But Kim Johnson Gross, author of the Chic Simple book series and of the Web site Ask Kim on America Online, visited The Early Show Co-Anchor Jane Clayson to share some advice on picking out gifts online for women.
"It's not as difficult as it looks," Gross says. "I chose a lot of things to illustrate it."

She calls bluefly.com "every bargain hunter's paradise."
"Everything is discounted - major brands like Calvin Klein and Prada, which is fantastic," she says. "But there's not a lot of depth. If you see what you like, buy it quickly." For example, a reversible wrap that costs $125 fits small, medium and large sizes. And a beautiful velvet scarf ($135) fits anyone.
Also at bluefly, there's a reversible jacket in fashionable light blue that has polar fleece on the inside. The arms zip off so it's also a vest.

At brooksbrothers.com, find a red silk jacket that reverses to polar fleece ($248). It has a boxy fit that is right for a variety of body frames. The site also offers a black cashmere sleeveless turtleneck ($110), among other things.

Gross also showed "two great outfits" from eddiebauer.com, with the easy fit that Eddie Bauer is known for.
And, of course, you can rarely miss with a cool treat like ice cream. At Gross' own Web site, firstname.lastname@example.org, you'll find an ice cream cooler that will keep your frozen treat from melting away too fast.
