All I want for Christmas is...anything but another tube of hand sanitizer.

Unless the people you love are all hoarders, nobody really wants candles, ballpens, or hand sanitizers. It's impersonal and uncreative, and those are the last things any Candy Girl should be this Christmas season. So grab those art supplies, because tonight, you're turning your bedroom into Manila's very own Santa's workshop.

 1  For your techie friend

If you hear the clicking of keys on her laptop more than you hear her voice, it may seem a tad bit difficult to decipher what this tanning-via-computer-light friend has on her wishlist, but worry not, because nothing says "I love you despite your anti-socialness" than a good old gadget pouch to store her portable life source in when she's moving around from one free WiFi hotspot to another.

 2  For your artsy friend

Paint the picture of the perfect gift giver and make your friend some simpler-than-it-looks canvas art. You may not be Van Gogh, but you'll definitely be lighting up her face like a starry night once you hand her this heartfelt and homemade masterpiece.

 4  For the fashionista

 5  For the fitness buff

You can't go wrong with a personalized cap. You just can't.

 6  For the busy friend

The morning rush is a battle that every busy bee finds him or herself standing against. Get them the armor they need to handle all their weapons of mass creation to withstand the concrete jungle chaos.
