Holiday Gift Guide: Best Friend/ Sister

Girls, girls, girls! I can credit my best friends for their undying support with whatever I do and always being there, despite coming to them with the same exact problem 101 times. What better time than the holidays to remind my best friends how much they mean to me?

PS I won’t tell anyone if you use this as your personal wish-list inspo 😉

Makeup Sets

You can’t go wrong with makeup sets- your “giftee” will get a little bit of everything and you can usually get a good deal. These are some of my favorite makeup gift sets for under $30:

I think one of the best gifts I have ever received was a bottle of “Mon Paris” by Yves Saint Laurent from my mom. I can’t be alone when I say I am so indecisive when it comes to perfumes so this gift took the leg work out of it. If you want to give this gift but don’t feel comfortable making that big of a decision, this should do the trick! Only $25.

Health is IN, so take advantage of that with this super cute affordable set from Sephora which includes some trendy brands (i.e. HUM) and adorable packaging. Takes the stress out of gifting and wrapping. Thank me later.

Accessories

Diamonds are a girls best friend, but so are inexpensive statement earrings and fun belts. Picking up what I’m putting down? You don’t need to spend a fortune to deck out your friend in this season’s cutest accessories. 

$16 Statement Earrings

$8 Headband

Screen Shot 2018-12-17 at 6.46.50 PMYEAH. THAT IS RIGHT, BABY!!!!! My first “merch” piece is ready FOR SALE! And I am so proud of it. My little baby. It is plated in 14k gold, hangs PERFECTLY around your neck, and SO FUN TO STACK. EEP!!! If you get one you NEED to send me pictures of how you style it. Since the day I got it in the mail I have been wearing it nonstop. The quality is so amazing and it makes me SO darn happy I finally get to share something I worked on with you guys!!

This bag is the perfect cross between function and timeless beauty. Ted Baker bags are iconic and this tote is a steal (especially for its size).

A perfect blend of “statement” and “everyday” thanks to the blend of fur/cheetah and neutrals. You really can’t go wrong with this bag. And your best friend will drool over it.

 

Wildflower Phone Cases

This is a cute & fun gift to deck your friends out (and doesn’t hurt that the Carlson girls are the coolest people to grace this planet).

Room Decor

Screen Shot 2018-11-26 at 4.40.44 PM.png$69 Rosé Pillow

I know we all have a rosé-loving best friend somewhere out there. This pillow will be very loved if you give it the right home (but then again, who wouldn’t love this?)

$29 Polaroid Picture Frame

Screen Shot 2018-11-26 at 4.44.32 PMSnap a few polaroid pics of you and your bestie and throw them in this frame for an adorable personalized gift. She will treasure it forever and the memories will double as amazing room decor!

 

 

 

Books

Screen Shot 2018-11-26 at 4.50.13 PM$65 Matcha Set

If you have any Matcha loving friends, this is the PERFECT set. It comes with a book, whisk, and shaker, and any bff with a “green thumb” will die over this. Also doesn’t hurt that this trio is very Instagram-friendly.

 

$30 Chrissy Tegan Cookbook (2)

Screen Shot 2018-11-26 at 5.08.42 PMComing from someone who has tried a few recipes from this book (felt like I died and went to heaven), I can promise you that not only is the food UNREAL, but Tegan’s sense of humor and her laid back tone makes this not only a fantastic cookbook but a fun read. Definitely would recommend for your friend who is a huge Tegan fan and/or loves cooking!

Although Bagatiba is on the pricier side, the quality is unmatched on fast fashion sites (and Bagatiba is sustainably sourced and made!) These earrings will live with your bestie for the rest of her life and they are truly STUNNING.

Screen Shot 2018-11-26 at 5.19.19 PM.png$98 Perfect Puffer

You can’t go wrong with a killer puffer jacket this season, especially this one from Free People. Love the color and the fit. Whether getting this for your best friend or putting it on your wish list, you will be enjoying this winter in style!

Aren’t in the position to spend money but still want to treat your bestie? Here are some ideas which will leave your friend speechless without spending a penny. (Just make sure you actually follow through…)

Cook her your favorite meal.

Dining out with my friends has got to be one of my favorite pass-times, but sometimes staying in and making the meal yourself can be even more fun. Promise your bestie a meal cooked by yours truly for a fun girls-night-in on a budget.

Road trip to your favorite spot.

Take your bestie to a spot that has always been super meaningful to you and show them around! Whether it is a town you used to vacation to (if it’s in driving distance), a certain park, or secret area of your own town, I think this is not only a fun pass time but also a really great way to get even closer to your best friend. If I did this, I would bring my friends to my mom’s hometown, Bay Head, where I used to spend a few weeks out of my summers!

 

And that is a WRAP folks!! Christmas is just around the corner so I would order these goodies ASAP to make sure it comes in time! Have fun gifting!

Check out gift ideas for your mom and the boys in your life!

XOXO,

Margot
