1. A GIFT PACK OF BATH BOMBS
Whether you’re buying a gift for your Secret Santa or somebody in the office, bath bombs are always a good idea. Essentially, it’s giving relaxation and bliss to your bestie. (Can I get one of these gift sets, too?)
Odds are, she’s just as stressed as you about the holidays and finding the perfect presents for everyone on her list. Taking a second to chill at the end of the day with these bath bombs will make facing the crowds at the mall so much better.
2. A BEAUTY BOX OF ESSENTIAL PRODUCTS
If you’re shopping for someone who’s obsessed with all things related to makeup, then a box of essential products is a must. Simply head over to Target, pick up a set, and leave behind your worries about the price tag.
This set includes a makeup brush, body scrub, and highlighter, on top of items from your bestie’s favorite brands. Buying makeup for someone else can be tricky, but this beauty box has you covered like the best concealer in the game.
3. A COLORFUL LIP SMACKER CALENDAR
Growing up, some of us had a serious obsession with Lip Smacker. While your mom roamed the aisles, looking for vitamins and shampoo, you gazed at the colorful chapstick containers, labeled “Vanilla Bean” or “Watermelon.” You likely threw a couple in the cart, and then unwrapped a bunch more in your stocking around the holidays. Sweet!
As an adult, the obsession is still real, and that’s why this calendar would make the perfect gift. Every day, for 12 days, your bestie can open up a new product from this beloved brand.
4. A SUPER CUTE MINI WAFFLE MAKER
What’s better: breakfast food or mini-sized things? Well, thanks to this waffle maker from Urban Outfitters, you don’t have to choose — or worry about finding a good gift for your bestie.
Together, you two have brunched a lot. You have your favorite local spots for pancakes and home fries, and sometimes recreate these meals at home. So, for the holidays this year, give the gift of breakfast food. Then, keep up with that sweet tradition of catching up over waffles and syrup on Saturday mornings.
5. A SET OF GORGEOUS RINGS
You’d love to give your bestie something sparkly for the holidays, but oftentimes, those items come with quite the price tag. Don’t fret! If you’re looking for something with a little glitz and glam, this set of rings from Anthropologie is the perfect addition to any outfit, and is affordable AF.
6. A SET OF PRETTY NOTEBOOKS
One of my go-to gifts every year is a set of notebooks. They’re simple, inexpensive, and thoughtful — which is exactly what you’re looking for in your own gifts.
Truth is, a lot of my besties love to write or jot down their creative ideas. Sometimes, a planner isn’t the best place for this, so having a set of blank pages to work in is much better. Pair this gift with a cute set of pencils or pens, put it in a festive gift bag, and add a bow. Just like that, you have a whole lot of bang for your buck.
7. A JAR OF PINK HIMALAYAN BATH SALTS
Next to bath bombs, bath salts are the best gift for the girl who needs some rest and relaxation. They add a layer of luxury to hanging in your tub, and the sweet aroma of rose petals or lavender to the air. Right about now, who doesn’t need that kind of experience?
This jar of bath salts from World Market will get you lots of bang for your buck. Don’t think about it twice, and give your bestie the spa treatment for months to come.
