The holidays are the perfect opportunity to show the people you love how much they mean to you — and that includes your BFFs. Sadly, though, if your bestie lives hundreds (or thousands) of miles away, you're probably not going to be sharing holiday cheer over festive movie marathons or ice skating. That's where the perfect stylish gift for your long-distance BFF comes in.
While a present in the mail isn't the only way to tell them that you love their fun, crazy, perfect self, it sure does show them that you're their on your mind. There's an art to finding the perfect gift for your best friend, though. Since you'll have to ship it, choosing something that's reasonably light, not prone to breaking, and small enough to box up is key. (After all, you don't want to double your gift price with the shipping cost.)
These 13 gifts check the boxes (literally and figuratively). Each one is fun, stylish, or luxe in its own way. Whether you're looking to splurge a little or just send them a small something-something for the holidays, box up these perfect BFF presents and send them on their way. (And while you're at it, maybe snag one for yourself — so you can match, right?)

13. Wistiki Voilà! Smart Tracker

But what makes this tee particularly special is that each is signed by the Known Supply female worker who created it in Lima, Peru. You can even learn more about the woman behind the tee on Known Supply's website.
