Being away from my loved ones during the quarantine has made me particularly grateful for their presence in my life. It took an extended stay-at-home order for me to FaceTime my friends regularly, but I appreciate our friendships so much more now. We've been figuring out this new reality together, giving each other new book or movie recommendations, or just making time to listen. This holiday, I'm planning to express my gratitude with meaningful personalized gifts.
If you're thinking the same, I curated some ideas appropriate for any occasion. If you're trying to save a little money, we rounded up our favorite ideas that cost less than $100. Whether your friend is a homebody, fashionista, makeup-lover, or neat freak, we've got something for her. Stop putting it off and get to shopping — we made it so much easier on you.
