25 Gifts To Get Your Best Friend

25 Gifts To Get Your Best Friend For Her Birthday When You’ve Known Her Since Birth

You're a true friend, you're here till the end, you pull me aside when something ain't right, talk with me now and into the night,
till it's alright again, you're a true friend...who deserves a bomb birthday present.


Best friends are one-of-a-kind and always there for you. If you are lucky enough to have one since birth, then cherish them forever. They say blood is thicker than water but in my opinion, friends are the family we get to choose and love. When it comes to their birthdays, you don't get them the usual gift card or mug gifts. You have to go all out and have fun with it. Check out these 25 gifts that you should get your best friend if you've known her since birth.

1. Matching pajamas.


Literally, name one thing more fun than running around in matching pajamas? Nothing. So go to Target or Amazon and buy two cute sets for a slumber party for you and your bestie.

2. A massage.


It's one of those things that we will always think about and crave but never act on. Do your best friend a favor and book her a full-body with the hottest masseuse you can find.

3. One-month personal trainer.


Personal trainers are nice because they show us how to safely workout, use equipment, and build muscle. It's a luxury few of us can afford on a regular basis, but even a class or two can work wonders for your gym life. Book your best friend (and yourself) a month of personal training (preferably with an attractive trainer) and get fit together.

4. Way more stickers than they actually need.


All your inside jokes, favorite TV shows, sayings, and witty remarks are most likely in sticker-form. Get them all for your best friend to plaster on her Hydroflask, laptop, etc. It's bound to put a smile on her face.

5. Custom coordinate necklace.


This is great for long-distance bff's. Put the coordinates of your location on a cute and trendy necklace to remind her that no matter how far away you two may be, you'll always be there for her.

6. Homesick Candle.


Another goodie for long-distance best friends, a homesick candle will remind your best friend of you every time she lights it. Get a state candle or a memory and have your friendship light up the room.

7. Long-distance friendship lamp.


Who wouldn't want one of these? Especially to annoy your friend at night. Just touch the lamp, light it up, and the connecting lamp will light up too. It's a bit annoying, and creepy, but could be funny enough to get your best friend, then never use again.

8. Taco Bell and Red Bull delivered at 1 a.m.


The best midnight snack is Taco Bell and Red Bull. Why not surprise your best friend late at night with a box of tacos and a case of Red Bull.

10. A cardboard cutout of your face.


So you can always be there for her.

11. A workout class.


Book her a Zumba class, or yourself a cycling session. The options are unlimited and could be the stress-reducing fun that you two needed.

12. Friendship necklaces.


Another cute friendship necklace that is elegant and classy. Forget the "BFF Forever" stuff. This one can be worn any day without feeling like a middle schooler.

13. Personalized gift boxes.


You know you best friend better than anybody. Who else could make such a perfect box tailored for your best friend? Leave it on her door step or mail it to her. Choose a color or theme and pick out a few of her favorite things.

14. A chunky blanket.


Whether you make it yourself or buy it, your friend will be in love with this comfortable blanket.

15. Bedazzled wine.


Buy your friend's favorite type of alcohol, get some gems or glitter from a craft store, combine them, and boom. One beautiful, aesthetically-pleasing bottle for her to cherish forever.

16. Manicure or pedicure.


Everybody loves getting their nails done. Why not get mani-pedis for two and catch up about life.

18. Tickets to a show.


Get tickets to a fun musical or concert! You don't have to break the bank either. A lot of nosebleed sections are inexpensive and just as great!

19. Go on an adventure.

Lily Cooper

Get in the car, pack some sandwiches and water, and drive somewhere. Go to a national park, a nearby city, or somewhere new you both haven't been. Sometimes just heading out without a plan is the greatest adventure of them all.

20. A Target shopping trip.


Take her to Target and give her a budget of 20 or more dollars. Take a cart and you two go shopping all throughout the store buying whatever you want on that budget each.

21. A scrapbook of you two from birth to now.

Lily Cooper

Collect all those photos your mom took of your two and make it into a cute little scrapbook from then to now. Your best friend will appreciate all the thought that went into it, and it will be a great thing to show both of your kids!

23. A disposable camera.


Buy a disposable camera and some film and go around your town all dressed up and fancy. Take photo after photo with each other as you do things. Take the film to a store and develop it. It's a fun and antique way to make memories that aren't digital.

24. Amazon Prime account.


I don't remember life without Amazon Prime. Don't let you bestie live without it either.

