47 Gifts For Your Best Friends That Say 'You’re The Ann to My Leslie'
When it comes to best friend gift ideas, it can be tricky. You may know your BFF like the back of your hand, but that still doesn’t mean that buying the perfect present isn’t stressful. You want something that’s quintessentially “them,” but is also an ode to your friendship without being cheesy. You finally find THE perfect gift and then you realize…”wait, I already bought that for them two years ago!” Then it’s back to the drawing board.
Luckily, we’ve pulled together the ultimate list—from holiday Christmas gifts to sentimental gifts to kitschy, cute best friend gifts. We have something for every taste (and budget) out there. Whether your bestie is a beauty-lover, a foodie, a fitness buff, a mixologist or anything in between, you’ll find the perfect present from our list. Because what’s better than getting a package in the mail from your closest girlfriend?
Below: See our picks for the very best, best friend gifts.
For the friend who appreciates a cold glass of wine (or two) on a hot summer day, this gift set is pretty much the perfect choice. It comes with a “Winesulator” that can hold a full bottle and keep their drink cool for over 24 hours, as well as two 14 oz (yep, 14! That’s big, Mama) triple-insulated tumblers with a very obvious wine glass shape. The tumblers have a drink-through, flip-top lid, and Brümate’s patented BevGuard technology that’ll keep your bestie’s favorite beverages nice and cold for hours without going flat. To top it off — look at that gorgeous rose gold color? We’re obsessed.
Finally: A lip gloss that provides the perfect amount of shine, pigment, and hydration — without the sticky sweetness of our ’90s glosses. This clean beauty alternative comes in various shades (all pretty subtle), so pick one you think your best friend will like. It’s the gift she would have loved in 7th grade, and the gift she’ll also love now.
This is perfect for the health nut who still loves (and needs) her coffee fix. Chagaccino is a coffee supplement that comes in powder form, and it transforms your blah cup of coffee into a mocha with benefits. Made with chaga, Peruvian cacao, cinnamon, and monk fruit, this powder not only adds delicious flavor to your coffee (no creamer needed!), but it helps support your immune system and has anti-aging properties as well.
If you know your bestie loves a good face mask, we highly recommend Freck’s Foreclay Cactus Clay Mask. It makes skin feel cleaner, smoother, and brighter — without side effects like dry, aggravated skin. This is officially our new go-to mask for gals’ night in.
If your BFF loves luxury oil but hates how it makes her break out, we have the perfect solution, and it’s gonna give her skin the luxe treatment: TAHNYC’s oil-free oil alternative, which is primarily made from jojoba seeds, hydrates, silkens, and smooths (and leaves you nice and dewy) without the heaviness of standard body oils. Best of all? It’s cruelty free and doesn’t contain any gross ingredients, like parabens, sulfates, phthalates, colorants. It’s also fragrance-free, which is ideal for sensitive skin (and doesn’t overshadow perfumes you may be wearing).
