Sometimes I am the worst when it comes to getting gifts for my girly friends. I leave it until the last minute and then I am frantically buying things online to get something bought and sent off in time. Sadly, gone are the days when I could spend a while thoughtfully creating a personalised gift. I loved being able to make scrapbooks or photo frames, filled with pictures of us and our friends. Maybe one day I’ll get back to it?
For now, though, here are some ideas, if you are lacking a little on the inspiration side of things too. A little something for everyone here…
1.Benefit Rollerlash Mascara from Boots – £19.50
7.Black Opium by Yves Saint Laurent – £45 for 30ml
These two are perfect for any of your close friends that are beauty lovers. I have used the mascara for a while now and I love it! It isn’t clumpy or too wet, if that makes any sense. It really separates the eyelashes and lengthens them. I would love this as a gift so I’d like to think that my friends would too. As for the perfume, I got this for my birthday back in April and I love it. I was most impressed that my father-in-law picked it out in duty free all by himself haha. It is a lovely,quite unusual scent. It isn’t floral smelling which I love.
3.BFF Bracelet from Coconut Lane – £22*
4.Butterfly Link Necklace from Tatty Devine – £17.50
Jewellery lovers would love these two items. The bracelets can be BFF bracelets, so one of you keeps one and one of you keeps the other. You could just give her both! I love all of the jewellery from Coconut Lane if you haven’t shopped there before (you can use the code AAUBLOG20 to get 20% purchases from there too). As for the Tatty Devine necklace, there are so many gorgeous designs on that site too. So if this isn’t up here street, there will be something that is. Stunning and unique pieces.
2.Hexagonal Glass Storage Box from H&M – £12
This little trinket box is perfect for home lovers. It will add sparkle any dresser or could even be used to store jewellery in their room or soaps in the bathroom. There are a few colours available but I love the copper version.
5.i heart Sparkling from i heart Wines – from £5.50*
6.Large Passion Fruit Martini Yankee Candle – £21.99
If your bestie loves cocktails, then these two things will work well for her. The sparkling wine can be found in retailers like Morrisons, Tesco and Sainsburys. It has a kick of juicy fruit flavours and ripe fruit aromas so it makes it the perfect party drink that is best drunk nice and cold! Perfect for making cocktails with over summer, right? The candle is ridiculously well rated, for it’s fruity scent. I love anything passion fruit so it is a winner with me.
Anything here take your fancy?

These are lovely choices – I love Yankee candles, they make great presents, who doesn’t love a scented candle. I really like the butterfly necklace too.
I love everything you have picked here. But I am a massive lover of jewellery and make-up. So I would absolutely love to be given the bracelet, necklace and mascara. And that candle does sound like it will smell divine. Hugs Lucy xxxx
