One thing everyone needs in the winter is a scarf - and the warmer, the better! So for those hard-to-shop for women on your list, a handmade scarf is a safe option.  Here are three styles we found on Etsy that we’d certainly love to receive!

Hunter Green hand knitted long scarf with cable pattern - $90 by DagnyKnit

Chunky crochet cowl infinity scarf - $55 by CandacesCloset

Swedish-born designer Viveka Bergstrom moved from Stockholm to Paris to launch her namesake costume jewelry collection in 1994, and the line has gained a strong following Europe among customers and industry influencers alike. You won’t find her post-modern jewelry in many stores in the US (yet!), but Urban Outfitters does carry a small selection of covetable pieces that would make the perfect affordable yet luxe holiday gifts. We can only hope that more local stores will bring more of her unique “spaceship princess”-inspired pieces here soon!

Shown: Viveka Bergstrom Crystal Chocker, $68; Viveka Bergstrom Rectangle Ring, $78; Viveka Bergstrom Triangle Ring, $71; all at

A style that stands out is the Carola blag (pictured). Made with crocodile-printed cow leather, the satchel has a detachable and adjustable shoulder strap that makes it your perfect new everyday go-to. The brass hook closure adds a unique, fashion-forward element to this must-have bag. Find it at Malababa’s e-commerce shop,

She launched her namesake jewelry line in 2008 in Los Angeles, and her pieces quickly garnered attention from celebrities and media. Her goal is simple: make jewelry a girl would never want to take off, and that would stand out from the crowds. We love the glam combination of boho- and rocker-chic elements that create her unique aesthetic. Here are some of our favorite pieces, available at

You might not be able to say it ten times fast, but Kevork Kiledjian is sure to be a designer name you’ll hear over and over again in the seasons to come.
