The pressure is on. The next few months are filled with lots of gift-giving moments and the question always is: What to buy? So WWDScoop asked the stores for their tips and here they are, from Christian Louboutin’s aptly named Bling Bling silver pump to a diamond pendant only slightly smaller than a mouse pad. What could be more romantic than bubbly in a Viktor & Rolf bottle? Maybe Killian’s seductive scents? Still not sure?
