Oh I hope you love these picks as much as I do! From a sartorial problem solver like magnetic cuff links to a phone charging bracelet, the newest scent in my perfume cabinet, and a fun athleisure collaboration with Adidas and Stella McCartney, there is a little something for everyone (including a smart watch masquerading as a traditional watch!).

 Holiday Gift Guide For Her Under 250 by Signature Style

For Her

  1. Lines, color, and details do style make – or beautiful shoes in this case. Love this coffee table book glimpse into some of Manolo Blahnik’s inspiration and beautiful creations. Bonus – it’s gone on major sale since I first found it a few weeks ago so you wanted until the perfect time to snag it. ;-)
  2. This new scent from Hermes is so lovely. It has a hint of powder notes mixed in with bold feminine tones and the name reminds me of the way Parisians pronounce Tuilleries Gardens. And the packaging reminds me of a colorful Thomas Crowne Affair so there’s that.
  3. These gorgeous gloves come in several colors, are lined with cashmere, and are tech friendly. Winning all around!
  4. I actually don’t subscribe to the philosophy that everything in your closet needs to last your entire lifetime but here are some earrings that could. Classic yet on trend in color and concept to last a whole heck of a long time in her closet. Bonus – great on all face shapes!
  5. Anyone else incapable of getting through the day on one battery and frequently forgetting charging cords and such? Enter this stylish charging bracelet from Mark and Graham. Because it shouldn’t only be the guys who get the cool techie gear.
  6. If she’s been looking for the shoe that has this heel, and that toe box, and that color, Shoes of Prey may be her new best friend. Pre-made and customizable shoes that won’t cost you a fortune.
  7. Style is in the details and this calfskin leather card holder is no exception. Quilted, champagne textured leather card case from YSL is a great way to keep her wallet pared down for the smaller bags that are the current trend.
  8. Atheleisure isn’t going away and I love the luxe look of this edgy Adidas x Stella McCartney hoodie. I saw it on a stylish friend of mine and immediately had to know everything about it. {SHOPPING NOTE: On sale, with slightly different arm material and free shipping at that link. Available in more sizes at this link – and the correct color is more like the one in this second link.}} Style note: skip this for your inverted triangle friends. The luxe, thick material will translate to linebacker instead of stylishly sporty.

For Him

Holiday Gift Guide For Him Under 250 by Signature Style

  1. Watches are making a comeback thanks to both the smart watch and the desire to not be engaged with our phones at all time. Love this compromise – Fossil’s hybrid smartwatch. Fitness tracker, control you music, ring your phone when it’s lost, and get notifications from certain contacts (in your phone settings, select a contact and attach it to a particular hour. When you receive a text from them the watch moves to that time. what?!). Seriously, go see everything it can do.
  2. Another one of my crush brands – Exuvius. I’ve listed their collar stays before and am LOVING these magnetic cufflinks. Not only are they magnetic, they have six interchangeable inserts including acacia wood, carbon fiber, and blue stone but they have extra buttons inside for those fashion emergencies. Act surprised family if you are reading this and end up getting this for Christmas. ;-)
  3. A stylish man is always prepared. Even if he only wears a tie a few times a year, make sure he is still sporting an updated look with a current shape, color, and pattern combo like this one from Burberry. If he’s truly starting from scratch in his elevated style efforts, consider this all-in-one box from The Tie Bar in Pantone’s 2018 Color of the Year!
  4. For the more sartorial recipient, this velvet bow tie is perfect. Classy takes on trends are the ones that are sure to last a good long while in one’s closet. He’ll stand out (in a good way) in the New Year’s, gala, and formal wedding crowd.
  5. I can’t look at this little guy and not smile. Yay for breaking out of the box! Literally. This little guy delivers tunes via Bluetooth and is certainly a #styleisinthedetails boost for his home decor.
  6. I’m a fan of Ted Baker and have found the brand to be pretty versatile as most clients have at least one or two pieces that we’ve worked into their wardrobe and personal style. This wool-blend jacket is an excellent smart casual/nearly dressy option for cold days at work or out and about.
  7. A scarf that brings some color into his wardrobe, matches literally everything, but isn’t overpoweringly colorful? You’re welcome. Extra 25% off with code FRIENDS through the weekend!
  8. Love this sterling silver Craighill cuff from Stag Provisions. The grooves oxidize with wear giving more depth and ruggedness to the look. 20% off with code STAGHOLIDAYS right now!

One more gift guide waiting in the wings! How are you doing with your Christmas shopping?? Are you done? Haven’t started? ;-) I’m about halfway done which is practically unprecedented. I tried to be one of those organized on-top-of-it people one year and bought gifts way in advance. I just ended up buying double gifts for everyone. :-/ LOL.
