Your BFF likely knows you love her but how often do you say so? The holidays are a great time to remind that special friend in your life how much they mean to you. A gift is great. A meaningful hand written card is something she will never forget (or throw away).

Cosmetic Organizers
If your BFF has more make-up than she knows what to do with, then how about an organizer.  She will adore you for helping her get all her goodies organized.  As you can see, they range in price. Go with what you can afford.  Here are some suggestions:

-My personal favorite –> Lori Greiner Table Top Cosmetic Organizer. Your BFF will LOVE you for this!  $25.00
-Available at Target – Caboodles Acrylic Cosmetic Organizer Tray – only $15.00  (hint: because this is so affordable you can consider to fill it with a few things!)
Metro Train Case – Metallic Silver Croc – a more pricey selection at $110.00

Cosmetic Brush Set
If you know your BFF is picky about cosmetics and you can’t decide, then how about a nice brush set. This is likely something she won’t purchase for herself and therefore it will be appreciated. 

-Sephora has a whole range of selections. This six piece brush set is really nice and is under $50.00.  
-Check out this set from my favorite makeup artist Laura Mercier – $85.00 but worth every penny.
