5 gifts for your best friend


Picking out gifts for your best friend should be easy, after all, they’re your best friend. You should be able to make a list of (at least) 50 different perfect gifts that you’d both love, right?



It should be easy, in theory, but like so many things, when it comes to putting pen to paper, it’s just not all that simple - as we’re sure that you’re currently finding out. Yes, shopping for friends, and just about anyone for that matter, is never as easy as we first think - especially when on a budget. 


Maybe you’ve got something in mind that’s just a little too pricey. Maybe you’ve managed to leave it so last minute that you’ve got to decide and buy today. Maybe you’ve got absolutely no clue where to start, or maybe you’re just extra prepared and looking for some stocking fillers (is that a birthday thing) to top the day off. 


Whatever your reasoning, there’s nothing to worry about, if you’re stuck for ideas and are in need of just a little bit of inspiration, leave Pinterest and Wish alone, we’ve got you covered with 5 awesome gifts for your best friend. 


HomeTop - Hot water bottle with brown bear cover



First up on the list, we’ve got a good old hot water bottle - one of the greatest gifts a best friend can either give or receive. 


Our pick is simple, the HomeTop hot water bottle with a brown bear cover, as featured on GiftWits, that combines two of the greatest things in life - hot water bottles and cuddly stuffed brown bears. 


This little fella will keep your best friend warm for a full night, acting as a fantastic little remedy for aches, pains and sports injuries that they may have picked up. Alternatively, if your friend is somewhat backward, they can even use the bottle for cold purposes, filling the container with ice and cool water. 


The soft and cuddly cover is machine washable and magic tape makes sure that the bottle stays nice and hidden when it’s time for cuddling up. A perfect gift, if I do say so myself. 


Twinkle In Time - Custom star map


Next up on the list, one of the very best customizable gifts to suit any best friend around the glove - the Twinkle In Time custom star map.


The custom star map allows those purchasing to select both a date and a location alongside a handful of styling cues to make a gift that’ll really make an impression. Choose your best friend’s date and place to birth, or the day and place you first met for maximum tear-jerking action. 


The map stands at a meaty 18" x 24" and, with the styling options available, will look fantastic in anybody’s home or office space. Nothing quite has the reaction that personalized gifts have and with Twinkle In Time’s custom star map, there’s not a whole lot better. 


Kool8 - Stainless steel water bottle



Ever have that one friend that is constantly forgetting their water bottle, is buying plastic (single-use) water bottles and seems to complain daily that they need to drink more water? 


Look no further, the perfect gift is afoot - the particularly handsome Kool8 stainless steel water bottle. Combining practicality with an effortless, modern style (available in 3 great colors) - the Kool8 water bottle is the must-have liquid accessory at the top of everyone’s list. 


Not only does it look great, but it’s fully insulated, thanks to its double-walled vacuum insulation design, has industrial strength, courtesy of the stainless steel construction and even comes with a tea infuser - because why not? 


It’s the gift that keeps on giving and not only does your best friend receive a great water bottle that they can cherish and (hopefully) never lose again, but 20% of the profits go towards delivering clean water to those in underprivileged regions throughout the world. 


A company with a great product and a good heart. 


Polaroid - Snap instant camera


If there’s one gift that I absolutely love to give, it’s the gift of memories - cute right, I know. 


But memories are only ever eternalized by means of photo and video, so that’s exactly what’s next up on our list with an instant snapper. More specifically, the Polaroid Snap instant camera, as featured in CTC mag, that brings a fantastic retro feel into the modern world of photography. 


The instant digital camera snaps higher quality images that it’s retro cousin, but that magic and charm of pictures printing out in under a minute still exists. There’s no better way to celebrate a birthday than with a polaroid camera at a party and the scrapbook creation that inevitably takes place in the days following. 


With a simple, but pleasing design for buyers with a modest budget, it’s a fantastic gift that’s guaranteed to draw a smile from any good friends face. 


Freida Joe - Wooden massage and relaxation kit


Last, but by no means least, you’ve made it all the way down to the spa day - or should I say spa kit. 


If you’ve not quite got the budget, let alone the time, to plan out a full spa day, the next best thing is a spa kit and there’s not too many better budget options than that from Fredia Joe. With a collection of relaxation devices (some of which look like torture instruments) you can be sure that your best friend enjoys a moment of calm in their already wild birthday week. 


With cooling shower gel, lush bubble bath, wooden massage comb, wooden reflexology stick, scrubbing loofah, scented candle, and fragrant potpourri there’s nothing more that’d you’ll need (bar a couple of cucumber slices) for the ultimate relaxation. Made from high-quality ingredients to relax, rejuvenate and revitalize not just the body, but the mind and soul too - you might not even recognize your friend as they become ultra-relaxed. 


Perfect for after a long day, birthday week or even to incorporate into the evening routine - there’s nothing better.
