Nixon Clutch Watch ($250)
Nixon always gets wristwear right, from statement pieces to the core basics. We love this Clutch watch because it works for every day, but it’s sleek and sophisticated enough to dress up, too. The modern design nods to classic features, like a day of the week function that uses sunshine markings to represent the weekend.
Zeel Couples Massage ($200-$300)
The only thing better than a massage is a massage in your own home. Zeel on demand brings the tables, relaxing music and masseuses to you, so all you have to worry about is relaxing. Surprise her with a couples massage and you can individually choose from Swedish, deep tissue, sports or prenatal style. It’s the perfect prep for a big night out or cozy night in to celebrate the holiday.
BALDWIN Effie Sweater ($325)
She always steals your sweaters and pullovers because she says they’re more comfy than her own. We think it’s time to change that, and BALDWIN can help. This warm, comfy cardigan can be worn with anything from a skirt and heels to sweats when she’s curled up on the couch. And it’s a piece she’ll have forever, especially because BALDWIN uses only the highest quality materials and manufacturers in the United States.
Any child of the ‘90s will remember the old ball and chain necklace, and this is the best reiteration of the trend we’ve ever seen. Jewelry designer Linda Smyth is inspired by archetypal motifs found in nature for her jewelry line We Who Prey, and each piece is a statement in its simplicity and expert craftsmanship. She’ll love pairing this rose gold-coated choker with jeans and a tee or wearing it to give some edge to her favorite little black dress.
M.Gemi Handcrafted Italian Shoes ($178-$478)
M.Gemi has changed the way we shop for quality leather shoes. It’s no secret that as soon as a high-end label puts their name on a product, the price skyrockets. The folks who founded M.Gemi wanted to change that, so they launched a direct-to-consumer business model where they source all of their handcrafted shoes from family-owned Italian factories. Not only do they have a line of elevated basics you can shop anytime, a new selection of styles is released each week if you’re looking for a special pair. Grab her a gift card so she can choose her favorite.
Tavik Finley Dress ($75)
Warm weather will be here before we know it, so we know your girl’s mind is already on her next beach trip. Whether you’re going somewhere warm for the winter or just want to outfit her right for summer, this gorgeous cover up dress from Tavik is easy, breezy and offers just the right amount of coverage. The festive burn out palm print is perfect to get her from the pool party to the beach bar with little effort.
Andrew Marc Sage Moto Jacket ($559)
This chic moto jacket nods to ‘70s style but has a modern, wear-anywhere cut that she’ll never want to take off. Designed in sumptuous suede, she’ll be able to rock this piece spring, fall and winter, especially because the removable shearling collar will keep her extra warm when the cold winds blow. This is the type of jacket you can throw on with anything and look like a million bucks.
AOKO SU Monolith Earrings ($100)
Jewelry designer Ashley Jerman is motivated by juxtaposition. She draws inspiration from the craggy terrain that surrounds her in Missoula, Montana just as often as she looks to modern architecture when designing her timeless jewelry. These stunning earrings cast a magical glow every time the light hits their bronze facet, and each pair is hand-forged in her American studio.
