Is your best friend’s birthday approaching, have they got a new job or do simply want to buy them a little something just to remind them how much they mean to you? Friendship is so important valuable to so many of us, so from time to time, it’s nice to spoil our best buddies. Here are some gorgeous gift ideas to give you inspiration before you set off on a shopping trip.
Does your best friend love makeup or is her bathroom reminiscent of an apothecary? Beauty gifts are a great option for those who love to try out new products and indulge in a little pampering. The best thing about going down this route is the versatility. You can spend as much or as little as you like and you can buy everything from nail varnish and mascara to brand new brush sets and the latest skincare gadgets. If you want to treat your bestie to something special, why not book her a facial or a relaxing massage? This will be particularly well-received if she’s been busy of late or she’s been under pressure at work.
Gifts for the home
Is your BFF a big fan of interior design? Is she always on the lookout for new accessories or quirky pieces to make her home unique? If so, why not do some investigating online or pay some antiques or vintage stores a visit? Sites like Cuckooland have an eclectic range of home gifts, and you can even design customized items to add that personal touch. You could go for perennial gift list favorites like candles or vases or opt for something a little different like off-the-wall planters for the terrace or framed personalized prints.
Do you wish you could spend more time with your friends? Do you only get to see each other now and again? If so, why not give her the gift of your time and arrange a friend date. You could hit the mall and shop up a storm, book a weekend away in the city, hit the road and go camping or even just book a table for dinner and enjoy a few cocktails and a good catch up.
If your friend is a fashionista, why not channel their style and buy a gift for their wardrobe? You could opt for an item of clothing or a new accessory, such as a bag, a brooch or some earrings. When you’re shopping around, consider their personal style and taste, and look for something that automatically makes you think of them. Hit the stores they frequent, and try and think about what they would buy.
Shopping for gifts can be tricky. It can be hard to buy for other people, especially if their style is different to yours. If your best friend is about to celebrate their birthday, or you’re looking for a gift to say thank you or to cheer her up, bear these suggestions in mind, and hopefully, you’ll find the perfect present.
