These Last-Minute Christmas Gifts Are Stylish And May Arrive On Time
Some make it a point to purchase all their holiday gifts a month before Christmas, and then there are the rest of us: corporate drones and busy bees too caught up in the daily grind and cumbersome traffic that we forego the gift shopping until its frighteningly close to the deadline. By the time we’ve decided to make our way to the shops, we find ourselves trapped by the holiday rush.
Not to worry. There may still be a way for us not to show up on Christmas empty-handed. We found some of the most stylish gifts that can be shopped online and, with hope, have delivered to our doorstep no later than Christmas. Feel free to give these to the style-forward friend, relative, boss, or co-worker.
Sunset Dry Goods 5-Panel Washed Selvedge Denim Ball Cap
This classic five-panel cap, with a vegetable-tanned logo patch, is made with 16-oz selvage denim. A pencil loop allows you to stick one by your temple instead of behind your ear, a small yet significant detail that suits a friend who’s always on the field such as an architect, an engineer, or a journalist. Yet, even if the recipient is chained to a desk in an air-conditioned office all day, the cap’s workwear-influenced aesthetic makes it a worthwhile buy.
Prada Metal Key Ring
Key chains don’t have to be boring; Prada takes the accessory to the next level with this all-metal Doctor Frankenstein key ring. The steel-and-brass figure has a slight patina that adds to its appeal. This is a quirky yet well-crafted piece that will help your friend never lose his keys again.
Balenciaga Graffiti Leather Briefcase
This leather briefcase isn’t so much a briefcase but a handle-free pouch that can hold all the essentials. The sleek lambskin is given a twist care of graphic Balenciaga text all over its surface. This is a suitable present for the friend whose tastes lean more toward the urban-influenced and avant-garde.
