Birthdays are always so precious. Especially if it’s your best friends birthday, then you know why it’s super important to make it as special as you can for them!
I personally start planning what to get my best friends weeks before their big day, so if you’re looking for some great gifts to give them, you have come to the right place 😉.

Who doesn’t love skincare?! It’s one of the many things we girls love but don’t spend much on so gifting your best friend her favorite skincare products will definitely make her day!
Glossier is winning in all things skincare and it is to die for. This yummy lip balm set only costs $30 which is perfect for three of your best friends! You could get each one of them a $10 lip balm that they’ll absolutely love!

This just makes the perfect birthday gift ideas for best friends! We all already know LED lights are the rage but a personalized moon lamp of your pictures together makes it so much more meaningful!

9. KeyRing Bangle
I think this is something that EVERY girl must have. This keyring bangle makes sure to keep all your important keys secured together so you never have to worry about losing them.
If your best friend is someone who juggles many keys daily, trust me this will be a total lifesaver for her. And the fact that you can customize it with her initials is a plus!

I love this from Etsy because it looks so pretty and you can even customize it with her initials which is awesome!
12. Fluffy Slippers
Fluffy slippers are hands down one of the best inventions everrr! Nothing better than waking up in the morning and putting these bad boys on.
This is the kind of thing you wear once and never want to remove! So when you’re getting one for your best friend, get another one for me as well 😉.
13. Mini Jewelry Organizer
This mini jewelry organizer is adorable. It’s perfect for the best friend who loves to accessorize and has tons of jewelry. It will help keep their go-to ones in a cute box like this.
14. Jade Roller and Gua Sha
Jade Rollers help SO much in the morning. We hate waking up to puffy eyes and cheeks especially when it’s a big day and that’s when these come in handy.
Pair it up with gua sha (which is trending like crazy btw) and you have the perfect birthday gift idea for your best friends!
15. Ari Eau de Parfum
Yeah, a perfume might sound like a basic gift idea for your best friend, but wait until she finds out this is THE Ariana Grande perfume that everyone rages about allll the time! Her perfumes actually have incredibly amazing scents that last all day and are cute looking too!
If your best friend is a major Ari fan (honestly.. who isn’t?!), you’ll be her favorite person with this gift!
16. Cute Face Masks
Who would’ve thought we would be giving face masks as a gift someday? 😂 But for real tho, these face masks are super cute and so much better than the plain ones.
These will match any outfit and are washable which means she can use them again and again! Plus, wouldn’t we do anything to stay in trend while being careful? 😉
