5 Gifts That Are Better Than Gift Cards

We all know the struggle of asking a person what they want as a gift, and their response is “I don’t know.” While you’re thinking, “Gosh! just give me an idea, so I don’t have to spend hours of my time trying to figure out what to get you.” In the end, we all result to gift cards. Unless you’re part of the special few that are great at picking out gifts. Yes, gift cards are the easy way out. In the “here’s money, so go buy your own stuff” kinda way. Since you’re here, I assume that you are willing to put in the time and effort to find a great gift for your friend. Well, you’ve come to the right place. 🙂

One of the greatest gifts that you can get your friend, BLANKETS. But wait…. it gets better… FUZZY BLANKETS! What’s better than giving them the gift of being wrapped like a burrito on a cold night?

That’s what I thought. Find a super cozy blanket <- Here 🙂


Why You’re My Bestie Booklet

If you’re willing to spend some extra time to be super thoughtful, this gift idea is for you. Fill this little booklet with sweet messages to your friend. Including, “I am completely jealous of your…” or “My favorite thing about you is…!” This is a super creative way to show your friend how much they mean to you.

Do you have tons of photos of you and your friend? Combine them all into a collage or booklet to remind your friend of all your memories. This is another truly personal and personalized gift. You can print the pictures yourself or you can order them. Walgreens sells little booklets, posters, collages, and more. I recently ordered a booklet from there for my best friend and she loved it. Don’t forget to include some embarrassing pictures that you can laugh about later in life. 😉

No matter if your friend has a green thumb or if they are a plant killer, these are the cutest gifts. They don’t need tons of water, so it is much easier to keep them alive. Perfect for friends that are all about the “aesthetic.” You can even place these little plants into cute vases. Some can come in shapes of animals or have quotes on them. Just be careful with packaging because you don’t want dirt everywhere. 😉


Cute Water Bottles


Last, but not least… water bottles with unique designs are a great gift. Your friend could love having a water bottle that no one else has. This is also great for someone who is an avid water drinker or someone who constantly forgets their water bottle at home. There are so many patterns, choices, and brands to chose from.

Thank you so much for reading. I hope you have a fantastic day. Until the next post…
