25 Days of Christmas: Gift Guide for the Hip Chick

Posted on: December 12, 2015

Day 12: Gift Guide - Hip

This is not the best description for her, but I’m going with it. This gift guide is inspired by my other BFF. She’s far more hip than I and more fashionable for sure. A few things are actually on her wishlist and a couple are things that I think she’d like. As you can see, there are gender neutral items that might for the hip guy in your life.

  1. Embellished Gold Bracelet (J. Crew Factory, $17.99, reg. $36.50) – Because she probably likes jewelry. I love this necklace and I love that it’s on sale, too.
  2. Sony USB Stereo Turntable (Amazon, $128.00) – Albums seem to be making quite the comeback. While I don’t have one, I can certainly see why anyone would want one. This turntable will also convert your vinyl tracks to digital format.
  3. Michael Kors Petite Darci Crystal Bezel Bracelet Watch (Nordstrom, $181.35, reg. $195.00) – Every lady needs a gorgeous watch. I’ve seen several MK watches that are absolutely beautiful. You can check the MK site for more options or any major department stores if you’re looking for sales and discounts
  4. FitBit Charge (Amazon, $90.30, reg. $129.95) – I happened to purchase one of these for someone else in my life. I was stunned to see the price difference depending on the size and color. Right now, these are on backorder on Amazon, as was mine. However, I ordered it on Wednesday and it arrived this morning. If you’re looking for a different retailer, Best Buy doesn’t have them on sale, but will price match what you find on Amazon.
  5. Purple Rain – Prince (Amazon, $20.99) – I love a good package/combo/companion gift. This would go well with the Sony Turntable. As I mentioned, vinyls are all the rage these days and most Barnes & Noble locations have a pretty good selection. I’ve seen Michael Jackson, Adele, soundtracks (Saturday Night Fever, Grease, Clueless), Sinatra, Lana Del Rey, The Beatles, Kendrick Lamar… The options are quite varied.
  6. Friedline Crossbody Bag in Cognac (Aldo, $45.00) – It’s a handbag essential – the crossbody. Great for festivals or traveling.

Hardly in the Ville, but always reppin. #vacation #beach #gatornation #gogators #Summer18
The last member of the trio that keeps me sane is @toni_with_a_t. As much as I hated the grad school that shall not be named, I can always look back on our friendship as the highlight of that time. Thanks for always being down for whatever ridiculous idea either of us can come up with and for being an incredibly encouraging friend. I am inspired and motivated by your faith, I can only hope to emulate your ability to accept feedback, and I am endlessly amused by the semi-secret hoodrat ratchet chick that lives inside of you. #NationalBestFriendDay
Next! This is my Eebs. She moved all the way to Baltimore so we could hang out. Fine, ok, that was a lie. But! She's still a great friend. @eebs101, I am in awe of your dedication to serving others, I am impressed by your 17 job grind, and I admire your optimism. Thank you for keeping me from going off on people and for helping to expand my thoughts and for accepting the times when I just want to be stubborn and sit in my feelings before I even consider really addressing them. And thanks for being there when I'm ready to do so. To next year's island vacation! (Which will happen cause we need it.) #nationalbestfriendday
It's #NationalBestFriendDay so let me do my shoutouts to the trio. First up is @Jennifre, whose years of service I won't mention cause that'll age us both. Thank you, thank you, thank you for being a fantastic friend over the years. We've both grown as people and in a way that keeps us bonded rather than pulling us apart. I value your honesty, I applaud your creativity, and I appreciate all of our conversations. May the Broadway shows keep a'comin, may we return to Whine & Wines, and may we always remember that we are here to support each other. This one is for you - FOR YOOOOUU! (That's my Principal Frye sketch voice, btw.)
