Things she needs are great. But things she wants are even better.

 



1. The concept for the “6 Packs/9 Lives” calendar is pretty simple: Hot guys and cute cats make every month that much better. Proceeds from the calendar benefit the Found Animals Foundation, an L.A.-based nonprofit that works to decrease animal shelter euthanasia. Without further ado, please meet Mr. December. $14, www.foundanimals.org

 



2. LUSH’s “Brrrrilliant” box includes grapefruit-kissed Snow Globe soap and Australian Igloo sugar scrub to instantly warm up the chilly mornings ahead. And, um, did we mention it’s perfectly wrapped? $13, www.lush.com

 



3. People have very personal, very strong, very loud views about Ugg boots. But the brand’s classic duffle — made of rugged waxed canvas and finished off with rustic brass hardware — is a definite crowd-pleaser. $345, www.uggaustralia.com

 



4. We love these Diane von Furstenberg “Zoe” shades for snowy mornings and sunny shores alike. $165, www.dvf.com

 



5. Give her a little something to look forward to with Crabtree & Evelyn’s “shed bag,” which comes complete with veggie-printed gardening tools and pampering potions for the greenest of thumbs. $48, www.crabtree-evelyn.com



6. There’s no shortage of blonde starlets hawking fragrances this time of year — and not all of them are girls you’d want to smell like. Our vote is for Taylor Swift’s Wonderstruck, a subtle fruity scent that’s almost as pretty as its bottle. $60 (3.4 oz.), at Macy’s stores



7. Even if she doesn’t usually wear perfume, Viva La Juicy’s flirty little bottle has an irresistible Paris-after-hours appeal. $98 (3.4 oz.), at Macy’s stores



8. Big bulky terrycloth robes are for your mom. Betsey Johnson’s adorable little velour and satin robe definitely isn’t. $89, at Bloomingdale’s stores and www.betseyjohnson.com



9. These Converse high-tops are still classics, but a little extra special — just like her. $100, www.converse.com



10. At less than $30, Rubr watches make a trendy stocking stuffer for almost anyone. $25, www.rubrwatchnation.com



11. Soap & Glory’s cheeky “Do a Bubble Take” gift set has all the makings for a perfectly decadent bubble bath. Minus — hint, hint — a bottle of bubbly. $36, www.sephora.com



12. Keep your snowbunny warm with Restoration Hardware’s so-soft faux-fur booties and ushanka hat. $19 (booties), $39 (hat), www.restorationhardware.com
