We have a very special birthday coming up this weekend… That’s right, our lovely editor-in-chief, Lauren, will be blowing out her candles on February 1st! So in her honor, we thought we’d put together a birthday girl gift guide. If you have a friend whose birthday is coming up and you’ve been stressing over what to get her, look no further. These 10 gift ideas are everything that birthday gifts should be. They’re the kind of fun little trinkets that your bestie maybe wouldn’t think to buy for herself, but will be so excited about when she unwraps them. They’re adorable, thoughtful and will ensure that it’s her happiest birthday yet. Check them out below…

Gift Guide: For the Birthday Girl

1. Ban.do Canvas Tote in Ticket Stripe, $20
Because every birthday girl deserves some flowers, candy, and Champagne… (Bestie bonus points if you actually fill this tote with those three items!) 

2. LC Lauren Conrad Stick Drop Earrings, $9.80
These elegant pearl earrings from Lauren’s Kohl’s collection are the perfect birthday party baubles. But we bet they’ll look just as chic dressed down with jeans and a white tee. 

3. The Little Market Heart Wine Bottle Stopper, $10
You know that the birthday girl will be popping bottles, and now she can keep the bubbles in her leftover bubbly with this sweet handmade bottle stopper.

4. Moglea Happy Birthday Gorgeous Card, $6
Sometimes a personal, handwritten note is one of the best birthday presents you can give. And this watercolor birthday card is too pretty to pass up.

5. The Social Type Birthday Bestie Card, $4.50
Another adorable card option, this hot pink greeting will show your bestie just how much she means to you.

6. Deborah Lippmann Glitter Nail Color in Happy Birthday, $20
This sparkly rainbow polish hue is actually called ‘Happy Birthday.’ How perfect is that?

7. Birthday Matches, $10
A scented candle is one of our go-to gift ideas for holidays, birthdays, and more. We love the idea of pairing a candle with this fun matchbox from The Social Type.

8. Ban.do Girl Talk Happy Birthday Party Headband, $16
If there’s one day that you can get away with wearing a hot pink headband with a message written on it, it’s definitely your birthday. In fact, we fully support the idea.

9. Anthropologie Celebration Jar, $30
Whether you buy your bestie this celebration jar or DIY your own version, this gift is sure to get the party started.

10. Philosophy Vanilla Birthday Cake Shampoo, Shower Gel, & Bubble Bath, $18
This is one of our favorite scents from Philosophy. It smells divine and is the perfect birthday gift for obvious reasons.
