The bond between two best friends is among the closest in many individuals' lives, and as such, comes with an added bit of pressure on gift-giving occasions to select a gift that is just right. Whether going for a personal gift or a most-wanted item, with some careful thought, you can find the perfect birthday gift to give your best friend.

Photo Presents

Throughout the course of your friendship, you have no doubt shared many fun experiences together. Getting your best friend a photo-based gift allows you to give them something to ensure they never forget the fun you have had. A simpl picture in a frame or photo album are easy gifts, while experienced crafters can work on a scrap book for their best friend.

BFF Gifts

The Best Friend Forever genre of gifts features pairs of items, with one of the items given to your friend and the other kept by you. Commonly the items are capable of combining together to form a single item, however other BFF gifts are simply matching items, such as an identical pair of friendship bracelets.

Homemade Gifts

Creating your own gift to give to your best friend allows you to custom make the exact item you make for them, and adds the extra perk of the recipient knowing that you worked hard to personalise their gift. Homemade crafts can be simple items like a braided bracelet or a more advanced gift if you have experience in a specific medium, such as a personal portrait.


You don't become best friends without enjoying spending time together. By purchasing or planning an activity together, you provide your best friend with another fun experience that you share, adding to your friendship. Whether it is a relaxing day out at a spa, or more intensive activity such as a camping retreat, the real gift is time together with your best friend.

Personal Gifts

While giving a gift related to your friendship is an excellent option when buying for a best friend, you are not obligated to pick something that will remind them of you when they see it. As a best friend, you know a great deal about them and as such can simply elect to buy a non-personal item that you know they have had their heart set on.
