No matter what she says, she’s always the hardest to shop for. What to get the girl who has everything? Follow the ABCs of gift giving.
Snag her a cover-up that’s as unique as she is: a custom-made Nehru jacket by Shelley Chhabra Bridal (2259 Massachusetts Avenue, Porter Square; 617-901-0213). The Indian designer culls raw silk, crepe silk, and brocade for each delicately embroidered piece. Help your lady organize that life of hers with an Ani bag, now designed exclusively for Luna Boston (205 Newbury Street; 866-910-3900).
Make her feel mah-velous. Chanel (5 Newbury Street; 617-859-0055) carries costume jewelry (starting at $150), including precious cocktail rings for every occasion. Local designer Chloe Sachs (Luxe at Mohr & McPherson, 356 Boylston Street; 617-421-9500) scours far and away for each hand-picked stone in her vibrant mix of accessories.
Chic and Charitable
Sure, she complains about her apartment (you would too if your walls were bare). Give her interior a hand with a gift card for one or two hours with the design darlings at Jace Interiors (617-435-2240). Or eliminate gifts altogether and put her name on a donation to The Women’s Lunch Place (67 Newbury Street; 617-267-1722), which will help homeless women find food and sanctuary.
