Girls are big dreamers. This holiday season, bring her one step closer to her fantasy self — with help, of course, from DailyCandy’s Gift Guide for Girls.
Bird Lover in an Urban Area
So many buildings, so few birds. Indulge her avian passion with a glass bird sculpture by Finnish artist Oiva Toikka (Apartment Zero, 406 7th Street NW; 202-628-4067), snuggly peacock-printed pajamas by Elizabeth Cotton (Shoe Hive, 115 South Royal Street; 703-548-7105), and a bird clutch by Oovoo.
Big Hostess in a Tiny Space
Give her collapsible vases — flat vinyl sheets that become containers when filled with water (Mayfair Avenue, 731A 8th Street SE; 202-543-2401); a miniature rabbit-, dog-, or cow-shaped creamer (Periwinkle, 3815 Livingston Street NW; 202-364-3076); and tiny bottles of champagne (Rodman’s, 5100 Wisconsin Avenue NW; 202-363-3466).
Would-Be Parisian from Paris, Virginia
Make her feel more, how do you say, chic with the most classic of classic gifts, an Hermès scarf (Hermès, 8075 Leesburg Pike, Vienna; 703-506-4546). And bring her that much closer to authenticity with a gift certificate for French lessons from Alliance Française (2142 Wyoming Avenue NW; 202-234-7911).
High-on-the-Hogger with a Cash-Flow Problem
Glamour-puss cocktail rings, like a citrine and topaz emerald cut beaut, by Brazilian designer Irene Lummertz (Keith Lippert Gallery, 2922 M Street NW; 202-965-9736) add a little sparkle. Stackable boxes of handmade artisanal chocolates (Periwinkle, 3815 Livingston Street NW; 202-364-3676) will make her feel richer.
With presents like those, she can be sure that lady luck is on her side.
