We all have that one friend. You know — they're always dressing for the job they want, not the job they have. Their Halloween parties are basically religious experiences. They aren't afraid to paint a room the same shade as Gwen Stefani's hair circa 1999. So when it comes to the holidays, it isn't easy to find them gifts they'll actually love. So we've done our best to find statement-making accessories, that mostly come with affordable price tags.
