Whether it’s a birthday, a holiday, a special occasion or you just want to show how much you appreciate them, finding the perfect gift for your friend isn’t always easy!

There’s a lot to take on board here, from what might fit in their home, to what will suit their individual taste, what might complement their look, or whether or not they already have something you’ve got your eye on. Often, buying gifts for the people we love the most is incredibly difficult – but, if your friend has been there for you through thick and thin, through ups and downs, breakups and happier times, through bad hair decisions and good – it’s always worth putting in a little extra effort to show your appreciation.

In this post, we’ll explore 4 gorgeous gifts that any friend will cherish.

A Framed Photo

What could be better than gifting them a wonderful moment from your friendship and giving them the opportunity to display it at home? When you print and frame photos online, you can preserve those happy moments together, whether you’re sharing a picture of you both at a wedding, on a night out, a holiday, or even something from your school days, sharing the gift of your friendship is something your recipient will happily cherish.

You could even gift them a collection of printed photos, and they could make a collage or gallery wall with them. By choosing to order these online, you’ll be able to purchase the print and the frame together, making it easier to select the colour scheme and get the frame size right, the first time.  

Delicate Friendship Jewellery

Remember those friendship bracelets and necklaces we used to wear as kids? Well, now you’re both grown up, why not get an adult version? Choosing matching necklaces or delicate bracelets to wear in unison is a simple, but a heartfelt gift that holds special meaning to both of you. Whether it’s something to wear for every day, or just for special occasions, gifting your friend some delicate friendship jewellery is a wonderful idea.

A Houseplant

Whether they’ve just moved house, or you want to get them something that will last a little longer than a bouquet, gifting your friend a houseplant ticks all the boxes. It’s a simple gift, but one they can enjoy potentially for years to come. Conduct a little research into which plants might be best suited to your friend. You can even find houseplants that don’t die easily – a perfect solution for friends who aren’t particularly green-fingered.

A Letter Set

There’s something charming and deeply personal about sending a letter. You can express yourself more and share thoughts and feelings better than via IM. Gifting your friend a letter set, so you can write to each other with beautifully decorated letterheads and envelopes is the gift that keeps on giving. Not only will you both have something to look forward to in the mail each month, but they’re letters you can keep and cherish for a lifetime.

Feeling inspired? These gifts will certainly raise a smile!
