THERE ARE SEVEN DAYS UNTIL CHRISTMAS, AND YOU DON’T HAVE “THE GIFT” FOR THAT STYLISH FEMME IN YOUR ORBIT. NO NEED TO PANIC. WE HAVE YOU. GO POUR yourself a BIG SERVING OF SOMETHING RED, THEN have a read through our list of Gifts that are sure to make even the most stylish WOMAN in your life SIT UP AND TAKE NOTICE ON CHRISTMAS MORNING.
For the woman who knows what she wants, this exotic and luxurious parfum is wrapped in rich oriental leather. It looks expensive because it is expensive. But it really does smell as the name suggests. So until next summer when you’re on the Amalfi coast swathed in the elixir of salt air and Sorrento lemons, it’s the next best way to transport yourself somewhere decadent.
For the appreciator of genius. Pierre-Joseph Redouté is the “Raphael” of flowers. All of his engravings (yes, they’re engravings) from his previous works are collected together here. Even if you have never heard of him, Mssr. Redouté can transport you to the gardens of a bygone Paris.
For the astrologist in your life. Chinti and Parker's luscious robe is made from their thick signature cashmere, done here in navy and populated in graphic white stars. It’s magic whether you wear it day or night.
For the stylish cook. (Full disclosure, we used these for the men’s guide, too. But they’re just so cool we had to put them in again.) From M. Cook, these engraved, hand-painted cutting boards, gilded with a bronze hook for hanging, are both practical and a very stylish addition to any kitchen. Bon appetit.
For the woman who knows how to laugh at the cold. Zadig & Voltaire’s crew neck sweater, with its long sleeves and iridescent leather star elbow patches is 100% cashmere. The elements don’t stand a chance.
For the glamorous pragmatist. Subtle creamy textured bisque finish on the outside with a surprising gold interior, these handmade hostess items are lovely and elegant. Fill them up with M&M’s or something more decadent. Your choice.
For the woman who knows that style doesn’t have to be spendy. The Roya Studded Bootie is super stylish. With all over studs and a cone heel, it’s the perfect balance of chic and punk, kicking ass well into winter.
For the tuned in. Every home needs a little glow, and these lamps with ancient salt crystals are intended to exude negative ions that naturally recharge air and repel allergens. Om.
For the iconoclast. It’s a 100 years old and still looks fabulous. Jackie wore it. So did Diana. This one, in the 'Américaine' style, is slightly oversized and cast from 18-karat pink gold. With blued steel sword-shaped hands, a discreet date display at 6 o'clock and a rich brown alligator strap, this watch doesn’t shout, it purrs.
For the royal wanderlust. The world's most famous suitcase. Globe-Trotter has been the kind since the early 1900s when it became the luggage of choice for those traveling on luxury cruise liners. Handcrafted in Hertfordshire, England from cream fiberboard that's both durable and incredibly lightweight, it’s trimmed with blush leather and has internal straps to keep your belongings secure. Rumor has it that the Queen has a closet full of them.
