Best friends, near or far, leave such a significant mark in your life. While there are countless ways to show your BFF how much you value your bond, a little gift to show your appreciation is always nice! In partnership with Avatara Skin, I put together a fun little gift guide to pamper your bestie and show them how much you care. Whether you’re looking for a touch of glam (I’m talking skin care, makeup, and more) or simply want to show them how much of a #girlboss they are, I promise you that your bestie will find something to obsess over. Before I get into all the gifts, the number one thing that I recommend is a refreshing face mask! Honestly, this season can get a little overwhelming but Avatara’s face masks not only aid your skin, but they help you unwind amidst all the stress. They’re a great gift on their own but they also make the perfect pairing with any of the below!
Quick note: Showing a loved one how much you care shouldn’t be reserved for a single occasion so feel free to take this gift guide into consideration whatever time of year it is!
Girl Boss Gifts
Planner or Notebook: Help out your best gal out by gifting them something that will be super useful in working towards achieving their dreams in the New Year! This is definitely something any #girlboss can’t live without! (Home Goods, $4)
Headphones: A great pair of headphones is essential to listening to all the girl power anthems. These super glam ones above are made in collaboration between Frends x Baublebar and I’ve been obsessed with it for years! (Nordstrom, $175)
Coffee Mug: A cute mug is a great addition to a work desk and totally makes working much more fun! Shop Bando carries a wide range of playful mugs or tumblrs (for girls on the go) with positive messages to cheer on anyone! (Shop Bando Love Potion, $10)
Mix of Pins and/or Patches: The great thing about these is that you can find something unique and that best reflects your bestie’s interests. They’re perfect to tack onto backpacks or denim jackets for a touch of personality! (Girl Boss Pin, Brit + Co)
Inspirational Books: A few personal favorites of mine are Bad Girls Throughout History: 100 Remarkable Women Who Changed the World by Aphra Behn and of course, #Girlboss by Sophia Amoruso. On top of this, they would look amazing on a coffee table!
Watch: A classic and stylish addition to every outfit! (Fossil, $125)
Lipsticks: You can never have enough make-up products and the Holidays is the best time to add some bold shimmer to your everyday look. Bite Beauty Lip Gloss is the perfect shimmery gold shade to rock for any holiday party paired with the newly released Laura Mercier Extreme Lipstick (IMO: an ideal shade of red to celebrate the Christmas season).
Jewelry: Jewelry doesn’t just have to be for a significant other and can be such a good reminder of your friendship! (Fossil, $60)
Nail Polish: This one is pretty self-explanatory but one of those gifts that you can’t go wrong with! (Butter London, $5)
