If I Were Martha Stewart, These 8 Presents Would Already Be In My Gift Closet

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.

From left to right:

1. Chanel 3-book set

Where else can you own something that’s Chanel for under $75?

2. Tom Ford Violet Blonde fragrance

New and limited-edition, it’s sure to sell out soon.

3. Ray-Ban cat eye sunglasses

THE new silhouette of the year. Give them to your aviator-loving pal.

4. Harajaku for Tweezerman

Plucking never looked like such fun.

5. Sugar Bowl Candle from Shopbop’s Gift Boutique

So pretty, you don’t even have to wrap it. Just tie on a big bow.

6. Retro Phone Handset, in Gold (from Gwyneth Paltrow’s Fave Things list)

All the celebs are doing it! Attach these to your iPhone.

7. Cook’s Books (also from Gwyneth Paltrow’s Fave Things list)

She’ll want to collect them all.

8. Naughty notebook (from Shopbop’s Gift Boutique)

A little tongue in chic pressie for your flirtiest pal.
