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.
Here are fifty wonderful gifts for your best friend!
In this post
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.
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.

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.
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.
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.
This gift is great if you and your best friend are living far apart from one another. You can get them a mug that has the two locations on it with hearts that have a line connecting the two places.
I think this is super cute and meaningful. It represents your friendship stretching across a distance and how you are always in one another’s hearts.
Plus, you can never have too many mugs in your collection.
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.
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.
Having a bag that can fit all of your toiletries when traveling is important.
Also, if you live far away from your best friend and want them to visit you often, they are going to need one. So why not get them one that also has a message of why they are loved and special to you?
That way, when they are packing to visit, they are reminded of you and the special friendship you two have.
My best friend got me a set like this for my birthday and I thought it was the cutest thing. It has a candle, a pair of socks, and a tumbler: the basics for the start of a self-care night.
She can wear fuzzy socks, light the candle, put her favorite drink in the tumbler, and relax.
I use my tumbler and wear my socks on the regular, so I can attest to the usefulness of this gift. Your best friend will love this set too.
10. Furry Slippers
When I hang out with my best friend, we typically only wear comfy clothes. We don’t bother with doing our hair or make-up. We live in leggings and sweatshirts.
I am sure if we had slippers, we would be wearing them all the time. So, if your best friend also loves comfy and soft clothes, these are perfect for them.
They can keep their feet warm in these fuzzy slippers as they work or watch a movie. Slippers are the perfect addition to any lazy, comfy outfit.
11. Shower Steamers
Everyone knows about bath bombs and how they are essential for relaxation. My best friend and I are obsessed with bath bombs and are constantly ordering more of them.
Well, these shower steamers are just like bath bombs, but for the shower. This is the perfect gift for your best friend if they are not a fan of baths, but still want the bath bomb experience.
They dissolve just like a bath bomb and have essential oils for relaxation. Plus, the variety of scents allow them to find a scent that is perfect for them.
The gift of relaxation is never a wrong way to go.
Essential oils are said to have many different benefits depending on what type you’re using.
This set of ten essential oils will allow your bestie to try out various oils and experience their benefits. They may see benefits in their physical and mental health and overall wellness.
In times where paying attention to your physical and mental health is important, providing your bestie with a method to help improve those areas is a great idea.
These essential oils, which come with a storage case, are a perfect gift for your best friend.
To go along with the essential oils, your best friend may need an essential oil diffuser. This way they can just drop some of the oils in and turn it on, letting it run while they go about their day.
They can have it on while they do work if the oil is supposed to help them focus, or have it on while they sleep if the oil is meant to help them sleep.
They can also control the diffuser to the level they find most comfortable. They can even change the color to fit the mood they are going for.
I think this would be an amazing and useful gift to receive from my best friend, and I bet your friends would think the same.
Warm and fuzzy blankets are always a win in the gift department. I have several in my collection, and in my opinion, you can never have too many.
This one in particular will make your best friend warm and fuzzy because it is a blanket, but also because it is full of positive and loving words.
This blanket will warm them on the outside as well as on the inside.
15. Bathtub Tray
This may not make sense to some, but to me this is a genius gift: a tray that you can use in the bathtub so you can have a drink, some sort of entertainment like a book or movie, and space for whatever else you may need.
If I had one of these, I would use it on the regular. This gift is perfect for a friend who loves long, relaxing baths, or who just wants to unwind after a long day or week and forget everything else.
Use this with some bath bombs and bubble bath and it is a perfect relaxing gift.
16. 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.
17. Bath Bombs
If you couldn’t already tell, I think gifts that allow your best friend to relax are the way to go. Which is why bath bombs are another great gift for your best friend.
This brand of bath bombs is my personal favorite. So if your best friend enjoys taking baths and could use some help relaxing, get them some bath bombs.
18. Self-Care Box
If you know you want to go the self-care route but are not quite sure what to get, then this box is the way to go.
It is a curated box of various products for self-care and wellness. It has tea, bath bombs, face masks, socks, soap, and other self-care related items.
Your best friend will be set for many days of self-care with this box. Plus, it is an easy gift for you because you just have to buy the box and not worry about finding all the separate items.
This item has been a lifesaver in our apartment.
You just throw it in the microwave for a few minutes and you have a heating pad that lasts a while. You can wrap it around your neck, shoulders, back, stomach, and almost anywhere else.
It works great to soothe whatever pain you are having. You can shape it to the area you need the heat to focus on. Pair this with the neck massager for a great set of gifts.
20. Therapy Dough
This gift is perfect to give to your best friend when they are stressed. It is a stress-relieving putty that you pinch and squeeze.
Using this, they can focus all of their anger and stress into the putty. So, if your best friend is looking for something to help with stress and anger, then this is the perfect gift for them.
My best friend and I have become obsessed with our zodiac signs and horoscopes.
If you and your best friend are just as interested in zodiac signs, this is the perfect gift: a necklace that showcases to everyone what their sign is, and one they can wear proudly.
