Now that you know what White Elephant gifts to bring to the party, your next job is to find the most amazing Christmas gift for your best friend.
Since gift-giving symbolizes love, finding the perfect Christmas gift is challenging and daunting because you would want to avoid getting a gift that doesn’t reflect your friendship.
Don’t worry. I have rounded up the best 55 Christmas gift ideas for best friends.
In this post:
Best Christmas Gifts Overall
One of the many things lockdown taught us is to find time for ourselves to practice any sort of physical activity.
The ultimate Christmas gift you can give your friend is the gift of this chic and functional yoga mat from Lululemon.
Whether as a replacement for your friend’s probably worn-out yoga mat or to introduce them to the beauty of exercising, this mat is the best gift.
The mat comes in eight styles, so you can personalize it to your bestie’s taste.
Plus, if your friend is like me and loves switching yoga mat colors, then this is the perfect gift to buy for them.
2. Air Purifier
Nothing says that you care for your best friend more than the gift of an air purifier.
Health is wealth, as they say, and most things up in the air are sketchy and can affect your friend’s well-being!
Problem solved, because this air purifier captures and removes pollen, dust, smoke, pet dander, mold spores, and germs, so you can ensure your friends’ safety.
The feature that I love the most about this product is the ionizer that purifies the air around me.
This purifier is one of the top gifts you can give to your best friend.
3. Air Force 1s
If a simple Air Force 1 isn’t up to you or your best friend’s taste, then the gift of a customized pair is the best one to give them this Christmas.
You can customize this gift according to what your best friend truly likes.
I love that every aspect of the shoe can be altered and changed because I can tailor it to my friend’s aesthetic.
If you really want something customizable, then this is the best gift to give.
If your special someone frequently misplaces things, then the best Christmas Day tech gift to give them is these Tile Essentials.
The pack includes 1 Mate, 1 Slim, and 2 Stickers, all equipped with Bluetooth trackers so they can easily locate things like keys, wallets, etc.
The free app on iOS or Android can help with the tracking. Your special someone would appreciate this gift, and maybe realize that they should be more aware of their bearings.
5. Laptop Stand
No more sore neck for your best friend when you get them the OTM Essentials Adjustable Laptop Stand. Being on your devices for most of the day won’t just strain your eyes, but also your neck from looking down at laptop screens.
One way to say that you care about your best friend is to give them the gift of this laptop stand, so they can level their devices within sight, preventing any neck strain.
I love that the stand is adjustable because most laptop stands on the market are fixed, which isn’t optimal for everyone, but with this, I can adjust it to where I feel most comfortable.
Don’t discount comfort; it matters, especially if it’s a Christmas gift for your best friend.
Christmas Gifts For Your Girl Best Friend
Chic and comfortable, these wide-leg cropped pants are the definition of comfort that doesn’t discount style.
It’s perfect for your friend who loves yoga and is always on the go. You can’t go wrong with these as a Christmas gift.
I love that they don’t look like your typical yoga pants.
I can totally see my girl besties rocking these on their coffee runs or on a sunny trip to the zoo.
With five colors available, you can personalize these wide-leg pants to your girl best friend’s taste.
For your girl best friend that adores classic films, especially ones starring Audrey Hepburn, this Oliver Gal wall art that exhibits the famous scene from Breakfast at Tiffany’s is the perfect Christmas gift.
Combining both Holly Golightly’s timeless fashion and the wacky deed of bubble gum blowing, this wall art captures the timelessness of youth and will surely brighten your best friend’s space.
I adore that Holly has bubble gum on her in this wall art; it makes the art more captivating
8. Maxi Dress
The most amazing gift you can get for your girl best friend is this maxi dress, especially if she is fond of dresses in her day-to-day activities.
I love that this dress doesn’t limit movement. Most dresses don't allow for total movement, but with this one, pretty doesn’t have to hurt.
The dress comes in so many different stunning colors, and it includes a black one that can be worn and styled with different things.
I believe that your best friend would love this gift.
Some say that giving gift cards as a Christmas gift is lazy and impersonal, but I disagree, especially when you know that the one you’re giving the gift card to would truly appreciate it.
