Get your shopping shoes on, stunners! It’s that time of year where some of us who have yet completed our holiday shopping will come out in full force to get the last minute items for our special people! And as always, being that Santana Row is what I consider to be a great “one stop shop” location, I have made my fabulous selections of gift ideas to help you get in and out!
Gifts for Her
This year, make sure you have her covered with the latest essentials that she can use on a regular basis and why not throw a gift that will help calm the craziness of the holiday season as well? Open cardigans are always a great thing to have handy, especially with our unpredictable but charming California weather. The Lenzetta Fringe Trim Linen Cardigan is something that she can carry in her tote bag, or keep in her closet all year round – find it at Calypso St. Barth (located next to Tesla). Make sure her hair is always looking stylish either she wears it straight or wavy with drybar’s (located across from Santana Row Park) Tress Press Digital Styling Iron. Whether she’s on the go or likes to have an array of fragrance at her fingertips, philosophy’s Amazing Grace and Pure Grace Travel Set is makes the perfect gift..find it at Sephora (next to Sugarfina)! Having something on display that not only sparkles but tells the time can keep her on track with her day. This gorgeous Perfume Table Clock from Z Gallerie (located across from the water fountain) makes the perfect gift. For the special “bag lady” in your life, the Leighton Backpack from Vera Bradley (located next to H&M) will knock her socks off. It’s the perfect bag for the mom, student or for someone who loves to have their hands free for carrying other things!
Gifts for Him
Alright…who’s the got the guy who can’t ever figure out what he needs but you know you have him covered? I do…I do! This year, get him something that he’ll actually wear and use. Some guys prefer not to wear heavy clothes but want something that can keep them warm yet be comfortable in. The Merino Henley from Bonobos (located next to Paper Source) will have him looking casual with this versatile sweater that he can wear with slacks or jeans. For the guy who likes to keep his plastics and cash in order, the Carbon Fiber Double Billfold wallet from Tumi (located next to Tesla), will make a great gift for him. Who doesn’t love coffee? Peet’s (located across from the Movie Theatre) Gift Card makes the perfect gift for him while he’s on the go and needs a little pick me up to drink or a snack to eat before heading to the office. Ted Baker’s (across from the water fountain) KIING Leather Brogue Sneaker will have him looking stylish for any casual occasion. Last but not least, make sure to gift him a pair of lulu lemon’s Lock Em Down Trunks…he’ll thank you for them…trust me!
Gifts for the Host / Hostess
During the holidays, we always have that family member or friend that loves to host gatherings and make everyone feel right at home. Why not thank them for their kind hospitality with these great gifts that show just how much you appreciate them and their hard work during the holidays? First off…rather than showing up empty handed to a party, bring something sweet that everyone can enjoy as well. Kara’s Cupcakes (located a couple doors down from Starbucks) as an array of flavors to suit your fancy. Every host/hostess deserves a new item to add to their serving dishes, especially during the holidays. This beautiful Handmade Glass Mod Cheeseboard from Annie Glass (located next to Left Bank Restaurant) will make a great addition to their serving collection. And last but not least…we can’t forget the bubblies! Make sure to visit the Vintage Wine Merchants (located next to the water fountain) and grab a bottle (or 2) from their champagne selection and celebrate the holidays with your friends and toast to a new year.
