I love the holidays. Christmas lights, music, time with family, and shopping for gifts. Every year I vow to do my gift shopping early, and in traditional fashion, it’s about a week until Christmas and I still have shopping to do! Shopping for gifts is a lot of fun but can also be difficult. If you’re still on the gift hunt for the fashionista in your life, maybe these great accessory finds will help. And if you ARE the fashionista, hope you’ll check these pieces out. They are truly awesome!

I love you. Marry Me. BFF. My Heart. Always.

Inner Message Rings

Take a close look at these Inner Message Rings by Jungyun Yoon. Now, take an even closer look. These beautiful understated rings house a hidden message on the inner surface of the band, and the message leaves an impression on your finger when the ring is removed. There’s just something oh-so-cool about having a secret hidden message. Guys, listen up. If you’re looking for something for your special gal, these rings are definitely a winner.

The rings are available in sterling silver and gold and customizable with your special message. I love these rings and the inspiration behind Jungyun’s creations. Stop by her site to learn more.

Unique and Modern

Two-Finger Ribbon Ring

Ribbon Necklace

Love, love and love these pieces from Aminimal Studio. These beauties are inspired by the structures found in magnetic fields. I am particularly in love with (and now own) the two-finger ribbon ring. Besides being unique pieces of art, they are also very affordable and stylish! And, if you’re looking for accessories for a New Year’s party, these will look fabulous with a little black dress!

The Stylish Wristlet

Eco Friendly Wristlet Embroidered Mustard w Grey Felt Flower Applique

Aren’t these wristlets gorgeous? Milwaukee local Kamryn Kay of Permanent Baggage has an amazing line of bangle wristlets. Each bag is one of a kind and handmade from 98 percent repurposed materials. They are available in a wide range of color combinations in beautiful textured fabrics. They are a perfect size that can easily hold essentials like a phone, lipstick, keys, and a small wallet. I really love the large silver bangle which you can easily slip around your wrist for carrying. In addition to these wristlets, Kamryn also has various unique jewelry pieces available like the Steam Punk Chain Gear Earrings below. Visit her site now and you may be able to get them in time for Christmas!

Touch Gloves

I’m an iPhone junkie and when winter comes, I’m always on the lookout for touch gloves. These Smartouch gloves from Isotoner are absolutely fabulous. The touch fingertips are very accurate, gloves fit extremely well, and they have non-slip palm grips to help prevent your phone from slipping. I can’t recommend these gloves enough. They are available for men and women in a range of colors. And lucky for all of us, they are available at many retailers in the area.

Happy gift giving, happy holidays and best wishes for a fabulous 2012!
