A truly great friend is hard to find. When we do find one, two, or more, we need to show them just how much we appreciate them. There are numerous occasions to do that. It can be their birthday, World friendship day, the day you met, or any day you remember just how important your girl bestie is to you.
However, sometimes it’s difficult to come up with something original and equally stylish and awesome as your friend.
While there are easier presents you can send your besties like some free animated ecards or printed graphic tees, finding a gift that's unique may be a little too challenging. And that's why we’re here to help. Here’s a list that will spark your imagination.
Yes, people these days write down most of their chores, ideas, and other notes on their smartphones. But there are still some old-fashioned gals who prefer a more tangible option. Depending on her interest and age, you can choose a notebook with a motivational message on the cover. You can go for something with glitter and unicorns or a more toned-down, stylish option, like minimalist marble notebooks.
If your friend is a driven career woman or has recently started a small business, you can support or motivate her by getting her a set of business cards with her logo and name engraved. This can be an especially thoughtful and endearing gift if your bestie doesn’t yet have her own business but dreams of opening one someday. It’s also a great show of support if she’s planning a big career switch.
A wallet is a safe gift, and you cannot go wrong with a minimalist wallet that has just enough space for business cards, ID, and credit cards. If you’re not sure about the design of the wallet, you can’t make a mistake with a simplistic black marble or leather style.
We’ve all been in a situation where our phone battery dies and we have no way of charging it. This can be particularly stressful if we are somewhere abroad. That’s why a wireless charger makes a great and practical gift for anyone. The best thing about these gadgets is that there are numerous different designs to match everyone’s taste. Your bestie will think of you and be really grateful for this one in times of need.
Our skin is exposed to different external elements, but it also suffers because of our habits, stress, and various health issues. We all need some pampering now and then, and your best friend definitely deserves it. The facial treatment experience can be customized to suit your friend’s needs and address skin health by cleansing, hydrating, providing rejuvenation, and more.

If your best friend is a fitness enthusiast, you have plenty of options. One of them is a gym bag (because you can never get enough of those). If you want the gift to be more elaborate, then you can fill the bag with a water bottle, noise-canceling headphones, and a cute towel.
Is there a local winery in your city? If not, is there one nearby? Most small, family-run wineries offer charming wine-tasting tours. You can hear the history of the winery, snack on some cheese and grapes with different types of wine, and enjoy each other’s company.

Recipe books can be amazing choices even for people who don’t like to cook. Depending on your friend’s interests, the topic of the book can be finger food, Italian cuisine, or mixing up cocktails, to name a few. This can also serve as an incentive for socializing because you can make a deal to prepare one of the recipes together each month.
“Hair is everything. We wish it wasn’t so we could actually think about something else occasionally. But it is. It’s the difference between a good day and a bad day” – this was said in the famous “Fleabag” TV show, and it is the truth. That’s why a visit to the hair salon makes an awesome gift for a girl bestie. Or, you can get your friend a pack of her favorite hair products. She’ll appreciate it.

Vinyl is trending again, and it is a special way of listening to and appreciating music. You probably already know your friend’s favorite band or artist, so you can buy her a vinyl record. If you want to get her something even more spectacular – why not a record player? For a more modern option, you can go for a Spotify premium subscription.
The corona crisis and the lockdown have brought a new trend – constant self-improvement. We’ve learned that we have the time to work on ourselves, and that is amazing. Maybe your friend would love to take some time to learn a new language. A baking course, dancing lessons, or photography lessons can also be fun choices if your girl is interested in something like that.

You have a bunch of memories, inside jokes, and hobbies with your best friend. A personalized gift could embody those emotions and be meaningful for both of you. Here are some ideas:
If your BFF is a busy bee, she probably craves a proper rest. This is something many of us find difficult to do when we have dishes to clean, laundry to fold, groceries to get, kids to pick up from school, etc. Offer to do all those things for her at least one day of the week. During that time, she can take a walk, go to the movies, go shopping, or simply sleep in. This is a gift money can’t buy, and it will definitely show her how much you value her wellbeing and mental health.
It’s simple: our best friends deserve the best. Hopefully, you will find something useful among these suggestions. Or, they might just spark your imagination to think up the best present yet.
