1. Rekiseisha Gold Flakes, Rikumo

Made from 96.8% gold and 3.2% silver, these gold flakes make the perfect present for the friend always looking to add a bit of luxury to their everyday lives. Sprinkle them in your tea for a bit of shimmer, or add them into your holiday cocktails for a celebratory twist. You can even use them for gold lettering. In other words, the options are endless.

2. Gray Braided Belt Chunky Clutch, SIMITRI

Handcrafted fabrics, sparkling embellishments and more make SIMITRI’s Indian-inspired handbags stand out. For an extra-special white elephant gift, we suggest the gray Braided Belt Chunky clutch: Hanging gold metal chains create movement and are juxtaposed against an underlay of gray silk fabric.

3. Gift Card, Boyd’s Philadelphia

When Boyds’ beauty bar opened last year, self-care aficionados swooned over exclusive access to brands like Kevyn Aucoin and Gucci Westman. And now, there’s even more reason to visit: With the purchase of a $250 gift card, a beauty bar experience with five friends is an added bonus. Think makeover services and skincare consultations—all with drinks and snacks too.

4. Evil Eye Bracelet, T TRIBE

Imported from Tel-Aviv, this evil eye bracelet will cleanse the spirit of whoever wears it. Made with stainless steel and painted in a bright Tiffany Blue, the jewelry also comes with an adjustable clasp—ensuring it fits anyone who picks it.

5. Luxury Candle Collection, JAMES by Jimmy DeLaurentis

Each scent from local Jimmy DeLaurentis’ candle line is inspired by his travels to Italy. L’Aquila—which hints of summer kiwi, water hyacinth and sea salt—honors the interior designer’s mother, representing her hometown in Italy, while Abruzzo—a scent comprised of cedarwood, oakmoss, ylang-ylang, vetiver, tonka beans and amber—gives a nod to the Italian region. The newest addition to his line is Harvest, featuring notes of bourbon, pear, cinnamon, caramel and dark chocolate.

6. Faliero Sarti Scarves, Joan Shepp

Shopping has never been so chic thanks to Faliero Sarti scarves available at Joan Shepp. Made in Italy, the scarves come in an abundance of patterns and colors, and add a touch of elegance to any outfit.

7. Crystal Face Mask, Sophy Curson

Glam up your face mask collection with the crystal beauties from this Rittenhouse boutique. Made from two layers of cotton and embellished with crystal rhinestones and Austrian crystals, the masks feature adjustable ear straps and come in an array of colors.
