2011 Holiday Gift Guide: Gifts For Her
Avoid pulling a “You” again this year by getting her a gift she’ll love, use, wear, or drink booze with!

lichStyle Comic Portrait ($150-$400+)
You choose the photo (of her, of you, or ideally of the both of you), size (ranging from 13×13 inches to 42×52 inches), paper quality, and whether or not you want it framed. The outcome will either be an amazing gift she’ll proudly display in her home … or a total disaster. So consult one of her friends for final picture approval before ordering. You’ll also need to decide whether adding text is a good idea: Write something over-the-top cheesy, it’s ruined. Write something unfunny, it’s ruined. Write something too serious, it’s ruined. See where this is headed? What we’re saying is, put thought into this gift (we know, we’re sorry), and it’ll be an insanely popular home run. Don’t put thought into it, and it may very well bomb.
Betsey Johnson “Velour and Satin” Robe ($90)
She’ll appreciate this comfortable, quirky-cute velour and satin robe with a ruffle shawl collar from designer Betsey Johnson. It’s stylish, sexy, and way less pervy than most guy-chosen robes. Plus, it’s basically like buying her a present that turns her into a present for you to open.
