Holiday Gift Guide | For Your Bestie

November 13, 2019
I have a handful of girlfriends that I exchange gifts with - less about the actual gift itself, but more so the thought that I saw this and it reminded me of you, so I had to get it! We don't spend a ton on these gifts and I am going under the assumption that you also have a similar exchange with your good friends. Here's a little gift guide for your bestie with all gifts under $40! 

  • These cozy BP slippers come in 5 different colors and I'm pretty sure are the best things to wear in the winter! I'll be getting myself and some friends matching pairs!
  • The most delicate initial necklace! I love that it's dainty enough that you can wear it every day and you can get their initial or even the initial of their child! 
  • How's this for a great personalized gift - a slim custom hair clip! I'm 100% going to be getting one for myself too!
  • Coffee lovers unite for this adorable phone cover. This is for the newest iPhone, perfect for that tech bestie that you have!
  • Most of my girlfriends love Sugarfina and champagne as much as I do. This little cocktail kit with a bottle of champagne is the perfect holiday gift!
  • Candles are just something I never buy for myself so I'm grateful to friends that gift this to me and I love gifting them to friends too - especially seasonal nest candles!
  • Lipsticks are the ultimate gift, but it's hard to really know what your friend will reach for - a lipstick set is the best because there is a color for every occasion! 
  • I love the idea of giving a really practical gift and one that will be used all year. This collapsible travel mug is just that and I really love the hot pink color! 
  • Journals and notebooks always make me happy - I think gifting one to a friend at this time of year gives them a fresh start for any ideas they may have. 
  • One of the best ways to make a gift standout is by adding an ornament to it! I love the special ones that Anthropologie has, especially this little champagne ornament.
  • In Boston if you shop and need a bag you pay 5-10 cents for it unless you bring your own bag. I think this reusable set of bags (comes with three) would be so great to gift to a friend who loves to shop - she could keep one at her desk at work, in her car and one at home! 

What are your favorite gifts to exchange with friends?


  1. I absolutely love that champs ornament - I know a few friends who it would be perfect for! And you cannot go wrong with a little candle.

  2. This stuff is so cute, I would be like one for me, one for her, one for me, one for her!

  3. These gift ideas are all so adorable! I was in Nordstrom the other day and smelled the Nest holiday candles--amazing!!

  4. You can never go wrong with a nest candle! I want that travel cup too- it's such a good idea!

  5. Friend gifts are the best! These are all so great - the Nest candle is SO good! I want to buy the resuable bag set for so many people on my list now, such a great idea!

  6. I love posts like these.
    That collapsible cup is pretty awesome!

  7. I always love to add an ornament to a gift - even better if it represents something to the person! That personalized hair clip is too cute.

    Just sayin',

  8. I have totally irrational fear of collapsing that travel mug with coffee still in it and spilling it all over myself! LOL that would be my luck!

  9. I love really delicate necklaces like that initial one. So dainty and pretty!

  10. I want those cozy slippers. And the dainty necklaces are always a win in my book!

  11. These are all so cute! I need some slippers like that!

  12. I want the candle and notebooks.

  13. I am obsessed with that phone cover! Can my best friend be myself ;) ha!!!

  14. Fabulous gift guide!! those slippers are calling my name!

  15. These are such great gift guides! My friends and I tend to do gag gifts more than anything (what can I say? humor is my love language), but I love these for my sisters!

  16. Bianca, ALL of these are such great gift ideas! I’m going to have to come back to this post because they’d make great stocking stuffers. I absolutely love that coffee cup phone case. Thanks for these ideas and I hope you have a great weekend, my friend!
