Ideas for Sentimental Gift for Best Friends
A friend in need is a friend indeed. They are not called “siblings that you can choose” for nothing. The feeling of reassurance from having someone as close to you as your own family member, with whom you can share anything without judgment, is simply second to one. They are the ones whom you can depend on when times get rough and when you need someone to talk to. And what better way to honor the long-standing friendship that to make a gift to commemorate the time you’ve shared together?
So, what exactly can you make for your best friends? Well, read on to find out.
collections of photos you’ve taken together
As for the first idea, how about a scrapbook filled to the brim with collections of photos you’ve taken together? If you’re good with your hands and have a good sense of art, you can always try this. All the materials you need are not that difficult to find—if not available already—and all you have to do is to piece them together in a collage. Plus, as a bonus, you can make it thematic; for example, if you and your friend share an interest in comic books, then you can make the scrapbook comic-book-style complete with dialog bubbles, panels, and scribbles. If you think that making scrapbook is a bit too taxing, you can instead opt for a less-taxing photo frame. Simply pick your favorite photo together and put it in a handmade frame or personalized frame.
Moving on to the second idea, personalized jewelry. If both of you are into jewelry, then a couple of similar jewelry bearing each of your initials is not that bad of a gift. Be it earrings, necklaces, pendants, bracelets, anything. Or as an alternative, you can make a couple of personalized phone case that matches. Either way, there are tons of websites that offer specialized jewelry or phone cases, each with its own set of price and range of quality. You just have to be meticulous and thorough in researching which site offers the best service. Review sites would be a good place to start your research.
a coffee maker
As for the third, how about something more practical, like, for instance, a coffee maker? If your friend happens to be a fan of this caffeinated beverage, then a coffee maker from their best friend will be a treasure they’ll cherish forever. As an added bonus, you can throw in their favorite brand of coffee into the mix. And it doesn’t stop there. If your friend prefers tea instead, then you can get them a tea set.
a board game
And lastly, a board game or the like. If both of you are routinely hosting game night every other week or so, then a board game like monopoly in a particular theme is a good addition to make the night livelier. Or a video game, perhaps? Something to be enjoyed together on a weekend is not too shabby if you ask us. And it’s gonna help strengthen your friendship even stronger.
So with that said, hopefully, you are gonna be inspired.
