Are you in the swing of Christmas shopping? All done? Halfway there? Or is Christmas Eve at 3pm more your thang?
Whatever your shopping style, make sure you remember to pick up a little something-something for the girl/s that make your life better!
If you’re not sure where to start, I’ve got you covered. From sweet, affordable little tokens that you can buy in bulk for the whole gang to gorgeous, unique gifts that you might splurge on for that one special friend, you’re bound to find something here that will help you tick at least one more name off your Christmas shopping list… and that’s the dream, ain’t it?
I had a lot of fun putting this list together – these products are so lovely, I’d personally like to find one of each under my Christmas tree on the 25th!
I’m also super excited that almost half the items below are from a bunch of female-run businesses who are local to me in Perth, Western Australia! These are some absolutely FANTASTIC small businesses, and buying one of their gorgeous products means supporting an actual human being who’s just doing what they love. And don’t fret, international readers, as I made sure to only showcase businesses who can ship internationally. Win-win!

Show your bestie some love and gift her something from this list. People are already jealous of your friendship, let them be jealous of your awesome Christmas gift for her, too.
Let them be jealous. I’d like that on a shirt.
If smashed avo brunches are a significant part of your relationship, what better way to celebrate it than with this spunky mug? You would be forgiven for wanting to snap up a second one for yourself, by the way.
Fact: everyone loves tacos. Second fact: everyone wants to adorn their feet with tacos. Third fact: you will be the coolest friend in town if you slap a pair of these on your bestie’s feet this Christmas. If for some crazy reason tacos ain’t her thing, there are a ton of designs. I’m almost equally obsessed with these corgi socks, donut socks and guinea pig socks.
Prince and Tower Scrunchies
Did you hear? Everyone’s favourite hair accessory from the ’90s is back in style! The selection of scrunchies at Prince and Tower is so fun and fresh, and they have the CUTEST selection of Christmas scrunchies (!) My favourites are the green spotty scrunchie and the stripe scrunchie (both pictured above), though the pink gingham scrunchie kinda has my heart too if I’m being real with you.
This pretty piece is the perfect accessory for your bestie to keep on the nightstand and store her bobby pins, hair lackies, lip balm, earrings, and any other daily-use items that are great to have on-hand. It’s super pretty AND solves that epic nightstand clutter problem so many of us have.
Bold Activewear Tropicana Booty Shorts
Guys, I don’t want to alarm you but these shorts have flippin’ FLAMINGOS on them. And that’s not even the main reason I love them. The whole collection at Bold Activewear comes in a fantastic range of sizes for every girl. So no matter what size you and your bestie’s butts are, you can totally twin in these shorts while you pound the pavement or chat on the treadmills or push your prams side-by-side. You’ve got options.
We’re adults; it’s time to stop putting our flowers in mason jars and start putting them in stunning receptacles like these gorgeous vases (they come in a set of 5!) This is the gift that can keep on giving, too, if you keep filling them with flowers for her throughout the year!
Sante Wellness Charcoal Cleanse
For the bestie who loves a bit of a pamper sesh, this charcoal cleanse is perfection. You’ve got two options – a 1-day detox and a 3-day detox. The charcoal claims to draw toxins out of you, all from the comfort of your bath. And I’m a super fan of their beautiful minimalist packaging.
Quirky Eyeglass holder
For a glasses-wearing bestie, you can’t go wrong with an adorable little owl pal for her to perch her specs on when they’re not in use. This cheeky chap also happens to be a pencil holder, making him extra useful.
Blooming Minds “A Year To Bloom” Journal
This gorgeous journal is a guided 52-week journey through activities and reflections in order to promote positive emotional well-being. Perfect for the bestie on a journey of self-discovery, starting a new venture, or just looking for new ways to be mindful. A digital version is available too!
Indoor Succulent Planters
Aren’t these the prettiest things you’ve ever seen?! Succulents are so hot (and adorable) right now, so giving someone an opportunity to bring SIX new ones into their home is one of the nicest things you can do! I’m obsessed with these gorgeous pots, but there are plenty of similarly lovely sets out there.
Loulou and Mo Evil Queens Clutch
This is one funky purse! Who wouldn’t want a bunch of glam Disney villains plastered all over their bag on a night out? It’s the kind of purse people can’t help commenting on (in a good way!), and will no doubt ask your friend “Where did you get it from?!” at which point she can bat her eyelashes and say, “My bestie gave it to me.”
He’s just the right mix of quirky and super cute, and he’s ridiculously useful too! I can almost guarantee your bestie has nothing like this in her home, making him a perfectly unique and awesome gift.
Coeur Brush Magnetic Oval Brush Set
These rose gold and white brushes are so beautiful and luxurious! If your bestie is a make-up fiend, you can’t go wrong with a luxury brush set. Coeur know their brushes, and they offer free shipping worldwide. PLUS as a lovely bonus, they are offering our readers a 15% discount using the code BFF15 (valid until December 31st, 11.59pm AWST).
I hesitated to put two coffee cups in this round-up but I just couldn’t choose between this colourful piece and the cheeky avocado one up top. This will pack a punch from the moment your bestie unwraps it and feasts her eyes on it, and it will look fabulous in her kitchen. Probably.
Communified “Emily” Print
Each print at Communified is a celebration of a real-life child suffering with a serious or life-threatening illness or disability. These beautiful pieces are named after the child they were designed for, and tell a part of their story. Read Emily’s story (and buy her lovely print) here. All proceeds support this project, as well as other Communified projects, making it a unique gift for the friend who likes to give back.
Earrings for the whole gang
Is there anything better than a girl tribe in matchy-matchy earrings? I think not. My sister and her besties actually have a tradition of buying each other matching “gang earrings” for birthdays and Christmases, and that’s pretty adorable. I love these simple wooden heart studs – I mean, who wouldn’t these appeal to!?
