicate this necklace ($55) is — one small star hangs on the gold-filled chain. We can only bet you know someone who would love this as much as we do!
Cashmere travel wraps
If the holidays have you in transit — or even if they don’t — stay cozy even while on the go with a White Warren Wraps cashmere travel wrap. Available in solids, multi-colors and patterns, this will be your go-to accessory all winter long. Prices range from $298 to $352.
The ultimate fashion accessories, hats have made a comeback in a big way. Top off any outfit with one of the many styles and shapes. Make a statement with cheetah print, or opt for something more subtle with a chic burgundy. Hats of different colors, shapes and prices ($110-$278) are waiting for you!
True arm candy, these bracelets are any easy gift. In black and silver, the cuff bracelet ($35) is made to look like many bangles layered together, without the clinking and clanking that often accompanies them!
Sunglasses and eyewear are one of the most understated fashion accessories that we can’t help but love. If you are like us, you are in need for a place to store your eyewear in style. The Oyo Box ($135) is handcrafted and doubles as storage and decor!
Rounding out the list, we have a sweet stocking stuffer. Flavored with vanilla, salted honey, seeds and bourbon, these honeys are $9 each. The artisan pure raw honey is a luxury of another sort that promises to bring flavor and sweetness to anything from a cheese plate to a piece of toast.
