It’s your best friend’s birthday and I can imagine the anxiety which is kicking in every once in a while. How truly you know a person will be seen when you gift them something? Before gifting, there is always a lot of brainstorming. There is always a lot of “oh, what if she won’t like it?”, “This is not in my budget!”, “I want to do something different on my best friend’s birthday.” and many others. Well, I am the same. I start planning months before and still, it’s never enough. So, here are some ideas that you can use.
1. PERSONALIZED GIFTS (Memory Map)
We know that this has become mainstream now. But, getting a personalized gift is a special feeling. You can gift a personalized unique BFF pin, photo albums, Caricature stand, and many more. They are cool and your best friend will definitely feel special.
2. IS HE/SHE A DIE HARD FRIENDS FAN?
Last year, I was in a dilemma about the gift? It was my best friend’s 22nd birthday and I couldn’t let it go without making it special. She is a die-hard FRIENDS sitcom fan. Well, I was roaming in Pacific Mall, Subhash Nagar, Delhi when I found a very cute shop that has a lot of FRIENDS franchise products. I gifted her a notebook with “SMELLY CAT, SMELLY CAT, WHAT ARE THEY FEEDING YOU?” written on it. She was delighted. You can buy these gifts from various websites such as Amazon and The Souled Store. You can get t-shirts, mugs, posters, notebooks and many more.
3. ADVENTUROUS SURPRISE!
Are you an adventurous set of best friends who like to explore more and the normal gift ideas really bore you? Well, if that is the case here, then, this is going to blow your mind. Surprise your best friend and take her on paramotoring experience in Gurgaon. This is a little expensive but you can spend a little more for a life-time experience. See the beauty of Delhi from the sky and I don’t think anything can be better than this.
4. BE CREATIVE!
Nothing can beat the happiness of a handmade gift. So, if you are creative and want to surprise your best friend, then, make something. It can be the handmade scrapbook with all the pictures of both of you and beautiful notes written on them. If you don’t want to go out, then, you can make her favourite dish and then spend a beautiful day at her home, watching your favourite sitcom. Perfect, isn’t it?
5. DID YOU SAY A SURPRISE PARTY?
If your best friend is a social queen and she has many friends, then, throwing a surprise party is a great idea. You may need help and assistance from others, but, it’s a classic. Invite your friends, bake a cake, decorate the room, and SURPRISE!!
6. FOR BOOKAHOLICS!!
Well, if your best friend is a bookaholic, then, what could be better than gifting her/him books and other quirky gifts. You can give them the books that they love or you can order a box of happiness from The Big Book Box. In one box, there are bookmarks and books and lots of other kinds of stuff. Doesn’t that sound great?
7. DO THEY LOVE MAKEUP?
Is your best friend one of them who loves makeup and always contour her face before going out and is mad about lipsticks? Then, what can be better than gifting them skin products? You can gift them the skin products from Skin Craft, Lipsticks from Nykaa, and many more.
8. IF THEY ARE FAN OF FRAGRANCE, GIFT THEM ATTAR!
I am a smell-person. I like to smell good and fresh. I like different perfumes and attar. Last year, my best friend gifted me with a sweet-smelling attar and no gift can be better than that. You can buy attar online or from Connaught Place and even from the very famous Chandni Chowk.
9. GO ON A DATE!
If you can not think of any idea, then you can go on a date with your best friend. Time is a gift that you can give to them. Pick a beautiful cafe and have lunch there. Head over to the Arcade zone and be competitive, kill everyone, and dance together. Nothing can beat this idea of a gift. You can go to SMASH if you want to have fun like The Kissing Booth best friends’ duo.
10. IS YOUR BEST FRIEND A POTTERHEAD?
Again, if your best friend is a potter head, then gift them any product from the Harry Potter franchise and we know that they will love it. A wand, Harry Potter’s specialized phone case, t-shirts, and whatnot. Moreover, if you’re from Delhi, go to The Hogwarts Cafe and celebrate her birthday. Nothing can beat this.
So, this was the list of ideas of gifts that you can gift to your best friend. I hope you will use some of these ideas. In the end, don’t forget the birthday punches.
