Favorite Friend Gift Ideas

Gift Guide


Have you ever wondered how to be the favorite friend? Give off the calendar gifts! 

As we get older, it is harder and harder to stay in touch. Not because we don’t care as much as we did before, but because life happens. Work, Husbands, Kids! It is a lot to juggle. Be the friend that is there for all of the big life moments that aren’t your typical holidays – engagements, moving into a new home, becoming a dog mama, or just celebrating them randomly for the fabulous friend they are. Below are some fun examples of gifts so you can be the favorite (and thoughtful) friend!

Newly Engaged

When you get engaged, you want your new monogram on everything (at least I did!). Stationary, bags, towels – your newly engaged friend will eat it up. In case you missed my post on how to DIY your own monogram straw tote, you can read it HERE

New Home

Moving into a new home is a big deal! Help them get settled into their new place with delivered cookies (you will absolutely be the favorite friend then), a sweet card, or a personalized address embosser.

Proud Dog Mama

Congratulate your friends on their new bundle of fur with a fun toy basket, stylish leash (because you have to look fabulous even when walking the dog), or a personalized pet portrait (how stinking cute is that?!).

Busy Lady

We we all have that #girlboss friend who does everything. Seriously, how does she do it?! The girl doesn’t have time to go to the spa but she looks fabulous. Send her a fun spa day at home with nail polish, makeup bag, face mask, and lotion. She will love it! Or just send your friend a little love note. Snail mail is the way to go!
