This Affordable Holiday Gift Will Dazzle Her

I love giving gifts, and I excel at it. I invest considerable attention, time, and energy in selecting just the right gifts for my people. And the dopamine hit I get when the recipient gushes genuinely about a gift I’ve given them continues the virtuous cycle of giving. So, what about This Affordable Holiday Gift Will Dazzle Her?

I know I may be an outlier. I realize that selecting and purchasing gifts can be a chore for some (and that’s being euphemistic). So, I thought I’d share with you a special gift idea that is sure to dazzle any woman on your gift list this holiday season.

Because of the strong positive response I received the first time I gave this gift, I purchased it again for someone else. In total, I have given this gift to three of my friends and my stepmother, and they’ve all loved it.

It’s an elegant Bali robe made using an ancient batik dyeing technique in which Indonesian artisans apply wax to the fabric, dip it in dye, and then remove the wax to reveal the brilliant designs. Accordingly, no two robes are identical! The color palette is rich greens, purples, and indigos, which looks terrific on any skin tone. It has pockets and an attached belt. It’s soft and perfect for lounging luxuriously at home or packing compactly to take with you when you travel.

Here are the product specs:


100% cotton




Length: 40″

Sleeve Length: 12″ (they end at the elbow so you don’t get into anything!)


Hand or machine wash cold, gentle cycle, hang to dry.


The belt is attached (so you can’t lose it!).


$78 (before tax and shipping)
