Do you and your bestie enjoy heading out for cocktails together? She can make her own at home with UME Plum Liqueur, a delightfully tart, mildly sweet plum spirit. Plum, dark cherry, grape, green apple, and citrus form the fruit-forward flavor base of UME, which is combined with a six-times distilled grain-neutral spirit made from corn. UME is half of the sugar of traditional liqueurs and apéritifs and has an alcohol content of 17%.
Chilled over ice or mixed into your favorite cocktail, this liqueur with it's royal purple hue is sure to kick her drinks up a notch!
Is she the kind of lady who loves to bake? My besties are always in the kitchen creating yummy foods for their families and friends, so I know any of them would love a Silpat Perfect Cookie Baking Mat. This reusable mat takes the place of parchment paper and helps you to bake perfect cookies every time! Get a Sil-Band too for storage!
When my friends and I get together, we always have tea. This Winter Teas Gift Sampler box from Adagio Teas makes a great gift for your gal friends and bonus - it's a super affordable gift too, priced at under $15!
I love the gift of a great scented candle! A wonderful scent really sets the mood in a home and DW Home has some of the best, highest-quality candles on the market!
These candles come in tons and tons of scents, both traditional scents and new and unique ones like Chocolate Dipped Bananas, Hot Dog, Pineapple Pizza, and even Waffle Cone! The packaging is clever and fun too, likes the Bubble Tea line of candles featured below!
The perfect pjs for any gal pal are these super soft Soft Jams from Duluth Trading Co. I love how the brushed jersey (with a touch of spandex) feels like a fabric hug every time you put it on – it's seriously soft and cozy against your skin and cut with lots of room for maximum comfort.
Available in a winter scenic or garden floral print, she will LOVE these pajamas!
At the end of a long day (or week) I absolutely love soaking in a nice hot tub with a bath bomb!
Grace & Stella bath bombs are made with shea butter, cocoa, aragon oil, and olive oil to help nourish and moisturize your skin. This set comes with 12 delightful scents - gift the whole box to one friend or open the box and divide the bath bombs among your friends. You could pair them with a new pair of slippers or warm fuzzy socks.
What gal doesn't love a new tote bag?! I am loving the Cecilia Tote from Lazarus Artisan Goods!
The Cecilia is 100% real leather. It has a hard base and internal pockets (1 large, 4 small) for organization, this tote also has a chic strap to keep your bag securely closed. It's available in 6 colors.
The best part about this bag is that your purchase of it is supporting students in Honduras. Through Lazarus Academy, students receive three years of vocational training while obtaining their high school education. When they graduate, they have a marketable skill they can use to support themselves and their families for years to come. You can read more about it here.
Can this mug BE any cooler? If, like me, you and your friends have been binging Friends after the sad and sudden passing of Matthew Perry, this mug is the perfect gift! Every day when I sip my latte from this mug I think about some of my favorite scenes and lines from the show.
I know I am not the only woman who is cold basically all winter long. PediPocket's lengthy design keeps every inch of you warm-- from head to toe -- with an extra-special foot pocket for those chillier nights. Plus, its lightweight construction makes it the perfect companion for all seasons. It's available in more than 21 colors and 3 sizes so you can find just the perfect one for your bestie!
If your close female friend lives in a different state than you and you're looking for a gift that can be delivered directly to her, check out Batch & Box!
When you ship a box of cookies from Batch & Box, it will arrive with a complimentary sprig of greenery (all boxes ordered during December) with a seasonal box sleeve that features holiday and snowflake prints. You have the option to opt for a red ribbon instead of the traditional black bow PLUS you can record a video message to your recipient delivered via a QR code printed on the packaging (available year-round)!

As a mom of 7 I am pretty busy and don't get to do it often, but when I can carve out a little bit of time, I always find it quite relaxing to sit down and color a picture. Maria Trolle has a number of coloring books with the most beautiful and whimsical illustrations! Pair this book with a new set of colored pencils for a great gift!
Grab this beautiful tote and use it instead of a gift bag she'll just end up throwing away. This bag is perfect for reusing as a library bag, grocery store bag, lunch bag, and so many more things! It features the quote: “With freedom, books, flowers, and the moon, who could not be happy?” --Oscar Wilde
