Before we knock out everyone special on your Christmas list in one post (yes, this gift is that good), I just have to tell you all how unexpected and sweet your comments were on Wednesday’s post. I appreciate every kind word, so from me to you, thank YOU! I have the best readers EVER! Lori B, congratulations! You are going to look great in your new holiday dress. Oh, and this post has a giveaway, too! Ok, let’s get started…
What is the one thing all these pictures have in common? Yup, the same Ray-Ban sunglasses! Can you all believe this collage is not even the half of the pictures? I had many more that I didn’t include! And this is only a collage of my most recent pair! I also had the “New Large Wayfarers” (now 25% off) that I used to wear all the time (remember?), and I had tons of pictures of those, too-here, here and here. And when I first started the blog, I wore and loved my Aviators (eeek- look if you must – here)! Obviously, I’m a huge fan of Ray-Ban and Nordstrom. The selection of Ray-Bans at Nordstrom is great and so many are on sale right now! I would happily be wearing all of these sunglasses to this day (because they are still all “in style”), but… I’ve lost every single pair. I cringe as I write this. It’s embarrassing. Don’t judge. I’m a terribly absent minded person. It’s not that I’m ditzy, I’m just forgetful. I wish I could tell you how I lost them, but I have no idea.
Now this, my friends, is why Ray-Ban sunglasses are your foolproof Christmas gift for the special ones in your life: Every single pair of those sunglasses are still in style. This is precisely why I went on the search for another pair! I decided I wanted to go back to their classic Wayfarers after seeing them everywhere on a recent trip to Chicago (post here).
Wayfarers just make sense! They are, as I’ve said before, a reasonably priced pair of designer sunglasses (as opposed to the $500+). In this picture I’m wearing these.
They are good quality, and they have the polarized option (important for the sportsmen in your life). They come in lots of different FUN! options, like this pair that’s covered in the same type of leather on a football. In this picture I’m wearing these.
But most importantly, they are classic and universally flattering on everyone- including men! This is precisely why my father-in-law’s girlfriend gave him her old Ray-Bans to wear! Yes, you heard me right! It’s the one pair of sunglasses I would tell you to keep if I was going through your sunglass collection, because they stand the test of time! Update your husbands, father’s, and father-in-laws sunglass game! Let’s be honest, most guys don’t intentionally go out and buy sunglasses, which makes them a great gift! They will feel cool, and you will have 3 people checked off your list! In the picture my husband is wearing these from the women’s department. 🙂
Before reading this post, did you guys know that Ray-Ban Wayfarers are for both men and women?!?! Check this out- here are the same sunglasses in both the mens and womens department!
My husband and I are wearing the 50mm Classic Wayfarers. They come in all sizes (just in case you like the bigger sunglasses on men), but they still have the same classic Wayfarer shape! Shop all Mens Ray-Ban Wayfarers (here), but here are my picks for the men:
Now, back to us girls. How excited would you be if you got a new pair of Ray-Ban sunglasses for Christmas?!? Why not ask for a pair or get a pair for your sister, sister-in-law, or mom (up her sunglasses game- she trusts you)? You know you would be happy with the gift, so wouldn’t she, too? While I was searching for the perfect Wayfarers, I ordered a whole bunch of Ray-Bans from Nordstrom and decided to order this Highstreet pair that I have on in the picture. I wasn’t going to keep them because I was only looking for one pair, but my husband and sister-in-law loved them… so, well, I had to…
You can’t go wrong with this foolproof gift! I personally have (or have had -eeek!) and can recommend all of these Ray-Bans. Starting with the wayfarers:
There you have it gals, Wayfarers are a foolproof gift for everyone on your list!
