    Hey! While we’re doing our best to make sure the products we feature will arrive in time for Christmas, shipping times are tricky and 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. 

    1. A tube of Liquid Matte Lipstick from The Lip Bar, a Detroit-based cosmetics company practically made for your pal who can't resist a bold lip.

    3. A plug-in color-shifting mushroom night light for the person who always wishes they were tromping through the forest. They may not be able to camp every night, so the least you can do is bring some woodsy magic to them.

    5. A bright orange claw clip from Chunks, because who doesn't want a quick, easy, and stylish way to throw their hair up at a moment's notice? I looooove my clips from Chunks, which have been sturdy enough to survive my fidgeting for multiple years.

    6. A beautifully illustrated write-in menu book so they can record and remember all of their soirées through the years — starting with their holiday menu, perhaps?

    8. Some Jane Dottie Vintage scrunchies that each come in a variety of sizes to accommodate all kinds of hair textures, types, and styles. They come in *so* many fabrics and patterns, good luck choosing just one for each friend!

    11. A shatter-resistant pack of multicolor glass straws so they always have a waste-free *and* beautiful option to drink their daily menagerie of beverages from.
