Hey! While we’re doing our best to make sure the products we feature will arrive in time for Christmas, shipping times are especially tricky this year and can vary depending on where you live, which product you purchase, and more. Shop early and be sure to double check the retailers’ websites for shipping information to ensure that your gift will arrive in time for the 25th!
A “Why I Miss You” journal to give your best friend who insisted on moving to the other side of the country — they’re gonna need a handwritten reminder that you miss staying in and catching up over red wine and ice cream.
A keychain they can carry around that accurately acknowledges the distance that ~separates~ you and the feeling it elicits. Because if you don’t laugh about it, you’ll cry!
A set of two friendship lamps to let your bestie know how much they ~light up your life~.
With a simple tap (and a Wi-Fi connection), these techy gadgets let your friend know that you’re thinking of them — the connected counterpart will instantly illuminate, no matter how far away you are!
Or a set of hi-tech Bluetooth bracelets that work in a similar way and throw the (boring) concept of traditional friendship bracelets out the window. They even vibrate and light up with different colors so you can create codes and send buzzes that have different meanings.
A journal and pen set because *checks calendar* it’s still 2020 and they might need a daily affirmation to remind them they can get through the day, no matter what’s going on in the world.
A pack of colorful 0.38-mm-point gel pens for the friend who’s totally crazy about kawaii and SmOoTh penmanship. (And so they can start sending you beautiful handwritten letters, because texting can be so impersonal sometimes!)
A necklace that literally signifies the Venn Diagram that is your unique relationship. Because no one understands you two, like you do.
A coconut lip scrub to transport them to their dream beach vacay where piña coladas are being served up all day. Travel and accommodations are not guaranteed with the purchase of this scrub, but buttery soft lips sure are!
A custom map which symbolically depicts that your relationship knows no bounds (even though there might be some physical ones between you).
A jar of capsule messages because this isn’t 1999 and you’re not Kevin Costner (cc: the film Message in a Bottle), so you’d rather send them a bunch of personal sentiments in outrageously cute tiny caps instead.
A complete pack of skincare masks because you can’t remember the last time you had a spa day together. Perhaps you can send this to your best friend along with a note that reads: Virtual pampering session?
A heartfelt risograph to act as a reminder that even if you can’t text them that day, they’re never far from your mind.
An ~unbearably~ cozy teddy jacket so you can send them something that feels like a warm and cozy hug in the absence of, well, a warm and cozy hug.
A state map pendant necklace to represent that home is where your heart and your house is – because it’s where they’ve spent the last three holidays instead of spending it with their own family.
A collection of “Letters To Open When…” filled with 12 prompts, so you can be there in spirit even when you can’t actually be there to give your BFF a pep talk or reminder of how much you cherish their friendship.
A soy candle to take the place of (or in accompaniment with) the text message you send to one another on the reg. This even comes in festive-friendly scents, think: sugar cookies and mocha mint.
A care package to show your friendship is strong enough to withstand the test of distance and time — even if their ability to keep that gifted succulent alive isn’t.
A fan-favorite Carhartt hat so you can get matching beanies for the season and coordinate your winterwear even though you’re thousands of miles apart.
A Tile tracker that’ll give the gift of finding lost items — because you can’t always be there to remind them where their phone, keys, and wallet are.
A pair of socks that they can wear as a warning to others while they’re binge-watching their favorite show with you over Zoom (as you simultaneously provide live commentary).
A gorgeous print titled “Long Distance” so they always know no matter what, you’re only just a phone call away.
A personalized 200+ piece jigsaw puzzle since they’re probably going to be spending the better part of the winter inside. This picture perfect activity will allow them to reminisce on the days when you were both living your best dang life.
A trinket dish for someone who needs a reminder that your BFF bond is unwavering. Because no matter how many months go by, you’ll never forget their fave foods or pet peeves (like *checks phone* when you leave them unread).
A wall print that perfectly encapsulates their personality, because even though they’re far away, they know you know this rule still *absolutely* stands.
An enchanting set of fairy lights with photo clips so they can add some sparkle to their new bedroom and be reminded of all your happy memories together.
