So it was my birthday a month ago but I wanted to put together a creative post on some of the seriously creative gifts I got from my friends. These are a combination of ideas from what I personally got as gifts as well as some other ideas I came across that I would be super happy to receive as well (wink wink nudge nudge for anyone that wants to get me something next year lol 😉
Ok so let’s just get right into it…
1) PUG JAR WITH 22 BROWNIES IN IT
LOL GUYS, this is exactly what it sounds like. My dear friend Angela got me this because she knows how much I love pugs and how much I love food. YOU CAN NOT GO WRONG WITH THIS GIFT LOL CRYING FOREVER. You could even buy a plain jar and decorate it yourself with things your friend personally likes and bake something and put it in there! This pug jar is from Home Sense I believe (correct me if I’m wrong). This new member in my family is named Puggy and will basically be my pet pug until I move out and get a real one 🙂
2) UNICORN SNOT
Yes yes, that’s what I’m talkin’ about. I remember seeing this product in one of those buzzfeed articles on quirky gift ideas or something like that and remember wanting to get this unicorn snot and volia lovely friend Alison read my mind and got it for me! I love the name of this product, it’s just like weird and a normal person would be like k wtf is this what am I gunna do with this? But I’m here like uhhhh EVERYTHING. Dude you can wear this to music festivals (obv) but I mean you want popping highlight? This snot got you covered tho. Having a bad day and want to feel special? Just bath yourself in this unicorn snot tho :,)

3) PATCHES N PINS FOR SHORTS
You know sometimes you want just a pair of really decked out, crazy pair of shorts right? Or is it just me I dunno. Get your friend some shorts (if you know her size) and buy some fun patches or pins and decorate them! The things I have in this picture are the Old Fort Camp Patch and the Queen Bee Pin from Buzz Greetings, super cute. You can also get really cool patches from Amazon as well, I found a pink banana one before 🙂
4) DIY BRANDY MELVILLE SIGN PLUS SQUISH CANDY
Yeah, no I would not recommend spending like $1000000 for a Brandy Melville sign no matter now effin gorgeous and cool they are. BUT HA, we gunna hack the system and just DIY the hell out of it. My little cousin made this sign for me inspired by Brandy Melville and I think SHE totally killed it! This is a thoughtful DIY gift that any friend would appreciate you making. Pair it with some cutie candy from Squish, which is kinda like a high class vegan candy store (ou sew fancy I know) and they have little gift packages you can purchase directly. BAM perfect combo gift right there.
5) BALL OUT WITH JO MALONE
So this is my last gift idea and it’s for the ballers out there that wanna pamper their besties. Jo Malone is a beauty brand established in the UK that focuses on layering scents to help create your own personal fragrance. My personal FAV creation from Jo Malone was the Nectarine Blossom & Honey Body Butter as my base, which I also topped off with the same scent and a touch of the English Pear & Freesia. Message to my future boyfriend – this gift idea is for you thanks beb.
And in the end, it doesn’t matter how much you spend on your friend’s birthday gift because it is honestly the thought that counts. Even a sincere card is just as heart warming as any other gift. Like for instance some people say gift cards are not “good gifts”, but one of my best friends got me a gift card to starbucks and I bless her soul for that because I NEED THAT SHIT EVERYDAY!!! And my other best friend took me out for dinner and it was the time spent with her that made it a beautiful gift. Hopefully this post gave you some ideas on what to get your friend for their birthday and apologies on my whack writing style in this post LOL it’s kinda funny tbh I like writing blog posts like this. Hope you enjoyed this one and let me know if you want to read more posts similar to this!!!
