Classic black is always in style. While some people like to shy away from it, we fully embrace the darkness by gravitating toward black clothing, black home decor, and black nail art. After all, you can’t say something “is the new black” if black wasn’t so popular to begin with. A truly thoughtful gift is one with your friend’s preferences in mind. So if your buddy is, like us, a lady in black, make sure to select a gift that comes in her favorite color.
1. Anthropologie Black Metallic Socks ($14): Socks are truly the best gift; these are not your basic black socks. The smooth material is accented with silver metallic thread that perfectly pops out if your bestie wants to rock fancy socks like a true “It-Girl.”
2. Marc Jacobs Le Marc Lip Crème Lipstick in Blacquer ($30): This dark, shiny shade was inspired by Marc Jacobs’ Fall 2016 line. It’s guaranteed to give anyone a witchy, glamorous pout that looks awesome for fall and winter.
3. Herbivore Bamboo Charcoal Detoxifying Soap ($12): Dark black soap actually leaves behind squeaky clean and brightened skin. Your bestie will love lathering up with this deliciously scented, detoxifying soap.
4. Black KitchenAid Stand Mixer ($300): Bring some chic, black accents to your friend’s kitchen, and maybe get some cookies out of it too. KitchenAid has a wide range of beautifully colored stand mixers, including one in an irresistible matte black.

11. Ten Strawberry Street Black Ceramic Dinnerware ($100): Mom might not agree with our love of dark colors, and that’s fine. She can stick to her crisp white plates while we dine off this set of dishes in our favorite color. It’s a bold move, and we love it.
12. Curaprox Black Toothpaste ($27): Your friend can keep their pearly whites even whiter by adding a dash of black for a few minutes.
