Apologies for not posting yesterday. Unfortunately, there is no money in this for me, so the paying job took priority yesterday. But now that I have gotten my sorrows out of the way, I think it’s a fine time to address the spirit of the holiday season, and that is “giving.” Many blogs put together very helpful holiday gift guides, but I thought taking it in a different direction could also be very useful. Instead of focusing on a wide range of gift ideas, I thought it could be helpful to highlight a single gift idea each day this week, and some great options available inside that parameter. Got it? Okay, awesome. Today’s focus will be on sweaters. I don’t know about you guys, but I love getting a new sweater or two for Christmas. What says “Merry Christmas, and I care so much about you” more than the gift of cashmere or Italian merino wool? Okay, a lot of things, but you get the idea… One really can’t go wrong with giving a nice sweater. Any style, any material, it’s all up to you… and I think the recipient will be quite appreciative.
L.L. Bean Norweigian Sweater, $129
Brooks Brothers Cashmere V-Neck, $348
J. Press Shaggy Dog, On Sale for $123.75
Made in the USA: Pure Cotton Shawl Collar Cardigan, $98
A sweater really is a perfect holiday gift. It’s cold (in most places), so this should be towards the top of your gift-giving list.
Editor’s Note: This week’s focus on gift giving ideas will be centered around gifts for men. If you’re coming to a blog to look for gift ideas for the lady in your life, you need more help than any blog could ever give.
