Having a best friend is one of the most thrilling experiences ever. Your best friend is your family when your real family isn’t around. That’s why it’s necessary to treat your friend to a nice gift once in a while. If you know your best friend well, then you probably know what to get, but in case you’re unsure, here are some ideas on how to make your friend happy with a unique gift:

1. Something to read

Even if your friend isn’t much of a reader, getting them a nice book can really make them happy. You just need to answer a few questions. Does your friend enjoy fiction or non-fiction? Even if they don’t like to read, you can get them a useful book on entrepreneurship or self-growth. There are numerous books you can choose from so finding something they might like shouldn’t be a difficult task. Still, if you doubt this idea, it’s better to save a book for a friend who is a true bookworm. E-books are also a good choice because your friend can read them on any device, which is much more practical, especially if they’re not really into holding a heavy book and flipping pages.

2. Something to wear

This type of gift is a bit tricky because you really need to know your friend’s measurements, but luckily, there’s always a return option, so if you’re considering buying them clothes, feel free to do it. Just make sure that it’s something they really, really like. There’s nothing worse than being given a nicely wrapped gift which turns out to be something dreadful which you’ll be forced to wear every time you’re around the person who gave you the present. Thankfully, in the age of social media, it’s easier than ever to determine someone’s taste in clothes. Just look at their posts, likes and who they follow. Yes, it’s that easy! If you’re still doubtful, buy something basic like a tee or underwear!

3. Something for their home

Buying someone a present for their home doesn’t necessarily have to be a piece of furniture or a home appliance. It can be a home decor piece or a set of linens for the bedroom. Just make sure that it’s something your friend will definitely like. If your friend likes to spend time on their own, getting them something soothing, like aromatic candle supplies will surely help them feel relaxed and calm.

Aside from these, you can get them a nice painting, table cloth, a set of cushions for the living room or a nice home plant!

4. A piece of jewellery

There’s nothing funkier than wearing a piece of jewellery, just look at any celebrity on the red carpet! A statement necklace or a pair of earrings is a great way to help your friend look more chic and elegant. If they don’t like wearing jewellery, you can get them something small and minimalist, such as a barely-there necklace or a set of rings. Many brands nowadays are turning to dainty, minimalist designs, so getting something appropriate shouldn’t be a problem. On the other hand, people who truly love jewellery can be less picky, but it’s still important to make sure you’re getting them something they’ll really wear, even if they don’t have to!

5. Make them feel warm

In case you live in a colder climate, there’s no better gift than a fuzzy blanket or a pair of comfy furry slippers. Other presents to consider include a nice bathrobe, a cute beanie for the cold winter days, a pair of gloves/mittens and the best gift there is — a pair of funny, woolly socks! You can also give them an oversized sweater they can wear to work or just use it to chill at home. Before you buy anything, make sure they’re not allergic to any of the fabrics. Your friend will certainly appreciate the gift that is both practical and adorable.

These gifts will definitely satisfy even the choosiest person there is. Just remember that, when you’re buying a present for someone you love, you’re buying it for them, and not for yourself. If you do this carefully, your friend will certainly be grateful, because when it comes to friendships, it’s always the thought that counts!
