Gifts Under $55 for Your Besties

The season of gift-giving is here, and for those of you who practice procrastination, it's time to get to it! After peruising many, many gift guides and coming up short of one that was packed full of items I thought my fabulous friends (or I) would be ecstatic to receive, I knew I had to create one that is purely SugarSpiceStyle. Here are nine gifts for your girls who are your most loved, fun, feminine, and indulgent friends--all under $55.

set of shot glasses by Betsey Johnson, Macy's $28
These shot glasses are part of a fun and sinnocent collection of barware by Betsey Johnson; there are also coordinating coasters and drink identifier rings available for purchase separately.

Bud Vase Garland, Urban Outfitters $24
We all have a friend who has an extra special appreciation of aesthetics and nature, and this is the perfect gift for that friend! Help her add some life and beauty to her place in a creative way with these whimsical bud vases that string on the wall as if they were lights. Of course, accompanying this gift with a small bouquet of flowers is a must.

Larger Than Life lipgloss in Holly Woodlawn, Nars $26
Red lipgloss is a must for any lady, but some seem to have an extra special relationship with red lips, a special place in their hearts just for it. This bright, orange-hued red is perfect for your red-lip-loving friends--blonde, brunette, or redhead. This is a versatile shade that's apt for any season and is sure to be a hit. (Nars Cosmetics also meet my top criteria for makeup: no animal testing!)

If you like the idea of a grab-and-go bag as a gift, also take a look at the Boss Lady shopper and the Travel Light overnighter. These bags are made of 95% post consumer recycled material. I have a few that I like to use for weekend travel; they're fun to use and strong--perfect for shoes and odds and ends like hair dryers and purses.

Kiss and Tell Cory by Rebecca Minkoff, Amazon $55  
This is just too fun! Because we all know that reliving that first kiss as we dish to our bff about it is almost as good as the kiss itself... 

Old Enough To Know Better flask, Anne Taintor $22
Flasks are not just for men. This is 2012, and any sassy party girl should have a flask with a cheeky expression that reflects her personality. Take a look at Anne Taintor's site for more flasks, cocktail napkins, coasters, and shot glasses with other witty and irreverent phrases.

Any friend who likes to nap or travels will appreciate a Mary Green sleep mask. Mary Green is famous for her fine silk lingerie, but her sleep masks are simply the cutest out there. Browse through a selection of dozens of sleep masks with different designs to pick the one that's perfect for your pal.

Fun-Due Kit by Dylan's Candy Bar, Neiman Marcus $40 
Noone's ever too old to enjoy some sweet messy fun, and this set just screams sleepover, manis, and a catchup sesh! Dylan's always delivers with their treats, and the packaging is just as fun as the goodies inside.

wine toppers by Corkickle, Uncommon Goods $18
available for reds or whites
Let your friend add some pizzazz to her wine bottles by gifting a set of these chic wine toppers. They're perfect for your friend who entertains or who is known for her signature glass of wine with dinner.
