2013 Holiday Gift Guide

By Paola Baluyot

We all have “those people” in our life … the ones who are picky or seemingly have it all. But have no fear – I’ve searched the InterWebs and local businesses to bring you some great ideas for 5 prototypes:

The Fashionista


 The Outdoors (Wo)man


 The Beauty Guru


  • MAC Holiday SetMakeup lovers wait every year for MAC’s Holiday sets. The packaging has a really cool art deco theme. If Daisy Buchanan came out with her own makeup line this would be it.
  • “Pretty Powerful” by Bobbi BrownUncertain of your makeup knowledge? Gift this book to your makeup-obsessed friend without having to spend hours at Sephora. (Or better yet, purchase one for yourself).
  • Acrylic Cosmetics Organizer by Bath BazaarThis stylish organizer is a favorite among the Kardashians. Catch their cameos in their reality show!
  • Jo Malone CologneThis popular UK import is the perfect gift for the scent-sational friend with the enviable perfume collection.
  • NARS Guy Bourdin Gift SetInspired by fashion photographer Guy Bourdin, NARS perfectly captures the drama and glamour in their holiday set.

The Foodie


The Techie


  • iPhone 5sApple’s rumored precursor to the iPhone 6, is the current crème de la crème of the smartphone world.  With all new features to warm any techy’s hard drive, this gift is a for sure win.
  • Marc by Marc Jacobs Laptop CaseThis cute laptop case is for the fashion savvy techie who appreciates the practical and the fabulous.
  • Kindle FireThe Kindle Fire is ideal for the bookworms in your life. New features include HD display and a longer battery life for those late night George R.R. Martin marathons.
  • Bose SoundLink Mini Bluetooth SpeakerPlay music from any room or tote it around wherever you go (as long as there’s wi-fi). But don’t let its size fool you; this bad boy is, after all, made by Bose.
  • Swarovski Crystalline USB KeyTwo words: Swarovski. USB.