I know I often wear my zodiac necklace with pride.
22. Jewelry Cleaner
This may not seem like a great gift idea at first. But as someone who constantly wears the same pieces of jewelry day after day and rarely takes them off, this is a great idea, even if it’s one that you don’t think of at first.
Jewelry gets dirty and discolored and can be hard to clean. So, if your best friend also wears the same pieces of jewelry, this is a great gift.
They can clean their pieces and make them look shiny and beautiful again. They can then continue to wear their favorite pieces without worrying about how they look.
A cute t-shirt with a powerful message, this is the perfect gift for your best friend. The message “be kind” is simple, but is one that people need to be reminded of from time to time.
So why not get your best friend a shirt with the message on it, so they can remind everyone they encounter of this important message.
24. Mini Backpack
Purses are great for carrying all the items you need when you leave the house. However, purses aren’t for everyone, which is why getting your best friend a mini backpack would be a great gift.
It is big enough to fit everything you need, but also not as bulky as a regular backpack. If purses are not your best friend’s thing, then this is a great gift idea for them.
I don’t know about you, but I hate taking off my make-up at the end of the day. It can be a whole process of wipes and water and sponges and who knows what else.
You can help make your best friend’s make-up removal process easier with the Original MakeUp Eraser. All they need is the cloth and some water and they can take off all of their make-up.
It has two sides, one for erasing the make-up and one for exfoliating your face. This gift is perfect for anyone who wears make-up and absolutely hates the process of taking it off at the end of the day.
I have EcoTools eyeshadow brushes and I love them. I don’t wear make-up that often, but when I do, I tend to focus on my eyeshadow, and the brushes help a lot.
Trust me, these brushes will be a great gift for your best friend. If they wear make-up often and are looking for new brushes, these will be perfect.
It has a variety of shapes and sizes for all the different steps of applying a full face of make-up. The brushes are cruelty-free and made of recycled aluminum and plastic and renewable bamboo.
27. Face Wash Set
Who doesn’t love a good manicure? I know lately I have been obsessed with making sure my nails look good at all times.
I am constantly buying new nail polish that I think will look good on me. If your best friend is the same way, then this set of gel nail polish is the perfect gift for them.
It has a wide range of colors, as well as top coats, providing everything they need for the perfect gel manicure. Gel polish also often lasts longer than normal nail polish.
Haircare is another important routine for many people, which is why another great gift for best friends is a shampoo and conditioner set.
You can get them their favorite shampoo and conditioner, or a set they have been wanting to try. Also, of course, if there is a set you think they need to try, you can get them that too.
It never hurts to influence your best friend and make them use your favorite products.
Popcorn is one of my favorite snacks, and movie night is a great best-friend-night-in activity. My best friends and I love spending a night watching movies and eating snacks until we are stuffed.
This gift for your best friend is not just a gift for them: it is also a gift for you. You two can use this set to have a night in watching your favorite movies.
All you need is the movies and some drinks and you are ready for a night of fun!
31. Coffee Gift Card
32. Snack Box
You could make a box yourself of their favorite snacks, or you could get them a premade one.
Whichever you choose, food is always a great gift. Everyone needs to feed themselves, so why not help your best friend out with this gift?
33. Tea Bag Sampler
I love tea. I don’t love it as much as coffee, but it is up there on my list of favorite beverages. So, if you have a friend who enjoys tea, this set of tea bag samples is the perfect gift for them.
It has sixteen different flavors for them to try, which will hopefully help them find their new favorite flavor. Plus, they will not have to buy tea for a while, which is another win.
This is also great for those who want to get into the world of tea. The wide variety of flavors will help them decide which type of tea they enjoy the best.
Who says you cannot make your favorite coffee shop drinks at home? This electric milk frother will bring your best friend one step closer to making their favorite coffee beverages at home.
They can make a wide variety of drinks with this tool. All they need is the milk of their choice and a bowl or cup, and the possibilities are endless.
You two can even look up recipes and make some drinks together. Of course, you can also just demand they make you some drinks with your amazing gift. Either option is acceptable.
35. Air Fryer
The popularity of air fryers is on the rise. It appears everyone either has an air fryer or wants an air fryer. I open up my social media feeds and I am constantly seeing people sharing their air fryer recipes.
If your best friend is experiencing the same thing, then an air fryer may be the perfect gift for them. They will be able to hop on the air fryer trend.
You two can even try some recipes together. Again, this is another gift that provides an activity for both of you.
Water itself is a pretty boring drink. It does not have much taste and that sometimes prevents people from drinking all the water they are supposed to.
However, this water bottle may solve the problem. Your best friend can fill the middle of the water bottle with fruit and let it flavor the water.
Now, your best friend has non-boring water, which will hopefully help them stay hydrated.
37. Moon Light
Lights are always useful to have. The moon is something pretty in the sky to look at, so why not combine the two together and get your best friend a moon lamp that can be various different colors?
