It’s getting cold outside, make your holidays hot with these hot gifts!!

Gifts for Her

Cheap but chic: Boys know that girls are picky, but a good gift for her doesn’t have to mean expensive.
Affordable perfume or lotion from Victoria’s Secret or Bath & Body Works that usually only cost between $5 to $12.

If you’re that guy who knows his girl’s style, why not clothes from inexpensive but great stores like Forever 21 or H&M?  You can find amazing dresses for $25.
If you’re a girl who is buying for your best friend, buy a best friend necklace for you both in places like Target or even just Claire’s.

Pricey but classy: If you want to splurge, then try jewelry, or a nice perfume
B’elle D’opium de YSL perfume ($80)
Urban Outfitters handbag
If you are the best friend, go buy a Juicy Couture friendship jewelry
A nice dinner Maggiano’s or Prime Rib (and don’t forget the roses when you pick her up!)
