VOGUE – Social Shopper

Vogue — December 19, 2011

ab2df1a8359d7da35101c8b16efda9f7At this stage in the holiday shopping game, most children have submitted their own incredibly detailed, incredibly lengthy, and often incredibly hilarious wish lists (my own six-year-old daughter’s runs the gamut from high heels to Justin Bieber: Under the Mistletoe). But chasing down her requests on the Internet turned up a number of discoveries that had me longing to be a kid all over again so that I could open these amazing things for myself! (See how Gisele Bündchen is all too eager to hang onto stepson Jack’s toy swords in this shot from bauergriffin.com). In that spirit, from J.Crew’s silver glittery boots to artist Nick Cave’s colorful punching bags to the ultimate Jamis bicycle, this week we round up a host of gift ideas that are sure to please both children and parents alike.
