Holiday Gift Guide for Girlfriends

Alexandria Ugarte - Ocean and Ink - Christmas 2015 Holiday Gift Guide for Your Girlfriends 01

Post by aftcra Guest Blogger, Alexandria Ugarte of Ocean & Ink

The best thing about your gal pals is what makes each one unique and what they bring to the group, am I right? So it’s nearly impossible to find a one-size-fits-all sort of gift to hand out to the whole group. Besides, if there were, would the gift even be that special?

I’m lucky enough to be surrounded by a bright bunch of talented, unique, and amazing girlfriends — whether they’re my BFFs since our kindergarten days, my college roommates, coworkers, or new clients at Ocean & Ink. This holiday season is going to be one for the books as I try to find a special gift for each of these lovely ladies. Anyone else feel the same way?

You’re in luck! I’m about to do some some of the dirty work for you… this gift guide for girlfriends has some great gift ideas for your diverse and amazing girlfriends.
