You know how in “Mean Girls” all the high school students are separated into cliques depending on their “type” or personality and sit accordingly in the cafeteria? Well that’s not exactly real life, as many of us have a group of friends that’s as diverse as the subway on a morning commute. This can make it hard if you’re planning to get holiday gifts for all of your friends, one product may not work for everyone. Your best friend may love that set of pink lip gloss you picked up, but your friend who’s always off playing basketball with the guys may not.

That’s why we’re bringing you the best gifts for everyone on your list. From the trendy girl who only wears what’s in season now to the boho babe who keeps her hair and skin natural with eco-friendly products, we have suggestions for all. While your girlfriends, sisters, and coworkers may not fall under one type, this guide can help you narrow your choices down to make shopping a bit easier. Or, you can just look through for gift sets for yourself because you may like them all.
