Gift Guide: For the Ladies You Love

Happy holiday season! I love this time of year — decorated trees are starting to make their appearance, twinkling lights are coming out of their boxes, and it’s time to think about what to put under those green branches!

It can feel so wonderful to make something by hand, especially when so many of us spend our work days at a computer screen. Knitting is easy to learn, and creating a beautiful accessory from a stash of yarn is so satifying, especially in the cold weather. Some of my favorite yarn is from Manos del Uruguay and Madeleine Tosh – both have amazing colors. The patterns from Brooklyn Tweed (usually around $6) are always elegant and interesting. Check out Gather Here for classes! (classes $50+)

We recently wrote about Luxxie Boston, a new lingerie company from local Stefanie Mnayarji focused on “rebooting the slip.” The designs were made with women’s professional wardrobe in mind, but the pieces are so pretty and comfortable that you might want to wear them under casual clothes too – or even on their own!

I love to paint, but it is hard to find the time to take all the supplies out and then leave time to clean up. Because of that, I am trying to use watercolors more – they are so easy, and there is no big clean up or long wait for things to be dry the way there is with oil and acrylic. This portable paint box ($20.36 on Amazon) is so great, and I’ve also been enjoying the blog and online classes (starting at $30) from artist Alisa Burke.

It’s no secret that most women like jewelry. There are a few people on my list for whom I know that’s always a good pick. We have so many great local jewelers in Boston, and I’m sure several of them will be at the SOWA Holiday Market next weekend! If you are in the mood to splurge, Tiffany & Co. have lots of gorgeous pieces – I love this beautiful key pendant in rose gold ($800).

Flannel shirts are so warm and cozy. This one from Madewell would be perfect for chilly winter days! ($79.50) I also love these classics from local company Penfield. ($80-85)

Flowers can be a perfect gift! Whether its a selection you put together or an elaborate arrangement like the flowers above, gorgeous blooms are so welcome, especially on chilly winter days!