Your best friend can set the lamp to their favorite color, or whatever color they are feeling at that moment in time. They can also change the brightness to whatever they are feeling at the moment.
Flowers are always a great gift. Everyone appreciates getting flowers, no matter what the occasion is.
However, depending on what kind of flowers they are and how well you take care of them, they can die quickly, which results in a pile of leaves and petals for you to clean up.
However, with this gift, that is not an issue: this flower will last forever. It has lights in it and is encased in a glass dome.
It is like giving your friend the real thing, but minus the time limit on enjoying the flowers. With this, you can give them something that will last a lifetime.
Sleep is crucial, and comfort is key to getting a good night’s sleep. So why not help your best friend out with this gift of silk pillowcases with a silk face mask?
Not only is the soft silk comfortable, it is also good for hair and skin. They can curl up in their bed, put on the face mask and lay their heads on their pillowcases and get the best sleep they’ve ever had.
I will admit, I would not be a good plant mom. I would be very forgetful at watering any plant I had. If your best friend also has a brown thumb, then these would be a great gift for them.
They make cute decorations for bedrooms or living rooms, and are also cute for photo backgrounds.
However, you could also get them real plants if they would be a great plant parent.
41. Bed Shelf
This gift is such a nifty idea. It is a shelf that you can attach to the side of the bed to place your phone, drinks, notebook, or whatever you need to.
This is a great gift if your best friend lives in a dorm or small apartment, or if they just do not have a night stand or something similar next to their bed. They can attach it with ease and use it for whatever they need.
42. Phone Stand
Finding a place to keep your phone while working can be difficult. Well, this phone stand is the perfect gift for your best friend to help keep her workspace organized.
This stand allows them to place their phone next to their laptop at eye level while they are working.
They can keep an eye out for important notifications, but do not have to keep moving it to make space.
It is above where any notebooks or paperwork would need to be. Plus, it makes checking their phone easier. They do not even have to look down from their laptop.
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.
This way, you are giving the gift of photos and memories, but in a technologically advanced way.
In the world of streaming, this is a fantastic gift idea. Many TVs nowadays come with some sort of smart TV element, with the streaming apps already pre-installed.
However, buying a new TV is expensive, so a Roku stick is a great solution. All you need to do is plug the device into your TV, connect it to wifi and download the app, and now, you can stream through your TV!
There’s no more plugging your laptop into the TV or only watching on a small laptop screen. If your best friend loves their streaming services, this is a great gift for them.
45. Ring Light
Is your best friend obsessed with taking selfies or making Tiktoks? If so, this is the perfect gift for them.
This ring light will give your friend the lighting they need to take the perfect selfies and film the perfect Tiktoks. They can set it up wherever they need it and set the perfect lighting.
So help your best friend become the next Tiktoker with this gift.
Personally, I think this is one of the better trends I have seen recently. You can connect a cable or through Bluetooth to your phone, open up the app, and sing away. You can have a karaoke party anywhere you go, at any time.
This is a wonderful gift for the best friend who loves to sing along to whatever they are listening to. Now they can sing whenever they want, and they have the ability to amplify their voice.
This gift is such a smart and meaningful idea. It is a jar of inspirational and positive quotes. Everyday, your best friend can pull out a quote and read it to give them a positivity boost.
When they are feeling down, they can pull a quote to try and turn their mood around. My best friends always try to lift my spirits when I am down.
This jar is a way for you to help lift your best friend’s spirit when you can’t be with them. Whenever they pull a quote out, they can think of you.
Plus, they can send you what the quote they got everyday said, and you can share in the experience.
Coloring in coloring books does not have to stop once you grow up. No, it can continue on into adulthood. That is why an adult coloring book and a set of colored pencils is a perfect gift for any best friend.
This will allow your best friend to express their creativity, and relax and relive some childhood memories. You could even get yourself a matching one and color them together.
This book has become popular over the last few years. It is a book that teaches you how to leave your doubts about who you are supposed to be behind, and become who you are meant to be.
You can’t go wrong giving your best friend a book that shows them how to be the best person they can be. Plus, you can get yourself a copy, and you can have a little book club.
50. Personal Alarm
It is important to always be alert and aware of your surroundings, especially when you are alone. If something were to happen, it is important to have a way to get people’s attention if you need help.
That makes these personal alarms the perfect gift, not only for your best friend but also for you.
This can easily clip onto any key chain, maybe the key chain you get your best friend as well, and at the first sign of trouble, you can press the button to get someone’s attention.
This gift will help put your mind at ease, as you will know your friend has a way to protect themselves. Make sure to get one for yourself as well.
You and your best friend have a special relationship. No matter what you decide to get them, they will love it because it came from you. They will appreciate that you were thinking of them. And of course, every best friend is different, so not all of these gifts will apply to them. But hopefully, at least one will help lead you in the direction of the perfect gift for your best friend.
