She Knows What She Wants: Series 1 (Gifts for your Girl Under $100)

This Holiday season we’ve compiled a list of 5 categories and asked a select group of bright minded females to do all the work for us. The lovely ladies must choose a gift for each category around $100 or less and describe why. Lets face it, it’s just not easy buying holiday gifts for women, so we’re going to do all the research for you. All you have to do is pick the gift that best matches your dame’s lifestyle. Use the guide as matter of fact or just a good start in your otherwise oblivious gift buying mind state.

Before you even begin to attempt to shop for a woman, you need to understand her mind is a labyrinth of conflicting logic, hidden innuendos and underlying thoughts your brain couldn’t even begin to fathom. We’re beginning the series by asking the brilliant, beautiful and bodacious Editor-in-Chief of M Magazine, Jacqueline Fulton, what gifts her man can get her to make her jingle bells rock these holidays.

- Bauble Bar’s Mini Monogram Necklace

Here’s a secret: We ladies go crazy for anything personalized, and since you’re probably not into the idea of his and hers monogrammed towels, this is the next best thing. The people over at Bauble Bar will custom design a pendant with your girl’s initials, and if you order by December 3rd, they guarantee Christmas delivery. The only challenge is finding out her middle name — good luck slipping that into conversation tonight. **(Order by Dec. 3rd for Guaranteed Holiday Delivery)


BCBGeneration’s Avery Croco Colorblock Tote in Graphite Citron
Price $88

If your girl’s into fashion, you can’t go wrong with this tote from BCBGeneration. It combines two trends that are really hot right now —  colorblocking and neon. Plus, it can fit all of her essentials with plenty of room to spare for when you want her to hold your wallet. Fashion and function is a win/win.


Shoes- Nine West’s Flax in Pewter Glitter $69

We know, we know — she has SO many shoes, but trust us, there’s just never enough. These sparklers from Nine West are a great addition to any collection because they’re blinged-out yet are neutral enough in color to go with just about anything. One last tip though: Make out with her immediately after she opens this gift because these heels are so cute she might start doubting your sexuality.


Accessories- Juicy Couture Knit Text Gloves & Glitter iPhone Case Gift Set $78

If your girlfriend’s tweets look something like this…
“UGH! I hate when I can’t type because I’m wearing gloves #girlproblems”
…then get ready to be the man. This gift set from Juicy Couture includes an iPhone case and a pair of gloves that are equipped with “touch sensitive technology on the thumb and index fingertips,” making it easy to text and surf the web while wearing them.


ImageWildcard- Cooking Classes; If you’re in NYC, Tapas to Tempt is a good one $95, inquire

“We never do anything FUN!” Sound familiar? You’ll be off the hook for about three months if you treat her to a cooking class this holiday season. No matter where you live, a simple Google search should hook you up with a good class in your area. The best part is it’ll be a blast for both of you, and it’s a good story to tell when you’re out with other couples and want to make all the other dudes look like thoughtless slackers.
