Holiday Gift Guide
Hello! Just about a week until Christmas and I thought I would put together a little help for last-minute Santas!
There is nothing better than being cozy this time of year. Maybe it's a New England thing but don't even think about showing me your resort collection until well into February! I seem to want everything I touch to be flannel or lined with fleece or shearling. Seriously, if they made underpants lined with shearling I might consider them! I love layers and layers of cozy and in my opinion, the more, the cozier!
Here are some of my cozy favorites, perfect gifts for the girl on your list who's favorite knit is cable, loves a mug in her hand, a flake on her cheek and a scarf 'round her neck!
1.) Cole Haan Sadie Shearling-lined Drivers ~ Zappos I have nothing against Uggs, they are great for running to the post office or, you know, after a long morning of surfing.... but I am longing for something more refined. (Don't even get me started on leggings-as-pants) I am, however, unwilling to let go of the splendor and comfort that comes with a full (real) shearling lining. Enter this loafer. The comfort of a slipper with the refinement (and sole) of a loafer. The fact that it comes in fun colors is just a bonus.
2.) Meadowlark Knitted Cap ~ Sundance Oh how I love this hat!! Warm plus super cute? And flattering to boot!? I wonder if Santa takes rush orders??
3.)Cable Knit Sweater ~ H&M A cream colored cable knit is an absolute staple in a cozy winter wardrobe. Make it slightly over-sized (or better yet, his) and we are in business. It is even acceptable to wear leggings-as-pants (provided your hind quarters are covered) with this lovely...add your favorite tall boots and the biggest scarf you can find and head off for hot chocolate!
4.)Vintage Sweater Tall Socks ~ Free People Add a layer of cozy under your favorite tall boots with these knit tall socks. Perfect stockings for her stocking!
5.) Boot Tights ~ Sahalie These boot tights are probably the coolest product I have seen this year! Such a need-filler (useful!) and a total cozy-qualifier! Opaque tights with actual socks built right in! No more tights plus socks with your boots! These also come with short socks and in other styles and colors. Genius!
6.)Fleece Lined Crocheted Fingerless Gloves ~ Marmalade (call: 617-484-0093) These are my favorite winter accessory hands down (no pun intended). I have several pair and can never decide which color I think is cutest! They are lined with fleece for cozy warmth and leave your fingers free so you can still use your smart phone or type when you wear them inside... (what? they are that cute!)
7.) LeCreuset Enameled Dutch Oven ~ Le Creuset This might be the thing I use most often in my kitchen next to forks. It is heavy, sturdy, and she will have it forever. Great for everything from soups to casseroles to roasts and goes from the stovetop to the oven and (at our house) right into the fridge! She will love it ...and hopefully make you something delicious!
8.) Hand Painted Polka Dot Mug ~ Marmalade (call: 617-484-0093) Speaking of hot chocolate! What cuter way to wrap your hands around it then in this polka dot mug!
9.) White + Warren Cashmere Travel Wrap ~ White + Warren This might be on every gift guide I ever do, ever. Simply the best, coziest, largest, softest, loveliest most delightful thing ever. I wish I still had mine. Sadly, someone in the security line at SFO now does. Tear. If she travels it is a must, but even if she stays more local it is the perfect thing to keep her safe and warm.
10.) Tweed Boots ~ Joules A cute addition to her winter wardrobe, these cozy tweed boots are a little bit cuter than the rest of the lace-ups in their class. With a woodsy plaid and a faux fur lining for extra warmth they are a perfect fit!
11.) Camden Tote ~ Madewell This calf-hair tote is perfectly chic and cozy! It is large enough to fit all of her essentials and that extra book to read at the cafe. With an optional shoulder strap and super cute patterns this a winner under the tree!
