It's no longer a surprise to me when I can compile these Gift Guides for Her within 30 minutes, while the Gift Guides for Him take me a couple of days. The fact that the majority of these items have been sitting in my Hukkster account makes it that much easier for me to browse through to find things that I want to include in my Gift Guides. We've come quite a way from gifts that costs $500+, but there is still a ways left to go. My goal is to make it down to gifts below $25 before Christmas comes around so I've got my gears spinning for the challenge! There's only 17 days left till the big day and I'm getting more and more excited as the time passes. The point where I'm no longer motivated to study, but if I want that paper that says I've graduated, on the well oiled grey matter must go.
1. Thea Mini Fold-Over Cross-Body - Tory Burch | $225.00
One can never have enough cross-body bags. Not only are they efficient since your hands can be free to do and hold other things, but there are so many different designs available. I liked how this one can be folded over so that when you need more room it can be opened up larger. I'm not usually one for pink either, but this shade isn't too bright or offensive and is extremely feminine without screaming Barbie.
2. Ombre Dustls Coat - FCUK | $298.00
Ombre doesn't have to be just on the head. I really liked how the arms of this coat fade from black to red in a really subtle gradient that doesn't scream ombre. Because the shade of red isn't offendingly bright, the jewel tones are perfect for this moodier time of the year. It also will match perfectly with your Christmas decor, if you want to that is. The cocoon silhouette is also extremely popular this year so this coat would be perfect for your ever stylish lady!
3. Sweetie Bracelet - Links of London | $275.00
I'm not a proponent for charm or link bracelets, but I really like the look of this bracelet worn on its own. If you're usually in a pinch as to what to get your lady on other special occasions, you can set yourself up nicely by adding to her collection of charms each time around. Unlike other charm bracelets, the ones by Links of London may cost you quite a penny, so if any girl is able to rock out a wrist full of them, she is quite the lucky one.
4. Hudson Mini Moto Bag - Rebecca Minkoff (ShopBop) |
I didn't realize that I had included two bags in this Gift Guide until I got to the part of writing up each description. It's perfect how opposite these two bags are from each other. While one is sweet and simple, the other is edgy and boxy. I also really liked how the sealing along the edges of this bag are a completely different color than the bag itself. You don't usually see this in most bag designs but it gives it a really pretty and unexpected pop of color.
5. Slim Signature Blouse - Equipment (ShopBop) | $278.00
Equipment never fails to provide fantastic silk blouses and this little number is exactly what is needed for the winter season. The gold polka-dots brightens up a typical black blouse so you don't have to wear as much jewelry for your outfit to appear complete. I actually loved the entire outfit that the model is wearing, including the red heels. Because the blouse itself is already the statement piece, a simple pair of strappy heels really helps to pull the look together without detracting attention from the top.
