Are you looking for a cute gift to give your best friend that will remind them of how important they are to you? I have taken the time to compile a list of super thoughtful, super sentimental, and a little bit funny gift ideas that your bff will actually love. Whether it's for their birthday, graduation, Christmas or Galentine's day, I've got you covered!

It's your best friend's birthday! It's time to celebrate another year older and another year closer to independence!

But, wait… have you decided what to get her yet? Don’t worry, I've got a few ideas for you!

I have included gift ideas that range from sassy to sentimental. Here you'll find it all!

1. Personalize Map

Buy on Etsy

Are you guys getting ready to go your separate ways to different colleges? That is so, so hard. Get your best friend something she can put up in her new dorm room. It will surely be cherished for years to come.

Not moving away from each other? Why not choose a location that is special to you; a favorite vacation, a place where you both met, your future dream house locations.

2. Bestie Morse Code Bracelet

Buy on Etsy

How cute is this bracelet!?

I am OBSESSED with it. Such a small, yet meaningful gift idea for your best friend. It's a simple bracelet that's not flashy or obnoxious and will most definitely be one she won't want to take off. So dainty!

3. Best Friend Coupon Book

Buy on Etsy

Obsessed, obsessed, obsessed!

This printable is not only an affordable "diy" gift, but it's so funny! It's borderline a gag gift, but usable with funny coupon's like "personal servant" and "will walk around complimenting you all day". Best friend, if you're reading this, can you please gift these to me!? Such a fun and cute idea. Especially if your best friend is a guy and you have absolutely NO idea what to get him!

4. Through Thick and Thin Keychain

Buy on Etsy

This keychain is essential for anyone who's your best friend right now. I'm not joking. Look at how adorable and meaningful this is! Especially if she's just learning to drive and is going to start carrying around car keys. She will absolutely lOVE this chic keychain.

5. Note Passing Journal

Buy on Etsy

If you and you best friend love passing notes in class (but are not in all the same classes), this one is for you two! I used to have a notebook like this and lOVED it! It makes the perfect keepsake after it's all filled out!

6. Personalized Record Display

Buy on Etsy

Who doesn't have their own best friend anthem?

Show your best friend some love by giving her the gift of a display of you two and your special song. This gift means everything.

7. Custom Best Friend Definition Print

Buy on Etsy

Give your bestie's (guy or girl) their own customizable "Best Friend" definition! Whenever they're feeling down, all they have to do is look at the sassy definition you've created for your friendship and be reminded about how awesome they are.

This gift is one that will be kept forever.

8. Freshman Year Bracelet

Buy on Etsy

I keep seeing these cute bracelets everywhere! Now that you guys are starting high school, you're bound to be a little nervous! This makes the perfect "back-to-school" gift.

9. BFF Penny Keychain

Buy on Etsy

This is a total must have! I got one of these for my bestie and it reminds him of when we first became friends.

Yes, girls are definitely more sentimental than guys, but that doesn't mean guys don't like receiving meaningful things either! This makes the perfect addition to any keychain.

10. Makeup Bag

Buy on Amazon

This is just TOO great! Anything funny and anything makeup has my 100% attention! This is the kind of bag you want to take with you everywhere you go.

This is one makeup bag I know your friend will adore.

11. I Wish You Lived Next Door Candle

Buy on Amazon

I have an obsession with candles. Especially lavender ones that burn for what seems like forever!

If your best friend is getting ready to leave for college, there is a 100% chance they will need a candle to clear the air (and remind them of how missed they are). Get this! Your best friend will love it!

12. Chunky Knit Blanket

Buy on Amazon

Comfy blankets are a must in every girl's life. And I know being cozy is one of all time favorite thing to be. You know this is something she'll use every day.

13. Glitter Phone Case

Your best friend's phone will thank you for this! Hands down the prettiest thing invented for an iPhone. This glittery phone case is a GORGEOUS and will do a nice job of protecting her phone. 10/10 recommend it!

14. Cute Socks

Get her simple cute socks that she can wear every day. Cute, dainty socks are SO popular right now. This will make one of the best simple gifts you can get her.

15. A Tote

Buy on Etsy

Cute totes are the best! Nothing better than walking into school with a fashionable tote that doubles as a backpack. It has so many pockets and totally worth all the hype.

16. Cute Sunglasses

Aren't these glasses just the cutest?

They are all the rage right now and I see girls wearing this style everywhere. I absolutely love them and I know your best friend will too! Plus she'll look so cute wearing them, so, win-win!

17. Stickers

Buy on Amazon

Raise your hand if you love stickers. 🙋🏻‍♀️

I don't know anyone who doesn't love them. Even when you're older and your sticker book collection is full! This collection of stickers is so grand, you're bound to find anything you're looking for in it. I'm telling you, gift her this bundle and she'll have stickers for any item she wants to add some pizazz to.

18. A Fun Gift Basket

Buy on Amazon

If you're willing to put together a gift basket for her, she will be over the moon! Look at how fantastic you can make it with this basket filler bundle.

P.S. If you don't want to do a DIY basket, you can find so many cute on Etsy or Amazon. Either way this will be such a sweet gift (no pun intended 😋).

19. Pura Vida

These bracelets are so cute!!

Chances are that your best friend could do with some cute charm in her life (I know I can). These are totally affordable on a tight budget, but so cute! The colors are perfect.

20. A Blanket Hoodie

Buy on Etsy

I have not met ANYONE who didn't love a good blanket hoodie. Yes, I laughed at my brother when he got me my first one. But then I absolutely fell in love with it!

This one comes in different colors as well. I love this color. But whatever color you get, your bestie will totally love rocking this comfy blanket.

21. Room Decor

Buy on Amazon

I mean, let's be honest. I'm 100% sure your bestie already has the cutest room (along with LED's), but if he doesn't, help him out ASAP! These lights are all the rage right now and everyone loves decorating their room with them! He will love you for getting him this, for sure.

22. Squish Mellows

Buy on Amazon

Your best friend might not be a little girl anymore, but that doesn't mean she won't still enjoy a squish mellow!! These are honestly the comfiest, coziest things to snuggle and one squeeze and you're conked out.

This would also be great as a graduation gift so that she can take it to college and sleep easy in a new place.

Hope this gift guide helped you figure out what to get your best friend! I know that whatever you decide, it will be perfect since it's coming from your heart!
