I am so excited and flattered that I got to appear on Studio5 today and talk about 10 Just Because Girlfriend gifts!!
It’s a great topic because:
1) We’ve all been there…at one time or another we want to show a friend we love them and are thinking about them
2) We all have a limited budget (at least I do!)
I came up with 10 thoughtful and fun gifts that won’t break the bank. These are gifts that you can feel good about giving and that would be so much fun to receive. I’ve made a free printable gift tags for each gift, to make it even easier to give your BFF, woot! Type in your email and I will send you an password so you can access the exclusive Gifty Girl printable library where you can download and print all sorts of fun gift tags!
Let’s talk girlfriend gifts!
I think everyone has a soundtrack for their life. Don’t you sometimes hear a song that immediately takes you back to a certain time in your life or reminds you of a specific person? A fun “Just Because” gift idea would be a soundtrack of your friendship! Songs that remind you of them. Or if your friend needs cheering up, you could do a CD of happy songs! It is SO so simple. First you need to have the ITunes store downloaded onto a computer with a CD burner. Then you choose “File” then “new” then “Playlist.” You can add songs already in your iTunes library or purchase new songs then click “edit playlist” to add them to the playlist. Once you have all of the songs you want on the CD, then you click on “File” then “Burn Playlist to Disc.” If you’d rather send the songs electronically, iTunes makes it easy to gift songs too. In the iTunes store when you go to buy a song, just select “gift this song” on the download drop menu next to the price. You can only send one song at a time though. What I would do is first send an email or text to my friend explaining that the songs are coming and why they remind me of her. Then I would send some great tunes, wouldn’t that be fun to get?? Print off this fun “You’re my Jam” tag to go along with it!
2. Swig Cookie Mix/Swig Refillable mug
3. Bath Bombs
4. Start where you are Journal
6. Personalized memory Chatbook
8. Fruit infused water bottle
Another gift idea is this fruit infused water bottle. Staying hydrated helps boost your mood and giving your friend a water bottle that makes that more enjoyable is win-win. You add the fruit to the center part then let it infuse in the water for several hours. I made this bottle tag that you can add to this gift that reminds your friend to call you or text you in between hydrating!
9. A great book
If you have a friend who is a reader it is fun to pass along a great read. I chose The Enchanted April which is a sweet and light read about four women who rent an Italian castle together. Some other happy and light book options are: The Rosie Project, A Man called Ove, The Storied Life of AJ Fickry, Cold Comfort Farm, Charms for the Easy Life, and Persian Pickle Club. I would personally LOVE a book dropped off at my house!
