#GiftInColor: Holiday Gift Ideas in Metallic Hues

This Year, Give Them Something That Really Shines

By Taylor Davies | Last Updated: Jan 30 2019 | 2 min read

For this season’s #giftincolor gift guide series on Style Girlfriend, we hand-selected more than 100 amazing holiday gift ideas for both guys and gals. Every Tuesday we’re launching a brand new guide that’s themed to a different color. Check out our past weeks featuring red, orange + yellowgreenlight blue and indigo. Up today? Metallics.

#GIFTINCOLOR Metallic 2000xClutch, Coach | jeans, Paige Denim | assorted sunglasses, Knockaround | wireless speaker, Jawbone | headphones, Frends

jacket, Ovadia & Sons (similar) | skincare (skin and lips), Buckler’s | tablet, Samsung | cuffs (one and two), George Frost

bracelet, Lulu Frost | skincare products (one, two and three, Lab Series | necklace, Lulu Frost | playing cards, Anthropologie

The holiday season is already a time that conjures up visions of glittering tinsel and shining ornaments, so creating a gift guide that encourages you to tie up all that sparkle with a bow and give it to someone you love is only natural. Sure, glamorous jewelry is a given this week (hello, Lulu Frost!), but I also assembled a selection of unexpectedly mirrored, shimmering, reflective, and all-out gilded gift ideas.

The centerpiece of this week’s #giftincolor guide is what I like to think of as the ‘Holy Grail’ of luggage. This Rimowa rolling suitcase is part-sleek lockbox of carry-on belongings, and part-seriously stylish accessory. You’ll certainly never miss this luggage on the baggage carousel…and neither will anyone else. Be ready to induce some pretty intense traveler jealousy.

No matter what, metallic gifts beg to be looked at, whether it’s at a party (wearing those metallic Paige Denim jeans, or by giving the host or hostess metallic playing cards) or out and about (playful reflective Knockaround sunglasses for day, a metallic track jacket for the gym).

Perhaps the ultimate proof that good things come in small packages and are often rendered in gold and silver—you can’t miss with an ultra-luxurious, indulgent gift like a Montblanc pen or classic Shinola Watch.

Go ahead, get you shine on.

Tell me:

How much of your gift shopping is already done? (Be honest…)
