It's that time again- Marie Monsod shares her fave six picks for gifts that will definitely not be re-gifted. You might even want to snag a few for yourself! From Affordable to Chanel, we have something for everyone, A through Z. Whether sweet, sassy, edgy, or unpredictable, we've got you covered. Or...ACCESSORIZED!


Recess Dresscode No-Regifting Guide 2019 #1-Perfect Pins: bow, choker, lipstick, bar, safety pin

Pin one on. Not sure what to get? Pins are the perfect little token for gifting and come in a range of styles to fit any personality and budget. From a classic jeweled bar to a cheeky lipstick, these little ornaments are an easy way to add a little fun to a basic wardrobe staple- Or, go all out and splurge on a chained version linked to a choker bodychain that lets her know you're inspired by a bit of bondage.
Shop brooches, pins, and barrettes.



Recess Dresscode No-Regifting Guide 2019 #2-Long & Layered: gold and bead necklaces laid out

Wrap it up. Long layering necklaces are the perfect gift- one can never have too many, so you're golden. Each one adds depth and texture to any look, and even better when you can pile them on. We love a long rope chain that can be wrapped around the neck multiple times. Need something more substantial? We have that, too.

Recess Dresscode No-Regifting Guide 2019 #3-Statement Scarves: 3 scarves in rosettes

Tie one on. A well-tied scarf is an easy substitute for hardware and jewelry looks with an added dose of color. Folds up small and travels well- and there's a print to match any passion or personality. It's an easy way to inject a bit of Yves Saint Laurent, Hermés, or Celine into any look. Tie one around the neck, wear as a headwrap, knot around the wrist, or add a dash of color to a handbag- scarves are the magic shapeshifters of the accessory world. We'd even frame an especially gorgeous print; after all, they are works of illustrative art. 
Shop scarves.


Recess Dresscode No-Regifting Guide 2019 #4-Earring Envy: Gold earrings scattered

Pick a pair, any pair. The signature of a Recess girl is her fabulous collection of earrings. Distinctive and statement-making, you pretty much can't go wrong with any of our earrings. From long drops to bold buttons, you can be sure your gift will be unique!

Recess Dresscode No-Regifting Guide 2019 #5-Covetable Coco: three gold chanel pendants

In Love with the Coco. What to get for the person who has everything? You can never go wrong with Chanel- and you can never own too much Chanel. Even better? Long layering necklaces (see above) by Chanel. She already has one? No problem- two are better than one! She doesn't have one yet? Then perfect!
Shop Chanel necklaces.


Recess Dresscode No-Regifting Guide 2019 #6-Gram Worthy: Gucci & cartier gift box sets

For the person who has everything- all the things they never knew they wanted, and now can't live without. A Gucci tennis racket cover will turn heads off the court and can be used to stylishly stash items in the rectangular pouch. A Cartier card wallet set with gold pens will turn a shopping purchase into a deliberate action. A beautiful Gucci bracelet watch set with a rainbow of bezels will always be a perfect match for any look. Above all, each of these pieces will be great on the gram (we know it's a thing!), so bonus points!
