With Thanksgiving having already come and gone and Christmas decorations already up, it's time to look at some gift giving ideas to help you out for the remainder of this holiday season, which for many can be the most stressful part of the holiday season.
Here are some tips to help you out while shopping for those on your list:
Give a Gift the Recipient Wouldn't Buy for Themselves- From a spa day to a reservations at an exclusive or even trendy restaurant, by providing a gift down this route, you are offering them something they don't have but also something they may not think about purchasing for themselves. This options allow the gift to be unique in its own way.
For some ideas, check out Spafinder, which allows you to narrow down your spa search to the recipient's location. Another idea is to go the food route. Outside of restaurants, there are many artisanal food-related items or brands local to your area that you can introduce to your recipient. One of my favorites is Taza Chocolate. They make stone ground, organic chocolate and have a factory in Massachusetts.
Give a Gift that Gives Back- There are some companies that provide a portion of their proceeds to help a particular organization. By providing a gift within this realm, you are providing two gifts in one - one for the recipient and one for the person/organization benefiting from the gift.
One company to check out is glassybaby. They sell glass votives and candle holders where 10% of sales go to the glassybaby White Light Fund that works to support various people in need.
Give A Gift that You Already Love- Even if you have the hardest person to please on your list, take a look at what you love. If they are even more difficult, take what you love and offer a gift card for that brand.
For example, you love Adea's Layering Tops but are unsure of the recipient's size or color preference. Instead of worrying too much about the details, opt for an Adea gift card that can be used online. In this way, you know the product has already been vetted (by you), and you can always offer suggestions on what you like or have found works for you when the recipient is ready to redeem the gift card.
Always keep in mind that gift giving should be fun and shouldn't be a chore. So, even if you have the most challenging recipient, find a way to make it enjoyable.

I have always had a fondness for the storied and elegant Plaza Hotel in New York City. Back in the day I interviewed a delightful fashion editor in the Plaza’s famous Palm Court. I found the whole experience fascinating so when I came across an article about the history of the Plaza I started reading at once.
For 58 years, 89% of the astronauts have been men. And for 192 years, there were no women justices on the Supreme Court until Sandra Day O’Connor in 1981. In light of where we are today – these numbers are shocking.
In the five years that I’ve been writing these fashion blogs I’ve come to the conclusion that the creative heads of these worldwide companies have daunting, or almost impossible, daily jobs. The headline you see above came from Alessandro Michele who, in January 2015, became the creative director of Gucci, the company that was founded in Florence, Italy in 1921 and currently has 500 stores worldwide.
We use Italian lingerie sizing for our bodywear and items tend to run small.
Because of the body-hugging nature of the fabric and our body conscious fit most women prefer to wear our layering tops as under-layers. If you are inclined to wear them on their own we suggest you size up. Please email us or give us a call if you have questions about your sizing. We're happy to help you get it right.
Relaxed fit. Wear alone or over any of our layering tees or camisoles.
