For Your Super Stylish BFF

Francois et Moi / Via

She always knows about every trend way the hell before you do. Wow her with some Shibori dyed napkins and if she points out any imperfection you can just tell her it's "avant garde like Comme des Garcons, duh."

For Your Sister, the Perpetual Entertainer

Wit & Whistle / Via

Just another Wednesday book club wine and cheese night with her 25 closest friends. You couldn't even pull that many people together if you invited your landlady and the creepy old guy from the corner bodega. At least you can help keep her cheese plate organized...

For Your Ex-Roommate

Two Twenty One / Via

Judging by that giant rock on her finger she still appreciates someone else paying for the finer things in life, so there's no need to tell homegirl that this gold came straight from Home Depot.


For Your Vintage Loving Neighbor

Kollabora / Via

Her apartment is a mish mash of things picked up from flea markets, estate sales, ex-roommates and ex-boyfriends. Add to the chaos with a set of teeny little plants housed in vintage tea cups. Rest assured they'll fit in perfectly with....something.

For the Host You Don't Know
