For Her Pleasure

Get out the plastic and hope for the best: It’s time to shop for your girls.

Mommy Dearest
Show her how much she means to you with something that’s uniquely hers. She’ll treasure an updated Pade Vavra crown locket from Petulia’s Folly for years to come, just like she’s treasured you.

rub it in!

Best Friend
She’s been there for you through thick and thin (literally). You’re practically joined at the hip, so treat the both of you with Rescue Rittenhouse Spa’s Two by Two massage followed by side-by-side mani/pedis.

Twisted Sister
True, she’s stolen and destroyed everything you loved. So give her something of her own (that perhaps you can sneak off with later). Grasshopper has the Grey Ant jeans, Carmelita Couture, and rare dead stock eyewear you’ll want to beg, steal, and borrow from each other.


The Beauty Queen
Your girl won’t show her face unless she’s ready for her close-up. Bluemercury has a variety of haute stocking stuffers from Creed’s Love in Black to Fresh’s black tea mask. Head to Art in the Age for goods like CB I Hate Perfume and indie apothecary items that will make her vanity the most exclusive in town.

light up!

The Drama Queen
We all have a great pal who’s wound tighter than an obsessive compulsive’s wristwatch. Head to Bruges Home for all-natural Archipelago candles in delirium-inducing scents like bamboo teak, bergamot and tobacco, and burlwood to help her relax. Soothe her senses with C.O. Bigelow’s Mentha kit (Plaza, King of Prussia Mall, 610-337-2980). You may be tempted to pick up something for yourself.

They really are nice racks.
