If you haven’t bought gifts by now, your only chances are local stores as the ground transportation has basically slowed down so much that it can take weeks for something to arrive. Shop local, support local! Here’s our beautiful and practical gifts for the women, affordable and more significantly, special items she’ll fa-la-la-love, I guarantee there’s at least one thing here you’ll love to wrap up for her.
Next best thing to a big warm hug would be this stylish and warm vest from Snappy Gator. Great for paddle, tennis or hiking your dog. Cute with workout leggings but chic enough to be worn with white shirt and jeans. – this one is a no brainer. Comes in black and light blue camo. I also loved a cashmere sweater which has Love Wins embroidered on it. They’ll wrap the gifts and run it out to curbside for you. $178 Phone: 203.761.773
I’ve played tennis off and on for two years and I am not alone, it’s an increasingly popular sport and since Covid even more so – tennis racquets sales have doubled. My husband doesn’t know this but he is gifting me this monogrammed Oliver Thomas tennis bag from Signature Style. It comes in black, green camo, blue camo, and gunmetal. $175 includes monogramming. www.signaturestyleshop.com
There’s nothing more relaxing and stress reducing than a soothing massage by Amy Tobey at Amy’s Healing Arts. She is also incredibly great at working on overworked muscles and sprains. I wouldn’t mind receiving a gift certificate for a massage there. Wouldn’t mind at all. $100 for an hour. Gift cards available at www.amyshealingarts.com
A few years ago my bestie gifted me a beautiful photo of my girls that I framed and still treasure. I also received a cute photo ornament of my puppy! Tiffany Shelton from RSKS Photography takes absolutely stunning photos and she is currently running a holiday 20 minute special for 5 digital images for $150. https://rsksphotography.com I would get them printed (at home or at CVS) and pair with these chic faux crocodile frames from the Open House Gift Shop, prices vary from $55-$95. http://openhousegiftshop.com/
Nod Hill Soaps has an array of goodies, my favorites are her fragrance diffusers (I have two dogs and would love for the house to smell nice, thank you) and lotions. My fave scents combos are Nantucket Breeze (smells like summer, the kind you have in Nantucket), Oranges and Roses (holiday-esque) and White tea and Jasmine (sophisticated Park Avenue vibe). You can online order and do a quick pickup from her store across from CVS. Holiday gift box including soap, lotion and bath salts $58. https://www.nodhillsoapwiltonct.com
I’ve been really into layering oversized sweaters and cardigans this winter as I am always cold. This cute poncho from the Local Soul would be great for all your Zoom calls, throw it over anything really and you’ll look pulled together in 2 min flat. Loved the soft warm color and it comes in grey also. $65 https://localsoulwilton.com
I also liked these cute booties and those shearling sneakers!
