There is a silent thrill that comes from finding the perfect gift for someone, which is why we find shopping for our besties a fun pastime. And there are some big personalities on your list this season. From the person always filling up your Google cal with dinner dates to the friend who doesn't flinch at firing off 10 messages back-to-back, we've rounded up the perfect presents for every person in your group chat. Male, female, or gender neutral, we have gift ideas that will suit everyone in your crew.
Every friend group has one — the person who brings everyone together, the common denominator, the cruise ship director. She or he is the person who sets the plans, pre-buys the tickets, and orders the Uber. Honestly, we don't know where we would be without them (probably at home on the couch), so they definitely deserve something special that shows your appreciation for all the time and effort they put into making your friend group function. Fancy cocktail picks will help them elevate their next apartment party, while a timepiece is exactly what they need to help you stay on schedule. The Chain Watch from The Marc Jacobs with its exaggerated links provides the perfect finishing touch to their otherwise-polished ensemble. Other ideas include a chic kitchen pot and crisp mini pillowcases, which are luxe yet practical present ideas for your most #adulting friend.
Chiming in with a meme to make you LOL is this person's speciality. They know just the right way to lighten the mood or get the convo going, and their GIF-finding skills are exceptional. They're the 2019 version of a class clown, and this lovable goof deserves nothing but the boldest, loudest, most statement-making gifts you can find. The Round Watch from The Marc Jacobs with its simple leather strap is minimal yet full of impact, perfect for the friend who always wants to be the center of attention. A cheeky sleep mask is also a great fallback gift for someone who exudes personality, and you can't go wrong with a set of yummy-smelling candles and a clay mask.
Got a promotion? Had a great first date? Found a penny on the sidewalk? This is the person you'd tell. They're generous with the exclamation points, love a good emoji, and never fail to pump you up when the moment calls for a good hype session. Since they spend so much of their time and energy celebrating you, use the holidays as an opportunity to encourage a little self-care, and treat them to something special. From a deck of prompts that motivates them to journal everyday to an at-home Gua Sha system or a luxe bath set to promote a moment of beauty bliss, gifts should encourage your hype queen to unwind and decompress. Of course The Cuff Watch from The Marc Jacobs is essentially a piece of arm candy and a nice reminder for them to take time for themselves everyday.
When you're unsure about what shoes to wear to a wedding or need help deciding whether or not to cut bangs (again), you take it to the group chat for some thoughtful insight and advice. But there's one friend in particular whose love language is "words of affirmation" and they need you to have their back and like their choices. The best bet? Give them a gift they already know has your seal of approval. Whether it's a pair of sunnies, a must-have beauty set, or a chic travel accessory, the key is to give them something you know they've been eyeing for a while. The Cushion Watch from The Marc Jacobs is vintage-inspired yet modern, and the timepiece of your friend's dreams.
