Sassy Santa Gift Ideas
Holiday Shopping is Easy & Fun with Celebrity Help



Let’s get some holiday shopping ideas from celebrities with style and class, and save some cash for Santa’s budget.

It’s no surprise to see teen beauty Selena Gomez at media events sporting the fabulous looking styles from American Eagle. The popular star from the Disney Channel’s hit series The Wizards of Waverly Place has been spotted shopping at the American Eagle store in New York City.

The comfortable apparel line fits the lifestyle and image of trendy young Hollywood stars like Selena. Her favorite item seems to be the American Eagle classic white cotton crew neck tee, which is a must-have for any wardrobe. It’s a practical gift that will be appreciated, and not expensive.

For much younger fashionistas there’s the 77kids line of clothes from American Eagle Kids Clothing. And they have a wonderful collection that is popular for holiday shoppers, with seven pieces from 77kids for under $77 on The styles are wonderful, super-cool, and age appropriate too.

Now the Minnie Rose’s fashions got a big boost when pop princess Britney Spears was photographed by the paparazzi with her Minnie Rose White Cashmere Ruffled Shawl. She seemed to be using it as a security blanket, and that’s understandable. The cashmere is so huggable.

The winter styles from the Minnie Rose collection includes shawls, scarves, gloves, tops, v-neck sweaters, ruffle cardigans, dresses and even sweaters for dogs. For the wallet-conscious, Minnie rose’s cashmere makes for an elegant and effortlessly chic addition to any outfit this holiday season.

Speaking of effortless, the briefcase ladies on Deal or No Deal have help looking so gorgeous, with Key Stylist Wendi San George recommending everyone use CHI organics beauty products. There have been other celebrity stylists who have credited Farouk Systems for making their job easy with the ceramic hairstyling iron and other beauty products.

They get a lot of attention from the media, because CHI products from the Farouk Systems Group are usually at the major entertainment events. The Miss Universe organization loves them. And they were a big hit backstage at the Latin Grammys helping get all the lovely stars ready for their Grammy presentations. John Legend was among the music guys who really liked the CHI Trimmers.

Also a suggestion for the hard-to-get guys gifts, holiday shopping is a breeze for the sports enthusiasts who love ESPN. Because the ultimate sports network has introduced an array of products for sports fans, from the fun and inexpensive ESPN Jeopardy game, to an X Games MotoBike, expensive but worth it if he’s been extra nice.

“This holiday season ESPN is proud to present our most exciting gift selections, delivering to consumers the quality and innovation they have come to expect from our brand,” said Rick Alessandri, senior vice president, general manager of ESPN Consumer Products.

Striving to create products that are authentic and fun, ESPN has a wide range of items for sports fans of all ages.

ESPN and college sports fans can check out the ESPN Originals Apparel Collection of tees, polos, fleece hoodies and novelty tops found at JCPenney and The Sports Authority stores. They also carry the ESPNU Apparel Collection that allows fans to be a part of their favorite college team. A gift that’s especially great if you’re a student or an alumnus.

For the “action” sports fan there are a lot of products with the X Games brand, such as the Moto X Snow Racer; X Games Skateboards; and X Games Protective Gear. All can be found at Wal-Mart.

There’s the ESPN Sportscaster Mic, a must-have for aspiring sportscasters. The ESPN The Ultimate Remote, for all the recliner umpires out there. The X Games MotoBike is for the kid who wants to ride like X Games legend Travis Pastrana.

For the smart jocks, get ESPN Jeopardy! The game features more than 1,000 sports-themed Jeopardy answers, and players choose from dozens of interesting and challenging categories.

The real challenge is Santa’s last minute shopping spree.
