The holidays are here and for those that like to leave things to the very last minute — you’re in luck. Stroll the streets of the Miami Design District and you’ll be able to cross off all the gifts on your list just in time to sneak them under the tree before anyone notices. To make your trip most efficient, we’ve made you a cheat sheet of presents that will bring delight to anyone who opens them.
For the Traveler
With impeding travel upon us, the one thing that often kills the excitement of an upcoming trip is the stress of packing for it. Treat your jet-setting friends and loved ones to Paravel Packing Cubes, available at the goop GIFT pop-up store. The set of three lightweight zippered cases save space when packing and eliminate digging through suitcases to find items.
When touring a city the last thing any travel buff wants to be is bogged down with a heavy tote or backpack. Gift them a Gucci belt bag designed in collaboration between Gucci and Spanish designer Coco Capitan and exclusive to the Design District store. The hands-free, clip-around-your-waist pack showcases the Spanish artist’s offbeat sense of humor.
For the Kids
Hopefully the young people in your life won’t have to deal with Miami traffic with the new Saab Roadster ride on toy. This wooden and metal must-have is designed based on the very first Saab — Sixten Sason's prototype 92001 — and will provide hours of fun scooting around. Find it at Genius Jones.
Start ‘em young with style and red bottoms with the goop x Christian Louboutin limited-edition mini Mary Jane crib shoe with a handmade bow. These gold stunners will have every little lady wearing them be the most stylish on the playground.
For the Hostess
Warm up any home with the Jonathan Adler Holiday Hearth candle that looks as beautiful as it smells. The gold vessel emits scents of the season with pine and evergreen trees, winter berries, cinnamon, clove, and a hint of winter snow.
Nothing dresses up a sink more than a luxurious hand wash and hand cream. Aesop’s Resurrection Aromatique Hand Wash and Hand Balm are perfect gift for those who like to entertain. The gentle hand wash formula contains oils of orange, rosemary and lavender to effectively cleanse the hands without drying them out and the hand cream has a blend of fragrant botanicals and skin-softening emollients to soothe skin and cuticles.
For Your Man
Stumped on what the get the man in your life? Creed just introduced its first major men’s scent in 8 years: Creed Viking. This powerful scent combines Calabrian bergamot, Sicilian lemon, and La Réunion baie with peppercorn, Bulgarian rose, and peppermint along with Indian sandalwood, Haitian vetiver, Indian patchouli, and lavandin absolute for an irresistible smell. The bottle itself is a work of art as it is designed in partnership with Pochet de Courval, the nearly 400-year-old luxury glassmaker outside of Paris and the House of Creed’s long-time collaborator.
For Your Woman
Famed French lingerie and swimwear brand Eres just opened its doors in the District and you can’t go wrong with a sophisticated set, be it lingerie or a bikini. The exquisitely designed pieces will make any woman feel their best from the bedroom to the beach.
For The Fitness Fan
Want to make the workout junkie squat jump for joy? Stuff their stockings with class cards to Ahana Yoga, Orangetheory Fitness or a training session at dbc fitness. Add in a jump rope from Louis Vuitton to add stylish sweat session or even the Louis Vuitton’s ping-pong set for some friendly competition.
