Holiday Gift Guide: The Mindy Project's Mindy Lahiri Edition

BBJ 2009 holiday.jpg

mindyI can’t say it better than Julia did last holiday season. Mindy Lahiri is a rom-com/reality TV obsessed OBGYN who loves sparkles. As the ideal best friend, she is always down for fro-yo and gossip. The Mindy in your life is single (sometimes), confident (most the time) and fun (always). She rocks a full face of makeup, even in scrubs or sweats, not because she thinks she has to but because she wants to. She’s reason that songs like Independent Woman ( and kick-ass girl groups like Destiny’s Child) exist. Here’s what to gift her for holiday.

Bauble Bar Play By Ear Gift Set

Fresh Sugar Cravings Kissing Trio

Are any of these striking your fancy? Spill it in the comments.
