Ho ho ho, Merry (almost) Christmas, everybody! Only ONE week until Christmas! There is just nothing better than the holidays. Us ladies here at Maude get pretty jazzed about 'em. I mean, we've got Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years... turkey, ham, pie, and stuffing... parties, family, and festive dresses. They do say it's the most wonderful time of the year, right??
Yes, yes, yes! There is something so special about the season's sparkling lights and spending time with family. But wanna know what's not so special? Frantically searching for that perfect last-minute gift. OH, the agony you feel when you've waited too long and that holiday party is tonight! Tonight?! And there's a gift exchange, AHH! Nothing says TOUGH like ripping through a store with the greatest gift giving intentions, but no time or ideas!
Never fear, our procrastinating friends, we're here to give you our expert advice on gift giving this season. Whether you're shopping for your sassy grandma, fashionista friend, edgy co-worker, or that girl who already has everything (yeah right, no one has everything ;) ) we have you covered! Here are a handful of our favorite holiday items for every type of girl..
Your preppy girl loves a good classic. We're thinkin' tiny purses, strappy shoes, and shiny jewels. You might try a loafer with a snakeskin twist, like our Tigers Eye Seychelles Loafer.
Another practical option is our favorite planner in the whole wide world - give your gal pals the gift of organization for the new year ;)
This is for all the girls out there who love glitz and glam, big sunnies, floppy hats, and wild prints. Look for fun and wild pieces that say, HELLO! Look at me and my fashionista self!
The wonderful thing about shopping for a glamour girl is she can never have enough options! Go for those big, bold sunglasses - when it comes to sunnies, the more the merrier. Accessories are always better in abundance - gift your gal with a fab new floppy hat for the holidays!
For your glamour girl who likes to bundle, you'll wanna check out our Alaska Poncho (available in Rogers) - it's flowy, fabulous, and everything you could ask for in a winter ensemble.
If you're looking for a lady who loves shoes, go for a bright and shiny, strappy number! We've got a metallic Seychelles must-have that will turn heads all year long. ;)
There are some ladies out there who just really appreciate the practical things in life.
Shoes you can wear every day.. Oh, yes. That coat you can toss on (for any occasion) as you run out the front door on a whim. Two-toned jewels, gold trays, and cheetah. CHEETAH? you ask.. Oh yeah, friends, cheetah. Cheetah print is a bonafide neutral - it goes with almost anything you may imagine - we promise! Look for a printed purse or sweater if you wanna gift your pal with something sassy!
For your friend who likes to carry the essentials (and maybe a couple other things), snag her a roomy tote bag! Once again, a lady can never have too many purses.. !
Your girly girl is gonna love everything that sparkles, shines, glimmers with gold, or smells super sweet.
If you know she'll be at some hoppin, holiday shin-digs, get her a dress that shimmers all night long! Our Silver Slip Dress works perfectly for holiday parties PLUS layering with other tops later on in the season.
Nothing says girly gal like a femme pair of cat-eye shades... We all have those days when we need a little cat-eye. And, when in doubt, scent it out with the always winning Capri Blue (CB) candles. If you haven't tried a CB candle, you're missing out - give your gals pals the perfect mini Travel Tin this holiday season - definitely worth it for under 15 doll hairs!
With an edgy gift, the world is your oyster. (And the world is full of wild and weird and different oysters)! The edgy girl is on board to try anything and everything. Think outside the box when you're shopping for your fashion-forward, edgy friend.
Most ladies love black, and the edgy girl is included. Find cool, fun pieces that your pal doesn't have yet - if you're unsure, grab it in black and you'll surely make good marks. My personal favorite from Knot Sistas (aka Knot Sisters) is the Nashville Dress. Flowy, black, and a hint of floral.. MEOW!
A black hat is always in style - our Fedora Hat (under $30) looks great on every girl.
If she's a shoe lady, try some criss-cross, lace up heels or a pointy toe number!
