The Executive

From exceptional office accessories to effortlessly chic workwear, it’s only the best for the beloved boss lady.

By Rachel Waldman

What to gift the go-getting, career-driven woman who seemingly has it all figured out? Surely, she’d love to receive reimagined classics like The Row’s beautiful button-down blouse, Paris Georgia’s tried-and-true trench or a pair boss booties from Stella Luna that work as hard as she does. And while a Hillary Clinton-inspired pantsuit is great, a bottle of Rodham Rye (affectionately named after HRC) will really get her through the day.

And because she spends so much time at her desk, something pretty–like say a Choosing Keeping’s Dandelion Paperweight–to make it a more pleasant place is a good idea. The only thing fresher? A bouquet delivered from our personal favorite, Flower Girl. Pop them in an Emma Olvers for Skultuna vase and she’s in business. Alternatively, go a cut above the ordinary office accoutrements with HAY’s sleek and chic scissors or Fferone’s drinking vessel; sure to elevate any deskscape.

Here, all of the offerings that are sure to impress any executive.
