The holidays are a great time to give the gift of basics!  I’m talking about our go-to pieces: the ones we use most, the foundations of our style and routine. Often times these basics are the things we most long for, but getting them (for ourselves) can sometimes seem indulgent so they are easily swept aside or compromised. Investing in a silky-soft tee, a stand-out umbrella, or specialty skin care products shouldn’t be hard…but it is. This is precisely why going basic will help you shine this year. Trust me, she’ll love you for it.

1.  T by Alexaner Wang Every girl needs a proper tee. Yes, it’s worth the price tag! ($81)

2.  The Row curved-square sunglasses A classic yet modern shape that will get tons of use. ($325)

3.  Truman Handcrafted iPad Portfolio Forget the masses, go for handmade. So basic and so sexy. ($100 limited quantity sample sale.)

4.  Handmade Cooper bracelets from Etsy shop Orange is the Sun  A casual pop of color is a must for every jewelry box. ($24 each)

5. Rag & Bone Newbury booties  A great basic shoe that will work with everything, year-round. ($495)

6.  Skin & Bones organic face cleanser  Don’t forget the basics refer to skin care too! Handcrafted, organic, very special. ($40)

7.  butter London in Yummy Mummy A classic color that’s essential for any polish collection ($14)

8.  PAPERSELF faux lashes Intricate patterns cut from paper. Not an every day basic, but fun and flirty is a vanity must.  ($19)

9.  Body brush Handmade in Sweden. Perfect for pampering but best with regular use. ($26)

10. Luxury eye mask from Etsy shop Bib Bon Every girl should sleep with a mask, and this is the ultimate. (I have two!) ($35)

11.  Josie Maran Argan lip treatment  Keep lips kissable. No GMOs, parabens, pthalates, sulfates. ($18)

12.  Color Wheel Umbrella No girl should be without an umbrella. Is there a better way to brighten up a rainy day? Nope. ($40)
