Not Another Scarf: 5 Better Christmas Gift Ideas

| November 20, 2012

warm gray scarfAccessories make excellent Christmas gifts, whether for under the tree or in a stocking. Skip the popular scarf section at your local department store, though, and opt for one of these better ideas for Christmas instead. DexKnows listings can help you find retailers nearby.

1. Rose Gold Watch

Both men and women gravitate toward this fall trend, which combines gold with copper alloy to create the distinctive color. Michael Kors makes timepieces in rose gold for him and her, as does Burberry. The watch counter at your local department store, such as Macy’s, will have plenty from which to choose. This bigger ticket item may even allow you to cross a significant other off your holiday shopping 2012 list.

2. Funky Phone Case

Some smart phone users like to match their cases to their clothes. Every mall has a store or kiosk that caters to these customers, making adding to their collection easy. Whether or not your gift recipient changes phone cases as frequently as they change clothes, Belin makes a multi-colored option for the iPhone that should suit anyone. It features tiny squares of seven different colors repeated over and over again, making it a complementary accessory no matter the outfit.

3. Leather Touchscreen Gloves

Give this gift so a friend or family member can stay warm outdoors without losing the important ability to use a touchscreen. Many variations of this concept exist, including a stylish leather option from Sharper Image lined with Thinsulate. This idea may suit several people on your Christmas shopping list.

4. Stylish Socks

Everyone needs socks, but few gift givers have fun with their choices for under the tree. Department stores such as Nordstrom have a multitude of interesting options, from colorblock over-the-knee socks by Hue to lacy anklets by the store itself. There are even a bevy of leg warmers on racks this year, ready to bring back the ‘80s.

5. Pleasing-to-the-Eye Earbuds

Earbuds need not be boring black or gloomy grey. They come in every color on the wheel now, and some even feature designs. Skullcandy, available at BestBuy, has more than a few to choose from, and all feature the company’s signature skull stamp.
