Looking for some great gift ideas this holiday season? We’ve got you covered. Our 2014 Gift Guide highlights our favorite sunglasses for men, women, and kids. And of course, a SportRx gift card is a gift that always fits! Plus, all of these sunglasses are Rx-able for the four-eyed loved ones in your life!
Smith Facet – Don’t be fooled by the pretty frame. The Smith Facet is an ultra-durable pair of sunglasses that are also very functional. These fashionista sunglasses come in a range of cool colors. What we like about the Facet is the hidden rubber nose piece which gives it a sporty feel but with a dressier look. So if the lady on your list likes to do some jogging or hiking, Smith Facet sunglasses are the perfect fashion-function gift.
Electric Rip Rock – The Electric Rip Rock is a funky and cool sunglasses frame with a vintage style logo. It comes in some pretty sweet colors; pictured is the Rip Rock in Amber. A keyhole nose bridge and fun frame shape give it a retro feel. The Electric Rip Rock is perfect for the hipster on your list (or even better, for the person on your list who’s a hipster but doesn’t like to be called a hipster.)
Oakley RPM Edge – The RPM Edge is the newest model of women’s sport sunglasses by Oakley. It’s one of the most popular among our female athletes. It’s a women’s-specific frame that is fitted to accommodate a wide range of women’s faces. The Oakley RPM Edge provides a lot of lens coverage and features an abundance of Oakley’s proprietary unobtanium material so they don’t slip down your face when you’re puttin’ in work. The Oakley RPM Edge is perfect for the female triathlete, runner, golfer, cyclist, tennis player, hiking queen – virtually any kind of sport the active woman on your holiday gift list.
Oakley Tincan – The Oakley Tincan is what we like to call “Oakley being Oakley.” It has a sleek, high-tech, futuristic feel for the Oakley fan on your holiday list. The Tincan is a wearable statement piece, so it’s definitely not for the shy guy on your holiday list – especially this flashy Ferrari edition we have pictured. Tincan sunglasses feature Oakley’s screwless hinge technology, so you never have to worry about losing a screw – making it a great gift for the person on your list who may be missing a few! 🙂
Tifosi Tyrant 2.0 – Tifosi Tyrant 2.0 sunglasses with readers are perfect for the silver fox on your list. If you have a guy that’s over 45 and has about 15 pairs of readers laying around the house, he would love the Tifosi Tyrant 2.0 for sports – or everyday use in general. The Tyrant 2.0 has a little reader at the bottom of the lens, giving you great optical correction with UV protection all in one! So for a guy on the bike, it’s going to help him read his bike computer; for guy behind the wheel, it will help him see his speedometer; for a guy hitting the trails, it will help him read his stopwatch, and so on and so forth. So for the active guy (with maybe some grey hair) in your life, the Tifosi Tyrant 2.0 is a great way to go.
Smith Dockside – Smith Dockside sunglasses are awesome. What more can we say? Okay, we’ll say more. They have hidden spring hinges, they’re super comfortable, and they have a clean, sporty design to them but are casual enough for everyday. The Smith Dockside is a bigger frame so if you have a guy on your list with a big brain and a big case for it, then he needs a big pair of sunglasses, and the Smith Dockside is your go-to.
Ray-Ban Aviator – Whether male or female, you can’t go wrong with the Ray-Ban Aviator. From WWII pilots to your face, the Ray-Ban Aviator is about as classic as it gets. The iconic Aviator comes in a range of colors and sizes, making them a timeless gift for any fashionable recipient on your holiday gift list.
Oakley Holbrook LX – The Oakley Holbrook has become a runaway hit for Oakley. Featured is the Holbrook LX which is the luxury version of the Holbrook. The Holbrook LX is constructed with an acetate frame, which is the kind of material you’ll find on higher-end optical frames, as well as metal hinges instead of plastic for a more durable pair of sunglasses. The Oakley Holbrook is a great lifestyle frame for everyday wear and look great on both guys and gals.
Randolph Engineering Aviator – We’re loving this look from Randolph Engineering. We see a lot of actors and celebrities wearing the Randolph Aviator. This is more of a squared Aviator and it is made in the U.S.A., as is all Randolph Engineering eyewear, so the construction of this piece is done extremely well. The Randolph Aviator is a very durable, heavy-duty pair of sunglasses that fit your face really well, so the weight sort of disappears when you’re wearing the glasses. The signature look of the straight-back bayonet temple that you see in the picture is the way to go. Expect to see Randolph in the next couple years become bigger and more popular.
Ray-Ban New Wayfarer Junior – Wayfarers for kids. Enough said. These Ray-Ban Wayfarer Juniors are some of the most adorable sunglasses we’ve ever seen! The Wayfarer Junior is for the really little ones, boy or girl, ranging from about ages 2 to 5 years. Get the kid wearing a collared button down with diapers for a mini Tom Cruise look. Adorable!
Oakley Quarter Jacket – If you have a baseball player in little league, get them the Oakley Quarter Jacket. You will make them happy. Period. No really, if there are any parents or grandparents out there who are looking for the perfect present for their little leaguer between the ages of 7 to 10 (maybe even 11) the Oakley Quarter jacket is the way to go. If they’re a little older, the Half Jacket fits really well. Bottom line, get ‘em a Quarter Jacket and you will see a smile like you’ve never seen before.
Bollé Jenny – Bollé Jenny kids sunglasses are tailored for the 7 to 10-year-old All-Star on your list. This fun little frame has big kid features like anti-slip nose pads & temples grips and impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses. Bollé Jenny is fantastic for little girls and comes in a variety of cool colors!
Nike Champ – Nike Champ kids sunglasses are for the little champ on your holiday list. Nike Champ is a kid-specific sports frame with impact-resistant lenses and comes in a lot of fun, bright colors. Champ sports sunglasses are great for both girls and boys around the ages of 7 to 10 years. The Nike Champ shields your little one’s developing eyes with 100% UV protection and its lightweight frame and stays securely in place with rubberized nose pads.
The Gift That Always Fits
And last but not least, the gift that always fits. I mean, who doesn’t love a green Santa Clause? Most of us leave our decorations up ‘til March anyway, right? Okay, we’re joking. A SportRx gift card is always a good way to go. Especially for the prescription-wearers on your holiday list. Nothing beats giving the gift of vision!
