The Top 5 Best Gifts for Your Best Friend
She’s the yin to your yang, the sister you chose, the one person who, despite time, distance, and busy schedules, has always remained right by your side (even if you’re on opposite ends of the street or the world). She’s your best friend. And on June 8, it’s time to celebrate her! Because it’s National Best Friends Day and, let’s be honest, EVERY day should be about her. So, this year, lets show our bestie our love with the best gifts for her. A present so perfect, we may just need to purchase for ourselves. She won’t mind, right?
Let’s get shopping, ladies!
Adult Friendship Bracelets: A Stylish New Take On The Classic
Remember your tried-and-true friendship bracelet that you swore you’d never take off? Well, after 20-some years, I admittedly have lost mine by now. Which is why I am so excited that new, fabulous, grown-up versions have come back into fashion. And while there are many to choose from, including fun and whimsical styles with gemstones and bold colors, my bestie and I tend to be drawn to a more understated look that we can wear every day like the Tory Burch Embrace Ambition Bracelets. Made of silk in multiple colors and detailed with their signature Gemini Link charm (available in a silver tone or gold tone), 100 percent of net proceeds benefit the Tory Burch Foundation, which empowers women and women entrepreneurs. Super-stylish and supportive of women entrepreneurs? Now, that’s a present that really shows the power of giving.
Your Friendship Is A Work Of Art
When it comes to shopping for my bestie, I am obsessed with personalized presents. Whether it’s jewelry with her birthstone or cute monogramed gifts, I find that a gift that is as unique as she is is the perfect present. However, I felt like I was running out of ideas until I started seeing these adorable custom prints everywhere. Created to resemble you and your BFF, you can design every detail of the portrait online right down to the beverage of your choice! The Custom Best Friend Portrait from Wela and Co is particularly great for all you procrastinators (like me) as a digital copy of the print is emailed to you in three business days! Simply frame, wrap and gift!
Getting To The Bottom Of It! High-Rise Panties That Won’t Let Her Down
They say that in life and relationships, it’s what’s on the inside that counts, right? Well, the same can be said for your fashion, ladies. While others may focus on gifting each other a pretty blouse or dress, I prefer to present my bestie with the one garment that will offer her style, comfort, function… and, dare I say, a dash of sexiness? That’s right, I am talking about a pair of exceptionally made, high-rise, lace panties that she will look and feel great in! Her Highness Lace Briefs offers all of this and so much more - elegantly designed with four-way, stretch lace for maximum comfort and full-rear coverage while still flirty enough not to feel like “granny panties.” Available in four colors (onyx, amethyst, rose quartz, and pearl), each pair comes with a free Bloomers Intimates official laundry bag for easy washing. Now that’s what I call a well-rounded gift!
Cosmetic Cases That Multi-Task As Much As She Does!
I adore gifts that can play double-duty and make-up bags are one of them! Obviously, they are perfect for cosmetics and toiletries but as any gal-on-the-go knows, they can be used for oh so much more. From office supplies in your work case to summer essentials in your beach bag to an emergency kit for your car, the tried-and-true cosmetic case is a gift that will never go out of style. Which is why I always keep it at the top of my gift-giving list. But I won't just settle for any cosmetic case — especially when it’s for my best friend. I need a bag that is sturdy, large enough to hold all the necessities (but not too big that it takes up the whole purse), and is, of course, fashionable. The Kate Spade Flower Jacquard Stripe Large Dome Cosmetic Case checks all those boxes and more for me. Designed in their signature jacquard fabric, which is highly textured with patterns that are woven and not printed, this floral and stripe dome cosmetic case is perfectly-sized as a make-up bag or even a clutch. A true multi-tasker, just like she is!
Putting Her Best Foot Forward!
Who doesn’t love being pampered with a pedi? But if your BFF is anything like mine, she either doesn’t have the time to take care of her toes or simply puts her primping needs last. Either way, she’s probably in desperate need of a good pedicure — especially as we head into summer. So, if she just can’t make it to the salon, then why not bring the salon to her? High-quality, at-home, manicure and pedicure kits have come a long way. And since Covid, have become quite the norm for most women who turned to them when spas were forced to shut down. Taylor Made Polish even allows you to engage your creative side with their Make Your Own Polish Kits. Plus, it’s a women-owned company, which as I think I’ve mentioned, I am all about supporting!
