Little luxuries are all around us if you know where to look – be it a bright red lipstick that makes you feel like a movie star on a Monday morning, a mini-facial that makes you glow inside and out, or a book that takes you to the other side of the world. These tiny everyday gems are anxiously waiting to be discovered by you and wrapped with a bow, and each chapter of the LLGG seeks to deliver a new morsel of inspiration to you and your holiday season. Fancy shmancy is out; it’s those legendary “small packages” that hold the key to a perfect season of giving. Not that there’s anything wrong with a big santa sweater around the holidays– by all means, wear him loudly and proudly! But chapter five brings you five entirely different sweaters that would each make a festive gift with all the holiday bells and whistles, minus the potential of fitting in at your Ugly Sweater Party next week. 1. Pazza chevron striped cardigan by Diane Von Furstenburg, available at Lynku.com – £98.00 (it sold out everywhere in the US) For that North Pole look without the elfy aftertaste, a red and white wide-striped sweater like this can carry you through candy cane season and beyond. 2. Knitted Lurex Crop Jumper by Topshop, available at topshop.com – $74 I hope you’re not allergic to oxymorons, because cropped sweaters are HUGE this winter. This little Topshop number has just the right amount of metallic holiday shine. 3. Sienna sweater by French Connection, available at frenchconnection.com – on sale for $69.99 A playfully sophisticated way to give a green sweater. 4. Sequinned Boyfriend Sweater by Joseph, available at my-wardrobe.com – $693 A sweater with a party built in. It’s a splurge, but for the right recipient, a gift they’ll never forget. 5. Rib Neck Batwing Cardigan by Ted Baker, available at johnlewis.com – £89 (you didn’t know sweaters could make you do math) A red sweater that defies all red-sweater stereotypes. Would you rather stay away from pre-determining someone’s reaction to a festive sweater altogether? Give the gift that doesn’t involve any thread count or decisions at all – send them for a relaxing spa treatment of their choice this holiday season. $100 SPA WEEK® Gift Cards are on sale for just $80, $150 cards are on sale for $120, and so forth. They’re redeemable all year round at spas nationwide, and they never, ever go out of season.
