10 Dreamy Gifts for a One of a Kind Woman: The Best Presents for a True RomanticBY Natalie Gempel // 12.23.17
These are dreamy gifts for a woman of romantic sensibilities – someone who is never afraid of styling challenges and cares not of practicality. She’s a sartorial risk-taker with a full social calendar, moving from bed to beach to boardroom without missing a beat. She might utilize chic satin pajamas for a laid-back daytime look, or casually show up to brunch wearing Jacquemus’ instantly iconic La Chapeau Bomba.
A woman with this much je n’ais se quois deserves gifts equally alluring. Here are 10 suggestions for romantic gifts:
1. Mansur Gavriel Calf Train Case in Flamma
This little train case screams glamour with its cherry-red leather and classic silhouette. The round shape reminds us of a bucket bag, only way cooler. Perfect for traveling cross country on luxury rails or for everyday use as a cute, unusual purse.
2. Fictions Mini Eau De Parfum
This fun-sized fragrances has a story behind it. The Fictions fragrance collection “captures the multi-faceted experience of falling in love” through the lens of different artists and the cities in which they live. Choose between the floral-laced London: She Knew He Was Forever or the spicy Paris: She Met Him in Secret.
3. La Chapeau Bomba by Jacquemus
A gift as fabulous as it is absurd: A oversized, sculptural straw chapeau by hotter-than-hot French label Jacquemus. This item is actually only available for preorder, but it should arrive just in time for warm weather. Perfect for high-style beach bums and sun goddesses.
4. Vanessa Mooney Locket
What’s more sweetly romantic than a locket? Hip jewelry designer Vanessa Mooney’s take on the classic necklace is inexpensive and understated enough for everyday wear. Don’t forget to place a (very tiny) photo inside.
5. Vintage Silk Scarf
A vintage scarf is a great present not only because it’s practically one-of-a-kind, but because it’s versatile. One day it’s a headband, the next it’s a necktie and the next it’s a risque tube top. The selection of designer silks on TheRealReal is impeccable; think Gucci, Hermes and Chanel at deeply discounted prices.
6. Pat McGrath Labs LUST Lipstick
2017 was the year that the most influential beauty queen made her mark on the cosmetics industry — we’re not talking about Kylie, Kim, or even Rihanna — we’re talking about iconic makeup artist Pat McGrath. The woman who has been behind nearly every major beauty moment in recent memory launched her own line of products, including a few seductive lipsticks.
“Obsessed!” is a perfect show-stopping red, and the holiday edition comes with glitzy packaging.
7. Archival pigment print of Gluten Freedom by Chloe Wise
What better gift for the romantic soul than art? And stylish, cutting-edge art at that. Fashion it-girl and artist Chloe Wise’s painting Gluten Freedom is equally stunning and witty. Recently shown at Almine Rech gallery in Paris, the work is now available for purchase as an archival pigment print through Artsy.
8. Pixi Beauty Rose Oil Blend
Anybody would be happy to receive the gift of glowing skin. This nourishing skin oil is suitable for all skin types and has an amazing, fresh rose scent.
9. Orseund Iris Victorian Cotton Top
Just a gorgeous corset top fashioned out of ivory cotton from under-the-radar label Orseund Iris. Although, Bella Hadid recently wore this very blouse out on the town, so it may not remain under-the-radar much longer.
10. BLUEBELLA Wren Satin Pajama Set
Somewhere between sexy and cozy, this slinky satin pajama set is perfect for staying in on chilly winter nights and lazy weekend mornings.
