No one said it better than Carrie Bradshaw in the Sex and the City movie when she said, “They say nothing lasts forever, dreams change, trends come and go, but friendships never go out of style.” It’s true— your best friends are always there through the good and bad and what’s better than to share this gratitude with them? This National Best Friends Day, here are eight best friend gift ideas at every price point.
- Open When… Letters: For the BFF who has everything, or for the longtime BFF to whom you have already given everything, here is a unique, personalized best friend gift. Taking inspiration from the ultimate rom-com, P.S. I Love You, these letters are the perfect gift for a longtime friend because you can include every inside joke or heartfelt story, and they are nearly free to make!
- The Bestie Journal: This little book contains fill-in-the-blank lines to describe why your best pal is the bomb. Just complete each line and voilà: you have an uniquely personal gift a BFF will read again and again. Make it as sly, silly, or sweet as you choose! Cute best friend gifts don’t get any better—for BFFs old and young alike. Plus, for just under eight dollars, it’s a nice gift if you’re on a budget but want to remind your BFF of all the reasons you love him or her.
- Best Friend Location Mug: If you and your best friend live across the country, send them this customized mug for only $13 with your city and state location. Now, with every morning coffee, he or she will be reminded of your friendship.

- Matching Necklaces: If you have more than one best friend in your group, give these matching necklaces or bracelets to show off your bond. You can customize the metal choice to match or have each item be unique per person. Both items and metals are perfect to mix and layer jewelry with.
- Mask Set: If you want to pamper your bestie, send him or her this Origins mask set for only $23. This set includes a two-in-one Retexturizing Mask with Rose Clay which exfoliates and deep cleans to refine the skin and restore a youthful-looking glow, the Active Charcoal Mask which unclogs pores, dissolves impurities, and helps keep skin clear, and the ultra-rich Intensive Overnight Mask which hydrates instantly and helps repair skin’s barrier overnight. Your best friend’s pores will thank you.
- Indoor Gardening Kit: For the organic friend who loves to cook, an indoor gardening pot set to grow his or her favorite herbs is the perfect gift for this year’s National Best Friends Day. Purchase three plants at your local gardening supply store and voilà: you have the ideal gift ready for their next meal.
- Polaroid Camera: For instant memories, you can buy your best friend this Fujifilm camera for $65. Your BFF will be able to snap memories and post it on his or her wall at home or on Facebook. This camera comes in a variety of colors to match your best friend’s style.
- Mermaid Makeup Brushes: If your bestie has ever dreamed of being a mermaid, or if your bestie’s favorite Disney Princess is Ariel, this is the gift for her. At $74 you can get her a set of Glam Clam makeup brushes that are both practical and stylish.
No matter what type of best friend you have, there is a gift for everyone at every price point. From the childhood best friend to the master chef, show your BFF how much he or she means to you with a gesture that is greater than an Instagram post.
