Holiday Gift Guide: For the Woman You Love
“I knew the second I met you that there was something about you I needed. Turns out it wasn’t something about you at all. It was just you.” ––from Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire
If your love and passion runs that deep, no amount of gifting will truly do justice to her and to your love. However, if you are the sentimental type and like to shower tokens as symbols of love, we suggest:
The GlamourGirl: Acne Studios produces their products as responsibly as possible. This is a continuing process between Acne Studios and its manufacturers. Acne Studios is also collaborating with Fair Wear Foundation to ensure that the process is as secure as possible. This Musubi black clutch is inspired by the knot in a traditional Japanese obi sash. Both materials and manufacturing is 100% made in Italy. From Acne – $1200 USD.
The Snow-Lover: London-based cousins Anna Singh and Rachael Wood founded Chinti and Parker in 2009 and use the finest cottons, softest cashmere and lightest merinos, and working with the most respected mills to offer a collection of innovative knit design. This Lightweight Grey Star Scarf, crafted from a luxe wool blend and gently frayed at the edges, will keep her warm in style. From Chinti and Parker – $150 USD.
The Artistic-Fashionista: She combines both qualities, and so does this sweater. Designed by and made from off-cut scraps of Brooklyn Designer Study NY and hand-woven by Brooklyn Weavers Guild at Weaving Hand, we suggest this oversized boxy boatneck sweatshirt with integrated fringe at the front hem, side pockets (of course!) and wrist length sleeves. From Study NY – $295 USD.
The Walker: She walks everywhere, so get her a pair of pair of Zulara pulp boots from Oliberté, a sustainable lifestyle brand supporting workers’ rights in sub-Saharan Africa. The slip-on chelsea with comfort insole with heel stabilizer is made in Ethiopia and Fair Trade Certified™. From Oliberté - $170 CAD. **These boots part of our #magnifecoholidaygiveaway on Instagram**
