Christmas gift ideas for a best friend

A best friend is an invaluable gift throughout the year, always there for you to share your best and worst moments, offer advice when you need it, listen or offer a hug in difficult times. When it comes to the holidays, what can you give your best friend that shows you appreciate having her there for you? Here are some ideas that are sure to put a smile on your face.


Do you love coffee? If you can afford it, consider an espresso machine so you don’t have to spend as much money on your daily fix. If that’s too expensive, a gift card or certificate from your favorite coffee shop or a gift certificate filled with various flavored coffee beans makes a wonderful gift too.

Gourmet food

A gift basket full of gourmet goodies that she wouldn’t normally spend the money on for herself but would love to have can make an ideal gift. Depending on your tastes, heavenly dark chocolate and other sweet treats, gourmet cheeses, specialty jams, hot chocolate mix, a bottle of wine, all great ideas to fill in your own basket, and made just for her shows that you are a very thoughtful best friend.

Bath products

Everyone loves to be pampered, but often feels guilty about spending their own money on products intended to relieve stress and calm. Aromatherapy candles that can be used around the bath, bubble bath, specialty soaps, and calming gels are great gifts to soak up your worries.

Lessons or classes focused on a shared interest

Do you both love yoga, art, writing or perhaps you share a desire to travel to another country where learning a new language would be helpful? Consider the gift of taking a class together that focuses on any shared interests. This is a gift that will continue to give for many years.


Do you both love adventure? Consider a gift certificate for a girl’s day on a whitewater rafting adventure, horseback riding, zip lining, a scenic helicopter ride, or for the truly adventurous, maybe bungee jumping or skydiving?

A day of beauty

Give her a special day of beauty that you can spend together, with a gift certificate to a Spa or salon that includes a facial, manicure and pedicure, haircut and / or styling. Once you’re done and you both look amazing, consider a night out on the town; Take lots of photos and you will have wonderful memories to remember forever.
