I’m a practical girl by nature and a fashionista in my heart and by trade. I love useful gifts, and when they are well made, look and feel luxurious, I love them even more.
Here is a list of holiday gifts under $100 for your fashionista who has everything. Even if you are on a tight budget, you could get her everything on this list and look like a big spender. Appeal to the practical side of her. Help her take care of her clothes, jewelry, smart phone and handle mini-emergencies with these practical and stylish gifts.
Something stylishly practical for her closet
Help your fashionista take care of all of her lovely things in style. Give her clothes hangers with character. These sturdy metal hangers shaped like a mustache have a fun quirky side and a practical side. The design holds spaghetti strap tops and sleeveless sundresses better than traditional hangers. A set of 4 is $13.00 www.thestache.com
Something for stylish travel
Help your fashionista and her jewelry travel in style with a leather jewelry portfolio. The suede interior contains four snaps for necklaces, a ring bar and earring bar, and three felt lined zipper pockets. This wonderful gift can be monogrammed and comes in a variety of colors in fine-pebbled leather. A great gift for employees as well. $95.00 http://www.leatherology.com/
Something for emergencies
She’ll be prepared for any fashion emergency with a Minimergency Kit. A small zippered bag that holds 17 personal care, beauty, and style essentials. Fits easily in her handbag or desk drawer. The bag is available in a variety of colors and patterns. Refills available. $16.00 http://www.pinchprovisions.com/
Something stylishly practical for her technology
Let’s face it, our lovely over-sized bags are great for our biceps, but sometimes a girl just wants to be a little more unencumbered. If you want to give her something European, actually Eastern European, handmade, leather, stylish and practical consider a custom iPhone 6 or Samsung Galaxy s5 wallet with a wrist strap. They are handmade in Russia and sold on Etsy. She will love this one because she won’t have to remove the phone from the wallet to answer it. It holds her essentials: ID, credit cards and mad money. These stylish wallets are available in various colors and finishes. Order soon because it takes two weeks to arrive. I promise you, she will be the first on her tennis team to have one. $43.00 https://www.etsy.com/shop/leatherpurses
Something stylishly cozy
Every fashionista wants something luxuriously soft to keep them warm. I have fallen in love with the Bordeaux shawl wrap by Noelle. It can be worn five different ways. All of my clients know I adore clothing items that can be used in various ways. This one can be worn as a vest, a shrug, an asymmetric poncho, and a cowl wrap. It comes in a variety of colors. 100% acrylic, super soft and super affordable (around $20.00). It can be found in some local boutiques or on www.amazon.com
