Holiday Gift Guide with Fashion Utah

Two of our favorite trends this season are winter whites and oxblood red. Perfect colors for the holiday, they are great options for fashion lovers as stocking stuffers and gifts. The colors are classic and neither color will ever truly go out of style - which makes a perfect gift for that loving BFF or trendy sister-in-law. So, check out some of our local recommendations for that special friend in your life and perhaps pick up one or two for you!


1. White Bib Necklace at The Nest On Main { $15 } Bib necklaces are all the rage this season, so throw this in your girlfriend or daughter's stocking for great style. 

2. Key West Wrap by Tiia Lin { $60 } This vegan, hand-knit scarf is made by Utah local Tiia Lin. The lightweight cotton will give a unique look and keep its wearer warm this winter. Perfect for a student or anyone spending time out in the cold, throw this scarf in a backpack for an extra gift-giving layer. 

3. Red Teardrop Earrings by Hoopla Hoopla { $12 } Painted and sealed, these metal earrings give a great flash of color. They are popping up in Utah boutiques and sell out fast, so for those girls who love bling (but need something they can wear to work), try these statement earrings. 

4. White Ava Dress at Whimsy Lane { $56 } This white dress comes complete with a bubble hem and pleats for a feminine feel. Throw it on with colorful accessories to spice it up for working women, then package it up for under the tree. 

5. The Flektor Watch in Blood Red by (kno)name { $40 } What teenager doesn't want to feel like a secret agent as they roam the halls of school? Both a mini-mirror and watch, boys and girls will dig its unique design. 

6. Love You To The Moon And Back Jar Candle - Cupcake Scent at Got Beauty { $20 } Love cupcakes? Want to eat them all the time? Buy this candle instead. It is a great gift for your party hostess. 

7. Goji & Tarocco Vulspa Candle at Got Beauty { $24 } One of our personal all-time favorite candles, consider giving this candle to that BFF or mother needing a spa night at home. The aroma is heavenly and relaxing. Then throw in a good book and bath salts to perfect the evening. 

8. Deborah Lippmann Ruby Red Slippers Nail Polish from Got Beauty { $18 } Long wearing and quick drying, this polish is perfect for the girl who loves to go out on the town. Throw it in Got Beauty's free leopard wrapping to add a spark to her night. 

9. Red Long-Sleeved Blouse at Apricot Lane in Provo Sequins and collars are all the rage this season. If your friend or sister even reads a fashion blog, this is the blouse for her! 

10. OPI An Affair In Red Square at Got Beauty { $8.50 } Classic yet modern traditional, this red shade is perfect for the modest, trendy woman. Consider spoiling that mother-in-law with a great new color she can wear around town. 

11. Trade Winds Dress at Shabby Apple { $68 } Is your BFF still dreaming of the summer and merely "surviving" the winter? This sweet dress is light and airy for the spring, but easily convertible for winter looks with a great pair of boots. 

12. All The Way Down Top at Cotton Blossom { $43 } This sweet blouse is perfect for the younger girls you're buying for. Target tweens and teens as the lace will make an older woman look aged. It is perfet for that cousin or neice heading back to school after the break. 

13. All Aboard Dress at Shabby Apple { $109.00 } We all have a classy lady in our lives who motivates us to be our best. This dress is dignified and is perfect for the wisest, yet modern woman in your life. 

14. Etta Ruana Sweater by Tiia Lin { $130 } Perfect for your legging-wearing, skinny-jean-loving friends, this cozy sweater will take your girlfriend from the grocery store to dinner with the girls. This is a perfect gift for any lady who loves comfort, warmth and style. 

15. Table Topic Cube at Got Beauty For all your party-hosting friends, this great conversation starter is perfect for any family who loves to conversate or for any get-together that rejects television and electronics as party entertainment. 


I love the idea of supporting local businesses this holiday season and I think this collection of items, put together by Fashion Utah, is a great representation of what the "beehive state" has to offer! Fashion Utah has teamed up with Apricot Lane Provo for a "Shop Local" campaign.  No matter where you live, I think it's important to help area businesses thrive in your community.  So, as you finish up your last-minute Christmas shopping, try to find a few gifts from a local business...I'm sure they will appreciate your support!
