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.

Glee Season 1 Gift Set

If your girlfriend loves to watch Glee, she will love you for buying her this awesome Gleek Gift Set with Journal! It’s the kind of show that you can watch over and over and sing along with all the songs. This way, she can watch an episode whenever she wants!

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!

Get her some fun, fuzzy bootie slippers and a pair of cozy flannel pajamas and she will be thrilled! We can pretty much guarantee those faux fur slippers will be a hot item in her house - everyone will want a pair!

One of our favorite things about the holiday season is that makeup brands all come out with an affordable miniature set versions and palettes of their most popular full-size products.

I don't know you and I'm not exactly sure how you act, but being friendly is definitely the way to go. Don't change yourself for ANYBODY. Especially someone who you don't need to impress. Speaking of impressing, don't try, do. If you are telling a story and that happens to impress them than that's great! But don't go out of your way to try to make yourself look awesome because I'm sure you already are. Be yourself. But the most important thug now you can do is not try to make a million friends. Because personally I would rather have one AWESOME friend than a million ok friends. I hope this helped. :)

Be yourself and most important of all, be kind. You will get great friends by doing so. Being popular doesn't always mean being nice; sometimes people tend to be rude and bossy to be "popular" and that isn't good. But if you participate or even start a group at school, at the library or somewhere important in the community (community service like the Rotary Club is a good way to start for kids and teens) can be a great way to meet friends and share your happiness.

You can write a note or a card to him. I'm sure he'll understand. And of course if needed see a doctor so that he'll know what to do to deal with those headaches.

You won't want to be, it's exhausting. Just be happy the way you are and don't care about what others think or say about you.
