Gift Guide: Fixes for the Fashion-Forward

It happens every year: I vow to have my Christmas shopping done by Thanksgiving, so I can enjoy a stress-free holiday rather than running ragged trying to mark everyone off my list. But do I ever follow through? Of course not! That’s why I’m such a sucker for gift guides—anything that can help me come up with great gift ideas I can buy quickly and easily is a total godsend. And though I’m sure I’ll read each and every guide that pops up on my Twitter feed or in my inbox throughout the month, I thought it’d be fun to create some of my own this holiday season.

First up: gifts for the fashion-forward ladies on your list. This is the girl for whom a run-of-the-mill sweater or plain pair of pajamas just won’t do. Whether it’s in her stocking or wrapped up under her tree, this girl needs a gift that’s chic, special and oh-so-envy-inducing. To suit any budget, I’ve rounded up some gorgeous gift ideas under $50, $100 and $250.

Winter accessories like scarves, gloves and tights are a must, and opting for sassy prints and unexpected colors makes these gifts anything but boring. Give your beauty-obsessed sister a great brush set from Elizabeth Arden or a polish trio from Juicy Couture, and surprise your stylish coworker with cute accessories like a calf-hair belt, a floral-printed umbrella or jaw-dropping earrings.

Let the lady smell amazing with a soft new scent or delicious candle, and give her something to have and to hold with a new iPad case or color-blocked clutch.

Cover your best friend’s basics with a pair of posh purple sunglasses, a crocodile-skin bag, a jewel-toned watch, and leather goods like shorts and wallets.
