Ah, December. It’s more than just an excuse to wash down latkes with eggnog. ’Tis the season for giving generously to all the great ladies in your life.
For the Grand Dame-in-Training
Dahling will adore J.P. & Mattie’s elegant, chunky necklaces and Jennifer Behr’s fancy, wide-lace head wraps (Milk, 8209 West 3rd Street, between Harper & La Jolla Avenues; 323-951-0330). Utopia Boxes at Jonathan Adler (8125 Melrose Avenue, at North Kilkea Drive; 323-658-8390) are also sure to delight.
For the Outward Bound
How to say thanks for your perpetual plus-one status? With Apothia’s Velvet Rope candle (Fred Segal, 8118 Melrose Avenue, at Kilkea Drive; 323-651-0239) and the brand new Signature ring from White Trash Charms (1951 Hillhurst Avenue, at Clarissa Avenue, Los Feliz; 323-666-9585). And she’ll likely need Jurlique’s Herbal Recovery Gel (358 North Beverly Drive, between Brighton and Dayton Ways, Beverly Hills; 310-285-9820), the ultimate morning-after moisturizer.
For the Home Girl
Nesters will read (and cook) Recipes: A Collection for the Modern Cook from cover to cover. Especially if they’re cozy in Puella loungewear (Barneys New York, 9570 Wilshire Boulevard, at South Camden Drive, Beverly Hills; 310-276-4400) and sipping tea from a new Cath Kidston mug (Brentwood Country Mart, 225 26th Street, suite 33, at San Vicente Boulevard, Santa Monica; 310-451-6727).
For the Nine-to-Fiver
The all-work-and-no-play scenario just won’t do. Brighten the working girl’s day with fun notebooks from Carrot & Stick Press, a classic blue purse pen from Tiffany (68 West Colorado Boulevard, between South Delacey and North Fair Oaks Avenues, Pasadena; 626-793-7424), or Bird in Hand’s reincarnated briefcase.
For the Urban Folkster
Earthy girls aren’t easy, but they’ll undoubtedly dig Amy Keller’s leather cuff with turquoise and silver (Lost & Found, 6320 Yucca Street, at Vine Street, Hollywood; 323-856-5872), hand-thrown pottery by Victoria Morris (Zelen, 8055 Beverly Boulevard, between Crescent Heights Boulevard and Laurel Avenue, West Hollywood; 323-658-6756), or hand embroidered Indian bedspreads from Cottage Art (18619 Pioneer Blvd., b/t 186th & 187th Sts., Artesia, 562-924-6268).
And Last, but Certainly Not Least, You
