Gift Guide 2016: For Your BFF


The second gift guide of 2016: your BFF, sister, or in my case sister-in-law. Along with gifts for my mom, my best friend and sister-in-law might be my favorite people to shop for ... probably because we have similar taste. And in case you missed it: Gifts for the Home.

Top Two Rows: 1. I love picking up gifts for my friends I know they wouldn't splurge on themselves, like this Slip Embroidered Silk Queen Pillow Case. It comes in the cutest little case and is supposed to be "an 8 hour beauty treatment every night." Need I say more? // 2. Glossier Set of Three Balm Dot Com so she can stash one in her work bag, one in her gym bag, and keep one on her bedside table. // 3. You can't go wrong with a chic pair of black earrings, like these Shashi Mia Tassel Fan Earrings (which also come in cream). // 4. Obviously this is something you'd only buy for a close friend, but these are supposed to be so comfortable. And again, I love buying something the recipient wouldn't splurge on themselves. Cheek Frills Love Four Pack. // 5. When the bottle is as pretty as the polish, you can't go wrong. I love the forrest green of Smith &a Cult Nail Polish in Darjeeling Darling. // 6. The Truffle Clarity Clutch Mini makes it easy to transfer essentials from one bag to another. Practical and pretty.

Middle Row: 7. A fun pair of sunnies that's a collab between two of my favorite brands: Self Portrait x Le Specs. Who wouldn't want to unwrap the Self Portrait x Le Specs Edition Four Sunglasses? // 8. Upgrade her military jacket with the Madewell Fleet Jacket. // 9. There are likely only a few people you know well enough to buy art for, and your BFF is one of them. This Original 'Moroccan Riad’ Watercolor by hellobirdie would make such a sweet gift. // 10. Your sister-in-law would get a lot of use (and compliments) out of the Dot Half Moon Round Leather Crossbody.
Bottom Rows: 11. The Herbivore Pink Clay Exfoliating Facial Mask is the perfect small gift. // 12. Chokers are having a major moment this fall. Loving this Vanessa Mooney Lace Choker Necklace (and guessing my BFF would, too). // 13. Also having a moment? Adult coloring books like the Vogue Coloring Book. // 14. A cute weekender to replace the duffle she's had since college would make a great gift. Loving the Sole Society ‘Cassidy’ Faux Leather Duffle. // 15. Velvet is huge for fall. Gift the Rebecca Minkoff Leo Clutch to your sister-in-law and she'll bring it to every holiday party this season.
