2016 Christmas Gift Guide – For Her
We here at Man of Many truly appreciate a good bromance or sausage party, but the truth remains that there’s no gift more important this 2016 holiday season than the gift you get “for her”. That’s right, no man is complete without a solid female in his life–be it a girlfriend, wife, mother, daughter, beard, friend, sister or relative–and among the few things we know about women is that they relish a great present telling them you care. In other words, it’s absolutely crucial you get her a gift that counts this Christmas.
Naturally, like most males you probably don’t have the faintest clue what a “gift that counts” actually means. That’s why we’re here to save your ass with our Christmas Gift Guide For Her. Read on for products that combine sentimental value with stylish flair. These products are guaranteed to raise a smile on her face and give her the impression that you put forth a ton of effort this holiday season, when in reality it was just a few easy clicks before you went back to your video game. Don’t ever change, men.
Little.l Criss Cross Body Chain
Part ideal present for the contemporary female, part perfect excuse to see a revealing outfit, you can simply do no wrong with the Criss Cross Body Chain from jewellery brand The Littl. Choose between Sterling Silver, 14k Yellow Gold and 14k Rose Gold and feel free to spend as much time as possible perusing the various “models” on the website. If only all Christmas shopping could be this fun! The best part is the female in your life will actually thank you for it. Now that’s what we call win/win.
Australian beach towel brand Tesalate makes you look like an expert at finding style in unlikely places. Their towels feature stunning patterns that would look as good mounted on the wall as they would wrapped around your girlfriend’s bikini clad body. Pair those eye-catching visuals (the towel that is) with a super retentive AbsorbLite material composite and you’re looking at one hell of a beach towel that’s both preciously compact and supremely quick to dry.
The Daily Edited Black Travel Wallet
We live in modern times and that means products eschewing stereotypes in favour of fashion and convenience. To put it another way: purses are so yesterday. Impress the female in your life by getting her the savvy Black Travel Wallet from The Daily Edited (TDE). It’s equipped with ample pocket space and tons of premium leather. She’ll never leave home without it.
Sant and Abel The Beverly Hills Hotel Collection
Men have their WWE wrestling and sports car reality shows and women have their real housewives and Kardashians. As only the coolest of people like to say: “Just go with it.” If you really want to show the female in your life that not only are you cool with it, but you’re actually paying attention then scope the Beverly Hills Collection from luxury brand Sant and Abel. Each piece in the collection flaunts the best in material and design and the Martinique Short Sleeve Shirt & Boxer Short Set in particular has been worn by superstars like Chiara Ferragni and the Kardashians themselves. Buy it “for her” and watch as her jaw drops just a little, as if she can’t figure out how you possibly knew such a thing existed in the first place. And feel free to keep your sources to yourself–the holiday season is all about giving and so consider this insider tip our present to you, dear reader. Use it wisely.
Bondi Wash Best Seller box
If you’ve never lived with a female then you might be unaware of how loyal they are to soap and lotion. Seriously, skin care is religion to most females and don’t scoff because they do it in part to look good for you (and, you know, to keep their skin clean and hydrated). Since there are more skin care products on the market than there are insects in the rainforest we suggest going the all-inclusive route by getting her the Best Seller Box from Australia’s Bondi Wash. The box is basically a greatest hits compilation of sprays, soaps and washes. You might be genuinely surprised at how excited the female in your life gets when she sees you bought her soap for Christmas.
Ettitude Bamboo Daydream Sheet Set
You might not be aware of it, but they’re doing amazing things with bedding these days. For evidence of the fact look no further than the stellar Bamboo Daydream Sheet Set from Ettitude. Made entirely of sustainable 100% Organic Bamboo Lyocell, these sheets offer supreme comfort and dreamy texture as well as an elevated sense of self-satisfaction. The Daydream Sheet Set truly makes you feel good on all levels!
Lack of color Midnight Valour Boater
Keep her looking sharp and protected with the Midnight Velour straw boater hat from super hot brand Lack of Color. The hat not only looks amazing but includes vintage Swiss velvet in the centre box bow for an extra touch of smooth style. Buy it for her and expect her to wear it to pretty much every daytime event in the near future.
3.1 Phillip Lim Pashli Leather Trapeze Bag
Give the female in your life something that will definitely make her friends jealous (which let’s be honest is exactly what she wants) with the ‘Pashli’ Trapeze Bag from 3.1 Phillip Lim. Lim’s chic, textured-leather bag offers plenty of space, an optional strap, expandable sides and flourishes of luxurious gold hardware. This is one gift that’s guaranteed to please!
Lucy Folk Anchovy Pearl Cuff Earring
If she’s into products that use subtle designs to make stunning impressions then you can do no wrong with the Anchovy Pearl Cuff Earring from Lucy Folk. Think of it as almost a bracelet for the ear with a handmade textured cuff link attached to a single Fresh Water Pearl stud by way of a Yellow Gold chain. It’s meant to be worn on one ear only because putting it on both would definitely be overkill. Buy her one for Christmas and then watch as all her friends slowly pop up sporting the same thing.
Fella Swim Louis Top
Keep it simple and stylish with the Louis Top from Fella Swim. Made with 80% Lycra PA and 20% EA Italian fabric, the popular triangle design top is an effortless way to get her smiling during the holidays. It accommodates women of all sizes thanks to an adjustable t-back and flaunts a monochromatic colour scheme. Plus, it offers you yet one more excuse to check out bikini-clad bodies in the name of Christmas spirit.
Westward Leaning x Olivia Palermo Sunglasses
Westward Leaning teamed up with Olivia Palermo to deliver a pair of shades that redefine style. The ‘Flower 13’ aviator acetate and metal mirror sunglasses are directly inspired by the counter-culture movement out of San Francisco in 1967, but they don’t go overboard with psychedelic colours (however there is a very tasteful splash of trippy colour on the hinge). Instead the Flower 13 shades use brilliant details like premium tortoiseshell acetates and a black metal brow bar to lend them an ethereal vibe as if they’re floating in space. When joined by mirrored lenses that glint from striking orange to pink the shades take on a certain timeless essence, as if the past and future are converging in one stellar product. These shades are the epitome of elevated chic no matter what the era and the woman in your life will adore them.
