Great Gifts for All the Gals on Your List : From Your Boss to Your Mother-in-Law

Style Expert, Sarah Shirley, Offers Advice on Useful and Economical Gifts

For Every Lady on Your List

You may not be Santa, but would you really trust an old man to pick out gifts for all the important women in your life? No offense, Santa. However, when it comes to shopping for all the ladies in your life, from your boss to your mother-in-law, you have to admit being a bit befuddled yourself, when it comes to creative ideas.

This year, style expert Sarah Shirley will help guide you in making all the right choices for all the gals on your shopping list, without spending excess cash or scrambling at the last minute. She’ll talk about where you can save, and when you might want to splurge. Sarah will help you pinpoint the most appropriate gift for every gal on your list. Her ideas will include:

• Gifts that do double-duty; many women keep a hair band around their wrist for moments when their mane gets unruly or in the way. Sarah will talk about great stocking-stuffers that are stylish and also useful in keeping tresses tame.

• Form and function: You know many women who tuck products into any pouch that will accommodate them and then end up searching and searching their bottomless handbags to find what they’re looking for. Sarah will talk about a beautiful clutch (a worthy splurge) created specifically to carry little things that fall to the bottom of a big bag, but fashionable enough to stand on its own.

• Color them happy: You couldn’t possibly choose the perfect shade of lipstick or a signature scent for everyone on your list, so why not get them a sampler. Sarah will tell us about the best value and quality out there.

• Reviving a lost art: With the proliferation of email and texting, writing has fallen by the wayside. Gone but not forgotten. Sarah will offer a great gift idea for a colleague, boss or family member.
