The Best Gifts for Friends


I love getting gifts for friends around the holidays, but it can feel daunting and expensive. Here are some great cost-friendly gifts to get for a few girlfriends! 

Gifts for friends can be hard to shop for. Depending on how many friends you’re buying for, this gift giving can be a really expensive endeavor. Here are some great gifts you can grab for a couple of girlfriends!

Gifts for Friends:

    • Perfume Sampler
      • For only $25, this is the perfect gift to give to a friend. They can try out different scents before they commit to buying a bigger bottle for themselves.
    • Sephora Gift Set  –  Laneige Mini SetCharlotte Tilbury Glow Set
      • These gift sets are great to give to a group of friends. I know I have a hard time spending money on makeup for myself, so this is a great option that any friend would love.
    • Sephora Gift Card
      • A gift card doesn’t even have to be a ton of money – gift them $15 dollars and they can pick something up from that ever-tempting mini section at the Sephora checkout!
