BFF Stylish Birthday Gift Ideas

Having a best friend is like having a sister of your own choosing. You can share unimaginable things with her and only you two can understand the fashionable comeback of the ‘90s low rise pants or the fact that paying $800 for the latest Manolo Blahnik pumps is worthwhile. So, when the time comes for you to celebrate the day when your above-average stylish best friend landed on this average planet, you should do your best to give her the most amazing gift there is. Now, we are sure that no one knows your BFF as well as you, so you must know what she wants, but hey, after all those years of friendship if you are running out of ideas, it is ok. We will help you with that. 

In the history of friendship there has been not a single one gift that can outplay the matchy-match gifts for BFFs. Luckily, today there is a plentitude of such options, from the classical necklaces with puzzle pendants (best and friend) to the more modern variants like personalized matching iPhone cases. You can make things a bit more original by using some of your inside jokes or nicknames and engraving them on jewelry or printing on t-shirts.

Mastering a Makeup Skill 
If there is a one secret that every girl wants to know is how to apply her makeup perfectly. So, give her the necessary tool and manuals. It can be one of the two top makeup trends like smoky eyes or contouring palette and written guidelines or you can even sign her up for a short makeup course (do not worry, you will benefit from that too). 

Ready to Snap
Your stylish BFF surely deserves for all that stylishness to be captured in time and kept in the form of a photo book. Really, there is no girl who would not want a professional photo shoot and to feel like a supermodel if just for a day. If you want you can join her on a couple of photos and make a nice memory.

Let Her Choose
Sometimes the best is to let her choose her own gift, especially when it comes to clothes. No matter how well you know someone’s style, you can always make a mistake about size or some other detail. You can buy her a gift card in her favorite boutique, top it up with an appropriate sum, and then go shopping together.

Go All Crazy on Her 
We do not mean literally. Gifts are there to bring laughter and joy, so try to find some interesting yet quirky gifts for your friend. Usually you will not need anything more than a stable WiFi and a good idea. It can be anything ranging from a fun and unusual mug and animal-shaped ring holder to a framed cartoon of you two.

Sing Along
Music gifts are great, but if you have already worn out all the ideas, try something more original. Get your friend a full-blown home karaoke system so you can spend all of your fancy pajama parties with fun and laughter and dreams of becoming a superstar. Who is Lady Gaga anyway?

Fashionably Up-to-Date
Help your best friend to keep up with all the important events in the fashion world by giving her a subscription on some of the popular fashion magazines. Marie Claire, Cosmpolitan and Elle are ok, but if you want to step up the game opt for the impeccable Vogue. 

A Getaway for Two  
The most perfect and the undeniably most fashionable BFF getaways would be Paris, Milan or some similar heaven on earth, but if you cannot afford that or simply do not have enough time, a nearby city with a decent hotel and fabulous partying options will be enough.

Your BFF will know how to appreciate the effort you invest in making your own gift for her. You can make a friendship bracelet, or some more original gifts like a jar with messages for each day of the year, a deck of cards converted into a 52 things I love about you book, etc. 

Happy gift hunting girl!
