Shopping for fashion people is no easy feat. They know what they want, and they expect their gift-givers to know it, too. If telepathy isn’t on your shortlist of things to learn before 2020, then not to worry — we created a cheatsheet with a fashion-obsessed New Yorker who makes a living off her understanding of what looks good. Maddie Greer, the blogger behind Berouged, is just that person. We asked her to scope out Bloomingdale’s to find nine items she’d be happy to give her most discerning friends this year.
Part phone charger, part catch-all tray, this phone-ready nightstand tray gets its luxe finish from Italian leather, and it comes in white, pink, and black. “Its sleek design would look amazing in any home,” says Greer.
A personal favorite of Greer’s, this Kiehl’s Since 1851 face mask is made with avocado oil and extract, as well as evening primrose oil. “It’s perfect for the colder months, as it adds hydration to your skin,” says Greer. “It’s great for the friend or family member looking for a little more ‘me time.’”
For a casual menswear gift, you can’t go wrong with Greer’s pick, the new-classic Air Max 90. “They’re a great addition to any streetwear look,” Greer says — although these days, there’s few places the sneaker won’t go.
With its consistently high-quality, ultra-effective products, La Mer never fails to deliver. “Its Regenerating Serum is like magic in a bottle,” says Greer. “I would gift this to my fellow beauty-lovers anytime.”
Tiffany & Co. recently launched its first men’s fragrance, and Greer is all over it. “A blue sequoia base gives it a modern woody note,” she says. The classic Tiffany Blue bottle also looks great in a bathroom display or on a nightstand.
Maje is one of Greer’s favorite brands, and she recommends this plush coat for your favorite faux-fur lover. It’s a cold-weather consolation prize they’ll be wearing until spring.
“Polaroid recently came out with the new OneStep 2, and I have one myself,” says Greer of the nostalgic camera. “You can even buy different colored film packs to change it up!”
“Cardinal of Canada has perfected the details in its Cashmere Topcoat,” says Greer, who’d pick the camel color for an extra-luxurious gift. “It’s perfectly tailored and timeless.”
A favorite way for Greer to end her day, this jade roller is a must-have for skin-care lovers who embrace beauty rituals. “With the addition of your favorite facial oil, this tool helps decrease puffiness and even helps minimize the look of fine lines,” she says.
For your most fashion-forward friends, you can’t go wrong with Anine Bing. “The brand is the perfect combination of timeless and bold pieces,” says Greer. Her current favorite: this sweater.
For all of these gifts and more, shop Bloomingdale’s in-store and online. It’s a one-stop gifting destination.
