the margot tenenbaum gift guide
because you dont want to be secretly in love with these gifts
Ready or not, here it comes! Holiday season has arrived, and that means tons of shopping. But let's be real: your average gift guides are boring, so we're going to do things the NYLON way with lists inspired by our fictional dream BFFs. Every week we'll be picking the best gifts for our movie muses, so keep checking back to find that perfect item for your friend...or for yourself.
There's a lot to love about the dysfunctional family living at 111 Archer Avenue, from Richie's earnestness to Etheline's pastel suits, but the most intriguing Tenenbam to us has always been Margot. Sure, she had the most perfect blonde bob and collection of polo dresses, loafers, and fur coats--not to mention a Birkin bag--but the thing about Margot we always liked was her free, outsider spirit. From her first marriage in Jamaica to her rive gauche period in Paris to making out with a punk on the Tan Line Bus, she's always lived by her own rules. And even if her backstory sounds like the opening of an E! True Hollywood Story, Margot's not just a party girl. She's also a bookish playwright with a very proper facade.
So if you enjoy a good gin and tonic, have found your own Richie to be secretly in love with, and dream of writing a Levinsons in the Trees-style play--or you know someone who does--you don't want to miss our Margot Tenenbaum-inspired Gift Guide. Or maybe you really like monogrammed items and leather loafers, we've got that too.
