Who can’t appreciate the Claire Dunphy in your life? She’s a bit of a helicopter mom, a Type-A yogi who’s wildly efficient, if a little baby bit controlling. She appreciates beauty, a little pampering time and looking fly. Here’s what to get her for the holidays.


honey-hush_800Smith & Cult Nailed Lacquer in Honey Hush (Her husband is not to take the name as a hint.) Started by the founder of Hard Candy, this polish range retains all the groundbreaking glamour (and pigment) of Claire’s favorite pastel polishes of yore, back in a modern incarnation including pastels (of course) but also rich maroons, reds and sexy sparkle iterations. $18 each at

LIMITED-EDITION_TIMELESS-RADIANCE_438x438La Prairie Timeless Radiance The Golden Touch Limited Edition Set Claire strikes me as a gal who takes her skin care seriously (and has the face to prove it) so investing in a big-ticket set that’ll keep her looking smooth and luminous for months is likely her strategy. This special set from La Prairie boasts a Cellular Radiance Cream, Eye Cream (let it be known that La Prairie makes the very BEST eye cream) and the piece de resistance, Cellular Radiance Concentrate Pure Gold. The latter is a gold-infused revitalizing serum for gleamy peau. $880 at


Guerlain A Night At The Opera Set Pictured above is most of the Guerlain 2014 holiday offerings (all gorgeous), along with my vintage lucite clutch that proved to be the very best investment I’ve made in a while. The Night At The Opera Set includes the Coque d’Or perfumed powder and the red-encased lipstick next to it; $95 at
