2010 Gift Guide: Best Girlfriend Gifts

Dec 20, 2010

Why does Christmas always seem to sneak up on us? One minute, we start to notice decorations going up in the mall and Christmas music being played on the radio. But then before we know it, there are merely days to find the perfect present for our friends and family! Where does the time go? Luckily, we know how easy it is to get stuck with no present with your girlfriend at the very last minute. That’s why we’ve compiled a list of the best girlfriend gifts which are thoughtful, creative and are sure to please. From rain boots with a dog print, a watch locket necklace to a Glee Season 1 Gift Set, there’s something for everyone - even the pickiest girlfriend!

Quirky Clutch Bag/Wallet

One thing that most girls love is purses, wallets and things of that nature. The more unique and attractive it is, the better. Bright colours, cute details like bows or cool designs are a must if you’re going to get one as a gift for your girlfriend. This great little red bow clutch bag from Urban Outfitters can be used as a wallet or a clutch bag, is perfect for the festive season and is a great party accessory! Depending on taste, go for floral, black leather with studs, paisley, whatever you think will suit her style best!

Locket Watch Necklace

A locket necklace has old-school vintage appeal and is sure to be something that your girlfriend would be surprised that you picked out all by yourself! This unique locket necklace from ModCloth.com is actually a watch in disguise! When it’s closed, it looks like an antique silver locket. Open it and you’ve got yourself a cool vintage style watch.

Unique Sweater

If you want to go with clothing - it’s safe to stick to sweaters or tee-shirts. Pick one with a loose fit so you will know it’s going to be comfortable, something easy she can throw on with jeans and look good. This Minnie Mouse sequin sweater from Forever21 is a great example of a basic grey sweater with a unique detailing that makes it special and girlfriend-gift-worthy!

You should be nice to her. If you have to break the news gently don't make her feel bad just talk to her about and see what she says

My bff and I were best friends but weve grown apart im getting older and she still wants to do kid stuff I have new friends now I feel like im being mean to her but like doesn't she get the memo I feel both guilty and mad:} Gosh.... put the shoe on  the other foot and see how would you feel if your bff done this on you. You has been bffs for the long time [Im guessing] and your maturing faster than her.  I agrees you are being mean to her if you doesnt discuss how your feeling with her and ignoring / avoiding her or whatever your doing.    She has been the good friend to you and she deserves to understand if you is growing up faster than her.  I really feels sad for how she could be feeling right now. She didnt do anything wrong.  You changed. Not her. Please be nice to your friend/ex friend and let her down gently [if you really has to] ^^ Me opinion

Don't worry about it. Friends grow apart. That's how things go. Just talk to her about it, she'll understand.

Yes and no. Parents should be a bit strict on you if they care about you.  If they care about you they would be strict.
