Before you know it, the season of gift giving will arrive. And though this time of year is considered to be the most joyful, it can also be stressful — especially if you're fresh out of ideas. Need a little inspiration? Consider taking a few cues from Carrie Bradshaw this season and seek out the best Sex and the City -inspired gifts for your friend who can't stop dishing out quotes from the show ("shopping is my cardio," anyone?).
It's no secret that Bradshaw became an immediate fashion icon when the series first premiered in '98. Two decades after the world was first introduced to the New York City columnist-slash-shoe-obsessive, her style influence remains as strong as ever. Think about it: The slip dresses, over-the-top tulle skirts, and crystal-embellished heels that defined Bradshaw's wardrobe in the '90s are back in a big way in 2018. That said, finding pieces with that coveted Bradshaw flair is easier than you might think.
Ahead, shop The Zoe Report's roundup of eight sure-to-be iconic Sex and the City gifts, all of which closely resemble pieces from key moments in the series. Don't worry, you won't find any fan merch here — these gifts pay homage to your favorite show in a subtle (and stylish) way. Prepare to fight the urge to gift all eight to yourself.
