26 Gifts That Even Your Most Bougie Friend Will Probably Appreciate

Because every friend group has a high-maintenance friend with expensive taste.

What a year! The holidays are finally here! And while we’re doing our best to make sure the products we feature will arrive in time, shipping times are especially tricky this year, so we suggest shopping as early as you can.

Stock and shipping times can vary depending on where you live, which product you purchase, and more. So order earlier than you think you need to and be sure to double-check the retailers’ websites for shipping information to ensure that your gift will arrive in time for when you need it.

3. A jade roller and gua sha set to help them massage and detox their skin after a long day.
