Holiday Gift Guide
Published on December 8, 2016
You’ve made your list. You’ve checked it twice….And you still have a few you can’t cross off the list yet. With only 16 days until Christmas Eve, you’re feeling the heat. But never fear! Before you stress eat all of the Christmas cookies and eggnog, we have a guide to help you find the perfect gift for everyone on your list. Wrap up some of these gems and, before you know it, Santa himself will be hiring you to be his personal shopper.

For the trendsetter: She sees the new trends coming before Vogue does. So we’re betting she’ll know that collars are all the rage and fully rock this one. You can also get her a subscription to Birchbox, which will send her samples of the hottest beauty products every month, or an adorable mini hot sauce to keep in her bag (swag) for all of her instagrammable brunches.
For the homebody: A pair of classic diamond studs for the one on your list who you can find curled up reading a classic on Friday nights. Make her relaxing nights in even more perfect with a subscription to Art of Tea (she’ll get a different kind of tea delivered to her door every month!), a heated throw (yes—that is a real thing) or a candle that smells like her home state.
For the animal lover: For your loved one who won’t stop talking about how their cat was being soooooo cute this morning, this stunning sapphire and diamond cat ring will leave them speechless. We also love this charming hand-crafted Dog Lover soap and these personalized pet ornaments (featured on Oprah’s Favorite Things!). Pick one that looks like your favorite furry friend (they come in all breeds—from basset hound to labradoodle) and get it engraved.
For the fitness guru: These studs from our Princess Flower Collection are perfect for your friend who’s always at the gym. They’re minimal and versatile enough to go from the boardroom to the yoga studio. But beware…they might outshine that gold medal she’s training for in that marathon. We also love the idea of treating her to a month unlimited at her favorite workout studio or to one of these S’well waterbottles to stay hydrated in and out of the gym. They keep beverages cold for 24 hours and hot for 12. PS: The largest size holds a full bottle of wine. You know…because antioxidants…
For the classy gent: We love these cufflinks because no true gentleman’s wardrobe is complete without a pair (and let’s be honest…diamonds don’t have to just be a girl’s best friend.) Plus, they’ll look great on him as he sips his favorite scotch from these classic monogrammed scotch glasses. These leather touchscreen gloves are also a win.
And, finally, for the friend who has everything-We all know that person who has it all. . . (And hooray for you if you are that person!) Even if they have everything, we are willing to bet they probably don’t have anything like this striking and unique diamond and enamel horse cuff. You can also give them an experience they won’t forget. A foodie? Hire a chef to come to their home to cook a meal. A car enthusiast? Give them a day driving a racecar! Or, for a gift that goes straight to the heart, donate to a charity in their honor.
Happy shopping and Happy Holidays!
