the clueless gift guide

what to get for an irl cher and dionne.

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. 

Okay, so you're probably going, is this the best holiday gift guide or what? Because anything inspired by Cher Horowitz and Dionne Davenport, the BFFs in Clueless, is guaranteed to be insanely stylish. But just like the duo, who became besties because, as Cher explains, "We both know what it's like to have people be jealous of us," there's more to them than just designer threads and impeccable closets. They look out for their friends, take care of their men (or, in Cher's instance, her dad), and help the poor--or at least, all the grumpy teachers out there. They might put a new pair of Alaia shoes high up on their holiday wishlist, but that doesn't mean they're above chilling on the couch, eating gummies, and catching up on old episodes of Ren & Stimpy (after all, they're way existential).

If you relish a trip to the mall as much as an afternoon watching TV--or know a friend who does--then you'll be waaay into our Cher and Dionne-inspired gift guide. Click through all our picks and prepare to start some serious negotiations with daddy about why you deserve it all.
