My Holiday Gift Guide: 5 Cool Presents for the Ladies
A record player from Crosley. This portable, briefcase-style record player features built-in stereo speakers and also comes in acid pink, tangerine, and royal blue. Priced at $90, it's an affordable and impressive gift for a music lover.
A sweater from Madewell. Girls go gaga for Madewell (which also owns J.Crew but prices its Madewell pieces slightly lower), especially their patterned pullovers. This one is their Counting Sheep sweater, but plenty of other animals figure into their designs, too.
An olive tree from Nudo Italia. This is a much tastier, if less philanthropic, gift option than that adopt a heifer program or any of the orphan adoption programs out there. Because in adopting an olive tree for a friend, you're guaranteeing that they get three tins of delicious olive oil straight from their very own Italian olive tree. Starting at $49.
Bird candle holders from CB2: A trio of these tea light candleholders (called "White Chick Candle Holders" and priced at $7.95 each) make a great gift for a client, relative, or casual friend. They work perched down the center of a holiday table, on a bookshelf, mantle or just about any other place your friend pleases.
A life planner from ErinCondren.com. I am told by a trusted source that these personalized life planners--made by L.A.-based designer Erin Condren--are the very best for getting and staying organized all year round. Priced at $50 each, the cost may seem a little high for a planner, but these rank high in durability and come loaded with extra organizational goodies.
Check back soon for my final gift guide--a list of local goods very much worth giving.
