Whether your “girl boss” is on a mission to conquer the world one business trip at a time or is just looking for trendy accent pieces that can easily be mixed & matched for game night; these fab holiday gift finds will complement her busy lifestyle.
EIGHT ROYAL BALLET FLATS
Crafted from the finest leather; I love how Eight Royale’s ballet flats ($128) offer a snug fit, like a sock or a slipper. The name and design draw inspiration from a 19th Century Parisian phenomenon where butterflies had covered every lamppost on the 8th arrondissement’s Rue Royale and disappeared the next day.
A contemporary update to the traditional ballet flat, each shoe folds like the wings of a butterfly to easily stow away in her handbag, tote or suitcase.Perfect for that girl boss on the go www.eightroyale.com
JORD WOOD WATCHES
A girl boss with a demanding schedule understands the importance of making the time count! Wood watches that are made for people who don’t just have somewhere to be, but have somewhere to go; Jord timepieces are modeled after a modern lifestyle of efficiency and experiential living.
The ultimate stocking stuffer, the Jord Fieldcrest Zebrawood & Maple style Watch ($139) is a hand-crafted wood timepiece that can easily be dressed up or down to tell the story you want to tell. The intricate grain pattern of the Zebrawood will add a little edginess to her everyday style without overpowering her look.
Native to West Africa, Zebrawood offers a striking grain contrast and exceptional finish. Although the growth rings are very pronounced, the wood occurs naturally with both large grain and fine grain wavy or interlocked patterns. A coarse texture with open pores, Zebrawood is considered a luxury hardwood and is most commonly used in veneer application.
The perfect sustainable gift, JORD uses only whole wood stock to create their Zebrawood watches. www.woodwatches.com
MILA & SUCH SCARVES
One of the most versatile accessories in every girl boss wardrobe, the colorful silk scarf offers a fresh spin on a “tried & true” staple that can be used to breathe new life into your favorite outfit. A quick roll of the small square and a knot around the midpoint of your neck instantly converts this retro accessory into a trendy neckerchief.
Mila & Such scarves ($45 – $220) don’t stop at their “neck appeal” and are also a chic way to give your favorite bag a makeover. Designed by a breast cancer survivor that donates 10% of each sale to research & awareness, Mila & Such is the ideal gift that also gives back.
You won’t even need to wrap it because the packaging is just that gorgeous! www.mila-such.com
How cute are these Sweet Legs leggings ($25) that you can dress up with a pair of pumps and long sweater or go for a more casual look with your favorite pair of go-to ballerina flats? We picked this Wintry print, but there are are a variety of colors and prints to choose from.
Leggings have become an essential travel item that the girl boss can also wear as pajama bottoms, exercise gear or even dressed up with a blazer.
Every girl boss knows the importance of going light on the clothing when traveling and what better way than to pack a few pairs of leggings that can easily be rolled in your suitcase.www.sweetlegs.ca
