‘Tis the season to be jolly! And start shelling out money for Christmas presents. Whether you celebrate the festival or not, it is a joyous time of the year as we are surrounded by festive decorations, stunning Christmas trees and good spirits. You cannot help but be involved in some way or another, especially since the celebration is followed worldwide. We can unanimously agree that one of the most exciting parts of Christmas is the gifts! Apart from birthdays, this is also the time of the year that we can make long lists and shop for all those precious to us. Moreover, we all look forward to the eve or morning of Christmas to unwrap all the presents under the tree or Secret Santa gift exchanges with friends and colleagues.
However fun this may be, it can be challenging to pick the right gift at times, especially if you have no list to follow. While it may seem relatively easier to find presents for girls, the many options available can be overwhelming and leave you confused. To help make this process easier for you, we have put together a gifting guide for the best clothing and accessories you can get your fashion-forward friends! Starting with accessories as they are a trendy, fabulous and easy gift to give. These can be small enough for stocking fillers or large enough as a gift on its own. Additionally, accessories can vary from being pocket-friendly to expensive. So you don’t have to stress about going over-budget!
Give your loved ones the gift of fashion with these 7 accessory gift ideas:
If you are flexible with your budget and want to give your bestie, sister or mom something they can use—a watch tops our list. A watch is a timeless piece of jewellery that everyone needs. This Christmas, choose a classic elegant design in gold plating, refined rose gold or silver finish. These universal finishes are a keepsake and set the tone for any occasion. Moreover, add something special with the watch and give it in a set with a matching bracelet which can be worn together. A functional gift that looks classy and will be cherished forever!
2) Stylish Face Masks
A gift to suit the current times; it also makes for a cute stocking filler! Truth be told, you just can’t have enough face covers since stepping out is now more common. Some of us are also guilty of wanting to match our masks with our OOTDs, and so we spend hours browsing for masks we can add to our collection. They have become an integral part of our lives and our outfits. Hence, gifting someone a fancy fashionable mask is extremely thoughtful! If you have friends or family that enjoy going out or have weddings to attend, a sparkly crystal mask makes for the perfect gift! It will add glamour to any outfit and have you celebrating the festive season in true style while keeping them safe as well.
So what if it’s Christmas, who said we cannot give some desi-inspired gifts as Christmas gifts? Juttis are our favourite fusion footwear as their wear is not limited to Indian attire, they look super cute paired with denim as well. If you need some inspiration, check out the range by Ethical Rani that’s full of bright colours and intricate embroidery. Nonetheless, our favourite part about them is that all of the shoes are vegan and handmade! Add something extra and gift a matching headband to the juttis you choose. Additional matching gifts are always a bonus! Don’t forget, when gifting footwear, ensure you get the shoe size right to avoid the hassle of a return and make the gift instantly usable!
A girl can never have too many accessories! Another cute stocking filler idea is necklaces, bracelets, anklets, rings or a combination of all. These are usually budget-friendly and don’t require you to shell out any extra cash. When picking jewellery, choose a design that is trendy to make the present all the more exciting. For instance, layered necklaces, chain link bracelets, stacked rings are all options you can consider. A statement piece of jewellery can make for a great gift as an entire outfit can be built around it! Also, you can add a personal touch to the gift by engraving the jewellery if possible. If you wish to give a premium gift, opt for gold-plated pieces that are more luxe.
5) Cashmere Scarf
Seasonally appropriate and extremely stylish, you can never go wrong with a cashmere scarf. Ranging from high-street fashion brands to luxury designers such as Burberry, you can take your pick depending on your generosity. Follow a festive theme and opt for a red or green checkered scarf in a thick and comfortable material that can be styled in several ways, which will be a guaranteed winter-winner! Make your gift even more special by monogramming the scarf with the initials of the receiver. This adds a sentimental value to the scarf, making it a memorable gift for years to come.
6) Mask Chain
Small but useful, this little trinket is the perfect extension to a Christmas presents. These custom chains add a nice flair to your conventional masks. Moreover, they add a safety feature by keeping your mask on you and preventing the mishap of placing it on random surfaces. This also helps in the ear dangle issue when you momentarily pull your mask off. A handy gift to help your loved one stay socially distant and safe in style while doubling up as a pretty piece of jewellery as well.
7) Silk Pillowcase & Sleep Mask
For those glam girls, give the gift of beauty sleep! Protecting the eyes, skin and hair, the duo set of a silk sleep mask and pillowcase is a highly rated gift for the festive season. Other than feeling luxurious, the benefits of these are plenty. Silk absorbs significantly less product from your face and creates less friction as well compared to other materials. This assists in anti-ageing, anti-sleep crease and anti-bed-head. There is no way this gift will go unappreciated. Beauty sleep has never looked better!
