Tick Tock: Great Last Minute Gifts From Anne's on the Avenue

By Anne Waters

Any savvy modern woman will tell you that shopping is never quite finished. But holiday celebrations are officially underway. Christmas is just days away. Time's running out to buy for your favourite fashionistas. So make one more stop at my premier boutique, Anne's on the Avenue. I have some fabulous last minute gifts. Here are my suggestions:

Purses, Wallets, and Cell Phone Cases:
One purse is an absolute necessity. Two purses are even better. But it's absolutely fantastic to have a choice among three or more stylish bags. That's why every fashionista on your list will relish a new purse, wallet or cell phone case. At Anne's on the Avenue, new selections arrive almost weekly. We have everything from glamorous satin evening bags to smart patent leather handbags and clutches. The range of styles and colours is amazing.  

The perfect scarf is an essential outfit accessory.  We have so many sensational new styles and colours to choose from. You'll be tempted to pick out a few for yourself along with those lucky gals on your gift list. We have everything from sequined beauties for evening dazzle to traditional knit scarves to keep Jack Frost away. No matter what type of scarf you're looking for, you'll find it at Anne's on the Avenue.

Many ladies shy away from buying jewelry for gifts. But consider the fact that many women don't buy it for themselves. I think it makes a wonderful indulgent treat, especially if you know it will look great! Our new holiday selection of necklaces, bracelets, rings and earrings is spectacular. Go ahead and treat those ladies on your gift list to some fabulous jewelry. They deserve it.

Gift Certificates:
Is Anne's on the Avenue your favourite boutique for designer fashions and dazzling accessories? Share your secret with those fabulous ladies on your gift list. The perfect way to introduce them is to purchase gift certificates for them. They are available for $50 to $5,000. This is one gift certificate they will always appreciate.

Now you have a list of great last minute gifts.  We look forward to seeing you soon at Anne's on the Avenue. My expert stylists and I will help you choose gifts for every lady left on your list. (And a couple gifts for you, as well!) You can also purchase gift certificates online at:

Stylish & Cozy Weekend Wear

Busy fashionistas like to look good during their downtime, too. When the weekend rolls around, it's heavenly to have a few hours to relax. But just because it's time to unwind, doesn't mean you can't still look your best and stay super cozy, too.  At Anne's on the Avenue, I have the perfect weekend attire for you. And if you can't bear to leave your couch and come visit, these fabulous sweaters are all available online at, too!

This super sweater has so much going for it.  It is not only stylish and cozy but fun and playful, as well. You can choose either charcoal grey with pink polka dots or royal blue with black polka dots. On the couch you'll appreciate this sweater's luxurious softness. Outside, you'll appreciate its playful appeal. Either way, it is sure to become one of your weekend favourites. 

This attractive sweater is available in teal and black or orange and black. I love the oversize flap collar and the pin detail closure on front.  It is the perfect choice for a hassle-free casual and cozy weekend. It's perfect for curling up on the couch. But it's also heavy enough for a walk in the snow-covered park. 

I love the heft of this sweater. It is sure to keep you warm and cozy on the coldest of days. The oversize cowl neck makes a statement worthy of the most discriminating fashionista. I also love the blocked knit stitching on the front and sleeves. It is available in red, blue or burgundy. This is another great sweater for casual weekend days. You might just find you need it in more than one colour. 

I love this fuzzy sweater-shirt. I call it that because it has a wonderful pocket detail, like your favorite T-shirt. The bright royal blue stripes compliment the more subtle hues of blue, black and grey perfectly. This is a downtime sweater you'll reach for over and over during those cherished weekend mornings.
