Shopping for someone who legit has EVERYTHING, whether it's a best friend, lover or relative, it's tedious as hell.
Especially when you're on a tight budget, you can't afford to get her a new unicorn, expensive brands or luxurious cosmetics.
We've collected a group of weird and wonderful gifts for that gal who has it all, but realistically some of these items are now on our personal 'treat yourself' list of 2019…
We have no shame.
Enjoy our gift guide, we've discovered some of the internet's most lavish notions about gift-buying so we're off to pop a bottle of vino for no actual reason other than wishing that we, too, had it all.
1. Dyson Supersonic Hairdryer
Dyson, of hoover fame, have released a new Supersonic hairdryer which apparently dries hair RIDICULOUSLY fast, so you won't be late for work in the morning or running around with damp hair.
It's a steep price, but is guaranteed to survive for years as your barnet's new BFF.
2. Ethical silk pillowcases from White & Green
For the woman who has everything, treat her to the highest quality grade A charmeuse silk pillowcases, for the softest sleeping experience imaginable.
White & Green use 100% Ethical Peace Silk, so no silk worms are harmed or boiled in the process of creation.
3. Belkin keychain USB charger
Belkin has released a range of coloured keychains which double up as a charger, and can be attached to any handbag you like.
The charger works for iPads, iPhones and iMacs, and the utter notions tech vibe is frankly gas. We want it.
4. & Other Stories metallic socks gift set
These gorgeous glittery socks come in a pack of three, and are made of organic cotton.
Why have one pair of sparkly socks when you can have THREE? Simply stunning.
5. Estee Lauder fragrance treasures
For a limited time only, Brown Thomas are offering a reduced price on this perfume set of Estee Lauder products. What are you waiting for?
All the favourite eau de parfum purse spray scents are included in the one gift box; Beautiful, Pleasures, ModernMuse and Modern Muse Le Rouge.
6. Hymne Desinvolte scented candle
& Other Stories have such a great collection of luxury scented candles; this one is the fleur d'abricot, the soothing aroma of apricots.
For that gal that has it all, posh French candles seem like the perfect plan.
7. Wireless earphones
Untangling your earphones can be one of the most tedious tasks known to man, so why not gift a loved one who has everything with some high tech wireless earbuds?
These lightweight, portable earbuds use the highest-quality Bluetooth technology to set you free from cables.
8. Lulu Guinness heart face travel set in black/pink
This luxury travel set from Lulu Guinness will give your gal-pal the ultimate travel glamour.
The iconic set includes a passport holder and a luggage tag, beautifully packaged in a Lulu Guinness print.
9. Personalised wine glass
She's got it all, but has she got her name on a swanky wine glass? Chances are, probably not.
This is definitely a boujee gift for a gal with it all, leave a gas message on it while you're at it.
10. Charlotte Tilbury mini Hollywood liquid lipstick charms
These jaw-dropping lipstick charms, Too Bad I'm Bad and Show Girl are the ideal gift for that gal who just seems to have everything known to man.
A nourishing rosy pink shade and dark berry tone are included as a portable set of the Charlotte Tilbury bestsellers.
The ultimate minimalist statement is the gift of… no gift.
For the gal who has it all, once she opens this she'll really want the gift of something.
12. Spice Girls, SPICE: vintage record vinyl
Has to be done. They might have it all, but they most likely haven't had a chance to go out and buy the Spice Girls classic vinyl SPICE.
She'll be delighted with this present, any gal would be. You're spicing up her Christmas.
13. Seletti banana lamp
One thing we can confirm without needing a single source is that your gal pal DOES NOT own this random AF banana lamp that costs a silly amount of money.
If you have the cash and confidence to match this stupendously ridiculous lamp, why not buy it?
Red wine therapy sleeping mask is from Korean brand Holika Holika, and it uses red wine extract with its jelly-like texture to melt effortlessly onto your skin and absords it to deliver anti-ageing benefits… all while you sleep.
Wait, so red wine has the power to do this? You betcha. Give it to your best gal, or keep it for yourself.
15. Kiehl's Creme de Corps Whipped Body Butter
This gorgeous light body cream has 24-hour dehydration, smells magnificent and absorbs quickly to deliver deep moisture.
What better gift to bequeath a friend who has it all? She might have everything but moisturised skin is always a great present.
And that's a (gift) wrap, ladies.
Have fun shopping for the woman who has everything, it's a tricky challenge but not impossible.
You just need to think outside of the box, and explore the weird and wonderful corners of the internet.
We all have had a bad experience with heating tools and haircare: whether it's burning your scalp or just creating supremely dodgy curls for a night out, it's happened to us all.
Some gals even resort to teaching their boyfriends how to use hair tools to stop themselves from constantly getting burnt, and other gals just give up altogether.
Taming the mane can be tedious, frustrating and just downright PAINFUL. This Christmas, we're hoping to get a gift from Santa which will ultimately stop the problem of tangled brushes and applying aloe vera to our burns.
We have scoured the lands trying to find a tool that allows us to move our heads and hands around without the heat danger, and creates the perfect looks for day and night.
HALLELUIJAH: a new and improved version of the Instyler has just been released, and it just might save your life.
You might remember the original Instyler; in case you've been living under a haircare rock, it's become a huge name by transforming hair into big bouncy waves and straight, sleek locks.
