5 Unique Holiday Gifts for the Stylish Woman (who has everything)

December 03, 2012

Holiday gift giving can be maddening, especially trying to find that perfect something for the woman who has everything. Well, think fashion "accessories" and you can't go wrong. Accessories add the finishing touch to an outfit. And a stylish woman can't have too many timeless and unique accessories. Accessories are always the perfect fit, and no matter how many accessories she already has, another gorgeous addition will always be welcomed and loved. 

Here's my 5 picks for unique holiday gift accessories that will wow her (or woo her!) with your thoughtfulness and make her feel extra special.*


Yosi Samra fold up ballet flats. $66-$88 We don't usually think of fold up slippers as a fashion accessory, but these are a fabulous exception to the rule. For traveling or staying at home (think, by the fire!) or to keep in a glove compartment for times when those heels have worn out their welcome. And they come in tons of exciting colors and materials! I was visiting my children recently and spent most of the time indoors playing with grandkids. I wore soft shoes like these all the time I was in the house and was so much more comfortable than if I were wearing regular shoes but still looked stylish. (No offense to bunny slippers!)

Nina Forrest crystal, wood and freshwater pearl pendant necklace. $228 FIve strands in tones of pale pinks and browns in a mixture of glowing Czech crystal, deep colored wood and two shades of pink freshwater pearls combined with the unexpected touch of a carved bone pendant. A mixture of East meets West. Goes with everything from jeans to a business suit to an evening out. She can't possibly have anything like this.


Rebecca Minkoff metallic bag. $250 This gold leather cross body bag works with everything from jeans to evening clothes. It's just the right size for her essentials and being able to carry it across the body allows her to keep it with her if she prefers. It comes in other colors, but the metallic gold is classic and really a show stopper at the same time. And the streamers add a touch of panache!


Burberry plaid cashmere scarf. $395 Cashmere is the ultimate in luxury and this black and white check fringed scarf will be so toasty wrapped around her neck on cold wintry days but can be worn almost all year around. A simple way to add drama to an outfit, it goes with simple t-shirts, dresses and sweaters and can be tied in multiple ways. (Add a little note in the gift with the web site address: www.scarves.net/how-to-tie-a-scarf) It also comes in other color combinations, all of which are stunning.


Nina Forrest colors of the carribean earrings. $64 She will look dazzling in these earrings in three shades of blue/green, colors which flatter all skin tones. These dangle earrings are made of turquoise, jade, apatite and aquamarine semi-precious beads. They hang 1 3/4 inches, but are not heavy. This is the perfect accessory for the woman who likes to wear one perfect piece of jewelry that will have her stand out in a crowd!

*If you know that someone on your gift list would love beautiful handmade jewelry that’s one-of-a-kind, please feel free to contact me for a recommendation. I’d be happy to talk to you about what she might like based on her style or create a custom piece of jewelry that will wow her this holiday season. Cheers!

Hopes for a Democrat clean sweep bring big gains on markets:
The prospect of Joe Biden launching a big stimulus package in the US if the Democrats secure a unexpected clean sweep of Congress and the White House has led to big gains for financial markets.

One of the many art forms I love is ceramics. The other day I was flipping through an art book on my shelf and I couldn't take my eyes off of this photo. Later in the day, I realized why. Their swirly pattern looked almost exactly like the posts on these brass and Swarovski crystal earrings I recently made.

I love neutrals, especially animal prints. But neutral colors can be - well - a little boring! And what better way to to add that color than with a fabulous necklace with a red coral accent bead.
