A Gift Guide for the Women in Your Life
There is nothing like the pressure of holiday gifting to send a man into a panic, especially when he’s looking for thoughtful presents for all the women in his life. No fear – The Shops at Columbus Circle is here with tips to make it easier than ever this year, plus gift ideas that will make YOU the shining star of the season.
1. Don't wait (but it's ok if you do).
First and foremost, don't delay. But if you have put off your shopping until the last minute, you're in luck: You’ll find great gift-giving ideas at Michael Kors. Whether it's your sister or your mom or your girlfriend, the fanciful Natasha Love Slides ($110) will warm her heart.
When it comes to gift-giving, it's totally fine to cheat. Ask the shopkeeper what she wants for Christmas. One of the staffers at Swarovski told us she would be dazzled by the mesh fit necklace ($199). It’s perfect for a romantic holiday evening of dining and dancing.
3. Pick a universal favorite.
Just not sure what to get for the woman on your list who has everything? A stylish and versatile tote is always a winner. The seasonless metallic gold Peggy Tote ($295) from L.K.Bennett will add a glow to even the grayest winter days.
4. Keep it fun.
Think of stocking up on gifts that girls of all ages will love. Coach has a menagerie of beautifully crafted leather charms that can hang off a handbag or hold a set of keys. There’s a whimsical assortment of frogs, sharks, dinosaurs, dogs, and unicorns ($150) that are great for kids or the young at heart.
5. Appeal to her inner bookworm.
You can never go wrong at Amazon Books, and the latest Kindle Oasis ($249.99) is the ideal gift for a bookworm on the go. Updated with waterproofing, longer battery life, and a larger screen, it weighs less than a paperback, so it’s ideal for travel.
6. Make your list and check it twice, Santa!
You don't want to leave anyone off, and fragrance is a no-brainer. Tom Ford’s Fleur de Portofino Eau de Parfum ($230 for 1.7 oz) from Sephora has bright floral notes of jasmine and white acacia that will transport you to warmer climates.
