Welcome to the Twelve Days of Christmas at Sassanova! Each day we’ll delight you with a piece of eye candy from the store as we lead up to Christmas. Updates daily! Check in December 20 for the final entry!
On the eleventh day of Christmas, Sassanova celebrates the season’s hope, love and dreams with A.V. Max’s sweet Wire World bracelets.
The thin gold-plated bracelets ($45 each) circle the wrist and share a sweet, uplifting message with words like “wish” and “believe.” Handcrafted in New York by Amy Vennema, a jewelry artist who draws inspiration from the city around her to create pieces that are both unique and wearable.
Her Wire World bracelets look great alone but are also excellent layering pieces. They’re a perfect gift for a teenage daughter, girlfriend or anyone who would enjoy wearing a positive message on her wrist!
For the tenth day of Christmas, go up, up and away with Julie Vos’s gorgeous shawl, emblazoned with colorful, whimsical hot air balloons.
The shawl ($165) is made of lightweight wool and measures 28 by 72 inches. Vos, a New York-based jewelry and accessories designer, is known for her intriguing use of color. The shawl, available in multiple color combinations, mixes bright shades with pastels for a look that’s fun and eye-catching. Its fabric is sturdy enough to work as outerwear but soft enough to wear all day.
Perfect for ladies who love to up their jeans-and-tee game with casual – but fabulous – accessories, the hot air balloon shawl will add a splash of joy to even the simplest of outfits.
On the ninth day of Christmas, stop by Sassanova to pick up something extra special for your true love: Hammitt’s chic, well-constructed LAX duffel bag.
This soft Italian leather bag, with 24-karat gold-plated hardware and a long shoulder strap, is a luxe alternative to the standard airplane carry-on. The suede-lined interior includes two pockets and a large center opening; an additional zippered pocket, out the outside, is a convenient spot to stash passports and tickets.
At $1,250, the LAX bag is a durable investment piece designed to last – and to get better-looking with age. It’s a perfect gift for the special man in your life (or as a treat for yourself). Give the gift of the Hammitt LAX duffel – then begin planning the adventures you’ll take with it.
On Sassanova’s eighth day of Christmas, give someone the gift of comfort – and style – with Kate Spade’s fabulous Camden slippers. Their satiny texture and fluffy pom-pom lend the slippers an air of retro Hollywood glamour, making even the laziest Sunday morning feel special.
The Camden slippers ($85) have a simple design, similar to ballet slippers, and a microsuede sole to prevent slipping . They are available in black or pink and in a variety of sizes. A wonderful gift for women of all ages, they are the perfect way to rest tired toes after a big night in heels, to keep warm in the early morning hours, or to make a quiet evening by the fire a little cozier – and more glamorous.
On this seventh day of Christmas at Sassanova, we’re falling for this gift that’s sweet and sentimental: the locket necklace by jewelry designer Sissy Yates.
Yates, a native Washingtonian, is the creative mind behind a discerning collection of earrings, necklaces and bracelets featuring exquisite semi-precious stones sourced from around the world. Her delicate brass locket ($95), which comes on a 30-inch gold-plated chain, is streamlined and smooth – the perfect place to keep special photos, pressed flowers, fabric or any other flat keepsake.
The locket is a thoughtful, charming gift for good friends and new mothers, who will melt over the tiny photos found inside.
For the sixth day of Christmas, skip the six geese a laying and, instead, give her the Roxbury crossbody bag from Sassanova. Made by Hammitt, the Roxbury ($525) is glamorous and edgy, with metal grommets and visible zippers, but also practical.
Suede-lined with two interior pockets, three separate exterior zippered compartments and a three-way adjustable cross-body strap, the purse is large enough to stash everything she needs. It works with a variety of looks and is an all-day bag that will take her from daytime fun to evening with an edge.
The Roxbury is perfect for the stylish, chic woman who appreciates a quality handbag with some personality of its own.
On the fifth day of Christmas, as we kick off the weekend, it’s time to dress up! Holiday season is party season and at Sassanova, there’s a dress for every wintry occasion, from the office holiday party to a swanky cocktail soiree.
Whether you’re a devotee of the classic LBD, a trendsetter in layers and lace or an inner prep who loves all thing pink, the Harbor East shop has you covered. Dresses start at $242 and are available in a variety of sizes.
Sassanova also has a great selection of shoes and accessories to help you add holiday shimmer from head to toe. With the right dress and styling, you’ll sparkle your way through the most glamorous of holiday weekends. Just add champagne!
On the fourth day of Christmas, warm up to Sassanova’s collection of chic cashmere ponchos and ruana wraps. Available in a variety of pretty colors, from neutral beige to eye-popping candy pink, these soft ponchos and wraps are a smart addition to any wardrobe. Snuggly and stylish, they are perfect for the long winter ahead.
The wraps, which range in price from $162 to $250, make great gifts for everyone from best friends to mothers-in-law. Or stop in just to pick one up for yourself (after all that shopping, you deserve it!). After all, what woman doesn’t love to feel cozy in cashmere?
On this chilly third day of Christmas, Sassanova wants to make sure all the ladies in your life are both snuggly and stylish when they turn in for the night. The adorable monkey lounge set from Roberta Roller Rabbit will definitely do the trick.
Incredibly soft and comfortable to wear, the 100% cotton pajamas ($95) are available in a blue or red dancing monkey print that’s funny, cute and, for energetic families, sure to start a few rounds of “no more monkeys jumping on the bed.” They are machine washable and available in sizes from extra small to large.
From grandmothers to daughters, loungewear-loving ladies of all ages will appreciate a gift of these jammies this Christmas!
At Sassanova, the second day of Christmas puts the “charm” in Charm City, with Samantha Faye’s engraved charm necklace.
This sweet, gold-plated charm has Baltimore’s latitude and longitude engraved on one side and “BAL” on the other. The charm is about an inch in diameter and comes on a 16 to 18-inch chain. Both tasteful and cool, it’s a great everyday piece of jewelry for Baltimore-loving ladies of every age. People magazine’s StyleWatch agrees – the editors there featured it as an Editor’s Pick in its holiday gift guide.
Ideal as a stocking stuffer or in a pretty little box under the tree, the City Collection Baltimore charm is perfect for any daughter, daughter-in-law or special friend who has a place in her heart for our quirky, lovable hometown.
On the first day of Christmas, Sassanova gave to me…a gift that’s as cute as it is functional: the PurseN Jewelry case. With a unique design inspired by origami, the case has multiple pockets and removable pouches, making it great for traveling, but also useful at-home as a jewelry box.
The cases, this one emblazoned with a stylish Greek key pattern, come in seven different patterns and in small and large sizes and range from $40 to $60. They’re perfect for the jewelry lovers on your list and make a great gift for Secret Santa exchanges, teachers, a 20-something niece, or your BFF. Give it on its own or use it to hold a gift card or jewelry.
