Cliché lockets, coffee shop gift cards, and fussy candles. Been there, done that. Score major BFF points by giving your besties something they actually want. After all, they deserve something special after having put up with your bridezilla tantrums. They’ve stood by you through thick and thin, accompanied you to every dress fitting, even helped you pick the ring! But one size doesn’t fit all, and each of your girlies has their own distinctive personalities. One may be a tomboy, another a fashionista and yet another a glamourous diva! Here’s a list of gifting sets that fit every personality
It’s been said, not all who wander are lost. This is for the globe-trotter at heart, the jet-setter of the chick clique, the one who’s known to take spontaneous trips, there’s nothing more essential than a compact sized, travel friendly kit that screams – keep me in your bag please
! Look-see here, we have the ultimate; Makeup Revolution’s Tan Surprise Kit
. Complete with a creamy matte concealer, an ultra-soft and sleek eyeliner, a hi-shine lip lacquer, intense colour payoff eyeshadow and buildable soft-pink blush, it will take you all of two seconds to decide your travel buddy must lob this into her backpack on her next escapade! She’ll also dig the Lakme Get Your Glam On Kit – Electric Orange
, an all-in-one makeup kit that includes a Blush Duo, Gloss Addict Lip Color and Gel Stylist Nail Color in a chirpy red and white travel pouch.
The Fitness Freak
Known more commonly as the ‘wellness guru’, this babe will always choose a sprint in the park, a quick jog on the treadmill or zero-equipment high intensity squats over the much hyped and loved, dainty makeup brushes and palettes. Stuck in a rut still trying to figure out her ideal present? This workout maniac will be ever so grateful for L’Oreal Paris’s Skin Brightening Regime.
Formulated with breakthrough ingredient – Melanin Vanish, this kit contains a milky face wash, day cream infused with SPF 17 and a night crème to inhibit melanin production at source that reduces tanning. She would be equally happy with Forest Essentials Classic Bath Indulgence Ritual Gift Box
, a luxurious bath and body gift set that includes a shower gel, body mist, shower oil, soap and body cream, for a post-workout treat.
The Busy Mommy
Think dirty nappies, messy pyjamas and cranky babies. The centre of attention in this bestie’s life is her little bundle of joy. While she’s so busy lovingly caring for her new born, this new-mommy is left with little or no time to tend to herself. Imagine the sweet respite on her face when she unboxes Votre’s Body Shaping Kit
with body oil plus lotion, infused with botanical molecules and herbal extracts to reduce excess fat and aid metabolism. Another crowd pleaser with busy-bee moms is Soulflower’s Romance Heart Bathset
for a spa-like tranquil experience all in the comforts of her own home.
It will be a real shocker if you didn’t have one Type-A personality bestie in your circle of peeps. This career-oriented, Mercedes driving woman will be found head deep typing into a smartphone oblivious to any hottie buying her drinks at the bar even during a gal’s night out around town! How to please her? Here are two sure shot winners, Philips HP8647 Hair Straightener, Hair Dryer, Curler
and Dafni The Original Hair Straightening Ceramic Brush
! She’d be dialling you at 7 am just to say thank you as she effortlessly flaunts her ‘I-woke-up-like-this’ mane to board meetings and spontaneous rendezvous with the VP’S.
The Makeup Junkie
Show her what love really is with picks from a must-have essential beauty edit.
