Stuff Her Stocking: Hermès Knotting Cards
The blokes can have their Texas Hold 'Em . . . my kind of playing cards come in a bright orange box, and number 21 to a deck. On one side is a pic of a model wearing an Hermès scarf in an interesting way. On the other are step-by-step instructions on how to knot it. 21 ways to tie a scarf? Blackjack!
You can keep the deck handy in a drawer . . . play pick a card, any card, if you want to wear a scarf but are stuck on inspiration . . . go bold with examples of wear a square as a halter, or a bikini top (which you don't need to do over bare skin: atop a fine knit top could look great as well).
The wonderful resource Bagsnob has scanned some examples, which are here. The cards themselves are easily found on eBay and other luxury resellers.
I've just bought vintage sets from 2007 and 2008. Santa, darling, you're off the hook.
