Boost your gift, not your budget

Updated: Oct 9, 2020

Are you thinking "gosh, I'd like to do something other than just a candle or a backpack...but we just don't have the budget for great gifts this year"? To that I might say, "not so fast!" Select Shades has the ability to deliver a sunglass experience for as little as $50...and with no minimums required!

To paint the picture, here are ten favorite styles from ten brilliant brands...all of which are under $80 to gift!

Brand: Vogue Eyewear

Gender: Unisex

What we like: A classic square aviator, this evokes 70s-era swag but with modern colors and subtle curves.

Brand: Armani Exchange

Gender: Ladies

What we like: Flattering on most face shapes, this cross between a butterfly shape and wayfarer shape features subtle Bordeaux colors.

Brand: Arnette

Gender: Guys

What we like: Arnette is still made in Italy. You get great craftsmanship for the price and style that holds up to wear and tear as well as some of the more expensive sport brands. These clear slightly wrapped shades are a best-seller.

Brand: Brooks Brothers

Gender: Unisex

What we like: A sunglass collection is not complete without an iconic clubmaster shape. Brooks Brothers delivers with this beautiful shiny tortoise and gold squarish-clubmaster. Ready for par!

Brand: Ralph by Ralph Lauren

Gender: Ladies

What we like: A bold color on a square shape that is hot hot HOT right now. This is giving us early-70s vibes, but retro continues to be very popular.

Brand: Converse

Gender: Unisex

What we like: It's not extremely well-known that Converse has a sunglass line that is not only stylish, but feels great and sturdy. We were impressed when we met with the rep and tried these on. Excellent fit and comfort!
