1. Hair dryer brush
Top pick: One step hair dryer brush
No shaking your head vigorously with this tool. Your bestie can get the perfect blowout way faster than with a regular blower.
2. Reusable makeup remover pads
Top pick:Face Halo makeup remover pads
No makeup wipes? No worries. Those things can be expensive if you add up 365 days of makeup. Not to mention that one-use wipes aren't great for the environment. Throw these re-usable pads in the wash after you scrub away Saturday night, and come Monday, they can be used all over again. It's that simple!
Top pick: Video Projector HD
Pop a projector in a stocking and give the gift of a movie-marathon sleepover. Add fairy lights and some blankets, so your bestie can snuggle right in.
4. Reusable cup
Top pick: Bino Cup
Give the gift of recycling. Your coffee addict friend will be doing some good for the planet with every iced latte and will appreciate the 20 cents saved at the local cafe.
5. Stick-on nails
Who else remembers these from when they were nine years old? Stick-on nails have had a glow up and are perfect to add pizazz to any outfit.
6. Bright handbag
Top pick: Into the city handbag
Your pal can never have enough handbags. Variety is key...plus you can borrow it anytime.
7. Magnetic eyelash kit
Picture this, you DON'T have to endure the struggle of gluing fake eyelashes on your bestie for an hour. She can do it while you fix your last few curls. Maybe you'll be ready on time for once.
9. Touch-up razor
Top pick: Revlon Beauty Tool Face Defuzzers
Gift your gal pal a defuzzer. This precise shaving tool will have their skin smooth and their highlights will POP even more.

We all need help when it comes to making sure our pores are looking perfect. This won't leave any dirty residue and will leave your bestie glowing.

Out with the technology and in with the technology. Go retro and print your best photos. The 573,902 other shots can stay in the cloud.
12. Bamboo Toothbrush
Top pick: My White Secret bamboo toothbrushes
Face it, they look chic. It's a toothbrush that's designer AND environmentally friendly!

These are miracle workers. Pass on the pleasure of having clear skin. Tell your gal to pop one on overnight and they won't have to stress with any redness the next day. Shout out to my bestie for getting me onto these.
Top pick: Gucci Bloom
A good gift is one that is needed and not necessarily something your bestie would treat themselves to. Plus, perfume runs out so quickly! This soon-to-be-signature scent includes jasmine and tuberose. Not overly sweet, with woody undertones, everyone will be asking for a spritz.
21. Bucket hat
Top pick: Santa Monica Linen Bucket Hat
This is the trending trend of the trends. Say "trend" again. Staying on the theme of sun safety, grab your pal a bucket hat. Face it, they're super cute.
22. Glossy Lips
Out with the matte look and in with the glossy 2000s' vibes. Gift your friend the most kissable lips this Christmas.
23. IPL Laser hair removal
Top pick: Selfie skin at-home IPL Handset
Forget uncomfy (and expensive!) laser sessions at the salon. The IPL Laser hair removal handset is the gift that keeps on giving.
Your pals will thank you later. No, seriously.
25. Face mask
Top pick: Sand & Sky Porefining Face Mask
A face-cooling mask equals ultimate relaxation. Plus, it's a great li'l stocking filler for the friends.