That’s a wrap! This post was all about friendship gifts. If you any other gift ideas, let us know in the comments so we can add them to our list. Did you enjoy the article? Share it on social media.

24. Manga Box Set
Mangas are a great Japanese gift for anyone who loves the culture. In Japan, people of all ages read manga, making it a big part of Japanese culture. Japanese mangas were created either in the 12th or 13th century, but the more modern mangas we’re familiar with came about in the mid-20th century.
The Meiji period was a time in feudal Japan that lasted from the late 1800s to the early 1900s that was characterized as a period that led to the industrialization of modern Japan.
“In the world of Yokohama, each player is a merchant in the Meiji period, trying to gain fame from a successful business, and to do so they need to build a store, broaden their sales channels, learn a variety of techniques, and respond to trade orders from abroad,” as stated on TMG.com.

27. Noren Tapestry
Noren are traditional Japanese fabric dividers hung between rooms, on walls, in doorways or in windows. They were originally used to protect a house from wind, dust and rain, as well as to keep a house warm on cold days and to provide shade on hot summer days. They can also be used for decorative purposes or for dividing a room into two separate spaces.
Kit Kats are one of the best chocolates ever created, in my opinion. This variety pack features 16 different types of Japanese Kit Kat flavors, including green tea, wasabi, rum raisin, strawberry cheesecake and pancakes. This is a great Japanese gift idea for anyone who loves Kit Kats and who also loves the varied flavors only seen in Japan.
This set of four premium sushi and sashimi knives are a great Japanese gift for any sushi lover in your life who aspires to learn how to make their own.
These classic chef knives used to prepare sushi and sashimi slice through delicate fish with precision and ease. They can also be used as general kitchen knives. This set of four knives is relatively inexpensive, making it a great gift for any sushi novice.
The retelling of folktales and legends are a big part of any culture. This book, which encapsulates twelve of the best Japanese folktales, is a perfect way to become familiar with this country’s common history. The stories in this book have been shared with generations of Japanese children.
“These charming tales engage your imagination as you’re carried on turtleback rides, brought to the underwater palace of the dragon princess, and discover a temple with a “tea kettle” that is really a cunning badger in disguise,” as stated on Amazon.com.
This book is beautifully illustrated and presented in both English and Japanese.
Japan is a beautiful country with a fascinating culture and a staple of the entertainment and culinary world. These gifts demonstrate that! Of course, everyone is different, so not all gifts will work for everyone, but hopefully, you found one that will be great for a loved one or for a friend.
That’s a wrap. This post was all about Japanese gifts. Did you like it? Let us know in the comments and share the love on social media.

I would have loved to have this myself, it would have come in handy when all I had to eat was Ramen.
Students spend more time with their roommates than anyone else, so why not preemptively manifest a good relationship with a suitable picture frame? You could even make a small collage of your favorite moments and put that in the frame. Something to hold my favorite picture would have been nice to have in my dorm.
14. Collegiate Flag
This is a rather comic gift, but in addition to making your loved one smile, it will also remind them to keep in touch while away. Hopefully, it will get you a phone call from your student, at least once a week.

It’s important to make sure your student stays clean all semester. This towel will help them keep track of their own, ensuring it never gets lost. I know that keeping track of my towel in the communal bathrooms was hard, with this gift, that challenge disappears!

Chilling on campus has never been more fun, when you’re hanging out in this hammock— pun intended. Your student can bring their roommate, friends, or significant other and enjoy the view of the beautiful sky. I love hammocks any time anywhere, this gift would have me using it every single day.
Get your student energized and pumped up for sporting events with a bracelet in their university's colors. These will be the colors they bleed for the next four years, so start them off early with this gift. You would never catch me without this bracelet on my wrist on gameday repping my school.
Daily affirmations are vital for any point in school. This mug will give your student the daily confidence that she needs to get herself through the day. I wish I had this mug to help me compose myself in times when I lacked confidence.
This makeup bag stands out as a great gift to let your student know how much they mean to you. You can even personalize it with your graduate's name so everyone knows who it belongs to. Anyone would be lucky to have such an amazing gift, and the customization aspect just adds to that awesomeness.
Gifts for College Graduates
This luggage bag is the absolute perfect gift for anyone who will be traveling in the future. Your brand new adult will find this gift to be incredibly useful when the time comes to travel. I personally felt that this brand of luggage was the best suitable for my needs.
This bag is perfect for those who find themselves shaving very often. The customization aspect of the gift is just a bonus! I would be grateful to be gifted this incredibly priced travel bag that I’d use daily!
A wonderful reminder of your student’s time at home, this bracelet will bring back memories of the past whenever your student wears it. Customize it with a lovely message to put a smile on your grad’s face. The thing that stood out the most to me was the amazing deal that you can get it for!
If you do not trust your grad to feed themselves, this snack box makes it much easier for them to do so. The gift includes dozens of various snacks, which means they will never get old to your student. This is the ideal gift for me, I love snacks but hate having to leave my room to get some, this stockpile would surely come in handy.
