I am so happy today to share with you some great gift ideas for your BFF! These are great for friends, busy moms and women that you just appreciate having in your life. I have a few friends I would put in the BFF (Best Friends Forever) category. This are those special friends that you laugh with, cry with and always have make great memories with.
If you are like me, you want to give these friends something that says "I love you BFF!". The items I am sharing with you today are all items that I have personally used and recommend. Some of these products I purchased and others were received for review. All opinions of these are my own. While I realize some BFFs are men, these gift suggestions are items I am giving to my female friends.
Gift Ideas for Friends
First of all is a planner for 2015. Chances are if she is busy, she has not bought one yet and is already making appointments for next year. I found this cute one from Sugar Paper and it is available at Target.
More Gift Ideas for Busy Moms
Also helpful and always appreciated, is some great make up. Many busy moms do not have time to shop for fine, quality makeup. These items from Manna Kadar Cosmetics are some of my favorites. Manna's line of cosmetics are not only beautiful and long wearing, but, many of her items perform double duty. That is what a busy mom needs!
This Plum Princess eyeshadow palette is beautiful. The rich plum colors are deep and vibrant.
Pictured below are Lip Glazes in and Fly-away and Patty Cakes, blush in Cheeky and the lovely eyeshadow collection. The lip glazes are silky smooth and keep your lips nice and moist while offering beautiful color. Talk about double-duty!
Manna Kadar is a local brand and has been featured in many magazines. Ever since I had a makeover with Manna's cosmetics, I have been a loyal fan.
Some sweet toffee from B Toffee is always a welcome gift. B Toffee is made locally here in Southern California and is made from a handcrafted recipe that is pure, tasty decadence.
A DIY Book or Two. I have a couple I love and find enjoyable and inspiring.Please note that these two items contain affiliate links. I have yet to make a penny, but just so you know. Some of the books I have had the pleasure of reviewing and recommend are:

If you have a really good BFF, you might even want to put some of these together and make a great gift basket. All of these items are things I personally use and love. Those are the things you want to share with your BFF, so I hope you found them helpful.
TIP: When creating a gift basket, add a couple of dollar store ornaments to make it more festive.
