Christmas Gifts for All
December 3, 2015
Four calling birds, three French hens, two turtle doves, and a whole lot of gifts to buy. This week, we bring you the best holiday gift guide of all: presents for the whole family, all under one roof at The Mall at Millenia. Here’s how to nail your Christmas shopping on your next Orlando shopping trip.
It is a truth universally acknowledged that men are the hardest people in the world to buy gifts for. Years of experience helping men and women shop for manfolk has taught us that something classic, useful, and of the highest quality is normally the best way to go. You can’t go wrong with fine luggage, and our friends at premium luggage brand TUMI have a few treats up their sleeve. The Alpha Bravo Grissom travel satchel features enough optimally designed pockets for some extreme organization, making it perfect for anything from the gym to carry-on luggage. Alternatively, swing by the Apple store and pick up the most coveted item of the year: an Apple watch—he’ll thank you for the fitness tracker as he embarks on those New Year’s resolutions. They’re available in sport or dress options; pictured is the 42mm Space Gray Aluminum Case with Black Sport Band.
The best gifts for best friends are the kind that couldn’t be given to anyone else. Show her how much she means to you with a Tiffany & Co. alphabet charm disc inscribed with her first initial. For an even more personal touch, consider an iconic Tiffany & Co. locket. Include pictures of the two of you and she’ll be able to keep your friendship close to her heart, always.
An outfit from the luxury children’s clothing brand Janie and Jack is really two gifts in one: a new favorite piece of clothing for the little one in your life, and, for you, the gift of watching her face light up as she opens the box. Standouts from the girls’ collection this season include a beautiful, delicate shimmer tulle dress, with coordinating faux fur shrug and ballet flats for the head-to-toe Christmas angel look. She’ll be in good company in this get-up: Suri Cruise is often spotted in Janie and Jack outfits.
If you’re looking for inspiration for a sportier little one, head to Finish Line, where you’ll find a wide range of teamwear. If there’s a faster way to a young sports fan’s heart than a team hat, we haven’t found it. Like local favorite the Orlando Magic knit hats.
And last but not least, hostess gifts. For the family’s hard-working chef, one of the best gifts you can give is a delicious gourmet hamper. Williams-Sonoma has the crème de la crème of Christmas hampers: the fruit and savory crate combines the juiciest pears with fine Italian prosciutto and rich, nutty American cheeses. Also available are cheese crates, fruit and confection baskets, and other goodies including olive oil hampers.
In the next installment of our holiday shopping guide, out in two weeks, we’ll bring you hot tips for holiday fashion and decorations.
