What do you gift that one friend whose singular sense of style always stuns? The one who is always dressed to the nines? The aficionado who has their finger on the fashion pulse and hand strapped to the Vogue Runway app? After all, style is personal. We all interpret and include trends in our closets in our own way. When gifting your fashion friend, it all comes down to their interests and knowing them on a personal level.
On the quest to find the perfect present, ask yourself, "What is the one thing they wouldn't leave the house without?" Is it that spectacular pair of shades, or a sparkling statement shoe? This simple question significantly narrows down your options to a more manageable scale.
The golden rule of gifting is simple, always get someone something that you would want yourself. Whenever I go shopping, I lean towards the effortless yet eye-catching. The pieces or looks that are strong enough to stand on their own, without much assistance.
With this in mind, in this gift guide I have gathered the presents I'd give myself and be proud to pass on to my fellow fashion aficionados as well.
Warm, playful and vibrant coats are exactly what everyone needs in the winter. It's an excellent and easy trick to lift your family or friends' spirits. Better yet – get the matching accessories for the ultimate treat.
Who wouldn't love to receive a big scarf made of Norwegian Lambswool with pockets to hide your hands from the cold? Wearing this feels like snuggling with an adorable lamb, which is what we all want to feel on a winters' day.
Baum Und Pferdgarten
The perfect layering piece is the knitted vest. Whether worn under a blazer, or over an oversize tee – it's a gift that will guarantee big hugs when opened.
Hafjell Knit Bib
Enough is enough. Each year I lose my mittens and hats because I just throw them anywhere when I get inside. My solution? A tote to carry all of your essentials, gifting matching ones to loved ones, of course.
A knitted bib is the alternative to the vest. Versatile, it keeps us warm when bracing for the winter chill. Best received by that one friend who is always complaining about a sniffle or cold.
Knitted cashmere balaclava
A knitted cashmere balaclava, do I need to say more? It keeps the recipient warm and protects your hair. Truly a gift that keeps giving season after season.
