Christmas Gifts Every Fashionista Will Go Crazy For
Christmas is getting close and if you haven’t done your gift shopping yet (or at least made a shopping list) you are probably in big trouble. Not only will you have to come up with some great gifts for your loved ones, but you will also have to wait in long lines with all the other people who waited for the last minute. If you think that buying a Christmas gift for a friend/family member with passion for fashion is a piece of cake – think again. Fashion enthusiasts fall into hard-to-please category, because you have to worry not only about their unique taste, but also about trends. Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Here are few gift ideas for your fashionista friend.
You know what comes after January? February. And you know what’s in February? Maybe not, but we bet your fashionista girl knows that it is the time of Fashion Week. Of course it is very difficult to get in to the 4 giants of fashion weeks (New York, London, Paris and Milan), but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try or that you can’t get tickets for your own city. Another interesting (and cheaper) way to get her into the center of fashion is to apply her for volunteering at the shows.
All-about-Her Fashion Movies
Or why wouldn’t you just appear on her front door with a bottle of champagne, strawberries, chocolate and Coco before Chanel, Devil Wears Prada, Funny Face, Unzipped, Bill Cunningham New York DVDs, and spend the evening sharing her interests about fashion?
Ready to Snap!
Another way to make her feel special (like a supermodel to be precise) is to book a professional photo session for her. She might have thousands of Instagram selfies in her favorite clothing combination, but no filter can do justice to a fashionable wear as a professional camera could.
A Classic Dress
Every stylish girl knows that there are some classic pieces she must have in her wardrobe. Two of these most certainly evergreen dresses are little black dress and wrap dress. Wrap dress usually fits all shapes and sizes, but when you are shopping for LBD, you have to know whether you should search for plus size dresses and what cut fits her body shape the best (hourglass – V-neck, apple – shift dress, banana – side cutout, pear – fit-and-flare).
A Vanity Case
Fashion girls love their makeup almost as much as they love their clothes. This means that you can’t go wrong with buying her a beautiful vanity case to keep all of her cosmetics. It is always a good idea to go with some classic color and minimal prints, and to choose a case with plenty of compartments and pockets.
Or Some Makeup
Buying makeup products is a bit more complicated than buying a vanity case. You have to think about her taste, skin type and trends. You can always go with the products she already uses, or take your chances with trendy deep-color matte lipsticks, blue eyeliner or glittery eye-shadow.
This includes everything from bags and belts to earrings and hair jewelry. All of these pieces have to be on-trend or at least classic. Here’s a hint: the trending bags for 2017 are cross-body, furry, animal skin and minaudières. As for the jewelry, you still can’t go wrong with chocker necklaces.
A Gift Card
Sounds awfully uninspiring, right? But it doesn’t have to be. Think of it this way: you are giving her a magical card that will allow her to buy anything she wants. Wow! Just make sure you find the right store. Certainly, she doesn’t need an Ikea gift card.
We helped you dodge a bullet here. Your fashion-forward friend will be thrilled with any of these gifts, and you can only hope that she will get something equally as good for you.
