The Gift of Style
With a roster of top brands and celebrated designers, Macy’s is the ultimate destination for items to elevate that special someone’s wardrobe this holiday season. For her, handbags, shoes, jewelry and always-on-trend athleisure items will inspire pure joy. Jewel-embellished slip-ons from MICHAEL Michael Kors are chic, sporty and rendered in luxe velvet, applying the must-have fabric of the season in a unique and unexpected way. A signature Mickey Mouse wristlet in a bright hue from Coach is whimsical, practical and stylish, while a funnel neck hoodie and tights from Nike, or Calvin Klein Performance logo joggers and sweaters can take her from yoga to brunch with flair. Give her the gift of both comfort and glamour with a pair of fabulous faux fur-trimmed glitter moccasins from I.N.C. International Concepts.
For him, a velvet sport coat from Alfani immediately adds panache to any look. Pair the coat with bar III slim trousers and a tie for a more formal approach, or layer with jeans and loafers or boots for a look that is relaxed, yet polished and urbane. Polarized aviators from Ray-Ban are a classic, but undeniably sleek and stylish way to protect his eyes from the sun, and a zipper slim billfold wallet from Kenneth Cole Reaction is an excellent way to update a staple he uses every day.
Beauty and grooming are the finishing touches, and Macy’s has a wide array of fabulous products that are sure to delight. The Impulse Beauty artistry palette and 9-piece brush set allows her to experiment with countless looks in an awe-inspiring number of colors and shades. For him, Kiehl’s 4-piece Hydration Hits set gives the oft-coveted gift of smooth and healthy skin.
Techies of all ages will be thrilled to receive the latest gizmos and gadgets Macy’s has to offer. The brand new Michael Kors Access Bradshaw digital smart watches pack as big a fashion punch as they do a tech one—the customizable smartwatches track activity and fitness goals, offer notifications, and so much more; they connect your worlds and help you stay on track, while also being stunningly beautiful pieces of jewelry. Brookstone’s quirky cat ear headphones are wireless, and can also project music from the cat ears, which means you can take the party wherever you go and share the joy with everyone around. Gift the virtual reality experience with the Samsung Gear VR Oculus, which has mind-blowing graphics, and wow someone special with the Star Shower, a holiday motion laser lights projector that blankets surface areas with myriad stars at incredible range.
Macy’s has a plethora of toys, kits and doodads sure to make the laughs last all holiday season. Children’s eyes will shine bright with an engineering kit from Little Bits, where kids can build their own functioning robots, or with the 3Doodler pen, which allows them to create 3D art of most anything their imaginations can conjure. The Portable Color Me Happy coloring books are a cut above the rest, offering kids elaborate images designed to make them feel energetic, engaged and accomplished. The Cate and Levi penguin sewing kit lets kids construct their own plush penguin best friend and the ukulele stencil kit from Kid Made Modern lets kids paint their instruments to match their personalities before they jam out. Kids of all ages can discover trolls’ magic with their very own plush. In celebration of DreamWorks Animation’s Trolls, in theaters Nov. 4, Macy’s has brought Poppy, Branch, Guy Diamond and the other adorable characters to life for kids to love this holiday season.
