There are few things in life that thrill me more than picking out the perfect present for a close friend. After all we've been through this year, the holiday season is the ideal time to show your inner circle an extra dose of gratitude.
Today's gift list is packed with ideas for making your BFF feel celebrated, appreciated and pampered. Let's dive right in!
As the temperatures drop, your bestie needs a great pair of touchscreen gloves to be able to text you back with ease while walking her dog, shoveling her sidewalk or taking a break on the slopes. This particular pair is sold by Olives & Grace, one of my favorite small businesses here in Boston's South End.
For maximum coziness during the winter months, order her this fluffy sherpa robe from Mark & Graham. It comes in three colors: ivory, grey and blush.
For sipping her morning coffee or tea, this confetti mug from David's Tea is fabulous.
This Corkcicle mug comes with a cover to keep your beverage warm and avoid spills. This feels like just the right item to hold while sitting around a backyard fire pit.
To give her the feeling of a spa day, snag this face mask gift set from Origins.
If she's a skincare junkie, this Tatcha Dewy Skin Duo will thrill her!
I am obsessed with these Ouai bath bombs which are called Chill Pills. They are jasmine and rose scented, giving any bath a luxurious upgrade.
If she's into candles, the Anecdote line has some very sweet options. For example, the Hometown candle which says "Smells of old traditions and familiar faces" or the Snow Day candle which reads "Smells of canceled plans and cups of hot cocoa."
If she has a sweet tooth, up her at-home baking game with this chocolate peppermint brownie mix from Stonewall Kitchen. Maybe she'll even share the finished product with you.
