The gift-giving season is upon us, and there’s no better way to spread cheer than by doing it thoughtfully. Here’s a few items that have come across my desk recently, destined to make outstanding gifts for your loved ones, but don’t forget to treat yourself too!
Would you like the best of essie, in a handy dandy, stocking stuffer-sized package? Wish, granted! The Limited Edition essie Holiday Collection Kit features five iconic essie shades (ballet slippers, chinchilly, turquoise & caicos, forever yummy, and wicked) in travel-friendly bottles, perfect for every female on your shopping list! Plus, the price is at a great sweet spot, $15, which also means hurry and pick yours up now, as they are blowing off of the shelves!
I refuse to show up empty-handed at a party, and if it’s in someone’s home, artisan, organic soaps make an excellent gift. Osmia Organics’ latest creations lavender mint (organic, Bulgarian lavender and organic, wild mint), and zucca spice (“zucca” means pumpkin, in Italian; made with organic pumpkin, powdered rose hips, organic coriander seed essential oil) are two seasonal scents that are subtle enough to be used all year ’round, yet still absolutely spot-on for the holidays. Each bar retails for $12, and is available at OsmiaOrganics.com.
Looking for the ultimate culmination of fashion and technology, all wrapped up into one gift? I found it for you! eBay and the CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers of America) have created a holiday collective with five outstanding designers (Mara Hoffman, Rachel Zoe, Michael Bastian, MILLY by Michelle Smith, Shipley & Halmos) to furnish bracelets, that double as USB chargers, with original designs. Each bracelet comes with USB attachments so you can stylishly be at the ready to plug in and charge your smartphone or tablet device no matter where you go. Each bracelet/USB charger retails for $25 with free shipping, and is available at eBay.com/HolidayCollective for a limited time.
Continue along the tech + fashion theme with a pair of Verloop Rothko-Inspired Touchscreen Gloves, $29, a one-size-fits-all knitted pair of gloves that let you text, search, and dial away on your phone while keeping your fingers warm and cozy. The thumb, middle, and index fingertips have a nano-metallic conductive yarn woven in to aid in accuracy on touchscreen devices, and will make a thoughtful gift for those gals that seem to have everything (but not a pair of these, yet!).
