January Birthday Gift Guide 2013

I love a new year, it means a fresh start. I’m just finishing up putting all my gifts away and reorganizing my closet, but for some people, January means their birthday. I feel a little bad for those folks, mostly because it seems like their birthdays are an afterthought to the holidays.

Gifts for the Paranoid

Calling all my paranoid sisters out there, this gift guide is for you! Don’t be bashful, we all get a little nervous at times, and whether it be about our personal safety or personal hygiene or ability to text non-stop. I must admit I’ve always run a little more on the anxious side, and I like to prepare for a variety of contigencies.

Hilary-Wish-List

When Amanda mentioned that she and Megs were doing wish lists for PurseBlog and asked me to partake, it was a no brainer. We’ve spent the last two months staring at the best luxury items on the web to prepare for our holiday coverage, along with being fashion fanatics ourselves, so naturally everyone on the team has found themselves coveting a few items we’d really, really like to be surprised with.

Megs Christmas Wishlist

Truth be told, my wish list grows every single day; when I open my computer or walk around NYC, it’s super easy to find something I would absolutely love to have. What can I say, I really love gifts! But I wanted to put together a sweet and condensed list for you all to see what I am hoping I’ll find under the tree this year.

Gifts for Eccentrics

Everyone has that friend. THAT friend. The one who shows up to a casual brunch wearing things that you wouldn’t even know where to buy, for better or for worse. Sometimes that friend is impossibly chic, other times that friend is impossibly embarrassing.

Not to create a panic or anything, but Christmas shopping season (online, at least) is almost over. The whole gang here at PurseBlog has spent the past month scouring the web for the best and most giftable (that’s not a word, but we’re going to call it a word for now, ok?) items for people who love luxury accessories as much as we do.

Pet Gifts

As the sole member of the PurseBlog team with pets of my very own (two dogs), it was only natural that I was nominated to curate our guide filled with the best gifts for the pet lover. According to PetFinder.com, over 60% of dog owners will buy their pets a Christmas gift.

Gifts for Frenemies

As much as we try to be nice around here, sometimes, we can’t help but let a little naughtiness seep in. You’ve probably had a similar feeling at some point this holiday season – when charged with buying a gift for someone who you just don’t really like, don’t you wish you could satisfy your baser urges and buy him or her something to subtly telegraph your displeasure?

Gifts for the man in your life

I’m one of those people who absolutely adores shopping for others, especially Vlad. He and I have been together for almost 10 years, and every holiday season, I extensively plan precisely what I’ll get him. We already put together a list of the perfect gifts for dad, but if you’re still looking for a gift for the man in your life, we’ve got you covered.

holiday gifts for in laws

The holidays bring joy and cheer along with a heaping helping of stress. Let’s just be honest, holiday drama with families and friends alike happens every season. It doesn’t mean we love those people less, but there’s just something about preparing for the most wonderful time of the year that can create conflict.
