Sure, holidays are about spending time with family and friends. But when all’s said and done, everyone wants in on the presents. Lucky be the lady recipient of these delightful gifts.
If her closet could talk, it’d say, “Gimme.”
Luxury Garage Sale had us at hello. Then it had us at Deco dog pin (and again at vintage Bottega Veneta). Give her legs some glam with a pair of polka-dot tights. Artist Paul Cowan’s Chicago scarf (pictured) will make the rest of her wardrobe jealous, though Natalia Brilli’s stunning leather accessories collection (available at Robin Richman, 2108 North Damen Avenue, at Charleston Street; 773-278-6150) will give the whole lot a run for its money.
She’s so cute you could eat her.
Woo your food-loving gal with breakfast in bed. Whip up a batch of pancakes with Buckshot Sonny’s griddle cakes mix. Slather with Indy favorite Burton’s new bourbon- or rum-infused syrups (both available for preorder). And a morning cocktail tastes even better served in a tumbler with old-time charm. Local candy company Sea + Cane sates her sweet tooth with a holiday set (candies disguised as meats and cheeses in a wooden gift box).
She makes her house a home.
She dazzles in the kitchen; she deserves a cookbook set to match her zeal. A limited-edition Audrey Hepburn print makes those walls sing; this painting makes them talk. Why forget gardens in the winter? Make everyone green with envy with a tub o’ succulents. And any dame with a beating heart would fawn over yarn animals.
Want more ideas? We have more gifts for girls than you have names on your shopping list.
