By Kerala Woods I’m always on the hunt for the perfect gift this time of year. In my extensive
holiday shopping research over many Christmases spent circling malls for "the one", I’ve distilled my criteria down to a three-part formula. Consider it my gift to you.
1. Be a classic. Whether it’s 
 style is sexy, casual or edgy, the perfect gift must be an item that you can see your BFF using (or falling in love with) over and over again. A multi-purpose item that you can add to their lives and not worry that they’ll grow tired of it just a few weeks down the line.
