Everyone has a basic friend in their life. She’s the girl who rocks Uggs with a puffy jacket and a MICHAEL Michael Kors tote slung over her shoulder. She loves Starbucks cold brew, Beyoncé and “will workout for wine”. These friends are a special group and lucky for us, they are really easy to shop for during the holidays. So where are we heading to shop for all the basic friends on our list? Macy’s — the Mecca of basic girls! I’ll admit it, I’m guilty of buying a few items on this list. After all, everyone has a little basic b*tch inside of them. How many basic friends do you have on your list?
MICHAEL Michael Kors Down Coat
A favorite brand of basic b*tches, this MICHAEL Michael Kors coat is as basic as it gets. The removable faux-fur trim collar and down filled interior will keep her as cozy and warm as she is basic.
The Apple Watch is the ultimate tech accessory for basic girls. It allows your basic friends to measure their workouts, daily activity, heart rate and is waterproof. The pink band is a total bonus.
Tag Springfield Luggage Set
Where would your basic friend be without luggage for vacay? This set will get her from A to B and trust me, she needs a carry-on.
Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair
Every basic b*tch needs a killer night serum and Estee Lauder’s night repair recovery complex promises to reduce signs of aging while hydrating the skin. She’ll see an improvement in just four weeks!
KitchenAid Classic Mixer
The basic crowd loves classic KitchenAid mixers – after all, it’s like having an extra set of hands in the kitchen! Since your basic friends will be doing a ton of holiday baking, you should give this gift a little early this year.
Nike Men’s Therma Hoodie
Give the gift of athletic wear to the basic guy in your life. This thermal training hoodie allows them to work out in both rain and shine.
5 Piece Fragrance Set
Every basic girl needs a basic set of fragrances. These deluxe perfume samplers allow her to test a few before she commits to a full bottle. She needs time to decide on her signature basic scent!
Urban Decay Naked Palette
Basic b*tches can’t wait to get their hands on the newest Urban Decay naked palette and this one brings some heat. From neutral matte colors to darker shades with a little sparkle, this eye shadow palette should make an appearance under the tree.
Kenneth Cole Down Coat
If you open any basic girl’s closet you’ll more than likely find something by Kenneth Cole. This quilted coat comes in three basic colors – champagne, granite and sangria.
Fitbit Alta HR Smart Watch
Less expensive than the Apple Watch, the Fitbit Alta is the number two tech accessory for basic girls. What would she do if she couldn’t track her steps, active minutes and sleep?
13-Piece Cookware Set
This basic cookware set is on sale for $35! The 13 piece set includes utensils, a steamer, two saucepans, a stock pot, two pans, a slotted turner and a pasta server.
MAC Velvet Mattes Lipstick
This classic is a basic favorite (and I’ll admit, I love it too!). It goes on smoothly and has a matte finish.
MICHAEL Michael Kors Parka
This coat is for those basic girls who think they aren’t basic. The MICHAEL Michael Kors faux fur trim parka is down filled and comes in olive and black.
KitchenAid Artisan Mixer
The KitchenAid Artisan 5 Quart Mixer is slightly larger than the mixer we mentioned before. It is easy to use and comes in a variety of colors.
MICHAEL Michael Kors Jet Set Travel Tote
The most coveted bag of the basic b*tch? The MICAHEL Michael Kors Jet Set Travel Tote. It is super functional because it holds all her basics.
