The Frisky is serving up holiday gift guides to help you pick the perfect present for everyone on your list. Here, we’ve got 5 gifts for the tech obsessed guy in your life.
Buying presents for people you actually like is hard enough. When you’re forced to buy for someone who is undeserving of your holiday thoughtfulness (and hard-earned cash), browsing the generic gift section at Target feels like pulling teeth. But alas, we all have people on our Christmas lists who we kinda wish didn’t exist, yet we are obligated to buy gifts for anyway. Not that we endorse being passive-aggressive, but sometimes it’s necessary to make a statement to your evil granny who is fond of pointing out how much weight you’ve gained. Enjoy the worst part of your holiday shopping by gifting her with something that will leave her speechless for once. Click through for some present ideas for the people on your list who you love to hate.
There’s no doubt: the onesie pajama had a moment in 2013. Traditionally onesies have been considered sleepwear for children only, but these one-piece PJs became hip for adults this year.
Even I got swept up in onesie fever. I broke down and bought this stripped, footless one-piece from Target and it made me a believer. The whole peeing in the middle of the night thing is definitely a pain in the ass, but I’m willing to overlook that because, somehow, my onesie helps me sleep better. Seriously, they are magical.
Let’s take a look back at the onesie’s miraculous journey from reviled Christmas gift to must-have wardrobe staple.

We’ve had rain and snow for the last few days, which is why we’ve been remiss in photographing our outfits. I mean, you guys don’t want to see my frizzy hair or awkward attempts at styling Sorel boots, do you? But the sun is shining today (or was — it’s 6:30 and dark here now) and the cute clothes have come out to play!
Erykah Badu has long been one of my favorite neo soul artists, not to mention one of the most fashionable people, um, anywhere (putting aside that her influence may have led to then-boyfriend Common embracing crochet pants, but I digress). So it’s awesome to learn that Badu has been named the face of Givenchy’s latest ad campaign, in part because having a Black woman be the muse for such a high fashion brand, in an industry where they are generally wholly underrepresented, is a breath of fresh air. In fact, all of the female models used in Givenchy’s latest campaign are women of color. Givenchy designer Ricardo Tisschi told Style.com of the homogeniety in fashion:
“It’s 2013. Everybody’s being so cool about Instagram, about Facebook, any media — everybody’s being so open. At the end of the day, why are not so many black girls or Latin girls in shows? When you have an American president who is black! When I see this happening, it’s quite sad, I think. People can be so avant-garde, so advanced, but actually not, because people are still making differences between skin color.”
As for his selection of Badu, apparently he had the singer in mind for awhile, saying, “Erykah, she’s an icon—come on! … “She’s one of the most stylish women I’ve met in my life. She’s got such a good sense of proportion, of colors.” Truth. Click on through for just a small handful of Badu’s amazing fashion statements over the years… [Style.com]
Geri Halliwell sauntered into a London Christmas party wearing this fabulous outfit that I’m dying to recreate. That white shawl collar coat is divine (and Olivia Pope approved), and the hot pink (or is it radiant orchid?!?!) clutch adds a formal, festive touch to the whole ensemble. Want to steal this Spice Girl’s style for yourself? After all, it’s perfect for all sorts of holiday gatherings. Get all the shopping details after the jump!
The Frisky is serving up holiday gift guides to help you pick presents for everyone on your list. Here, we’ve got gifts for the outdoorsman (or woman).
I don’t blame you if flip-flops are one of the very last things on your mind today. I know that I am personally far more concerned with hunting down functional yet stylish all-weather boots (digression: do these exist, and if so, please point me in the right direction) and a down jacket that won’t make me look like I’ve been pumped full of air from the neck down. In fact, just this morning I wondered aloud, “Will I ever feel warmth again?” Keep reading »
Hey girl. Bad news. Your heavily decal-ed, excessively red-and-green, badly doodled nail art is ruining Christmas. Not to be a Scrooge, but that melty-faced Santa on your thumb might as well be a lump of coal in my stocking. I’m all for getting in the holiday spirit and if you’re headed to an Ugly Christmas Sweater Party, by all means, do your nails up to match — but don’t you dare fool yourself into thinking these 30 manicures are anything but ho-ho-ho-horrrrrible.
