Gift Guide: Gifts for a fashion lover

Love Quotes scarves, $80

Scarves are an easy gift for the best-dressed on your gift list, but Love Quotes' scarves, a line based in New York City, offer a little something special. Besides the tag with an encouraging quote about love attached to the scarf, 10 percent of each Love Quotes purchase benefits a charity for children.

Mittens by Duffy, $65

These long winter gloves by the luxury design line Duffy are cute, cozy and, most importantly, cashmere.

Thread on Grandview

1306 Grandview Ave., Grandview


Customizable state necklaces, $14

You can pick one miniature brass state or many to put on a single chain necklace. Ohio necklaces are popular, but consider adding some sentimental significance to your picks by selecting states that you and the recipient have lived or traveled together.


787 N. High St., Short North


DIY cross-stitch iPhone case, $28

These iPhone cases could be given as they are, free from stitching, allowing the gift-getter to create his or her own design, or you could get personal and make your own (cross-stitch is deceptively easy). Tigertree is even hosting a workshop to cross-stitch a phone case on Dec. 5 (call to reserve a spot in the class); the evening includes cocktails that will help quell any lingering fear of needle and thread.


787 N. High St., Short North


"Illustration Now! Fashion," $60

The Wexner Center store is brimming with coffee table books about fashion. We love this beautiful tome by Julius Wiedemann that looks at the history of fashion illustration from the 17th century to today, including work by the best in international modern fashion design illustration.