This bicycle repair kit is perfect for a student who is likely to bike a lot once they graduate. This gift gives them one last helping hand from you, before they finally leave you for good. I ride my bike all the time, this gift could have helped me out on multiple occasions.
Another gag gift, this frame will give your student a laugh when they see it sitting on the wall. Who knows? Maybe the rainy day money will come in handy. I always find myself in need of a spare dollar, so I find this gift beneficial for sure.
This is a small portable printer that connects to your grad’s phone, making it a very convenient gift. It’s perfect for your grad who takes lots of photos and needs them printed often. I think anyone would be happy to receive such a high tech futuristic gift from anyone.
Give your grad a simple, yet thoughtful gift of a customized graduation frame. Engrave their graduation year in the frame so it stands out once their senior portraits finally come out. I still have my senior portrait standing in my room, all it's missing is a customized frame.
This notebook is special in the fact that once used completely, pages can be erased easily so that the notebook can be reused again. This notebook is potentially an endless journal for people who enjoy writing. If I had this book when I was in school I would have been able save countless pages wasted by doodles.
This foldable keyboard is a wonderful gift for those who travel with their tablets. It is compatible with every computer system, making it a valuable asset in any graduate’s life. If I had one of these, I would have done my work laying back in my bed every day.
This passport holder allows customization, so that your student knows exactly what their passport looks like. This is another wonderful gift for those graduates who cannot seem to stop traveling. If I was going on a trip somewhere, I’d want to travel in style with this wonderous passport holder.
This mouse pad is great for any graduate who is planning to spend a lot of time on their computers. The smooth leather makes a great track for any mouse and is guaranteed to last for a long time. I usually don’t use a mouse, but if I was gifted this pad, I would go out and buy one immediately.
This 21 piece set of kitchen cutlery is great for your graduate who is moving into their own place. This set includes anything that your student could possibly need in their kitchen. Moving out would be one step easier if I were to have this set of cutlery.
Another great one for those grads living on their own, this sheet set will help your student start off with clean sheets for their new life. These sheets stand out as some of the softest and most comfortable on the market. Maybe if I had these when I was living in my dorm I would have actually changed my sheets once in a while.
Going off into the real world requires a professional look, so your grad’s beat up college wallet just will not do anymore. Customize this leather wallet for them to keep them looking as proper as they can be. I’ve been needing a new wallet for a while now, a personalized one doesn’t seem too bad.
This bag is great for any grad who carries a good amount of stuff with them at any given time. This gift has a comfortable fit and a fashionable style, making it perfect for navigating a post-college life. If I had this bag, I would feel confident and comfortable to go anywhere in the world.
There is an indescribable pride in watching your loved one graduate. It’s a momentous occasion, and deserves to be celebrated as such! While a gift cannot stand alone as a measure of pride, it will give your graduate a perfect memento of their achievement.
Overall, the best item on this list would have to be one of the more technologically advanced gifts such as the pocket printer or the portable keyboard. It is also definitely ok to give money as a gift. The amount really depends on how well you know the graduate, but 20$ is probably a good start at least.
Cash Vs. Gift Cards
Sometimes, the best gift that you can offer to your graduate is cash, it always comes in handy you know. If you are low on bills or do not feel particularly comfortable with handing away money, gift cards work just as well. Here are 5 great gift cards that anyone would love.
The biggest name in coffee, even if you don’t like caffeinated beverages, there’s always something everyone does love at Starbucks.
Chick Fil Astands out as the company that has taken over the fast food game. Though the line for food may be long, it is totally worth it for their chicken sandwich.
Target is the department store where you can find almost anything you can think of. Everyone loves a trip to target, though it’s hard to leave empty handed.
The most popular streaming service out there, if you want to keep up with the newest shows, as subscription would be helpful
Visa gift cards are by far the best gift card anyone can receive. They work somewhat like a debit card, giving you the ability to spend it wherever your heart desires.
Best Time to Buy and Send Your Gift
To ensure that you get the best gift possible, it is best to start searching for what you think your graduate would like rather early. A great time to give your gift is at a graduation party if there is one, and if not or you do not attend, feel free to send it around the time of graduation in general. Make sure you send it early so that it does not arrive too late, as they may have plans to move soon after graduation.

40 Adorable Penguin Gifts for the Penguin Lovers of Your Life
What do you call a happy penguin? A pen-grin! I just could not resist making that cheesy joke, especially since many people love penguins. Do you have a friend who is obsessed with penguins? Do you want to make them pen-grin with penguin gifts? Then you have come to the right place.
In this gift guide, you will find forty adorable penguin-themed gift ideas that your friend is sure to love. Maybe they will even have happy feet!
I know I love the idea of having some cute string lights in a bedroom as a form of decoration. So, if your friend also loves string lights and is obsessed with penguins, then this is perfect.
These penguin-themed lights will add some warmth and decoration to any bedroom. These will also show off your friend’s favorite animal.
