The best gifts to recieve are the things we love but just cannot reach priority status on our must-have list. Stylish people give just that. When holiday shopping, nothing exhibits more style than knowing your recipient and garnishing them with a spoiler gift…no matter the budget. Here are some ideas on how to get it right…

1. A thoughtful gift…

A gift that demonstrates knowing your recipient intimately is always a win. For the new-to-the-workforce, travelling gal, a wardrobe carrying case is a useful piece. The World Traveler 40” hanging garment bag, $33 on amazon.com, is perfect for those on a budget.

2. A gift for the kids…

If your budget forces you to choose between a good friend and their child, by all means purchase a gift for their child. Parents are most happiest when their children are in their friend’s thoughts. (And then give them the proverbial bottle of wine – it is always fashionable.)

4. For the gentleman…

Gift for the gentleman or the city guy requires generous thought. Small touches that offer him just the right amount of flare is the best gift.

 

 

 

4. For the ladies…

Like the gentleman, something for your girlfriend requires the same flare. All wardrobes can use another one of these pieces which also offers a gentle wardrobe update. Our favorite is a stocking full of panties…
