Gifts for your favorite girlfriend
She'll help you deck the halls and sing back-up on carols. Whether she's been naughty or nice, here are the perfect gifts to bring good tidings to your best helper.
For the Happy Hostess: Each piece in the Swedish-designed Midas glassware collection ? which includes a carafe and stem-less Champagne, wine and water glasses ($25-$70) ? is hand-dipped in gold to appear as if filled with shimmering liquid.
For the Snow Bunny: What's old is new again. All-American wool-maker Pendleton has teamed up with Manhattan's ultra-hip Opening Ceremony boutique to design chic and sturdy carry-along blankets ($80) that are perfect for impromptu winter picnics.
For the Fashionista: Written by Mad Men costume designer Janie Bryant, The Fashion File ($27) is packed with style and shopping tips (to bring that 60s look home) and a peek into the show's famous dressing rooms.
For the Beauty Queen: Paint her holidays in deep red and sleek chrome with the new limited-edition Lancôme by L'Wren Scott, a festive collection of lipstick, shadows and polishes ($14.50-$42).
For the Society Lady: Arm her for holiday parties with this tiny Sunset bag ($185). Made from soft Italian leather, the retro-chic purse layers three pockets of red and gray panels for easy storage. A detachable strap turns it into the perfect evening clutch.
