Buying Christmas gifts for best friends can be either a blessing or a curse. I love Christmas gifts and spending hours browsing, but I can appreciate people that hate it and are a little bit lost, so I asked my best friends what they were asking for this Christmas and what would they like me to buy them and they gave me a LOT of good stuff!
As always, I’ve tried to include different types of Christmas gift ideas and for different budgets so you can all find what you are looking for!! Remember that clicking on the heart under the pictures and leaving your email you’ll receive a notification if the price for those items drop!! Let’s check some of the best Christmas gift for best friends:
SENTIMENTAL GIFTS FOR BEST FRIENDS
1. Custom Portrait
I absolutely love personalised gifts, I think they show a lot of care and thought and are really sentimental and valuable items. I am thinking of getting a picture of my best friend and I when we were 2 and ordering one of these insanely cute custom portraits! They are such great Christmas gifts for best friends!
2. Big Hug Christmas Gift Candle
I can’t be more in love with this idea. I think this is a really sweet gift, especially with the situation we are living now. The whole “Big Hug” thing when we can’t hug our loved ones really melts my heart. This is one of the best Christmas gifts for best friends I’ve ever seen.
3. Initial Necklace
Custom jewellery always make great gifts for best friends! It feels more personal than any other thing you can buy and we all love jewellery, don’t we? They will always think of you when wearing the necklace and I think that’s beautiful.
4. A weekend abroad together
If you can afford it, a weekend abroad together can be an incredible gift. For my best friend’s birthday last year, I gifted her the flights to England so she could visit me, and we had the best time together. She had never been to London before and it really was a fantastic week.
If you can’t afford it but her parents are willing to help, a piece of luggage for the trip can also be a good idea.
5. FabFitFun Surprise box
Every single one of my friends is obsessed with Fabfitfun and their surprise boxes. All the goodies in the boxes are insanely cute and we all want them! I think these boxes would be the ultimate Christmas gifts for best friends.

BEST CHRISTMAS GIFTS FOR BEST FRIENDS THAT HAVE EVERYTHING
6. Denim Tote Bag
Cute tote bags are like shoes, we never have enough of them. Tote bags are super handy and cute and they help the environment! This one from Urban Outfitters is really inexpensive and would make a great Christmas gift!
7. Relax and Un-Wine Gift Set
I think this is one of the best Christmas gifts for best friends on the list, genuinely. This brilliant set is everything your best friend needs to have a self-care evening with some wine. It comes with a bath bomb, a candle, a wine opener and a body lotion.
8. Nail Set
When I asked my best friend if she needed something in particular for Christmas – asking is also an option – she sent me this. She loves getting her nails done at home from the commodity of her coach, so this is what I am getting her this Christmas.
If you don’t have many Christmas gift ideas you can – check this blog – or ask your best friend or her family if she needs anything rather than spending money on pointless things.
9. Photo Printer
My best friends and I are obsessed with creating albums with printed pictures, ever since 2 of us lost our phones with years of memories in them. This photo printer is super small and we bring it everywhere we go to print our pictures instantly and make sure that we won’t lose the memory whatever happens.
10. Ring Lights
If any of your best friends is obsessed with selfies and Instagram, she is going to love this! Ring lights make selfies and group pictures a lot more professional-looking.
11. Makeup Storage Case
If you are after Christmas gifts for best friends who love all things makeup and beauty, this is the perfect gift for you. A big makeup storage case is what all makeup lovers dream of and she will be absolutely obsessed with it!
12. Sephora Favorites
Girls love perfumes but they can be really expensive. I love this set by Sephora because I can get to try a lot of different perfumes without paying the full price and then choose my favourite one. These perfumes make great Christmas gifts for best friends.
13. Anthropologie Candles
Candles are one of my favourite Christmas gift ideas, and if they are Anthropologie’s better. They are some of the best quality candles out there, the designs of the pots are insane and they last SO long. They have so many options that it gets really hard to decide on just one.
14. Premium Cocktail Shaker Set
Can this be any cuter?! I can already picture myself and my best friend getting all fancy with our drinks and having a proper cocktail night… this opens up a world full of possibilities! This goes straight into my list of perfect Christmas gifts for best friends.
15. DIY Gin-Making Kit
As a gin lover myself, this is one of the best discoveries I’ve ever done. I know this would be one of the absolute best Christmas gifts for best friends because I would die for one!!

16. Mod Clips String Lights
String lights are such a must in any college girl’s bedroom! This one has mod clips so you can print some pictures with your bf and create the cutest Christmas gift for best friends ever!
17. The 5-Minute Journal
Most of my friends are still in college and we know how stress feels. Journaling really helps me with my anxiety and is a way for me to decompress, I can’t think of a better way to say: “I care for you” than gifting you best friend with such a sweet thing.
18. Initial Mug
I have a huge collection of mugs and I love receiving them as gifts. This lovely Anthropologie mugs have an amazing design and I think they would be great Christmas gifts for best friends.
19. Friends Peephole Picture Frame
One of my best friends sent me this and I think it’s such a great idea! Any Friends lover loves merchandising and special things like this one and this picture frame would be an incredible gift for them!
20. Disposable Camera
Like my friend Judith says, the magic moment of taking a picture has kind of disappeared. We take hundreds of pictures with our phones and we delete the ones that we don’t like, and she thinks that analogue cameras capture the real good moments. I love the romanticism of the idea and I think this is one my favourite Christmas gifts for best friends on this list.
21. Vintage Earrings
Earrings are, in my opinion, one of the best Christmas gifts for best friends. I love having a lot of variety when it comes to jewellery and earrings are one of my favourite things to get as gifts.
22. Vintage Necklace
Vintage necklace to go with the vintage earrings above, and you have a perfect look! I am really in love with this necklace, one of my favourite Christmas gift ideas!
23. Open Flat Makeup Box
I didn’t know about the existence of this and I think it’s absolutely brilliant. As well as expanding fully so you’re not aimlessly rummaging around for your stuff, it also doubles up as a protective mat,. Even better, it’s available in a range of cute prints and colors.
24. Atomic Habits
Atomic Habits by James Clear is one of the best books I’ve read this year. It has helped me change my habits completely and become a lot more efficient and productive. I would gift this book to everyone if I could! Up there with the best Christmas gifts for best friends.
25. Milk Frother
This might look and sound weird if you’ve never used it, but if you are buying for a coffee addict, this is one of the best Christmas gifts for best friends! This has literally CHANGED my life when it comes to coffee and I would highly recommend it to anyone who can’t live without their morning latte!
25. Airpods case
Another great Christmas gifts for best friends who love all things cute! I have a ton of cases and I change them depending on my outfit and mood. I love these cases and I think they are great gift ideas!
