This super-chic update on the reading magnifier is the perfect gift even if her vision's 20/20. Each glass medallion is an authentic vintage piece that's been recycled. A handcrafted creation by Brooklyn jewelry designer Aaron Ruff, the long brass-link necklace has a worn-in oxidized finish, just like an old favorite. We adore how its topped off with off-the-moment tassel trim in this season's most-beloved shade of crimson.

With sculptural garlands of gilded curling ribbon, this season's go-to gift begs whoever's wearing it to have a little over-the-top fun. Just the sight of it makes us optimistic. Bonus: It comes in a beautiful lavender and crimson box topped off with a bow, so all you really need to do is add festoons of real curling ribbon that mirror what's inside.

We love that this beauty of a bangle is also eco-conscious, handcrafted in India of rosewood from a sustainable plantation. Decorated with rows of streetwise brass studs and rivets set in a rustic lacquered black finish, the look is casually cool. Each one-of-a-kind piece is completely unique, making it a singularly special gift.

Fallon Chain Link Bracelet Fallon Chain Link Bracelet
Here's a dashing alternative to the usual chain-link bracelet. First, you've gotta love the name of this piece ("Social Security") almost as much as the very now, covetable design. How cool is the hinged hardware and the twist of an edgy hook fastener? A wear-it-every-day bracelet is equally on target for both the traditionalist and trendy friends.

They say to give what you'd like to receive, and we can't think of anything greater than peace of mind -- particularly when it comes packaged like this.

Here's one bohemian-glam wonder that's a triple threat: adventurous and powerfully posh with a spiritual vibe.

In two words: Incredibly alluring.
