4. For the Friend Who Works Hard and Plays Hard
Get the Stowaway Cosmetics Essentials Kit – Somehow, a full face of makeup fits into a pouch slightly larger than a credit card. Convenience isn’t enough though. The makeup itself is incredible and super high quality. The essentials kit has everything she needs to create a natural, pretty look for work and a more dramatic look for happy hour.
5. For the Girl You Really, Really Like
Get the I Like It Here Ruby Coven Ring – Put a (promise) ring on it with this ruby beautiful ring from I Like It Here. It’s delicate, but still makes a statement. Every time she looks at it, she’ll think of you.

Room & Board Horizon Plaid Throw – You really can’t go wrong with this cozy grey alpaca wool throw from Room & Board. It’s perfect for keeping warm on a chilly winter evening and the gorgeous neutrals go well with any home decor palette.
7. For the Cool Girl Who Is Impossible to Shop For
Glossier Black Tie Set – Glossier is the It Girl brand. Their effortless, easy-to-use products have a cool girl cult following. I’m obsessed with the Glossier Pink nail polish in this set. I have a bunch of Glossier products, and even though I’m not that cool, I instantly feel cooler when I wear them.

9. For the Perfectly Groomed Gent
Get the American Provence Natural Gooming Set made with care in my home state of Wisconsin. The kit includes deodorant, aftershave, body spray, soap and beard balm, which will leave him clean, styled and smelling great. It comes in several scents, but my favorite is the rugged ‘firepits and flannels’ scent with wintergreen, fir and cedar.
10. For the 70’s Girl at Heart
Get the I Like It Here Bast Pendant Necklace – This beautiful 70’s-inspired pendant is equal parts stylish and kitschy. For the history buff, the pendant features the pet cat of Greek-Egyptian writer Ptolemy.
11. For the Girl Who Thinks Glitter is a Neutral
Get the Furla Allegra Pouch to keep her sparkling this holiday season. The cute glitter pouch is just big enough to hold her holiday party essentials. If you’re in San Francisco, Furla has a holiday pop up shop going on now in Union Square.

13. For the Natural Beauty
Get the Too Cool for School Dinoplatz Tinted Lip Balm – Give her a pop of color for all of those holiday parties this season. These amazing tinted lip balms make perfect stocking stuffers too! The combo of a moisturizing balm with a pop of color is perfect for dry winter lips.

18. For the Girl Who Nailed Geometry
