Looking for unique Christmas gifts for family, friends or business contacts? Instead of a generic gift basket or yet another picture frame, how about a fashion gift? If that special person in your life loves fashion, then it’s a no-brainer. A fashion gift would be just perfect! But a fashion Christmas gift can be very appropriate for almost anyone.
In most cases, you will not want to buy an item of clothing, because you won’t know the size, or the recipient’s personal taste. However, if you know the gift recipient more intimately, then a cashmere sweater is an amazing gift, and if you shop at a discount store, you can get it for an affordable price. Scroll down for specific recommendations.
Your best choice in most cases is a nice accessory, such as a scarf, gloves or fashion jewelry. These enable the recipient to have fun updating the look of their existing outfits. By the way, our advice is to avoid ties for men: they have become such a cliché gift, that it’s better, in most cases, not to give them.
Here are our top five picks for fabulous fashion Christmas gifts:
These can get expensive of course, but bluefly.com offers a nice selection at reduced prices. This gorgeous crimson cashmere v-neck sweater by CeCe will set you back just $89
It’s a classic gift that will serve the recipient for many seasons. We adore these blue leather cashmere lined gloves from All Gloves. Price: $69
So pretty! This pink leather clutch by Linea Pelle makes a beautiful, very thoughtful gift. At $93, it’s the perfect gift for your sister or a close friend.
This is a fun gift to give, and to receive! Go safe with an item such as a bracelet, and avoid earrings – not everyone has pierced ears, and many women can’t wear metals other than pure gold in their ears. We think this silver beaded stretch bracelet is just fabulous, and the stretch will make sure it fits anyone. Price: $48
This black cashmere skull and crossbones scarf by Harrison is a fun gift! It costs $92, so if your budget is tighter, try a classic instead – this heather gray plaid wool ‘Chauncey’ scarf by Original Penguin is just $44.
Of course, a hand written note to go along with your gift is just as important as the gift itself. We wish you happy gift shopping, and a very happy holiday season!
