Have you ever been in a dilemma when it comes to buying gifts for your friends? Because I have, always. You don’t want them to go all Rachel on you and gift it to someone else or exchange it. You definitely want to fit it in your budget but at the same time want it to make them genuinely and not fake happy.So, here is a list of gift ideas if you have ran out of your list already.
FOR THE ALCOHOLIC FRIEND
We all have that one friend who can drink at any occasion. She is the first one at the bar and the last one to leave the party. She is obviously not addicted (or maybe she is) but you love her and you have got to give her something that shows how much you support her. What should you gift her?
Ans: Help her sneak in booze anywhere with miniature booze bottles, hip flasks and tumblers. And for places she can’t drink, like at work liquor chocolates do just fine! Shot glasses, cork and bottle opener and pretty good too if she hosts a lot of parties.
FOR THE FRIEND WHO LOVES SKINCARE.
You know the one who keeps applying hand cream, sunscreen lotion and perfume. She has researched so much on skincare she could give dermatologists a run for their money. Her bag is full of products, her skin is always glowing. And you are always envious. What should you gift her?
Ans: Everything travel sized. Make her a basket of hand cream, face wash, face scrub, rejuvenating face masks, face wipes, hand sanitizer, miniature perfumes and under eye creams. Add in a multi purpose pouch so she doesn’t need to carry the basket everywhere!
FOR THE FRIEND WITH THE STRONGEST SELFIE GAME.
These friends will click their way even through a funeral. They are interacting with their phones more than you at a brunch. Their social media is full of themselves pouting and posing and they look nothing short of a supermodel. What do you gift them?
Ans: They may love you for an illuminating phone cover. There’s portable mini phone LED (for phones with no front flash), selfie stick, , tripod, Bluetooth clicker, a wire strap to prevent dropping your phone and a portable charger too.
FOR THE FRIEND WHO NEVER GREW UP
They still sleep with teddy bears, love minions, use soft cute pouches, wallets, beanies, love unicorns, panda bears. Their outfit is never complete without something CUTE on it. What do you gift them?
Ans: Pillow covers, panda or unicorn lamps, eye masks, fluffy slippers, onesies, hooded bathrobes, animal printed socks, phone covers,bathing suits, sling bags, caps and beanies.
FOR THE MINIMALISTIC FRIEND
Their wardrobe includes white, black and grey. They are generally introverts and love reading. They believe in giving back and make no extra effort to stand out. These friends are rare. So hold on to them really tight. What to give them?
Ans: Plants, watches, notebooks, restaurant gift card, food and wine tasting invites, spa day gift cards. less is always more.
I hope this post helps. If you are still clueless, don’t stress. Make something yourself like a DIY or a personalized card. It is the thought that matters eventually 🙂
