GUIDE TO SANE GIFT SHOPPING & GIVING

FRUGALIST GIFT SPRING/SUMMER ESSENTIALS GEN Y AND GEN Z STYLE

 FRUGALISTA GIFT SPRING/SUMMER ESSENTIALS FOR LATE GEN Y’S, EARLY GEN Z’S

A few Gen Y AND Gen Z’s said they’d like to see a take on the essentials with a closer fit to their sensibilities. They’re noted as sophisticated, tech savvy and immune to most things traditional. They blaze their own trails in style and, well, everything. Not that other women do not. These young women do it with it their own special brand of ‘tude.  All of the selections here are from Romwe or STYLESOFIA, but popular retailers such as Charlotte Russo also offer some perfect styles for the Gen Y’s and Z’s.

This Leopard Printed Sleeveless Tank Dress fits the bill. The deep scoop and I-shaped back make it both demure and sexy.  The acrylic/spandex fabric should give it a great flow and feel when she strolls into the do.

Gifting a Y/Z with shoes would be an iffy proposition. Super eclectic comes to mind. However, the 10 Top Spring Essential for women—the Shoes post lists plenty of retailers with eclectic choices. You might let her browse and pick some faves first though for the wedge and strappy sandal Spring Essentials.  Retailers, such as CharlotteRusso, are also good bets for shoes to please Y/Zers. Like this Sueded Zigzag Glitter Wedge

  for $43. 

Bonus 1: At this posting, 6/4/12, Charlotte Russo offers “Buy 1, Get 1 for $12.50.” They also have a sale for more than half off of over 130 selections At those prices, you might be able to delight her with two pairs.

 BONUS 2:  ROMWE offers free shipping worldwide, no minimum.

The same goes for purses, as to style choices in the previous Spring Essential posts.  Although, the purses below practically jumped off the page as a potential Y/Z candidate.

 

The Studded Heart Purse has a detachable gold chain, gold studs and zips and the bottom. Non-traditional right? And it’s small.

Heart Shaped Purse – Romwe

 $15 stylesofia.com  


This pink number is small and adds a pop of Spring color in popular jelly.

These selections will give you a good start to pleasing your GenY/Z recipients. Plus, give you some go-to places for other occasions.
