So the big day is coming and you have to think about a gift for this special occasion. The problem is, you have no idea about what to give your best friend, cousin, aunt or girlfriend… This year you want both to please and to surprise too ! Something less difficult to choose than perfume, but more personal than chocolate and flowers, why not opt for a scarf ? And today Comtesse Sofia is going to show you how a scarf may be the perfect gift you are looking for.
1. A great gift where you don’t worry about size
You want to please but you are afraid to fail?
I’m pretty sure you have experienced that moment of frustration when you were in front of a beautiful belt, perfect for a gift, but you had to back off because you didn’t dare asking “Remind me, dear, what’s your size again?”. With a scarf, this problem doesn’t exist, you are sure the size will fit!
Also, a scarf is several gifts in one! Because, if you followed our past articles (How to tie a scarf : wear a scarf as a belt, Different ways to wear a scarf : headscarf), you know now that a scarf is a beautiful accessory with hundreds of ways to wear it.
2. Choosing the color
You can use two criterias : the skin tone or the personal style. Cool colors will work best with pale skin tones when mat skin tones will prefer warmer colors. These are the basic principles, but if you want to learn more about the choice of colors, you can read our post: Choosing the best scarf color to learn more about this topic. After that you will become an expert!
3. The Magic Gift (For those who wanted to quit after reading the words “choosing the colours”)
If all those stories of colours and skin tone matching are beyond you, you still have the chance to offer the best gift ever !
The first one is, our magic scarf, the Afternoon On Carmine Street, that works with every skin tone, hair, eyes and illuminates the woman who wears it. (Look at our street style photos, or the bloggers who wore it).
The second one, is the gift card that will please and let your special someone be free to choose his/her own gift.
Our bonus tips : What about men? How do you surprise them?
With scarves too! Just follow the guide!
For a man with a classic fashion style, we advice you to choose a natural silk scarf of calm colors and discreet prints so he can match it to his outfits easily. However, if Mister prefers a more casual style, you can succumb to a cotton or linen scarf with crinkle effect, plain or checked. And a great tendency for the most chic of men, is to have a woolen scarf from our collection, but with more neutral tones (you can find some photos here). And the icing on the cake : you can sometimes steal it from your Monsieur!
