With Black Friday quickly approaching (yikes!), it's time to start thinking about holiday gifts and making sure you capture the perfect present for your loved one! We've been dreaming of a snow-white Christmas for awhile so, we've compiled a list of great gifts for him and her!

For Him...
Mark and Graham Wallet

Looking for a gift that is useful, memorable and personalized? Try Mark & Graham's Gentlemen's Pigskin Wallet! This slim wallet will hold all that he might need and the outside layer is tough against time and the elements. Personalize it with his initials for that final touch this holiday season!

For Him...
Jack Spade Briefcase or Laptop case

Is your significant other in the need of a new (maybe, more stylish) work case? We absolutely adore any of Jack Spade's collection because of the custom fabric that offers water resistant (bring it on Chicago winter!), along with a timeless menswear inspired design. Great gift for any guy who is in search of a necessary, on-the-go briefcase with a hint of style!

For Him...
Decanter with a Bottle of Whiskey

Opting for a non-apparel option this holiday season? No worries! Seek out the chicest decanter to add to his collection of wines and spirits. Pick up his favorite bottle of Whiskey (we recommend Jack Daniel's or Koval) to pair with the glass present and he will be smiling for days!

For Her...
Jewelry Box

Diamonds are a girl's best friend, right? This holiday season opt to get your special someone a gift that will store all her precious gems. When searching for a jewelry box that encompasses her style, make sure to evaluate if the box is practical and can act as decor. Once the box meets those two requirements, you've found your match and she's found her new favorite gift!

Comfy Scarf

Looking to add to your hubby's collection of accessories? Pick out a comfy scarf that will complement any casual outfit. Instead of trying to buy her shoes, clothes or a handbag, opt for a simpler yet cute option that will keep her warm and stylish during those winter months!
