5 perfect (and useful) gifts for your best friend

Your best friend deserves a unique gift that they can make good use of. Use our list of gift ideas to find the perfect, unique and affordable gift.

Woman Giving Friend with Her Eyes Closed A Present

Best friends make the world a brighter place. Whether you've known each other since kindergarten, or met a few months ago, this is a bond like no other. But when it feels like you've known someone forever sometimes surprising them is the hardest thing to do.

When you've shared so much with your best friend, regular presents just don't feel good enough anymore. How could you express all the love and gratitude you have for this person with a simple mug or a vase?

Without degrading regular, much-loved presents like customised mugs, and hand-painted vases, we have prepared a list of thoughtful and unusual gifts, guaranteed to surprise and delight your best friend.

Our best ideas for a best friend's gift include:

Ancestry DNA test kit.

For the lover of history and curious facts, a DNA test can help them discover their roots, and learn more about their distant origins.

A little holiday for two.

Holidays and city breaks are not just for couples. Hire a hotel room for a day break, have candlelight dinner and balcony breakfast, and enjoy a little pampering with your BFF.

A SPA basket.

If paying for a holiday is a little off-budget, or you don't have the time to organise it, why not bring the holiday mood home? After a long day at work your best friend will love a muscle soak, hydrating mask and some relaxing scents. All in the comfort of their own home (and bathtub).

Care Club for their house

If your friend just moved into a new house, you can be sure that even Ebenezer Scrooge will be jealous of their budgeting skills. This is the worst time for unexpected breakdowns, yet most of the breakdowns happen in the first year of owning a property. Why not help your friend keep their peace of mind, and buy them a Care Club home maintenance cover for their house?


Admit it, not many of us have the time and patience to take care of plants. If your friend loves plants but lacks time, succulents are the perfect gift. They are easy to take care of, and will bring the pop of green, and the nature feel your interior is lacking.
