Tips for shopping for your bestie
hat kind of inside jokes do you and your bestie have? Are you taco Tuesday queens?Did something super embarrassing happen that only the two of you know about? Get her something to commemorate that! If the two of your are Starbucks queens, get her a Starbucks mug from her favorite city. If her pants split at a party one night, buy her some granny panties just in case it happens again, but also throw in a gift card to her favorite clothing store. Is she always taking naps? Make her an energy basket complete with energy drinks, coffee beans, and a Netflix gift card because we all know a good Netflix Original will keep you up all night! It's clever, it's silly, it's fun, and it's personal. She'll love knowing that you really took the time to think about her.

3. Denik Notebooks
I have a thing about friends and notebooks. We all have a notebook/journal addiction. I honestly don't use my journals for anything but taking quick notes. When I was a teenager I actually used journals for, well, journaling. I still collect them, though. They are so pretty and cute and there are so many different kinds. Every girl knows what I mean. Denik has some of the cutest notebooks and sketchbooks you'll ever find.

Give her girly gifts, like Sephora makeup, beauty tools, and accessories. We all love Sephora.
