Well we’re officially about two weeks away from Christmas guys. How’s that gift list of yours working out? Mine’s…a work in progress, and it’s seriously crunch time since we are flying to Louisiana for Christmas and have less time to procrastinate. If some of your nearest and dearest have you stumped in the gift department this year, today I’m chatting about one of my absolute favorite gifts in past years. (Well, besides my engagement ring.) And if the photos above didn’t give it away, I’m talking about something I pretty much never leave home without, my Ray-Ban Aviator sunglasses.
I’ve received Ray-Ban sunglasses from my parents for Christmas twice now, and both times it’s been exactly what I wanted. (That usually happens when you pick them out yourself.) After the first pair (these classics) went missing, I got this pair that folds up teeny tiny a couple of Christmases ago and have worn them nonstop ever since. Recently though, after an unsupervised spray-painting incident (let’s just say DIY isn’t really my thing), I realized I probably needed to scoop up a new pair and discovered THE coolest thing. Y’all, did you know you can customize your own shades through the Ray-Ban website? You pick your style, lenses, rim color, case color, and can even add customized engraving – making all those decisions is the hardest part. I don’t even want to tell you how much time I spent clicking back and forth from this lens to that one, mirrored or polarized. I ended up choosing a pink blue gradient lens that’s polarized, and I LOVE them. If you’re looking for a personalized gift that she (or he!) will love this year, I’d definitely recommend checking this out. (Also something to note – even with the custom choices, it’s still free shipping and free returns – always a bonus.)
But if the customization thing is a bit too much for you, then here are a few others I’d recommend checking out:
@COLLECTION – These are exclusive styles that feature brand new details like leather tips on the aviator. So chic.
Hexagonal and Octagonal Flat Lenses – For the trendy fashionista
Signet – Throwback style
Clubround – Brand new take on the Clubmaster
Original Wayfarer – Always a crowd pleaser
