We all have a girlfriend on our list, whether she's the love of our life, our latest crush, or the girl we call when we need to talk. Treat your special girlfriend to one of these fun Grommets! Here are our suggestions for gift ideas for girlfriend:
Chocolate 2.0. TCHO is decidedly different. This San Francisco-based chocolate factory was founded by a Space Shuttle technologist-turned-chocolate maker and a chocolate manufacturing veteran. These are chocolate you'll be dying to give to your favorite girl! ($55.00) Buy TCHO good fair trade chocolate here.
Spread The Word. Michelle Hamman created a T-shirt with the word "ubuntu" printed on the front and a poetic description of its meaning on the back. And that’s how MotherTongues, the small business Michelle created with her husband, got its start. For every item sold, MotherTongues donates $1 to the Center for Women in Transition; truly a gift with meaning. ($24.99-$44.99) Buy Mother Tongues shirts with international messages of Peace here.
Parisian Charm. LilyMe is all about understated charm. Instead of a heavy link bracelet, LilyMe’s jewelry is mounted on a thin satin cord (you choose the color) with unexpectedly cool slipknots. The charms themselves are simple and chic. You can personalize a disc or heart, or choose from funky butterfly, flower, clover and peace designs. The effect is a hip, casual look that still has all the personality of vintage charm jewelry but none of the clunkiness. ($30 and up) Buy LilyMe French silver charm bracelets and jewelry here.
Capelet Crusading. Don't give another plain-old sweater to the Mom in your life this holiday season - the Mayu hooded shawl is all the rage and shows you cared enough to be creative! It’ll work with a fancy dress as well as with jeans and T-shirt, and it’s warm enough to layer like a cardigan or substitute for a jacket, depending on the weather. Ideal for the your favorite girl. ($139) Buy Mayu's knit alpaca shawl wrap with hood here.
BoHo Style Wrap Bracelets. iheartjenna's leather wrap bracelet is one of those discoveries that causes instant obsession. It has everything going for it – lots of layers, natural materials, and a cool, bohemian vibe that’s perfect for now. Handmade leather cord, gemstone and silver toggle wrap bracelets. ($55.00-$68.00) Buy iheartjenna Bohiemian Wrap Bracelet here.
One Size Fits... Not only does it fit, it flatters. And it looks good under clothes (no visible panty lines, no creeping up above the waistband), and it feels good. Hanky Panky underwear isn't felt at all while wearing them, and we think that’s the whole point. ($13.99-$18.00) Buy Hanky Panky's comfortable stretch lace thong here.
Recycled, Wearable Art. Ann Skydell Harmon believes that “recycling can be beautiful.” There are so many levels of meaning to Ann’s “wearable art.” With Ann-Made Jewelry you can show how much you care about the planet and be stylish while doing so. Being green is the new black, after all. ($18.50-$22.50) Buy Ann-Made Art's soda can tab recycled jewelry here.
The Must-Have She Doesn't Have. Luxe Link purse hooks are small, stylish (recycled zinc alloy paired with vintage Asian designs), and either attach to your purse strap or tuck into their own little suede pouch when not in use. When you get to your destination, just rest the round, decorative top on the table, and hook your purse strap on the chain link that hangs off to the side. ($35) Buy Luxe Link purse holders here
A Dash of Vintage, a Pinch of Chic. Kitchen aprons typically conjure up images of Bree Van de Kamp and Sunday roasts, but these funky aprons from Funktion aren’t nearly so prim and proper. They look so good you may not want to take them off when company arrives — and they just might inspire you to do some “al fresco” cooking, if you’re feeling adventurous. ($42.00-$46.00) Buy Funktion Retro Kitchen Aprons here.
