(1) Depending on the person your current favorite paperback may do, but if it's a friend who doesn't read as much, a fun book like Unplug Every Day is always a good option.
(2) Perks of Aurora has some great mugs based on popular TV shows, movies, & other pop culture references so there are some fun ones to choose from. The Bridesmaids and Legally Blonde are some of my favorites. Adding a Starbucks gift card (real or virtual) is never a bad idea.
(3) Fun notecards are another great option- I don't think I've ever come across anything from Rifle Paper Co. that I don't like. You can sometimes find really nice (and good quality) stationary or notecards at places like Home Goods or TJ Maxx for a great bargain. I may or may not tend to stock up.
(4 & 5) You know I couldn't skip out on a beauty product! A lip balm of some sort is usually my go to option. I'm a huge fan of Clinique's Chuby Stick lip balm's because they're moisturizing, provide a hint of color, and they have a lot of color options. I've never tried Lush's lip balms, but they're a great natural option for something a little different.
What are some of your favorite gift ideas?
