NYS Collection Gift Guide
Eyewear is an excellent holiday gift for friends and family alike. Despite the weather in the Northern Hemisphere, sunglasses still play a vital role in protecting our eyes from UV rays and glare that reflects from snow and other winter weather. Even though the purpose of sunglasses remains as vital in the winter months as they do in the summer, sunglasses are still treated as a seasonal item in many countries. As an accessory closely associated with spring and summer, sunglasses and other eyewear often lose their luster as gifts in lieu of other personal accessories like handbags, purses, gloves, scarves and jewelry.
However, with the options that go beyond sunglasses, you can find that there is also ample opportunity to give the gift of readers and optical frames if a family member or friend is quite satisfied with the sunglass collection they compiled over the summer. Another option could be fitovers which are enlarged sunglass frames that rest over an optical pair. Fitovers have become very popular for those who wear prescription eyewear every day and do not use photochromatic lenses to block UV light and glare.
To assist in the gift-giving process, we have put together a quick guide to help you find a pair that not only helps you with your holiday list but perhaps even enough room for a free pair for yourself when you purchase $50 or more this holiday season.
