Let Her Add Her Own Touch
For a fashionista who is creative and enjoys the quirkier things in life, a DIY kit consisting of paints, glitter, rhinestones, glue, etc., for a T-shirt, bag, or a pair of sneakers, can make for a fun gift. Give her this kit, and watch her squeal with childlike glee.
Most fashionistas are extremely discerning. We all have probably had moments where our gifts to these style divas have just not made the mark, and the disappointment is apparent on their faces. What do you get someone who is extremely particular about what they wear? And even if they aren't difficult to please, what do you gift someone whose sense of style is unparalleled? The usual gifts, though not out of question, may fall short.
Get creative with your presents to the fashion lover in your life. Leave the usual accessories hamper, gift vouchers, magazine subscription out, and think truly out-of-the-box. If you are on the lookout for some much-needed inspiration, our ideas for some fantabulously quirky gifts may be your destination.
7 Gifts for Fashion Lovers You Will Not Go Wrong With
Like we said before, most fashionistas will love a gift that will truly befit their style diva status. Make it into their most-loved list with these presents.
A Book on Fashion
Is your fashionista friend also a bibliophile? What would be a better gift for them than a fashion-related book
that will tell them everything that they ever wanted to know about the style world? Non-fiction not their cup of tea? Don't fret! You can always choose to buy them a book like The Devil Wears Prada; funny, witty, and based on real-life experiences.
Fashion Week Passes
Any true fashion lover harbors dreams of attending a globally renowned fashion week. The catch here is to manage to snag passes for the same. While front row seats are almost always reserved for industry insiders, even getting back row passes will score you major brownie points. We suggest you plan this months in advance as getting these tickets is never easy. Don't forget to also buy them the official fashion week tee.
Framed Fashion Quote
Every fashionista worships one major fashion God. And divas as they were, they have all left behind a treasure trove of witty quotes. Do you know who your friend's fashion deity is? Then, get one of their quotes printed and framed for your friend. Get even more love and affection by designing the poster yourself.
Outfit in a Bag
When you are talking fashion, how can you not state the obvious? No style fanatic ever has enough clothes, accessories, or shoes. If you know your friend's style statement (and size) pat down, then upgrade her wardrobe with one more stupendous outfit. Make it a little more special by taking a photograph of the entire ensemble and making a personalized shopping bag with the photo, to give them the gift in.
Style Inspiration Book
While most lovers of clothes will always have their outfits planned out at least a week in advance, sometimes (especially when Pinterest doesn't help), it is nice to have an inspiration. Be your friend's style angel by giving her an outfit look book that details the different outfits she can wear. Add little notes on the side about the occasions she can wear them to. Of course, you will need inside help on this one; you need photographs of her clothes, don't you?
Funny Tote Bag
Fashionistas all love their It bags. You know that one much-lusted after carry-all that promises things that even heaven cannot? Well, maybe the exaggeration is too much, but the fact is most It bags are way beyond our budgets, and therefore, always tantalizing. While buying that bag may be a further-from-distant dream, if your friend likes a good joke, get her a bag that makes a witty remark about the situation.
Personalized Fashion Magazine
All fashion lovers, and we mean all, want their own centerfold in a fashion magazine. Take this dream a step further by creating a fashion magazine in which they are the sole star. If you pride your design skills, then this could be something that you can do yourself. If not, hire a professional to create this magazine for you. You can add their photographs, stories about them, and may be messages from other friends.
Take your pick from any of these gifts, and you are sure to hit a home run where gift giving is concerned. Watch your extremely fashion-conscious friend squeal in delight as she unwraps her presents, and pat yourself on the back for a job well done.