These cute penguin lights are a nice twist on basic string lights.
I personally think a thermos is an essential item. I am a coffee addict, so something like a thermos comes in handy when I need to take my coffee on the go.
Thermos come in various shapes and sizes, so get your friend this penguin-shaped one. They can use it for hot or cold items, which will stay at the perfect temperature.
It’s a funny contradiction that an animal that loves the cold can keep a beverage warm. Your friend can also bring their favorite animal wherever they go.
This shirt is perfect for your friend who is absolutely obsessed with penguins, specifically if their love of the animal is frequently being questioned. Wearing this T-shirt can stop all the questions thrown their way.
Plus, it’s just a cute penguin shirt they can add to their collection. If I were to need a shirt like this, I would need one that says “I just really like cats, OK,” because I always talk about how much I love cats and how cute they are.
First off, wine glasses are always a great gift, especially if someone is just starting off building their glass collection.
I have gifted several glasses in the last year as several of my friends turned twenty-one. I also received my fair share of glasses.
A glass that represents your friend’s favorite animal is the perfect gift. It is something that is practical because they will use it often.
So, everytime they drink from this cute glass, they will be reminded of you and their favorite cold-weather critter.
This goes along with the wine glass idea above. Everyone needs some sort of wine opener.
How else are you going to open your wine? (My roommates open our wine, but that is beside the point.)
If your friend needs a wine opener, why not make it one that has her favorite animal? It is adorable, and most likely no one else you know will have this specific one.
It is the perfect penguin gift for your penguin- and wine-loving friend.
I don’t know about everyone else, but I loved my Pillow Pet when I was a child. I had a purple unicorn one, and I loved it and had it for years. So, this next penguin gift is one your friend will love.
This present will allow your friend to relive their childhood while also having a new comfy pillow.
They can cuddle with their stuffed penguin or unfold it and snuggle with it as a pillow.
It serves several purposes, making this adorable gift perfect for your penguin-obsessed friend.
Everyone absolutely needs a comfy blanket to snuggle up with at night. I love having at least one blanket that I can curl up under and relax with.
Of course, your penguin-loving friend needs one with penguins on it. At night, they can snuggle under their blanket of their favorite animals, with their penguin pillow pet and relax. In my opinion, that sounds pretty relaxing.
I am known for looking for any excuse to buy a mug. I have way too many mugs but am always looking for ways to add to my collection.
I suggest getting your friend a penguin-themed mug as a gift. One with a fun saying like this one is even better than a simple one.
This mug is perfect for people who love penguins. They may have even said this phrase before. I love giving and receiving mugs as gifts, so I think this penguin gift idea is a winner.
Snow globes are a classic gift for any occasion. There are snow globes that fit any event, place or season.
I have gotten a few snow globes over the years, and I think they are super cute. Your best friend needs a snow globe of their favorite animal.
They can have it on display, letting anyone who visits them know what their favorite animal is. Also, they can shake it and watch the snowflakes dance around the cute penguins. It is a cute decoration as well.
10. Penguin Necklace
A penguin necklace is the perfect present allowing your friend to add some accessory to her outfits.
I love adding a small, simple necklace to an outfit. Your friend can do just that with this penguin one. It is a simple way for her to express her love of penguins without talking about them.
She can wear it whenever she wants to have her favorite animal close to her.
11. Penguin Socks
Socks with a fun pattern are always a win. I do not have that many fun socks, but I do have some with cats on them, which are my favorite animal.
You need to get your penguin-loving friend some penguin socks so they can share in the sock fun!
These are perfect for lounging around the house, going out with friends or just running errands. Any time is the perfect time for some fun penguin socks.
12. Penguin Planner
Staying organized is important for keeping yourself motivated. I am the first to admit that I am not the best at using my planner, but when I do, I definitely get more done.
What better way to help your friend stay motivated than to get her a planner with a penguin on it. She will be drawn to use it because of the penguins, and it will hopefully help her stay organized.
Plus, if your friend is stressed, the penguins may cheer her up.
13. Penguin Gummies
I know at first, two pounds of gummies seems a bit excessive. However, your friend will be set for a long time if you get them these gummies.
They will have candy to soothe any craving they may have. They may even share some of the gummies with others, meaning you may even get something out of the deal.
You can even work together to come up with some snacks you can work the gummies into.
14. Penguin Robe
I never used to be that big of a robe person, but that has changed. I find myself putting on my robe after my shower and not wanting to take it off.
A comfy robe is the perfect relaxation item. That makes a penguin robe a great gift for you friend. At the end of the day, they can just throw on the robe and relax.
While wearing the robe, they can put a warm drink in their penguin mug, wear their penguin socks and chill out.
15. 3D Penguin Light
This item really caught my eye. It is not a typical gift someone would think of getting for someone, so this would be an awesome gift to get your penguin-loving friend. They definitely do not have this already. Plus, it is not super expensive, making it that much better.
This is another gift that serves a practical purpose but is made better by the fact that it has penguins on it.
