Time for the annual Christmas gift guide for moms and grandmas. Face it. You love your mom and grandma, but you haven’t got a clue what to get them for Christmas. It’s hard to buy for people as they get older: they simply have everything they need. What to do? Here are some top picks for 2014
Monogrammed scarf – Give mom or grandma a gorgeous monogrammed scarf from Land’s End. These luxurious scarves feel like cashmere but are easy to wear and easy to care for. Allow an additional two business days to the delivery of your item to accommodate the time needed to embroider. About $35 including embroidery.
CND Nailpolish – These upscale polishes are sensational and come in a full range of colours. The fall collection includes stunning metallic as well as fall colours rich in reds and oranges. About $10 each at Chatters or online.
Alex and Ani bracelets – I love Alex and Ani jewelry for its total package: beautiful design, use of recycled materials, and inspirational messages with each design. In Edmonton from Arti’s Designer Fashions in Edmonton or online. Bracelets range from about $30 and up.
Pandora bracelets and charms – If mom or grandmas already has a Pandora bracelet, this is easy. Suggest that each child or grandchild pick out a different charm to reflect something special. This is a wonderfully personalized gift.
This post would not be complete without a plug for Style on Purpose. Give your mom or grandma a gift certificate for an individual style consultation, $75/hour, or a full two-hour workshop, $149. Both offer a focus on mom or grandma to help her rediscover her personal style and tips on making the most of her wardrobe. Click here to order a gift card.
