We’ve got all the ‘Tis the merriest time of year, until you realize you have a zillion gifts to buy. We’re here to help. We’ve got all the things you could dream of lined up for your girlfriends, daughters, sisters, mothers, aunts, grandmother and wives. Here are a few of our favorites, but for more check out the Chico’s gift guide.
For the First-Class Flyer
For the friend or family member in your life who thinks nothing of jumping on a plane to go to Charleston for dinner, and then hops over to Chicago to see something new at the Art Institute. She loves exploring the world and looks great doing it. A ruana is the perfect layering piece for any frequent flyer—throw it for extra warmth, comfort and style. It’s incredibly easy to pack and adds interest to any outfit. No matter her style, we have pieces to match—opt for neutral knits if her wardrobe is elegantly timeless, or choose a colorful print for those who are on the bolder side.
For the Sophisticate
She loves to sit at the café, reading Flaubert or de Beauvoir, and sipping Mariage Frères tea. Her style is très chic, and her appellation of choice is Champagne. She’ll adore these goodies we’ve handpicked just for her. An embellished sweater will make a statement wherever she goes. Bib necklaces with sparkling gemstones and fringe tassels add polish to any holiday outfit. And just because the snow starts to fall doesn’t mean she can’t accessorize with style—our cold weather accessories feature luxe details like faux-fur trim and colorblock fabrics.
For the Cozy Connoisseur
Her idea of a great day starts with a picture-perfect walk, followed by lunch with friends, and then home to curl up with her favorite book. She makes even the dreariest day glow with her optimism and cheer. A matching hat and glove set is just like her, bright in the darkest days of winter, and warming when it’s horrible out. Choose between a gray ribbed knit sprinkled with rhinestone beading, or a black cashmere knit woven with metallic stripes. Bring on the bad weather!
For the Pragmatist
Always put together, always on time, always there. Her cupcakes are perfectly frosted, her roast perfectly trussed. And she’s also somehow fun too? A crossbody bag is sure to be the gift at the top of her list this year. Pretty and practical, not only do they fit your phone, wallet, keys and lipstick, they have compartments to help find what you’re looking for with minimal hassle. Expect to hear “Oh, that’s so great!” when she opens the box. (And by “her,” we may also mean “you”!)
