J. Crew Camp Socks, $16.50
Remember how you used to groan when you unwrapped a present from your grandmother and she had gotten you socks? Don’t worry, these aren’t like grandma’s. Not only are they beyond cozy, they’re fashionable as well. Wear them peeking out under some booties or over your favorite pair of tights. What’s coolest about these is they’re made by the last sock mill in Vermont. How many socks can claim that?
These adorable designer fragrances are the perfect way to find your new signature scent—or just smell differently every day of the week. After you decide which perfume is the best, turn in the enclosed voucher for a free rollerball. Dabbing some fragrance onto your wrists may only take a couple of seconds, but you’ll feel decidedly more flirty and feminine as you go about your day.
