$30 Gift Guide: Best Friends by fromfoothillstofog
I love buying gifts for people, I've always said, I wish I could make a living doing just that. It's so fun thinking of unique ideas that are heartfelt and meaningful. Although I wish I could, it's not in my budget to spend hundreds of dollars on each of my best girlfriends. So I created this little $30 and under gift guide as inspiration for all of you.
I try to think about the person I'm buying for, and my relationship with them. Lucky for me, I have amazing friends here in the city. We have regular "girls nights" when we make dinner, drink wine, visit and watch trashy television like The Bachelor! It's one of my favorite nights of the week, and although we're all busy, we make sure and get together as often as possible.
Since our "Bachelor Night" as we call it, is a favorite for all of us, I kept that theme with some of these gift ideas. You can never have too many wine glasses, especially the way we drink it! We each take turns making dinner, and love good olive oil and balsamic vinegar to add flavor to our meals. Since we're usually cozy in our sweats, cute socks or pj's are a must!
When I buy gifts, I also try to buy things that I would love to have, but is not something I would typically buy for myself. Yummy smelling candles, or cute ring trays are always fun to have around the house. Plus it's something that will be used over and over again.
And what girl doesn't like a little sparkle? It's always fun to open a package and find jewelry inside. My girlfriends and I are all big Alex and Ani fans, but these initial bracelets and sparkly earrings would be a perfect addition to any Holiday outfit, and top off the look with a kissable berry lips!
If you haven't noticed, I'm obsessed with this Anthro gold mug. And since I know my girls love coffee as much as I do, I figure a little gold monogram mug would make their early mornings a little brighter.
I don't know where I'd be without my friends, and I want to make sure they know how much I appreciate them!
Hopefully this gives you an idea of what to get your girlfriends this Christmas! Head over to my Polyvore for links to each of the items mentioned!
