After you read this post you’ll have so many insanely good best friend gifts for any occasion.

This post is all about the best gifts for best friends.

The Best Gifts For Best Friends

1. Summer Fridays Lipbalm

Everyone has been absolutely raving about this lip balm on tiktok lately. I haven’t bought it for myself (yet) but I’ve heard it is the best lip balm ever. This would be the perfect gift for a lip product junkie!

2. Shadow Work Journal

Sale

If your friend is in their healing era, this would be a great gift to help them work through stuff. It has shadow work prompts to help you heal from things. I’ve seen so many people using this and loving it lately.

3. CosRx Snail Mucin

Sale

If you’re on tiktok at all you must’ve heard of this a thousand times already because everyone and their dog has been talking about it. Apparently this is the holy grail of skincare products and is amazing for your skin. It’s the perfect gift for a skincare junkie!

4. Travel Jewelry Case

I’m putting this on the list because it’s something I realized I really need after traveling and almost knocking my jewelry in the sink. If your friend travels at all and wears jewelry, this would be a great gift (so they don’t lose their stuff down the sink).

5. Stanley

According to everyone, Stanley cups are just the bomb. If your bestie needs an emotional support water bottle, a Stanley cup would be so perfect!

6. Pixi Blush Stick

I wanted to buy this so bad this summer when it was blowing up, but it was always sold out. This blush stick is so stunning and gorgeous when you put it on!

7. Perfume

Sale

This is another thing that has been all over my tiktok for you page. I see it pretty much every other video, and people say this perfume smells so good. Someone described the smell as a woman laying down being fed grapes, if that tells you anything.

8. Workout Clothes

If your bestie likes to hit the gym or just likes to wear lounge clothes, this would be such a good gift. I would love it if one of my friends gave me new loungewear/ workout clothes as a gift.

I have this jumpsuit (I cracked and bought it after seeing it all over tiktok) and I get so many compliments! A few days ago I was at the climbing gym with my boyfriend and a couple people stopped me in my tracks to tell me how cool my outfit was. Definitely recommend!

9. Laneige Lip Balm

I consider myself somewhat of a lip balm connoisseur, and this is one of the best I’ve ever tried. It makes your lips look so plump and glowy and it tastes amazing.

Here’s a video of me using it for reference!

10. Kindle Holder And Page Turner

Sale
Sale

If your friend is a reader and has a kindle/ other tablet, they NEED this. It’s a tablet holder and a page turner remote so you can get snuggled up in bed and read without having to hold your kindle and turn the pages!

I think I would actually die if I got this as a gift. It’s the most practical thing ever that a reader would probably use every single day.

You could also use this for holding your phone and scrolling on social media hands free I believe.

11. Ancestry DNA Test

This is a bit more of an expensive gift, but if you’re wanting to get your friend something really meaningful, a DNA test would be such a cool idea.

I got an Ancestry test a few years ago for Christmas and it was one of my favorite gifts ever!

12. Wireless Charger

Wireless chargers are so convenient. You literally just set your phone on it, and it charges!

This is a great gift for anyone, but would be perfect for someone who consistently forgets to charge their phone.

13. Towel Warmer

Sale

I splurged and bought this towel warmer for myself last year on black Friday, and let me tell you. It’s one of the best (if not the best) things I’ve ever bought in my life! There is literally nothing better than having a warm towel/ robe when you get out of the shower.

This is the perfect gift to give someone who is in their self care era. It’s also a gift you’ll really want to keep for yourself.

14. New Pillows

Sale

This might seem like such a random gift idea, but you really can’t go wrong with new pillows. I used to ask my parents for new pillows as a gift every year. It’s so convenient because I feel like people will hardly ever buy themselves new pillows.

These pillows were one of the most popular products during Prime day, and for good reason! My boyfriend has them and they are so comfy that I’ve been considering buying them for my own apartment.

15. Comfy Slides

Sale

This is another product that was one of the top things sold during Prime day! These slides are allegedly super comfy, and they’re really cute!

16. Back Warmer

Sale

I can’t count how many people in my life I’ve told that they need to buy this. Seriously, it’s that good. I saw someone on my tiktok for you page using it and I was like, I have to have that. I’m so glad I bought it because it’s the best thing ever.

Its a heating pad that covers your entire back, neck, and shoulders. It’s weighted and it has a remote where you can set a timer and control the temperature!

17. Lip Tints

If you watched the tiktok earlier in the post, the one on the left was the other product I was using in it! These tints are so good and they’re so cheap. 100/10 recommend.

I recently bought the lip stain on the right and I love it! If you’re on TikTok at all, it’s the one everyone is using that you peel off your lips. It lasts all day for me!

Both of these are awesome, affordable options.

18. Kindle Paperwhite

My Kindle paperwhite is probably my favorite gift I’ve ever received. If your bestie is a reader, a new Kindle would be such an amazing gift to give them!

19. Galaxy Projector

I just bought this for my boyfriend for his birthday and it is so cool! It projects a galaxy with stars onto your ceiling and you can adjust the colors and settings on your phone. It also connects to smart home/ alexa, so you can turn it on and off with voice commands.

20. Amika Thermal Brush

This has been blowing up on tiktok in the past couple weeks, and the videos I’ve been seeing of how good it makes peoples’ hair look have really made me want to buy this for myself.

21. Uggs

This is another luxury/ splurge gift, but your friend would probably be so happy to receive them! These are on my personal gift wishlist for the holidays this year.

Dupes

Sale

If you think the boots are cute but don’t want to spend the money on name brand Uggs, these are a good dupe!

22. Passport Cover

My boyfriend got me this passport cover for my birthday this year and it is so cute! It would be such a good gift for someone who likes to travel.

23. Tree Hut Body Scrub

I tried this stuff for the first time when I was staying with a friend, and as soon as I left her house I ran to target to buy some for myself. It smells so good and makes your skin so soft! It would be so cute to put in a little gift basket.

24. DIY Gel Nail Kit

Sale

If your bestie likes to get their nails done or do their own nails, they need this kit. I save literally so much money doing my nails with this kit at home. It is so easy and my nails always look amazing!

25. Pimple Patches

This is probably the most practical gift idea on this list, but if your friend is someone who uses pimple patches religiously, they would probably really appreciate a restock. You could put it in a gift basket with some other self care items!
