Really Last Minute Holiday Gifts, Right This Way
December 23, 2011
We’re really burning the proverbial midnight oil here but it’s likely fair to assume that some people may still need last minute ideas. Hey, Hanukkah still has another five nights under its Menorah, so here’s a collage of gifts, priced under $100, you know, short of that frivolously fantastic clutch, front row center, clad in charms. $1500 for a change clutch will likely leave you with just that: change, so call it wishful thinking and take a look around. Starting at top left I give you a polka dot piggy butter plate a la Jonathan Adler for the kitchen dwellers you know. A mustache shaped cork screw to ensure that every bottle of wine opened from this day forward is done with a hairy upper lip in mind. A Lanvin pen (at left) and an orange Smythson notebook (at right) for the writers who like fashion in your life. After all, orange is big for spring and it’s the genuine thought that counts. A Mimosa scented Diptyque candle or conversely Hermes perfume to softly suggest the gift receiver in question stop drinking and take a shower, or a Pop Phone (top left) for the sweet hypochondriac, trying to eliminate any and all radioactive interaction. It will, at the very least double as the perfect fashion week accessory. Warby Parker sunglasses are the gift that gives back, and motorcycle gloves on sale at Intermix will make texting and keeping hand palms warm pretty stinking easy. On the jewelry front: Pamela Love‘s skull necklace (top right) because ironic as it is, every girl these days wants to jump on the Dias Muertas train, most particularly if it’s bronzed. Some Derek Forreal pinky rings from the MR DANNIJO collaboration and finally to its left: a bone ring by Jennifer Fisher.
Now, one final and very stealthy happy holidays to all: happy stealthy holidays.
