Gals, truth be told, I am a lover of pretty little things. I don’t know if I would necessarily describe myself as “girly” per se, but when I look around, I definitely have a lot of items I would describe as “pretty little things.” For me, these items make some of the best gifts. If you’ve got someone in your life who loves lovely, feminine things, check out some of my favorite picks below:
I am a sucker for cashmere sweaters, particularly those of the Ralph Lauren variety. These Ralph Lauren Blue Label Long-Sleeve V-Neck Sweaters ($145 each) are a fabulous gift for pretty much everyone. Luxurious, pretty – yep, they’re pretty much perfect.
I love gorgeous things that do double duty and this gorgeous Jouer Pochette ($78, a Nordstrom exclusive) is THE perfect merger of beauty and fashion. It’s a beautiful sueded wristlet that zips open to reveal perfect compartments for your essentials (credit card slots, a cell phone strap) along with a tiny mirror and a gorgeous little lip gloss for the brand. GET THIS FOR NEW YEAR’S EVE.
As an admitted Miu Miu fanatic, I can think of no better gift than a gorgeous Miu Miu Clutch ($1,050.) If you’re going to go all out when it comes to pretty, this would be the perfect luxury item and they’re just so lovely.
If you’ve got a fragrance fan in the house, I’m in LOVE with the new Gucci Premiere fragrance ($105). Meant to evoke the golden age of Hollywood and the celebration of luxury, the combination of bergamot, orange blossom, musk and white flowers opens like a bottle of champagne and dries down to a warm musky floral. It’s amazing.
Also, when it comes to fragrance, I can honestly suggest no better company than Tocca. This Eau de Parfum Viaggio ($45) is a limited-edition fragrance set that contains dainty portions of Graciella (a lush and creamy scent inspired by Grace Kelly,) Violette (green and floral, inspired by springtime in Paris) and Guilietta (inspired by Corsica, it’s a mediterranean floral.) It’s lovely and amazing and would make a spectacular gift.
Finally, also from Tocca is the Profumo Veloce ($52), a gorgeous fragrance purse atomizer set that contains travel-ready refillable atomizers of either Cleopatra (shown, inspired by the famous ruler, gorgeous Mediterranean floral,) Stella (a flirty, fresh floral) and Florence (a sophisticated garden floral.)
Which of these pretty things is your favorite? I know I can’t pick just one…
