Holiday shopping can be a chore, especially for Robert Rodriguez ‘21 who gets dragged into a secret santa every year, “I never know what to buy for my friends, I’m always scared they won’t like my gift so I end up buying them a gift card.” On the other hand, Samantha Jones ‘20 participants in 3 secret santas and has this to say about holiday shopping for her friends “I love buying gifts for my friends, it is hard to find something they’d enjoy but the happiness on their face when they open it is totally worth the hassle”. Whether one is like Robert or Samantha, both agree that buying gifts for friends is a struggle and hopefully a gift guide can make it simpler.

Girls are harder to shop for than guys so I’ll start off with them. For one’s girl friends,  one has to be very observant. Notice if they wear makeup consistently, like certain clothing brands or wear a perfume everyday. If they wear makeup or perfume one can never go wrong with gift sets at Sephora. The gift sets are great because one’s friend will be able to try an array of products and it didn’t break your bank. Sephora currently has a gift set of six bold lip colors priced at $28 which is a great as only one would cost $18. The best deal lies within the perfume sampler gift set which is $25 for 7 small samples of the best selling perfumes but wait, the best part of this deal is that a coupon to redeem your favorite sample for a rollerball of that same perfume comes with the gift set. It is with no doubt that one’s girl friends would enjoy either of these gift sets.

If shopping for your guy friends, notice whether he is athletic or more laid back. If he is more athletic, every guy can use a pair of Nike Elite Socks,  look at any boy’s feet while you’re walking in the hallway and you will see him sporting these. If your guy friend likes to come to school sporting comfortable clothing, sweats have never done anyone wrong. The best are also from Nike and they come in a variety of colors as well. They are laced with fleece on the inside to ensure that your friend will be kept warm this holiday season.

Even if you’re in a rut and don’t know what to get your friends, these gift ideas will be sure to please your bank account and of course your friends.
