Valentine’s Day Gifts


Valentine's Day Gifts (for your sweetie, for you) are the absolute best for one major reason: pink and red simply belong together. The romantic holiday is unabashedly one of favorites here at Noir Friday. Some may say it's too saccharine, too contrived, too depressing. We say it's an excuse to buy yourself a heart-print sweatshirt [...]

Gifts for You


You took care of everyone on your gift list—now it's time to gift yourself and grab those items you really want. January is one of the of the best shopping months, with everything on final sale.

Accessories to Keep Warm


I bought a couple of these Eugenia Kim Rain hats on sale last spring. I knew I would be happy to have them come winter—and I am! They are so warm and cozy. I have linked to a bunch that are on sale right now, plus a few that are not yet reduced but should [...]

Gifts for the Jetsetter


These gifts promise to go the distance for the stylish jetsetter. Packable Hunter boots. Brilliant. A pair of comfortable slip-on sneakers representing their favorite city. Who wouldn't want those? I know I do. A chain wallet is the way to go to keep your money by your side and I'm all about tiny wallets these days so [...]

Gifts for Kids


Figuring out gifts for the kids for Christmas is always a tough one. There's stuff to get from their own, very specific list for Santa. My own daughter's list for Santa includes a bell for her bicycle and an electric bass. An electric bass?? She's five. Does she play the bass? Since when? Does she [...]
