6 Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas For Your Bestie

Posted in Lifestyle
on February 8, 2017

I may be in a relationship, but Josh and I don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day. I definitely prefer to have a girl’s night in with wine, Netflix and sushi. In honor of celebrating Valentine’s Day with your best friends, here are so awesome (and inexpensive) gift ideas for your BFF on the 14th.

1| Marble Notebook from Francesca’s, $14

Because who doesn’t want a notebook when you can track all your plans, ideas and #GirlBoss goals?! You can never go wrong with a simple gift like this for your best friend because it’s something she will always be able to use. P.S. I’m loving that the marble trend is still in for 2017!

2| Macron Rose Fragrance from Urban Outfitters, $18

I know so many people who love this perfume collection from Urban Outfitters. What’s better is that you can buy her this Macron Rose scent, and also pick up some macaroons to snack on as well. It’s the perfect gift combination! If you’re worried about her be picky about a fragrance, save the receipt if an exchange is needed.

3| Love iPhone Case from Forever 21, $8 

Phone cases are still in and who wouldn’t love a themed case for Valentine’s Day? Personally, I love when people have different phone cases to change out based on the time of year, so this would be the perfect addition to any phone case collection your bestie has.

4| The World Book of Love from Anthropologie, $25

If your best friend loves to read, or have cute coffee table books in her living room, pick up this unique gift from Anthropologie. It’s a collection of insights and testimonies from people all over the world about love. With 100 researchers from 50 countries summarize their particular views on the subject in 1000 words.

5| Be My Heart Pens from Barnes & Noble, $10

I don’t know about you, but I love fun, cute pens. Plus, there are something that everyone needs in their office. So, why not grab this cute, inexpensive set from Barnes & Noble? You can even add in a Starbucks gift card, and a journal (see #1) to have a complete, themed gift!

6| Valentine’s Day Wine Glass from Target, $22

Umm, need I say more? There’s nothing better than wine. Grab this wine glass for your bestie (grab one for yourself, too because #treatyoself) and get your wine on all night long as you binge-watch anything and everything on Netflix. Let’s be real, wine is every girl’s valentine!

What one of these six gifts would you like for Valentine’s Day! How are you spending your Valentine’s Day? Do you have plans with your friends or your significant other? Make sure to share in the comment below!

We all have that friend who spends more time at the gym than they do shopping. Instead of getting your BFF or family member something they won’t use, why not try one of these five picks that are $30 or less. You’ll love these options that won’t break the bank. You’ll feel a little bliss in your life knowing you got a gift your loved one will love!

1| Find Your Balance T-Shirt from Old Navy, $10

I am all about finding fun, unique and inspirational T-Shirts for working out. What better way to keep your bestie or sister motivated to keep working out than cute workout gear! There are so many awesome options at Old Navy that are very inexpensive.

2| Workout Gloves from Target, $13

Now I know you’re thinking, “Why would I ever buy my friend that, even if they love to work out?!” Trust me, whether they’re lifting weights, or doing a weight-training cardio class, these will always come in handy for your fitness friend.

3| Yoga Mat from Target, $30

I know many people who aren’t into yoga, and still use a yoga mat for warming up/cooling down stretches, ab workouts, Pilates and more. I love that there are so many different colors and patterns, so this can be a personal gift for a friend or family member.

4| Water Bottle from Ban.do, $20

Who doesn’t want this water bottle? And who doesn’t feel this way about working out? I know that any fitness and health lover would still LOVE this gift because pizza is e.v.e.r.y.t.h.i.n.g. amiright? Adding a quirky item for someone’s present is the best way to complete a gift.

5| Foam Roller from Target, $28

I can’t tell you how great it is to have your own foam roller whether your run, lift or even if you’re not a person who works out everyday. This can even be for someone you know who needs to give their muscles a little TLC. It’s a gift that will be appreciated by any fitness lover.

You all know a fellow #GirlBoss in your life whether she’s your best friend who began her own YouTube channel/blog; or a family member who started her own business. Whoever this fabulous lady is in your life, she deserves a few special gifts that she can use for planning projects, or taking a little time from a stressful week.

Planner from Francesca’s, $16

I know some people might be picky about choosing their own planners, but I also know many people who truly appreciate them as gifts! Francesca’s has some awesome picks that are inspirational, but aren’t too pricey They also have cute note pads and monthly calendar that are perfect for gifts, too!

Mug from Amazon, $13

The classic #GirlBoss mug. The only thing that would make it better is if it was a travel mug for when your Girl Boss friend/family member is running on the go. But who doesn’t love a mug to add to their own collection at home? Perfect for anyone who needs coffee to refuel for the day (who doesn’t?)

Copper wire bowel set from Francesca’s, $28

I love the idea of having baskets in the office for certain books and other office items because it’s a cute way to keep things on display in your office, and it keeps everything organized and sorted properly. If you rather go traditional with filing organizers, you can do that as well!

Neon pens from ban.do, $15

I love having a set of colored pens like this set from ban.do because it helps me organize things by category on my calendar. Meetings are in one color, events are a different color, reminders are another color, etc. If you want to give an awesome gift to your girl boss friend without breaking the bank—this is it!

#GirlBoss from Barnes & Noble, $10

Of course, how you can go wrong with the book that you friend or family member may or may not have read yet! If she wants to know the story of a fellow girl boss, this is the book you’re going to want to purchase for part of their gift!

Which gift was your favorite? What other items would you add to this list? Is there anyone on your list you need a #girlboss gift for? Make sure to share in the comments below!

5 Days of #BlissGifts [Day 1]

Happy #Blissmas, friends! The gift guides are back a little early this year.

This year, I plan to do the same with some different guides for anyone on your list with gifts that are in a range of prices. Make sure to stay up-to-date on #blissmas and the 5 days of #blissgifts by keeping up with me on Twitter and Instagram!

Let’s get into today’s gift guide, which is for the Techies and gadget-loving friends and family members in your life. Personally, I always think of my brother when I create this guide because he’s always into new gadgets and little quirky items.

1| Video Drone from Best Buy, $80

Although you can buy drones in all different sizes and prices, I think the $60 to $80 range is the best bang for your buck if you’re actually going to use it for video footage, but you don’t need an over-the-top, expensive model. You can pick these up at many electronic shops this season.

2| 3Doolder Pen Gift Set from Urban Outfitters, $99

I’m not going to lie, I think this gift would be amazing to give and receive even if you’re not into tech gifts and items on this list. (Or, maybe that’s just me.) But how cool and unique would this gift be if it’s within your price range? I’d say to go for it!

3| Prynt Photo Printer from Urban Outfitters, $150

Print instant photos from your iPhone! Attach the Prynt case to your phone, take a photo and print it out. If you have any Millennial friends and family members in your life, they would love this gift. It’s the most expensive gift on the list, but I wanted to include different price ranges for everyone.

4| Phone Mount from Urban Outfitters, $16

I would use this all the time if I were to receive this gift (hint hint to any family/friends reading, haha!) I think it would be great to have if you’re watching a tutorial while working on a project, or if you’re watching a video while you’re working.

5| Smartphone Projector from Uncommon Goods, $28

This projector accommodates any phone, and displays videos on a wall with 8x magnification. Slide the back compartment in and out to focus the image, then let the glass lens magnify without using a power source. It’s the perfect gift for anyone who loves their extreme YouTube binges.

Which gift was your favorite? What other items would you add to this list? Is there anyone on your list you need a tech gift for? Make sure to share in the comments below!
