It's no secret that we obviously love shopping here at StyleBistro. Combined with a chill in the air and holiday spirit all around the city, we're in retail heaven come Christmas time. After all, it is the most wonderful time of the year. 

Whether you're shopping for your parents, siblings, best friends, significant other or someone else important to you, there's no denying the feeling of finding the perfect gift for someone you love. But let's be real—it's not that easy. Finding the best present takes time and effort. There are a few obstacles you'll have to endure before getting to watch a face light up with joy as they open your gift.
