Christmas is less than a week away! For those who still need to get gifts for their friends and family (like me), I’ve compiled this holiday gift guide for the techies, stylelistas, and other awesome, cool people in your life.
Holiday Gift Guide for the Techies
Released just a few months ago, the fourth-generation iPad is the best of the best in the tablet market. There’s a reason why the iPad dominates the tablet space: sleek design, Retina display, high performance, long battery life…I could go on and on. If you can afford it, get it. For that special someone or for yourself 😉
Audio-Technica ATH-M50 Headphones
Reviews for these Audio-Technica headphones cite their excellent sound and build quality, among the best for its price point of under $200. The music lover on your list will appreciate the high quality sound these comfortable headphones provide.
Amazon Kindle Paperwhite
With a capacitive touch screen, high screen resolution (1,024×768-pixel display), and a built-in light, this e-reader rises above the rest and is posed as a competitor to the Nook Simple Touch with GlowLight. Starting at $119, the Kindle Paperwhite will be the perfect gift for your favorite e-bookworm.
Holiday Gift Guide for the Stylelistas
It’s fun to try out new beauty products. But, most of the time, it’ll take you months–and even years–before you’re even close to using up all your products if you’re constantly buying new creams, eyeshadows, lipsticks, etc. Birchbox lets you try out the latest and trendiest new beauty products by delivering a box of delux samples to your door every month. Birchbox is only $10 per month and ships free. You can gift a monthly subscription or a gift card for the beauty junkie in your life (or for yourself too…).
A Custom Dress from Bow & Drape
Though you may not be able to get it in time for Christmas, a custom-designed dress from Bow & Drape makes a unique gift for the fashionista in your life. Bow & Drape provides the silhouette and you pick the color, length, sleeves, and any other trims you want to add. Bow & Drape also offers a “Fit Kit” that is mailed to you and comes with dressmaking tools that give you an idea of the sizes and fabrics that the company uses–so you get the right fit no matter what.
Grace: A Memoir
Legendary and long-time Vogue creative director Grace Coddington recently released her memoir, detailing her fashion career from her start as a model in London to her days now at Vogue, where she’s known for her extreme, fantastical, and always beautiful photo shoots. A great look into the gilded walls of fashion and Vogue from one of its most respected and iconic insiders.
Holiday Gift Guide…for Those Who You Don’t Know What to Get
If all else fails, most everyone appreciates a good bottle of hooch. Willett Straight Rye Whisky is an affordable ($36), yet respectable bottle of good whisky. Distilled by the Willett family, famous for their brandy and bourbon production, this Straight Rye Whisky has been aged for four years in white oak and has aromas of spice, vanilla, caramel, and butterscotch. Perfect straight up, with some water, or mixed as an old-fashioned.