As someone who struggles to find bags to take their makeup in when traveling, I would find this bag useful.
This item is great for showing off your friend’s love for penguins while traveling. It can serve many purposes and can carry whatever more than just makeup.
The penguins are wearing hats and scarves, which makes them even cuter.
A sweatshirt with a sassy quote on it is always a great gift in my book. I do not have many of these in my wardrobe, but I want to add more.
This one is a strong contender to be added to my collection. I think it would be a great addition to your friend’s collection.
The statement has some great logic that they will appreciate. Plus, it is a great sweatshirt they can just throw on whenever they want. It is something casual, cute and funny.
18. Penguin Earrings
I personally do not wear earrings often. However, if I did, I would want these in my collection, especially if I loved penguins.
The outline of the penguin is simple and not too crazy. Also, they are not too long, so they won’t be heavy on your ear.
If your friend loves jewelry, especially earrings, then this will be a great penguin gift for them. Plus, they are silver, so they can go with many outfit options.
They can be dressed up and down. Overall, these earrings will make a great gift.
19. Penguin Wallet
Finding a wallet that works for everything I keep in it can be a struggle. At times, I may have two wallets going, or I constantly shift from one wallet to another.
But, I think this penguin wallet will work well for your friend. It has multiple slots for cards like your ID.
It has a pocket for cash and change as well. It is also a fun blue color, which goes great with the penguin pattern. This adorable wallet has everything your friend could possibly need.
Just like the wine glass and wine opener, you need a shot glass collection. (At least in my opinion you do.)
Everyone needs at least a few fun-themed shot glasses, so why not gift penguin ones? They are not expensive and could be cutely displayed on a shelf with your penguin wine glass.
What would make it even better, is if you found a penguin shot recipe and tried it from the shot glass.
I have no idea if that exists or what would be in it, but maybe you and your friend could create something.
When your friend opens their wine with their penguin wine opener and pours some into their penguin wine glass, they are going to need something to make sure the wine doesn’t go bad.
Why not buy them a penguin wine stopper? It is the obvious choice to complete the penguin experience of drinking wine.
Plus, this wine stopper has multicolor LED lights. What could possibly be better? In my opinion, this is a must-get for your friend.
22. Penguin Keychain
Keychains are a simple gift that have a wide range of possibilities. They can be a basic charm, have a simple shape, contain a funny quote...
My favorites are the ones that have sweet, uplifting messages on them. It is not often that someone just comes up and starts reading your keychains, so it is like a sweet little message you just have for yourself.
This one would be such a meaningful gift for your friend. It has a message that reminds them how strong and amazing they are.
It would mean the world because you would be giving them the gift. It shows that you feel that way about them.
Plus, the penguin on it is a nice touch and is something they could smile about when they look at the keychain. Keys go everywhere with you, so they will always have the gift with them.
When I am stressed, I want something to get out all my anger and frustration. Sometimes when I squeeze something, it helps relieve some of the tension.
These penguin stress relief balls are a great penguin-themed gift for your friend. They are especially useful if your friend has some stressful times coming up or if they are often anxious.
They may be hesitant to squeeze the penguins at first because they love them, but once they realize how much it helps with stress, they will love this gift.
24. Penguin Slippers
The ultimate relaxation outfit is not complete without slippers. Your friend may have the penguin robe, socks, a mug full of a relaxing beverage, blanket and maybe some stress relief balls, but they need the slippers, too!
The soles of these slippers have memory foam, which ups the comfort level. Plus, with their arms wide open and ready for a hug, the penguins are so cute.
This is a must for the penguin gift list. They are perfect for lounging around the house on the weekend.
Now, my roommate makes most of our cocktails in her cocktail shaker. She loves making them, so if she loved penguins, I absolutely would get this shake for her.
It has a sleek silver design that will look gorgeous up on a shelf. A regular cocktail shaker is boring; this one spices it up.
This will make learning how to make drinks fun and will definitely help make your friend stand out whenever they are making drinks.
Okay, this one may need some explaining. I mainly put them on this list because I thought they were cute.
These are just balls you put into the dryer to help make your clothes soft and wrinkle- and static-free.
My roommate uses simple dryer balls, but when I saw these penguin ones, I thought they were a perfect cute yet practical gift for this list.
By getting this penguin-themed gift for your friend, you are not only giving them a cute present but a useful gift to help with their laundry.
Just like with wallets, finding a purse that works perfectly can be challenging. They are either too small or too big or do not have enough pockets.
I am constantly changing what purse I am using, hoping the next one will work better than the last.
Just by looking at the cute design, I think this purse is perfect, The mom and baby penguin are adorable.
Plus, the bag itself is not too large, but it’s big enough for your wallet, phone and maybe some small items.
It will be perfect for when you go out but only need a few things. This a purse your friend will absolutely adore and use for many occasions.
28. Penguin Wall Art
The two penguins on this piece of wall art are so adorable that even I want to hang this on my wall.
