Time to Get Gifting

Posted by heather.h on

Christmas time is upon us and I’m sure you’ve been busy gathering presents for family and friends! It’s the best part if you ask me. It’s easy to forget about eye protection when it’s so cold and gloomy out, but you’ll soon find the sun reflection off the snow can be pretty harsh. Eye wear is a perfect gift because everyone needs it. I’ve gathered a few products to help you along the way…

For women you can’t really go wrong with some aviator sunglasses. The shape looks good on almost all face types and the style is super classic so no need to worry about them not being in fashion. Ray Ban RB3025 is a very classic style. Now they offer this model with many frame colors as well as lens options. Ray Ban recently releases some rainbow mirror lenses that no woman can resist, they are simply stunning. Serengeti also makes some stunning aviators. All the Serengeti lenses will be photochtomatic which means slightly light adjusting, this makes them great for both summer and winter. And if you want to get REALLY fancy Randolph Engineering offers the Pilot 23K Gold Aviator which is sure to dazzle the lady in your life!


For the man in your life there is a couple things I want to show you. For the sporty guy check out the Oakley GasCan. This model is a really popular one for us amongst men. There are many options to choose from and it’s at a great price point for Oakley’s. If the man in your life is into shooting take a look at the Wiley X Valor with interchangeable lenses. Most of these come with two colors of lenses to switch from indoor shooting to outdoor shooting and all Wiley X lenses are certified to ANSI Z87.1-2003 high impact and optical performance standards to keep his eyes safe. Plus, they look pretty cool. For the stylish man the Ray Ban Cockpit RB3362 is a super iconic style available in many color choices.


For the kiddies: For tiny tikes Julbo makes a great children’s line many of their models have a body style that can be comfortably worn upside down so kids can easily put them on themselves. All their kid’s like is also made with kid safe material and lenses to keep them safe. Check out the Looping and Booba models. For kids a bit older Bolle makes some great sunglasses: Sarah, Anaconda Jr., Piranha, and the Prince models will give you a great variety of styles and colors. If you have active youngsters Bolle also offers a great little line of protective kid’s glasses and goggles. Take a look at the Swag, Baller, Coverage, Crunch and Dominance models.


For your elder friends and family the OTG (over the glasses) sunglasses seem to be quite popular. Take a looks at the brands Coccons and Vistana.
