I was feeling generous recently, which isn’t entirely out of the ordinary. I enjoy buying grumpy look strangers coffee, surprising a friend with a gourmet cupcake, or just picking up something little if it reminds me of someone important in my life. My friends are no strangers to receiving surprise mailings of goofy socks, Hello Kitty water bottles, home baked goods, and anything else that may seem random, but I know will be a home-run with my weirdo group of friends. I think it’s a nice gesture to let someone know you’re thinking of them, and hey, you never know what kind of day they’re having, maybe they seriously need that cupcake!
This past week I was able to mail a very special gift set to one of my closest friends. It wasn’t her birthday but I mean come on, what kind of girl wouldn’t absolutely love to receive this gift set from Angela Friedman? A diva-licious and really really soft sleep mask alongside delicate panties are a simple luxury that every girl should own, but wouldn’t necessarily buy for herself.
And, friends don’t let friends where ugly panties.
So if you’re feeling generous, or maybe just need a quick go-to gift for someone (we’ve all forgotten a birthday and scrambled for a last minute gift), check out these gift sets that anyone would happily receive! And if not, feel free to send them my way.
The Three J NYC Eloise Pajama Set. Because nobody understands a girl’s love for lounging better than her best friend. Encourage more wine-nights in with this glam pj set.
Stockings are an easy pick since the sizing doesn’t have to be as exact as say a bra size. Not only do these encourage the use of garter belts (yay for vintage lingerie!), but how adorable is the bow and backseam combination? Have fun trying to give these away and not keep them for yourself…
Holly turned me on to the wonderland that is Trashy Diva, and while you could pretty much close your eyes and click anything on the website for a perfect present, they have a pre-selected gift section that will have you looking for reasons to celebrate. Make-up is something that I love, but I never really branch too far outside CVS when purchasing products for myself. If you know someone who’s the same way, treat her to something she’ll love but would never splurge on for herself. And while you’re at it, you might as well check out the dresses…
Maybe you and your girlfriends don’t treat yourselves to as many spa days as you truly deserve. But who says you can’t at least create the ambiance on your own? A robe to cuddle up in is a perfect mix of feminine luxury that isn’t uncomfortably romantic to gift to your friend. This Beautiful Bottoms Short Night Robe is all silk and could transition from a night of attempting to give yourself a pedicure, to covering a sexy lingerie set for a different kind of night.
Random acts of kindness whether it’s a high-end sleep mask or a cup of coffee are usually more appreciated than you realize. And what better power would you want than to make someone smile? What’s your favorite surprise gift you’ve received, or given to make someone’s day?
