The only thing I love more than receiving gifts is giving them. Seriously, it’s the best feeling when you can make someone you love happy. And, since it’s the most wonderful time of year, we’ve rounded up the best DIY gifts that your best friend will actually want. Even better, you can whip them up fairly quickly, without breaking the bank.
Everyone loves some fun room decor! Spell out your bestie’s name, her initials, or Greek letters with these fun pom poms.
Print your best friend’s favorite inspirational quote or celeb on a candle that she can burn, baby, burn! You can really put anything you want on these adorable candles.
Making these cards will take you back to your kindergarten days! Use a white crayon and then watercolor over it to reveal your ~*hidden*~ message.
Use a photo of you and your BFF for each month and pencil in girls’ nights, your friendaversary, and other important dates. Feel free to also write messages of encouragement and love throughout.
Each of these balloons is attached to a photo. Just write a memory or affirmation on the back of the photos and surprise your bestie.
Fill out little notes full of loving affirmations, funny drawings, or inside jokes — anything that would make your friend happy!
We love this card deck! You could also do “52 Times You Made Me Laugh” or “52 Inside Jokes.”
Mod Podge some photos onto a letter (the first letter of your friend’s name) and write a letter to her on the back.
Make a bestie bucket list for your summer together, an upcoming vacation, or your remaining time in college. So many possibilities!
Enjoy creating and crafting for your best friend. They will love the gifts and the effort you put into them.
