Last-Minute Gift Guide

Fashion

Don’t be fooled: Giving clothes as a present isn’t lame. (As long as we’re not talking white tube socks.) Just be smart about fit or ask for a gift receipt if you aren’t sure, and be sincere. Giving something that made you think of the recipient is guaranteed to be well-received. And you really can’t go wrong with shoes. Promise.


Strive

8000 Paseo del Norte #C-14 • 821-4999

Hours: Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Sunday from noon to 5 p.m.

Nestled in the Northeast Heights, Strive boasts the largest wall of TOMS shoes in Burque. OK, that’s an unsubstantiated claim, but it certainly can’t be far from the truth. Giving TOMS for the holidays is like pulling double duty with your money, as every pair sold means a pair donated to a kid in need. Strive also features racks of Prana clothes (yoga and casual) and designer jackets that won’t break the bank.


Curiosity’s Canvas

1734 Central NW • 804-5843

Hours: Monday and Tuesday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Thursday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Sunday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
curiosityscanvas.com

This cute store just opened behind Garcia’s on Central and features handmade clothing, art and accessories. In keeping with steampunk and pinup fashions, Curiosity’s Canvas features mini top hats and clockwork art, punky skirts made from a hodge-podge of colorful fabric and dozens of unique handbags and totes.

Dan's Boots & Saddles

6903 Fourth Street NW • 505-345-2220

Hours: Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
dansboots.com

A good pair of boots is always in fashion, and Dan’s got quite the selection. Wrangle a shoe size from your gift target, then wrassle up a pair of Western boots even a city slicker will love. Seriously, boots are cool.


The Mother Lode of Women’s Recycled Fashions

6605 Lomas NE • 268-5222

Hours: Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

The name says it all. This is the spot you want to hit if you’re looking for that special something for your off-the-wall friend. A purple, feather-adorned jacket would certainly make a statement, as would a bicycle-embroidered belt. Or snap up a scarf that doesn’t shout quite as loud but will still make a fashionista’s holiday bright.
