Nicole Richie has been taking care of her holiday shopping over the last few weeks, and Joel Madden joined her yesterday for some last minute outings in LA. They kicked things off with a stop at the jewelry boutique Roseark, which marked Nicole's second day in a row of checking out sparkly things for sale — she stopped by XIV Karats on Monday and apparently put aside some things she liked. After working up their appetites, Nicole and Joel met up with a friend for lunch at Hugo's in West Hollywood. The Richie-Maddens have lots to be thankful for after their exciting past year, and they're set to ring in 2010 with a big bash at Lavo in Las Vegas.
