59 Unique Best Friend Gifts That Show How Much You Care +2023

We think the right jewelry is one of the sweetest gifts for a best friend. And this set comes with two bracelets set in amethyst, which are known to boost confidence and belief in yourself, according to the brand.

beauty sets

The skin routine queen in your life will love these kits! You can’t go wrong with a Sephora set, but if you’re looking to explore new brands, Topicals is a beauty-based brand that embraces skin tones and is revolutionizing skincare. A starter kit is also a great way to introduce yourself to a new skincare brand, which is why we’ve included Outset’s Daily Essentials in our list! Body care is important too, so we’ve included Glossier’s Body Hero Set. If you get your hands on Hailey Bieber’s Rhode skincare line, you’ll definitely win the Best Friend of the Year award!

Year-round school gifts

You can never be too prepared for school! So get your loved one some cute pastel highlighters that won’t bleed through the pages of their notebooks, or a minimalist laptop sleeve made from responsibly sourced leather. Whether they’re creating a vision board for the year or pasting together last summer’s trips, these stickers will make a positive addition to any page.

reading material

If their #BookTok list is pages long, show them how good a friend you are with a new book — or a gift card to help small independent bookstores shop online. Not the perfect gift yet? Enter with other friends on a Kindle Paperwhite as a group gift.

Sweet accessories

A fun accessory adds the right flair to any fit. Get inspired by some of our favorites including Girls Crew’s Float Like A Butterfly necklace, Brandon Blackwood’s beaded shoulder bag perfect for going out, an iridescent claw clip or Senia’s wavy ring.

tech gifts

If you are planning to split the cost of a gift among friends, opt for a tech product that could enhance your best friend’s entertainment experience. We’re feeling the new 3rd gen AirPods (which come with a Lightning charging case, unlike the first gen). The Anker Bluetootj speaker is also great for college students trying to adjust to their new routine – and way more unique than a coffee mug or yet another throw pillow.

Something for the memories

Cameras and film are always a good option for photography enthusiasts interested in vintage aesthetics and capturing fun moments. Besides, you can never have enough film. You will go through them quickly when you are so busy making memories with your dear friend.

Unique personalized jewelry

You can never have enough bling, especially when it’s personalized and unique to her. You’ll cherish these sparkling keepsakes from some of our favorite (and TikTok-beloved) jewelry brands for years to come.

friendship bracelets and necklaces

If they’re a fan of customizable gifts, DIY beaded bracelet kits will do just the trick! Featuring colorful beads with sturdy cords, these sets will remind your best friend of you every time they put it on!

Dormitory essentials

Whether they’re moving into their college dorm or just signed a lease with friends for an off-campus apartment, chances are they’re thinking about how to make their new space feel like their own. Skip the monogram coffee mug that your roommate will likely “borrow” and get him some dorm decor that he actually wants, like the Rossetta Star projector he’s seen all over his FYP, or a delicious-smelling one Candle that enhances him whole tiny Place. An equally great gift? The luxurious Aesop hand soap that really is as good as TikTok says (and for what not a real fool exists!).

Food gifts for best friends

We thought chocolate chip cookies couldn’t get any better, but we were wrong! Maman’s Nutty Chocolatey Chip Cookies, packed by the dozen, are a great pick-me-up for your best friend. Want other options that are just as amazing? Levain Bakery’s Biscuit Assortment Gift Boxes and Milk Bar’s Truffle Box will satisfy any sweet tooth.

DIY kits

Need a unique gift for your cunning bestie? It’s worth spending some time on Etsy or Uncommon Goods — both platforms have tons of cute DIY kits to choose from, whether you’re into floral clay pressing, bringing back tie-dye, or trying to turn needlepoint into a side hustle.

Sentimental Cards

Last but not least is the festive card. Don’t forget to send well wishes the traditional way, with a handwritten note reminding them that you care and will always be there.
