We’ve pulled together fifteen fantastic gifts that you’re gal pals are sure to appreciate – a little fun, a tad quirky, and one hundred percent amazing…just like them…
A worthy crown for your Boho beauty of a friend. This crochet beanie features a detailed floral pattern constructed of soft, 100% cotton.
For the best friend who’s kept you in the pink, give her the warm and fuzzies. This ultra-comfy Sherpa jacket comes with a removable hood and zip pockets, to keep your gal pal cozy warm. Features a front-zip closure, oversized silhouette and ribbed cuffs and hem.
If there is one thing 2020 has taught us – never underestimate the power of washing your hands. Unfortunately it has also reminded us that lots of washing = dry skin. For the gal pal who’s always cracking you up, give her a gift that will keep her hands from feeling that way. Two gentle formulas designed to revive dry hands. Both the Hand Wash and Hand Cream are packed with nourishing ingredients, such as organic aloe and calming chamomile, and leave a subtle, refreshing citrus scent. Beauty Counter only uses high quality ingredients in sustainable packaging and they also actively support and give back to organizations striving to improve the beauty industry’s standards for what goes into their products and the packages they are made of.
Appropriately called the “better than your boyfriend’s Tee”, the Harlow Distressed BFF Tee gives the same comfort with a slimmer, more flattering slouchy fit. Made of high quality cotton jersey, with the signature raw edge cut-out detail along the neck, this is the perfect gift for your fashionable, fur-mama friend.
It’s not like there hasn’t always been stress, but this year we sure got it and some. Part of being a good friend is helping alleviate those stressful moments. Give your friend the perfect excuse for her to have a little “me time” and soothe some worries away. This gift set from Pacifica Beauty comes with a facial mask, cream foam face wash, booster serum and probiotic cream lotion. 100% Vegan and cruelty free, they contain coconut water, Vegan probiotics, caffeine and Hyaluronic acid.
We all have that one friend (or maybe more than one) that speaks her mind and takes no prisoners. Even if the only thing she cooks is toast, you know she will appreciate this present…mic drop…
For the friend who never shirks from a hands-on project. This instructional book contains illustrated tool guides, how-to projects, essential skills, and stories from real-world builder girls and women. Written by the nonprofit founder Emily Pilloton, who started Girls Garage as a way to give girls the tools to build the world they want to see. Working with girls 9-18, the nonprofit helps empower them to take on the world and with this book, it aims to spread that message across the globe.
For the friend who loves to get her “oooommms” out, this diffuser combines sensory essentials for the eyes and nose. Seven colorful LEDs blend together as aromatic mists make inhaling a sensory delight. Perfect for her after a restful Shavasana or a mindful mediation.
No one could have predicted this must have accessory of 2020, but we’re all doing our part to sport them when we are out and about. This bundle kit from Tarte includes their very own Tarte purple mask, a travel sized Vegan Stay Spray (made to help keep your gal’s makeup set all day, even under that steamy mask) and for banishing the blemishes and keeping her pores clog-free, a travel sized version of their Knockout tingling toner. This should bring a smile to her face (even if you can’t see it).
There are cookies, and then there are cookies. Guess which these are? If your gal pal’s spirit animal is Cookie Monster, she’ll be doing cartwheels for these. Milk Bar is a sweet (and occasionally savory) shop that’s been turning familiar treats upside down and on their heads, shaking up the dessert scene since 2008. Bon Appetit magazine called them “one of the most exciting bakeries in the country.” Their flavorful treats are delish and sometimes unexpected (like their Cornflake-Chocolate-Chip-Marshmallow cookie). What a sweet choice!
Winter is rough on all of us, and especially now as we try to mask up when we’re out, and stay in when we can. Between the abrasive harsh winds outside and the dry heated air inside, our delicate facial skin gets the worst of it. Clogged pores, dry patches, wind burn…we could all use some products that, well, just work. If you’ve got a friend who’s skin is at their wits end, bring her the big guns! Kate’s AHA-infused, fruit-enzyme-packed ExfoliKate® trio of products. These are her best-selling, clinic-inspired items, including their customer-obsessed face wash, holy grail Super Facial, and triple acid resurfacing treatment. With these at her side, winter doesn’t stand a chance.
For the friend who states her case. Super soft, comfortable and made with REPREVE®, a certified water repellent performance fiber produced from recycled plastic bottles. Each face mask comes with 3 multi-layer, replaceable filters and sports a touch of spandex and a hidden metal nose-piece for a snug fit, making it great for workouts.
For the friend who loves her shows, be it “Gossip Girl” (example above) or “Friends”, Star Wars, Disney or even if she’s a fan of the Griswolds! There is a multi-charmed bracelet just for her.
For the friend who’s always upgrading to the next gen phone, surprise her with a brand new case for it. Choose her device type, what level of impact resistance and then the real fun begins. Casetify lets you upload a group of your fav photos and place them Tik Tok tile style all over the case. Prices may vary based on device and case.
