Christmas Gifting for the GFs

by Kir

A few years ago my girlfriends and I decided to give each other our favorite beauty treats for Christmas. We packaged up our “little trade secrets” in the form of lip glosses, shine serums, body balms & hair ties.   It was such a success that three years later, I’m still compiling my favorites and presenting them at Christmas. Move on over Miss Oprah.

Yes, these little luxuries can add up, but fear not, tis the season of value sets!  I buy a few of my favorite items in gift packs, break them apart and reassemble them for the GFs on my nice (and naughty) list. Sephora, Ulta, Amazon (especially if you have Prime!) and Victoria’s Secret are all great resources for the perfect Custom Girlfriend Goody Bucket!

It’s still very personal because, done right, you’re giving your girls a piece of you. Plus gift packs come with a variety of shades and scents so you can pair the right color and fragrance with each girl. Tip: get a pack with all one item (lip glosses,  pencils, oils) so it looks premium – not like you piled in a bunch of free samples!

Time is short and the holiday season is approaching at an alarming rate, but no worries! Here is a cheat sheet of goodies I personally swear by. And I put links to everything so you won’t even have to leave the house – thank you online shopping!!!
