Holiday Gift Guide - Part 1
November 28, 2016
Santa Claus is coming to town — and we all know he’ll need a helping hand. No matter who you’re buying for this year, The Mall at Millenia has the perfect gift…
For babies and toddlers
This year’s winners in the youngest-shopper category are Peekaboo Elmo, who says 13 phrases and moves his arms up and down — you’ll find him at Bloomingdale’s (for kids aged 18 months–four years); Janie and Jack’s heart-melting penguins sweater; and Pottery Barn Kids towel wraps. Pictured: the Nemo-tastic clownfish.
For kids aged 5–9
Sci-fi lovers will go wild for Pottery Barn Kids’ Star Wars sleeping bags — be warned: you might have to wrestle these away from Dad. For party girls, check out Gap Kids’ navy sequin drop-waist dress. And get those imaginations soaring with a design-your-own-superhero-mask kit, by Seedling, available from Bloomingdale’s.
For older children
The FujiFilm instax mini 8 camera, available from Everything But Water, will keep the budding artists, adventurers, and social butterflies in your life happy: like an old Polaroid, it prints snaps instantly. A micro drone from Macy’s will send young tech pioneers soaring. And for pampered princesses, look no further than Lush Cosmetics’ Little Snow Fairy bath set.
For health and fitness fanatics
The Vitamix 780, available from Williams-Sonoma, is the top-of-the-line whole-food juicer, perfect for making healthy nut butters and smoothies as well as juices. Or gift some beauty to the yogi in your life, with a Manduka yoga mat towel from Neiman Marcus. For gym bunnies, lululemon athletica’s Rise & Shine backpack has oodles of interior and exterior pockets, and reflective details to make sure even early-morning and late-night workouts are safe.
For the traveler
Chic, jet-setting ladies know that a crossbody pouch for your passport and wallet is a must for travel days. We love Tory Burch’s Peace embellished crossbody. For long stints on trains, planes, and automobiles, Beats award-winning wireless headphones, available from the Apple Store, are a blessing. And Sofia Cashmere has the ultimate luxe travel gift: the cable-knit travel gift set containing a neck pillow, blanket, eye mask, and carrying bag, from Neiman Marcus.
Look out for the next instalment of our holiday gift guide in two weeks: you’ll find presents for the bon vivants, intellectuals, luxury-loving girlfriends, and dudes in your life.
