These Presents Are A Shopper's Dream
Looking for the perfect gift for the shopaholic in your life? These 10 presents are perfect for shopping lovers everywhere.
A military jacket
Shopaholics pay attention to what's on trend and this winter, military jackets and jackets with military details are hot. Find one with a cinched waist and some awesome details.
Also hot for winter? Riding boots with leggings or skinny jeans. Yep, the equestrian trend is super-big right now, so even if she doesn't ride horses, she can get in on this chic look.
You know that saying "shop till you drop?" While a shopaholic might try to live it, their tootsies can get pretty tired doing so — especially if they're shopping in really fabulous-looking shoes (that may not be so fabulous-feeling). But folding flats can be pretty fabulous too. (Konvine, $23)
Another on-trend item that makes a fantastic shopaholic's present is a cape — we're talking about waist-length to knee-length — that's sleek with some fine details. Look for one you can picture her wearing.
A sassy satchel
Every shopaholic needs a fabulous handbag on her arm, and satchels like this one are perfect for toting all those shopping needs (makeup, water bottle, wallet... ). Look for one in colors and fabrics that match her personality. (T.J.Maxx, prices vary)
What does every shopaholic need after a long day of bargain hunting? A little pampering, of course! Treat her to a memorable day at the spa with a gift certificate to a favorite local spot. You can do it for specific services or let her pick.
Does she love shoes? Then this could be the present of 2012. Each month, members choose from a selection of shoes picked especially for them and order a pair through this shoe subscription service. ShoeDazzle is like candy for shoe lovers. (ShoeDazzle, starts at $25)
A box of beauty goodies to sample each month? The opportunity to easily order full-size options? Birchbox is a monthly subscription service where subscribers receive a box each month filled with beauty (and sometimes health) goodies. (Birchbox, starts at $30)
Confessions of a Shopaholic
This is an oldie but goodie. Sophie Kinsella's novel is about a girl who self-medicates through ... shopping! Though she can't afford the purchases, she finds solace in it. But everything changes when she lands a writing assignment that she truly loves. (Amazon, $8)
A Visa gift card
What does a shopaholic want most? To be able to buy fabulous things, of course. Give the shopaholic in your life a hand with the shopping with this handy gift card. Because it's a Visa, she can use it wherever she wants to — give her the options she loves! (Supermarkets, amounts vary)
