Gift Guide: Corporate Gifting

It's time to get serious about holiday gifting. Thanking your business partners is one of the most complicated giftings of the season. Your presents need to represent the ethos of your company and appropriately show gratitude to those who support you throughout the year.

It's also important not to go overboard, you don't want your gift to seem like a bribe. On the flip side, you don't want to send a gift a fruit basket to someone who entrusts you with a mega-size portfolio or trusted you to list their $30-million brownstone.

Below are a few ideas to thank your customers and business partners. As for employees, everyone appreciates cash.

The Best of Cyber Week

Chances are that you've been shopping or browsing online all weekend. Nonetheless, marketers still insist that the shopping continues full force through Cyber Monday. This season, most shopping will be done online. 

Many of the discounts pick up where we left on Thanksgiving. You can click over to our Thanksgiving week cheat sheet. Below are the retailers we plan to stalk for Cyber Monday. Just be careful, the impulse to buy anything can easily overcome Monday morning shoppers.

If you need Gucci shoes fast you should be stalking DSW  The site continually adds new styles to the assortment. Prices run 30% to 50% off retail. Here are Gucci Zumi kitten heels for $500 from $980, Marmont sandals are $500 from $690, and Ace sneakers are $450 from $650.  Princetown velvet slides are $650 from $790 or a version with embroidered cats is $550 from $890. There are also some kid's Gucci shoes too. 

Black Friday continues with a private Balenciaga sale where you can save 30% off with the code PS30. The women's selection is here and men can click here. This herringbone handbag is $840 from $1200, this quilted leather bag is $805 from $1150, and mirrored slides are $420 from $600.

You can save 20% off sitewide with most purchases over $250 with the code BLACKFRIDAY20 or 25% off when you spend over $500 with the code BLACKFRIDAY25. The big designers are excluded but there is still a lot from which to choose. Alexander McQueen sneakers are $400 from $540, Chloe boots are $427 from $570 and this Valentino Rockstud micro bag is $1100 from $1476. 

For Cyber Monday, Mr. Porter is offering up to 50% off. An Off-White hoodie is $225 from $550, a cashmere sweater from The Row is $1000 from $1500 and Nike Airforce 1 sneakers are $84 from $120. This Cyber Monday sale seems like an early first markdown. We would suggest taking a scroll and getting a jump on men's sales. 

It takes a real insider to understand all of the promotions that are available for Cyber Monday at Saks. For starters, you can receive $50 off every $200 you spend on qualifying purchases with the code CYBER20SF and clearance items are an additional 20% off.  There is also 15% off beauty with the code CBTY20SF. Last, but not least, you can save 20% off Canada Goose with the code CG20OFF

Tap over to Nordstrom to save an additional 25% off clearance items. This Isabel Marant sweater $100 from $400, RtA leather leggings are $500 from $1100 and this Victoria Beckham coat is $1500 from $2500. There are also plenty of beauty deals. This La Mer set is $255 from $500, this T3 curling iron is $130 from $160 and Tom Ford Illuminator is $35 from $70.

Holiday Edition: Obsessions & Impulses

When I first started MadSpy the idea was to direct shoppers to find the best deals. It was assumed that fashion girls already had a great sense of what they wanted and sometimes just needed to be pointed in the right direction. 

As online shopping has exploded it seems that even the most accomplished shoppers are confused by the volume of options. Years ago, the bulk of my time would be spent toiling over the right words. These days, it can take hours sorting and filtering the best sale items to compile a post. I can't imagine how it feels to be a novice shopper.

This week, I'm lending a helping hand. Head to Instagram stories and tell me what you need to buy and I'll do my best to point you to the right item or at least the right direction. The more details you include the more accurate I can be. 

There are a lot of sites to browse for those diving into holiday sales. We hashed out the best Black Friday sales over in this previous post. An honorable mention should be made to the sale sections at Saks Fifth Avenue and Bergdorf Goodman. Enter at your own risk, it might cost you a few Benjamins before clicking away from either. 

If you're still not satisfied, we have a pretty complete list of all the best promotions this way. Special attention should be paid to MyTheresa and Ssense. Both are offering great discounts on current season designer merchandise. 

Speaking of current season markdowns, we are still waiting for local department stores to take a good markdown. Thursday will be a big day for designer shoppers. Keep your eyes on Neiman Marcus. We have our bets on Saks for the best deals on Cyber Monday. 

Taking a downshift from super-expensive designer merchandise,  Shopbop is offering 20% off purchases of $200 or more with the code SHOP20. This Jacquemous bag is $400 from $500, this JW Anderson chain bag is $425 from $895, and a Saks Potts puffer is $700 from $880.

You might also want to consider digging into the Yoox Black Friday sale where discounts top at 90% off. Here is a Prada skirt for $382 from $850 and Prada slides are $228 from $570.  There is so much merchandise that I suggest you just do searches based on your favorite designer and cross filter by size. 

That's it for me today. Remember to head to  Instagram stories for some Saturday night fun. 

Stay tuned. Until next time... same time, same place?

