Here Are Some Gift Suggestions Concerning A

Perfume A Weleo
But Choose
Perfume may not be an unusual or
an inspired gift selection, but it is
certain to be a popular one. We have
yet to meet the woman who is not
delighted with a gift of perfume no

should be taken in selecting perfume,;

Brown, Black Best Types
For Street Wear; Color
Leads For Evening
Even though Dame Fashion has
taken a sudden fancy for variety in
multi-color ensembles it is still fash-
ionable to keep handbags in the more
conservative colors.
Handbags are excellent gift choices
.ind every girl is thrilled to receive
a bag of good taste. Black or brown
choices are always good and very
practical as well as smart. Colored
bags are not "tabooed" but it is wise
to let the individual choose these ac-
cording to her own personal tastes !
and costumes.
One very popular and attractive
bag is the simple envelope type of
rich brown leather fastened with a

and compacts, be sure you get the
ight shade of powder and lipstick for
he woman in question. It often
akes a good deal of maneuvering to
discover these details, and for the
Subtlety of the interrogation it is best
not to wait until the day before
Christmas to ask a girl what shade of

Nowadays there are almost as
many women smokers as there are
mn, or so it seems, and these ladies
'ike smart accessories for their cig-
:ttes. Both cigarette cases and
tlhte:s, especially designed for fe-
ade iue, are on the market, and

favor with discriminating women.
Another bag, with great accommoda-
tien possibilities, is a severely tail-
ored, oblong which fastens with an
end clip. A novel feature of this end
clip of dull metal is a smart min-
iature watch set in the center.
Evening bags are important acces-
sories for formal dress and in this
case we may be more fanciful in both'
2olr and material. In fact, glittery
bags will add zest to any evening
frock. One very striking evening bag
is designed in a beautiful flower pat-
~tern on metallic brocade.

arlier date, flowers provide the an-
,wer to the question. If you must
nake a gift to a woman you know
. slightly and whose tastes you
,e unfamiliar with, flowers are al-
ways sure to please. They have the
additional virtue of being moderate
in price.
Handkerchief, Like Tie,
Is Good Christmas Gift
The handkerchief occupies the
ame position as the necktie in the
'isting of unusual Christmas pres-
n's, for though it has not surprising
riginality it is always welcome.
Women's handkerchiefs come in a
variety of materials, colors and sizes
and despite the apparent imperson-
dlity of handkerchiefs they can be
jade individual by monogramming.
Men are apt to think of the ortho-
dox white linen square with its plain
emstitched border when speaking
f handkerchiefs, but to a woman's
nind handkerchiefs suggest bright
olors, lace borders, filmy materials
that are almost transparent, and
large chiffon squares sprinkled with
sars and half moons. In other
vords for success in handkerchief
shopping for "her," cultivate the
emir ine point of view, however fan-
astic it may be.
East, Africa Serve
As Jewelry Motifs
Jewelry is "going native" this sea-
;on, with the adornments of Africa
and the rich East serving as the most
popular inspirations.
The jewelry may be genuine or
costume in patterns most bizarre, the
only apparent requisite being that
it must display good taste.
Above are shown three types ofl
bracelets all in the latest designs
according to Parisian decrees. The
upper one is of yellow metal and has
a hinge in the center. It fastens with
a clip and has a band of rhinestones
at its outer end. Below it to the left

or feminine use. The first of the

well-made case, and similar ones may

It holds a large number of cigarettes
and is practical as a gift for the heavy
The second box is in Macassar
wood. This is somewhat smaller in
Size than the first, but it is very smart
and light in weight and fits into the
smaller handbags.
The third case of the group is in
black enamel and chromium and car-
ries a space wherson a monogram
may be engraved. This box is as
3apacious as the first and its simple
design makes it very smart for use
in town with tailored clothes.
Until quite recently, the only cig-
arette cases available for ladies were
tiny affairs which carried at the out-
side a half a dozen or eight cigarettes.
They were probably made that way
because it was assumed that ladies
