Tops In Jumpers By GAILE DUGAS, SEA Women's Editor Th» woman who Is handed a mink coat every single Christmas Boon wearies of opening boxes. It's the element of surprise that's lacking. So, In order to keep her happy, mix it up a little. A bottle of perfume here, some costume jewelry there, a handbag perhaps—little things but they'll take on real meaning. Men usually go Christmas shopping In a state of complete confusion, They clutch wildly at the nearest woman (any woman, clerk, aunt, sister, utter stanger, someone who's blind as a bat) and ask her what to buy. Reading a few timely shopping tips in advance would give them real poise and self-confidence as they dive through a revolving door and plunge into Christmas chaos. In a matter of handkerchiefs, for instance, don't just, buy a box. Rather ,buy linen handkerchiefs that have been rolled into rosebuds and mounted on fake stems. She can wear them as lapel ornaments first, then dismantle them and tuck them into her handbag. A stole of turquoise velvet wouldn't go arniss, especially if it's lined in taffeta and edged with deep fringe. And while you're in velvet, take a look at the compact and lip:tick sets made of velvet and embroidered in heavy gold bullion. Pretty! Gloves come in bewitching colors Neat little scallops outline the neckline of this practical Jumper for a busy teen-age wardrobe. Jewel neckline blouse Included.
