Every fashionista gets a thrill from leafing through pages of fashion tips, pics and stories in Vogue, Elle and the like.

So for the holidays, rather than a pair of socks with a little personality, give your stylish loved one a book that aims to inspire creativity!

We're sure there's a niece out there who would appreciate Patti Smith's coming-of-age tale, a kooky aunt who would really dig Isabella Blow's hat collection or maybe even a design student ready to make WWD's "100 Years, 100 Designers" her fashion bible.

Of course, feel free to be a little selfish and indulge in a coffee-table stunner like "Cecil Beaton: The Art of the Scrapbook" or throw "Let's Bring Back" into your ladylike handbag next time you're about to hit the town. These enlightening reads (and looks!) will top the wish lists of only the most stylish, including your own!
