Redefine ‘Pleasantly Surprised’
When it comes to gift-receiving, there’s surprised… and then there’s pleasantly surprised. This holiday season redefine pleasantly surprised with gifts defined by a personal touch — monogram or personalize your gift with a message of significance. Lucky for you, we have an assortment of personalized gifts that show that you listen and care.
MAKE IT PERSONAL
Perhaps it’s a monogrammed WANT Les Essentiels de la Vie iPad case (212 339 3340), a Made-to-Measure shirt (212 339 3261) or a hand-calligraphed note by Bernard Maisner, personalized gifts say this gift is for you and only you.
Photographer Monica Rich Kosann offers a fleet of thoughtful lockets and charms perfectly pitched for the sentimentalist (212 872 2809) while Giles & Brother designer Philip Crangi presents modern rustic hand-stamped bracelets fashioned from old railroad spikes (this Saturday, December 1 from 2-4pm on 5F).
Jewelry designer Luis Morais reconsiders the ID Bracelet with 18-karat gold VIP bands and ID bracelets (although it’s available on the Men’s Third Floor, we can’t help but think it appropriate for ladies, too. 212 339 3340), while Seventh Floor leather-goods purveyor Graphic Image will personalize their leather desk and travel accessories (Saturday, December 18; 212 872 2809).
Animal-obsessed? iPhone-addicted but always cold? Honor their most charming-quirks with gifts that speak to their interests.
If they’re keen for our Fifth Avenue Windows, give an autographed copy of Linda Fargo and David Hoey’s The Windows at Bergdorf Goodman (they’ll be signing copies this Saturday afternoon; Seventh Floor, 212 872 2758). For the freezing texter, consider our BG Collection Leather Tech Gloves that keep fingertips warm and messages crystal clear (perfect for moms who want to avoid a WhenParentsText.com cameo; Main Floor, 212 872 2601).
Sentimentalists certainly will enjoy Nate Berkus’ latest tome, The Things That Matter; visit the Seventh Floor this Saturday, December 1 and Nate will sign a copy for you (212 872 2758). Have a frequent jet-setter? Help them travel in mile-high style with our BG Collection Cashmere Travel Set (Seventh Floor, 212 872 2809), Bobbi Brown Travel Brush Kit (Beauty Level, 212 872 2681) and Gigi New York Travel Set (212 872 2809).
The golfer in your life may appreciate our compact Romagnoli Golf Set (Men’s First Floor, 212 339 3290) while your animal-lover will be charmed by Loewe’s new collection of handcrafted animal-shaped purses, charms and bookmarks (available December 13 & 14; call 212 872 2568 for more details).
So take a moment. Sit down. Think about your family and friends… what makes each of them singular, unique. Write it down, make a list. Then flip through the album on the left for ideas on how you can redefine pleasantly surprised.
