43 Gifts for Best Friends

From Sandwiched Friendship Jewelry to Digital Friendship Devices

— August 1, 2013 — Lifestyle
When it comes to International Friendship Day, you won’t want to forget about gifts for best friends. The notion of giving your best friend a friendship bracelet or a locket may take you back elementary school, but twists on these items like tattoo versions of these jewelry pieces or integrated technology like touch simulators help these items to grow up. Even if you can’t stand each other at times, these items are sweet ways to show that you value their friendship.

Since you know your friend better than anyone else, there are a range of quirky gifts that could appeal to their interests. Instead of a traditional friendship ring, why not gift a Mario or Luigi head ring to your geeky gamer friend? After all, it’s nice to know you’ll always have a “Player Two.”
