Our best friends are there for us when we need them the most. They’re there for the good times and the bad times. Even if they’re not with you all the time, you know you can always rely on them. Whether you want to say thank you for some help they’ve given you or just to show that you care – a special gift and unexpected gift makes a lovely surprise. Here are some great picks for thoughtful gifts to give to your best friend.

A spa day

Between busy work and family lives, it can be difficult for you to spend quality time with your best friend. Buying you both a gift certificate to a spa offers an excellent opportunity for you to relax and take some time to get away from it all. A friend who’s been going through a tough time can benefit from a de-stress and a spa day is a gift that will always be appreciated. If the spa isn’t her thing, do some research on best friend dates to find an activity you’ll both enjoy. You might even find a new hobby you can take up together!

Personalized Name Jewelry

A name necklace

Personalized jewelry is a thoughtful gift that shows that you really care for the recipient. If your friend is a fashionista, she’ll appreciate a Sex and the City-style ‘Carrie’ necklace – a simple but stylish piece that goes with everything. For beautiful and chic personalized name necklaces – Soufeel is a great retailer that offers them in different styles and colors. Get one for yourself too for a cute reminder of the special friendship you both share.

Anti-Ageing Facial Serum

Some luxury skincare

It’s important that we look after our skin, and if you’ve been raving about a new skincare product recently – why not give one as a gift to a friend? Being able to say, ‘I thought you might like this,” shows that you think about your friend and that you know about her likes and dislikes. There are some amazing skincare products available at the moment, including skincare made from natural ingredients that make an excellent gift that she’ll love to keep on her dresser.

Blonde Brunette Frame

A framed photograph

This might be considered a bit of a retro gift, but how many of us take the time to print photographs anymore? With phones and Facebook to share photos on there’s a very real possibility that you don’t have any photos up in your home of the two of you together. Pick a stylish frame or fill an album with some of your favorite memories for a gesture she’ll really appreciate.

Treating your best friend is a wonderful way to lift her spirits or show her how much she means to you. If you struggle to think of ideas, look back at some of your favorite memories and let the inspiration hit you – an inside joke might be all that’s needed to spark an idea. Sometimes it’s the smaller gifts that we appreciate the most, and in the end – it’s always the thought that counts.

Not everyone is easy to buy gifts for. This time of year is particularly difficult if your friends have a birthday sometime around Christmas – chances are, your gift-buying muscles will still be sore from December, and your mental reservoir of gift ideas will be completely drained. Luckily, there are absolutely still some gifts you can buy – check out these ideas below.

Think About Their Interests

More importantly than anything else, when you’re buying birthday gifts, you have to think about your recipient’s interests rather than your own. This might sound obvious but the truth is that a lot of people find it hard to see past themselves when they’re trying to choose things for other people. Even if you love reading, you need to accept that not everyone will love a beautiful copy of Anna Karenina, no matter how highly you recommend it. Instead, focus on what your friend really loves. If they love their car, get them an accessory for that like new floor mats or a Bluetooth music player. If they love music, get them a gift card to a ticket website. Think about what they really love to inspire your purchase.

Buy Them Jewelry

There’s very little that’s more personal and beautiful than jewelry as a birthday gift, particularly if it’s a special birthday like a fortieth. Make sure that you take your friend’s personal style into account when you’re selecting a piece – if they love delicate jewelry, go for something with a slim golden or silver chain and a small sparkly pendant, but if they like chunkier jewelry, why not go for something colorful and African inspired? For a really personal piece, go for a bracelet with charms on it. That means you’ll always know what you get them for future birthdays!

Personalize A Gift

Personalized gifts always feel like such a treat. Leather wallets and purses engraved with people’s initials are always loved and appreciated – as are leather cell phone cases, which can turn an often ugly piece of technology into something that looks a lot more classic and elegant. You could get your friend a newspaper from the day they were born – just make sure that nothing too terrible happened on that day first – or maybe even a personalized horoscope for the next year if they’re into astrology.

Take Them On An Experience

One of the most important things you can do to maintain a good, healthy friendship is to spend time together, but in this busy modern world, time is often what we have least of – and what we value the most. In that case, take your friend on an experience together so you can catch up and really enjoy being together. Go for afternoon tea at the nicest hotel near where you live, and indulge yourself on champagne, tiny sandwiches and strawberry tarts all afternoon. If your friend loves the theater, take them to see a play. If you’re not completely sure what to get them, then why not try out the local spa?
