Almost as tricky to buy for as the person who has everything is ‘The Cool Girl.’ Now you’re really second-guessing! Cool Girls are the Alexa Chungs and Chloe Sevignys of the world. With their laser point accuracy re: what is hot and what is not, as the bearer of gifts you have nowhere to hide. No paltry gift cards, vanilla diffusers or boxes of chocolates for these girls. To score points, look for gifts that are a little off the beaten track, a little bit boy-ish, and if you can make her laugh as well, you’re off to a flying start.
To alleviate some of the stress, I have rounded up 10 great gift ideas for the cool girls in your life, from the very latest funny entertainment release to the perfect drink to have whilst watching it!
