If I Were Martha Stewart, These 8 Presents Would Already Be In My Gift Closet
November 18, 2011
They’re one size fits all.
The holidays can be really tricky. Sometimes it feels like every day is filled with booby traps: who’s going to give you what and when. Is there a worse feeling than being presented with a gift when you’re empty-handed and completely off guard? In truth, probably, yes, but it’s pretty damn mortifying in the moment, when you have to stall, and say, “Oh, yours is coming!” even though you have no idea what you’re going to get them. Eek.
Avoid all that ruckuss: make like Martha Stewart, who actually keeps a gift closet to avoid silly things like that. If you present Martha with a gift, you’d betta believe you’re getting one right back.
These are one-size-fits all holiday gifts for her. Which means: none of them require anyone to ask the other what their size is, and that every single woman we know would love all of them. Done and done. Oh, and guys? You should take note, too.
