I like to spoil my girl friends rotten! How’s that for an opening? It’s true though. Throughout the year, I like to surprise them with little gifts in the mail or in person and these don’t have to happen around their birthdays or even Christmas. Still, an occasion like Galentine’s Day is one I can’t pass on, especially since it’s much more meaningful and important to me than Valentine’s Day.
We might have each others backs, but nothing says that clearer than a bright art print, a fun little card in the mail, a perfume that’s the essence of her or a scented candle that smells like a million bucks. Here’s what I’d get for the special ladies in my life, my #girlgang, if you will.
For the Bookish bestie
When there’s one thing that’s always a great friend-to-friend gift, than it’s a book, especially this Besties Book. Artist Leah Goren shared illustrations of the many faces of friendship over time, long-distance ones as well as arguments and romantic quarrels. She truly captures the essence of friendship right there.
for the showgirl
When you have a friend who’s an avid show dancer, who loves to doll up and puts some drama in her lashes, these Sephora House of Lashes Tinker Bell Lashes are the perfect gift for her next act.
for the home buddy
I have a knack for artsy throw pillows. To me, they completely transform a room and set a different mood in an instant. The Magical Thinking Embroidered Eye Pillow is such a nice eye-catcher, I think. It adds that little eclectic vibe to every room and will make the girl of your choice very happy.
for the new mom
I love me some good old body oil and this Herbivore Botanials Jasmine Body Oil gets all the raves right now. The cute packaging doesn’t hurt either, but it’s the perfect gift for the new mama in your gang. A quick shower, some body oil, and she’s good to go!
for the special golden girl
Be Happy Be Bright Be You what more do I have to add here?! This golden bold print says it all and will sure put a smile on your friend’s face. How could it not?
For the die-hard rose lady
I have a friend who’s obsessed with anything rose scented. She especially loves the smell of red roses and when you have a friend who’s on the same team, I say, you can’t go wrong with Diptique Roses Candle. The small 70g version won’t break the bank and lasts for a really long time. Prepare to get all the happy squeals :)
For the Perfume fan
I am absolutely smitten with the Elizabeth and James Nirvana line, especially their latest addition Bourbon. I want to swim in that stuff! The original scents Nirvana White and Nirvana Black, or Day and Night as I like to call them, which I also own are crowd-pleasers for a good reason. White is a great light floral scent that’s perfect for Spring and Black is a very woodsy and sultry scent for a wild night out or for that lady who loves a bit drama in her perfume like I do.
For the Beauty Lover
It’s no secret that I am a Sephora devotee. I even wrote an open love letter that shows how crazy I am! Their signature collection truly is to die for though, especially the face masks. This Sephora Collection Orchid Face Mask is no exception. A little bit of anti-aging magic plus a good dose of moisturizing and you’re done. Just like that!
