As someone who's fashion mad, I know what it's like when someone gives you a gift that's not to your tastes, shall we say. Of course, for every gift I get I'm always very grateful, but there are some presents I like more than others. This means that when I'm picking a present for another fashion lover, I always like to make sure that I get it spot on. Whether it's a birthday or Christmas present, or just a little something to brighten their day, I like to make sure I get it right.
To do this, I've come up with a few easy to follow steps that make picking a present for a fashion lover much, much easier. In case you struggle with gifts for your fashion-loving sister or friend, I thought I would share my top tips with you.
Make a list of where she shops
The first step is to make a list of where she shops. This is important as this will help you to work out what type of things she'd like and appreciate and what gifts wouldn't be well suited for her. Every shop has a certain style, which is why it's worth taking into account the places where your friend, sister, cousin, etc. likes to shop. That way you can make it much easier for yourself to find her a gift that you know she'll love.
Take her style into account
The next step is to take her style into account. This is important, as if you fail to do this, it's impossible to choose a gift that she'll love. Look at how she dresses as well as how she decorates her home - this will give you an idea of what type of style she likes. You most probably already know her style, but if you don't, take the time to work out what it is - this will make it much easier to find a gift that she loves.
Opt for accessories over clothes
No matter how well you know her, unless she's mentioned that she wants a certain item of clothing, stick to accessories. Shoes, bags, scarves, jewellery, etc. are all much better choices than clothing. Don't just look in the shops for gifts for her, take a look online too. There are some amazing fashion-related gifts out there. Such as handbags with built-in phone chargers and all sorts of other amazing accessories. If you want a little inspiration, check out Cuckooland's unique gifts ideas for her. There are also plenty of other online sites where you can find inspiration; it's just a case of looking around for them.
Find cute, quirky things she'll adore
The best way to ensure that the gift you get her is loved, is to find cute, unique things that she may not have seen before. If you buy her a scarf similar to one she's already got, she might like it, but it won't be something she's super excited about. However, if you pick her something she's never see before, like fashion headphones, she's more likely to be excited about them.
If you want to pick the perfect gift for the fashion crazy girls in your life, take the above tips and tricks on board.
