One for you and one for me, it’s hard shopping for all the lovely ladies in my life, because I always want to give a gift that I want as well. So the Gift Guide For Her – below, is a wish list for you, but really for me.
I still haven’t purchased this classic favourite; the Gucci Marmont mini-quilted leather shoulder bag, still a must-have! I love the selection of beautiful shades at Tom Ford, the Soleil Eye and Cheek Palette works well with most all skin shades, a great beauty gift. A Burberry bear, what’s not to love, this checked cashmere teddy bear keychain is a perfect little stocking filler. If you know a girlfriend, who is a great poker player, this is the chicest set ever, but if not, it simply makes for some stylish fun with these M’oda ‘Operandi exclusive playing cards by Peep’s Paper Products.
By Brit interior designer Tom Dixon, this large ‘London’ scent candle in a copper vase makes a solid statement. Everything’s coming up roses with this Maison Francis Kurdjian, à la rose gift set, and it’s a case by Case Scenario, an exclusive collaboration by boutique The Webster x Pantone with this iPhone 6 case. Dark and sexy is always chic, and Tom Ford knows how to set that mood especially with Noir Extreme Eau de Parfum in 3.4oz, and a classic pair of diamond studs should always be on the wish list, add some sparkle from Anita Ko with 0.24-carats set in 18-karat gold.
I can’t curate a gift guide without including a butterfly, and I’ve received this gift from a good friend, and I’ve also gifted this gem of happiness to another great friend, shimmering in gold, a Golden Lucky Butterfly by Baccarat. Stop at the Hemingway Bar at the Ritz Paris, adorned in this Olympia Le-Tan clutch by The Webster x Ritz Paris a collaboration in celebration of the hotel’s recent reopening. Oops, this is my third Tom Ford gift, but I do love this shade of lipstick, Lips & Boys – in Anderson. A bunny for a child, but maybe their’s an inner-child in you that can’t resist a soft floppy-eared bunny, this Jellycat bashful bunny is too cute.
Peace and Love, that’s all you need with this Edie Parker, Flavia clutch bag in rose quartz, and a nod to my fashion design roots, I want this Taschen tome hardcover book, Fashion Designers A-Z. From the scent of roses to the latest floral and fresh creation by Creed, Aventus for Her, 75ml Eau de Parfum, with hints of Egyptian green apple, Turkish roses and Indian sandalwood with a base of sweet peach, amber and ylang-ylang, the fragrance is divine! And lastly a little whimsy from Loewe, with an elephant coin purse in pink leather. Never forget your change! Merry, merry and happy shopping!
