It’s that time of year again, that’s right, time to holiday shop. Whether you have a special girl who has just recently come into your life or maybe you have been married for 50 years, there is no other present that ranks as high on your holiday shopping list as the gift for the lady most dear to your heart.
There is no need to stress about finding her the perfect present because Tempe has some of the best shopping areas in town, such as Tempe Marketplace, Mill Avenue and Arizona Mills, where you can find a unique and special gift that she is sure to love.
Charming Charlie, located in The District at Tempe Marketplace, makes finding a gift easy with one simple question, “what is your favorite color, love?” Charming Charlie is easy to navigate with each section organized by color with a selection of earrings, bracelets, necklaces, rings, purses, clutches and more. The over sized statement ring is a great pick to give an outfit extra pizzazz. Or, try a sparkly clutch purse that she can tote around the fabulous holiday parties this season. The Kay Jewelry Outlet at Arizona Mills is another great stop for jewelry at a great price. As well as classic diamond selections, they have other gemstones like black rutilated quartz or grey moonstone that gives the gift of jewelry a unique twist. An over sized boyfriend style watch, like the Citizen women’s watch, is another great option.
If clothing is her weapon of choice, Mill Avenue boutiques like Divaz and Pitaya are both great choices that will leave her wondering how you became such a fashion guru. At Pitaya, you will be sure to find something unique because they change out their merchandise weekly. Like Charming Charlie, they divide their items by color, making for easy shopping. Have one of the helpful salespeople from Divaz pick out a piece that will really wow your lady love. This season is all about the “holiday dress” with a high-low hem line, in a color like eggplant purple. Divaz also has a second Tempe location at Tempe Marketplace.
There is nothing like a little pampering to relax during the stress of the holidays, Massage Envy offers gift cards that include gratuity so your lady can take the day off and head to the spa for a massage, facial or maybe both. You can also find her favorite beauty products from Ulta Beauty, located in Tempe Marketplace. Ulta is known for amazing holiday deals and is the seamless stop for top beauty lines such as Smashbox, Bar Minerals and Philosophy. A great deal featured by these lines are gift sets that cost less than half of the retail value of what you get in the box. The Studio Pops For Lips gift set from Smashbox is a particularly good pick, featuring five of their most popular shades of lip gloss.
To show her how much you care, spoil her a little bit, or a lot a bit, for all the great things she does all year round with something special this holiday season.
