The members of your inner circle are in lockstep. Raise a phone up high and the group can quickly get into formation for an awesome rehearsed (but not rehearsed-looking) snap. You have no problem ordering for each other at brunch because everybody has the same taste in carbs, plus you all share the same nut allergy (so synced, guys). You speak the same emoji language, borrow each other’s clothes (and forget to return them)—the list goes on. It goes without saying that the force is strong with your squad.
But figuring out individual, thoughtful presents to gift each one of those unique personalities that make up the troupe is the tricky part. To make things easier, we carved out three friend archetypes with the help of model Georgia Fowler and got her take on the perfect gifts to give each. And the good news is you can shop all of them at Bloomingdale’s. Keep reading to discover the perfect gifts for each member of your squad. And no need to thank us. What are friends for, right?
Gifts She'll Love
The Beauty Guru
The lipstick addict of the group loves discovering indie beauty brands, trying new products (on herself and then you), adopting new skin regimens, and curating (and re-curating) her top shelf. Thinking about trying out a new red? Ask her—she’ll know which one works with your skin tone, because she’s thought this through. But what do you get her? We’ve rounded up a few items that’ll definitely show her you’ve been taking her sage advice into consideration.

The Self-Made Maven
The “acting CEO” of your squad. She’s always on, glued to her smartphone, tinkering with a newly purchased tech gadget, and skimming through emails when nobody’s looking. Her uniform is made up of strong, no-frills minimalist pieces. So your gifting strategy should mirror her no-frills policy, but with a thoughtfulness that signals you’re paying attention to the roller coaster that is her work life; your gifts are meant to take the edge off.
