Publish date:

The next part of our 2018 holiday gift guide commences with a series of gifts that are awesome enough to be worthy of your best friend. You know, the one who is always there for you throughout the year, and who really, really deserves a killer gift for all the times she's had your back.

Read on for the gifts that are so great that you'll want to keep them all instead of giving them away (but you won't, because you're such a great friend):

For the Unicorn-Lover Who Needs a Nap

For the girl who's always on the go who hasn't let go of her whimsical side, this unicorn hood travel pillow is a great buy! It's incredibly cute, and it allows for a little privacy from fellow holiday jet-setters if your best friend isn't afraid of a little attention. 

For the Astrology Buff Who Also Loves Personality Types

The Astrology of You and Me is a great book with a calming blue and white color scheme, detailed drawings, and of course, some great advice on how to improve every relationship in your life. Whether it's your work, personal, or love life that you want to focus on, this book has advice for you! If your best friend loves reading her daily horoscope, this book will take it to the next level. 

For the Strategic Self-Care Lover

This 30 Days Challenge Cube is a cute addition to anyone's nightstand or desk. If your friend is starting a new self-care routine, while staying true to their type-A schedule, this little challenge cube is a great gift. Plus it offers lots of opportunities to use cheesy puns in a gift tag or card since this cube has an adorable leaf print to "help your friend turn a new leaf"!

These cubes come in many variations - I also recommend checking out the Happiness Cube!

For the MUA-in-Training Who Loves Children

This Journey Eyeshadow Quad contains four of ColourPop's signature Super Shock Shadows, a cult-favorite among makeup lovers for the high quality at a low price. Aside from the amazing color payoff with a single swipe, a part of your purchase will also go to the Make-A-Wish Foundation. If you want to add a little extra something to your gift for your friend, check out the Make-A-Wish site for ways to help support this amazing charity. 

For the Future Yoga Instructor on a Budget

These Yoga Dice are a steal at under $15. These dice include a different yoga position on each side. If your friend is trying to unplug from technology and focus on mindfulness, these dice are a fun option! They're also way less expensive than a yoga studio membership.

For the Japanese Food Lover

This DIY Mochi Ice Cream Kit is perfect for your friend who is always spending too much on ice cream mochi. Pro tip: many of your typical Western grocery stores overcharge for ice cream mochi. Try going to H-Mart or another Asian grocery store if you have one in your area. If you don't have that option, Trader Joe's also offers ice cream mochi at a more reasonable price than My/Mo Mochi Ice Cream. 

For the Girl Who's Impossible to Shop For

Everyone loves an iconic movie moment, and the narwhal from Elf will never get old. This Bye Buddy Sweatshirt is cute, funny, and perfect to snuggle up in on a chilly winter day.
