10 Kate Middleton Inspired Gifts for the Royally Obsessed
Kate Middleton is the pinnacle of style and grace. And we’re certain she’s probably one of the best gift givers on the planet (because she has amazing taste, obviously). While we can’t all be the Duchess of Cambridge, we can gift like her. Here are 15 items that exude Kate’s easy elegance.
1. Everlane The Slim Cotton Long-Sleeve Crew
The duchess’s casual outfit of choice? A striped long-sleeve tee, jeans and boots. We’re partial to this particular long-sleeve crew from Everlane because it’s made from an ultra-soft, 100 percent cotton material and cut with a flattering slim fit.
2. Aspinal of London Midi Mayfair Bag
Middleton has been spotted carrying this exact Aspinal of London bag in multiple shades, so naturally, it sells out on the reg. Thankfully, the black croc version is back in stock just in time for the holidays. Each one is hand-crafted from luxurious Italian calf leather, and the inside features three convenient inner compartments. We can see why the Duchess of Cambridge is such a fan of this sophisticated yet organized carryall.
3. Superga Women's Cotu Canvas Trainers
Middleton's been known to rock the same simple sneaks that her mother-in-law, Diana, did 20 years ago: Superga Cotu Canvas Trainers. She's worn them everywhere from the King's Cup Regatta to a casual meetup with friends, and since they're so comfortable and versatile, it's easy to emulate one of Middleton's royal off-duty looks on any given day.
4. Trilogy Rosehip Oil
This little bottle is the secret behind Middleton's natural glow. The duchess reportedly started using Trilogy’s hydrating and anti-aging certified organic rose hip oil while she was pregnant with Princess Charlotte in 2015 and hasn’t stopped since. The powerful formula is packed with nourishing antioxidants and essential fatty acids to promote healthier, younger-looking skin.
5. Velvet by Graham & Spencer Alanna Blouse
Just like Middleton's Gucci blouse, but without the Gucci price tag. The satin material of this Velvet by Graham & Spencer top can be dressed down for a day at the office or dressed up for a holiday party. Did we mention it comes in a rich blush and a shimmery navy shade? We’ll take one of each, please.
6. J.Crew Satin Padded Headband
Middleton regularly sports headbands, and we know she’d approve of this classic satin style. When she wore a similar sparkly one from Zara back in early November, it sold out overnight. Psst, they’re perfect for making second- or third-day hair look chic.
7. Stuart Weitzman Knee-High Boots
It’s no secret that the duchess loves her knee-high boots. In fact, she’s been spotted wearing the same pair over the years (they’re definitely an investment piece that stands the test of time). These over-the-knee boots from one of Middleton's favorite brands, Stuart Wetizman, are made from supple leather that screams sophistication.
8. Sapphire Earrings
True Middleton fans likely already have a replica of her sapphire ring, so get them some sapphire studs to complement it. This particular pair is made from lab-created round sapphires set in 14k white gold. “I love these earrings. The color is beautiful. They are the perfect size too—not too big and not too small,” one buyer raves. We’re sold.
9. Essie Ballet Slippers Nail Polish
Royal nail polish protocol is all neutrals, all the time. And Essie’s popular Ballet Slippers shade is a favorite of the palace’s for its subtle feminine tones. We know the queen would approve.
10. Jo Malone Orange Blossom Cologne
Behold: Middleton’s favorite perfume from the quintessential English scent brand Jo Malone. She even requested that candles with this scent be burned during her wedding ceremony.
