The most surpr-EYE-sing gifts of the season
What do you get for the person who has everything? The style maven or monsieur who knows what she wants and goes out and gets it (leaving you without a thing to treat her with)? Or that special someone who deserves a gift as unexpected and unique as they are?
We don’t want you to have do your best Sherlock Holmes impersonation to figure out the perfect present for your most fashion-forward eyewear aficionado.
After all, rounding up the very best in optical style is our expertise! So we’ve rounded up our favourite gift ideas for the season that will be sure to bedazzle your bespectacled beloved.
Eyewear Display & Storage Boxes by OYOBOX
Eyewear is art that uses the face as it’s canvas, but what about when you’re not wearing them?
If your darling has been following our advice, and has been busily building her eyewear wardrobe, then she’ll certainly need somewhere to display her frames while maintaining their perfect condition.
OYOBOX is our favourite way to make a home for designer eyewear.
Created by a brother/sister team of eyewear lovers, they’ve created a gorgeous collection of boxes to store your collection, with a specially engineered interior partition that accommodates up to 8 pairs of eyeglasses from everyday readers to oversized sunnies.
Available 25 colours, $375
Any Di Sunglass Holders
You know your favourite glasses wearer always has at least two pairs with them at all times - and nothing’s worse than bulky glasses cases taking up so much space in their handbag that they’re resigned to all totes, all the time!
Indoor eyeballs, outdoor eyeballs, maybe an extra pair of readers...who said the Louis Neverfull was never full?
We flipped out when we first laid eyes on Any Di suncovers. All the way from Zurich, Any Di designed these specs protectors with both form and function in mind: any size of glasses fits safely inside the snap-close pocket which can then be fastened around the loop of a handbag or even hung from a belt or belt loop! We definitely want one for our next beach vacation and travel destination.
Wallets and key fobs are so overdone. Any Di suncovers are the chicest small leather gift you’ve never thought to give - and that they’ll be the first to own!
Available in 6 colours, starting at $125
Customizing one’s eyewear need not end at frames and lenses. Go one step further for your loved one by gifting them an accessory that turns “common sense” into “cool.”
Leathers sourced from Northern Italy, woods from the Philippines, opals from Brazil, pearls and shells from New Zealand, and turquoise from New Mexico, La Loop, the first necklaces for glasses, are truly global art pieces.
The authenticity and craftsmanship of La Loop’s gorgeous pieces never cease to impress upon one’s dress!
Because no-one needs to be ‘that person’ with the eyeglass bungee cord around their necks, and yet everyone feels like they’re losing their mind when they can’t find their glasses!
Think of these as a two in one gift: an head-turning, artist-piece necklace combined with a practical, sanity-saving glasses loop.
That’s what we call an elegant gift giving solution!
Available in a variety of styles, $35 - $375
If expanding someone’s eyewear collection is your goal, we have lots of ideas for their next addition. While optical frames are usually complex to order, a fantastic pair of designer sunnies is nearly always the perfect present!
For pairs that are sure to get a hug around the neck, you can’t go astray with one hottest pairs of the year:
Aviators by Victoria Beckham, the queen of cool sunglasses, are a must-have in any eyewear collection. They will quickly become the only pair of aviators they’ll ever need.

For a bold play on classic elements, Fendi sunglasses never cease to charm. We love these unexpected half-frames with their sultry smokey lenses and pearl details. This is a frame your Fashionista will have in her collection forever.
Fendi Ribbons & Pearls, regularly $625 now on sale $437.50
Petite faces can be challenging to fit, but Masunaga solves that problem with sunglasses that are stylish, snug, and created especially for a petite face.
