“I have made the mistake of going on a free-for-all, and it’s hideous because I end up buying all the wrong things for the wrong people!” Zoe told InStyle.com at New York’ Piperlime store, where was styling holiday looks.

1. “Make a list of who you are buying for and write ideas of what you might get this person so that you’re focused,” she advises. “It’s like going to the supermarket—know what you’re going for.”
2. For the people who seem to have it all, go for gifts for the home. “I don’t think you can go wrong with trinkets and candles. Things like that are always a sure thing.”
