We all have that one best friend - it seems like we’ve known them forever. The friend who knows everything about us, who is always there to listen, and never judges.

Gift Ideas For Your Girl BFF

When specials occasions come around, like birthdays, Christmas, or even graduation, we want to lavish our friend and make them feel as loved as possible. For some people, gift giving comes naturally, while other people can struggle with finding that ‘perfect’ gift. After all, you don’t want to give your best friend something boring or unoriginal. You want something fun and unique – something that you know they’ll absolutely love. Regardless whether gift-giving is your natural love language or something you dread, here are five unique gift ideas for your female best friend.

Something Personalized

Giving a personalized gift can be a fantastic way of showing you care. For that friend who is always cold, a personalized blanket is a wonderful gift. Not only is it unique, but every time they use it they are sure to think of you. For a customized blanket or quilt, you can add pictures or even just words: things like their hometown, the name of their college, etc. The possibilities for a personalized blanket are endless. Personalized gifts don’t have to stop there. Some other great gift ideas include monogrammed tote bags, embroidered bathrobes, customized cutting boards, and even personalized wall-art and welcome mats. Get creative with it and give them a one-of-a-kind item that they’ll be sure to treasure forever.

Something Silly

Maybe you have a friend with a million inside jokes. If that’s the case, don’t be afraid to give them something super silly. Perhaps you have a friend who is majorly into art; you can surprise them with The Bob Ross: Art of Chill board game. This unique game will be sure to make her laugh and is an unexpected yet thoughtfully silly gift. Maybe your best friend from childhood is graduating college. Don’t feel like you must get her a sophisticated graduation gift like everyone else is bound to do. Instead, opt for something silly, like a funny book on adulting. A gift like this helps break the monotony of adult gifts she is already getting and adds laughter to the occasion.

DIY Gift Box

You can even opt out of giving them one substantial gift and create a DIY gift box instead. For example, if you have a friend who loves pampering herself, you can give her a gift box filled with her favorite spa items. Items like bath bombs, face masks, and even a pair of fuzzy socks are a must for this type of gift. For a friend that is getting ready to go to college, you could make then a college survival box and put in items like vitamin C tablets, band-aids, duct tape, snack foods, etc. If you have a friend who’s a bit sentimental, you might even opt for something like a box full of “open when” letters instead. They could include things like “open when you feel homesick”, “open when you need a good laugh”, “open on a rainy day”, etc. To spice it up a little, you could add things like pictures, gift cards, and encouraging notes to give the letters a more personal touch. Sometimes there’s nothing more meaningful than a gift you make yourself.

An Experience

Another idea is to opt out of giving them a tangible gift altogether. Instead of giving your best friend a physical gift, give them an experience. An experience could include taking them to see their favorite band in concert or taking them to an amusement park like Busch Gardens. Another exciting idea is to take them restaurant hopping. Or if you have a group of people, you could rent a cabin for a weekend getaway instead. You could even sign the two of you up for a class you know they have always wanted to take - whether it’s a cooking class, a dance class, or even a class on American Sign Language. While there is nothing wrong with giving tangible items, sometimes the memories you make by giving them an experience is far more valuable. Just like with personized gifts, the ideas are endless, and there is so much room for creativity with a gift like this.

Comfortable Women’s Shoes & Other Accessories

Lastly, for a friend who is on their feet all day long, give them a pair of comfortable, yet, stylish shoes. Something like comfortable wedges or platform sandals can make a great gift for the style-conscious friend! Or if you have a friend who hates wedges, give them a comfy pair of flats or even casual sneakers. If comfort is what your friend is all about, look for women’s shoes that are made of genuine leather and have memory foam padding. Obviously, it helps to know their shoe size first, so you may have to do a little bit of detective work if you want this to be a surprise. But if you pull it off, this thoughtful gift is a great way to show you care, and they are sure to thank you for it. You don’t have to stop at buying shoes either. Consider giving them a new tote bag they can use for work, or a comfy new sweatshirt. People like gifts that they can use daily, and when it comes to finding gifts for your best gal pals, you can’t go wrong with fashionable finds!

Conclusion

So, whether you are the world’s best gift giver or the worst, here are five creative ways to spice up your gift giving. As with anything, you can tweak each gift idea to meet your friend’s unique style. Don’t be afraid to get creative with it and think outside the box. And remember, at the end of the day, regardless of if your gift is spot on or not, it truly is the thought that counts.
