Go To Gift Ideas for Your Friends | Lifestyle & Beauty

I quite like looking through gift guides and getting a little inspiration for people that I need to buy for. With Christmas just being here, I feel like I am in a bit of a rut with knowing what to get people. So it is nice just to have a plethora of gift ideas that you can just get to for any occasion. So here are a few things that I think work well for gifts for your girly friends.

Bath & Beauty Products
I don’t think you can go too far wrong with bath or beauty products. Bath bombs and body lotions always go down well. If it is a friend that you know well, you will know what their favourite scents or brands are. Makeup palettes are also a good option for a go-to gift. Some can be quite pricey, but there are many affordable brands to choose from. Just shop around and stick to the budget that you have.

I love to get flowers; I don’t know who doesn’t? Fresh flowers just brighten up the home and add so much colour. They will work perfectly for your friends. If you know their favourite flower than even better. It not, it is best to go for a mixed bunch. You often think that flowers are only suitable if you live close to the person. There are so many places to order flowers online that all you need to do is visit site and browse the range of flowers that they have.

I love to get hampers too! You can buy such a variety of them from different shops. They all tend to feature the classic options like wine and chocolates, so they are a winner. If you are feeling a little bit creative, though, you could make your own hamper. You would just need a little basket or tray and then fill it with some of their favourite things. Rather than just buying a generic one with wines or chocolates, you could make sure that it has their favourite wines and chocolates. You could add in a DVD or something else that you know they will enjoy, like cute stationary.

Another option could be to fill it with something you have made. How about some homemade cupcakes or brownies? These would work for any occasion too. I think gifts like this are always a little bit more special because it shows a lot of thought and effort has gone into it. Just make sure that you have planned ahead and have enough time to make them!

This may seem like a lame option, but it is a winner in two ways. It saves you having to get something that you don’t know they will even want. So probably a better option for people that you don’t see as often. It is a winner in another way because the recipient can then get something that they may have been saving for or had their eye on. Go for a department store unless your friend has an absolute favourite shop.
