20 Brilliant Gift Ideas That Only Your Bestie Deserves
If you're exchanging gifts with your best friend this year, you know you'll be getting (and gifting!) something from the heart. It doesn't have to cost a fortune, but it should show them just how special they are to you. For the friends who are like family, and who we'd be lost without, here are 20 gift ideas only they'd understand.
Indulge your BFF in the perfect set of lip colors that will have them feeling polished and pretty from desk (or Zoom) to dinners and dates.
For the friend who's always on their phone, here's a personalized case they won't mind looking at all day long.
Balkwan Sunset Lamp ($25)
If they're overdue for a vacation, at least a sunset lamp will make them feel like their favorite jet-setting influencer in their own home.
Vehla Dixie Sunglasses ($160)
For the friend who's always ahead of the trends, make sure these covetable sunglasses are finally theirs.
Esym Scent Pod ($26)
These dreamy scent pods bring the benefits of natural essential oils on the go, so you can indulge a friend who deserves to relax, but never slows down.
Don't just get them a candle, pick up a candle that matches their personality to a T.
Skims Cozy Set ($52+)
If your bestie's a homebody, they'll love snuggling up in this cozy loungewear set (and they've probably already been dreaming about it).
Blissy Sleep Mask ($40)
Give your BFF the gift of a good night's sleep with this pretty silk sleep mask (or the complete silk sleep set).
For the friend who always loses their Airpods, introduce them to a more secure option, that's — dare we say — even chicer than the original.
Bala 1Lb Weight ($49)
Level up your workout buddy's next class or at-home session with these cute (and therefore, motivating!) weights.
Stojo Collapsible Travel Cup ($36 for 2)
Help you coffee-loving bestie help the planet with these reusable and adorable to-go cups.
For your Y2K-obsessed BFF, the one pair of shoes we all miss from the aughties.
Etsy Hand Tufted Mat ($79)
Housewarming gifts can ironically feel a bit cold for someone you're especially close to. For the best friend that just moved, a hand tufted rug is something special.
For the friend who just got engaged, a beautiful place to store their prized new possession.
If they're always hosting viewing parties, wine nights, or venting seshes, thank them with these gorgeous glasses you can share during your next heart-to-heart.
Your friend group's designated DJ deserves a cute speaker to bring to all of your outdoor hangs.
For the friend who's always hosting, a deck of cards worth keeping on display and on hand for party games.
They'll never have to worry about watering their plants again with a gift that can make a plant parent out of anyone.
They might love their dog (ever so slightly) more than you, but at least you know they'll adore this gift.
When you're not there to chat things out together, they can let out all their feels in this pretty notebook with a personal touch.
