’s Gift Guide for the Gay Woman 2011


The High-Maintenance Femme


1. Bathina by Benefit. This body balm is like a shimmering lotion and fragrance wrapped up in one adorable package. Plus, it’s not a liquid, which means you can travel with it. Bathina is the perfect present for femmey friends and lovers. ($28)

2. Fabulous fascinator. Blame it on Kate Middleton’s entourage, but high-volume hair pieces are here to stay (at least for a while). Make the girly-girl in your life feel like royalty with a fascinator from Nordstrom. ($38)

3. Sexy loungewear. A high-maintenance gal wants to look her best for you all the time. Yes, even on those weekends when you’re at home watching Bravo marathons and eating Chinese take out. But, she can’t veg out if she’s got a thong up her butt and an underwire pinching the girls. This Victoria’s Secret romper is the perfect solution. It looks like lingerie, but is as cozy as old shorts and a worn-in T-shirt. ($42)

4. Rose gold watch. In case you haven’t heard, gold comes in a new color – pink! This Michael Kors watch has a chunky masculine look, but is softened by its rosy hue. A must-have accessory for power femmes. ($295)

5. Anthropologie dressing table. Nothing says true love like giving your lady a sophisticated place to primp. A dressing table will add a retro glam vibe to any space – and beats the heck out of having to share the bathroom mirror with you. I have dreams about this Cherie dressing table from Anthropologie. ($698)
