‘Picture Your Street’ Personalized Photo Art
(page 1 of 3)
With statistics revealing that nearly half of Americans are planning to use a digital device (desktop, laptop, smartphone or tablet) as a primary means of purchasing holiday gifts versus just over 33-percent of folks planning to beat the streets and shop in-store, digital mobile consumerism has clearly come of age. I myself am indelibly on the hunt for great gifts and gets that can be bought online with all of the comfort and convenience that affords. Given the National Retail Federation finding that personal holiday spending this season will reach the second highest in the 13-year history of its consumer survey, it seems cyberspace will be one busy place this year.
In the spirit of easing and expediting your efforts, here are this year’s holiday gift picks starting as low as $20 in the style, foodie, and beauty categories that can all be purchased lickety-split via a viable Internet connection.
***** STYLE GIFTS *****
ClaudiaG Handbags (ClaudiaGCollection) - $99 - $220
Perfect for the fashionista in your life are designer handbags from ClaudiaG, which is a brand by designer Claudia Gutierrez offering beautifully handcrafted and sophisticated bags as well as versatile accessories and on-trend jewelry. ClaudiaG’s Fall Collection items are all really gorgeous and make great gifts for the style seeker. I especially love the new Willow Fringed Cross body handbag, which is highly functional and stylish–it’s great as a day to day bag or for carrying as an oversized clutch for nights out. It has the signature purple nylon interior lining, a zipper-closure, and is accented with decorative ClaudiaG Leather drops—that’s a dangling adornment that are another signature of the brand. The Nyx Clutch is another bag I really like from ClaudiaG. It’s a sophisticated design made with polished details in genuine leather and handmade silver rhinestones cover the bag, making it a real attention-getter. The purple lined interior has enough space to keep all of the essentials for a night out! My favorite of the season, though, is probably the Olivia shoulder bag. It’s made with luxurious fox fur and genuine leather is a true a show stopper. It’s a more dramatic bag that’s also accented with the signature ClaudiaG Diamond drops and purple lining, and has a variety of pockets throughout the inside. From handbags to accessories, apparel items and more, this brand has something for every fashion-forward gal.
Chamilia ‘Treasure Necklaces’ (Chamilia) - $75
Wear a symbol of what you treasure most with the new Treasure Necklaces collection from Chamilia, a Swarovski Company. Six delicate sterling silver disc pendants complete this sweet collection, each featuring an engraved sentiment on the front—Love, Friend, Family, Mom, Sister or Daughter—and Chamilia’s iconic hummingbird logo on the back. Beautiful sterling silver, open-filigree frames are electroplated in 14 karat gold and lay freely on top of the discs, which hang from 18" sterling silver chains with a 2" extender. This collection is destined to be a classic and is pretty much perfect for any female in your life. It’s outstanding for holiday gift giving in a way that expresses love and a reverence for those treasured relationships in your life, all year through.
