Big Fashion Books
Have a fashion-obsessed friend who loves creating their own looks? Gift them a big fashion book and watch their eyes light up as their fashion imagination runs wild. There’s nothing like seeing a table piled with big fashion names from magazines like Vogue & Vanity Fair to designers like Chanel & Tom Ford.
Belt Bags and Mini Wallets
Belt bags and mini wallets from Shopbop make a perfect gift for travel enthusiasts. Got a friend or relative who is always heading on their next big adventure? Or maybe she’s always on the go and just likes to be hands-free? Not only are they great (period) but they’re also trendy, fashionable.
Who doesn’t want their homes smelling nice all the time? Scented candles promote a sense of zen which helps us destress. They’re the perfect gift for the people who need a little R&R. Think of the stay-at-home mom or pop with little hellions who keep them on their toes. Or someone in a high-stress job who hasn’t taken a vacation in a long time. The scented candles from Diptyque or Jo Malone will be the perfect gifts for them this season.
You can’t go wrong with fragrances and perfumes. They’re an evergreen gift you can give to anyone no matter what the occasion. And when you gift someone their favourite scent? They’re going to love you forever! The holiday season is also a great time to scoop up value sets which are often well-priced with several additional gifts like a rollerball or travel size fragrance.
Make-up and Skincare Sets
There’s no better feeling than seeing someone open a gift they’ve been lusting over. Whether they like to play with the basics or the kind of love having an entire arsenal of cosmetics, you can find the perfect make-up set for them at Sephora or Mac. If skincare is more their jam, then get the hottest skincare sets from Bliss or Goop.

Office accessories are a very underrated gift item. Seriously.

It shows them that you pay attention to what they’re interested in. Become someone’s favourite gift giver by shopping some great brands. Kate Spade has some super cute gold items we love, and Swarovski has those magically glittery pens that have luxe written all over them.