Where to Shop on Black Friday (Now)

Waking up on Thanksgiving Day, it's hard to choose between cooking, eating, and shopping. You can guess where we started. This holiday season is like none prior. There will be fewer people crowding stores and lots more shoppers logging online. Take note, the increased online shopping will mean a bottleneck in shipping. This season we suggest ordering earlier than you even anticipate to be necessary. 

Lucky for you,  we have all the inside scoop and can lend you a little preview of the markdowns to come. European online luxury retailers seem to take Black Friday even more seriously than American retailers. Head to our post from earlier this week to see the best deals from Italy. We must admit, we are getting very well acquainted with DHL. Marketplaces like Farfetch and Italist are offering extending markdowns and extra savings. Ssense is also in it to win it--the customer, of course.  

Below are our top picks for Black Friday and a sneak peek into Cyber Monday. Remember, to add all your purchase considerations into your cart and edit out the items that you don't need now or that you don't anticipate selling out. There are lots of markdowns to come and one of the miracles of fashion is that there is always something new to buy.

Happy Thanksgiving!!

You might need to dig for a bit but your efforts will be rewarded when you find the right gem. Right now, you can save up to an additional 30% off already reduced merchandise. The savings is near 80% off on some items. There are dozens of styles of Manolo Blahnik shoes reduced to about $200 but there aren't many size options available. You can easily find something from Stuart Weitzman for even half of that. While everyone is waiting for a sample sale from The Row we can assure you that the prices here are even better. The additional discounts will be available through Dec.1. The real designer sale will hit on Dec. 3.

Sometimes you have to go straight to the mother ship to find the best selection and price. In the Private Sale section found in this link, you can save between 30% and 50% off past season Balenciaga merchandise. Triple S sneakers are available in a full-size range and are $680 from $975 and Speed Trainers are $549 from $800. A logo all over sweater is $830 from $1190, a backpack is $729 from $1050, and a graffiti City Bag is $1250 from $2100. 

There is A LOT going on at Saks. So much so that it's starting to feel like JC Penny. You can save 15% off lots of beauty brands including Diptyque, La Mer, Armani Beauty, and Jo Malone. Next, head over to the big deep discounts on past season merchandise. Reductions peek at 75% off. There are great finds like this Saint Laurent blazer that's $861 from $3500 plus a $75 gift card with the code BCGC20SF. It would already be mine but it's a size too big. This Off-White canvas tote is $200 from $330 and this Jitney bag is $850 from $1450. This Balmain jacket dress is $1377 from $2300 and this Mark Cross box bag is $1500 from $2300. 

In a normal year, Lululemon wouldn't chart on our must-shop list but the combination of covid curves and staying home more makes athleisure a must-have. Black Friday prices are about 30% to 40% off of retail, which isn't earth-shattering but it's a welcome saving. A pullover is $59 from $88 and cropped leggings are $59 from $88. Just a little word of warning, we would rather forsake a discount than purchase a color a style that's not flattering. 

Just when you think it's all over, DSW adds more styles to its Gucci sale. The prices are pretty good. You'll find Sylvie loafers are $500 from $890 and Sylvie pumps are $500 from $700. Kids Gucci slides make a great gift for just $150. Remember, keep checking back.

Saks: The Ultimate Holiday Shopping Destination

Sponsored by Saks Fifth Avenue & ShopStyle

More than ever it feels appropriate to celebrate the people we love most and indulge them with the spoils of luxury. Saks Fifth Avenue has everything you can possibly need to celebrate the holidays in style. Right now, during the Spend Get promotion you can save up to $275 off your full-price purchase using code NOVSPGTSF. The promotion is only online and is valid through 11/20.

We easily found the perfect gift for everyone on our list. There is not a fashionable person who wouldn't be thrilled with a pair of Manolo Blahnik Hangisi heels. It's like jewelry for the feet, or should we call them shoe-lery? 

We know a few things about teenage girls. One thing is that they are super focused on trends and style and usually have a penchant for items outside of their non-existent income levels. This Yuzefi bag is perfect as it combines two of this season's hottest trends -- a heavy chain and a pouch silhouette-- for a price that isn't too overindulgent. 

We can't understand how men always need a new winter jacket. How do they always have none? My top suggestion is always a puffer from Moose Knuckles. They are durable, stylish, and functionally warm. It's like hitting the trifecta and with the added bonus of a reasonable price. 

Looking for more perfect gift ideas? Check out some of my favorites from  Saks Fifth Avenue below.

For now, you can use this extra time to leisurely explore what will be included in the markdown. Prices are discounted up to 40% off. Most of the premium designer collections aren't included in this sale but that doesn't mean you will be hard-pressed to click away empty-handed.

The site has lots of sale holders from last winter that shouldn't be missed. A Moncler puffer is $700 from over $2000 and Valentino high boots are $665 from $1650.

Looking forward to this week, you should keep an eye on Ssense. The site is about to do a massive markdown.  Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman will also begin their big designer sales. Saks Fifth Avenue isn't starting designer markdowns just yet but there will be another big flash sale on merchandise that's already reduced. We suggest you begin adding to cart because you know how it gets when these sales break.

Stay tuned. Until next time... same time, same place?
