Stressed about what to get that hard-to-buy-for person? Christmas gifts for eyes couldn’t be easier!
Whether it’s your Kris Kringle, boss’s wife, babysitter, daughter’s boyfriend, kid’s teacher or fussy family member, The Eye Practice has updated our Christmas gift list for 2020 and we are all stocked up with a range of beautiful eye wear and eye care gift suggestions – whatever your budget!
Christmas gifts for your eyes: The boyfriend
Not many get to drive a Porsche but that doesn’t mean you can’t rock the Porsche look. The Eye Practice stocks the latest Porsche range in fashion frames and sunglasses. The 2020 collection includes a modern retake on the classic aviator style created in the 70s and made famous by style icons ever since. (from $635)
The Kris Kringle
Protect your glasses or sunglasses with one of these soft velour spectacle cases from World Collection ($30), which feature artwork from all your favourite artists, from Klimt to Monet. (Also great for Aunties). For a similar look, with added protection, the Plumeria range of hard cases ($36) will always be easy to find in your handbag.
The boss’s wife
Apsley & Company 400g luxury candle. We are in LOVE with these scented soy candles. The only problem is choosing which design and scent. ($49)
If you’re after a glasses case that holds more than one pair, the stylish yet practical ‘Double Take’ spectacle case from Sorella ($42.50) doubles as a clutch and can hold two pairs of glasses (or you can pop your essentials in one side and travel light).
The Eye Practice also carries a stylish hard case that holds three pairs of glasses/sunglasses safely for travel or storage.
And, if your boss’s wife is worthy of a bigger gift, we just love this stunning range of eye-wear storage boxes from OYOBox. Beautifully crafted in polished timbers and resins, we can’t think of a more luxurious way to store your glasses. The OYOBox mini ($155) stores up to 4 pairs and the OYOBox maxi ($295) stores up to eight pairs. Looks fabulous on a hall console or tall boy. Never misplace your glasses again!
The babysitter / niece
Know someone who doesn’t wear makeup due to sensitive eyes or skin? Blinc makes a range of mascaras and eyeliners for even the most sensitive eyes. One of the key features of this range is that it washes off with plain water – no need for cleaners. A gentle rub in the shower and it’s gone.
ASPECT is another exciting brand for sensitive types. They make a skincare range suitable for the most discerning wearer. Only available from dermatologists or dry eye clinics, this range is pure heaven for dry eye sufferers and anyone with a delicate skin type. The Eye Practice stocks the full range of these products.
Kanda slimfold glasses have become a classic brand highly sought after by those after discrete style. Suitable for prescription lenses, their unique design means they fold away into a slimline gold case which doesn’t buckle or bulge in your suit pocket. ($395)
The sensitive one
If you know someone who suffers with dry eye syndrome, then we’ve sourced the perfect gift. The Tranquileyes Onyx sleep shield ($99) protects your eyes from dryness as you sleep.
It also comes in a clear (crystal) version ($99) for use during waking activities where the eyes are prone to drying, such as long-haul flights. These are one of our most popular dry-eye products.
The fashionista (girlfriend / wife / daughter / fiancee)
For the latest eye wear, it’s hard to go past our stunning new collection from coveted high-fashion label, Zeus and Dione. These optical and sunglasses frames stand out from the crowd with their thoroughly modern take on traditional Greek symbolism.
You might also like to gift a pair of reading glasses that are slim enough to fit on the back of your phone – perfect for a tiny clutch. The Thin Optics range has the thinnest glasses you’re likely to find. ($35-$79)
Yourself… (why not?)
Our team at The Eye Practice recently returned from their annual tour of the optical trade fairs in USA (Vision Expo) and Europe (SILMO) with a line of the luxury Italian eye wear brand Sospiri.
These iconic styles with their stunning embellishments inspired by Venetian architecture and fine art are the epitome of luxury and style. We can hardly keep them on the shelves! (The Eye Practice is the only Sydney CBD stockist of this line).
