How to Choose a Birthday Gift for a Best Friend

Maybe your best friend’s birthday is coming up and you’re wondering what to get for this special individual. Fortunately, there are several ways to select a gift that will be meaningful to your best friend. Consider a few things to think about when choosing a birthday gift for a best friend.

A Gift Tied to a Significant Event

You may want to take a few minutes to think about a fun time you shared with your best friend. This can lead to a great gift choice. For instance, maybe you and your friend attended an entertaining concert featuring a favorite music group. You could purchase a CD featuring the music of this group as a birthday gift for your friend. It would serve as a reminder of your good time. Or, maybe the two of you had an exciting visit at the local zoo. A unique stuffed animal may remind your friend of one of the animals you saw on the outing. A gift takes on extra significance when it’s tied to a fun time shared by you and your friend.

A Personal Care Gift

A personal care gift is ideal for a friend who loves to try new bath lotions and perfumes. Perhaps your friend likes any type of soap or lotion with a rosemary mint fragrance. A gift of rosemary mint body lotion is sure to be a hit! Alternatively, your friend may love to try the latest skin care products for his or her face. Face creams and lotions would be appealing gift options for that person. Creating a basket of personal care gifts is a special way to present this offering.

Favorite Colors

Your friend may have a favorite color that he or she always wears. This makes it easy for a gift giver who wants to purchase a shirt, hat or jacket for a best friend. If your best friend loves the color blue, you may want to look for a piece of clothing that features different shades of blue. Though choosing a gift in a favorite color is a simple idea, it's sure to be loved by its recipient.

A Longtime Favorite

Thinking about your friend’s perennial favorites is another way to select the perfect birthday gift. For example, maybe your friend always seems to be sipping a cup of fragrant tea. In this case, you may want to give the person a supply of tea in a flavor that he or she hasn’t tried yet. Or, maybe your friend loves chocolate. A decorative container brimming with chocolate candy is sure to be appreciated. Mohonk Mountain House ny is an example of a business that offers these types of edible gifts.

Finally, no matter what type of gift you get for your best friend, he or she will be touched by the amount of thought that went into your selection. This is the best way to let your best friend know that you’re grateful for his or her friendship.

People Footwear x Herschel + Collab with Bloggers

I'm the happiest when they hold events in Alabang, and people really come. Yesterday, my friends went on a "field trip" in my turf as People Footwear and Herscel launched their Fashion Punctuation campaign at the Alabang Town Center. There were several bloggers who participated in the show, find out more below.

September Favorites

When I look back briefly, September felt like a curse. I got really sick for almost two weeks, which made me miss two sessions with my teaching job, an art workshop I've been looking forward to, and two plays and TWO concerts I'd die to watch. Huhuhu. Why!!!

But of course, there's also something about the month that changed me. The 2-week hibernation also led me to a book that turned around my disposition. I've never felt so grateful in my life - and being thankful, even for the littlest things, made me happier. Isn't that the thing that we aim for anyway?

So, presenting the point of this blog post! Here are the things that made me gush last month:

1) Cover Girl Cosmetics

You'll Love: NATIVE Fall / Winter 2015 Collection

I've seen NATIVE all-over Instagram, most especially on friends who love to go to music festivals and those crazy out-of-town outdoor parties. It looks cool and comfortable (the shoes), and of course, matibay. 

No wonder the brand just came up with TRAVEL and world culture themed collection for Fall / Winter 2015. Went to Glorietta earlier to check out these new styles, and also to participate in their current promo! (Who wants a free pair of NATIVE shoes?)

Be one of the first to try Magnum's NEW White Chocolate Indulgence!

Say hello to the NEW Magnum White Chocolate Almond. It will be out in the market on October 5. Want to be one of the first to try this new flavor? Read on!

ALQUERIA: Tapas Paellas Y Bistecas + Yey for Vegetarian Paella!

