Whether it's calling them up at 3 am to talk about our (lousy, almost non-existent) love life or celebrating just about anything with them, BFFs are Godsent and there are no two ways about them. This is why it's always good to gift a little something to your bestie every now and then. I mean, what's more precious than seeing a smile on their faces anyway? Besides, you don't need a reason to surprise her. We've curated a unique set of things that you can gift your soul sisters. So look no further, and read on.
Keep It Unique: 8 Gifts For Every Kind Of BFF
For The Fashionista: Wooden Clutch
These kinds of BFFs already have a closet full of bags. So, what's different about this one? It's made of wood. Artklim is all about artsy prints and quirky patterned clutches. And this Rose Printed Clutch has a fine wooden frame bordering an elegant piece of floral fabric. It surely does make a great gift because every time they use it (which will be quite often), they'll remember you.

For The Stationery Lover: Hand-Illustrated Notebooks
Want to gift something memorable to your friend? Chaos Doodles has handcrafted serving trays, coasters, bookmarks, illustrated notebooks and more for you.
