27 gifts for your bestie you can buy at Target

I don’t meditate. I go to Target. There’s something about walking down aisles filled with things you definitely don’t need but want, their prices reasonable but once added up rival your biweekly paycheck. Oops. If you’re like me, and have been waiting all year for Target’s holiday displays and festive home decor to pop up, then this is Your Time. Go claim it! Skip and jump to your soundtrack of happy. And while you’re there, you might as well do some holiday shopping. For family, your S.O., your boss, sure. But your best friend? Finding them gifts at Target is EASY.

The beautiful thing about Target is that there’s something for everyone — whether your bestie loves jewelry (Target has some REALLY cute stuff — watch out, Tiffany & Co.), purses and bags (I found a dupe for a brand that rhymes with shmashel), chocolates, the newest cool things in tech, and pamper-me-up beauty products. It’s all there, because of course it is. This is Target we’re talking about.

And best of all, since it’s Target, you won’t feel TOO guilty about the purchases you make. Most of the items on this list are under $50, save for a few splurges. Anyway, not sure what you’re waiting for. Get your shopping on!

1. Women’s French Terry Union Suit, $29.99

Idea: Get your BFF this onesie (it has deer on it!) and get one for yourself. And then invite her over for a Netflix binge-a-thon (a bottle of wine totally optional; popcorn not optional).

2. Merona Women’s Floral Dial Strap Watch, $14.99

Your friend will always know the time (because let’s be real, reaching in your bag for your phone is annoying! I don’t care how anti-technology I sound, I will always be a watch-wearer) and she’ll know the time in style. How cute is this floral watch?
