Gucci Heart Bracelet With Gucci Trademark
Rank & Style Approved


Gucci Heart Bracelet With Gucci Trademark

WHY YOU NEED IT: Why buy her a Gucci bag when she can have this adorable heart bracelet instead? With its classic charm and versatile sterling silver shade, she'll never have to take it off. And trust us—she won't want to.

FUN FACT: This bracelet is made with hypoallergenic materials, so it won't irritate sensitive-skinned gals.

Alexander McQueen Skull Print Modal Scarf

LOVED FOR: Whether she's ties it around her neck or attaches it to her tote, this wear-with-everything scarf can add a dose of designer to whatever she wants it to—for under $300, we might add.

USERS SAID: "I love Alexander McQueen scarves. I've owned many different patterns, but this one is especially gorgeous. The color contrast is so pretty. Got many compliments!"

Tory Burch 53mm Square Sunglasses

BEST FOR: If she loves a good logo moment, you can't go wrong with these classic sunnies. Complete with a gleaming Tory Burch medallion on each side, they're a fairly practical way to rock that all-designer-everything look.

HELPFUL TIP: Can't pick a color? Tortoise is timeless and pretty much always goes with everything. Take our word for it.

Ganni Recycled Wool Knit Hat

LOVED FOR: A wool beanie basically screams cool girl, but a wool beanie that says Ganni on it? Even better.

FUN FACT: Made with 70% recycled wool, this beanie is one of the most eco-friendly options on the list.

Givenchy Logo Slide

WHY YOU NEED IT: According to our trusty algorithm, logo slides are here to stay. It may be too chilly for her to sport these beauties now, but come summer, they'll be all she wants to wear. Whether it's boyfriend jeans and a tee or a bikini by the pool, they simply work with everything—especially in this neutral colorway.

AS SEEN ON: Kim K thinks they're a great choice, too.

Gucci GG Marmont Card Case

WHY YOU NEED IT: There's nothing like unwrapping something stamped with Gucci's classic Double G logo—even if it's something simple and small. Crafted with luxe leather that coordinates with the bags of the Marmont collection (hint hint), this heirloom-quality card case is something she'll use for many years and bag changes to come.

USERS SAID: "This is my first Gucci purchase. It comes in its own little Gucci box with a dust bag. Words won’t do justice to how gorgeous this little cardholder is. The leather is of the utmost quality. It has slots for four cards so you can have the essentials, but there is also a top opening where you can fit cash or extra cards that you may need. I am beyond pleased with the Gucci card case!"

Marc Jacobs Snapshot Camera Bag

BEST FOR: If a designer bag is her biggest wish, you can't go wrong with this Marc Jacobs gem. It's relatively affordable considering its quality, and the camera silhouette is so in right now.

FUN FACT: Thanks to the trendy removable guitar strap, this bag can be worn as a crossbody or a clutch.

MZ Wallace Medium Metro Tote

FUN FACT: This bag comes with interior zip, wall, and cell-phone pockets and a removable zip-top pouch, and it's water- and stain-resistant. 

Longchamp Large Le Pliage Tote

WHAT IT DOES: There's a reason the Le Pliage collection has remained popular for so many years. Aside from being just plain iconic, it's also incredibly durable thanks to the water-resistant finish and snaps together for easy storage and travel.
