Christmas Wishlist

Everything you need for everyone on your list

Christmas is barely two months away, and we are all on the hunt for the perfect gifts for the special people who have made it onto our ‘Nice’ list. No one wants to give generic, run-of-the-mill gifts to the most precious ones in our lives – those who make our heart beat a little faster, make us laugh a little louder, and make us smile a little wider. Choosing a gift takes time… and unfortunately, not all of us have a lot of time on our hands.

Lucky for us, there is a place we can go that has done most of the hard work for us. They have sourced exquisite items that we will need this Christmas – everything from home decorations to holiday clothes, and lots of fun toys, too. Their discerning eye has, in a sense, curated a collection from which we can choose the gifts we want to give.

Rustan’s welcomed the merriest of seasons over the weekend of October 20-21 as they unveiled their always-fantastic-and-wonderfully-whimsical Christmas windows. The windows give you a glimpse of the treasures that await within the store walls.

If you’re planning the family party, you can head to the Christmas Shop and choose which tree and design aesthetic suits you best. The White and Gold Christmas Tree is a perfect choice – classic colors and wonderful ornaments. If you’d like to spruce up your Christmas table, the Eme Eleven Rose 24pc Cutlery Set is a good choice. For a touch whimsy, add the Swarovski Bell Jar Christmas Tree & Santa to your centerpiece.

For the man in the family whose work involves a lot of travel, why not put the Simon Carter Plane Print Dress Shirt under the tree this year? The print is amusing and just right for the holiday traveler. For the lady of the house, the Aidan Mattox Strapless Long Dress Blush is a perfect choice for a holiday dinner. It is fabulous but won’t take away from the real star of the evening – the lady, of course.

For the extra special gift for your spouse or significant other, a stop by the Rustan’s Silver Vault is a must. Thanks to their discerning taste, you’ll have several options to choose from. The Montblanc Heritage Spider Fountain Pen or the Montblanc Automatic Chronograph 1858? The Tiffany & Co. Color Block passport cover in leather (of course it is Tiffany blue in color) or the Tiffany Paper Flowers diamond cluster necklace in platinum?  Choices abound and the time you spend perusing the options will be delightful.

Let’s not forget the youngest ones in the family, those whose eyes widen with the true joy of Christmas. Paper Blush Nohoo Crab Backpacks are a fun option, and for the creative ones in the family, the LEGO City Cargo Train will keep them occupied while they build.

And if you get hungry while shopping, fret not, for you can stop by the Rustan’s Christmas Café to experience their new menu. Shopping can be tiring, and what better way to get your second wind than with a scrumptious snack and a refreshing beverage?

We won’t give away all the secrets that Rustan’s has prepared for the holidays because discovery while shopping is part of the fun. Just trust us when we say that a trip to Rustan’s should definitely be on your shopping itinerary this season. Don’t forget to pick up a little something for yourself while you’re at it. Happy holidays!
