Gift Guide: Proper Topper

With only four days left until Christmas Eve, this is the last day that you can purchase a gift and have it to the recipient on time.  Unless, of course, you like trading your first born to the powers that be at Fed-Ex for overnight shipping.  Who knew mailing one box could be so expensive?

Anyway, because I know that some of you procrastinators still have gifts to buy, I thought that I would ask a few local retailers for their suggestions.  Today’s featured shop?  Proper Topper.

Box of 5 Magic Tricks ($14): The gift for the mischievous boy or the man who has everything. A bit of nostalgia in a box—harmless, clean fun for a steal!

Carolina Amato fingerless gloves, slouch beanie, and infinity scarf ($38): A cozy and stylish accessory trio—warm and soft (and the gloves keep your hands free for holiday-texting). [also featured on our blog!]

Hugh & Crye handmade ties ($45): Simple and elegant limited-edition ties from D.C. locals Hugh & Crye.

Tribeca Soft Clutch ($128): A beautiful splurge—supple leather, multi-functionality, wraps up in a cinch for under-Christmas-tree placement… [also featured on our blog]

A.V. Max bib necklace ($110): For her post-holiday soirees.

To purchase any of these gifts, or to choose another lovely present, visit Proper Topper’s Dupont circle location at 1350 Connecticut Ave NW.  They’re open Monday-Friday 10AM to 9PM.
