GeneralBest Gift Ideas for 2012!

If you’ve ever been stuck on what to give that special someone for the holidays, there’s nothing like a good gift guide to point you in the right direction. Starting at just $10, I’ve put together a collection of some of my favorite picks from LuLu*s and beyond!

Chic trinkets like watches, sunglasses, and jewelry make great stocking-stuffers, and it may be time to spring for that cute Wildfox necklace your bestie/sister/girlfriend has been eying!

I always love receiving a favorite film, and Moonrise Kingdom is definitely my pick of the year, along with the newly released gift sets from Blue Lagoon Iceland. It’s pretty much time to pamper your loved ones like never before!

Even if she hasn’t sent you her Wish List, a good coat is always well appreciated. TIP: Sneak into her closet and measure one that fits her well.

1. On Your Side Mint and Gold Watch, 2. Precious Metals Black and Silver Sunglasses, 3. Haute Coat-ure Striped Coat, 4. Moonrise Kingdom DVD, 5. Wildfox Poison Vial Rose Gold Necklace, 6. Blue Lagoon Iceland Beautifying Body Kit, 7. First Sip Two-Tone Taupe Scarf.

CelebrityComing Attraction: Oz: The Great and Powerful

Rest assured, Warner Bros, I now own it on copyrighted DVD, so no hard feelings).
