Gift Guide 2010: For Her!

Hi everyone! Sorry for the lack of posts last week! Got caught up with the Thanksgiving craziness- between baking pies, hanging with family, doing homework, and shopping, last week was a lot of fun, but a lot of crazy, too! I'm hoping to put together a short but sweet gift guide this week, so stay tuned! Today, I'm starting with great gifts for the girls in your life.

One of my favorite gifts to give is monogrammed stationary. It's personal, but you don't have to worry about a size or style, and if you ask me, any girl (or guy!) should have something special to write thank you notes or just anytime letters! This monogram notecard, $43 for 50, at Paperstyle, is one of my current faves.

Last year, I gave my little sister a couple magazine subscriptions for Christmas, and she's loved getting a gift every month! Since it is only about $12-$15 a magazine, it's a great gift if you're on a budget, or get a few if you'd like to spend more. Personally, I'd go to the newsstand and wrap up whatever magazine you're gifting, so they still have something to open on Christmas morning. This site has all the Conde Nast titles.

For the girlfriend that already has everything, I think these DKNY pop top cashmere gloves would make a great gift. At $65, they are definitely a little more splurge-y, as far as knit gloves go, but the mitten top pops off to let your fingers be free for things, and better yet, the thumb has a slit so you can slip out a thumb to send a text or email from your phone without freezing off your other four fingers! And, they are cashmere, so they are super luxe.

For the makeup-loving girl on your list (and let's face it, most girls are!) this Urban Decay Naked Palette would be the ultimate gift. This thing has been sold out online for most of the time since it came out, but a few pop up in stores from time to time, so if you see one, grab it, and make a girl (or yourself!) really happy! At $44 for 12 full size colors that are perfect neutrals, it's a bargain (Urban Decay polishes are usually $17 each), and the pigmentation in these shadows are superb. 

Any more ideas for gifts for the girls in your life? Let me know!
