Not sure what to get your best friend, quirky aunt or teenage niece? Accessories are one of the best, budget-friendly but luxe, ways to show someone you care.
Whether you’ve known her since grade school, college or later in life – your best friend is your rock. She is your trusted confidante, the one who knows how to make you laugh at life when you just want to cry and totally gets your weird sense of humor. Don’t short change her when it comes to the holidays.
The Mini Bag is the most popular and utilitarian bag style you could own right now. Large enough to work as a great carry-on or even a weekender bag it quickly becomes the go-to bag for every day. Cross-body design makes it perfect for any kind of lifestyle.
A fold-over clutch in jewel tones is another great choice, best for special occasions. Pick one up in a leather jewel tone gives every outfit a pop of color and cheer.
Think about it. A cashmere scarf is a lot like your best friend. Warm, comforting, and there for you. Pick one up in a flattering color and that scarf will remind her of you each time she stays warm.
For the Teen Set
Jeweled hairbands are having a moment. Get Gatsby and give your teen a stunning hair accessory that will bring her lots of glitz and glamour through to the next year.
Wristlets are fun.Pack light while still having room to carry everything they need. Styles in every color, texture and material are widely available so personalizing one to the teen in your life is beyond easy.
Leather is the hottest trend going right now. Keep her warm this winter with a pair of leather mittens. Guaranteed to be a set that she won’t balk at wearing to the bus stop, school function or out with friends.
Offices are notoriously chilly. The infinity scarf will keep her warm and looking stylish. In many styles, colors, prints and fabrics you can find a price point that works for you and a look that is great on her.
The ear cuff might not be your first pick but it is eye-catching, can be worn day or night and add a hint of shimmer and verve to an otherwise mundane look. Out of the office it is even more eye-catching.
Have some fun and give her the hashtag necklace. Customize the tagline from CEO to a private office joke in silver or gold. She’ll smile each time she wears it.
The Quirky Aunt
Wrap up a set of fingerless leopard gloves in cashmere for her or snag a glimmering bib necklace that makes a real statement. Each one can show off a facet of your aunt’s personality that will let her shine. A sweater with the saying, “Merci” is a small nod for all the times she has been there for you.
