Yes, we know that we're a handbag store, thanks for pointing out the obvious. But sometimes we like to give attention to our smaller gems that deserve just as much love and recognition. There are a few contributing factors that go into making a good outfit, a handbag is obviously one of them, but what about the smaller ones we tend to discount? In actuality, it's really the little details that complete any look.
For those of you who are struggling with what to get your mother, sister, wife, etc for Christmas, first of all - don't worry, you've got 21 days to figure it out and we've got you covered.
First and foremost, anything Chanel is always a good idea. So what if you haven't got £4,000 to spend on a new bag? Like we said, it's the little things that matter the most. Why not opt for a brooch? It's an alternative to the obvious jewelry you'd usually buy for a loved one and it's versatile enough to suit any kind of outfit. If your special someone has a flair for flamboyance and loves anything that sparkles, then the crystal-embellished CC brooch is the way to go. For the elegant, sophisticated woman who embodies traditional femininity, then the pearl-embellished CC brooch is the one to go for. Chanel very rarely ceases to lose its value, hence why investing in jewelry is a smart move. Not only are these pieces classic and rooted in the brand's heritage, their timelessness allows you to pass them down from generation to generation without the worry that they'll go out of style. Though they're obviously the perfect compliment to any evening look, there's no reason why you can't pin the CC brooch to your go-to peacoat overtop of a cashmere jumper with a pair of jeans. It's the little hint of glamour that will catch anyone's eye, I mean, we all need a hint of glitz and glam in our lives, right?
So pretty much, if you're buying for someone with a love for luxury, labels and all things extravagant, then this Chanel belt is a no-brainer. To say this piece is "extra" is a complete understatement - but that's what makes it so cool. All belts are functional, this is true, but basic belts are, well, basic. So why not wear a piece of jewelry around your waist instead? Speaking of jewelry - yes, if your loved one wants to wear this piece as a necklace she can. A piece you can easily dress up or down, this unique belt is one any woman would die for. Perfect for the edgy young woman with a fashion-forward sense of style - this belt paired with black trousers, a logo hoodie and our Chanel Ice Cube Flap bag? We love it. Next birthday gift, perhaps? We're being cheeky, but just in case you can have a look at it here. ;)
Though this particular piece isn't one you can wear, it's still a little touch of glamour your loved one will carry with her throughout her day. In fact, it's one she'll look at every day but not one she'll ever get bored of. The perfect accessory to spice up something as boring as your house keys, theres no reason your bare necessities shouldn't be captivating. Yes, keychains are a must-have for any woman with a love for little luxuries. Regardless of age or style, this pretty piece is a suitable companion for any set of keys. Crafted from palladium-finish brass, this Louis Vuitton gem features the brand's signature flower details and LV logo. The reason we love this one so much is because it's special for a different reason. A handbag is a handbag and yes, of course, every time she wears it she will think of you. But every time she opens the door of your house, car, office, etc she'll look down and smile. It's a little piece that will stay with her every single day, and given its quality, it won't ever fall apart. Trust us, she'll never get rid of her.
The perfect accent to any look that's neutral, monochromatic, colourful, dressy, casual - okay, you get the point. This neck scarf is the ideal accessory to give your outfit an eye-catching pop. Crafted from blue, white, navy and pink silk, this bandeau is as versatile as it gets. We've seen this piece tied around the neck, hung loose over the neck, tied on the top handles of bags and even around the wrist as a bracelet. Though tied around the neck with a small side knot is our favourite way of wearing it, this diverse little piece is suitable for any woman who's looking for a multi-purpose accessory. Despite its loud pattern, this scarf still remains discreet when it comes to branding. So if the one you're buying for likes to make a statement without looking like a walking advertisement then this accessory is the perfect option. Though its colours might not be the most festive during the holiday season, theres no reason why she can't wear it all year round. The ideal gift to have under the Christmas tree or in a stocking, this little silk accent is definitely a piece that will make her smile.
Your sixteen-year-old niece? Your stepdaughter who's good side you're still trying to get on? Anyone you know you have to buy a nice gift for but have no idea what they like or what their interests are? Don't panic. You already know that you can't go wrong with Chanel, especially jewelry, but most of it tends to be quite sophisticated and for a slightly more mature woman. These fun little earrings are perfect for any young woman with a bit of an edge. Though the stunning pink crystal leaf-earrings can easily go from day to night, the shooting stars and logo-embossed airplane earrings are ideal for any casual look. Whether you're wearing an outfit as basic as a pair of jeans with a white tee and a leather jacket, these earrings will add that extra touch of edgy-elegance. Perfect for any young woman with a love for luxury and unique pieces she wont get bored of, any of these little Chanel gems are ones she'll appreciate more than you know.
