Have you started shopping for Christmas gifts yet? It’s never too early to start. The sooner you finish, the sooner you can start really appreciating being around your friends and family. Of course, I always think buying gifts is one of the best parts of Christmas! Thinking about what to get each friend and family member involves creativity and planning.
I’ve made all that much easier for you this year with my bubblegum dream holiday gift guide. Are you a fan of pink? Do you have friends that love pink? If the answer is yes, then you’re in the right place! Pink is one of the most popular colors for a reason, and I know you’ll love these cute gifts for a friend.
Growing up, pink wasn’t exactly my favorite color. I didn’t really hate it, but you wouldn’t catch me wearing anything pink or even owning anything pink. But once I became an adult, I felt empowered to like it without being embarrassed. And at this point, I am a pink convert! I love pretty much every shade of pink, from coral to bubblegum to blush.
There are many shades of pink, and they all evoke different emotions. In this holiday gift guide, we’re going to focus on bubblegum pink: not just because it makes great Christmas gifts for her, but also because it points to one aesthetic: soft, feminine, and delicate.
Kitchen gadgets, hair accessories, and shoes all take on a more flirty and feminine look when they’re washed with a light pink. You can almost imagine Barbie using the same pink mittens as one the cute gifts for her, or donning the same heart-shaped earrings that you got for your friend.
Bubblegum pink sometimes also takes on a more blush tone, which is more neutral than candy-colored. I love blush or flesh-colored pinks because they are a bit more neutral and a little more relaxed. It’s a great color for cute gifts for a friend. It works well on hair clips so they’ll go with most outfits, and it makes fluffy slippers look like soft clouds.
I know what you’re going to say, that not everybody loves or even likes pink. Like I said before, I used to fall into that category. I totally understand that not everybody will appreciate a cutesy pink gift for Christmas. Pink doesn’t resonate with everybody, but it doesn’t have to.
If your friends and family don’t like pink, then I’d suggest checking out another one of my popular holiday gift guides. I have plenty of color scheme gift guides, including peppermint, blue Christmas, and rainbow.
I honestly believe more people like pink than dislike pink. And if you have a friend who’s been feeling stressed out and could use a little self-care and self-love, pink Christmas gifts will do just that.
Pink gifts are also perfect for girls who grew up playing with Barbie, baby dolls, Polly Pocket, watched My Little Pony or loved the Disney princesses growing up. They all have an adult appreciation for pink. And honestly, they should. It’s a beautiful colour that’s elegant, cute, and makes great gifts for her.
