Holiday Shopping Tips

Cortney Slaight

After talking to a lot of friends and family, I have come to the conclusion that almost everyone hates shopping for the fashion savy ladies on their list. What do you get a girl who has almost everything they want? Because let’s be honest, if you’re a true fashionista and you like something enough, odds are you’re going to buy it.  And on the off chance that you actually find something that they don’t have, how do you know if it’s something they’d actually wear? Well, have no fear. I have ideas for you. Whether it’s your best friend, roommate, sister, mom, or girlfriend, here’s the scoop on what they want.

1. Fashion Box ($19.57)

Fashion Box – Amazon

 

This book covers sixteen fashion essentials along with the fashion icons who wore them. From Marilyn Monroe to Grace Kelly to Sarah Jessica Parker, this book has some of the most fashionable women of their times. It’s sure to be a great read for that trendy girl in your life.

2. Fujifilm Instax Mini 7S White Instant Film Camera, Automatic Built-In Flash – Amazon ($62.83)

Fujifilm Instax Mini 7S White Instant Film Camera, Automatic Built-In Flash – Amazon

Even though it’s a digital era, I think most fashionistas will agree that there is something to be said for an instant print in your hand at the touch of a button.  Can’t decide which dress to wear for that special occasion? How great would it be to snap a couple pics and have the prints right infront of you for comparison?!

3. Juicy Couture Spray Pen Set – Sephora ($35)

Juicy Couture Spray Pen Set – Sephora

A girl can never have too many different perfumes. This is a great sampler set. The set include 3 .33 oz sprays in three different scents: Juicy Couture, Viva La Juicy, and Couture Couture. I will personally vouch for Viva La Juicy. It smells amazing!

Faux fur is such a huge trend right now. You can’t go wrong almost anything faux fur this Christmas. However, this vest is super cute and a great way to glam up any outfit.

5. Keurig Coffeemaker, B40 Single Serve – Macy’s ($119.99)

Keurig Coffeemaker, B40 Single Serve – Macy’s

I don’t care how great your outfit is, if you’re exhausted, you’re not going to look great. That’s why a coffeemaker is such a great gift idea for that lady on your list. This particular one is a single serve unit that makes either an 8 oz. or 10 oz. cup. As with all Keurigs, this is not limited to just coffee either. This machine can make coffees, teas, etc.  A 12-count variety pack  of coffees and teas is included with the machine.

If you’re looking to update her tech gear, you might as well find her some trendy headphones. Skullcandy has a variety of headphones: over ear, on ear, and ear buds. Whatever kind you want, you’re bound to find something for her. My personal pick are these 2011 Roc Nation Aviator in Brown Gold ($149.99)

8. Simply Vera Vera Wang Nicky Patent Satchel – Kohl’s (Orig. $109,  Sale $65.40)

 

Simply Vera Vera Wang Nicky Patent Satchel – Kohl’s

While you may not want to be too daring when shopping for the girl who has everything, there are two things to remember: 1) Keep it simple. – She’ll buy the more daring pieces for herself. 2) Every girl loves Vera Wang. That’s why this satchel is such a great option. Available in two colors (Oxblood and Pewter), this could easily become her go-to bag.
