Learn what's trending across POPSUGAR. Whenever we're buying gifts for friends throughout the year, we often turn to Venessa Arizaga to lead the way. Her creative collection of jewelry combines all the good elements of a friendship bracelet — bright, silk threading and luxe chains with playful, sometimes-kooky charms and natural stones — into age-appropriate pieces that feel oh so personal. "I like to think of each piece I create as a treasure and a good luck charm, something special you want to keep close to you to reflect upon good times and evoke your fondest memories," she's said. So, why wouldn't we seek out her advice for holiday gift ideas? From Venessa's own much-loved pieces (we all know someone who'd appreciate her I Love Tacos accessory) to her go-to giftables, like terrariums and Chanel manicures, we're officially using her list for every friend on ours.

The presentation makes the gift on this one. When you buy nail polish from Chanel, they put it in a little black Chanel shopping bag with their signature flower. I then slip a gift certificate for a manicure in the bag, too. It looks great and shows effort was put into the gift." Chanel Nail Polish $27 from chanel.com Buy Now A terrarium ($129) "A plant can be a very personal and thoughtful gift. I love the idea of gifting something that's living. Terrariums look cool, are customizable, and as far as plants go, they're tough to kill!
