With this guide, you will find gifts that they’ll want and need!
Manage His Time
Every businessman needs to keep reliable time, but most can’t say that theirs is kept by a designer watch brand. We have our eyes on the Aquaswiss Unisex Legend watch. He will reign over time with this designer brand watch and get this…it’s on sale! Normally $1200.00, but for the holidays it’s on sale for $139.99.
Trim His Waistline
You can be assured that his waist will almost look as trim as yours in 2018, opt for fine leather and gift him a belt. We recommend that you take Jay-Z’s lead and go with American designer Tom Ford, best known for his classic and classy menswear. Just remember that when making this purchase, to have your guy’s waist measurements on-hand, otherwise they will possibly have to exchange your gift for the right size after the holidays. We recommend the Lizard T-Buckle Belt in gold and brown so that he can transition seamlessly from business to casual in timeless style.
Hold All the Cards
We know that half of the business is giving out business cards. That said someone in your office or life can benefit from this chic leather “L’Aveugle Par Amour” embossed card case by Gucci, so they can dish out business cards like a “boss.”

No, we aren’t talking diamonds, but they are a girl’s best friend! —cc’ The Legend Elizabeth Taylor. Ms. Taylor taught us well because accessories are still all the rage! A must-have for your trendy lady is the everyday minimalist pieces by NYC based designer Alibi available at DC-based boutique Redeem. These accessories are a great, subtle complement to her professional everyday look in the office on the Hill.
Your leading lady may not wear makeup every day, but we guarantee you that on one night or special occasion she will. Give her some bragging rights by buying her an item from one of the hottest makeup lines out there–The #bts is the Stunna Lip Paint in Universal Red for $24 from FENTY Beauty.
Let the record show that you can never have too many bags. With that said, every woman needs a clutch or small handbag for when she is on the go. Women on the Hill are always on the run and sometimes can’t grab everything, thus they need a small handbag or clutch for their essentials. We’re so “Blind for Love” with all things Gucci this year. The Bee Print GG Supreme Pouch for $790 is a guaranteed win for someone’s honey this holiday!
