1. A Token Of Kindness Mod Necklace ($219.00): Available in black and blush enamel, this locket carefully protects a special picture to honor your loved one’s personal story. You only need to select a special memento that will bring great memories to the recipient, and the team at A Token Of will print the picture and fit it inside the locket. Engraved with the word “kindness”, the locket and chain are made with .925 Sterling Silver filled with 14 karat gold. If this weren’t special enough, on the back of the locket sits an authentic diamond that rests right on the chest, allowing your loved one to carry those beautiful memories close to the heart. A beautiful way to show how much you care, this token of love will surely be cherished for the meaningful gift it is. And although it will be precious for anyone who is lucky enough to receive it, we think this is the perfect glamorous gift for the motherless daughters who want to carry their Mom’s memories everywhere they go in style. {This locket is made in the USA and 10% of the proceeds go to No Bully}

2. Vosgues A Constellation of Cosmic Truffles ($61.20 on Cyber weekend): Need a cool and glamorous Christmas gift idea? The answer you seek for is in the cosmos. Just look at the stars and you’ll find…well, the tastiest chocolate confections! Packed in a gorgeous gilded box featuring the Zodiac signs, these limited edition Cosmic Truffles pay homage to the energy of the Universe with a delicious constellation of 21 bites. And if the gooey goodness isn’t enough, these truffles are infused with Moldavite crystal energy and angelic love vibrations. The story book inside is another gift in itself; gorgeously illustrated, it explains the origins of the twelve zodiac signs and explains how each is paired with a truffle in the collection. Definitely not your usual bonbon box, and a great gift to pay back that friend who is always pampering you with her or his good vibes!

3. PMD Clean Pro Facial Cleansing Device ($149.00): This luxurious smart facial cleanser uses the latest technology to offer the ultimate skincare routine. Designed to deeply clean and nourish face and body in a simple two-step process, the proprietary SonicGlow technology breaks down dirt and oil from within the pores at 7,000 vibrations per minute. These vibrations, aside from leaving the skin squeaky clean, reactivate the microcirculation of the skin to help lift, firm, and tone the epidermis. But wait, there is more! To help achieve the dewy look that is all the rage on Instagram, the flat side of the back of the device is actually a heat therapy tool that helps infuse skincare products for even better results. Made with silicone, an antibacterial and waterproof material, it is the perfect gift for the bonne vivante in your life who appreciates the latest innovations in the world of beauty.

4. Foxcroft Brinkley Wrinkle-Free Matheson Tartan Shirt ($79.00): 60% cotton. 40% polyester. 100% tartan awesomeness. This wrinkle-free shirt requires practically zero maintenance for an easy wear with an even better fit. Fitted and festive, the plush velvet trim and flared bracelet sleeves make it a perfect addition to any winter outfit. The perfect gift for that traveling fashionista who loves to look impeccable on the go, she will surely appreciate the beautiful shape of this shirt that, miraculously, keeps the maintenance to a minimum so she can focus on the fun. Talk about glamorous gifts that are also smart!

5. Ayuna Body Cream ($118): Give the glamorous gift of professionally hydrated skin with this luxurious blend of nutritive lipids and prebiotics. Ayuna Body Cream combines Plasma Rich in Cell Factors from the Noni fruit and Peptides from lactic bacteria for a silky, non-toxic skincare superhero that balances the skin’s own microbiota. Conceived to help reinforce the skin’s own natural defenses, it is the perfect gift for that New Yorker who is exposed to many daily aggressions (such as the sun, the heat, the unbearable commute, or the MTA delays. I am pretty sure that never knowing if you will get on the train is a major aging factor!) A wonderful concoction to take skincare to a new level of soothing and nourishment, the cocktail of lipids and essential fatty acids in this product is perfect for the Nor’Easterns that are coming our way. {Psst, if you want to learn more about Ayuna, here is our latest review of the brand}

Super soft and uber chic, this coatigan is the most versatile lounging piece ever.
