Heartfelt Accessories - the we heart this gift guide

Heartfelt Accessories – the we heart this gift guide

Picking gifts for your fashionista friends during the holiday season can be daunting. My advice: avoid buying an article of clothing (too many choices that could be dealbreakers: size, fit, materials, color) and go for the accessories! Even if you veer slightly off the recipients path, they are more likely to give it a chance and wear it when it’s accessory sized.

In case you don’t notice, I’ve got a theme this holiday season – love. So here are 4 things I heart right now and would love to give or receive.

1. Comme des Garcons Low-Top Canvas Sneakers ($100)
I live in classic canvas sneakers and who doesn’t want something high end? These Comme des Garcons low top sneakers are perfectly quirky, classic and won’t break the bank.

2. With All My Heart Tote ($49.99)
Every girl needs a tote for weekends, travel, to toss her gym clothes in. Why not give one that lets them know that you love them…with all your heart?

3. Betsey Johnson Clear Heart Necklace ($45.00)
I’m always looking for a new necklace or a great statement piece. This Betsey Johnson heart necklace will go with everything and it’s not too big or too small.

4. MAC Plushglass in ‘I Heart You’ ($18.50)
Because I love beauty so much, I’m notorious for giving makeup as a gift. I especially love picking out colors my girlfriends might not purchase (or even think of using it) but I know they would definitely look great wearing.

A lavender lip gloss is one of my very favorite little presents. The shade can can be (rather surprisingly) universally flattering. Plus, ‘I Heart You’ is a perfect name to pick for the season (and this guide).

Surprise your fashionable friend with this little gloss for a stocking stuffer or gift – you’ll both be happy with the results!

Happy Holidays everyone!

    I love those sneakers! Cute choices! I think it’s awesome when a beauty product lover hand picks (strategically of course) makeup for their friends. It’s risky but when done right it’s super awesome!

      Stef, they come in black too! Although I kind of love how white/off white Converse look after they’ve been roughed up a bit. My favorite performer Donald Glover had them on in concert and they’ve kind of been on my wish list ever since.

      I’m with you @Stef , those shoes would be dirty before I left the house, haha! I do like how white converse look when they’re well loved, but it’s a fine line between being fashionable and just scrubby. Sadly for me, I tend to fall towards scrubby when wearing dirty shoes! Good to know they come in black. :)
