What a Girl Needs

Sometimes the line between what a girl wants and what a girl needs gets blurred!  Do we need that purse or do we just want that purse? Women are picky too and that makes holiday shopping for your girlfriend, wife, mother, daughter, sister or friend difficult to say the least.  So, we took a survey, scoured the web and local shops to bring you a list of  sure fire gifts for girls on your list.

Radiant Red SweatersA Radiant Red Sweater

Ladies of all ages and sizes would be thrilled to find one of these high-style sweaters from Morgan’s of Delaware, under the tree.  Red easily stimulates one’s energy, promoting liveliness, which is exactly what she’ll need when mingling with and entertaining friends and family over the Holiday. Not to mention, nothing looks better than a lady in radiant red!  She can keep warm and cozy all while looking fabulous!

Each sweater features unique details and embellishments we fancy: We love the detachable Mongolian Lamb Collar, on sweater #1, it’s like getting two sweaters instead of one! The fun color-block detail with sassy studs on the shoulders on Sweater #2 makes for a very chic look, plus it comes with a color-block tank top for underneath, so you can wear it open or closed. Sweater #3 is loaded with sexy zippers! Enough said?  Zip it high or zip it low either way this one will cause a stir.
