A Gift Guide That's Pretty Damn Glam

After a month of complete and utter blogger's block I have returned with a vengeance - and I come bearing gifts.

With just over 2 weeks til' Christmas we are about to enter panic-buying season, and nothing is more stressful than going shopping without any idea of what to get. 

Everyone knows the best presents are personal. Going for something that suits a person's style/personality is always a winner - and avoids the embarrassing recycled gift situation.

If you're having a mental block about what to get your friend and time's running out, I bring you inspiration in the form of my 3 all-time fave fictional characters - all very different but all equally fabulous.

All that's left to do is decide - is she a Holly, a Carrie, or a Regina?


First of all, if you haven't seen Breakfast at Tiffany's, do yourself a favour and watch it immediately. Holly Golightly is the original New York City it-girl and she just oozes elegance. If you've got a particularly classy friend who likes to look expensive at all times, check out the Holly-inspired gift guide below for some ideas...
Xmas Gift Guide - Holly Golightly

BUY IT: Fur Stole - £9, Eye Mask - £9, Lipstick - £26, Gloves - £38
Style Book - £12, Sunnies - £25, Earrings - £4, Robe - £24


We all know a Regina George. Whether it be the popularity, the overwhelming presence of pink (on wednesdays, naturally) or the downright bitchiness, there is no shame in channelling a bit of mean girl attitude when the time is right. Here are some gift ideas for your local queen bee, white gold hoops included...
Xmas Gift Guide - Regina George

BUY IT: Lipgloss - £14.50, Jumper - £16, Mug - £10, Book - £15, Shoes - £45
Clutch - £10, Skirt - £25, Phone Case - £6


Last but by no means least, Carrie Bradshaw. She's always overdressed, always on the go and never afraid to push the sartorial boat out. If your pal is creative, hardworking or just downright fabulous, treat her to one of these glam pressies...

And if your bestie doesn't identify with any of the above? 
Buy her a pair of festive socks - it's her own fault for not being fabulous enough.

Happy shopping!
