Gift Guide: Gatsby Girl

Everyone knows somebody who shut themselves in a darkened room for a day after Baz Luhrmann's The Great Gatsby reboot had its release date unceremoniously pushed to summer 2013. And if you don't, that person is probably you.

Click through for a plethora of presents perfect for your closest Gatsby-obsessed pal. If nothing else, they'll help soothe the burn as she rewatches the Robert Redford / Mia Farrow version for the bazillionth time and thumbs through her tattered Fitzgerald paperback.