25. Yourself.

Lily Cooper

This is best for long-distance bff's. Book a plane ticket, buy some balloons, and surprise her on her birthday. She will literally not see it coming and it will be a fun time for everyone. Make sure you tell someone your coming though so you can plan where and when to surprise her.

There you have it! 25 amazing birthday gifts for your childhood BFF! They are all unique and tailored to be meaningful gifts that she will enjoy. Let me know if I missed anything on the list in the comments below!

To The Girl Who Always Feels Left Out

Maybe next time...

To the girl who always feels left out,

Girl, let me just tell you, I know the feeling. It feels as though my whole life, I have been that girl. You know that feeling when you are standing in a group of people and someone comes up and asks everyone to go to lunch in that group... But you?

Or they make it even worse by saying "Oh, I guess you can come too." You guess I can come to?

No, thank you.

At that point, you feel like the only reason you are being invited is that they feel like they have to. Which more than likely is actually the case. What about when you ask your friend to hang out and she can't because she will be doing homework all night? However, an hour later, you see her with your other best friend. Oh okay cool, sorry for bothering you with my friendship.

You know you are the girl who is always left out when you are the designated "photographer" or you have to specifically ask if you can take a picture with them because they are obviously done taking pictures and did not want one with you.

We all know "Hey, will you take this picture of us?" all too well. Am I right, ladies? Oh yeah, it is fine. I hate being in pictures. I definitely hate taking pictures to remember this wonderful time I'm having.

What about when you and your friends discuss doing something later during the week and you ask about it but "It's probably not happening anymore." Then you check and would you look at that, your "friends" are having fun without you.


Oh but don't worry about it, I had things to do anyway. You know, clean the house, work on homework that is due next week, binge-watch The Office for the third time this week. Fun stuff. Oh and better yet when you see your friends are hanging out without you. The next time they see you, they talk about how much fun they had.

Oh yes, please tell me about how much fun you had without me. I totally enjoy hearing about how "I totally missed out" and "I should have come." Well, an invite would have been well appreciated. But maybe next time, right? Wrong.

Yeah, I know what you are thinking, "Wow this girl is being so petty." Well if you are thinking that, then you obviously do not know the feeling. And to think about it, you probably are not the one in the friend group who is being left out. So think about who that person is and make them feel included next time. It would be greatly appreciated. You do not know how much of a difference it could make.

Yes, I know everyone feels left out sometimes, but time after time, it starts to get really old. Then after you have to start inviting yourself to hang out with people, you realize well since they are not inviting me themselves, maybe they don't want me here. And then surprisingly, you stop hanging out with them. Hmmm, I wonder what could've possibly happened.

Yes, I know, most people do not do this on purpose. I am sure I have even done it once or twice without realizing it, and I am truly sorry.

From one left out girl to another,

Good Luck

7 Signs You've Found An Authentic Friend

Never take true friendships for granted.


In a generation like ours, sometimes it's hard to distinguish a lifelong friend from a temporary one. There are friends for every part of your life: your childhood friends, college friends, work friends, and even friends that you play poker with at your retirement home. But one thing holds true during your life journey, hold on to your authentic friends. Here's how to distinguish one from an ordinary friend.

1. They remember specific details you've told them in the past.


How did they remember that your dog was turning 12 on June 6th? It's because they genuinely take the time to listen to you. This shows how much they care and want to know about your life.

2. They care about your well-being.


If you've heard your friend say things like "drive safe" or "text me when your flight lands", this shows how much they care about your safety. Authentic friends will make sure you are protected and feeling happy.

3. They always want the best for you.


We all know there is a big difference between a jealous friend and a supportive friend. Surrounding yourself with friends that want the best for you is important. More positivity will be brought in your life if you are aware of maintaining an encouraging environment for yourself.

4. They will be extremely honest with you.


True friends say it like it is. They won't lie and tell you your skirt matches your shoes if it doesn't. Honesty is the best policy when it comes to distinguishing a genuine friend.

5. They keep your secrets safe.


You can trust them and tell them anything. Authentic friends won't repeat secrets you've told them to anyone else, and this is such a refreshing feeling! These are reliable and trustworthy people.

6. They will go out of their way to help you.


This relates to caring about your well-being because they will do anything for you. Your true friends will go the extra mile without hesitation. They will be there for you wherever you need them and won't expect a favor in return.

7. They embrace your goofy side.


Everybody's got one! If you are able to be your true goofy self around your people then you, my friend, have found a true one! Enjoy being weirdos together.

If any of your friends meet these criteria, then you are blessed! Never take your true friendships for granted.
