Style File: Gift Ideas
It's time to start thinking about the perfect gift for everyone on your holiday list, but you might not have to brave the crowds at the mall. To get something cool this year 7's Belkys Nerey gives us some unique ideas in tonight's Style File.
WSVN -- Here's some holiday cheer for you. You don't have to face the chaos at the mall to find the perfect gift.
Local Miami designer Tiffany Ortiz sells her unique jewelry at boutiques all over, she says the best bet for a woman this year personalized jewelry from her line "TAudrey."
Tiffany Ortiz, Designer, TAudrey: "Taudrey is the ultimate gift for her. There's a lot of personalized statement pieces you can choose from, from an initial necklace, it also comes in a ring, to a name plate."
And ladies if you're looking for a stylish, but economical gift for your gal pals.
Tiffany Ortiz: "You can get some stackable rings which are really in style now. Those go as low as $28 to $34."
For the fitness freaks in your life "BloqUV" activewear created by another Miami local, Corina Biton, will be the perfect fit.
Corina Biton, BloqUV "This is a great gift for someone who is active outdoors."
She says the idea behind her lightweight activewear is to look fashionable, but with major sun protection, and who doesn't need that in South Florida!
Corina Biton: "All our fabrics block 98 percent of the sun's rays. We have some fabrics that are moisture wicking, some that are quick dry, so it really depends on what the person does outside."
The clothes also come with some cool storage.
Corina Biton: "Some have pockets for iphones and blackberries, so you no longer need to put your credit card in your underwear and your keys in your shoe, we have pockets that you can put all your stuff."
If you want to pamper your man all year long, head over to the new Sloane Square Barbers and Shoppe in South Beach. As soon as the gentlemen walk in they're offered a beverage, like scotch or a beer and a comfy spot to relax. Get your guy a monthly membership package where he can get unlimited hair cuts and shaves.
Todd: "For the man who wants to come in and get cleaned up every week or get a shave a couple times a week or every day if they want to, it's the perfect gift."
Don't worry we didn't forget our four-legged friends.
The Humane Society of Broward County has some perfect pet gifts.
Cherie Wachter, Humane Society of Broward County: "One of the best kept secrets is our pet boutique. We have a huge variety of dog toys, cat toys and toys for your animal loving friends. And the best part is all the proceeds from the sales help the homeless animals here."
Some of the hot sellers are their creative, squeak toys, like a 'chewy vuitton' in the shape of a Louis handbag or how about a 'jimmy chew' or a 'vera wag?' And what dog wouldn't drink up a barkardi or "grrrrona"! Your pets will be happy way past the holidays!
All the gifts we featured are under a $100 and are either sold online or at small, local boutiques.
