Best Gifts for Her
Finally, a gift guide that I had -no- trouble putting together! Whether it's for a sister, a girlfriend, or a best friend, women are incredibly easy to shop for. Again, here are some ideas, plus a few tips on how to adapt to fit your budget.
Personalized stationery is one of those things that can completely class up that thank you note. Want your parents to really think that you have it together? Write a thank you note, on your own custom stationery! As always, I love Rifle for this kind of thing. A bit of a splurge, but still the champion of candles, Diptyque. Everyone loves candles, and this is a good holiday to splash out a little. Also in home decor, I love this light box. It's not to expensive, and customizeble, so you can switch it out for the season.
A few more gifts...I love this SMEG toaster. I love all the SMEG appliances. I like the retro feel and colors, and a toaster isn't the kind of thing that you buy yourself. Also in the field of things-you-don't-buy-yourself...a new fancy bike. Again, keeping with the retro feel, but classy. This one is spendy, but you can find a retro-look bike at most major retailers now. Another nice gift is a custom map from Mapful. Whether it's where you two met, or your hometown, Mapiful's prints look gorgeous. Another gift that I thought would be thoughtful is a recipe tin, but with a few of the recipe cards already filled out. Maybe old family traditions?
Finally, the wearables. I love a good fashion piece,and I picked out three practical ones that anyone will want. First is the Jacobs Watch from Marc Jacobs. It's classic, with a unique rounded swuare design, and comes in every color imaginable. I'm fairly partial to the bright green. Next is a nice pyjama set. I like this one from LL Bean because it's cozy but breatheable. Finally....my one really luxe item on this list. If you're really going to splurge on her...try the Chloe Small Drew. It's gorgeous, comes in every color imaginable, and looks extremely beautiful dressed up or down.
