Let’s be honest, holiday gift shopping for your closest friends can either be easy, because you know them so well, or super tough, because you know exactly how picky they can be! Whatever your budget, it’s all about giving them something more personalized that you know they will love and actually use — this is not the time for generic, cookie-cutter presents.
So forget gift cards and last-minute drug store finds, you’ll want to treat your besties to something extra special this year, something that will genuinely delight and pamper. After all, they’re the real ones who were in the group text/WhatsApp and your DMs daily, keeping you entertained and hopeful even through the tough moments in this long, long pandemic year.
We’ve got you covered, whether you’re hoping to really spoil your BFF or looking for brilliant group present ideas that everyone can chip in for. From a one-of-a-kind catchall handmade in Vancouver, to a screen-printing kit for burgeoning creatives, to a plan for a surprise Canadian road trip, there are new and fun gift ideas for everyone on your phone’s favourites list — whether they live near or far.
Here’s what to get your best friends this holiday season.
