10 Perfect Gifts for Your Best Friend Who Loves Vintage Clothing and Bright Colors
Stressed about Christmas shopping? Only purchased 3 of the 13498 gifts on your list? Join the club, my friend! I made us some hot chocolate.
In honor of procrastinating holiday shoppers like you and me, I'm putting together some super personalized gift guides over the next few days. They're inspired by composites of the people in my life, and I'm sure you know folks like these, too. First up — 10 pretty gifts (at every budget) for the gal who's always got your back, who hangs a dreamcatcher above her bed, and who can usually be found scouting the Free People sale racks when she's not selling yarn sculptures in her Etsy shop.
A googly-eyed necklace
This all-knowing googly eye will watch over her on dark days, and the overall effect is goofy and pretty, just like her.
