Best Fashion Gift Under $5: Give A Real-life Virtual Closet As A Gift

Give the fashionable women in your life a gift they will love: a real-life virtual closet. If they’ve ever seen the movie Clueless, they’ve probably fantasized about having their real-life wardrobe digitized, just like Cher in the film. Stylebook, the closet management app, brings that fantasy to life. The app, available for iPhone or iPad, is a virtual closet for their real clothes, with a place to save photos of their wardrobe, an outfit editor to collage outfit ideas, a packing list, a calendar to plan their outfits, statistics on how they wear their clothes, and more. It’s like a fashion gift from the future! See a full list of app features here.

You can send the app directly to their phone from the App Store or you can try our creative DIY ornament to give them a cute gift with instructions on how they can redeem Stylebook in the App Store later. Stylebook is the perfect gift when you need an inexpensive small present that will impress. It’s great for stocking stuffers, grab bag gifts, Secret Santa, party favors, a creative last-minute gift - or just a little something extra to add to a larger gift.

When you know a fashionista that has it all, give them a way to keep track of it!
