Pulse’s annual Holiday Gift Guide offers the perfect present for even the most discerning receiver. Because this year your special someone sashayed across the tightrope of naughty and nice in splendid fashion, indulge her in coveted treasures that capture the sparkle, flame and luxury of the season.
A unique lady deserves a unique bauble. Designs that are earthy, but elegant and traditional, but modern, reflect the timeless statements of ancient goddesses and 21st century power women alike. A balance of materials, like sparkling gemstones and chunky metals, is perfect for the “ready for anything” kind of girl. Such is the hallmark of the singular renderings of this Huntington-based designer. Bonus: no one else at the New Year’s Eve party will be wearing anything like it.
Star Light, Star Bright
Nothing says “starlet” like bangles designed to match the wearer’s favorite color. Rubies and sapphires, straight up emeralds or orange and blue sapphire wristlets boast more than 60ctw each of the gemstones. Glamour girls will stack all three for an uninhibited embrace of precious color to brighten the dreariest of winter days—or create the sparkliest evenings at a secret resort getaway.
There is a time and a place for everything and when it comes to fur, the response is “always and everywhere.” Especially when cut to the most practical garment in any wardrobe. When dyed to the color of a perfect Caribbean moon, this piece becomes something to hold onto forever.
Since diamonds are a girl’s best friend, why not cover her in them? The ideal “little jacket” that works wonders on cool spring nights or with a pair of jeans is reimagined in this unique design. The combination of it being super light-weight and dyed with lights and darks makes it ideal for any occasion.
Let your hostess know you think the most-ess of her with a token that will survive the party this year, and next, and next. 8 Oak Lane is embracing the holidays with their Evergreen story, a lighthearted offering of pitchers and glasses. Mud Pie’s latest serving board balances the simplicity of stark marble with the elegance of a copper inlay and handle in a way that says “thank you sir, may I have another.”
When it comes to that woman in your life that has it all, give the gift of memory. Scent is the strongest memory synapse and these candles are hand poured to capture the olfactory qualities of Long Island’s favorite places and times of year. The votives and tumblers also make great gifts for those in our professional spheres deserving of a little extra acknowledgment this time of year.
They can even be personalized.
