Editor’s note: PaperCity’s counting down to the holidays with ultra-curated and distinctive gift guides.
Have one of those impossible to buy for, ultra fashionable types in your life? Buying a standout gift for the most stylish person in your life may seem like a daunting task, but we’ve uncovered an array of gift options full of whimsy and character.
These are the presents that will impress your chicest loved ones.
We’re not talking about the classics. This is about pieces that stand out, cause stares of envy and elevate any ensemble.
This year, let’s make some room under the tree for those extraordinary (extra, extra) items. The holidays offer an opportunity to give your loved ones something they want, not something they need, so why not push the envelope?
Pick out a Rolex from the storied brand’s collaboration with famed Instagram star and art sensastion Ashley Longshore. The custom designed faces resemble Longshore’s standout paintings.
Be ahead of the game by choosing a handbag that Gigi Hadid rocked on the red carpet.
Make every girl’s dream come true with a shoe of the month subscription from Net-a-Porter. Yes, that’s right, a new pair of swanky shoes every month, no questions asked (for $13,000).
Enough of those little black dresses and those go-to black coats. Why not gift a uniquely embroidered or bold patterned scene stealer? Bold Patterns and exotic embellishments are always welcome.
Overwhelmed by choices in the perfume section? Go big with the triple decker gift set of Swarovski encrusted bottles from leading fragrance house Bond No 9 ($16,000). A velvet lined box to store your scent is included.
There is always jewelry, but a boundary pushing bauble with a stylish scarab or a pair of earrings so intricately designed to look like flowers they almost seem like the real thing will really take things to the next level ($45,000).
A swanky new game board can be an under-the-radar favorite, but why buy a boring and plain game set when you can buy a crystal one from the esteemed Baccarat or a backgammon board with custom designed, hand painted drawings from up-and-coming New York designer Nine Fair ($775).
Basics need not apply this holiday season.