First of all, Happy World Vegetarian Day! I've been one since 2006 (or 05?), and have ever since been on the look out for alternatives to some dishes that I love and miss. I've tried vegetarian burgers, veggie hotdog, and vegetarian siomai, but for the first time, and finally, I was able to try a VEGETARIAN PAELLA earlier! I love flavored rice so so much, so this day made me happy! :)

Lunch out in Alqueria with Chuckie, Sarah, Paul, and Yen. Fun group! We talked a lot about travels.

UNIQLO x Lemaire

UNIQLO has so much in stored for us right now. For the fans, ready your shopping money before you enter their large stores (SM Megamall, SM North EDSA, SM Aura, and SM Mall of Asia)! I'm sure you'll find pieces you'd love for the coming holidays!

How Do I Look Asia's Zalora Shopping Party

Yehey, I'm so happy every time ZALORA holds a shopping party. They carry a lot of brands, but I am very much in love even with their own label. Their clothes are all on point, stylish, and of course - they have sizes that fit me well!

So yesterday's shopping party was hosted by DIVA's How Do I Look Asia. Bloggers and personalities gathered in Zalora's Pop-Up Store at the Shangri-La Mall.

Fossil Fall 2015: Calling All Curious

I've known Fossil for a long time, with my St. Scho busmates donning a leather bag for school or a sleek watch - both too cool and seem to be must-haves even during the 90s. But I started appreciating the brand when I went to the States 2 years ago, and bought a long red leather Fossil wallet and a white watch. I love them both for their timeless design and good quality. It felt good to own them!

Anyway, yesterday Fossil Philippines invited people to their Shangri-La Mall store to welcome Fall 2015. I'll let you in on the festivities that afternoon...

One Night Only: Beyond the Barricade, A Mega Musicals Concert

If you're into musicals, then this night is for you!

ATKINSONS: Celebrating 200 Years of Perfume Snobbery

When I got the invitation, it states that "it is the CHANEL of its time". A perfume loaded with history, I can't help but get curious about this brand.  

SM Beauty: All Eyes On You!

It's super true how eye makeup makes all the difference. A nice cat's eye, or the perfectly blended eye shadow gives one a whole new look! 

This October, SM Beauty highlights your makeup game with ALL EYES ON YOU campaign. 

Learned more about this earlier during their event at the SM Makati.

I'm a big pop music and happenings fan! Haha, I love them all... Katy vs Taylor? My guilty pleasure. VMAs Nicki Minaj - Miley Cyrus fiasco? Bought them all! Haha. So when I learned that Sun Cellular will bring us to the Carly Rae Jepsen concert, how can I say no? I bought her whole E.MO.TION album on iTunes right away, and listened to her other hits via Spinnr's Manila Concert section!

Starmobile KNIGHT Elite

Gone are the blogging days when I had to go out lugging 2-3 gadgets at a time. These days, I realized, a good camera phone is already worthy of taking pictures for my online accounts. As long as the quality is good, it doesn't matter if I took it with an inexpensive gadget, or without any special 50mm lens. 

Anyway, I kept on discovering new phones that have quality camera features. Nakakaimpress! One of them was during Starmobile's launch... So happy to attend it with my girls:

Nothing But H2O: Endless Summer Passport

Have you been to Nothing But H2O stores lately? I am from Alabang, but I think it was my first time in the Nothing But H20 ATC branch last week, and I enjoyed my visit! It's as if it's still summer in the country, and you're preparing for an adventure!

Me-Time At Cedar Salon

There will be days, right? When you just want to dedicate a few hours all to yourself. It was one of those days when I went to Cedar Salon in San Juan, around 2 or so weeks ago. I had no plans of changing my look (although this is also very much welcome in Cedar), I just want plain, good, pampering service.

UNIQLO expands its HEATTECH line

I've been following Uniqlo's HEATTECH line for years. I love its breathable and light cloth, most especially when traveling. Recently, Uniqlo expended their HEATTECH line from conventional innerwear to pants, knitwear, and fleece. The warming and heat retention function of the line is now made even better with camellia oil.

Who's ready to travel for a colder December? :)
