It’s December and it seems like we are alllll scrambling to get gifts for our loved ones. To make it a little easier for you, I cultivated a few gift guides to help you out while shopping for the different types of friends you may have in your circle.

Gifts for your friend who loves to be cozy

We all have that friend who literally can’t wait to get home and just get cozy and lounge around their home. Give them the gift of luxury and purchase their next big fluffy robe for them, you may not see them for a while since they’ll be chilling at home with it on- but it’ll be well appreciated! Bonus gift ideas: candles, their favourite coffee / tea or giftcard to their favourite coffee house. You could even throw in a fuzzy blanket, but don’t get mad at me if you don’t hear from them til summer time.

Gifts for your foodie friend

That friend who is always baking/cooking/going to the newest restaurants or just loves to be creative in the kitchen. You can get a litttle quirky when gifting to your foodie friend and get a themed gift for an item you know they love. Bonus gift ideas: apron/oven mitts. Cute mugs from their favourite boutique. Teeny tiny sauces/jams.

Gifts for your friend who loves beauty products

This friend can be a bit difficult to shop for since you really are taking a shot in the dark if you don’t know their product preferences. Hopefully, this isn’t something a little bit of Instagram stalking can’t fix! A good fall back idea if you are reaaaaaally stumped is a gift card to Sephora/Ulta/ their local hair salon or spa that you know they covet. Bonus gift ideas: face masks, soaps, nail polish and lash curlers have never been met with a frown during the holidays.

Gifts for your friend who loves to stay active

This pal is always on the go, so a new gym bag may be the best thing you can gift them. Refilling some of their necessities would be just as much appreciated. If you know their activity/sport of choice try narrowing down their gift option to more of their niche, my personal favourite is a new yoga mat or yoga accessories BUT to each their own. Bonus gift ideas: sign them up for one of those fitFABfun boxes and pay for a month, maybe two?! Those always look adorable.

Gifts for your boss babe friend

This is an easy gift guide for your boss, your co-worker or your friend who just loves the hustle. Anything that helps them complete their goals, or plan their personal world takeover is not only appreciated- but needed. Bonus gift ideas: literally a gallon of coffee or maybe helping them complete like 5 tasks off their to-do list.

Stocking Stuffers

Can somebody contact my mum and show her this gift guide?

You can have the most fun while shopping for stocking stuffers because you can find something for everybody for such a great price. I pretty much just added all the things that I would love in my stocking this year… so seriously. Somebody send my mum this link plsN’thankyou <3

One last thing I would like to recommend is shopping small +/or local. For example, I love to gift earrings <3 Over the past two years I have purchased earrings from two makers: mepluschar or lifeofafunkygirl. Who are both super creative and powerful women who create their pieces at home and both have great unique styles and not only do I enjoy their pieces for myself, I love gifting their pieces to friends who will also appreciate their talent and help grow their community of support! This also goes for many items on my gift guide: soaps, bath bombs, teas, coffees, mugs, accessories, kitchenware and decor can be bought at many of your local boutiques and markets!

Have you already started your Christmas shopping, or do you prefer to wait last minute and shop til you drop? I’m curious!
