Troubled by what to buy today’s twentysomething woman? After all, it feels good to make someone else happy with a thoughtful gift. But unfortunately, shopping during the holidays tends to suck all the fun out of giving – think overcrowded stores, blinking lights, incessant Christmas carols and unending lineups – especially when you have to deal with buying last minute gifts. The good news is, shopping online is now easier (and more enjoyable) than ever.
Morse Code “Love” Necklace
Simple yet thoughtful, the Morse Code necklace from San Francisco-based artist Julia Szendrei is perfect for showing her how much you care. The gemstones are interspaced with 14K Gold beads to spell “Love” in Morse Code, while the delicate gold chain takes the backseat.
Balancing Perfume Oil
Handmade in LA, this roll-on perfume oil from Yoke is 100% plant-based and 100% amazing. Inspired by Ayurvedic medicine, Flow is intended to calm and soothe with notes of Turkish rose absolute, amber, sandalwood and ylang ylang. Alternatively, Nomad, the second fragrance in the line, is betwitched with notes of lavender, sweet almond, marjoram, sandalwood, orange, vanilla bean, gotu kola, holy basil and turmeric. Not your typical designer fragrance – but much better.