For your friends who loves doing their makeup, your best friend who adores skincare, or the one who just loves window shopping at Sephora, a Sephora gift card is the perfect gift.
You can’t go wrong with this gift because your bestie can use the gift card for whatever in Sephora makes their hearts flutter.
Sometimes I misplace my rings and bracelets, but the worst of all is when my necklaces tangles, and it feels like there is no way out but to cut them, which makes me sad.
If you have a friend who owns countless pieces of jewelry, then this jewelry organizer is the best gift to give them.
One of the most amazing features of this organizer is that you can hang your necklaces, preventing any future tangles.
This Pandora sterling silver bracelet with a heart clasp is an amazing Christmas gift for your girl best friend.
I love the timeless look and the snake-like chain of the bracelet because it mimics an expensive bracelet, but this one won’t break the bank.
If your bestie loves things that shine, then there is no doubt that this is the perfect gift for her.
Avocado toast is, hands down, one of the best go-to meals that I eat.
Sometimes, avocados can get expensive, but it is unfortunate when you run out of them.
Your best friend might feel the same way that I do about avocados, and I found a solution.
As a Christmas gift, this avocado tree growing kit is perfect to give to your best friend.
This unique gift will surely bring a smile to your best friend’s face because it increases the success rate of avocado germination.
After a while, your friend will soon have their avocado tree and avocado fruit to make smoothies, guacamole, and avo toasts with.
13. Crop Tank
This Nike crop tank with a mock collar will be a fashion hit.
I love that it looks versatile and can match with other clothing articles because most clothing pieces that can do this become a wardrobe staple.
Give your girl best friend the gift of style by giving them this crop tank as a Christmas gift.
Not only will she appreciate it, but she’ll thank you when it becomes one of the things in her closet she can’t live without.
If you want to go the extra mile this Christmas for your girl best friend, who you now consider family, then you can get her the Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer from Bed Bath & Beyond.
This hairdryer prevents extreme heat damage to the hair and helps keep it shiny. Plus, it’s engineered for different hair types.
While air-drying your hair is free and easy to do, the benefits of using this Dyson hairdryer are far greater.
I love it because the hair dryer keeps the hair looking fresh compared to the just-woke-up-look when it’s air-dried.
15. Facial Steamer
The gift of ultimate relaxation comes in the form of this facial steamer that you can get your best friend as a Christmas gift.
I love having this in my room because I love doing spa-day Fridays, especially when it’s been a long week!
My face feels stretched and more open after using the device, and I feel like my skincare products are more effective when I steam my face first.
Give your bestie this pleasure, and when they invite you for a hangout, you can steam your faces together and have a relaxing night.
This facial steamer is truly the perfect gift for your best friend.
Mobilo is the perfect gift for savvy professionals this Holiday season. Bring physical and digital networking together with a Mobilo smart business card.
Share contact info, gather leads, and connect with apps & CRM tools. With just one card, the opportunities are endless.
Mobilo cards come in multiple material options, like plastic, wood and metal. They can be endlessly customizable and designed to perfection with your logo and brand.
-END OF PAID AD-
One other item for the ultimate relaxing experience is this facial cleansing system.
Getting this for your best friend as a Christmas gift will help them love cleansing their faces even more; it will keep their face clean and free of dirt that’s invisible to the eyes.
I like that the product comes in three different brush sizes because I can choose whether I want to cleanse or exfoliate, or I can use the other brush if my skin feels a little sensitive.
It’s a truly wonderful purchase, and it’s an even more amazing gift to give to your best friend.
No one likes a space that doesn't have a little flair, and if your friend is like me, who loves decorating their spaces, then I would give them this brass candle holder as a Christmas gift.
I love the modern design of the candle holder, and I’m sure that your friend will love it too, especially if they are going for modern rustic decor.
The product will be the perfect addition to any room; it will be an eye-catcher. I love that the tinted glass creates the illusion of a soft glow on the holder.

