Now that the holidays are officially upon us, we here at Shoppist are in full gifting mode. Each day this month, we’ll unveil our 25 top gifts to buy in Philly this season. (Trust us: We’ve shopped everywhere to bring you the best of the best.)
Confession: I recently spent an entire afternoon with my little cousins playing with their Rainbow Loom, weaving impossibly tiny rubber bands into bracelets. The Rainbow Loom trend isn’t dying off yet, but even a 10-year-old needs some variety in her bracelet stack. Enter Serefina’s adorable brass bracelet, adorned with a festive pom-pom. These baubles are cute enough for the littlest fashionista (and wallet-friendly, too), but also cool enough for adults to wear (I’d stack it with my gold bangles). Which brings me to confession #2: I also desperately want this. If only to wear with my Rainbow Loom bracelets. (Hey, I spent hours making them!)
The Details: Serefina single pom-pom bracelet, $40 at Aoki Boutique, Rittenhouse.
Give To: Your niece/cousin who is obsessed with Rainbow Looms.
