It’s hard to believe, but we are in the midst of the holiday shopping season. For many it’s difficult to be jolly when you are racing for a parking space, trying to find a sales person to help you find the right size or give suggestions for the person on your list who has everything, then standing in line to buy something you aren’t sure of…being ‘merry’ may not be the first thing that comes to mind. To put the fun back in shopping and find the hottest items on any woman’s wish list, visit Fraleigh’s Boutique and find the perfect present!
Fraleigh’s has been a favorite shopping destination for 35 years and even more so during the holidays. This year, Fraleigh’s top ten unique gift ideas will have your family and friends covered from head to toe, literally!
For those on your list who like to rest and relax at the end of a busy day, Snoozies are like pillows for your feet. At only $14.99, available in small (sizes 5-6), medium (7-8), large (9-10) and extra large (11-12) sizes, these slippers will be the most comfortable thing under the tree.
Brighton Christo Cuff Bracelets
This must-have, goes-with-everything cuff bracelet includes a reversible leather band with two colors. Wear it with either color or alone for a sleek look. Available in wide and narrow cuffs, allowing your special someone to customize their own look with three different styles in one bracelet!
Each Bridgewater Candle burns cleanly, quickly filling a room with fragrance and looks great doing it. “We really like our Bridgewater Candles because they are very affordable, making a great gift for anyone to enjoy and each candle purchased feeds a child overseas for one day. These candles are available in small (8oz) and large (18oz) jars, decorative candles, Room Spray, Wax Bars and Reed Diffusers,” said Ally Merriman, a sales associate at Fraleigh’s Boutique.
You can never go wrong with monogrammed anything where a woman is concerned. Buckhead Betties offers personal accessories, home organization, gifts and everyday wear for the practical and self-expressive woman who wants functional, affordable, quality items that allow her to showcase a unique and personal style. Fraleigh’s has a Drop Ship Catalog, and you can pick out the perfect bag to monogram and have it shipped to your house! Shopping doesn’t get much easier than that.
The latest in fashion accessories are tassel and choker necklaces. “Tassel necklaces are the perfect gift to accessorize any outfit and make a statement. This year choker necklaces are back and bigger than ever! Pair a choker necklace with a long tassel necklace and get ready to receive compliments left and right,” Ally commented.
John Michael Richardson Jewelry
Blending the cultures of East and West, designer John Michael Richardson creates a look completely his own. He relies on the traditional craft of each country to convey a message, which comes on a card with each piece. Metals are handcrafted in Thailand with etchings that bring unique detail to his work; he mixes natural elements of horn, wood, bone and shell from Cebu; from the United States, he uses metal stampings. Adding glass beads from the Czech Republic, the items are plated, assembled and finished by hand in the US. The look is rich at an affordable price, and Fraleigh’s has earrings, both pierced and clip-ons, as well as pins.
Infinity scarves are easy to throw on and can add a pop of color to any outfit! Fraleigh’s also carries blanket scarves to make even more of a statement. A third scarf option is a magnetic scarf for those who don’t want to take the time to fix a scarf – just throw it on and be out the door in seconds!
Brighton Gift Sets
Prepackaged gift sets are perfect for the men in your life to pick up with ease! Sets were chosen from the most popular collections that Brighton has to offer and include three pieces of jewelry: a necklace, earrings and a bracelet.
If you don’t have one of these ‘capes’ or if you know someone who doesn’t have one, you all are missing out. Ruanas are perfect to throw on at a football game or for attending any outdoor event where toting around a bulky coat doesn’t seem appealing. “Ruanas give you just the coverage and warmth you need to enjoy the day into night. Our reversible Ruanas give you two looks out of one,” stated Ally.
For those on your shopping list who prefer to pick their own items out, Fraleigh’s offers gift certificates, which also go well tucked inside a pair of Snoozies!
With fashion and gift ideas throughout the shop, Fraleigh’s is ready to help you get your shopping done without the hustle and bustle at the mall. “We like our customers to think of us as their personal shopper, helping them pick the ideal gift and even wrap it. Our upcoming Christmas Open House, Thursday, December 1 through Saturday, December 3, is a great time to browse and get great ideas and get your shopping done no matter who needs a present. During our Open House, we will have 20% off storewide (excluding Brighton and sale items), and gift certificates will be given away daily,” Ally said.
