I love holiday shopping for friends…especially BFFs! I get such a rush from finding the perfect gift. So allow me to help you shop for yours.
Kicking it old school. I am relieved to learn I am not the only person who still likes to actually write down my appointments. Putting pen to paper actually helps me to remember anyway. A datebook as chic as this one is not meant to be hidden in the recesses of her bag.
2. Bella il Fiore Paisley Ice Bag, $15
The perfect gift for that girlfriend who is known to still dance on a bar with a lampshade on her head. This cute ice bag will come in handy the next morning. That and a Bloody Mary.
This styling tool makes straightening hair with a little body a snap.
4. Oasis Dora Backpack, $58
This one isn’t for Dora the Explorer…thankfully.
5. Easy-Bake Ultimate Oven, $65.97
OK, so this is a bit of a joke. I always wanted one of these when I was a little girl and never got one! Like I was going to burn the house down by cooking with a lightbulb? I never got over it and still kinda want one!
Finally some touchscreen gloves that aren’t ugly!
7. Everlane The Slouchy Cashmere V-Neck, $128
Who doesn’t need more cashmere sweaters? Is there such a thing as too many? I think not.
8. Kenwood Major Titanium Kitchen Machine, now $799.99
If she is a chef in training, her head will pop off when you gift her this!
The perfect coffee table book and certainly less expensive than an actual pair of the iconic red-soled shoes. One size fits all!
I love this adorable pill organizer! It’s perfect for the traveler.
11. Jet Set Candy CDG Paris Luggage Tag Charm and Chain, $68 & $30 – $70
Paris! Always, Paris!
12. Marylai New York Maeve Mixtape Pouch, $108
Make her a mixed tape, just like you did in the 80’s! You can even add her name for free.
For the BFF who still has some ‘bad ass’ left in her.
14. ‘Chanel’ Perfume Bottle Cellphone Cover with Chain (For iPhones & Samsungs), $14.55 – $20.55
For the friend with expensive tastes who already has everything. Bet she doesn’t have this!
These are not only comfortable, but can be monogrammed.
