Holiday Wish List: Gifting Ideas to Give (or Get) This Year

Posted by Stella Carakasi on

Finding the perfect gifts for your loved ones can be tricky year after year–especially if it’s for that person that always seems to have everything! If you struggle to choose the perfect gift, don’t fret! Today, we’re discussing our top holiday gifts for your loved ones (or for you to add to your own wish list!)

Cozy Sweater

Nothing says holiday like a warm, stylish sweater. Here at Stella Carakasi, we pride ourselves on making high-quality knitwear that is comfortable, flattering, and stylish for years to come! Investing in a quality sweater is such a great gift because it’s something they can cherish year after year. We just launched a few fantastic new sweaters that will make the perfect gift for any remarkable woman on your list.

Our Masterpiece Sweater features a unique knit design with contrast color blocking at the hem. This head-turning style will surely prompt the question, “Where did you get that sweater?” If her style is a little more classic, check out the Eye Candy Sweater it’s our modern take on a vintage-inspired jacquard pattern. Both are available in three fantastic neutrals that make holiday dressing a snap.

We also just launched our best-selling Go To Cardigan in more colors ranging from classic neutrals to eye-popping colors– available just in time for the holiday season! The unique mix stitch design makes this long open-front cardigan a no-brainer multi-tasker that transitions effortlessly from season to season. It’s an easy-to-wear style she’ll feel good about wearing to any occasion.

Statement Tops

Live in a warmer climate or looking for layers? Why not add a beautiful top to your wish list this year?! We just released brand new colors of our Tiburon Tunic and Prime Time Tunic! Both styles are versatile and made to fit and flatter most body shapes. The Showstopper Shirt is another new launch for us, and the stunning, shaped silhouette tells you all you need to know about this eye-catching top with a perfect name to match.

Our Wish List Shirt is one of those items that any woman would love to own. It’s your classic white poplin shirt with a few design details that amp up the charisma of this “must-have” shirt. From the flattering V-neck and back tucks to the smart 3-button cuffs and the unique side-step inserts that cleverly hide the on-seam pockets– this style is a sophisticated statement while keeping the cool factor intact. The Wish List Shirt, like all our poplin shirts, is crafted with organic cotton infused with nylon and spandex for just the right amount of stretch and comfort.

Make a Statement in Stripes

What are the holidays without a bit of fun?! Spice up their wardrobe this year with some pin-striped patterns! The Attitude Shirt is our spin on a jazzed-up, oversized, button-up shirt. For us, the bold striped pattern speaks for itself! If an exciting silhouette is more appealing, check out the Center Stage Shirt to show off the unique fit and flare design.

Regardless of tastes, the Crossroads Tunic offers a modern and timeless design with its asymmetrical pattern play and flattering uneven high/low hem. A true statement piece that will please any woman this season!

Comfy Bottoms

The best gifts are items that can be put to use and find joy in. Finding comfortable and stylish bottoms can be challenging for many women, so do the work and gift the perfect pair! Our Lounge Dress Pants are consistently one of our best-sellers because they feel like sweatpants but look like dress pants. We know–it’s hard to believe! If a slimmer silhouette is more her style, look no further than the Slimming Ankle Pants. This is another top style season after season because they feel like wearing buttery soft leggings!

On the opposite end of the silhouette spectrum is our brand-new Perfect Flood Pants. They’re made from a soft Tencel® Ponte knit and have a wider cropped leg. Lastly, our Tencel® Criss-Cross Leggings feature a unique crisscross design at the ankle and are great for women who like to be both stylish and comfortable no matter what plans they have in store!

Outer Layers

Coats and jackets are items you always want to upgrade, but you may not want to splurge on yourself. This means they’re the perfect gift option for any lady in your life! The Favorite Jacket is lightweight and is excellent for those living in a milder climate. Our Definitive Coat is lightly padded, providing more warmth while it is super fashionable over any outfit she has planned!

Everybody Loves Denim

What’s better than getting a high-quality denim style for the holidays?! We just launched a few standouts in our buttery soft Tencel® denim that are sure to have her excited to get dressed in the morning! Our new Mendocino Tunic was designed based on the shape of our best-selling Tiburon Tunic. It’s flowy, versatile, and looks great on everyone. The Between The Lines Tunic gives a bit more shape with its multiple panels, contrast stitching, and functional side pockets. The Ultimate Tunic is another excellent option with its unique design details and practical side seam pockets (who doesn’t love hidden pockets?!) Finish off her denim collection with our organic cotton Criss-Cross Denim Knit Leggings to pair with any sweater, top, or jacket in her closet!

Showstopping Jewelry

Jewelry is always an excellent option for holiday gifting, but you should make it reflect her style and personal tastes. ESKANDAR carries a range of designers who create truly unique pieces. From the word art by Serge Thorval to the more ethereal pieces by Rose Maria formed out of oxidized metal, semi-precious stones, and diamonds. If you’re looking for something more casual, we’ve hand-selected our own jewelry collection of artisan pieces ranging from pounded metal statements to one-of-a-kind handcrafted baubles that celebrate authentic artisan design with beaded strands and clusters that explode with color and pattern.

New Shoes

New boots, flats, or heels are another great gift option this holiday season. Eileen Fisher is our pick for shoes this year because they carry a well-rounded collection of boots and other shoes to wear through this season and beyond. From stretch knit booties (one of our personal favorites) to flats, loafers, and even slippers–you can’t go wrong with their selection!

Winter Accessories

A new winter accessory is always a great idea if all else fails. Scarves, hats, gloves, and mittens are items she’ll put to use and may not think to invest in on her own. Smartwool is a brand we’ve been loving because their things are both sustainable and stylish. They use regenerated and recycled nylon and merino wool for their beanies, scarves, and gloves, which directly falls in line with our support of sustainability in the garment industry.

If you want a truly unique accessory, look no further and check out our Hand Felted Wrap available in two fabulous rich colors.  We are sure this is a gift she will cherish for many seasons.

Gifting Made Easy

Still undecided?  Let them decide. A gift card is a perfect gift you know they’ll LOVE.
