Only three more business days until Christmas weekend. Time to run to a nearby store or take advantage of Amazon Prime's 2-day free shipping. I've put together a gift list with items that should be easily accessible and that most of the adult women in your life will appreciate. Now, get crackin'.
1. Diptyque Paris Candle $62
These fancy candles fill an entire home with their elegant scents and the wax burns evenly. Even if she doesn't know about Diptyque Paris already, she's guaranteed to love it. Sold at Nordstrom, Bloomingdale's and Saks Fifth Avenue.
2. Coffee or Lunch Gift Card
If you know where she stops for her morning coffee or her go-to spot for soup and salad, make the next few on you.
8. Madewell Medium Leather Tote $158
Made of genuine leather and large enough to fit her laptop and everything else she hauls around, this tote is the perfect everyday carry-all. It's both fashionable and functional.
10. Leather Cord Holder Set $20
Genuine leather cord keepers snap those cords and earphones into neat bundles.
12. Marble Cheese Boards $24 - $40
Chic serving boards for the woman who loves to entertain. Two sizes available at Williams Sonoma - both boards together and a bottle of wine will make for a thoughtful gift.
13. Soft Knit Pajama Set $55
My mom has a long tradition of giving everybody in the family pajamas for Christmas. I love to sleep so naturally I love this tradition. I own this soft cotton knit pajama set from J.Crew and I highly recommend.
14. Velvet Clutch Bag $39
Velvet is hot this winter in womenswear and a Nordstrom tassled clutch is the perfect velvet accent.
15. D-Ring Earrings $148
Unique and fun, these Anthropologie 14k gold-filled deco earrings are made for the funky and fashionable.
16. Buffalo Plaid Cape-Scarf $70
So versatile, she can wear it to travel home for the holidays or just to keep warm on the couch, this J.Crew cape-scarf-wrap is both cozy and tasteful.
18. A New Experience
Gifting an experience is gifting a memory you will share forever. Tickets to a show, an afternoon sail or even bungee jumping (if she's into that) are worth more than any one item.
I personally recommend an EatWith dinner - foodie-centric group dinners hosted by excellent chefs in most cities around the world. I've done it and loved it - I ate the best food, drank specially-made cocktails and imported beer and had interesting conversations with several really cool people.
