Girl Power

Surprising someone with something they like is one of the best feelings, especially when it’s a person who is very close to you. However, deciding on what to get them can be complicated. We often have to balance between a specific budget and their taste, which is challenging. Ultimately, everyone wants to get an original yet practical gift that will be remembered for the years to come. Here are some tips on what to get your best friend if you are having trouble deciding.

Consider what they like

When choosing a present for our best friend, we often want to fulfill some wish they would never have on their own. Along those lines, if our friend like shoes, and she already has 15 pairs, we wouldn’t have anything against buying the 16th pair. The important thing is to be creative. If they like “Doctor Who”, you can order a Tardis mug online. If they are passionate about make-up, get them an organizer or décor for their vanity table. One of the best ideas for anyone who likes animals and has where to keep them is to get them a rescued dog or cat.

Spice up the accessorize you get them

Accessorize is the most common gift whether you are getting it for a male or female friend. Some examples are watches, wallets, and jewelry. A leather monogram wallet is a personalized wallet created for every person’s wish. They can have initials carved into the leather, and besides looking chic and interesting, they are functional as well. They have enough space to hold all your cards and money, making them practical for everyday use. On the other hand, if you decide to give them a much-needed watch, you can have it engraved with a favorite quote or even a funny inside joke. A piece of jewelry you can choose according to their facial features. A blue stone necklace to complement their eyes for example, or shiny, dark earrings to go with their hair. For men, a thin leather bracelet would be an ideal gift you can give in a dark matte box.

Gifts you can’t go wrong with

If there is nothing in particular that you would like to buy for your best friend, there are some gifts that are always timeless classics. A perfume or cologne bottle is a very sophisticated and elegant present that everybody likes. It doesn’t matter if they already have some at home, you can add to their perfume collection. To step aside from the previously mentioned gifts such as jewelry and watches, an all-time favorite gift regardless of gender and age is a good book. It’s something you can give for a special occasion, such as graduation or purpose knowing what your friend likes to read. However, even if you don’t know, there are some books that are going to be read years from now, and you can’t go wrong with them. A personal note from you will make it even more valuable and a memorable gift for years to come. However cheesy it may seem, a picture frame with photos of some of your favorite moments together is something that will look great in their living room. If you want to take it a step further, a Polaroid camera is the cutest way to capture all of your favorite future moments together.

The most important thing about gifts is for them to represent the person you are giving it to in a way. Any gift no matter how simple it is can become unique if you put your own twist to it. And that is something your best friend will appreciate the most. After all, it’s true what they say about thought being the thing that counts.
