Good evening and thank you for dropping in for the final 2021 Christmas Gift Idea series! Tonight we’re talking about the really fun things – the things that sparkle and shine and of course, cost a pretty penny! If there ever were a time to splurge, it’s Christmas but don’t be afraid to splash the cash for one of these items – you’ll get your money’s worth over the decades that she’ll use them, and the decades that her daughters will use these heirloom items. You know I’m a shoes girl, so naturally I put the two most coveted pair of pumps on this luxury Christmas gift edit – they’re at the top of my list, too! Speaking of family heirlooms, these jewels have been worn and loved by some of the most elegant women in our time and can be passed down through the generations. Keep scrolling for my recommendations for your luxury lover and happy gifting!
Jimmy Choo heels – These heels have been at the top of my shoe wish list for years for their versatility in dressing up casual daytime outfits, and adding a tasteful, albeit stunning amount of sparkle to eveningwear. The gift of these shoes is the gift of always having the perfect pair of shoes to finish every outfit, which is priceless!
Van Cleef & Arpels Alhambra bracelet, earrings, and necklace – First debuted in 1968, the Alhambra line of demi-fine floral-inspired pieces from Van Cleef & Arpels is one of the most instantly recognizable designs of the esteemed French fine jewelry house. Favored by Princess Grace of Monaco and almost every woman who lays eyes on it since it’s creation, this gift is sure to be a showstopper! Gift the earrings, necklace, and bracelet as a set, or add a new piece to her collection each year.
Saint Laurent bag – This classic quilted style is large enough to handle everything she needs, and most of the things the little ones ask her to carry! Both elegant and practical, this bag from Saint Laurent is a hero piece that she will reach for daily. Pick a color other than black, like this beige, to go with every outfit, through every season.
Saloni velvet bow dress – I think this is going to be the most popular Christmas dress from here until eternity – fashionistas just can’t get enough of it! It’s flattering on every body and just so elegantly festive. Each year they change it up a little bit – the color, or the bow embellishment – but the classic black velvet with original bow detailing is what I would recommend.
Cashmere coat – The vintage style with the fur collar is what really stands out about this coat. Style notes taken from the golden era of Old Hollywood, this timeless coat in long-lasting cashmere is the perfect gift for any lady who appreciates style and functionality rolled into one.
Statement headband – A piece from this designer is on every grandmillennial gal’s wish list – if she’s hard to shop for, this just may be your golden ticket item. I don’t think you’ll find a woman who doesn’t go weak in the knees over big bows and French blue!
Burberry scarf – Burberry plaid will never lose its appeal – always refined, always making a statement, and always considered a classic! This beautiful neutral palette is just gorgeous and will match with everything while adding a touch of English sophistication.
Manolo Blahnik Hangisi pumps – Another fashion girl favorite is the Hangisi. They come in a full spectrum of colors and a handful of fabric options; this pink is new this year and it’s my favorite color yet. I believe the show Sex and the City popularized these pumps but I have never watched that show so… anyway, whether she’s a SATC fan, fashion lover, shoe collector, or just needs a fancy pair of shoes for an upcoming event, these glamorous heels are a winner!
