When I was little and picked out gifts for my friends, I inevitably tried to convince my mom that I needed one for me as well. Many times she gave in (who didn’t need more of these?!) and other times I got a flat No (sorry, hippos). Present day, if I love an item I’ve purchased, I’ll always gift it to a friend. And fortunately they all love classic closet staples, beautifully scented candles, and tried-and-true beauty products as well. These are my picks for those special females that we can never thank/gift/love enough!
1/ Cuyana Tote Bag: A perfect leather tote bag might just be one of the perfect gifts. Trust me, she’ll use it for years and it’ll just get better with age!
2/ GlamGlow Brightening Treatment: We all want to slough off that dry winter skin! This illuminating mask not only exfoliates, but it’s also incredibly moisturizing.
3/ Jogger Pants: These are perfect for all-day Netflix binges on the couch. Add some sneakers and a fitted tee and she’s off to run errands in style!
5/ Minted City Maps: Why not gift your faraway friends a gold foiled map of their city?! It’s pretty enough to stand alone or a perfect complement to a gallery wall.
6/ ‘What I Know For Sure’ by Oprah: I read this book over the summer. It’s a quick read, but incredibly insightful and heartwarming…and one I’ll definitely gift over the years.
7/ Downtown Sweatshirt: The majority of my sweatshirts are over three years old. Even ones with graphics and text have become lifelong closet staples.
8/ Dior ‘Nail Glow’ Nail Polish: It’s pricey for nail polish, but the faint color turns out a gorgeous everyday pink. And it’s sheer enough that if it chips it’s not noticeable!
