christmas gift ideas for your bestie flights and feelings

Christmas gift ideas for your bestie have arrived! Calling all last-minute Christmas shoppers! First of all, shame on you. Second of all – don’t worry. You don’t have to wrap up another lame bath set –  we know you need some inspiration for your bestie’s Christmas gift, but it’s ok because we’ve got you! We chose 4 gifts each to give each other this year as we figured we needed some extra presents to account for the absolute chaos that is the year 2020. Feel free to look into giving the same gifts to your besties (or anyone expecting presents from you!) or use the categories we’ve assigned to them as your Christmas gift idea guide!

The Stocking Filler Gift: Essential Oils

With everything going on in the world, looking after yourself needs to be at the top of the priority list. You can’t fix the world but you can give a bit of peace as a Christmas gift to your bestie! Indulge your best friend in some aromatherapy with these essential oils. They can be used in the bath/shower, added to your massage oil or in your diffuser. A little goes a long way with these! 


The Practical Gift: Wig Hanger by The Meya Store

Abi loves her hair almost as much as she loves her bestie Lulu! With all of these lockdowns, No Wig Days are more frequent and storing them neatly is essential. The Meya Store hangers are pretty, luxurious-looking and perfect for wig storage. After popping them on the hanger and in the bag you can simply hang these on a rail in your wardrobe. These black-owned products are also really good for travelling – for when you want to bring all your different personalities on your trips!

The Re-Up Gift: Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturising Lotion

A re-up gift is one that can never go wrong. When you know your friend loves a product, a gift that will always work will be topping her up! You can guarantee the gift will be useful and your bestie will be pleased, like Abi is with her Dramatically Different Moisturising Lotion by Clinique. Especially if your bestie is someone who would usually wait until they travel to stock up on their beauty gifts in duty free – it will be a while before that happens so bring them the joy this Christmas.

The Beauty Gift: Stush Lashes by Jennie Jenkins Beauty

When wearing falsies has become your bestie’s personality trait, it makes sense to gift her a new fluttery set! This dramatic mink lash set from Jennie Jenkins’ new beauty brand is beautifully packaged and all the better that they’re launched by the OG beauty youtuber who taught us how to beat our faces to perfection. 

The Edible Gift: Oliver Bonas Prosecco & Peach Marmalade

Way back when, our friendship was actually solidified when Abi offered Lulu some of her food one sixth form lunch time. Many years and trips later, Abi has learned that Lulu is definitely the more adventurous of the two of them when it comes to food which makes this peachy prosecco marmalade concoction from Oliver Bonas an excellent gift. Now there’s nothing like a tall flute of prosecco to celebrate life’s precious moments, so how about prosecco on toast to celebrate… mornings? Sounds like a good Christmas gift for your best friend to us!


The Cozy Gift: Missguided Co-Ord Set

Yet another l*ckdown (redacted, as we are trying to minimise p*ndemic talk in our corner of the internet)! With Tier 3 looming in London, there are many more cozy days in ahead. This time of year would usually be party dresses and sequins, but with the state of the world we’re going to be dripping head to toe in casual and loungewear. So that means, your bestie can never have too many sets! Gift her her new fave co-ord set this Christmas – it will be much better than fluffy socks.


The Productive Gift: House of CB Stationary Set

The best Christmas gift ideas for your bestie are the helpful ones. All this working from home business due to the current *unprecedented & uncertain times* can be difficult to adjust to, especially when there are so many distractions within easy reach (we’re looking at you, Netflix). What better way to get your bestie back into girl boss mode? This cute stationary set will get her organised and ready for the working day in her home office.


The DIY Gift: Original Flava Cookbook

Hands up who has sacrificed too much of their salary to Deliveroo and their mates Just Eat and Uber Food? All of us? Ok. It’s time you help your bestie get more acquainted with the room that has the oven in. In their cookbook named after their popular social media channels ‘Original Flava’,  the McAnuff brothers take you on a virtual tour of their nan’s kitchen. With tantalising illustrations along with clear and simple instructions on how to serve up the best Caribbean recipes for yourself. If your bestie is in Tier 3 and missing the bars, there’s a solid drinks chapter, too!
