Words— Frank And Oak staff

Shopping for the women in your life can be challenging to say the least -- you want to make sure you get something she’ll like, sure, but you also want something she’ll be able to hold onto for years to come.

 

With the holidays sneaking up faster than you can say rum and eggnog, having a gameplan is key to ensuring your gifting list gets checked off without a hitch. That’s where we come in. Here, we’ve rounded up some of the most unique and practical gifts for all of the women on your list -- whether you’re shopping for your best friend, your partner, even your mom.

 

 

Frank And Oak Wool-Blend Cable Sweater

 

 

Come wintertime, choosing between style and warmth is often a struggle. This striking cable sweater resolves that -- the soft teal colorway and cozy wool-blend makes it an easy choice for everything from dinner with friends to cozy movie nights at home.

 

 

 

 

Wwake One Step Bar Earring

 

 

Subtle enough for her to wear every day but striking enough to garner compliments on the regular, the one step bar earring from Wwake make for a great surprise come Christmas morning. Something she’ll cherish for years to come, this 14k yellow gold earring is a luxurious way to show your appreciation.

 

 

 

The New Yorker Encyclopedia of Cartoons

 

 

This is the coffee table all critical and politically inclined readers want to have prominently placed in their living room. The New Yorker Encyclopedia of Cartoons is a carefully curated anthology of all the best New Yorker illustrations -- dating all the way back to 1924.

 

 

 

 

Bruce Barnes Ring

 

 

Handcrafted in New York, the Barnes ring by Bruce is described as ‘a gentle nod to an older era.’ If she’s someone who appreciates the classics, she’ll flip for this subtle accessory. Available in metal or 14k gold, there’s a plating to suit every taste and style.

 

 

 

 

Foreo Luna Mini 2

 

 

The Luna Mini 2 has one goal: to make her skincare routine seamless and easy. This cleansing device gently exfoliates the skin while getting rid of any end-of-day grime. It’s small enough to pack in a carry on bag and lasts five months on a single charge.

 

 

 

 

Apple Airpods

 

 

Apple Airpods have successfully crossed over from cool new tech to must-have accessory. If she’s still untangling her earbud wires every time she goes to listen to a podcast, the gift of wireless will be much appreciated. Apple Airpods are compatible with any iPhone.

 

 

 

 

Frank And Oak Lambswool Toque

 

 

One can never have too many toques -- especially knitted lambswool variety. This designed-in-Canada beanie was made to suit just about any winter style, even with the playful pom pom. 

 

 

 

 

Click and Grow Smart Garden

 

 

Not having access to fresh herbs in the winter really sucks -- and trying to grow them yourself with the limited winter sun is nearly impossible. That’s where the Click and Grow Smart Garden comes in. This handy device has a built-in energy efficient LED lights and smart soil technology to accelerate plant growth. It also has a water reservoir that takes care of watering the plants -- which is great for those who may not have a natural green thumb.

 

 

 

 

Herbivore Botanicals Jade Facial Roller

 

 

If you’ve ever looked up anything about skincare on Instagram, you’ve probably seen one of these little guys sitting pretty on a vanity. A jade roller looks good, yes, but it also plays an important role in skin health by promoting lymphatic drainage and puffiness. Facial rolling is also thought to have serious de-stressing and relaxing benefits.

 

 

 

 

Aesop Resurrection Aromatique Hand Balm

 

 

Hand balm in the winter is a no-brainer -- especially if it’s the resurrection hand balm from Aesop. Crafted with natural ingredients, this hard-working hand cream will ensure that her hands stay moisturized throughout the dry winter months.

 

 

 

 

Glossier You

 

 

Beauty wunderkind Glossier released their first fragrance last year and it has been flying off the shelves ever since. Unlike most fragrances out there, Glossier You is formulated to smell marginally different on each person’s skin. With notes of ambrette, musk and ambrox, it’s subtle enough to wear from the office to after work drinks.

 

 

 

 

Frank And Oak Style Plan

 

 

Consider this the gift that keeps on giving. The Frank And Oak Style Plan is a monthly clothing subscription service that works with her to ensure every single item will suit her taste and personal style. She’ll be able to preview her box before it ships and return any items that don’t suit her style perfectly.

 

 

 

 

All About Cake by Christina Tosi

 

 

Milk Bar mastermind Christina Tosi is back with a brand new cookbook -- All About Cake. If her ideal NYC itinerary includes a trip to the iconic bakery, she will flip for this book, where Tosi reveals all the Milk Bar recipes and more -- including two-minute microwave cake mugs.

 

 

 

 

Frank And Oak Mini 'Villa' Leather Zip Wallet

 

 

Nobody realizes how much useless stuff they carry around until they receive their first mini wallet. The Villa wallet is large enough for the essentials only -- cards, cash and coins. It slips seamlessly into the smallest evening bags and looks great as a stand-alone accessory, too.

 

 

 

 

KOMONO Moneypenny Watch

 

 

A delicate watch makes for a great gift come Christmas morning -- and this KOMONO number is just the ticket. The square face and mesh band offer a unique take on the classic analog timepiece.

 

 

 

Salad for President: A Cookbook Inspired by Artists

 

 

Salads don’t have to be boring -- and Salad for President is proof of that. This visual-first cookbook was created by food blogger Julie Sherman, and offers more than 75 unique salad recipes, nestled in between interviews with prominent artists and creative professionals such as William Wegman, Tauba Auerbach, Laurie Anderson, and Alice Waters.

 

 

 

 

Vitruvi Porcelain Diffuser

 

 

A simple diffuser makes any room in the house feel like a spa. Vitruvi is based in Vancouver and places major emphasis on health and wellness -- especially from the selfcare entrypoint. Their diffusers are visually striking -- a welcomed addition to any nightstand or desk, and their essential oils are 100% natural, meaning she can feel safe using them as often as she likes.
