For fashion enthusiasts who really like to read to preppy friends who don’t want to look like anyone else on the tennis court, these five stylish gifts are as broad ranging as they are pricy. Herewith, high fashion for all your most style-minded, hard-to-please friends and family members:
1. The Stylish Bookworm
For the literary fashion lover in your life, pick up a copy of Dior For Ever, which came out this fall from Larousse. Yes, it's in French, which means the giftee's coffee table grows its international presence while the recipient grows their fashion vocabulary.
2. The Art Lover
Here's the perfect gift for that friend who says they're going to Art Basel for the art and then spends all their time at fashion parties. Bridging both worlds are the Damien Hirst X Alexander McQueen scarves, which do triple duty as a little arty, very fashionable, and wildly expensive.
3. The Correspondent
Fashionable, writerly friends deserve to correspond via paper and ink on bespoke Cartier stationery. Only the New York boutiques offer paper services; get in touch directly for pricing and design.
4. The Prepster Athlete
Preppy recipients ought to get a completely unique Ralph Lauren polo -- created just for them by you, of course. The brand's "Create Your Own" options extend across a range of different polos, but we like this slim-fit, emblazoned option.
5. The Style-Minded Dude
Don't forget the fashionable men! What to gift them? A subscription to Svbscription. The company partners with designers, publishers, tech companies, and beauty brands to offer the best of the best in groundbreaking goods, mailed in monthly parcels. The service isn't cheap, but past parcels have been known to include items from handmade hatchets to fountain pens to bow ties.
