Stylish Gifts
Stylish gifts galore. Courtesy of Zara

You know you've won the gifting game when your present elicits surprise and delight. When it shows you've been paying attention. When you see the giftee actually using it and not allowing it to gather dust in a closet somewhere.

So how do you achieve that with the style maven in your life? The one known for their exquisite taste, the person you usually turn to for trend updates, a second clothes-pinion? Our advice is to stick with fashion gifts that fall under one of three categories: elevated basics (like a great winter knit or pop-of-color scarf), standout accessories (eternally trending Tabis, sparkly earrings) and chic, neutral pieces that exemplify current trends (denim maxis, high-shine tights).
