Mad for Mod

Not only is ModCloth one of my personal favourite shopping destinations, it also happens to be a pretty nifty place to go gift shopping as well. Case in point? While picking up a couple of items for myself the other day, I took a quick spin through their gift guide and immediately found a few awesome ideas for some folks on my list. Today, I’m pleased to do the same for you, by picking out some of my fave ideas from their rather expansive collection, and suggesting what they might be perfect for.

As a bonus, if you’ve yet to create a ModCloth account, you can score $15 off your first purchase of $50 or more when you follow this link to set up your account. Plus for a limited time, they’re offering free international shipping on orders of over $150! Plus plus plus, their Beyond Black Friday sale is kicking off today with hundreds of new items available at 50% off. Psyched? And with that…

Who says men can’t dig candles? This pool-inspired set of tea light holders is a funky accoutrement to any guy’s games’ room / office / man cave, etc. Make sure to pair it with a pack of not-too-feminine candles!

Cute As A Shutterbug TeeFor The Sartorialist Sir: Cute As A Shutterbug Tee – $27.99

Watt Dreams May ComeFor The Little Ones’ Guiding Light: Watt Dreams May Come Night Light $24.99
I love this funky night light because it reminds me of my childhood when these electromagnetic lights were all the rage. Touch it and and watch the light link up with your fingertips, plus, use it to guide your way for a midnight bathroom break.

Razzle Dazzle EarringsFor Her Greatest Gatsby Dreams: Razzle Dazzling Earrings – $16.99
ModCloth’s whole thing is vintage-inspired (but never dated) clothing & accessories – with a healthy helping of quirky geek chic. They’ve got quite the collection of 20s pieces at the moment, including a fun range of costume jewelry like these hanging gems.

If you’re looking for a new way to display photos of your best friends, precious pet, or memorable event, this uniquely-shaped frame pulls double duty as a piece of art and a creative photo collage creator. Also available in black.

When in doubt, go with a cardigan. This wardrobe (and ModCloth) staple comes in over two dozen colours and patterns, and layers wonderfully with your favourite winter party dress or office outfit. Stock up & watch her smile.