The set comes with a teapot, a loose leaf tea canister, a tray, and four teacups. This covers everything you’ll need for an intimate tea party with friends.
I love how sleek it looks and that it comes with a tray that absorbs spills for easy clean-up.
If you are going for a classic Christmas gift, then look no further because classic comes in the form of a sweater.
Give the gift of warmth and style with Amazon Essentials’ lightweight sweater that comes in ten colors.
I love that it is a mock neck sweater because I think that the mock neck adds more style and flair to the piece.
I am sure that your friend would appreciate this gift and will think of you whenever they pull out this staple from their wardrobe.
For the best friend who is well-read or the one who wants her own library at home, the most amazing Christmas gift is this four-tier bookcase, which can hold many books and will fit perfectly in anyone’s room.
I love the modern design on this one, and it looks sturdy enough to hold heavy books.
The bookcase is spacious enough for other trinkets too!

Its sleek design is very eye-catching, and I love that there are options to purchase how many cups you can make.
Plus, the handle is cool-touch for safety! Your friend would definitely love brewing aromatic coffees from here and they will think of you every time they use it.

This Lululemon tote is another great college bag for any girl. It’s large in size, has a drawstring top for easy access to your belongings, and is made of a water-repellent fabric.
I recommend this stylish bag to someone who has a more sporty, yet relaxed style. This bag is perfect for holding everything you need and making you look fashionable.
24. Snap Scarf
Personally, I think that scarves are versatile enough.
This scarf can be transformed into a wrap, a cardigan, or an infinity scarf. It can be used in many different ways, which is why I love it!
You’re giving your best friend the Christmas gift of versatility if you give them this scarf.
25. Apple Watch Nike
Apple watches are godsent. I use mine constantly for almost everything, but what I love most is that it keeps me away from my phone.
I can check messages and receive calls from my watch, which are the primary uses of a mobile phone, steering me away from distractions like social media.
It can also remind me of tasks that need to be done, help me set an alarm, and do many other things.
Your best friend would love this gift. Plus, it comes with a sleek Nike band that is simply stunning.
Christmas Gifts For Your Guy Best Friend
26. Mud Mask
Guys need the gift of relaxation too, and there’s no better gift than this clarifying mud mask for blemish-prone skin.
This facial mask removes impurities from your skin, improving its appearance.
I love that the product is made with natural ingredients and is cruelty-free. Most products that claim to be natural have hidden chemicals in them that are harmful to the skin.
Introduce your guy best friend to the world of facial masks by giving him this mud mask as a Christmas gift.
27. Surge Short
For your guy best friend who loves to go out on runs, the Surge Short from Lululemon is the perfect gift.
The lightweight, four-way stretch and sweat-wicking fabric allows for total running movement and ease.
With fifteen colors, you can personalize the gift to your best friend’s preference.
I love that it’s sweat-wicking because most running shorts stick to sweat, making it hard to move.
With these shorts, movement will be easy even when sweating a lot.
As someone who likes running from time to time, I think this is the perfect gift for your best friend this Christmas.
He would highly appreciate the comfort and style.
28. Nike Golf Bag
If your guy best friend loves golf or was just introduced to the wonderful sport, then this Nike golf bag is the best gift you can get him this Christmas.
While golf facilities usually offer club and bag rentals, it’s better when you own one; it removes the extra time of renting and then playing with clubs and bags that are usually overused.
This Nike bag has a water-resistant hood to protect the clubs from wet weather, and the durable and lightweight material makes it easy to lug around the course.
I love the classic design of Nike golf bags! There are tons of bags out there, but many golfers use this one for a reason. Your golfer best friend would love this gift!
29. Slim Wallet
It’s hard to find wallets slim enough to fit in your jeans or shorts pocket.
Usually, regular wallets create an unnecessary and sometimes uncomfortable bulge that is inconvenient, especially when you’re always on the go.
Problem solved! This slim wallet from Amazon combines functionality and design.
Your best friend will appreciate the space the wallet provides so they can store their cards, IDs, and cash without having to worry about the size of the wallet.
I love that it can store up to ten cards without the wallet being hefty to carry around.
Give your guy best friend the gift of ease in shaving by giving them this shaving set.

The art shows a bunny in a three-piece suit, combining quirky and professional.
This eccentric wall art will be the focal point of any room.
The background on the art is what I love; it’s toned down so you really see the bunny popping out.

Personally, I love that I can dock my controllers on the station and they’ll charge, instead of having to plug and unplug cords.
Make your guy best friend happy this Christmas and get him the gift he’ll appreciate the most.
34. Screen Magnifier
For the best friend who loves watching and chilling, this screen magnifier is the best Christmas gift.
The screen magnifier acts like a projector for small phone screens, magnifying it to give its users a better viewing experience.
I love that the product is lightweight and portable, so I can bring it anywhere with me.
It’s a great substitute for carrying around a 15-inch laptop to watch Netflix shows.
A style that doesn’t discount comfort is 2023’s biggest trend.
But this doesn’t mean that you have to give up on looking good and presentable. It just means you have to find the right product that elicits both.
The joggers are designed for people on the move and who love comfort! Plus, the design mimics that of chinos.
This is the best gift you could get for your guy best friend this Christmas.
