Oh, joy to the world, Christmas is swiftly approaching… and so is the holiday stress. While you are “nestled” in your bed this month, Christmas lists and not sugarplums are probably dancing in your head. And, if you have a special fashionista in your life, buying the perfect gift for her can be a daunting task. Or, if you are someone that is passionate about being fashionable, receiving a “wearable” gift is a near impossibility. Well, don’t worry because our little Sloan elves have created the perfect gift-buying guide that will show you what to give or what you should ask for, so everyone can give and receive with a smile this year.
Gifts at $100 & Under
With all the upcoming holiday deals and shopping events this month, we will be overwhelmed with sales. However, many of these sales items are last year’s trends or one-wear only fabrics. However, just because she is a trendsetter, doesn’t mean you have to break the bank. Stuff her stocking with Hollywood’s double stick tape and Bellissima’s tortoise shell jewelry or place a Michael Stars t-shirt and a pair of Yosi Samara ballet flats under the tree and make her holiday extra special.
Gifts at $200 & Under
Let’s up the ante a bit, shall we? We have a few choices in our $200 and under category, however it consists mostly of shoes. Fortunately, you know her size so you can’t go wrong in the right fit. And, let’s not kid ourselves; shoes are a girl’s best friend. Don’t believe me…go look in her closet. So, whether it’s a Michael Kors gray suede bootie or a House of Harlow studded moccasin, you’re sure to please her inner Carrie Bradshaw this year!
Gifts at $300 & Under
Baby it’s cold outside and nothing will warm her heart faster than winter apparel! Our $300 and under choices are some of our personal favorites as they are perfect fashion staples that will remain in style throughout the years. Put a bow on a pair of Matt Bernson shearling boots which will survive in any harsh winter weather conditions. Or, give your globetrotter a White + Warren travel cashmere wrap and it will become her must-have travel accessory for years to come. Whatever gift you chose in this category, it will guarantee you a kiss under the mistletoe.
Gifts at $500 & Under
If you really want to make her holiday wishes come true, the $500 and under items will suit any fashion diva’s taste. Let her strut her stuff in the style she so craves by giving her a pair of Elizabeth and James python pointed-toe booties or send her out into the snow with an Alice and Olivia fur coat. Not only will she be warm, she will look fabulous doing so.
Gifts at $500 & Over
Okay, she is ultra chic, speaks fluent fashion, and you want to make her swoon. Well, here are our $500 and over choices that scream splurge and will please even the most finicky fashionista. For a woman with unique taste, try giving her a Federico necklace whose high price tag means only a few other will possess the divine piece. Or, wrap up an Haute Hippie rabbit fur blazer for a gift that is just extravagant enough to please the luxe in her.
