SparkleShock Gift Ideas (Lovers & Friends)

Christmas is two days away and if you’re still dragging your heels in picking out the perfect gift for those special somebodies on your list, you’ve come to the right place! Below are some gift ideas for the people in your life in which a gift certificate just won’t cut it. As a disclaimer, I would by everything on this list for myself, so you know its got to be awesome!

For the Flashy Fashionista

I think everybody has that one friend, lover, daughter, or co-worker that always has the most flashy, yet really chic accessories. These bags by UK designer Angel Jackson are the perfect gift for her. The unique designs combined with a killer array of studs, leather, suede, and animal prints make for the perfect gift for the Flashy Fashionista.

For the International Jet-Setter

I love to travel, but I do not love to travel weighed down with heavy carry-ons. It makes it worse when the said carry-on is not stylish. Luckily, the new bags by Chanel solve that problem by killing two birds with one stone! These bags are the brainchild of Karl Lagerfield and the Ad campaign is represented by Lily Allen. These two combined equals Coco Cocoon – a chic, yet durable collection of bags and totes perfect for travel. You might even get away with giving one to that special guy in your life…just make sure its as black and un-quilted as possible!

For the Kick Collector

To me nothing is cuter than a guy who adores his shoe collection. Guys are allowed to collect fresh kicks like we ladies are allowed to collect chic handbags, so for that guy in your life that never wants you to “step on his J’s”, these Rainbow Winged sneaks by Jeremy Scott for Adidas are perfect. They’re a part of the Adidas originals collection and they most certainly are that – original. These aren’t necessarily sneakers he would wear daily, but the moment he does, I guarantee all eyes will be on him. There are also some really awesome track suits in the collection as well.

For the Comic Book Cutie

Comic book illustration is one of my most favorite artforms and I love when its combined with fashion. Consequently, I love these 75th anniversary DC comics graphic tees and accessories, available at Bloomingdales. Designers including Psycho Bunny and John Varvatos have really created some great stuff that’s perfect for that comic book loving guy in your life. The character  graphic tees are awesome, but I’m more partial to the Superman cashmere scarf. What guy wouldn’t want one of those!?

Hopefully anyone that’s an avid reader of this blog is someone whom appreciates the art of design whether it be a well crafted t-shirt or a one-of-a-kind lamp. If so, then these gifts are for those whom aren’t afraid to express themselves, try new things, and always makes sure it sparkles and shocks!
