2013 Women’s Gift Guide

I adore shopping for the special women in my life.  I try to gift luxurious and fun items that they would never buy for themselves, and below are my 2013 picks.  Enjoy and good luck!

1. Baggu Leather Pouches – These pouches come in 2 different sizes and are perfect for stashing your makeup or loose change. 

2. Poppin Monogrammed Notebook – Like many women, I am always in need of a notebook to jot down lists and ideas.  Here’s a super classy one that doesn’t cost big bucks.  

3. Madewell Orbit Bracelet – Adorable and affordable. 

4. Clare Vivier Monogrammed Keyring Tassel – I die for this personalized tassel but would never buy this for myself.  Boyfriend, are you reading this? 

5. Diptyque Candle – Give the king of all candles to the queen in your life. 

6. Chemex Coffee Maker – Pair this with her favorite coffee and you’ve got a winner. 

7. Maslo Anchored Necklace – This chic and modern necklace looks expensive but is only $42.  

8. Bunny Lamp – A unique piece befitting your interior deisgn-obsessed friends, the lamp’s light bulb is positioned to look like a bunny’s tail. 

9. New York Balsam Pillow – Emanating the scent of fresh pine trees, this pillow is perfect for undie drawers and closets.   

10. Subscription to Domino Magazine – Do I have to explain?  

11. Catbird Threadbare Ring – I wear this ring everyday and it elicits so many compliments from strangers and friends.  

12. Shobha Eyebrow Threading Session – Severely underrated, eyebrow grooming can drastically enhance the look of one’s face.  This clean and brightly-lit salon has wonderful customer service and the best eyebrow technicians in Manhattan.  (Please believe that I have tried everywhere.) 

13. Twig Terrarium – Who doesn’t love a terrarium? Twig’s pricing ranges between $25- $300 and options include DIY kits or fully-assembled terrariums.  

14. Naked 3 Palette – The latest edition of this versatile make-up palette works on all complexions and lasts forever.  Great value for a luxurious and functional present.  

15. Library of Flowers Parfum Creme – Besides the charming packaging, this intensely-rich creme comes in 12 scents and soothes dry skin during the harsh winter months.  Oh, also, Oprah named this product one of her favorite things.  

16. John Barrett @ Bergdorf Goodman Braid Bar Session – It’s no secret that my hair-styling skills are severely lacking. Since the John Barrett Braid Bar opened, I quietly pined for a session, but stuck with my strict embargo against such frivolous expenses.  However, if someone handed me a gift card, I’d dance like Snoopy and immediately zip to Bergdorf’s. Cue: cloud of smoke     

17. Eye Clock – Hilarious and functional, this clock is a great gift for the special goofballs in your life.   

18. Lizzie Fortunato Scale Bracelet – Organic and arresting, you cannot go wrong giving anything from this designer.  

19. Alpaca Throw – Supremely soft and beautifully designed, this throw is a slam-dunk for moms and sisters. 

20. Saturdays NYC Candle – Stunning design and alluring scent.  

21. Magic Carpet Yoga Mat – Designed to emulate a Persian rug, this yoga mat is just everything.  Magic Carpet offers several different designs that any yoga-enthusiast will be thrilled to receive.  

22. Lucite Clutch – Ugh, this bag is so on-trend and affordable it makes me want to throw up.  If you don’t buy this for a friend, please buy it for yourself and channel Charlotte Olympia

23. Imitation Malachite West Elm Jewelry Box – Indulge her in of the season’s hottest trends with a present that is functional and budget-friendly.     

24. Dry Bar Blow Out – Boys, treat your lady  to this fancy luxury and she’ll be super enthused.  I guarantee it. 

25. Magnetic Cloud Key Holder – I can never, ever find my keys.  This cute cloud is necessary! 

26. Pixel Laptop Sleeve – My head exploded when I first laid eyes on this sleeve.  Offered in various sizes that accommodate iPads and laptops, this is a great find for the tech-obsessed.  

27. Frends Layla Headphones – Aesthetically and aurally-pleasing, these headphones are the perfect marriage of form and function.
