His And Hers: A Gift-Giving Guide For Men
Sure, you can never go wrong with a little blue box, and while we like the new Crown of Hearts stainess steel watchby Paloma Picasso (tiffany.com; $995), if you’re looking for more of a statement piece consider something from Tom Binns—he’s coveted among the fashion set, with celebrities like Beyonce, Lady Gaga, and First Lady Michelle Obama sporting his designs.
Our suggestion: this 24-karat gold plated brass Tangled Hearts Bracelet (CallTom Binns Megastore, NYC; 917-475-1412; $675) from his Faith in Fate Collection.
Even louder: this Hot Lips ring—apuckered kiss in bright, fire-engine-red lacquered sterling silver. It’s crafted, with wit, by iconic British jewelry designer, Solange Azagury-Partridge (net-a-porter.com; $1500.)
Too edgy? Not her style? If she likes the more refined look, nobody does dainty better than designer, Alex Woo. The Little Luck Key, her newest addition to her Little Luck Collection, is sure to lock her in. It’s solid 14-karat white gold, encrusted with pave diamonds. Personally signed by Woo, this hand-sculpted pendant arrives packaged in a custom wooden gift box(alexwoo.com; $848.)
Beauty And Fragrance
Beauty and Fragrance
Everyone likes Jo Malone, and the Bath Oil Collection (jomalone.com; $85), which includes refined scents such as Orange Blossom and Pomegranate Noir, comes beautifully presented in miniature glass decanters, and packaged in Joe Malone’s signature gift box.
As for perfume, that can be tricky. So, if you’re not sure which scent will strike the right note with her, get Les Rouges Collection Box by highly respected aromatherapist, Dawn Spencer Hurwitz. It contains a miniature (one dram) bottle of four natural, RED-inspired fragrances—some passionate; some sensual; some downright lusty. The sampler comes gift-wrapped in red, and adorned with a gold seal (dshperfumes.com; $55.)
