Holiday Shopping: What to Get for…

We say we won’t save our holiday shopping for last-minute, but December creeps up on us faster than we remember. For those of us about to begin shopping, we’ve put together the best gift ideas for everyone on your list.

Your Sister

The one who knows you better than you know yourself deserves a gift that speaks from the heart. A birthstone ring or a necklace with her astrological sign show you remember the little details and value your relationship. If that’s a little too hippie for her, consider a face mask or mini lipstick set.

Of course, no woman has ever complained about getting a purse. and a chain strap shoulder bag, like this Mulberry shoulder bag, is the perfect addition to her going out collection. Its leather exterior and rose gold hardware are timeless features, while a turn-lock key closure and suede interior add an additional design. Spoil her with a high end purse resale that shows your appreciation.

Your BFF

Let your friend know how much they mean to you with a gift for her to pamper herself this winter season. A selfcare kit is a great gift that you can put together on your own.

Stock the bag with bath bombs, bath soaks, and face masks for her to indulge in an at home spa day. Add a bottle of her favourite wine and she’s ready for a long winter night.

Your Parents

A matching set for the parents is a whimsical gift they’re sure to love. There’s no doubt your parents constantly compliment you on your great style, so why not give them something to coordinate?

My own parents recently commented on a new sweater I bought, so it just made sense that they should both get one too. Think how adorable they’ll look in their coordinating pieces—plus, they’ll love humble bragging to all their friends about the great thoughtful gift their kid bought them.

Your S/O

Buying for your S/O—regardless of how long you’ve been dating—can feel like a challenge. What do they already have? What gift speaks to them as a person and fits into your relationship?

A watch is timeless gift that’s both a great people pleaser and matches everyone’s style. You can never go wrong with a classic leather band and simple white-gold face. If they’re a watch aficionado, look for a pattern or type that don’t have already to add to their collection. 

Your Work BFF

Your work BFF knows things you haven’t told anyone else: They deserve a gift that emphasizes the deep bonds of your work friendship.

A gold bracelet says all of that without breaking the limit on coworker presents. It’s charming, cute, and looks great worn solo or paired with a watch.
