1. Lip gloss
Make sure your bestie is smooch ready this Valentine's Day with a new lip product. The super pigmented and shiny Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb Cream tops our wish list this year.
Your pal will think of you every time they give themselves a little spritz of their new fave perfume. We've been loving Perfect by Marc Jacobs lately. It's a modern and feminine scent with fresh floral mixed with juicy notes of rhubarb, daffodil and almond milk. Yum!
4. Cute kicks
Ensure your bestie is looking fly this V-Day with a fresh pair of shoes. The Made With Love remix of the classic Converse Chuck Taylor All Star high tops are an absolute VIBE. Available in black and red, they also have super cute embroidered detailing and a super cute heart design on the outsole. These limited edition sneakers were made especially for Valentine's Day, but you can rock 'em all year round.

5. Phone case
Best friends don't let best friends take basic selfies. They also make sure that the phone those selfies are being taken on look super sweet too. A brand new phone case will keep your BFF's phone looking cute and their selfies looking fire. You could get one personalised with their name or star sign or you can just choose a print that you know they'll lurve. There's no shortage of places to pick up phone accessories, but we recommend starting with Wildflower Cases if you're looking to narrow down your search.

There's a nice mix of shimmery and matte shades, making it the perfect palette whether your bestie is doing a subtle day look or going full glam.
