Hello and welcome to – drumroll please – the gift-giving season! While some find this to be the most wonderful time of the year, others find it to be, well, a chaotic, neverending wild goose chase to find something for everyone on their list. If gift-giving isn’t your love language, you're in luck, because we have our eye on several ideas for how to stave off a bad case of the bah humbugs and get compliment-inducing gifts into the hands of your loved ones.

Initially, you may think that eyewear is an overly specific gift to give. How could you possibly pick out frames for someone else’s face? But when you really think about it, whether you’re gifting readers, blue light lenses, sunglasses, or maybe a gift card for future frames, unmistakably bold eyewear is the gift that says, “I absolutely adore you and your look! More please!” Not to mention, we are a no-regrets operation, and (almost) anything you purchase comes with a 90-day return policy. So don’t overthink it and go boldly into the holidays.

Without further ado, feast your eyes upon the eyewear gift guide that will have all of your favorite people dazzled with compliments this season.

Gifts For The Avid Reader

Gifts For The Avid Reader

Whether they spend their weekends buried in the paper, tinkering with teeny tiny model airplanes, or scouring the wine list, if your giftee is over 40, they will be delighted to add some stupendously high-quality frames to their collection of readers (that they did not procure at a drug store on a whim).

- If your person is the type to quote Einstein or if their favorite place to vacation is the Library of Congress, we suggest frames that give off a more professorial look like the Vice Chair or What Inheritance?

- Do they dress like a smarty pants but love to bring the party? Then the colorful details on the Half-Pint and Old Money reading glasses can check both boxes.

- Are they the type that would rather not advertise that they need readers? The larger square Kvetcher frames could easily pass as prescription or blue light glasses, thus fooling anyone.

Gifts For The (Blue) Light Of Your Life.

Gifts For The (Blue) Light Of Your Life.

You don’t need to be a tech nerd or grad student to find yourself aglow with multiple screens at all hours of the day. Give your screen-obsessed loved ones a fashionable break from blue light with blue light-blocking lenses housed in gloriously bold frames.

- If they truly are bouncing from screen to screen, a larger frame, or even something slightly oversized, that covers a lot of ground might be the ticket. Of course, everyone’s face size is different but Breaking News or Dichotomy are great places to start.

- Maybe they are trying to give off that older, wiser, and “I totally know what I’m doing in the Zoom meeting” kind of vibe. If sophistication is the goal, check out Anomaly or Chutzpah’d.

Gifts For The Sun One

Gifts For The Sun One

Yes, we’re talking about the person that’s always out and about, seeking a little fun in the sun. For them, we recommend a stunning pair of sunglasses. Did you know sunglasses are one of the most common items to show up in lost and found bins? Do not fact check … but speaking from experience, we wholeheartedly believe that in order to keep track of your sunnies you need a pair that you absolutely adore. Please note that nearly any of our frames can be made into sunglasses (oh la la!).

- Bring out their wild side with perfectly eccentric sunnies like Hits the Spot, Fussbudget, or Abundant.

- Do not overlook the genius of a sunglasses clip on. If you’re looking to become someone’s favorite in-law, get them a pair of spiffy best-selling specs AND the sunglasses clip ons to match. Check out Waylaid, Biff, and Case Closed.
