100 Gifts for the Best Friend

From Donut Scented Candles to Hand-Shaped Emoji Hooks

— December 23, 2017 — Lifestyle
Whether its something that helps to preserve treasured memories or something that references an inside joke, these gift for the best friend are perfect for every BFF.

For best friends who don't take each other too seriously, it's a great idea to go for a gift that will evoke a laugh or two. Some great options include DCL's tiny Ax Pizza Cutter, BigMouth Inc's Instagramable avocado pool float, or Jason Lempieri's Laundry Punching Bag.

Of course, if you're looking for something a bit more sentimental, there are plenty of gifts for the best friend that help to capture unforgettable moments. For instance, the Polaroid OneStep 2 prints vintage-style Polaroid pics that can be displayed instantly. Another option is Buzzfeed's Tasty Cookbook, which can be personalized with different sections and messages.
