Chic Ruana and Other Cozy Holiday Gifts!

Having trouble coming up with an idea for the Perfect Holiday Gift for your mom, daughter, sister, girlfriend, or any other galpal in your life? I’m partnering with Nordstrom to bring you a fantastic find that is chic, cozy, and a great deal too. Take a look!

How to wear a ruana

I love Christmas, but I hate racking my brain trying to come up with something unique, pretty, and kind of heartfelt to give as a gift. So when I came across this beautiful knit Ruana, I felt like I hit the jackpot. Nordstrom has a lot of cozy, cute gifts this year, and I’ll show you some of those later, but first, let me tell you about this.

This is a ribbed knit Ruana – otherwise known as a poncho wrap. You can wear it like a sweater or a cape with just about anything. I’ve paired it with this silky cross-front blouse from the Nordstrom house brand Halogen, and a pair of trendy split hem knit pants for a fresh modern look. It would also look great with a lovely sheath dress open or belted on top!

The thing I love about a Runa is you can use this year-round. It’s perfect in the fall and during those transitional times, but I’ll also bring it with me in the summer if I go somewhere like a restaurant where I know they like to blast the air conditioning. A Ruana is an accessory, but it can work like a jacket or long cardigan to transform a plain outfit into something quite casually chic.

Everyone can wear a ruana, from your teenage daughter out on the town with her BFFs to your 90-year-old mom in her living cozied up in her lazy boy watching tv. It’s snuggly and stylish. And besides this stunning blue color, it also comes in a beautiful dark gray heather, faded coral, and tan safari shade.

I like the relaxed, upscale feel and the way it can look chic if you dress it up with booties or mules and a fab gold chain crossbody bag.

Do you see the beautiful ribbing? That fabulous texture is what makes it modern compared to a plain knit wrap. And a nice thing as well is, this is made from stretchy recycled fibers. Eco-friendly makes me feel extra good about giving this gift too!

I always need something like this when I travel. This would be perfect for a cruise just in case it got chilly. I’d also take this on a plane or car trip. You can roll it up in a ball, throw it in your tote and go!

And I thought the price was quite good for such a quality gift at $59.
