Shady + Spexy Gifts They’ve Been Eyeing

Happy December! We know this month is full of party planning, cookie baking, decorating and so much more, which is why thinking of just the right gift for everyone can be tough. But no matter who you have on your list this year, we’ve gathered a few present ideas to help you out (including the season’s hottest eyewear and sunwear, of course). So dive on in to our holiday gift guide, below. If you’re interested in details for how to buy any specs or sunnies that catch your eye (even if they’re for yourself – we won’t tell!) feel free to reach out to us via our contact page, and we’ll hook you up!

For Your Best Friend: Let your bestie know you care by giving them the gift of always looking fab. Gals will steal the show in cherry red specs from Bobbi Brown, while guys will love these rectangular frames with a feathered tortoise pattern from State Optical Co. Is your BFF a coffee (or tea!) lover? Feed their addiction with a cheerful mug complete with an inspirational message. Of course, everyone will love receiving new Cole Haan sunnies (a golden double bridge is our fave!) or quintessential round shades from TOMS Eyewear. Top off the gift-giving with a lit phone case so you and your friend can always get the best selfie.

For That Special Someone: Even lovebirds will adore a new pair of sunglasses this holiday season. Outfit bae in perfectly retro round shades from Modo or try out a modified wayfarer silhouette from Smith Optics. Can’t get enough of those lovey-dovey carols? Play them for months to come on a sleek Bluetooth-equipped speaker. Is your plus-one a foodie? You can’t go wrong with a food and drink pairing book. However, nothing can beat a pair of Clubmaster-inspired glasses from Seventy one, or urban-chic specs from Kingsley Rowe.

For a Sibling: Treat your bro or sis to a color-filled holiday. Green tortoise wayfarer-inspired shades from SPY are like nothing they have ever seen before, not to mention two-toned mint and teal specs from Face à Face. A cute colorful framed print will look perfect on their wall, while a new brightly hued notebook will jazz up their desk. If sissy prefers a hint of glam, give her dramatic cat-eye sunnies with gem embellishments from kate spade new york. Or gift them a fun orange and gray pair of glasses from Prada, and you’ll surely get on their good side.

For Mom: Every mom deserves a touch of glam, especially around the holiday season when twinkly lights will glimmer perfectly off of golden Vera Wang sunnies. Pamper her with holiday edition lipstick and a cozy sweater to curl up in by the fire. Add a touch more pizazz with Swarovski specs in an untraditional deep teal shade, or opt for two-toned black and gold specs from Genevieve Boutique. If mama prefers understated allure, give her sleek ruby red shades from Nine West, and you’ll be her favorite for a while.

For Dad: What could be a better gift than outfitting pops in the same frames Jude Law wore in the seasonal movie favorite “The Holiday?” These limited edition frames from Face à Face are back for a short time to turn every Jon into Jude. Pair them with a cozy plaid scarf for the full British effect. Aviator-inspired shades from Randolph Engineering are perfect for the dad in charge, while a more relaxed vibe can be complemented by Shwood sunnies featuring a wood plaque on the temples. A snazzy leather watch will put a smile on his face, and sharp black and white frames from Randy Jackson Eyewear will truly make this a holly jolly time of the year.
