She Knows What She Wants: Series 6 Lauren (Gifts For Your Girl Under $100)

For our 6th edition of She Knows What She Wants, Lauren, a Beauty PR Account Coordinator, gives us her favorite holiday gifts you can get your girl for 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. The lovely Lauren is a somewhat of a truffled, trendy fashionista and the perfect city girl to take girlfriend gift advice from, being that women dominate her workforce. She’s also pretty hot.

“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.” -George Washington

Jewelry- Jennifer Zeuner Sandy Relief Necklace $143

One of my favorite jewelry designers, Jennifer Zeuner, has come out with a line of sandy relief necklaces. For every necklace sold 50% of the proceeds will be donated to the American Red Cross Relief Fund for Victims of Hurricane Sandy. This is a great way to give and give back. In case you’ve haven’t looked below a girls neck in a while, type necklaces are making a comeback.


ImageBags- BCBG Harlow Textured Envelope Clutch $78

I never like to carry a big bag when I go out at night. This clutch is the perfect size and will add a pop of color to any night time look. From casual weekend looks to elevated evening ensembles, this chic envelope clutch is a must-have addition to every style. This is a lay up if you’re on the fence about getting a bag. We could be very, VERY particular, but this is a classic look that she’ll get some use out of.


Shoes-  Vince Camuto ‘Olita 2’ Flat $98

A classic pair of ballet flats is a must-have. These are effortlessly chic and I love the contrasting textures! A no brainer for any boyfriend, a simple aesthetic with a timeless look. Every girl always needs a good pair of flats.


Accessory- La Mer- Black Sequin Layer Wrap $96

Edgy or classic, this collection has a variety of styles, but be careful with this one. Make sure your girl is on the less conservative side of fashion, maybe ask one of her close friends before you make the move, but if you know her well, this could be a home run, slam dunk, touchdown, enter relatable sports reference here.


ImageWildcard-  Tory Burch Printed Coated Poplin E-Tablet Sleeve $95

I rarely take my ipad out of the house because I’m afraid it will break. This is a cute, playful way to protect your tablet if your lady is an on-the-go girl who needs easy access to her tablet or just likes to read on the way home from work. Anything from Tory Burch will put you under her mistletoe for the holidays.
