Sometimes your best friend is the easiest person to buy for, and sometimes they are the hardest. Being the one person you know better than almost anyone else can be a blessing and a curse.
On the one hand, you know them better than they know themselves sometimes, so picking something they would love should be a piece of cake. On the other hand, you have surely been the person they ranted to about shitty gifts in the past, so you don’t want to be the person to incite that wrath. Below are some things that should have far-reaching, yet affordable appeal.
Simple enough for those who don’t wear much jewelry, but unique enough for those that love it. These would look great with jeans and a sweater or a cute little dress. How very multipurpose!
Allegedly there comes a time when we are supposed to become adults and stop wearing hoodies. I think that is some utter bullshit because hoodies are amazing and you will pry mine off my cold dead body. This one, however, is fashionable and functional, a more grown-up type sweatshirt.
The first thing I do when I come home is strip off my bra and pants as quickly as possible. I don’t know if my husband realizes I actually dress pretty cute for work since he is asleep when I leave and I strip down and put on PJ’s before I even go find him to say hello. It is straight into comfy mode for me, and a good hoodie is required. One that professes a hatred of pants? Perfection.
I know there are problems with the word “bitch.” I don’t personally mind it as a rule, but I understand those who do. This tank, however, can appeal to both sides. There have been plenty of times in my life when someone has defaulted to calling me a bitch in an attempt to belittle me or my point. The reason I didn’t particularly mind is, like the shirt says, I was still right. And they can suck it.
I am unashamed of my love of coloring. It relaxes me and I enjoy it. There is an old school Tom Selleck page in this one that I am in desperate need of. And Joseph Gordon-Levitt is tasty.
There is a ring on Etsy that I really want that says “Fuck You,” but I can’t justify the cost when it isn’t really appropriate to wear that often. This ring, on the other hand, would allow one to express a similar sentiment without the actual profanity. Love.
I typically fall in the “leggings are not pants” group, but these are so cute they might make me change my mind on very rare occasions. This site has a ton of different options for keeping your legs toasty.
When I have days like this, I need my bestie, and vice versa. She’s the only one who knows exactly how to make it better. This print would be a cute reminder that no matter how shitty things are, you are always there.
I have been best friends with my little D for 22 years (that’s since junior high). She is my best fucking friend. She has been through the shit and the wonder with me, and I couldn’t have asked for a better partner in crime. Are we a bit too old for BFF necklaces? I can honestly say I do not give one teeny, tiny fuck. I’m getting this for her.
Do you and your best friend exchange gifts? Are you close together or far apart (Mine moved to NYC a few months ago and I miss the shit out of her)?
