AK Gift Guide 2015: For Your Best Friend (or Yourself)

The perfect gift guide for your best friend (or yourself). She’ll love these cozy winter clothes, fun accessories, cookbooks, and more.

I saved this gift guide for last because not only is it the biggest, but it just so happens to be my favorite of them all.

I’m not going to lie, most of these gifts I picked out because they were things that I would love to receive or give to a friend. I have to admit I purchased a few; I know it seems lame to shop for yourself during the season of giving, but sometimes it just happens. You guys get me.

Lastly, these gifts also just so happen to be PERFECT picks for guys to get their girlfriends, so feel free to send it to anyone who needs a little helpful hint this holiday season. AND HURRY! You’ll need to order soon in order to get these in time for Christmas! xoxo.