I have a feeling your friend will have the same reaction when they see this as well. The two penguins are simple, but they will stand out in any space.
This painting will make the perfect wall decoration for any room. Get them a cute frame to pair with the picture, and you have the perfect penguin-themed gift.
This was an obvious choice for this list. Anyone who loves penguins needs a penguin stuffed animal.
If they do not have one already, get them one ASAP. If they already have one or more, why not add another to the collection?
There are so many out there; I am sure you can find one they don’t already have. Stuffed animals vary in size, shape and style, so you have many options.
Staying hydrated is such an important task that everyone needs to remember. I have my favorite water bottle that I like to use.
I fill it up every morning, and I take it everywhere. Just like how I have my favorite bottle, this penguin one will become your friend’s favorite.
It has a sleek silver design with a penguin. It can even be personalized, which means you can specifically tailor it to your friend.
You can put their name, nickname or favorite phrase. This bottle is the perfect combination to promote hydration and showcase the loveliness of penguins.
31. Penguin Apron
You may be thinking, who gets their friend an apron as a gift? Well, my best friend got me a set of aprons for my birthday this year.
Why? I baked cupcakes once, so now apparently I am a baker! If your friend happens to love baking or cooking and needs an apron, this gift is a great gift option.
It is not expensive, and it is something that will be useful. They can proudly hang this up in their kitchen, adding a bit of penguin decor.
I thought that this gift was absolutely adorable. The penguin with the crown is so cute. The colors are gorgeous, and it is overall just a clever gift.
If your friend loves essential oils, then this gift combines that love with their love of penguins. They can take this diffuser with them when they travel or they can keep it in their room at home.
This diffuser is not super expensive, especially considering it will get many uses.
Nostalgia is all over this book. When you grow up, you do not have to stop coloring. I own a few coloring books, and I think they are pretty cool.
So, why not get your friend a penguin coloring book. They can color the penguins however they want, giving them the chance to design their own penguin.
This activity may help them relax after a long day or express their creativity. Also, after one is finished, they can put it on display on the fridge or wall.
34. Penguin Pasta
When I saw this pasta, I was overwhelmed with how lovable this was. The little penguin pasta would put a pen-grin on my face if this pasta was cooked for me.
You could give your friend a bag of this pasta as a gift, or you could make your friend a meal with it. Either option would be a great present for your friend.
35. Penguin Hat
When the weather gets colder, a hat is an essential part of your outfit. Everyone should have that go-to winter hat. (I know I have at least one or two that are my favorites.)
Gift this penguin hat, and it will become a staple for your friend’s winter outfit. The cute penguin face plus the puff balls on the end make the perfect beanie.
Cold weather is not the most pleasant, but the hat may make the weather a bit more endurable.
36. Penguin Leggings
Leggings are one of the most comfortable articles of clothing. I live in leggings. I have way too many pairs but am always getting more.
However, I do not have many that have patterns. But I would love to have a pair of these penguin leggings, which is why you need to get these for your friend.
They will add a bit of pattern and fun to any outfit. Whether they wear them to lounge or wear them out on the town, they are perfect. Every penguin lover needs a pair of these leggings.
Throw pillows are a common item found in almost any house or apartment. I have some throw pillows,so your friend probably has some, too.
If they do not have some already, start their collection with a penguin pillow cover. This pillow cover’s design will fit perfectly on their bed, couch or chair.
Pair this with a blanket to give your friend the perfect warm, relaxing snuggle setup.
Even though you will not catch a penguin at the beach, this beach towel makes the perfect gift for your penguin-loving best friend.
My favorite beach towel has a character that relates to one of my favorite bands on it. Your friend will love a beach towel with their favorite animal on it.
Also, they do not have to only use it at the beach. They can use it at home as well. It serves many purposes, making this another perfect penguin gift.
Boring, plain seat belts are out; seat belts with fun animal accessories are in. A penguin seat belt cushion is the perfect gift for your friend.
All they have to do is attach it, and they will have a penguin with them whenever they drive their car. I would love to have one of these in my car.
This will surely make your friend pen-grin when they open up their gift.
40. Penguin Bath Mat
You need a mat for your bathroom so that you have something to step onto when you get out of the shower.
So why not have it have a penguin on it? This is a simple mat that will fit with almost any bathroom.
It is black and white and has a simple outline of a penguin and a showerhead. It is not in your face with a crazy pattern. This will make a perfect, simple penguin gift for your friend.
If you get your best friend everything on this list, their entire house will be filled with penguin-related items. While that might be a bit excessive, getting them a few items on the list is a great idea.
Of course, not everything on this list would be something your friend may want, and there are probably some items missing on this list that they would enjoy.
At least you can find other penguin-themed items for almost any situation. But I am sure whatever you choose to get your best friend, it will make them pen-grin!
That’s a wrap. This post was all about penguin gifts. Do you have any other recommendations? Let us know in the comments and share the love on social media.
