Picking a thoughtful gift for anyone can be hard, especially if it’s your best friend, whom you’ve known for years. Not because you don’t know them as a person, but because you want to give them the best gift possible to show them your gratitude and love and get them a gift that resonates with their personality. So, sometimes the process of finding the perfect gift can become overwhelming. But, fear not. Here are some ideas for you to get the present your bestie deserves.
Personalised gifts are the best. They are unique, tailored for that specific person and their liking. These types of gifts show that you’ve put thought and effort into the gift, your appreciation and love for them, and that it’s a gift that they will cherish for a long time. Thankfully, it isn’t too hard nowadays to get personalised gifts, from customised mugs to t-shirts. But here are some more interesting ideas for you to get your bestie.
Star Sign Necklace
For your astrology-obsessed friend, there’s nothing better than to gift them star sign necklaces. Zodiac necklaces are trendy, and they combine the symbolism of astrology with the beauty of jewellery design to create unique and meaningful pieces that resonate with individuals who are into astrology based on their zodiac sign.
Many people find that their star sign aligns with certain aspects of their personality and helps them accept those qualities. So, having a constant reminder of their sign and their values is something that they will greatly appreciate.
If your friend identifies with their zodiac sign and strongly believes in astrology, giving them a necklace with their star sign can show the love you have for them, as well as the thought you’ve put into the gift. If you’re not that into astrology, it will also show them that you listen to them and don’t dismiss their interests, even though you aren’t that invested in that. It means that you care greatly about them.
Gifting anything related to the zodiac to a person who truly believes in it, means that they will love and be grateful for that gift. Most people who care for astrology are proud of their signs, which means your friend will for sure showcase the necklace, be proud of it, and wear it on any occasion they get because it serves as a tangible reminder of their astrological identity. They can also serve as a reminder of the person who gave the necklace to them and the connection, love, and affection you two share.
Aside from the star sign necklaces, you can gift them customised jewellery. It’s always a thoughtful gift and it’s something that your friend can wear every day and it will always remind them of your friendship. Consider getting them a necklace or a bracelet with their initials or their birthstone. You can also choose a piece of jewellery with a meaningful message engraved on it.
Before you choose, though, consider your friend’s personal style. Do they prefer silver or gold jewellery? Do they like simple pieces or do they like to make a statement with bold jewellery? But, whatever you gift them, they will be thankful for it.
If your friend likes accessories, such as bags, wallers or even phone cases, here’s a great idea for you. Gifting them an ordinary accessory, everyone can do that, but a monogrammed piece is something that will stand out. It’s a great gift, because it’s very unique, a bag with their initials is practical, stylish and personalised. It also shows them that you’ve put thought into the gift and you care about them.
Create More Memories
Now, gifts don’t always have to be objects such as jewellery, clothes, accessories, etc. If you want to switch things up a little and you want your gift to stand out, instead of gifting them an item, gift them something more valuable, time and memories, something that they won’t be able to forget and will cherish forever.
Organise a Trip
Plan a surprise trip for your friend’s special day. It can be a day trip to any nearby town or a weekend getaway on the beach or the mountains. You can also plan fun activities during the trip, such as visiting a local museum, a surprise picnic on the beach or a hike. The options are limitless. Both you and your friend are going to enjoy the time spent together and will be able to catch up and relax.
Go to a Concert
What better way to spend your birthday than to go to a concert to see your favourite band? If your friend likes music and they would enjoy seeing their favourite artist consider getting tickets. You’ll have fun, dance, and create memories that will last you a lifetime as you sing along to the tunes that hold a special place in your friend’s heart.
Book a Spa Day
A spa day is always a good idea. You’ll be able to relax and rest while pampering yourselves. Schedule massages, facials and other treatments that will allow you to escape your everyday lives and indulge in some well-deserved self-care. Top of the day with some champagne or wine to properly celebrate your friend.
Host a Party in Their Honor
Plan a surprise birthday party, gathering all of your bestie’s closest friends and family to celebrate the day came into life. Pick a theme—something that your friend will enjoy—and decorate the place based on the theme. Play their favourite music and let them enjoy being celebrated on the one day of the year that is all about them.
Getting your best friend a gift isn’t an easy task, but the key to getting the perfect gift is the thought you’ve put into it. Personalised gifts are a great option as well as the option to spend time together. With the previous ideas, you will undoubtedly make their birthday gift an unforgettable one. It isn’t about the gift itself, it’s about the time you’ve invested.
