Best friends are somehow simultaneously the easiest and hardest people to shop for.

So if finding the perfect present for your best friend has you slightly stumped, don't fret. These holiday gift ideas will prove to your bestie that no one knows them better than you do.
And whether your BFF's favorite toys come in the form of tech accessories, bold lipsticks, home decor, or even something sweet to sip on, this list has them covered. Which means that, no, this year won't be like every year before where you stressed until the very last minute to pick the perfect present only to settle on something that lacked the personal touch you were searching for.
