With my 21st birthday coming up in mid September I have been thinking about things I want and thought it would actually make a great post. Not only are a few of these on my list (*cough* Olivia Pope wine glasses *cough*) but I think they would make great birthday presents for any girl. I included things ranging from fairly cheap to more expensive and items for various age ranges. Enjoy!
NAILPOLISH // This is a super simple gift and perfect for almost every girl. Pick out a few of her favorite colors and tie them off if a cute bag and you are good to go. You could even make a DIY "At home manicure set" for her!
ON - THE - GO CHARGER // A true necessity for a girl on the go, a student, or a travel fanatic. I love the gold spots and this one and almost wish I owned it. I have a travel charger and boy of boy has that things saved my life numerous times.
WATERBOTTLE // Whether they be outdoorsy, athletic, or just someone who likes to drink water (or any beverage really) on the regular a nice water bottle is always a great option. Some of the stainless steel ones can get pretty up there but boy do they keep a beverage cold for hours on end.
MUG // For the coffee and tea lover mugs are an addiction. I collect the "Around the world" Starbucks mugs but really all mugs are just the cutest things ever. I freaking love the classic Anthropology initial mug too.
DIAMOND EARRINGS // Every girl should have a simple pair of diamond stud earrings because they look good on every occasion with every outfit. Again, these can vary in price but I love the size of these Kate Spade ones. If you can't decide on the perfect earring pair I think any form of jewelry is such a perfect birthday gift!
BODY WASH AND LOTION // This is a harder one to buy for someone as scents are very specific but I love the idea of making a spa time gift (like the manicure set above) for someone. I think it would be so cute to add a magazine, a loofa, and even some bath salts to a basket.
STATIONARY // Once again, a staple that every girl should have. I love sending handwritten notes to people because I think its way more personal than an email or text. Plus, whoever you send them to can then use them as decoration (I know I do!). Whether it be an adorable monogram or a simple floral pattern this is classic gift your bestie can use for any occasion.
WINE GLASSES // Obviously this one is for those 21+. I love the idea of buying monogrammed or decorated ones from Etsy as well! Depending on your friend's favorite beverage, you could opt for martini glasses or champagne flutes to celebrate her big day. I would opt for the Olivia Pope wine glass because... uhm... well... Olivia Pope.
PICTURE FRAME // This is a gift that I usually give all my friends and have been doing ever since I was a little kid. You basically buy a chic frame and insert a photo of you and your bestie together in it. This way they get the gift and a reminder of an amazing memory.
PAJAMAS // Whether it be college sweats or this adorable seersucker set, pajamas are something people rarely buy for themselves because they kind of get lost behind all the other cute clothes. But hey pajamas can be cute! So why not buy a cute pair for your bestie with maybe even some comfy slippers or a fuzzy blanket.
CANDLE // This is another tricky one and should only be done if you know what scents your friend likes. I just bought a nice candle for my friend's birthday because I knew how addicted she was to the color aqua as well as anything ocean scented. She loved it!
HEADPHONES // For the techie who also loves some bling. I've been eyeing these headphones for the longest time and really want them for when I go abroad! While they are the most expensive item I think they would make the perfect item for a few people split. These are something that every time she wears them she will think of you.
What is on your birthday wish list?
