So Galentine’s Day is here and if you’re the type to gift your pals something nice, this post is for you. If you procrastinated (like I have), this post is for you. If you’re looking to give a gift that keeps on giving even in your absence, this is definitely up your alley. I’ve curated a guide that speaks to every type of friend you may have in your life. I hope you find it extremely helpful as I had a lot of fun putting it together for you. Let’s go!

  1. The Friend With The Pearly Whites (+ attitude to go with it)


This is the friend that doesn’t hesitate to let you know that flossing and mouthwash should be a part of your routine, because your smile is what’s going to draw people in. This is the friend that flossing and brushes after every meal and sees the dentist 10 times per year.

With that said, treat them to a sparkly white smile with Colgate Optic White Platinum High Impact White Toothpaste. This Colgate Optic White product delivers 4 shades, visibly whiter teeth in 6 weeks, starting in just 3 days*.  Not only did you help cut their dentist visits in half, they can now see the results from the comfort of their own hope. They’re going to love you… FOREVER!

PS: This is available pretty much everywhere. So if you’re meeting up with her for dinner tonight, you can stop into your local pharmacy and grab it on the go. You’re welcome.

2. The Friend Who “Goes” A lot (and EVERYWHERE)

Let’s face it! Everyone poops, okay! It’s not taboo. It’s perfectly normal. As for your friend, it’s not. It seems almost as if they’re always going and I’m not talking numero uno. I mean, heavy duty number two and sometimes, we don’t need that ish (pun-intended) in our own bathrooms. With gifting Poo-Pourri, you guarantee not only is your bathroom smelling fresh once they leave, it’s something they can carry around in their bags and use anywhere like a restaurant, yoga studio, movie theatre, and maybe even a circus. I don’t know. But it’s a handy-dandy efficient gift that helps everyone!

3. The Emotional Friend

This might be a little sensitive for a few folks, so I’ll try not to be mean on this topic because I can also be the emotional friend. You know, the friend who is always going through something. The one who refuses to go to therapy after they’ve already admitted that they do need it to work through their trauma but want to tough it out because they want to be considered the strong friend? Yeah, that one. Gift them a month of TalkSpace. TalkSpace is perfect that the person on-the-go or would like to try non-traditional therapy (aka sitting on the couch with your arms folded). Not only are you able to choose between texting, video, and phone options for your sessions, you can pick and choose your therapist if the current one isn’t working out for you. Click HERE to start the process. PS: You get $50 off your next month. You know what they say! Mental Self-Care Is The Best Care!

4. The Beauty Guru Friend

Well, I’m that friend who will bother you about your skincare routine because I’m tired of looking at your loose pores and messy pimples. Friends don’t let friends have bad skin and I learned that from my Fairy Skin Mother (@thisthatbeauty). Look her up, you’ll thank me later. Anyways, I’ve been using this Biore pore strip and baby!!! Baby!!! Read my review here but if you’re trying to cop the toner and strip, check it out here. Your skin will feel like a baby’s ass and trust, you will see the difference. “Working like a super-magnet, they lift out even the most stubborn blackheads and deep down dirt & oil that can lead to complexion problems. YIKES! Formulated with Witch Hazel, known to tighten pores & for its astringent properties, these strips deep clean, remove blackheads, refine pores, and help prevent future breakouts”. That’s enough mumbo jumbo for now, cop you some. Gift me some. I won’t be mad.

5. The Friend Who Owns 100 Pairs Of Shoes

Yes, I’ll admit. I have a problem. I am also that friend who has tons of shoes or should I say, used to have TONS of shoes. My last ex realized my love for shoes and signed me up for a subscription service called JustFab and boy, that was a great investment on their part. THANKS PAST BAE! You da bomb! Just by being a part of this service opened me up to see and own so many awesome and unique styles that I felt confident walking into a room because no one else would be wearing my shoes. I’ve been a JustFab consumer for years and recently became a JustFab ambassador because I believe in their products and what they stand for. So here, bless her with a pair of shoes… make sure it’s one that compliments her personality.

6. The Engaged Friend

So your friend is engaged. Congrats! You’re finally about to make Maid of Honor or not. Either way, you need to set your friend up with a successful list of vendors for their special day. I’d be lying to you if I didn’t mention that I didn’t know these people personally. I do! However, that doesn’t change their levels of creativity, compassion, and making your day the most memorable for the rest of your life. Meet Amy Anaiz Photography, Parchment by Dami, and MaeB Films. They are the wedding photography, videography, and luxury stationery trio everyone needs. I’ve worked closely with both Amy and Nikki (of MaeB) and their professionalism, attention to detail, and love for what they do is unmatched. Dami’s work with luxury invitations and fine stationery will blow your mind and make you drool. Your guests will probably keep their stationery/invitations in a glass case afterwards. As for your video and photos, don’t be shocked if it goes viral. When the time comes for me to get hitched, I’ll be calling on their services. PERIODT!

7. The Friend Who Works Out EVERYDAY! Literally!

Alright! Fine! I own a lot of workout gear from Fabletics. Shoot me! I mean, it lifts my butt, makes my boobs look perkier and it fits PERFECTLY. I’ve used their products for yoga, running, hiking, and even the gym. They have everything and anything you need from bras, shorts, leggings, the whole shebang! Plus when you sign up, you get two leggings for $24! TWENTY. FOUR. DOLLARS! Now, when I say it’s good, I actually mean they’re great and if you haven’t order yet, you’re late.

8. The Friend Who’s ALWAYS LATE! Like, REALLY!?

If you’ve got that friend that says, “hey! I’m 5 minutes away” when technically they just stepped out of the shower, THIS IS THE PERFECT GIFT! Shinola is pretty cool with their details and sleek look (check my review here) but what I love the most about it that this friend needs is the fact that it tells accurate time. Which means, they shouldn’t be late! And if you are that friend, it’s 2019! Do better!

9. The Friend That Reads.

So if a human could turn into a book worm when they read 100 books per year, this would be your friend. And there’s nothing better than getting a gift card to an online bookstore where they can shop their hearts out! You can’t mess this one up. It’s way too easy. Not to mention, you can just buy a digital card online and send it to them. Talk about saving paper!


Well, that’s my round up! What’d I miss? Sound off below!

Until then,

Besos Bellas!
