Let’s face it, we’re all super busy and the thought of shopping during the holiday season may seem a bit stressful and much more of a drag. Luckily for us that live in the South Bay, there’s Santana Row. A perfect place to stroll, dine and make a day out of your shopping. For those of you rebellious holiday shoppers out there that like to do things the last minute, here are a few stores that you must check out. Calypso St. Barth, C Wonder, Madewell and Scotch & Soda are among the fabulous new names that you’ll see at the row.
I personally stopped by the stores today and picked out some fun last minute gifts which will make that special someone (or yourself) happy.
CALYPSO ST. BARTH
Calypso St. Barth has a beautiful assortment of luxury resort wear and fun, sparkly pieces. These 3 three items I selected are perfect for the holidays with a fragrance that will last all year. The Bruni Leopard Jacket has the ever so popular leopard print and sequin embellishments that will have her looking stunning for any occasion. The Fur Funnel feels amazing and can be used as a scarf, but I would personally use it as hand warmers. The Bellini eau de toilette leaves a sweet, yet subtle scent. Perfect for the gal who is adjusting to wearing perfumes. SALE ALERT – additional 30% off all sale items in store.
C Wonder is such a fun and colorful store, complete with almost everything for your home, your wardrobe and of course, eye catching baubles. These 3 beauties I selected are ones that can be used anywhere. The Wide Enamel Initial Bangle is new and just as playful as the original initial cuff. This gift is great for everyone on your list. The Printed Striped Pouch is definitely eye catching and surely makes a statement with anyone’s outfit. The Ikat Tea for One set is a perfect gift for the gal who loves to have her tea and look great doing so. SALE ALERT – Right now C Wonder is offering 30% off if you purchase 3 or more jewelry pieces in store.
If the person you’re shopping for is simple and not trendy, Madewell is the perfect place to shop. These 3 pieces I selected are great accessories for the winter and one gadget device that will keep your phones charged. The Diamond Dot 1937 Tights are fun, classic and can be worn with dresses and skirts. The Triple C iBoost Backup Battery is something that anyone with an iPhone or device should have in stow. I’m constantly on the phone and find myself in a bind when my phone is almost out of juice. The Tri Turn scarf is great because it’s monochrome, which means it will never go out style, and I think just about anyone can wear it!
SCOTCH & SODA
For the guy on your list, Scotch & Soda is definitely the place to shop, because even he should be out and about and styling, right? The Crocodile Leather Belt is timeless, yet edgy at the same time. And because the weather feels much colder than normal here in NorCal, he must have a pair of Gloves in Leather & Wool to add a sleek accessory to his wardrobe. Last but not least, the Diamond Quilted Jacket with Corduroy Collar is a must in his closet. It’s warm, textured and gives a slight hint of color to his wardrobe. SALE ALERT – Almost everything in the store is 30-40% off.
Of course, if you’re in a pinch and don’t have much time to shop, the Santana Row gift card is the perfect gift to give. For more information on store hours, restaurants, listing of stores, etc., visit www.santanarow.com
