Buying for friends and family is so tricky. Not only do all the people you know have different tastes, but some of them have expensive tastes. And with the holidays just around the corner, you might as well prepare your bank account for complete annihilation — unless you stick to only buying all the fashionable clothes you can find on Amazon.
That one flashy aunt you only see once a year? She's going to love the faux fur stole on this list — it'll keep her neck, and all that gaudy jewelry she wears from getting cold when temperatures dip low. Or if your kids are the most difficult creatures on Earth? Just whip out the tie dye bathrobe I've included. Even looking at it is making me want to take a shower, and I'm not a water person.

These Vintage Sunglasses That Everybody Should OwnThese vintage-looking sunglasses that come in 21 colors should be on any lady's holiday list.
