Gift Guide: For The Ladies

Let’s talk about the girls for a (hot) minute. They think we’re tough, but gifting them is equally hard!

Hey Dappers!
This was a highly requested guide. (I totally get it, though)
Plenty of us are plainly puzzled folks in regards to ladylike things. Faux fur what? Beauty blender who? Some struggle finding products she’ll find worthy of wearing/using. After weeks of not knowing, we end up buying gift cards and/or aimlessly grabbing the first sterling silver gem our eyes lay on at the store. #thestruggleisreal

Experiential presents make the best presents, but tangible items have a certain classic gesture to it, illustrating a love well-cherished. All it takes is a bit of mindfulness (and a dash of hand-picked happenings).   
Corny but true. 
What’s worse than stepping into a women’s store without her support? Well, gents, i’ve got you covered. 
Here’s a curation of 10 things i’m deeply considering for them. Aaaaaaaaaand yes…i’m still #singlereadytomingle. LOL
Despite the clear cluelessness, I think our practicality might save us from the gifting hitch. When buying presents for the ladies, I consider cost per wear/use, and typically gravitate towards the classics.
Three of my top favorites are the earrings, sweater, and the cologne. 
Trina Turk’s tortoiseshell earrings made the top of my list, simply because tortoiseshell goes well with everything! The shape gives a modern take on the classic tortoiseshell hoops. 
The cashmere sweater from Everlane is a must-have. For quality cashmere, their price can’t be beat ($100 y’all!). Plus it’s a staple item she’ll appreciate no matter the personal style.
 Last but not least, the cologne. I chose this cologne by ChloĆ© because 1. it smells GOOD and 2.  the brand is wrapping up a successful business year. While the hefty price tag on the (highly-coveted) leather goodies might seem ridiculous, I ventured out from the crossbody bag and picked a perfume instead. The scent is unbelievably welcoming: not too sweet/fruity/grandma-ish, just the right amount of bliss. It’s hard to explain, but check out your local department store and have a smell!
As always, numbered links down below! Happy shopping:)
