7 Perfect Holiday Gift Ideas for Her

Not sure what to get your best friend this year? What about your mother? Your sister who lives out in Oregon? Not to worry! We’ve got seven perfect holiday gift ideas that are sure to put a smile on all of their faces.

From the homemade to the haute couture, you’re bound to find something on this list that bring joy to all of your favorite gal pals.

1. Gift Cards

Before you roll your eyes and ask, “Aren’t gift cards kind of...impersonal?”, we urge you to let us explain.

Imagine receiving the gift of your dreams: the thing you’ve longed for day after day, month after month. You’ve put off buying it for yourself because you didn’t want to splurge and spend the extra money on yourself. It’s understandable.

In actuality, getting a gift card is exactly that: it’s opening up the gift you’ve been waiting for. When your mother, sister, or best friend opens up that card, she won’t see that you didn’t know what to get her. She’ll see that you knew her well enough to know she would want to pick out her own present on her own time.

2. A Travel Journal

For all the places you’ll go together and all the adventures you’ll have apart (that you’ll, of course, want her to share all about), get your best friend a gorgeous, artful travel journal.

The best gifts are the ones with a personal touch, so make sure you start out the journal for her with a note or two about your most exciting trip together. Remind her of how much her adventurous spirit means to you.

This holiday season, get inspired to take on the world—and take your BFF with you!  

3. Indulgent Hair Masques

Who doesn’t love a good spa day? If only you could justify shelling out the big bucks every time you wanted to get a massage or a facial or a hair treatment.

The good news is: you don’t need to anymore! Okay, so massages and facials are still kind of pricey—but hair masques aren’t!

When you’re trying to come up with ways to stuff stockings this holiday season, make sure you include indulgent hair masques as a special treat that will transform any house into a luxurious day spa.  

4. A Homemade Candle

As far as homemade gifts go, this one is a cinch. You don’t need to know how to crochet; you don’t have to have an artistic eye at all. You just need to have a little wax, some essential oils, and an old mason jar, and voila! You’re right on track to making a fantastic, heartfelt gift.

Just stop by your local hobby shop for all the necessary ingredients, and start churning them out. Homemade candles are ideal for just about everyone on your list.

P.S. Don’t forget to make one for yourself, too!

5. Relaxing Lavendar Shampoo

Relaxing lavender and invigorating mint: it’s hard to deny this fragrant combo. This holiday season, give your gal pals, sisters, mothers, and daughters all the gift that keeps on giving—great hair.

When you’re on the lookout for fabulous gifts that are not only useful but also thoughtful, look no further than this Lavender-Mint shampoo.  

It’s chock full of nourishing ingredients, so it’s guaranteed to keep their hair looking and feeling salon-fresh day after day.

Again, don’t forget to snag some for yourself while you’re at it!

6. A Colorful Coffee (or Tea) Mug

“Sip, sip, hooray!” That’s what all the ladies in your life will be saying whenever they fill up the cozy mug you give them this holiday season.

Mugs with fun, cheeky sayings are sure to get a rise out of your friend—and that cute coworker she keeps mentioning to you.

Bonus idea: stuff the mug with all her favorite coffee beans or tea bags.

7. A Unique Necklace

‘Tis the season to be glamorous! Give the gift of glam this season with simple charm necklaces for all of your BFFs.

Nothing says, “Happy holidays! I think you’re fantastic!” quite like a personalized necklace handpicked by someone close to you.

Help your lady loves Always Be Styled with some unique jewelry this holiday season!

We all know that the best gifts are the ones that come from the heart. That being said, it doesn’t hurt to throw in some indulgent and glamorous treats in there for good measure!
