Present Situation

Dear Sirs: Ever notice how the holidays affect your little sugarplum? She acts all giddy, blushes spontaneously, hums while reading the paper — before coffee.

Clearly, she’s in love. Here’s what she’s fallen for this holiday season (besides you, of course).

So the lady likes luxe. Slide her pedicured feet into crystal-and-gold beaded Rafé pumps at Moxie (73 Charles Street, between Mt. Vernon and Pinckney Streets; 617-557-9991). Forget the matching clutch and she will pout. Hit Wish (49 Charles Street, between Chestnut and Mt. Vernon Streets; 617-227-4441) for a Vince cashmere poncho, or raid Santa Maria Novella for its collection of hand creams and soaps at Louis Boston (234 Berkeley Street, between Boylston and Newbury Streets; 617-262-6100).

More the fast-paced type, is she? The leather day planners (in glossy espresso or orange) and Kimono pens at Cross (0 Brattle Street; 617-868-7020) will keep your sweetie organized. Save her time by signing her up for Gretta Luxe’s (94 Central Street; 781-237-7010) jeans-of-the-month club. For tunes on the run, get her Bang and Olufsen’s impressive BeoSound 2 digital music player (30 Newbury Street, between Arlington and Berkley Streets; 617-262-4949). Heck, splurge on a whole home system — that’ll keep her at home.

Feeling lazy? The Fifth Avenue Club, Saks’s by-appointment personal shopping service (The Prudential Center, 800 Boylston Street; 617-262-7531), does the legwork — comparing color swatches, analyzing cashmere blends, boxing up packages — for you.
