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?
