13 Gifts for Your BFF You’ll Want to Steal Back: Holiday 2011

And by steal we mean “borrow” … forever.

-April Daniels Hussar

Gifts for your BFF

Basically, the way I choose presents for my girlfriends, sisters and mom to is find stuff that I myself would love, and then try to actually wrap it up and give it away instead of hoarding it. (So, side note to my coworkers / friends / husband / Santa: if you’re reading this, consider it a handy guide to that dilemma that’s been haunting you — haunting, I say! — all month…what to get your’s truly for Christmas! You’re welcome!)

Zodiac Cuffs by Jessica Kagan Cushman

Ha! Foiled — the only way you can “borrow” this is if you share the same birth sign as your bestie. So, odds are you can’t. We saved you from yourself and your thieving ways! ($85, opensky.com)

The Bonne Femme Cookbook: Simple, Splendid Food That French Women Cook Every Day

The Bonne Femme Cookbook

Everyone knows French girls are the chic-est. This book is adorably designed and filled with delish recipes (including yum cocktails) and fun little entertaining tricks. How do you say “It rocks” in French? ($16.47, amazon.com)

(Important note: I already own this cookbook! Do not buy for me!)

(What’s that? You insist on knowing what cookbook my greedy gracious little heart years for? Why, since you can’t live without knowing, may I bashfully direct you to 40 Years of Chez Panisse: The Power of Gathering by Alice Waters and Friends and/or The Nancy Drew Cookbook) (omg! I need this! )

Vermeil “Minis” from Isabelle Grace Jewelery

Also impossible to steal! Unless you are clever enough to give this to someone with the same initials as you. These are gorgeous, and I wear mine constantly. (<– note: no need to buy this for moi! Carry on with the rest of the list!) Also, some Isabelle Grace items take up to two weeks to ship, the vermeil minis are ready to go, so fear not. ($55 per charm; $15 for gold filled cable chain or $40 for gold filled ball chain, IsabelleGraceJewelry.com)

Rebecca Minkoff BFF iPhone covers

Speaking of things you can’t steal — this solves the stealing urge because it’s a simultaneously a gift for your BFF… AND A GIFT FOR YOU. Right? Brilliant. ($68, shopbop.com)

“Breakfast at Tiffany’s” Sleep Mask

For the girl who loves Audrey Hepburn and her beauty sleep. So, like, everyone. ($38, marygreen.com)

Hidden Owl Teacup

Gosh bless Fred Flare, whose product description is so great I’m just going to paste it here: Do not be alarmed!” says the owl in your teacup, “I am just checking something out.” So let him. He’s no bother, honestly. You’ll grow to love him, and when you use any other teacup, you’ll think, where’s that owl? Well, sweetheart, he’s only in this cup. Only this one. ( $24, fredflare.com).  Pair it with this duckie tea infuser and your tea-lovin’ love with love you. ($15, fredflare.com)

    Oh my! These are definitely the kind of gifts that while wrapping, one must remember the point is to give, not keep. Love the tunics, they look incredibly scrumptious.

    YOU ARE A BETTER BETTY THAN I IF YOU ACTUALLY HAND THESE GIFTS OVER TO THE INTENDED RECIPIENTS!

    The Fred Flare owl in the teacup is simply adorable! I don’t think I could ever wrap one up for a gift without nabbing one for myself!
