Holiday Gift Guide, Pt. 2: Leave No Present Behind

We know, we know – your friends can’t be boxed into such strict categories.  The one that constantly redecorates is also a multifaceted chef and traveler!  We know they are all unique individuals, but if you really think about it,  they probably either have a penchant for wearing clothes, for being male, or for wearing very little clothing at all… Now, you’ll know what to get each of them for Christmas:

For your fashion savviest friend: If their purse consistently looks more like a carry-on, they’ll swoon over Alexander Wang’s new Mixed Material Shopper.  If she’s more of a jewelry lover, look no further than Charm and Chain – we currently covet the Glenda Cuff and the Peace at Last Necklace.  If they really do have everything straight from the runways, a smart fashionista will shed a single tear when she sees the new book chronicling the story of Maison Martin Margiela.

For men, because they need gifts, too: Don’t just get him a tie and call it a day.   Everything from a technologically advanced condom dispenser to black cashmere socks can be obtained from Alpha Gear’s online shop – trust them, they know what men want.  If you’re hoping to score something for a man with a distinguished sense of humor, these Mustache cuff links take the cake.  In case this particular guy needs some assistance in the dressing-themselves department, a jaunt to Confederacy’s online shop is in order – their collaboration with Albert Hammond Jr. on very chic (if not slightly hipster) suits will make your man look debonair, in the best sense of the word.

For the saucy minx: Warning: Gifting lingerie is not appropriate for the following people: Mothers-in-law, very young siblings, your boss’s wife (although, come to think of it…).  Now, any other woman still on your list will appreciate slipping into a Maitre’D Slip, a Shazam Demi Bra, or something even saucier (a Hornette Playsuite, anyone?) from Agent Provocateur.  Their gifts are the kind that keep on giving.
