Sometimes there is no need to wait for a special occasion to give your friends or family members a small token of appreciation. However, choosing gifts that your friends actually want can be quite a challenge, but you can always pay attention to things they can’t live without and look for similar or other things that even they would never expect to get.

Guest poster Amy Mia shares 7 gifts your friends actually want

1. Tech embellishment

Most of us are carrying our laptops all the time so protecting them is a must. Forget those ugly brown cases and surprise your friend with a Juicy Couture bedazzled laptop sleeve that is sure to be a showstopper.

2. Guilty pleasure item

When you go shopping with them, you might see them grabbing onto a certain piece of clothing – like full velvet leggings or a bad quote print T-shirt – but never buying it. Trust me, the look on their faces will be worth it all.

3. A watch

A watch is one of the most classic and stylish accessories in the world.  A classic, rose gold and gray combo by The Horse is a perfect gift for anyone! It’s practicality and beauty rolled into one.

4. Practical power

A lot of people struggle to stay practical and with all of the Instagrams they’re taking. You know that their phone battery is going to run out in just a few hours. Consider gifting them a charging cable key chain that will make sure they are never stranded without a way to charge their phone. 

5. Professionally lit selfies in their palm

Having a friend who is a professional blogger, or ‘grammer means you know that good lighting is hard to come by.. The LuMee Perfect Selfie case with built-in LED lights that are guaranteed to give you perfect lighting no matter where you are.

6. Nails on fleek

As far as personalized gifts go, there are very few that can beat this. Choose your friend’s favorite color and customize the bottle with a message that will make them think of you.

7. Keep them hydrated

For your friend who is always on the go, the best thing you can give is a water bottle. Gift them a glass bottle that they can carry around and still look amazing.

Are these gifts something your friends actually want?
