How to Choose a Birthday Gifts for Friends
1. For the Sentimental Friend
Gifting your best friend a framed photo of the two of you is thinking, but if you’re looking to take things up a notch, consider gifting them a customized portrait of the two of you. Many websites offer portrait-making services that only require you to submit the photo you want to be recreated.
The portrait can include anything you want on it, so you can even include a special message to go along with it. Once it’s been created, simply place it in a nice frame for an extra added touch; voila, you’ve got the perfect gift!
2. For the Party Animal
Consider all the nights you and your bestie have spent over a bottle (or two) of wine together. A monogrammed wine stopper with her initial on it is a great way to help keep the tradition alive. The next time you’ve both popped open a bottle, she’ll have her custom wine stopper at the ready to save it for another night.
3. For the Introvert
If you and your best friend have bonded over lounging around with a pint of ice cream and Netflix, then a pajama set is an ideal gift. Make sure that you browse the web for the comfiest set that you can find, and consider getting a matching pair for yourself!
4. For the Nature Lover
Indoor plants are becoming more and more popular these days and can add an extra added pop of color to any room. A plant is a gift that keeps on giving since it can last a while (provided that your bestie can take care of it). If you are unsure of whether or not your best friend can keep a plant alive, consider gifting a succulent or another type of plant that requires little to no maintenance.

5. For the Lifelong Friend
Who says that grown-ups can’t have matching best friend necklaces too? You may not be in middle school anymore, but this doesn’t mean that your bestie won’t appreciate a matching set of jewelry with you. Trade-in your heart necklaces for something nicer, such as a gold-plated bangle with a sweet message engraved into it. This gift will serve as a constant reminder that despite being adults, the two of you will always find time for one another.
6. For the Beauty Guru
As you get older, skincare products become like gold. However, some skincare products can be pricey. If you’re feeling tempted to spoil your best friend a little extra this year, consider getting her some of her favorite skincare products.
Your gift doesn’t have to be that extravagant either. Face masks or even a jade roller make a fun but useful gift that the two of you can enjoy together.
7. For the Wine Lover
What better way to say “I love you” than with a monthly wine subscription? Many websites offer these services and even allow you to customize the bottles that you want your bestie to receive each month. Who knows? If she’s feeling extra nice, she may even be willing to share them with you!
8. For the Friend Who is Always Stressed Out
If you’ve noticed that your bestie has been on edge lately, perhaps consider getting her a massage pillow to help her relax. These massage pillows are ideal because you can take them with you wherever you go, thus allowing you to enjoy the luxury of a massage away from home.
9. For the Tea Lover
If you’ve got a tea lover on your hand, then perhaps a box of assorted teas would be your best bet. Pick out her favorite kinds and gift them with a customized mug.
10. For the High Maintenance Friend
If your best friend doesn’t have time to hit the salon but is in desperate need of a manicure, gift her with a manicure box that comes complete with polish, clippers, and a buffer to get the full salon experience at home.
