Wherever we are in life, there’s a person or a handful of people backing us up. They’re our best friends, bestie or bff whom we can just turn to when life gets gloomy or even when we are at our happiest. It’s true when they say that a problem shared is a problem halved or solved. And it’s also true that happiness multiplies when shared. Apart from our family, we have people in our lives whom we treat as sisters or brothers at heart, our dearest best friends, of course! There’s actually a day aimed to celebrate National Best Friend’s day and if you are looking for a pleasant gift to give on that celebratory date or probably for their birthday, then you can definitely count on us! Because that’s what best friends do.

I remember, being young and having a whole community of best friends, but as I get older (but still young at heart), my friendship gaming reduced in half. But that’s not a bad thing, as we mature, we change and we grow. A best friend to me can be many things, an inspiration, a confidante, someone that I can fully trust and someone whom I have the strongest bond. I try to keep my friendship to a minimum because stronger relationships are far more important than having too many acquaintances, quality over quantity in all aspects of life; that’s what I wanted to drive.

Now when it comes to giving gifts and surprising them, you may want to move the heavens and mountains to make it happen. And it’s never about material gifts and all sorts of tangible stuff, but it’s really the thought that counts!

So on to our gifts and friendships, I’ve rounded up 30 gift items to celebrate life with your BFF! Cross my heart and hope to die, these gifts will surely make them say, awww!
