Why not let the stars guide your gift-giving this year? From chic hostess gifts to wow-factor watches, I’ll give you a peek at the products celebs are flipping for. Take a look at Tinseltown’s top gift ideas:

Scene stealer
Help your loved one literally get in on the act this season with Yoostar, a system that offers everyone a starring role in classic movie and television scenes. The perfect present for guys who can’t quote their favorite “Godfather” characters enough or girlfriends who dream of acting out a love scene with Brad Pitt. Thanks to green-screen technology, anyone can “shoot, star, and share” their Oscar-worthy performance with friends and family over social networking sites. Just be sure they don’t quit their day job! ($169.95; yoostar.com)

Posh presents
For the hostess who literally has the mostest, only the best will do. Impress her with Piper-Heidsieck and Christian Louboutin’s crystal-adorned stiletto flute, Le Rituel. With the success of her new, appropriately named single, “Louboutins,” Jennifer Lopez celebrates her own Cinderella story by sipping bubbly from this luxurious glass slipper ($500; le-rituel.com). For those who prefer slippers to party pumps, Dynasty and Ceremony’s Tea Buds will bloom into a beautiful bouquet of bliss ($10-$60; dynastyandceremony.com). And to make anyone feel like they’re enveloped in love this season, consider a fabulous faux blanket. Cute-couple Rebecca Romijn and Jerry O’Connell love to snuggle under the covers with Cozy Faux’s supersoft throws ($78-$252; cozyfaux.com).

Susan Sarandon counts on RedEnvelope for meaningful presents like the Year of Wishes Candle Set. As these colorful candles burn, they reveal tiny trinkets symbolic of positive thoughts such as joy, love, fun and adventure. From girlfriends to grandparents, this is a great gift ($70; redenvelope.com).

Or, light up their lives and ignite their sense of smell at the same time with Godiva’s new Chocolate Candles. These scrumptious items are sure to provide a fragrant flicker for any kitchen! Anna Faris and Penn Badgley are both already fans ($12.50-$22.50; dillards.com).

Tinseltown trinkets
Whether she’s been naughty or nice, La Mer’s bracelet watch is a gift she’ll be grateful for!  AnnaLynne McCord sports a black studded version, and the brand’s new diamond collection comes out just in “time” for the holidays ($75-$1,450; lamercollections.com)!

Or, give a gal more than just a pretty piece of jewelry this year — pass on a pendant with a purpose. Charlize Theron uses Dior’s Swarovski Cristal Boreal Gloss Pendant to get a pink pucker ($80; neimanmarcus.com), while Debra Messing keeps her favorite Ajne fragrance inside a Perfume Pendant ($60-$145; ajne.com). “I love it. It makes the perfect gift!” Debra said. Talk about double-duty beauty!

But the guys don’t need to feel left out! Available in 12 colors, WooLoot’s fun and festive watches are made of tourmaline, a mineral that is said to help with relaxation and rejuvenation. Active celebs who love WooLoot include Tony Hawk, Brian McKnight, Elisabeth Rohm and Chris Daughtry ($20; wooloot.com). And Gavin Rossdale shows that tough guys can still rock a cool cuff, thanks to Cynthia Dresser’s cuffs for men ($100-$200; cynthiadresser.com)

14 fun, frugal gifts
Cyber celeb faves

Gals on the go will love the boho-chic BlackBerry Bags from JJ Winters ($85-$108; revolveclothing.com). Halle Berry has room for just the essentials in her hands-free holder, but luckily Glam Noir’s embellished USB drives are a compact computer storage solution that will fit perfectly inside ($45; glamnoir.com). And a great gift for him or her, the new e-Pad Laptop Desk combines technology, convenience and comfort all at the same time. Artists like Katy Perry and Taylor Swift who have this portable workstation can easily tote it with them on tour($40; brookstone.com)!

For rising stars
Fashionistas-in-training will flip for Nintendo’s Style Savvy game, just like Dakota Fanning did! As the owner of a clothing boutique, girls must purchase inventory, monitor the store’s funds and try to please a constant stream of customers in search of the best fashions ($29.99; stylesavvyds.com). Graffeeti’s line of shoes and backpacks allows creative kids like Pax Jolie-Pitt the chance to customize their own accessories! Girls and boys can write, draw and redesign as much as they like with included dry-erasable markers ($29.99-$44.99; graffeeti.com). And think your little one is the next Beethoven or Bon Jovi? Let them test out their skills at a young age with Schoenhut’s Baby Grand Piano. Your mini music-maker is bound to have hours of entertainment with this gift ($145; saks.com)!
