If She Loves a Good Red Lip

Givenchy Rouge Interdit Satin Lipstick in True Red

She’ll appreciate this luxurious black rose face mask, which will give her petal-soft skin.

If She’s Always Cold

There’s still one more month of winter, so a thick, warm puffer in slick black is stylish and (somewhat) practical.

If She’s Into Trends

Burberry Laminated Tartan Wool Trench Coat
$2,695 at Burberry

This laminated trench has the Matrix-vibes that seems to be everywhere right now, but it’s not so trendy that she can’t wear it in five years.

Loewe’s newest shape can be carried as a tote in your hand or worn as a cross body, and it happens to be a street-style favorite.
