Best gals are like sisters regardless of differences. They are your brilliant source of advice and you’re confident sharing your dreams, plans, worries and successes to them. You enjoy their company and you have a great time together. They want the best for you as much as you want the best for them. That being said, it only makes sense to show your love by giving them something they’ll like this holiday.
I understand that finding gifts for your besties can get overwhelming. To make your search easier, I’ve listed some awesome gift ideas to fit every personality.

It’s available in different sizes depending on how big the user want the curls/wave to be. The price ranges from 500php (10.60USD) to 1500PHP (31.81 USD).
These can be bought at Hair & Beauty shops. You can also try Lazada or other local online stores.
Make up will surely excite your kikay friend. Take advantage of the holiday promos and sales to get her an awesome set of beauty products.
Some of the hottest make up products I personally like are: Maybelline Velvet Matte Lipstick, The Nudes Pallete, Fashion Brow, Color Sensational So Nude and Hypercurl Volume Mascara.
Maybelline Philippines Crazy Sale offers up to 50% OFF on make up products starting November 13 to December 31, 2015.
FOR THE SERIOUS
A planner is a smart and ideal gift for a friend who always bags the Most Responsible Award in the group.
Kidding aside, planner people are pretty easy to shop for. The only thing you’ll have to know is their preferred calendar format and favorite color.
Some of the popular women planners available are Belle De Jour and Light Planner (Photo on Right). I have the same planner given to me as a Farewell gift before I flew to Oman. I’m excited to use it next year!
Planners are usually available in bookstores.
FOR THE ADVENTUROUS
A pair of sunglasses makes a handy gift especially if your friend likes the outdoors. She can use it on her next out-of-town beach trip!
Sunnies probably has the most range of stylish eyewear I’ve seen. They are also very affordable with price starting from 300PHP(6.36 USD).
Sunnies has a growing number of branches in the Philippines. They have stalls in selected SM and Robinson’s Mall.
FOR THE ATHLETIC
If your friend likes to work out with some music, I’m sure she can appreciate an amazing pair of running earphones.
These earphones, unlike the regular ones are lightweight and doesn’t interfere with physical activity. They usually have good grip to prevent them from falling out of the ears.
You can buy this from gadget accessories shops in malls.
FOR THE ARTSY
This is a perfect present for the creative friend who likes drawing, painting and lettering.
There are several types of brush pens. The most used are Water Brush Pen and ready-to-use Colored Brush Pens.
Try to look in National Bookstore or visit the Pens Galore website.
