Most of us are deep into at least thinking about Christmas gifts. You might have even started your shopping already. Whether you are the kind of person that buys gifts for all of their friends and relations or someone that prefers to only buy for close family and friends, you’ll probably want to get something for your best friend.
Our best friends are the people that are always there for us. They are the people that celebrate our successes and pick us up when we are down. They are our shoulder to cry on and our person to get excited with. They are the family that we choose, and they deserve something to show them how much we care.
When it comes to buying gifts for friends, it’s tempting to go for the good old bathroom gift set. It’s easy, it’s relatively cheap, and everyone needs bathroom products. But, it’s not thoughtful. Your best friend deserves more (unless they really love shower gel). Here are some fun gifts for your best friend.
A Spa Day
Is anything more relaxing than a day at the spa with your best friend? It’s the perfect chance to catch up if you haven’t had much time lately, and nothing beats a massage to fight off festive stress. You might want to enjoy this gift in the run-up to Christmas to really make the most of the relaxation.
A Dinner Date
Arrange a night out for you both. Organize baby sitters if you need to and book a table at your favorite restaurant when neither of you is working. Often, time together away from the stresses of home is better than a gift.
A Girls Night In
If a night out isn’t on the cards anytime soon, how about planning a festive girls night in? You could have a takeaway or cheese board and enjoy some of your favorite festive films.
A Trip to the Piercers
Piercings are always popular, and they are undoubtedly fun. If your friend already has a piercing, belly bars jewellery can be great gifts. If not, or if they want more, why not head to the piercers together to hold each other’s hands as you get something new.
A Pamper Parcel
If you’d rather give a gift than an experience or night out, how about a pamper parcel so that they can treat themselves to an evening of relaxation at home. Fill it with things like bubble bath, face masks, wine, chocolates, and a book or DVD.
Classes or Lessons
As we get older, learning becomes more appealing. But, we’ve generally got less time for it. If there’s something that your friend has always wanted to learn, or they’ve got a hobby that they particularly enjoy, book them a set of classes or lessons.
Promises for 2020
You don’t need to get them a gift at all. You could instead sit together, making promises for 2020. Agree to see each other for dinner at least once a month or visiting more. Make some specific plans and write down your promises to each other, so that you are more likely to stick to them.
