Overwhelmed by your holiday shopping and still don’t know where to start?  Well lots of us are in the same boat, but this is not the case with superstar stylist and TV personality Robert Verdi who, in the role of a more sophisticated Santa, has picked some fabulous (yet mostly affordable) gifts for all his highfalutin celebrity friends (and perhaps a few acquaintances he’d like to make).  And if you know anything at all about Verdi, you know he’s not keeping quiet about all of his fun finds.    Check out this video for a great list of varied gifts and in the meantime here are a few highlights:

-For Bethenny Frankel:  Verdi knows she’s a foodie, so he chose Babycakes Cupcake Maker.  This cute little kitchen appliance cooks eight cupcakes in just five to eight minutes. Says Verdi (ooh, he can be a tad mean), “Skinny girl no more!” From JC Penney, it’s $29.99 at

-For Fergie:  Divaesque boots from Koolaburra hit all the major trends—slouchy, over-the-knee, studded.  Hot stuff.  Check out the Victoria Boot ($465) at

-For the cast of “Glee”:  Instant gratification by way of The Fujifilm Instax Mini 7S Instant Film Camera which produces color credit card- size photos of all those song and dance numbers in minutes.  $69 at
