The No-Size Gifts That Will Take The Stress Out Of Holiday Shopping
When it comes to gift shopping for your close-knit circle, you can probably walk into a store and immediately know which shoes or top to buy for them. However, when you're purchasing for others outside your group, like say a cousin or colleague, things can get a bit tricky. But when in doubt, stylish no-size gifts are an easy solution. In fact, some of the most fashionable gifts on the market are one-size-fits-all — jewelry and accessories included.
"Because the fate of the world is a bit precarious at the moment, I think the key is to give pieces that create joy at home," Susan Korn, founder and designer of New York-based accessory label Susan Alexandra, tells TZR about buying no size gifts. "A pair of beautiful earrings, a personal necklace, or a cheeky bracelet all make your day brighter, lockdown or not." Korn says she's seen a massive uptick on the sale of jewelry over the past year, and believes the trend will continue into the holiday season. As for her personal holiday shopping, she's planning on giving many no-size gifts this year. Topping her list: "vintage crafting books, candles, hand painted ceramics and, of course, copious amounts of handbags and jewelry."
Michela Panero, founder of Milan-based accessory label Rosantica, is in agreement that jewelry is perfect when you're contemplating a universal gift. "A single chunky chain necklace, bracelets, or earrings will completely change your look and raise it to a new level," she says. "But, we can't live without our AirPod crystal cases and mobile cases with removable chains that become necklaces," the founder adds.
Additionally, you have other categories to consider when scoping out a no-size gift. If the receiver recently moved, help them spruce up their space with a luxe vase or soft throw blanket. And with winter on the horizon, assist in upgrading their cold weather accessories by gifting a stylish scarf or beanie. If you're ready to start your shopping, below you'll find the best gifts to treat your friends and family to this season — no size needed. Whichever you decide on, the receiver won't be disappointed.