The Instyler Max now comes in three glam colours: purple, black and pink, and we can't decide which one we want more.
Praise the Lord, no more burns. The Instyler Max has a rotating barrel addition which straightens, curls, and adds twice the amount of body to our hair. It works super fast so you won't be spending hours with aches in your neck staring at the mirror.
Trying to get picture-perfect hair can be tricky at best, re-creating glamorous curls or straight sleek looks from our favourite catwalk shows seems unfairly difficult considering we don't have a personal hairstylist on hand.
To prevent those precious oils from escaping, we recommend Argan oil products. Acure Organics Moroccan Argan Oilhas ingredients like buckthorn oil and pumpkin seed oil, which are both rich in fatty acids for retaining moisture.
4. Coconut oil is also renowned for treating dry and brittle hair in winter. Use 100% organic coconut oil from your local health foods shop and spot the difference in time for Santa to make it down the chimney.
HOWEVER, while these mad trends were very cool and Insta-worthy, we wouldn’t be brave enough to try them. Gigi Hadid is the doyenne of all things hair so it’s not surprising that she has tried balayage and looked amazing.

Ash balayage is doing the rounds on Instagram at the moment, and starts as any normal balayage hair colour would—with dark-toned roots. Now don’t be confused, it’s a completely different colour to the original blond balayage which celebs like Blake Lively embraced particularly during her pregnancy.
Festival season is well and truly upon us and while we are pumped about the live performances and amazing food, we can't help but think of it as an opportunity to get creative with our hair and makeup regimes.
Longitude is the place to be this weekend, and with thousands of festival-goers due to descend on the gates of Marlay park the style and beauty stakes will be high AF.
But never fear, because we've compiled a list of some of the most beautiful festival looks that are sure get those creative juices flowing:
Who cares if you have to re-apply every 10 minutes? It'll be so worth it.
The stunning Duchess is giving us all kinds of hair inspiration to see out the summer, and her shorter but not quite lob-length hair is low-maintenance perfection.
While it's definitely not a dramatic change, the slightly lighter look adds a summery edge to her tresses.
The shorter, but still versatile, length makes this look perfect for those who like the option of still having enough length to play around with different styles, without the mega-maintenance of Rapunzel locks.
Getting ready for a big night out can often be the best part of the entire night.
Getting the girls around for 'a few' pre-drinks while everyone primps and preens themselves over a glass of gin & tonic is where the goss is divulged, and sometimes leaving the house for the club gets pushed back later and later thanks to the catch ups
I'm usually a no fuss, no frills kind of girl, and if my hair gets brushed before hitting the bar, I consider myself made up.
Dry & Fly Blow Dry Beauty Bar, nestled on the second floor above L'Occitane on Wicklow Street, is designed with the sole purpose of bringing women together for some quality time, all while getting pampered ahead of a night out.
I went along to see exactly what pre drinks pampering was all about, and to get a sneak peek of what is destined to be one of Dublin's buzziest salons.
The city centre space is, for want of a better term, Instagram-worthy, with a modern but feminine aesthetic, assisted by the paint washed exposed brick, pink neon signs and copper accents.
Steven, the giant dog statue, who looks like a piece of art, is actually a speaker imported from France for the sole purpose of bringing the ultimate ladies night playlist to Dry & Fly's clients, adds to the ambience.
The blow drying stations are positioned specifically so that groups of gal pals can get their hair and nails done as a group ahead of an event, and the salon offers each client a glass of Glendalough gin and tonic garnished with blood orange and rosemary (delish) or a glass of Prosecco to get the party started.
The beauty bar even boasts a DJ booth, where local DJs spin tracks on Friday and Saturday nights while clients enjoy their luxurious blowdries.
Andrew O'Neill, one of the founders and visionaries behind the salon, sought to create a cool, collective experience for women to go straight from the salon to their destination, freshly made up and ready to take the town.
Big, bouncy blow outs are the aim of the creative stylists at Dry & Fly, and and their look book features all the classics, from the sleek and straight glossy blow out to Hollywood waves.
For those feeling a little more experimental, the salon stylists are also well versed in festival braids, dramatic pony tails and up-dos.
The salon deal exclusively with Kevin Murphy hair products, a staple in the beauty arsenals of both beauty bloggers and professional hair stylists across the country.
Gin in hand and after a quick flick through the salon's look book, I settled on the Ty Twist blow dry, a beachy, bouncy look that gave life to my long and admittedly lifeless locks.
I opted for the full experience, getting my hair washed in one of the salon's comfy basins, with a full view of the painted letters on the ceiling, which read 'relax, you're not cheating on your hairdresser.'
You can also come in with your hair washed and just go straight for a dry blow out.
I sat down in one of the socially set-out chairs to have my hair and nails done simultaneously, feeling like I was one pink silk robe away from a backstage Victoria's Secret moment.
The salon seats, laid out so that friends can face each other and chat, were ideal for receiving both treatments at once.
Having two stylists working on my hair and nails seemed like the ultimate pinnacle of having notions, but hey, who doesn't want to feel like they're working with a Kardahian-esque glam squad at least once in their lives?
The salon is open until 10pm on Friday and Saturday for those pre-night out blow dry sessions, and from 7am to 7pm through the rest of the week.
