Shopping for the trendiest person on your list can be a daunting task. Sure, you can take the safe route and snag a dainty necklace or black leather booties. But, if you want to really impress them, give them an item that already has the fashion crowd's stamp of approval. Good news: TZR found the gifts that fashion girls have on their wishlist this year. No matter your budget, there's a chic piece that the receiver will obsess over.
"This year has definitely taught me to be more grateful for the little things and that includes the special socks, hoops, and scarves that pull an outfit together," Michelle Li, Teen Vogue's fashion and beauty editor, tells TZR. She wants to invest in high quality, but quirky products that will last her far beyond quarantine. "It gives me something to look forward to while still adding that new, in-the-moment special feeling as well."
For Los Angeles-based podcast host and trendsetter Olivia Perez, this year is all about giving back and supporting small businesses. "Whether it’s a gift that supports a Black-owned business, a local artisan, or from a company that is using their platform to donate a portion of sales to initiatives they’re passionate about, I’m hopeful that we can all use this holiday season to show support for businesses that need it right now," she says.
Though they may be known for their sense of fashion, many influencers also have home decor high on their list this year. "I have spent more time at home than ever before, which has allowed me to create a space I love," Taylr Anne Castro tells TZR. "It has been really fun searching for new pieces to make my home feel unique." A vase, luxe pillow, or cool sculpture will all be stylish additions to her space.
