14 Gifts for Women

By: Sharp Staff|December 9, 2014



Fred Leighton 1960s 18-Karat Gold Diamond Ring

If you don’t know Fred Leighton, you’re missing out—and so is your lady. Fred Leighton offers a well-curated collection of vintage and estate jewelry ranging from 18th century emerald-encrusted earrings to chunky ’60s rings, like this 18-karat gold and diamond piece. Generally there’s only one available, which makes each a gift for someone truly special., $9,500

Panthere de Cartier Ring, 18K White Gold

Jewelry has the power of updating a woman’s look instantly—some red lipstick doesn’t hurt either. This fierce ring from Cartier’s new Panthère de Cartier collection is anything but basic—it’s beautifully handcrafted and glitters with feline confidence.

Cartier, $79,000

Fraanklin 100 per cent Cashmere Scarves

Is there anything cozier than wrapping oneself in cashmere on a crisp, early winter morning? The fast answer is no. Made from cashmere sourced from Inner Mongolia, these scarves from Fraanklin (a Toronto-based scarf brand) are so soft and warm, we’re willing to bet its receiver keeps it on until temperatures are back in the teens.

Fraanklin, $145

Chanel Premiere Gold Chain Watch

Timeless and elegant just like the iconic 2.55 quilted handbag that it draws design inspiration from, Chanel’s gold chain Première watch makes an unforgettable gift. In addition to its versatility, this timepiece is the perfect weight for a woman with a slender wrist.

Chanel, price on request

Ebel X-1 Watch

White ceramic will always look crisp and elegant on a woman’s wrist, and makes a great gift. Add to that a 48-diamond bezel, 15-diamond crown and a diamond-embellished watch face and you will be a girl’s best friend.

Ebel, $6,500

Trust Fund Beauty Nail Polishes

Nail polish bottles can make excellent stocking stuffers, especially if you can pick out your lady’s favourite shades. Not only will she love that you pay attention but she’ll appreciate the story behind this luxury, non-toxic, 5-free vegan brand. Trust Fund Beauty was created by Samara Granofsky whose mother passed away from cancer. During her treatment there were no beauty products that were safe for use due. After she passed, Samara took her trust fund to start this line brand that could be used on anybody, at anytime. Have a box of tissues handy.

Trust Fund, $15 per bottle

Saint Laurent Monogramme Leather Clutch

We know that purchasing a purse as a gift can be a huge gamble. A woman’s preference when it comes to size, fabric and number of pockets is anyone’s guess. Which is why a simple, stylish clutch is a definite lock. As long as a woman can fit a smartphone, a lipstick and a few business cards, this choice is easy.

Saint Laurent, $1,390

Swarovski Blossom Cuff

Every woman needs a collection of go-to accessories she can rely on. Impress her with this eye-catching Swarovski cuff that delivers with its jewel tone crystal beads and architectural exterior.

Swarovski, $475

Tassimo T65 Brewer

He who brings the coffee is the hero. Better yet, he who buys the equipment to make said coffee is the bigger hero. Especially when that machine can make everything from regular coffee and espressos to lattes and hot chocolate. With zero clean up. Tassimo’s newest model is multilingual (20 languages in all) and comes with an LED cup-stand light so you can brew in the dark….without letting anyone know you’re using their new coffee maker.

Tassimo, $250

Van Cleef & Arpels Pearlee Collection

Stacking rings from the Van Cleef & Arpels Pearlée collection feature a delicate “strand-of-pearls” motif in yellow, rose or white gold. They’re sure to suit the tastes of a refined woman who enjoys accessories with a minimal touch of whimsy.

Van Cleef & Arpels, $900

Vickisarge Burma Rose Gold-Plated Swarovski Crystal Clutch

This starburst-themed Swarovski crystal cuff by Vickisarge is a gift that’s as show stopping as the woman you’ll give it to. Inspired by the tribal women of Burma, this strong and stand-out piece isn’t for the faint of heart.

Vickisarge for Swarovski, $1,120

Champagne Supernovas: Kate Moss, Marc Jacobs, Alexander McQueen, and the ’90s Renegades Who Remade Fashion

Veteran style and pop culture journalist Maureen Callahan takes readers back to the 90s when Kate Moss, Marc Jacobs and Alexander McQueen reigned supreme and their troubles were notorious. Any woman who follows news in the fashion world can probably tell you what happened. But that won’t mean she doesn’t want to read all the sordid details again.

Chapters, $30

Frends with Benefits ‘Taylor’ Headphones

It doesn’t get much more luxurious than leather wrapped headphones with memory-foam ear cushions keeping it comfy. A three-button mic controls volume, music and phone controls, so warm mittens never have to be removed.

Nordstrom, $240

Roots XL Premium Collection

The holidays are for eating. Then, when the eating is over, they’re about scavenging for leftovers. Comfy clothes are needed to do all of that in. By combining Roots’ rich heritage in sweats with advanced technical fabrication and ergonomic design, Roots has created the most functional and versatile collection ever.

Roots, $168.00 for the sweater; $128 for the pants
