The Manic Pixie Dream Girl! We all know one, but that doesn't necessarily mean we know what to buy her for the holidays. What's the perfect gift for the free spirit who lives to inspire, dance in the rain and experience each moment with childlike wonder? Turns out that there are lots of great things. Let's have a looksy!
Manic pixie dream girls love their cute and classic Schwinn cruisers, but they also have to schlep stuff around. A backpack is out of the question (nothing messes up a whimsical look more than a JanSport) and a purse can potentially get in the way of peddling, so why not buy her, as suggested by reader cmh225, a nice and sturdy bike basket (like this L.L. Bean one for $39)? Go with wicker over wire — they're more aesthetically appealing and she'll be less likely to lose her knitting needles or paintbrushes out of the slots.
