Delightful DIY Gift Ideas for Your Best Friend

3 min read

A best friend is a person who means the world to you. Sometimes, you want to give them something special, and what is more special than a handmade gift from the heart?

One of my best friends is having her birthday in a few days and I am wanting to come up with something special and memorable for her.

As I work on her gift I am using the internet to help me come up with ideas. I thought I would share with you all of my best finds.

1. Friends Picture Collage

Picture uploaded on Pinterest by Chelsea Bell

I’m digging this picture frame and think it would be such a fun way to memorialize a friendship or relationship that has blossomed through the years.

2. Chill Pills

Original idea found on Scripture Gift’s Etsy Site

This idea would be cute to give to a friend who works in the office with you and understands the stress level of your work environment.

It would also be good for a friend whom you know has a stressful job, even if you can’t empathize with them.

3. Matchbox Camera

This is such a fun idea! Simply color a matchbox black, add the white parts and fill the inside with prompt cards for taking photographs.

4. Remind Them Why

This is a great thing to do for the friend that gets stressed out super easy.

I did something similar when I was in eighth grade. I bought a notebook and had my mother’s friends write a letter telling her what she meant to them.

Sometimes it’s the reminder that you mean something that makes the biggest impression!

5. Study Care Package

The story along with the picture: Fatima‘s sister graduated from law school and she made this kit to help her prepare for the bar.

My best friend is a teacher and we need many of the same things! This would be a great care package to liven up a best friend, or sister’s, day!

6. Keep a Notebook

One of my best friends and I did this when we were in high school. I gave the book to her but remember we wrote in it back and forth all the time. We talked about boys mostly – at the time it was this cute boy from work. Now cute boy from work is my husband.

7. Remember When…

‘Open when’ letters are nice to have around when you know your best friend could be going through some heavy emotions. It could work especially well when you move away from them, temporarily or permanently.  Just a nice reminder that somebody cares, like much of these other items.

8. Smile

The perfect gift to put at a place of employment or beside your friend’s bed. It’s short and sweet – plus it reminds them that they are stuck with you!

9. Cozy

Have a friend that loves coffee? Check out how to make these cute animal cozies. It will be loved by everyone!

Even better is that once you master these sweet animals you can make some a little different each time.

10. Coconut Oil Bath Melts

We all need to get clean and being able to do so with good smelling soap is very nice. Knowing that someone made that soap with you in mind makes it that much sweeter.

If you have a friend who likes the smell of citus, this coconut oil bath melt would be perfect for them to wind down after a long day.
