Christmas and the end of the year is upon us, which may also mean taking part in a Secret Santa, White Elephant, Yankee or other gift swap with your colleagues, family and friends. Looking for that little something special to lay under the tree? Regardless if your celebration of choice is called Christmas, Hannuka, Kwanza, or the holiday for the rest of us, Festivus (any Seinfeld fans out there?), we are here to help you spread cheerful tidings with a few gift-ideas for your eyeglass-wearing self, loved ones, friends and coworkers.
Tired of carrying around two pairs of eyewear, one for when you need to see clearly and a second pair of sunglasses for outside? Or maybe your current photochromic glasses just don’t get dark enough for your taste? Then, JINS Switch frames are the perfect gift idea and answer. The JINS Switch family of frames come in an array of great-looking models, styles and colors, and they do just as their name suggests, letting you switch smoothly between, optical and sunglasses; a feature that is especially important when driving to help keep your attention and eyes on the road! They are a two-in-one glass solution thanks to a tinted lens sunglass switch plate that magically attaches to your frames. Okay, it isn’t really magic, but it feels like it! Small magnets embedded in the frame seamlessly connect the two, holding them in place, and a new hook feature provides additional fit security, even during your most active moments. A great gift suggestion for yourself, or someone you love.
Take a peek at our favorite JINS Switch pairs:
Everyone has their own style, and perhaps yours is more on the discreet side. If you prefer a natural look when it comes to your eyewear then you are in luck. Barely there, JINS Rimless glasses are not only lightweight, but also sleek and simple. Their understated, neutral design translates sophistication, yet come in a choice of gentle color touches such as artic white, champagne, gold, black and blue iron. The rimless collection is available with adjustable nose pads and an anti-glare coating on their high-index lenses whose special shape also reduces UV exposure while lowering distortion. Could there be a more perfect gift this holiday season?
In this digital age, a gift that could benefit yourself and everyone on your list is a pair of JINS SCREEN, eyewear that protects you from unhealthy blue light emitted by our many smart devices. What exactly is blue light? It’s the luminescence given off by our digital gear, such as cell phones, tablets, and computer monitors, that we absorb visually. Long exposure of our peepers to this to this light, due to proximity and long hours of screen time, may cause eye damage and promote insomnia. JINS SCREEN, available in “ready-to-go”, non-prescription models, and as a lens that may be added to any JINS frame, protect eyes by blocking 25% of these destructive blue rays. Up the ante to 60% protection by getting a pair of JINS SCREEN Night that do not distort color and may even help you sleep better. You can also add JINS SCREEN lenses to any JINS frame. What are you waiting for?

If you have had your eyes on a new pair of frames, ’tis the season to gift a pair to yourself, or maybe to your significant other if their current pair is starting to look a bit dated. With so many frames, weights, materials, models and looks to choose from that will fit and flatter your face, this gift should be an instant winner. Pop in to one of our Bay Area or Los Angeles stores and pick out your future specs available in clear-single vision only, or with additional lens options; they’ll be ready in 30-minutes.
Our differences are what make the world beautiful and diverse, but should in no way distract from the basic pleasure of giving to others. As the time-honored adage reminds us, it isn’t the gift itself, but the thought that counts. Share your holiday pics and JINS lifestyle by tagging @jinseyewear in your photos. We’d love to see how great you look. Happy Holidays!
