17 Creative Gift Ideas For Your Best Friend That Show How Much You Love Them

Do you still have your half of the BFF heart necklace from way back when? Whether it's lost in your jewelry box or secured around your neck, it might be time for a gift upgrade for your best friend. There are creative best friend gifts you can give your other half for 2017's holiday season that'll be a new way to say "you matter so much to me."

The beauty of the holidays is getting to express how much the people in your life mean to you. That can be through lengthy handwritten letters, material goods, or best friend adventure coupon books. In whichever form you choose to spoil your bestie with the gifts s/he deserves, your creativity will stand out. Which is obviously why you two are best friends in the first place, right?

Your best friend is one of the only people who totally gets you and is absent of any judgments. They're your keep safe, your vault, your therapist, personal Postmates delivery person when you can't peel yourself from your bed, and so much more. The job description of a best friend is ever evolving. Obviously they're high up on your list of people to shower with gifts so creative they'll never forget ... or lose in the jewelry box.
