20 Bright Ideas For Gifting Your Best Friend

Are you wondering what gifts to buy your friends this holiday season? We can relate. How to find the perfect present for the person who you rant to over glasses of Sauv Blanc and helps you organize your impulse purchases into keeps and throwaways? Choosing the best gifts for your best friends is tricky — because, while you’ll talk to them at length about anything under the sun, you don’t want to ruin the holiday surprise by straight-up asking your BFF what they want for Christmas this year. You have to be able to read their mind like they read yours, obviously.
Are you lucky enough to have a ride-or-die best bud who’s by your side as you cue up that Mariah Carey album, bookmark wreath-making tutorials on Pinterest, and make an exhaustive gift list as the holidays approach? Don’t worry, friend — we’ll take it from here. We found 20 gifts that say “ILYSM” to your best pal ahead. Because maybe you and this person do share a brain after all?
