Your best friend is someone special in your life. Personally, I have two people who I consider my best friends, and they are very special to me. They have been by my side for many years and are my go-to people.

Since your best friends are likely as special to you, when it comes time to find them a gift, you want it to reflect how honored they are. Finding gifts for best friends can be difficult. No matter how hard you look, it seems like nothing is quite right.

In this gift guide, I will provide a list of gifts that will hopefully help you with your gift hunt.

Here are 80 wonderful gifts for best friends!

GIFTS WITH BEST FRIEND MESSAGES

1. My Person Morse Code Bracelet

Lcherry Morse Code Bracelet

If you are like me, you may be a few hours away from your best friend. I go to school two hours away from my best friend. We don’t get to see each other often and miss each other constantly.

This bracelet is perfect for those long distance-friendships. It has “My Person” in morse code on the bracelet, and it comes in a pair: one for you and one for your best friend.

You can each wear this everyday and be reminded of the other person. It is simple, cute, and discrete; something just you two know about.

2. “I Always Wished For a Friend Like You” Candle 

Pavilion Gift Company 77114 Plain Dandelion Candle

Candles have become a new favorite of mine. I have bought several as well as received several as gifts.

This candle in particular has one of my favorite childhood activities on it, wishing on dandelions. This candle is perfect to show your best friend how special they are.

The message “I always wished for a friend like you” captures the meaning of the dandelions and the special relationship the two of you have. It is simple, but still meaningful. Plus, everytime they light the candle, they will be reminded of you.

3. “Why You are my Bestie” fill in notebook

Knock Knock Why You’re My Bestie Fill-in-the-Blank Gift Journal
I think books like these are the cutest idea. My best friend gave me a similar book for my birthday a few years ago and I Iove it. It sits on my desk and I love going back through and reading what she wrote in it.
Everything she wrote perfectly sums up our friendship. You get to choose how to fill in each line. You can make it silly, sweet or a mixture of both. You can write all of the inside jokes and memories that you two share.
This gift is perfect for any best friend in your life, and no one else will have the exact same one, because you fill it out yourself. Whenever your best friend misses you, they can read this book and remember all the times you’ve shared.

4. “You Are My Best Friend” Sign  

“You Are My Best Friend” Sign

This one is pretty simple: a wooden sign that lists how important your best friend is to you.

I am a sucker for these types of signs. Whenever I see them at the store, I am constantly reading them and showing them to whoever I’m with.

These are great for decorations on shelves, desks, dressers, and more. They are not too expensive and can come in a variety of phrases, so you can find one that matches your best friend perfectly.

5. Best Friend Ring Dish

Best Friend Ring Dish

Finding a place to put your jewelry at the end of the night can be a struggle. If you do not have a designated place to put your rings and such, you almost always end up losing them.

For the longest time, I just put my rings wherever I felt like, which is why a ring dish with a message about best friends is a great gift for a friend who wears a lot of jewelry.

It can work for rings, bracelets, necklaces, and any other type of small jewelry. Plus, the sweet message will be something they can read at the end of the day so they go to bed with a positive message and while thinking of you.

6. Friendship Keychain 

Sister Key Chain, Always My Sister Forever My Friend

This may seem like a cheesy gift or one that your friend may not enjoy. However, if my best friend got this gift for me, I would love it.

A keychain is a simple gift, but one they most likely would have not thought about. Keys are an item they most likely have with them all the time, so they will always have your gift with them.

 Plus, the quote is sweet and simple and shows them how special you think they are. It may be cheesy, but it is also a wonderful gift for your best friend.

That way, when they are packing to visit, they are reminded of you and the special friendship you two have.

NIX 10.1 Inch Digital Picture Frame

I am sure you and your best friend have at least a few pictures together. They are probably a mixture of nice ones, silly ones, and some with no explanation at all.

You could print all the photos out and try and find a way to put them on display. However, that can be time-consuming and expensive.

This digital picture frame is a time-saving solution. It allows your best friend to load in their favorite pictures of you two and have them rotate throughout the day.

The pictures can rotate through automatically, or you can control when they change, so if your friend has one picture they want to have on display for some time, they can.

Shiatsu Back and Neck Massager

I know I feel like I need a massage everyday, especially when I’m stressed, or when my neck hurts from constantly being hunched over my laptop doing school work. Which is why you should give the gift of a neck massager to your best friend.

One, it benefits them because they can get pain relief whenever they need, and two, it relieves you from having to give them neck massages when they are in pain. It is a win-win in my book.

Plus, if they are in less pain, then they are probably more pleasant, which means no cranky friends. So, overall, this is a great gift for your best friend.

Best Christmas Gifts (Overall)

1.  Reversible Yoga Mat

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.

HoMedics® TotalClean™ 4-in-1 Air Purifier in White

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.

I am sure your best friend will love these shoes. That's why they are one of the top ideas to give your best friend for Christmas.

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.
