Like most women I know, I'm drawn to things that sparkle, glitter, or shine. I'm especially drawn to everyday items that are made that much better by their addition. Sparkly things make great gifts as the recipient usually had opted for a more staid version but secretly wishes she'd bought the one that's more fun. Like the simple heather grey beanie made opulent with the addition of jewels. The mitten, luxuriously glorious when covered in crystals, or a belt encrusted with glitter. Hot beverages just got festive with some gold decadently dripping down the side of a cup. Too bad most men are sparkle averse. Some are even afraid of color. For them I found a gorgeous double faced cashmere plaid scarf in tones of grey, and some fancy earbuds.
