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. Continue reading
Madison Montgomery is my favorite American Horror Story: Coven witch. Girl’s got killer hair, God-given Julia Roberts features (she’s her niece) and man-slaying attitude for days. I was so deva when she was dead for five minutes. The Hollywood starlet loves beauty products of every ilk and is, essentially, so vain she thinks every song’s about her. Here’s what she wants for the holidays. Continue reading

Hanna Marin from Pretty Little Liars is the girliest of the bunch, with perpetually glossed lips and curled hair. She has a huge heart and is very protective of the ones she loves. She tends to be melodramatic, in a fun, relatable way and she always has a witty response. Continue reading
Spencer Hastings from Pretty Little Liars is the WASPy, intelligent daughter of lawyers. She likes plaid, problem solving and perfection. In fact, she doesn’t settle for anything less. The Spencer in your life is from CT, has a type A personality, and reads the New York Times every morning. Here’s what to get her. Continue reading
My brother and I have the hardest time watching Homeland because Mandy Patinkin looks EXACTLY like our father, but slightly younger. Observe. Because my dad actually has an irritating habit of standing directly in front of the television, when he materializes on-screen, it’s almost like he’s doing THAT. And it’s like, DAD, get off the TV, slash, you’re not in the CIA. Stop being the worst to Carrie. You know? Saul is nebbishy, smart, doesn’t spend a ton of time at home, so he needs creature comforts more than most and let’s be real with each other: It takes a village to manage that beard. Here’s what to get the Saul in your life (and what I’m getting for the very important Saul in mine).
Carrie Mathison has a penchant for pills (well, until she became preg), boasts an exciting CIA gig that takes her to far-flung jaunts like Tehran to rescue her small-mouthed long-time love Brody, has some brassy blonde locks (seriously, Dana Ionato needs a fictional counterpart on this show) and needs some relaxing gifts, stat. Here’s what to get the Carrie in your life. Continue reading
Every time I have sex, it’s MY choice. And if I wanted to go on some dates, I would. But I don’t. Because they’re for lesbians.- Jessa
Girls’ Jessa Johansson is the kind of girl who rocks a geisha-inspired ‘do with oxblood lips and a bathrobe inexplicably on a date with her ex-boyfriend who has a girlfriend. She’s one part hippie, two parts natural beauty and one part DGAF. She’ll get into your bath with you and then snot-rocket in there. (That’s the DGAF part.) Here’s what she’d like for the holidays. Continue reading
The Barney Stinson in your life is legend (wait for it)-ary, looks epic in a suit, bows to anything wearing a hat (“THE GENTLEMAN!”) and manages to hold down a job where he does little and gets paid a strange amount and also… one that not one of his close-knit crew understands. Barney types tend to buy themselves whatever toys they fancy, but here’s what he could use.
Barney requires a little luxury when he travels, and this luxe bag containing a shave gel, shower gel, body wash and facial wash will keep his skin in perfect, metrosexual shape.
The major loss of my generation isn’t that men currently wear more hair product than the women do. It isn’t that we have to settle for romance “curated” from months of flirty messages leading to IRL dates with a guy who forgot to mention that he’s five foot two. No. The major loss is that men like Don Draper are extinct, though I recognize he’s a complex character and a god-awful husband–but know what? He’s an actual factual MAN, the likes of which I haven’t seen in far too long. I love that Don Draper, despite the fact that he’d say that “By love [I] mean big lightning bolts to the heart, where you can’t eat and you can’t work, and you just run off and get married and make babies. The reason you haven’t felt is because it doesn’t exist. What [I] call love was invented by guys like me…to sell nylons.” He drinks his liquor neat (something brown, always), his hair game is always groomed (likely Brill Cream, a little dab’ll do ya; most likely a client of SCDP) and he looks like he smells of expensive high rise, Camel Lights and secret sex. Here’s what to get him for the holidays. Continue reading
Hannah Horvath is from New York, therefore, she is just naturally interesting. Plus, she knows it’s really liberating to say no to shit you hate, but I’d posit that she’d acknowledge that it’s also dope to say yes to shit you love. Like this shit. Continue reading
