Holiday sale season has arrived and despite the overwhelming amount of merchandise out there that could easily overwhelm, I head out the door with a simple goal in mind – look for unique gifts that will make the recipient say “Wow!” (Hopefully :) ) Basics are great but I love a gift that makes a standout statement. Maybe it’s a handbag that is distinct in design because it has an unusual size or shape. Maybe it’s a coat that comes in a crazy cool color. Or maybe it’s a cozy sweater that’s just plain, well, cozy. The items I’ve rounded up below check all the right boxes and best of all they won’t break the bank. That’s thanks to the sales going on at Nordstrom, Net-A-Porter and Saks Fifth Avenue.
