10 Amazing Gift Ideas For Your Girls

I don’t know about you, but I find that giving a great gift is a lot more fun than getting something. It’s even more fun when you know that you’ve gotten something really super amazing that will take you from someones #6 favorite person to somewhere in their top three. Even better is when this can be accomplished without spending too much money. Here are 10 amazing gift ideas for your girls:

1. Phone accessories:

We have our phones on us 24/7, so will this gift not only be useful but it will also serve as a constant reminder of what an amazing friend you are. Go online and find a case that is super personal – maybe one with their initial or a cute kitten if they are a crazy cat lady (we all have one friend). Sure, they may already have a phone case, but at some point they will need to replace it. Boom – perfect gift. (InvitationBox sells custom photo cases for $14.99)

2. Cute eyeshadow kits:

Sephora and other department stores all sell these compact eyeshadow kits from great names like Laura Mercier and Stila that are under $30 and make a great gift. Get something super glam like a smokey eye kit that she is likely lacking from her repertoire of shadows. Worst case scenerio she exchanges it for something else she really wants/needs. (Sephora makes a great 10 color palette for $30)

3. Manicure kit:

These handy little things cost under $20 at most department stores and are something that every girl needs but very few actually have. We all know how annoying it is when your manicure is ten days old and your hands are all dry and gnarly looking – this thing could be a lifesaver.

4. Personalized notepad:

I go through notepads like I’m a senior citizen. I don’t know what it is, but I just like writing things down like the good old days. A personalized journal¬†with initials or whatever other funny thing you want to inscribe can be found online at Cafepress for about $13. Stores like Papyrus also sell really cool, artsy journals that make great gifts for under $20.

5. A framed pic:

This is one of my all time favorite gifts to give, even when you aren’t on a budget. Go to Target or TJ Maxx and find a really pretty frame and print out one of your favorite pics of the girls (one where the gift receiver looks amazing obviously). You can print a picture for about 10 cents from your computer by sending to a Walgreens or Duane Reade photo department near you.

6. Gift card to their favorite coffee spot:

This is something that they are guaranteed to use, and since coffee isn’t too expensive (unless they’re drinking extra grande frappes, in which case you should buy them a session with a trainer), they will be able to get quite a few drinks out of $20 or $25.

7. Potted flower/cactus

Every girl loves having flowers in their place, unless you’re me and you kill every single plant that touches foot in your apartment. For me, a great gift would be a little cactus family or something which is a little harder to kill (but will be dead in a month anyway). You can get something cute at Wholefoods, Home Depot or the local flower shop for $25 or less.

8. Jewelry holder

A jewelry holder is another one of those gifts that every girl could use but very few have.¬†It keeps all of your rings and necklaces separated so you don’t have to spend an hour trying to untangle them (aka getting them more tangled and then crying).

9. Tampon cases:

great gifts for girls Ok I would never even think of this, but it’s actually a pretty amazing gift – especially when they are cool like the Karyn Cantor ones sold on Uncommon Goods for $30. Once a month you need them, and no one will know what you’re taking to the bathroom when you get up from dinner. So Bond like.

10.Fun iPad case:

If you have a little more money to spend on that friend who lent you her favorite dress for that wedding or let you stay on her couch for a week while you cried about the guy you took back a day later… get her one of these amazing ipad cases from Zazzle. Most people just get a plain black ugly case and don’t think to get something cute – so do it for them. (Please note this is only a great gift if they actually own an ipad).
