Holiday Gift Guide: Haley And Alex Dunphy of ‘Modern Family’ Edition

BBJ 2009 holiday.jpg



Here, some items that are great for the gal who has everything makeup-related, like the Haley Dunphy in your life, or for the gal who maybe has yet to acquire the beauty basics, for the Alex Dunphy in your life. Remember this epic exchange between the two after their dad described the iPad as “a movie theater, library and a music store all rolled in to one… awesome pad?”

Alex [to Haley]: A library is a place where people get books
Haley [to Alex]: A movie theater is a place where people go on dates.

Two very different ladies; both would be able to use the hell out of these gifts.

I’ve ALWAYS loathed the whole birthstone thing, maybe because mine (June’s) is a PEARL in the midst of everyone else’s sparkly, glittery faceted precious (or at least semi-precious) stones. I mean, my name is Amber, another unsparkly stone and my birthstone ALSO has to be a flat, creamy, albeit pretty rock? What does a gal have to do to get a gem? So I’m loving this $40 gift box from Julep, which includes 12 polishes and a gorgeous, golden goddess hue for June of which my inner Russian approves. I’d posit the Dunphy gals would appreciate this set, as well.
