It's Day 2 of Holiday Gift Guide Week and I couldn't be more excited. Today it's all about spoiling your BFF.
You know the person I'm talking about. The one who has your coffee order memorized, makes you laugh when you're freaking out, sends cards and packages when you need a boost, agrees to fly to another city with you to see your mutual favorite band, and responds to every text with the perfect gif. This one's for her.
I don't know about you, but TV is one of the things my besties and I bond over. Last year in this gift guide, I shared a Schitt's Creek holiday ornament and this year I could not resist suggesting these Golden Girls ornaments. These are sold at Gus & Ruby Letterpress, a women-owned business that I absolutely adore.
My BFFs and I are obsessed with the Netflix show Somebody Feed Phil. Creator and host Phil Rosenthal just released a book that would make an excellent gift.
If you really want to wow her, combo the book with this crewneck sweatshirt featuring lyrics from the show's theme song.
Continuing with the food theme, I love this cheese-themed pencil set. How could you not smile if you had these at your desk?
To help her get into the cozy, Hallmark movie viewing mode, gift her this Woodfire candle which comes in the most stunning mercury glass vessel. This candle is available at Greentail Table in Newton, MA, one of my go-to, local spots. Thankfully, anything sold there can also be shipped!
With the candle glowing, she'll also need a nice new blanket to really get comfortable. This plaid one from Mark & Graham comes in 15 colors and you can even add her initials.
If leopard print is more her style, they have that too.
You've heard of self care, but have you heard of elf care? David's Tea is offering an "elf care" tea set with four flavors of tea in the most fun and festive packaging.
If she likes to unwind with a hot bath, surprise her with this amazing tub tray. It can hold a book, a phone, a candle, a glass of wine and more.
If she's a makeup gal, this Pat McGrath trio is fantastic. Each pouch comes full of sequins. I own this set and I use it constantly!
Jazz up her holiday party outfits with these brightly colored hoop earrings. These are sold at Mint Julep, another wonderful, women-owned shop.
That's also where I found this gold party clutch. It's the perfect size for phone, keys, lip gloss, etc.
