If You’re Hard Pressed for Gift Ideas…
You can’t go wrong with a plaid or tartan scarf. Cashmere if you’re feeling flush, lambswool if you’re on a budget. They’re both great, and the recipient is sure to be pleased either way.
Clearly, I love scarves. They’re an excellent way to add some color to an otherwise drab or conservative outfit, and they’re extraordinarily pragmatic in so far as keeping your neck warm is essential for keeping one’s core temperature well-regulated in cold weather.
The majority of the scarves pictured above were purchased over the years at Sierra Trading Post, one of my absolute favorite places to buy new things on deep discount. You can always count on them to have Johnston’s of Elgin (Made in Scotland) cashmere scarves in stock (though right now there aren’t a ton of available patterns), as well as lambswool ones. Another brand worth checking out on STP is Moon of England, especially for their lambswool tartan scarves.  Although they’re a little on the short side (50”), they keep one quite toasty and are eminently affordable ($15 w/o any additional discounts). And though I don’t own one, the Moon of England heathered cashmere scarf looks quite nice, and is currently even more affordable than the Johnston’s of Elgin ones.
Additionally, if you sign up for STP’s ‘Deal Flyer’ you are bound to get some nice discount codes, which will bring the prices for these scarves down even further.

    Admittedly, they’re not quite so obnoxious as the scarves I generally wear … but, still. Nice.
