We all have that one friend that is fashion-crazed. This makes them the easiest person to buy gifts from, as they’re always chasing unique fashion pieces. However, the staycation season has made us re-evaluate our fashion preferences, and you might be at the loss of what your beloved fashionista likes now.
Don’t worry - we have put together a small list of a few timeless gift ideas she will love. Even without you needing to guess what’s her current fashion obsession.
8 Gift Ideas for a Sophisticated Fashionista
A Golden Bracelet
Since ancient times, gold has been associated with wealth and luxury. Golden accessories are notably easy to match and come in a variety of styles. A golden bracelet is a particularly interesting accessory that makes a perfect gift.
Whether the fashion lover you’re buying for is a fan of statement pieces or subtle, minimalistic jewellery - you’re covered. Chunky golden bangles from Jacquemus and massive golden chain bracelets from Bottega Veneta are made to be gifted.
More humble in their approach, Aliita golden chain bracelets with diamonds, on the other hand, are just as luxurious. At the end of the day, no matter what style of a bracelet you choose, a golden accessory will make any fashionista gleeful.
A Timeless Classic Designer Bag
No fashion lover can resist a classic designer bag - period. The hint is already in the name. The timelessness and versatility of globally recognised designs is particularly valued in fashion circles.
Such would be Prada’s Cleo Bag, Fendi’s Baguette Bag and, of course, Dior’s Lady Dior. The list of classic bags is longer and stretches across many big names - you would need to check a couple of lists to figure out which style would suit your fashionista the best.
Due to these designer bags being so popular and loved all over the world, most come in different colours and prints. Therefore there’s certainly something you can surprise your loved one: you just need to look!
A Pair of Cosy Socks
Even prior to being locked up in our houses and spending a year wearing loungewear, everyone has always loved cosy socks. Associated with comfort and warmth, they make a gift one simply cannot go wrong with.
Our choice when looking for snuggly feet huggers falls on Falke’s wool-blend socks and the cashmere ones from Johnstons of Elgin. It’s a rather common knowledge that while socks are something that’s worn on a day-to-day basis and is therefore in need of frequent replacement, it’s one of the best investments.
If you’re sceptical about purchasing a high cost pair of socks as a gift - dismiss your doubts. Anyone who's ever worn luxury socks has never reverted back, and the receiver of this gift will be grateful beyond words.
A Beauty Set
A bundle of beauty items is one gift that’s 100% fool-proof. And it gives you plenty of freedom to play around with. Even if the person you’re looking for a gift for doesn’t wear make-up, a beauty set can contain hair care items, or maybe some bits and bobs to enhance a home spa experience.
There are a lot of pre-curated beauty sets from big names such as Christian Louboutin and Charlotte Tilbury, but you’re not tied to them at all. The beauty of this gift is that it can be very thoughtful and individualised: you can make a custom bundle yourself.
Based on your beloved fashionista’s tastes and preferences, you can hand pick only the products she’ll love. You can even go an extra mile and customise the presentation of a gift yourself. Why not look around our beauty section for inspiration?
A Little Something for the House
If you’re dealing with a true fashionista, you already know that to her, fashion doesn’t end with looks. It involves the entirety of her life, including work and home environments.
If they have a sophisticated taste for house decorations, designers such as Anissa Kermiche have ranges of items that would add a touch of chic to a room. Some fashionistas are also stationary addicts - why not delight them with something from Thom Browne’s collection?
Finally, everyone loves cushions and no one can get enough of them. Etro’s embroidered cushions take that obsession to a new level. There’s no hit or miss situation here - success only.
Although not many people seem to use cash nowadays, a good quality wallet has always been a statement piece. Any elegant lady will always have one to prove her sophistication, even if it’s for storing cards only.
When it comes to wallets, you want to stay with established labels that guarantee quality. Balenciaga, Prada and Miu Miu are our top choices. Similarly to bags, there are certain classic designs that you simply cannot go wrong with.
A Luxurious Dressing Gown
Whether it is a fuzzy, compy gown or a luxurious silky robe- no fashionista can resist one. With the all time rise of loungewear popularity, this is a particularly good gift that will certainly be used.
For a warm and cosy option, we suggest looking at UGG, the specialists of comfort. More alluring styles can be found at Gilda & Pearl’s range. Overall, you will end up delighting a fashion lover with something that is just as pretty as it is useful.
A Bottle Fragrance She Loves
Depending on how deep your relationship is, you most likely know what perfume your friend wears. There’s no gift more thoughtful and personal than a bottle of a smell she associates herself with.
If you like the idea but are not sure what brand she wears, try asking her family members. It’s much easier for them to find out and relay the information to you than it would be to try and fish it out on your own.
Either way, a fragrance of one’s choice never fails to make them happy. If you’re already aware of what you’re looking for, we suggest you head straight to our perfume section.
Anything that’s timeless in fashion - is timeless as a gift. The very idea of giving someone a gift is to make them happy by being thoughtful and relevant. And, if your present falls into the category of timeless, it will always bring joy to the receiver.
While fashionistas might be easy to buy for, their constant change in preferences can be difficult to adjust to. If that’s what happened, just take a quick glance at this page from time to time and you will know exactly what to get them.
