Gift Guide: For the Girls

Wednesday, December 5, 2012

With Christmas around the corner, gifting-giving and merriment are too. Over the next few weeks,  Never Fully Dressed  will be hosting several great guest posters who are here to share some gift guides for the loved ones in your life. Elana often posts amazing fashion finds on her blog, Room 334, so she seemed like the perfect person to ask what to get the ladies for Christmas! 

Hello and happy holidays, Never Fully Dressed (Without a Style) readers! I'm Elana from Room 334 and not only is this my absolute favorite time of year, but buying presents for loved ones is my favorite part about it. I've always loved coming up with gifts I know people would like, which is why I was so excited to create this gift guide for "the girls" for Kristian. Whether your shopping for a friend, mom, sister or someone else, I hope I've at least found a few ideas that will suit you in every price range.

What I love about these lovely envelope cases from Etsy shop MATINE is that not only do they work wonderfully as clutches, but they're also meant to fit Kindles as well. That means that this gift can work for the fashion conscious girl or the bookworm. (Etsy, $52)

This Somerset Pendant necklace from Ruche is actually on my own list this year. It's such a sweet piece and the color is divine. (Ruche, $14.99)
Though I'm more of a coffee drinker myself, I love the idea of giving a teapot as a gift. This one from Asleep From Day just screams Christmas present with its minimalist tree design, not to mention the two cups it comes with. (Etsy, $42.74)
Scott Schuman released his new book, The Sartorialist: Closer, just a few months ago and I think it makes a wonderful gift. Filled with gorgeous images that never made it to his site, it's perfect for those who love coffee table-esque books. (Amazon, $18.98)
Before anyone writes off the idea of giving a glasses case as a gift, hear me out. As a contacts wearer, I often find myself carrying my glasses in my bag in case my contacts dry out or I'm out late. I'm sure many women do the same and this adorable case from Anthro is something that most would never buy for themselves, but it will sure make carrying glasses around a lot more fun. (Anthropologie, $24)
For those who love decorating, this hand painted pillow from Hello Milky is too cute to pass up. (Etsy, $36.44)
Your best friend or sister might actually die if you get her the Hepcat shades that she's been lusting after for so long. I know I would. (Madewell, $55)
Lastly, every woman needs a little sewing kit on hand for those unplanned disasters. Who needs a boring old plain one when this Modcloth kit is so much more fun. (Modcloth, $29.99)

  5. You basically just listed a bunch of things I want and need in my life. I'm tempted to make a pillow just like that for myself (although it would probably resemble more of a lump). And that first envelope clutch? Incredible!
