What your best friend really wants for Christmas

Nikki Parkinson Beauty, Fashion 31 Comments

Girlfriends really do make the world go round. Well mine do. They rock. I get asked a lot about who I consider to be style icons and I will always say, my girlfriends.

Each owns her own style. They are never shy to glam up and they know just the right way to glam down too.

I love that I have a girlfriend whose only flat shoes in her wardrobe are her Havaianas thongs. I love that I have a girlfriend who looks incredibly chic in a turban. I love that I have a girlfriend who is rarely seen in anything but black but when she does she wows us with red. I love that I have a girlfriend who’s not afraid to go from blonde to brunette and back again. And I love that I have a girlfriend who always looks effortlessly chic, kaftan-style.

Most of all, I love that each of my girlfriends loves a chat, loves a party … and loves a champagne.

Merry Christmas to all the wonderful best-girlfriends out there.

Here’s what I’d love to bundle up and send you for Christmas:

  1. Don’t need two guesses about who your red & black friend might be. Very honoured to be included in your besties list.

    If money was no object, I would be buying us all a group trip to New York!

    Love you xx

  2. My BFF has been a single gal for the longest time & she was buying gifts for both me & hubby while we only had to buy for her. So a few years back we decided to forgo gifts in exchange for a dining experience. Now every year at Xmas the 3 of us (my hubby inc) treat ourselves to a meal at a nicer restaurant than a typical date night, usually one my bestie has never tried. We’ve never looked back. We get to try somewhere new, enjoy a great night out & more importantly a guaranteed catch-up & quality face-to-face time with my bff in the pre-Christmas rush.

  4. wow…would be lovely to be on the receiving end of those presents. I have bought for two girlfriends…one is getting earrings that match a necklace she has and the other scented tea lights and a divine holder, and will be sharing bubbles with them too!

  5. I will definitely be buying my bestie a corded phone. Not cordless, but one with a cord. Everytime I call her she never answers because she has forgotten where she last left the handset and it has gone flat! Also love the Abba Wii game – there’s nothing more fun than a big singing contest with your friends. Although last time I played one of these, my husband, who is the worst singer in the world, won!

      Oh, that’s so funny Jenny! I bet you’d be able to find a great “retro” one. And re the wii singing, what’s with that? Maybe it just sounds more like the accent on the program when we sing out of tune?!

  8. Love the ABBA dance Wii game! Santa is bringing a Wii for my girls this Christamas, and that will definitely be under the tree. My 5 nearly 6 year old loves ABBA and so does her mum, so it will be a not so pretty dance off! Thanks for the gift ideas, I would love to be the recipient of any of those.
