Holiday shopping for your BFFs can be a little daunting. You want to give gifts that they'll genuinely love, and that can take a little more effort than popping by the mall for an hour. To take off the pressure, we got shopping advice from a pro: Jeanne Grey, creator of "Grey Layers." The New-York-based blogger is a cult favorite for her effortlessly disheveled, icy-gray lob and ability to make minimalist, monochromatic looks look totally chic, and she always surprises with an unexpected pop or detail. We're seriously obsessed with her style, so she seemed like the perfect source for advice on what to gift your whole crew this year. Flawless 'grams = flawless gifts, right? It's just math.
In partnership with Swarovski, we asked her to lend a dose of her sensibility to our holiday shopping lists — and then decked her out in their brightest baubles for inspo. According to Grey, her gifting philosophy is simple and sweet: If she loves what she’s wrapped up under the tree enough to want it herself, her lucky recipient will love it too. From sparkly friendship bracelets to thoughtful gadgets, there’s something here for all of the girls on your list. Now, the struggle will be not keeping everything for yourself.
