Finding the perfect present it a difficult task, but fashion stylist Jenn Falik has a trick to help make shopping simpler. She says take a cue from Hollywood and pick presents to help everyone on your list channel their favorite celeb's style. "We are a celeb-obsessed culture and while it can be annoying at times, it can make shopping for presents easier," Jenn says.

Jenn ( jennfalik.com suggests these A-list inspired gift ideas to help jump start your holiday season:

Blake Lively- She is fast becoming a style icon, and seems to always be seen donning the most in-demand "It Bag" styles on her arm. Bags are such great gifts since sizing is never an issue- and this one from Old Navy is super affordable and versatile.

  • Old Navy Patent Roll Over Clutch- $19.50 at Old Navy stores.

  • The sleek style and shimmering finish make this bag a stand-out, and something that would fit in perfectly with both Blake & her character's Serena edgy but polished look.

    Julia Roberts- She loves to accessorize even her most simple outfit with a scarf- her fave brand is Sir Alistair Rai. Great as gifts since they are one-size-fits all, scarves are fun add-ons to add depth to everything from a basic black dress to a white t-shirt and jeans.

  • Sir Alistair Rai Scarf- $150 at siralistairrai.com

  • These scarves have been seen around the neck of every celeb, and for good reason- they look good! But, not only are these great around the neck- they can also be tied up into night-out halter tops or beachside sarongs if you are lucky enough to get away to the beach.

    Hayden Panettiere- Sure, she is young- but she has a very polished sense of style. One of her essentials is a basic trench coat- and her personal go-to trench is from The Limited.

  • Limited Trench Coat- $138 at Limited stores and thelimited.com

  • The style is timeless, and the price is right. This is perfect for so many occasions- from running errands to a night out on the town. It is one piece that every woman should own.

    Kelly Ripa- Her shoe closet is legendary- and she is sporting sky high stilettos daily, often in her style of choice- a peep toe. If someone on your list loves with style, take a peek inside their closet to confirm their shoe size (or find a clever way to ask!) and then pick up a pair of fun, flirty heels.

  • Aldo Pelayo Heels- $80 at Aldo stores and aldoshoes.com

  • Colorful and so sexy on the foot, these are a great gift because the fun pink hue is that shade that every girl craves, but often never think to treat themselves to.

    Kate Bosworth LOVES Molton Brown products, especially their bath and shower gels. If you know someone who admires her cool, relaxed style- they will likely love to kick back and chill out the way she does- with a long, tranquil fragrant bath.

  • Molton Brown enchant gift set- $60, available at moltonbrown.com

  • For him or for her: this is the gift for those who like to pick and choose. From oriental hanaleni orchid to South Chinese yuan zhi.
