Gift Giving: Friends

Hello, World.

Given that the holidays are coming up, I thought it would be fun to share some gift giving ideas for friends! I try to personalize all my gifts for my friends and family, but I know sometimes it’s hard to think of things to get, especially when people don’t want anything. I’m a HUGE giver. I love giving gifts. I like watching people open the gifts I give them, and see their reaction to the little cluster of treats I’ve gathered just for them. I actually like giving gifts more than I like receiving them, which I guess is weird to some people. Anyway, I perused Pinterest for a bit, and included some things I typically buy for people, and here is what I came up with:
1) Essie nail polished (typically $8.50)
2) Fancy candle (great scents at Bed, Bath, and Body; Urban Outfitters; Anthropologie, this one: $12)
3) Chunky circle scarves! (Cost Plus World Market has great scarves, all under $25)
4) A custom phone case (this one of the San Francisco skyline $25)
5) Watches (This one $34 from Urban Outfitters)
6) Jewelry that fits their personality! (Etsy has tons of quirky things like this for $10-$25)
7) Knee-high socks, they’re cozy, can be worn with boots, and add color to an outfit (These from Urban Outfitters, 2 for $22)
8) Monogrammed mugs! (These from Anthropologie, $8)
9) Coasters because they can be adorable (these a 4-coaster set from Anthropologie $32)

These are just a few ideas, but they can be great additions to whatever you want to get your friends. Hey, even a combination of a few of these items would be great! I hope you enjoy giving gifts as much as I do, and I hope you have a great time gift buying!
