The gift-giving season is upon us, and finding that perfect present can be tough. “It’s pretty stressful!” empathizes Rachel Zoe. “I have made the mistake of going on a free-for-all, and it’s hideous because I end up buying all the wrong things for the wrong people!” Zoe told InStyle.com at New York’ Piperlime store, where was styling holiday looks. But all hope is not lost! Zoe gave InStyle.com her three tips for full-proof gift giving.

1. “Make a list of who you are buying for and write ideas of what you might get this person so that you’re focused,” she advises. “It’s like going to the supermarket—know what you’re going for.”

2. For the people who seem to have it all, go for gifts for the home. “I don’t think you can go wrong with trinkets and candles. Things like that are always a sure thing.

3. And if you’re struggling to find that perfect present that will impress your in-laws her advice is simple:“Picture frames, especially with pictures of grandchildren,” Zoe says. “In-laws love picture frames!”
