Xmas presents for girlfriends - up to $25

Ive got several friends and about 4 of them i do gifts with. What are sime suggestions of gifts i could give? None of them really see/know each other so i can get them all the same thing potentially. Was thinking maybe a succulent in a pretty pot or i saw some really pretty insulated wine glasses/cups. Throw me your ideas or tell me what great gifts you've been given!

The Cherry Blossom perfume from the body shop is a really nice perfume that would suit most people. Their packs are pretty nice too.
Partner it with some wine or mini champagne like the other commenter said.

Fart in a jar and give it to them. When they ask what it is say it’s air from Hawaii and you are taking them there for a holiday. When they open it and smell your fart throw sand in their face and laugh.
Great gift. My grandmother got it for me last year.

 Um ok. Worst gift ever in the world.

 It’s not the worst gift. It’s great.
My grandmother gave it to me last year and I haven’t stopped smiling since. Even put the pictures on Facebook.

My go to is a pack from the body shop. Or you could get a pretty basket, some bath bombs, loofah, bubble bath/shower gel, some lotion and a face mask.

 I second this! Kmart is your bestie for those things

 Yes, Kmart are great. Have you ever used the masks that come in the things that look like coffee capsules. They’re really good and they look really cute.

 Omg, I can’t stand receiving bath wash and lotion presents. Especially the cheap stuff 🤢 sorry I’m not being rude but if there is any gift NOT worth buying this is totally it.
Spend money wisely, get a small gift from lush. T2. Make a hamper with a couple of good quality products.
(Lindt chocs half price at Safeway $9) and then add in a coffee mug and Nespresso pods / nice tea
Cater it to the people you’re buying for

 Just giving my opinion on receiving body lotion and bath wash!
Not sure where I called you a bitch or a c**t 😯 maybe take your own advice in settling down

 Pretty sure she was referring to buying quality rather than cheap Kmart body stuff. Well that was what I got out of it and I totally agree. I was gifted a pack for my birthday - all from Kmart. It's going to the daycare hamper they are creating. It was a lovely thought but you can tell it's just a lazy gift. I much prefer to tailor a gift.

-A pair of earrings/ necklace from somewhere like Lovisa!
-Round beach towel
-voucher for their fav coffee shop

I give all my friends the same thing every year, NYE. I have a huge kids party at my place. So i do a little gift bag up with a mini bottle of champagne, some chocolates, confetti poppers, etc and an invite for the kids. It's a sleepover and buffet brunch is served at pick up time (10am til 2pm).

Grab the $12 rope beach bag from Kmart, add maybe something like a chapstick lip balms, or maybe something for the beach/pools or even a nice 2019 diary .. The rope bags are great especially with summer around the corner.

 Great idea!!
Beach bag + Kmart beach towel!

A nice candle or incense sticks with home baked cookies/ or box of chocolates if you don't have the time to bake.
