Are you wondering what to gift your best friend?
Even though you have a close relationship, gifts for best friends can be difficult to shop for.
So, I usually go through a brainstorming exercise that ends in me choosing the perfect gift for my best friend – or at least I think so.
Well, maybe not always the perfect gift. More like sometimes the perfect gift and sometimes an acceptable gift. But, always a gift that she loves and/or appreciates.
You can get the brainstorming exercise I use to choose gifts here.
Before we dive into our gift ideas for best friends, let’s get into the gift selection mindset.
The Gift Selection Mindset
Getting into the gift selection mindset will help you focus on and be in tune with the gift recipient (in this case your best friend), and in doing so, facilitate knowing the right gift when you see it.
Do the following.
Imagine all of the wonderful times you’ve shared together. The secrets you’ve kept. The times your best friend has been there for you through thick and thin. The highs and the lows and the ebbs and flows of life you’ve shared.
Now really think about your best friend – their personality, their likes and dislikes, their wants, needs and desires, their hobbies and interests, their love language, etc.
Because, it’s your best friend, and you know them as well or better than anyone else – sometimes it seems as if you know them better than they know themselves – you certainly know what gift will perfectly suit them.
We’ve compiled a gift guide for best friends that’s sure to have a gift your best friend will love and appreciate.
Now that your best friend is at the forefront of your mind, and you have officially switched into the gift selection mindset, you should have no problem choosing the perfect gift or at least recognizing it when you see it.
So without further ado – the gift guide.
