One of the best days of the year is almost here: Christmas! A very special date because it allows us to take a break from daily hustle and bustle and focus on our family and loved ones. Of course, another thing that is very exciting is the exchange of gifts! If you still don’t know what to get your best friend, don’t worry. At Latina Cool, we’ve taken on the task of trying out and choosing some quite useful and practical items that are sure to please.

Makeup kit for your glam friend


If your friend is one of those who can’t leave the house without putting on some lipstick, she will love this kit! It contains a lip balm to moisturize and retain lip color and includes a burnt red lipstick that is quite sexy! There’s also black eyeliner to define and deepen the look and a peach glitter eye shadow for that final touch of glamour. Bonus tip: if you buy it now, you can get a better price by taking advantage of the Black Friday deals (Everything is 30% off!) MAC Cosmetics, from $49.50 to $34.65 (for a limited time).

Board game to strengthen your friendship

Board games that inspire conversation topics are a hit among friends. They will help you get to know your BFF’s better while giving them hours and hours of conversation. Friendship is an excellent option for a topic. There you will find questions like, “Which person has made you feel like you’ve known them all your life? How did you meet your BFF?” Table Topics, $25.

Necklace with panic button for protection

One of the coolest gift ideas we discovered in 2021 is a line of smart jewelry that protects you from dangerous situations, thanks to its included panic button. How does it work? With a double click on the back of the charm, you can alert your friends and family if you need help. Your emergency contacts will receive a message with a link to your location and, at the same time, you have the option to install the 911 tool to connect directly with the police. What better gift than this! InvisaWear, $126

Travel kit for girls with waves

If your friend has beautiful curly or wavy hair, she’s sure to love all kinds of products that promote the care of her mane. Australian line Mermade Hair offers several options that will help you achieve that sexy effortless summer wave look. This kit, for example, includes a mini curling iron, a heat-protective glove, a special wave brush, a set of silk pillowcases, a bag to transport your curling iron safely and a donut to style your hair. Mermade Hair, $82

For the friend who doesn’t miss a Happy Hour

Do you have a friend who loves cocktails? Then you have to give her a subscription to Mixology Mixer, a company created by Loni Paige, an entrepreneur who saw in the pandemic an opportunity to teach people how to make their own drinks after bars and restaurants closed. This concept includes all the tools you need to make cool, themed drinks for your parties and/or virtual gatherings. Subscription prices range from $70-$140, depending on the package you choose. Subscriptions range from 3 months to 12 months and, in your first shipment, you will receive all the tools you need to make expert-level mixes.

Device for the friend who won’t let go of her smartphone

We all have a friend who never lets go of her iPhone. If you want to surprise her, we recommend this device. It is a wireless charger designed for iPhone 12. This tool allows you to connect up to two electronic devices to charge. Best of all, it has a magnet that places the smartphone exactly where it should go, so you don’t have to look for the exact charging spot. Your friend will thank you! PowerPad Cables, $79.99

Gloves for the cold ones

It is common that when you wear gloves you can’t use your phone, and with the cold weather, you’d rather keep your gloves on. The good thing is that there are now touch screen designs that let you continue to use your smartphone without mishap. A gift like this would be perfect for your friend who’s always freezing to death – it’ll be one of the most practical and chic gifts she’ll receive this Christmas! Amazon, $12.95

Necklace for pet lovers

If your friend is an animal lover, she will love this necklace. The Diphda brand, created in 2020, comes with an innovative concept based on jewelry design that promotes the cosmic connection between humans, animals and Mother Earth. In other words, it includes jewelry designs that you can wear to match your pet! The company uses sustainable products and local labor, to promote fair trade. Diphda, $88.88

This is Last Call Drink Game, a game for those 21 and older, designed to keep party guests entertained for up to 90 minutes. Among the challenges you’ll find in this game are: “Send a selfie via private message to an unknown person who follows you…or drink,” or “The person who is most likely to make decisions based on their zodiac sign has to drink.” LastCall, $19.90

For the joking and funny friend

If you have a friend who loves to tell jokes or just have a lot of fun, you have to give her this game!

Pajamas for the friend who is happy to stay at home

If your friend is one of those who counts the days until the weekend arrives, (not to go out dancing but to stay in pajamas), you have to give her these! These outfits are super comfy, fashionable and will also be super discounted for Black Friday. So, if you haven’t bought a gift yet, run to Macys. Alfani, $69.50 to $29.99
