Your bestie’s one of the only people who truly chooses you, through triumphs and tears; barrier-breaking moments, and breakups, too. Finding unique best friend gifts for such a special, supportive person can prove challenging, especially when you know them so well (and can tell when they actually love a present—and when they’re just bullshitting).
Still, there’s a delightful little something for every BFF out there, and we’re here to help you find that perfect gift. Whether you’re shopping for a birthday gift, holiday gift, or I-miss-you gift for a long-distance friendship or girlfriend, we’ve rounded up creative, thoughtful gift ideas for all sorts of friends, including self-care and wellness gift sets and gift boxes for a mini spa day, personalized accessories and keepsakes, useful gadgets, and amusing trinkets that show your “person” just how grateful you are to have them in your life.
For the Lane to your Rory (or, cough, Rory to your Lane), the Aneesa and Fabiola to your Maitreyi, here are our favorite best friend gifts that you can shop at Etsy, Amazon, Nordstrom, Uncommon Goods, Anthropologie, Urban Outfitters, Madewell, and more. (And if you’re shopping for a Christmas gift, we recommend shopping sooner rather than later so you can put the task out of your mind.)
