How To Pick The Perfect Best Friend Gift

Our BFFs know us as well as (or sometimes better than) we know ourselves. Our partners in crime are there through thick and thin, and we don’t always take the time to acknowledge what their friendship means. There are a few obvious occasions through the year where we can take the time to show them we care, for example, a Birthday or Christmas. It’s also a good idea to be spontaneous every now and then, and surprise them just because.

But how do you know what the best gift for your best friend is? Well, the bad news is there’s no one right answer. Our BFFs are unique individuals who have their own interests and passions. The good news is, we’ve gone through a ton of painstaking research to come up with some of the all around top gift categories, and there’s a good chance one of those will be just what she’s looking for this Holiday Season.

Our Gift Idea Brainstorming Basics

There are some time tested strategies your search for best friend gift ideas we present to you below (no pun intended). The categories and items above should help you get the creative juices flowing, but these tips can help take your gifting game to the next level:

1) Think about her hobbies and passions…

It may sound obvious, but she almost certainly has some activities she enjoys doing in her spare time. Sewing, gardening, cooking, Yoga or whatever floats her boat all go hand-in-hand with tons of materials, equipment, tools, etc that can make an excellent choice for any gift giving occasion.

2) What would she love, but never buy for herself…

She deserves to be spoiled, and many girls won’t take it upon themselves to do the spoiling. If your BFF falls into this category, think of something extravagant or frivolous that she wouldn’t necessarily buy on her own. Presents don’t have to be practical to be appreciated!

3) Check with her other friends or romantic partner… Asking her other friends or partner for ideas isn’t cheating! Sometimes she’ll mention something she’d love to have in passing when you aren’t around, and asking around is one way to get that info.

Our Time Tested Gifting Principles

Beyond the brainstorming basics, there are a few guiding principles you should keep in mind:

  1. Price isn’t everything - sometimes the most cherished gifts are handmade, inexpensive, or free.
  2. Practical isn’t always right - treating her to something she may not buy for herself is always a good idea.
  3. Give from the heart - something that holds deeper meaning for her is sure to make a lasting impression.
  4. Be inventive - truly unique and creative gifts mean thinking outside the box.
