Whether you’re single or not this Valentine’s Day, it’s always a good idea to spend the day being grateful for your friends, because we’re guessing you love them too! Plus, ovaries before brovaries. You could even spend the 13th February celebrating Galentine’s Day for your amazing friends, as well as the 14th, as they’ll always be there for you, no matter what.
We’ve found 12 presents to give your besties, this Valentine’s Day, to show them how much you care about them.
1) Bill Murray You’re Awesome Journal
This journal has a different drawing of Bill Murray telling your friend she’s awesome on every page, along with lines for her to jot down all those awesome thoughts. Who wouldn’t want to be told how awesome they are by Bill Murray?
This journal is available from Urban Outfitters for £6.99.[/nextpage]
2) Disaster Designs Havana Hip Flask
Hip flasks are always a winner, being a handy way of sneaking alcohol into festivals, pubs and anywhere else charging extortionate amounts to get drunk. This one is really pretty and we can’t see anyone not being a fan, unless they’ve got a phobia of birds.
This hip flask is available from Campus Gifts for £12.95.[/nextpage] [nextpage title=”Next”]
3) 3 Pack Multi Metallic BFF Ring Necklaces
Yes, it’s still acceptable to buy jewellery from Claire’s and it never won’t be. We love this unique take on ‘Best Friends’ broken heart necklaces. These ones, that look like rings on a necklace, say ‘Best’, ‘Friends’ and ‘Forever’, and are perfect if you can’t decide who to give a necklace to out of two of your friends. We do apologise if you have a third best friend. You’re just too damn popular, and we can’t help you there.
These necklaces are available from Claire’s for £5.[/nextpage] [nextpage title=”Next”]
4) Lindt Lindor Strawberry & Cream
Strawberries & Cream plus Lindt Lindor (the most delicious chocolate of all time)? No, we don’t think it’s going to get better than that. Just don’t give these to your best friend if she’s on a diet!
These Lindor are available from the Lindt website for £3.89.[/nextpage] [nextpage title=”Next”]
5) Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) by Mindy Kaling
We’re pretty much smitten with Mindy Kaling. She gave us back our faith that there are hilarious female comedians out there (and, no, Miranda Hart is not funny AT ALL). Mindy’s autobiography is so relatable and hilarious, and also comes with several conveniently placed stopping points for you to run errands and make phone calls. She’s thought of everything, and your friend will end up loving her too, if she doesn’t already!
The paperback version of this book is available from Amazon for £6.29.[/nextpage] [nextpage title=”Next”]
6) Slim Purse Organiser
Perfect for the friend who carries around huge tote bags wherever she goes; this purse organiser will make sure she’s never rummaging through her bag for her phone ever again. It’s literally got space for everything, and comes in 10 different colours too, so you can match it up with the inside of her bag.
This purse organiser is available from Mochi Things for $37.95 (£24.86).[/nextpage] [nextpage title=”Next”]
7) You Can’t Sit With Us Backpack
This backpack is perfect for any Mean Girls fan, and will definitely bring the schoolgirl out in anyone wearing it.
This Mean Girls-inspired backpack is available from Amazon for £14.99.[/nextpage] [nextpage title=”Next”]
8) Slut’s Mug
We love this hilarious mug so much. We bought it for a friend last year and her flatmates all started using it. If you can’t call your best friend a slut, who can?
This mug is available on Amazon for £7.50.[/nextpage] [nextpage title=”Next”]
9) Marshmallow Vodka
Vodka and marshmallows sounds like the best combo ever to us. What’s great about buying this for your best friend is that you can share it with her – the best kind of present!
The Marshmallow Vodka is available to buy from Firebox for £24.99.[/nextpage] [nextpage title=”Next”]
10) Lush Sugar Sugar
Lush’s gift sets are always so great. Even the packaging alone is enough to make us buy them! This one, Sugar Sugar, comes with the soap shop’s sweetest products, including our favourite shower jelly, Sweetie Pie and one of our favourite soaps, Sultana of Soap, as well as two bath bombs, a bath melt and a shimmer bar, which will make your friend’s skin soft and glittery!
Sugar Sugar is available from Lush for £26.50.[/nextpage] [nextpage title=”Next”]
11) ASOS Don’t Text Your Ex Pyjama Tee & Leggings
You’ll be such a great friend by giving these cute yet advisory pyjamas to your bestie. Think of all those times she’ll stumble in drunk, ready to call the ex, and then look at this top as she’s putting on her PJs. THAT’S true friendship!
These pyjamas are available from ASOS for £24.[/nextpage] [nextpage title=”Next”]
12) Urban Decay Naked2
Every girl’s favourite eyeshadow pallet; your best friend will love you forever for buying this for her. She’ll be doing smokey eyes forever more.
The Naked2 pallet is available from the Urban Decay website for £38.[/nextpage]
