Last Minute Gift GuideDecember 13, 2019
It happens every year. The holidays seem to sneak up on us and those lofty plans of languid shopping trips and home baking quickly get replaced by panicked late-night online shopping and store bought treats. We get it. To make your last-minute details that much easier, we’ve put together a collection of our favorite gifts for everyone on your list and priced everything $150 or less. Let’s go shopping.
Tokens That Give Back
Our Wine Bags and Stockings are perfect for the holiday hostess, a friendly neighbor, teachers or a work colleague. Crafted from an assortment of our favorite prints from over the years while the trims and pompoms are repurposed from previous collections. All proceeds go to one of our favorite, local non-profits, 5 Acres. Pop a bottle of mulled wine in the bag or a stuff the stockings with holiday treats and this is a foolproof, thoughtful gift.
Our Best Selling Snooze Pieces
Described by the Johnny Was team as “the softest pajamas I have ever slept in”, our gift picks are the Mishka Short Sleep Set or the Dreamer Short Sleep Dress. Crafted from a blend of Pima cotton and modal (a super soft natural fiber made from beech trees) the cozy quotient is off-the-charts. Great for mothers, daughters, friends and—in the spirit of giving back—yourself.
For the Wellness Warrior
With so many yogis at Johnny Was it seemed like a logical (and healthy) step to design our own line of wellness gear and yoga mats. Showcasing some of our most beloved prints over the years–so far the most popular mat has been the Zirto but they’re all gorgeous. Another beautiful wellness idea? The Neva Leggings with our signature embroidery flourish. They can downward dog or effortlessly sit back for brunch.
On-the-Go Colorful Essentials
Even if you live somewhere sunny, it’s good to have an umbrella and our Nilma Foldable version is not only compact but it stashes up in a sweet, teddy bear pouch that can attach to the handle of your purse. Equally chic and tote-able are the Khali Makeup Bags. Each one is one-of-a-kind as they are sewn up using upcycled pieces of our fabrics, with prints and trims from past collections. Perfect for, well, anybody.
Wrap up a Scent
Our beloved Talia fragrance with its inspired combo of musk, vanilla, jasmine and orange blossom has become a mainstay at Johnny Was and we’ve translated it into candles and soaps for the home, as well as our most recent edition of a luxe eau de Parfum. If someone you love is already a fan, we recommend the Oil, because it comes as a petite roll-on that is perfect for tossing in a purse or toiletry bag.
Added Extras with Sparkle
Accessories are one of our favorite gifts to give, from the chic Madison Hat which is a wool fedora with a leather band, or our more splashy jewelry pieces. The Chandi and Cala bracelets feature brass beads with colorful cords, while other staff picks are the Reef Runner rings with chunky, semi-precious stones and gold plated bands. Whatever you choose, it will be appreciated and timeless.
