Unwrapped: The Best Gifts For Your Instagram Famous Friend

For the social media-obsessed among us

by Hafeezah Nazim

'Tis officially the season for gift-giving. For us, that’s a full month (31 days!) in which we’ll be providing gift ideas for everyone on your list with our Unwrapped holiday gift guides. So make your holiday shopping a breeze this season, and let us help you find gifts for all the people in your life—and maybe even a spoiled pet or two.

Shopping for someone who is well-versed in all things fashion, beauty, and culture can seem... impossible. Hell, even shopping for us, NYLON editors, can be a scary feat. But it doesn't have to be!

All to say, if your friend is, erm, Instagram famous, and you're having some difficulty finding the hottest gear to gift them, let this list be your guide. Sure, they're not designer labels, but they are definitely trendy, witty, and incredibly thoughtful. Because after all, it's the thought that counts, right? Well, that, and the likes.
