Guys, Gabi’s back! Just for December (but hopefully more in 2014?!), we’ve got her talking stylish holiday living. Welcome her back in the comments…
While I’m typically the categorized and listed-in-order-of-importance holiday wish list-type, I literally cannot think of one thing that I want – let alone really, really want – this year.
It seems I’ve reached my max asks. I have the record player I asked for last year, I’m going to London in January, and I’m the proud owner of some sweet leather jeggings. My life is perfect, basically.
Got a similarly lucky lady in your life? Great! But the question lurks: what will you get her this holiday season?
Simple. The little luxuries she’d would rather have someone give her than have to buy herself.
I’ve become fully dependent on an air purifier and a large collection of candles to keep from compulsively cleaning my musty apartment. While I did manage to buy a TON of candles at Target for about $20, I know deep down that I could spend that much on one candle that would do a better job and probably last longer. Just think, YOU could be the game-changer for my candle collection.
For all the talk about the death of print, my love of a magazine subscription says otherwise. And it’s a great gift-that-keeps-on-giving present. Even cooler? Magazines that you can’t pick up at the news stand. Think semi-annual mags - like The Gentlewoman above - or those cartoonishly large ones that V puts out, or even collectible ones from before she was born (like Cosmopolitan…before it was required to have the word “sex” in 3” letters on the cover).
I’m far too dependent upon perfume samples for my daily scent, thanks to an adolescence spent cruising department store beauty counters, mingled with a fear of commitment I should probably analyze further. Not to mention the steep prices of all the scents that I like…which are mostly for the cool bottle anyway. Take the decision out of my hands, and I might actually, finally, find my signature scent.
What’s great about gifts like these is that every girl needs ‘em, and they are really easy to tailor to a specific person. For every Diptyque/Elle/Clinique Happy girl there is a Voluspa/Marie Claire/Marc Jacobs Daisy and so on.
And I should mention: you can find great options in any holiday shopping budget. You’re NOT required to shell out $XX (or $XXX) ((or $X,XXX)) if that’s not what you can afford. Any girl that tells you differently deserves a very merry boot to the curb.
