There’s Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Grandparent’s Day, Sibling’s Day… but what about a day for the family you choose? Although it’s not a national holiday, having a day dedicated to your best friend and partner in crime is just as important as all the national ones! A day dedicated to your adventures, memories, and futures together is a great opportunity to show appreciation for your best friend and let them know you care! This is the family you choose, remember! Make sure they know you love them and don’t miss National Best Friend Day on June 8!
You don’t have to buy anything for your best friend, but it is a good idea to spread the love in some way. Here are some ideas of little things you can do to show your appreciation, whether that’s getting a gift or spending the day together.
This is a really cute and unique gift that you can personalize for you and your best friend! This is a great gift if you have a group of best friends and want to get them something that means something to all of you. I found this bracelet on Etsy for as low at $16.00. One birthstone is $16, two is $17 and so on up to seven stones for $22. You can do just their birthstone, both of your birthstones, or everyone in the groups! You can buy this bracelet from here.
Morse Code Bracelet
Another cute and simple gift that has a hidden message that only the two of you will know! You get to pick what color beads are used so you can use your favorite colors together or just their’s. This is another Etsy find (because you all know how much I love Etsy) from WorldOfMinimalistic for only $10.47. It’s coming from the Netherlands though, so make sure you give yourself enough time if you live in the US like me!
This one is another really cute idea with the both of your initials on it! You have your choice of silver, gold, and rose gold so you can pick which ever color matches the rest of your BFF’s jewelry. You can choose up to 5 initial plates so this is another great gift for a group of friends. This one starts at $13 for one plate and goes up to $33 for the 5 plates. You can buy this from here and it ships from the US.
You’re My Person Keychain
If your BFF isn’t a fan of jewelry you can always get them a cute keychain instead! This is a cute one from Etsy with the phrase “you’re my person” on it, but you can request a custom order! This keychain can be bought here for only $16.15.
This is another cute option that is very affordable for only $2.42 per keychain! This is a great gift for groups of friends because you can each get a piece that, when together, will form a whole pizza! After all, you’re all better together! Buy this gift here.
Best Bi*ches Forever Keychain
This is probably my favorite keychain! Its a split heart that when held together form a whole phrase. This is like the necklaces we got as kids from Claire’s, but just a little more grown up and funny. You can get both pieces from here for a total of only $10.77. This is coming from the UK so make sure you order ahead of time to make sure it gets here on time!
Home & Living
You’re the Rachel/Monica to My Monica/Rachel Mug
Let’s all raise a mug to one of the most iconic dynamic duo in TV history! I’m talkin’ about Rachel and Monica from Friends, of course. And what better way to show love for you friend than with a Friends mug? I mean come on, it’s in the name! You get to pick which order you want the names to be in and it’s double sided. You have your choice between an 11 oz. mug or a 15 oz. mug starting at $12.95. Buy this here and remind your BFF she’s your lobster.
Unbreakable Bond Picture Frame
For the best friends with opposite hair colors this is a really cute gift! Pick your favorite pictures you have together and put them all in the frame so they can switch through the pictures as they please! You get to pick what color the frame is and if you want the standard or premium frame. Then you get to add your names on the bottom for a cute, personalized touch! You can buy this frame from here for as low as $14.99.
Personalized Scented Candle
If your bestie loves all things scented, they will love this personalized candle from Etsy. You get to choose from dozens of scents and personalize what the label says. The best part is they’ll associate a wonderful smell with you always, and nothing is better than that! You can buy this from here for only $20.00.
If you don’t want to spend a lot of money consider actually doing something as opposed to a gift! Here’s some ideas of what you can do together:
- Go on a picnic
- Do a day trip
- Go to the park
- Go to the beach/pool/lake
- See a movie together
- Go to a museum
- Go to a local amusement park
- Go to Color-Me-Mine
- Go to Build-a-Bear Workshop
- Go on a hike
- Have a movie night
- Have a girl’s night
- Make scrapbooks for each other (this is a great gift idea as well!)
- Do touristy activities around where you live
- Get your nails done
- Get matching tattoos (think hard about this! This is a huge commitment!)
- Go on a lunch or dinner date
- Go to brunch
- See a concert
- Enjoy each other’s company
If all else fails, a handmade or store-bought card is just as wonderful. It’s important to show them you appreciate them and that their presence in your life means so much to you!
I hope you all found this helpful and found something that you’re interested in doing!
