Gifting in Style

In search of lovely little things that are gift worthy, subtle style that’s well-designed with a generous dose of modern luxury.

Former Harper’s Bazaar editor-in-chief Glenda Bailey has teamed up with Kansas City’s Annie Hurlbut, the founder of Peruvian Connection, to offer fans the new PC x GB Collection, which is comprised of many Peruvian-inspired alpaca signature Fair Isle pieces in bold colors. What caught my eye was the cropped Kodiak jacket in puffed leather with plush shearling trim and long sleeves, $2,495. Available at Peruvian Connection in the Crestwood Shops.

A luxurious little nest for your jewelry by leather-goods artisans Bartleby Objects is a chic addition to your bedroom decor. The leather tray is lined with alpaca, which acts as a natural metal protector so your gold, bronze, and silver pieces won’t oxidize. Small Soft Tray by Bartleby Objects, $390. Within the tray is the Roca ear cuff by Faris, $45, and the Pina Chain by Laura Lombardy, $100. All available at Finefolk, 4502 State Line Road.

A gorgeous classic, the Cintrée tank watch in a yellow-gold case, beaded crown set with a sapphire cabochon, golden dial, and brown alligator-skin strap is a men’s style, but is certainly unisex. It should make a pretty fabulous heirloom to pass down one day. Price upon request. Available at TIVOL on theCountry Club Plaza and Hawthorne Plaza.
