So I’m sure you have a common white girl or two in your life – y’know, Starbucks loving, Uggs wearing, Instagram obsessed. You know what I’m talking about.

Don’t get your knickers in a twist about the term – I’m not being rude or racist, heck, I’m about as white girl as they come (except I think PSL’s are gross… yeah.)

But anywho, back to my point. We’re here to discuss presents. And white girl’s would love anything on this list so go ahead and pick something out for that basic girl in your life and and make her “can’t even”. 


Basic Gifts for Common White Girls

S’well Water Bottle

They’re super cute, do an awesome job at keeping your liquids at temperature, and come in lots of styles and colours. 

If you want a cheaper alternative, I’ve seen some at Superstore that look virtually identical. 


Starbucks Gift Card

Because, obviously. Starbucks anything will do (mugs, to-go cups, etc.)


Blanket scarf

Scarves are a staple wardrobe piece, and girls get cold, like, all the time. Kiki from Harper’s Hats Love found some adorable blanket scarves that are all under $30! Bonus!


Essie Nail Polish

Find them at virtually any drug store, Walmart, or Target!


Cute Phone Case

Amazon has an abundance of adorable phone cases for super cheap. White Marble Case (iPhone) or Marble Case (Android) will never be a bad choice. 


To-Go Mug

Just make sure it’s cute (and functional is good too.) These ones from Contigo & Aomerly are adorable. Or Starbucks mugs work great too.



Kate Spade has adorable agendas, as well as planners, I literally can’t even.


Polaroid Camera

Y’know, the instant photos that can be arranged into a heart shape on her bedroom wall?


Reading Socks

These ones from Chapters and Indigo look so fluffy I’m going to die. 


Makeup Bag

Every girl could use another makeup bag! Easy to find online, in drugstores, or I love mine from Stella & Dot.


Lush Bath Bombs

Really anything from Lush will be wonderful. 


FabFitFun Subscription Box

Such an awesome idea! This quarterly box comes every season with products ranging from makeup, to hair products, to fun home stuff and more. Everything your girl could ever want. Use the code “COZY” for $10 off!


Puppy Book

Because, awwwwwwe. Check out your local bookstore for a book that’s just filled with puppies. Because who doesn’t like looking at puppies!?


Toms Shoes

A definite staple. Just gotta know her shoe size!


Throw pillows

Only if you know the colour scheme of her room, because you definitely can’t throw that off. Check out your local home goods stores, or Indigo-Chapters has tons of cute home decor stuff!


Lipstick Organizer

Y’know, if she wears lipstick. 


Cute Graphic Sleep Shirt

The best thing to sleep in is an oversized t-shirt – why not have it be cute? Forever 21 can hook you up with some adorable graphic tees.


Mason Jar Tumblers

They’re perfect for camping! Find them online, or at Walmart, Target, or Bed Bath and Beyond. 


Ipsy Subscription

It’s a monthly subscription glam bag delivered to your door with makeup goodies and samples. I’m sure she’ll love it. 



Beanies, or toques as we call them here in Canada, are great for 3 day hair. Your girl needs one. Slouchy beanies are definitely my favourite, but pom-pom beanies are pretty adorable too. 


Curling Wand

The only hair tool you need (assuming she already has a straightener.) I love my five in one from Amika, but I’ve heard rave reviews about NuMe’s. The InfinitiPro by Conair is a great one wand start though. 


If you pick any of these gifts, I’m sure your basic girl will love it. Whether that be your BFF, your daughter, your girlfriend – she’ll love you even more now.

This was so much fun to put together, I definitely had a good laugh. Mostly because of the fact that I would love almost all of these things because I’m about as basic as they come (insert monkey covering it’s eyes emoji.) Oh I make myself laugh. Happy shopping!
