Statement/Scene – Life & Style For Chicago and Beyond
Just Another Holiday Gift Guide…
Posted on by
Yes. Christmas is approaching. There are some other holidays that involve gift giving/receiving on the horizon as well.
Because of all this, you’ve probably seen more than a few holiday gift guides in the past few weeks…but if you’re still scrambling to get your gifts in check, here’s just one addition to the ever-growing pile. And if you happen to be one of those responsible types who has already picked, bought and wrapped a gift for everyone on your list…well, there’s no reason you can’t start working on a holiday wish list of your own, right?
This season I’m coveting things that I’ll use over and over again: Statement necklaces that work with little black dresses and plain white tees, books that’ll keep me entertained and look great on a coffee table, the perfume that is clean enough to wear everyday but distinctive enough to become my signature scent. Those are the most sensible gifts you can give to yourself and to others. Need some inspiration? Click through for some of my picks.
Heated booties – God’s gift to your feet on a frigid winter day spendt indoors. I own these and am mildly obsessed. $40 at Nordstrom
every girl deserves a coffee table book that’s feminine, fashionable and decorative. $46.90 at Amazon
I get headaches from strong scents, but this candle is fine and subtle enough to flavor a room without overpowering. Buy it for your mom. Trust me on this. $60 at Diptyque
Buy this for your boyfriend…and steal splashes of it for yourself. This unisex scent works on anyone. $195 at Saks
Your polish-loving friend will pretty much die over this set. $78 at Sephora
This gift is two things: Functional and thoughtful. And – if you have it personalized – it’s pretty much non-returnable. $69.95 at Williams-Sonoma
Whether you wear this over tights and boots this season or with wedges during warmer days, this shirtdress is a classic. $117.80 at Shopbop
Every man needs a pair of pants that work for weekdays and weekend nights. These fit (no pun intended) pretty much any situation. $98 at Bonobos
The perfect statement necklace is sparkly, bold and perfect for virtually any outfit – thanks to the lack of color on this one, it’s completely versatile. $115 at J Crew
