By Erin Donnelly

onlineshopping2Ugh. Is there anything more torturous than rising from your turkey coma to fight the crowds at the local mall during the Black Friday melee? We think not. And with so many fantastic online shops available, why put yourself through the trauma? We say sleep in, let everyone argue over parking spaces and discounted sweaters, and knock out your holiday shopping in minutes from the comfort of your own computer. And while you’re at it, why not support these fabulous female designers? Let’s hear it for some girl power gift-buying!

Laura Dawson: If you can’t afford a trip to London to hit up this expat’s wares in person, check out her online shop, which features holiday party-perfect sequin frocks and statement coats. (shown)lauradawson

Satya Jewelry: Yoga-inspired jewelry that won’t break a sweat—or the bank? Yes, please! Mom and your sisters will love these delicate, very Zen chain necklaces and stacked bangles. For a philanthropic twist, pick up something from the EB Charity Collection, designed in collaboration with Courteney Cox and David Arquette.
