Holiday gift guide

Staying Classy chapter 13

Now that Thanksgiving is over, it is finally acceptable to start thinking about holiday gifts. But the giving holiday brings a lot of stress to give the right thing: especially for your friends. How do you find the rigunnamed-4ht gift to say not only ‘Merry Christmas’ but also ‘Thanks for putting up with me?’ If you dig a little deeper, finding a present isn’t so hard.

To start, think about your friends’ interests. If they are into trends, try to mix and match a plaid blanket scarf with a monogram necklace. Or if you don’t want to splurge on a monogram item, get a single initial necklace. If your friend is more sporty, get a pair of Nike shorts in their favorite color and some matching hair ties. And for the in between girl, you can’t go wrong with a lotion set, nail polish or a Starbucks gift card.

When it comes to the friend you’ve been close with for what seems like forever, a unique and personalized gift can be extremely meaningful. A cute frame with a picture of you guys is always sweet. Or if you’re a ‘go hard or go home’ type of person, a scrapbook full of memories and inside jokes is something they’ll most likely keep forever. Speaking of inside jokes, a goofy, gag gift that involves a joke of yours is perfect to add to the real gift.

No matter what the holiday, your present will be the best of the year. And make sure to stay classy this holiday season.
