The Gifted Girl Cousin

In my family, we have ten cousins. Girls outweigh the boys nine to three. So when it comes to gifts for female cousins, I hope you will consider me somewhat of an expert.

Since few of us live in the same city, we rely on jet planes to see each other at the holidays. And since it seems like nine out of ten suitcases are black rollers, it's a good idea to personalize yours so Joe Schmo doesn't walk out with your loot. Dish out these sassy luggage tags ($10) to your peeps. With sayings like, "I'm pretty sure this isn't your bag" and "open with caution: dirty clothes inside," you can bet nobody will want to mess with your bag, or you!

Who doesn't love cute pajamas that make you feel festive? J. Crew has some ($45) that are so cute you could almost wear them with a skirt and a sweater for a fashion forward look. Though I'd play it safe and stay cozy in the house.

If you have a cousin who prefers watching movies on Saturday night, surprise her with a year subscription to Netflix ($60). Start with the basic plan and if she likes it, she can up the plan for just a few dollars a month.

For that cousin you introduce as your sister, not your cousin, spoil her rotten with the Canon Digital Elph ($172). You may live 2,000 miles apart but you can stay in touch by emailing pictures of each other back and forth.
