There are some fathers out there who have everything. And that’s a tough problem to have come Father’s Day, but fear not offspring of Old Sports everywhere. We’ve done some digging for dads and with the shopping list below, you can skip the Sports Authority and secure gifts to the tune of Chanel, Louis Vuitton, and Gucci. If these luxurious sporting goods aren’t to his liking, feel free to send them our way.
Your mom is a superstar. She was never squeamish when you skinned your knee. She sent you cards to heal a broken heart (or just because). She gave you her secret recipes and secrets to success, and showed you how to be the awesome lady you are. Seems pretty obvious that your mama dearest likes to lend a helping hand, so what better way to show you appreciate all she does, than by giving her a gift that gives back to women around the world?
There’s no doubt that if you’ve waited this long to get your gifts (it happens), the pickings will be slim. But don’t despair! We’ve rounded up five electronic gift cards that you can still get right now and that your loved ones will enjoy. Just pick your favorite, click the link, and gift away — the recipient will get the card by e-mail.
Don’t worry: you can still buy awesome gifts for everyone on your list — even when you’re on the way (okay fine, running late) to the holiday party. From coffee sets to sequined accessories to lottery tickets, we’ve got the best last minute gifts that you can buy everywhere and won’t be embarrassed about giving.
It’s the perfect time of the year to give back to that friend who’s always baking you cookies and making delicious dinners! Click through the gallery for cool kitchen supplies that s/he probably doesn’t have already, at all price points.
Amidst all the rush to get the big gifts taken care of, it’s easy to forget about filling your loved ones’ stockings. So to save you from having to stuff stockings with random drugstore items that no one actually wants, we’ve rounded up some small presents that are both inexpensive and unique.
Sure, giving a DVD box set or poster is great, but where’s the fun in that? Instead, gift your pop culture-obsessed friends something truly meaningful but, more importantly, hilarious. From the scorpion bomber jacket that
our boyfriend Ryan Gosling wore in Drive to a “Central Perk”-logoed coffee mug, we’ve got everything a pop culture fan would be proud to own.
So you’re cramming all of your shopping into the weekend before the big day. It’s cool, we don’t judge. This probably means you’ll want to get it all done in one fell swoop, which, as much as you may dread it, is easiest to do in a mall. So brace yourself for the crowds and come prepared. To get you started, we’ve rounded up seven sure bets from big time retailers. This is not the time to go without a game plan.
We’ll attest to the fact that it’s really hard to shop for our friends who love to look cute and comfy at the same time. And that’s where cozy, yet refined pieces come in handy. Sequined flowy dresses, relaxed tops, and broken-in trousers all have that same casual lux feel that your friends — and you! — will still look awesome in after one too many mini-quiches.
Even if you are a die-hard delivery devotee, we’ll bet there’s someone on your list this year whose epicurean tastes are, shall we say, a tad more refined than that. Whether you’re shopping for the hostess with the mostess or your sweet-toothed friend, we’ve got a gift that they — and their kitchen — are sure to love. And who knows? Maybe you’ll be invited over for a home-cooked meal sometime soon.
The holidays are traditionally a time of giving, but they can just as easily turn into a time of plain ol’ selfishness and materialism. So why not do something different this year and give a gift that keeps on giving by supporting a worthwhile charity? And you won’t have to sacrifice style, of course — even without the altruistic bonus, these presents would be awesome!
We don’t know about you, but every year we have our real Christmas list, and then we have our Christmas list, the contents of which would probably rival the ridiculous requests in “Santa Baby”. This list is one of the latter. From classic, understated luxury to the more outlandish, these presents are the stuff of fantasy. Click through the gallery, organized from least to most expensive, and tell us which gifts you’re dreaming of this year!
Try as we might, we never seem to have the easiest time shopping for the people on our list with a Y-chromosome. So this year, we vowed to take some of the stress out of the holidays by tracking down some great gifts for the guys (some of which we’d be more than happy to steal for ourselves). Hipster brother? Music loving boyfriend? Grill master dad? We’ve got your boys taken care of.
We love seeing happy faces on our family and friends when we give them gifts, and thanks to cool new subscription programs, we can experience that same joy month after month after month. But these aren’t your average Cheese of the Month Clubs; these boxes are actually filled with awesome products catered to the receivers’ own personal style. From monthly subscriptions for beauty to sunglasses and even undies, these really are the gifts that keep on giving.
Buying for our eco-friendly friends isn’t always the easiest thing in the world. Between the misleading marketing claims to the not-so-pretty designs, we’ll be the first ones to admit that socially responsible shopping is a sport. That’s why we went ahead and did all the hard work for you, and rounded up the perfect gifts that were created from either organic, all-natural, or recycled materials.
Traveling during the holidays can be pretty stressful, but our handy picks will make it little bit easier and a lot more stylish. Of course, we can’t buy all our travel-obsessed friends round-trip tickets to exotic getaways, but we’ve got the next best thing: from statement making carryalls to colorful passport covers, here are the goods that every jet setter needs.
There’s nothing better than two brands you love teaming up to make something extra special. These are gifts that your friends, family, and loved ones would truly love to get! Click through the gallery below for fun, functional gifts in every price range from collaborations like high-end Frye for Coach and super-popular Target x Neiman Marcus.
Here at Styleite, we like to buy local as much as possible. So we’ve rounded up of some the coolest things that money can buy, all made right here in NYC no more than a subway ride away from our Manhattan office building.
We love splurging on our besties every now and then, but sometimes, it’s just not in the budget to spend a lot on one person during the holidays. That’s where these awesome beauty gift sets come in. From Bliss to Tarte to Stila, give your friends the gift of their favorite brand with a wallet-friendly package that looks way more expensive than $15. Trust us, your friends will never know!
It’s party time! Well, party season at least. And if you’re like us, that means you’re in need of some handy housewares to bestow on your gracious hosts at upcoming fêtes. Sure, a bottle of wine is always appreciated, but a personal touch goes a long way, and we think your stylish friends will love these hand-picked tokens of appreciation.
