2014 Yule-Guide: The Hardest Person To Shop For

WHO IS SHE?:

She has a closet full of clothes, but nothing to wear. She wants everything and nothing at the same time. She doesn’t lean to one particular style, but embraces them all. She changes her mind almost as often as she changes her hair colour. She chooses what to wear based on how the moods strikes her. She has the means to buy what she wants, but would rather give than get.

CELEB SOUL SISTER:
JESSICA ALBA, SARAH JESSICA PARKER

 

 

WHAT TO GET HER:

She needs gifts that are different and unique. Something that has the WOW factor. Something that would surprise even her. Behold-our Gears & Gadgets Ultimate Lacquer Trunk! Filled with 20 best-selling lacquers, 4 treatments, and our favourite tools for the perfect mani every time. Plus, it’s in a chic, travel-ready trunk to complement her on-the-go lifestyle. She will never want for more lacquer-until S/S ’15.

2014 Yule-Guide: The Style Supreme

WHO IS SHE?:

She doesn’t follow the trends, she sets them. She knows all of the up and coming indie brands, and is the first to be their street ambassador. You call her when you need the perfect shoes with an outfit, or before purchasing an investment handbag, because her opinion is gold. 

CELEB SOUL SISTER:
ALEXA CHUNG, SOLANGE KNOWLES

 

WHAT TO GET HER:

This girl knows all when it comes to fashion, and appreciates the beauty in well-crafted items. A sweet vintage score, like a Chanel handbag, would be just the thing to make her glow come Christmas morning. She would never shy away from the classics, especially for her nails. Our Clockwork Couture gift set features our most high fashion colours, ready-to-wear any season.

Yule Guide 2014: The Haute Hippie

WHO IS SHE?:

This girl knows the art of relaxation. Not a month goes by without a visit to her aesthetician for a massage, facial, body scrub…or all of the above. She lives at yoga and has no qualms about carving out some ‘me’ time. She takes care of herself and cares about the contents of her cosmetics-they are equally as important as how they make her look.

CELEB SOUL SISTER:
CAMERON DIAZ, KATE HUDSON

 

WHAT TO GET HER:

She may do whatever it takes to keep her skin refreshed, her muscles relaxed, and her mind meditated, but a nail care routine is equally important. Enter the Apothecary gift set featuring our six classic nail treatments, including Horse Power, which is designed to strengthen tired nails. This luxurious box of ahhhhhh will quickly become her new ‘me’ time.  Other gift ideas for her:

  • Spa gift certificate
  • The latest yoga pants
  • Organic beauty products
  • Anything lavender-scented to lull her to sleep

Yule Guide 2014: The Social Butterfly

WHO IS SHE?:

The definition of working for the weekend, this lady is the life of the party and ready for  a good time. Not often seen without a glass of champers in hand, it’s always five o’clock somewhere. She’s the first person on the dance floor, and the last person off. She loves to have fun and looks good doing it. She may shine when tripping the light fantastic, but her inner beauty is equally bright.

CELEB SOUL SISTER:
KATY PERRY, GWEN STEFANI

 

WHAT TO GET HER:

Other solid gift ideas for this party girl:

  • Party Monster DVD
  • Portable Speakers

Yule Guide 2014: The Drama Queen

WHO IS SHE?:

Never the one to be a wallflower, this girl thrives on being the center of attention. She avoids shrinking into the background, rocking bright colours, wild patterns, and faux fur on a night out. Whether it’s stealing the mic at karaoke, or making a scene in public, this chick lives for the spotlight.

CELEB SOUL SISTER:
MILEY CYRUS, NICKI MINAJ

2014 Yule Guide: The Luxury Loyalist

WHO IS SHE?:

Money is no object, and she has no problem showing it. This woman has champagne taste, and a lust for the finer things in life. She’s got her jeweler on speed-dial and makeup artist at her beck and call. No need ask who she is wearing, it’s obviously couture.

CELEB SOUL SISTER:
KIM KARDASHIAN WEST, JENNIFER LOPEZ

 

 

WHAT TO GET HER:

A private jet to an exotic location, or a bottle of Dom Perignon would do nicely for this lady, however sometimes chic comes in smaller packages. This gal is really looking for glam, and our Gilded Gears set is just the thing to set her Chanel aflutter. High-fashion metallic and satin finish lacquers will perfectly adorn her and add the pop of sparkle she is renowned for her in circles. These colours will make even Mrs. Claus green with envy!

2014 Yule-Guide: The Over-Achiever

WHO IS SHE: 

The domestic diva, a perfectionist. She’s the friend who is always first to volunteer to throw a baby shower or host a dinner. Her outfit isn’t complete without a pristine manicure, and she would never leave the house with a hair out of place or sans lipstick.  She would never do anything moderately, and loves to express artistic freedom, be it a cake or a mani.

CELEB SOUL SISTER:
TAYLOR SWIFT, GWYNETH PALTROW

 


WHAT TO GET HER: 

If the Over-Achiever hasn’t already provided you with her fully-detailed holiday wishlist, here are some gifting ideas we love for her.  She probably already has a head start on planning 2015, but consider a Lilly Pulitzer agenda to keep her organized.  This gal always appreciates tools that keep her looking her best.  Another idea is a hand-held steamer so her linens and wardrobe are always immaculate.  She would even appreciate a high-tech version of the sweater-shaver! While a marble cake stand from Williams-Sonoma may very well fit the bill for this out and out entertainer, our pick is geared more toward her primp and pamper side. The Art of Alchemy lacquer collection would give her creative license to experiment with colour as well as two tools guaranteed to create a flawless nail art look. Perfection in a box.
