15 Chic Christmas Gifts For The Fashionista Who Has (Almost) Everything

Something for everyone

Joyous as the festive season is, Christmas shopping can often pose something of a challenge—especially when it comes to the fashionistas in your life.

We’re talking about the loved ones whose personal mantra comes straight from the playbook of Carrie Bradshaw: shopping is their cardio. Perhaps the most difficult part of shopping for a chic friend or family member is the fact that they tend to buy whatever they like for themselves, and as a result, have, well, almost everything.

And while beauty gifts and foodie presents require an intimate knowledge of their tastes, there are a number of elegant items for every part of your favourite fashionista’s life that are sure to please—with minimal fuss required.

Below, marie claire lists 15 chic gifts for the girl who (almost) has it all.
