Most of the holiday season is spent thinking about, planning, and executing the difficult gift-giving quest we embark on for everyone special in our lives. Each gift is particular to what friend we’re giving it to, but most of us don’t have the luxury of time to brainstorm up the perfect gift, let alone find it. So what are we to do?
As far as women and our lady friends go, we can at least rely on our own desires to help decipher what our fellow females might want this holiday season. Aside from shopping for gifts, most of us are shopping for the perfect holiday ensembles. Not only do we search for the perfect jewel-toned sweater for Christmas Day or that flashy cocktail dress for New Years, but we keep our eyes out for what we’d like to grab once the post-holiday deals settle in, the stuff we’d like to have for the rest of the year. So why not start there?
You don’t have to go as far as buying an entire outfit for a friend, but think about what makes the perfect outfit? Fashion Accessories.
Accessories allow any outfit to see multiple, even infinite, incarnations and stretch the life of our favorite pieces. Scarves, handbags, clutches, bangles, earrings, cuffs, necklaces of every shape and size… so why not put together a holiday gift bag of such outfit-changing tools?
But there are so many different styles to choose from… which would be best? Here is where the powers of your perception come in. What does your sister like to wear? Vintage-inspired DIY ensembles? Then a print scarf, salvage messenger bag and a chunky bracelet would fit right into her wardrobe. Or what about your lunch-buddy from work? Is she sophisticated and put-together? Then perhaps a jewel-toned clutch, silver bib necklace and a leopard print wrap-around sound like a few things she’d find useful.
Giving little, individual things, is always nice. Any gift is meaningful. But showing just how much you pay attention to your close friends’ senses of style is sure to warm their hearts, and is probably part of their goal when they put themselves together every morning. It’s always nice to have more accessories, especially ones that suit our personality, and it’s always touching when a friend notices our tastes (and helps us look fabulous all year round, of course). Such accessories are useful no matter what style suits you, it’s in the print, color, and overall combination that counts. Your friends can wear their scarf on a daily basis, save that crystal necklace for New Years and bring their clutch out for dinner, or any combination that suits them. Same goes for get-togethers, birthdays, going-away parties, you name it. Think about what you yourself would like for the holidays and apply that to your lady friends, you’ll be sure to find the ticket to holiday gift-giving success.
