Your best buddy does plenty of wonderful things for you. She’s always there to give you honest outfit advice, split a bottle of wine, or pour over your latest texting convo with your crush. But you're only human, and sometimes, you take your friendship for granted. Luckily, the holidays give you a wonderful excuse to buy your best friend a great gift and reflect on how special she is. Three cheers great friends! (Plus, three cheers for the material objects that enable us to keep them)!
Between the office parties and family get-togethers, drinking egg nog and binging on holiday movies with your biffle is basically what you’re living for this festive season. Your gift should say, “Thank you for the endless hours spent listening to me rant about work! Also, thanks for blowing off work to diligently deconstruct Scream Queens via g-chat with me!” Although picking out the perfect present seems hard (and stressful), it doesn't have to be. After all, it's really not about the cash you spend on a BFF gift. Say it with me now… It’s the thought that counts.
