According to behavioral researchers, the best gift you can give someone is a gift card, but let’s face it, not many people dream of eagerly tearing the wrapping paper from an envelope, however fabulous it may be!
That said, we know that shopping for others can sometimes be really difficult, so our Vizio Optic Elves decided to put together a small list of our favorite gift-able frames! There are recommendations that work for men, women, and we’ve even included treats that fit perfectly in anyone’s stocking.

Oliver Goldsmith was behind many of Audrey Hepburn’s famous shaded looks in the fifties and sixties and they have been selling ever since! Perhaps the most iconic and recognizable pair are these shades from Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Every girl wants to wear them paired with a little black dress and pearls!
Our love affair with these frames began when we first saw Sarah Jessica Parker wear her gold Franz shades and it continued as they kept releasing them in a multitude of colors. These stand-out designer sunglasses are perfect for the fashion-forward woman in your life and are only available during this limited edition run.
If your gift recipient is the type of person who misplaces things, you may also want to give them an eyeglass necklace from La Loop.

Your giftee will be amazed at how great it feels to wear a brand new pair of lenses! Help them keep their new gift in pristine condition and fight fingerprints, dust, grease and other dirt with these festive, high-quality microfiber cloths.
