With the past Black Friday weekend unofficially marking the beginning of the holiday season, we’re now at full throttle in the gift-shopping department. Knowing how difficult and stressful this time can be, we’re here to take the guesswork out of shopping. From the tech girls to the beauty diehards, we round up some of the most chic gifts out there that will please the fashion girls in your life.
In a world where we need to document every part of our life via Instagram, our smartphones have often doubled as our on-the-go cameras. With phone camera resolutions significantly poorer than DSLRs, why not help make photos stand out with this handy Ottoclip 4-in-1 clip-on lens, which includes fisheye, wide-angle and two macro lenses. She’ll no doubt get perfectly sharp photos every shot.
You know what they say, give a girl the right pair of shoes and she can conquer the world. We’re sure that the special girl in your life already has all the basic pumps she needs to get by everyday, so why not spoil her with a pair of statement shoes that would definitely get her heart fluttering in an instant.
Jennifer Meyer is much coveted when it comes to jewellery. With the minimalist trend being the trend du jour, dainty gold necklaces are the way to go in the accessories department. Generate some brownie points and opt for a monogrammed version for the additional personal touch.
Jo Malone and Diptyque are a couple of fragrance brands that have become a must-haves on every fashion girl’s vanity table (read: Instagram feed). However, Byredo Parfum is undoubtedly becoming a rising favourite. With its easy-to-spot black and white design, the minimalists at heart will squeal at the sight of this gift comes Christmas morning.
In case you didn’t know, mini bags are all the rage right now. And with Apple Pay finally available for Canadians, why make your lady undergo the hassle of carrying a big handbag? This season, gift her a mini version of her favourite designer bag instead. Aside from being absolutely adorable, it’s also a, erm, easier on the wallet when it comes to purchasing luxury bags.
Last year Christian Louboutin’s nail polish generated a lot of hype, so why not follow up with its latest beauty venture: the lipstick. Just as outrageously (but beautifully) designed, what fashion girl would not melt at the sight of this red lipstick? And let’s face it. When it comes to red, no one does it better than Louboutin.
Gloomy, rainy days can be a downer. But with the right rainy accessories, it can be tolerable. Enter Alexander McQueen’s umbrella. With its iconic skull-shaped handle in pink (!) and its collapsible compact size to carry in her purse, the recipient will surely be singing in the rain in no time.
There probably isn’t a fashion girl out there who never wanted to channel the Olsen twins at one point in her life. With the ‘70s making a comeback, a pair of these retro round sunglasses from their award-winning brand, The Row, these will certainly help her come close to channelling the multi-talented twin sisters. Sort of.
Garance Doré is a well-loved illustrator and influencer in the fashion world, so it would be an understatement to say the launch of her book was not a much-anticipated one. For the girls who also moonlight as fashion book hoarders, we know Doré’s Love Style Life book will make for a perfect addition to her every-growing coffee table book collection.
Ever since Apple announced it would be collaborating with the crème de la crème of accessory brands, Hermès, for its Apple Watch, we instantly put the luxe tech accessory down on our wish lists. Because really, this is what fashion dreams are made of. And with it packaged in the French designer house’s iconic orange box, this is the ultimate fail proof gift for anyone. Trust us. Nothing says glam and chic quite like this.
