She has been there for you through the toughest of times. She’s laughed with you, cried with you and will straight up tell you when you’re dressed like an idiot. A best friend is the equivalent of a female soulmate.
Here Are The Best 30th Birthday Gifts for Best Friend:
Buying presents for normal people is easy, and you basically just give them whatever you would want for yourself, but your BFF is a little different situation altogether. Sure you can go the route of the cliché lockets and the gift cards that totally lack personal effort, but we’ve all been there and done that, and to be honest, your best friend deserves a little more.
What about beauty products?
Makeup products are always a great gift to give to female friends because they add that sense of luxury and really do feel like a treat. Obviously because you know your best friend on such a personal level, you’ll know all about her makeup preferences and should be able to easily get her something that her heart fancies.
Makeup can be a little tricky though, so always make sure that you know enough about her skin tone and the products that she likes to use before you head down this route.
What beauty products you should be AVOIDING:
Giving some sort of hair-care product as a gift insinuates that you think her hair is a mess, while creams tend to indicate that you think their skin looks dull and lifeless and perfume, well, if it isn’t obvious, this indicated that you might have a problem with the way they smell, perfume is also way too personal to be given as a birthday gift. These gifts are always better to leave to the birthday girl to buy for herself.
And those bath products?
Bath products are kind of a touch and go area, but for the most part tend to be great gifting ideas. Just don’t go for the cheap versions which have 10 items inside that all lose their smell once you open them up. Go for something a little luxurious, something she’ll reach for the next time she has to nurse a hangover or just needs to take some time out from the rest of the world.
Body Polishes are very luxurious and opting for rich body butters and even scrubs is always a good idea. Luxurious and nourishing bath oil is another bath product that will go down great. Just a little pointer though, if you’re giving a bath product to your BFF on her birthday, just make sure that you double it up with some other bath goodies or another great gift. A bottle of bubble bath is hardly going to do the trick here.
Whatever gift you do decide to get her, remember that it’s still the thought that counts. Make an effort, call her, take her out for cake and celebrate the big 30 in style. Help her make this one count and see that life only begins at 30.
For some great gifting options, try getting your BFF one of these recommended items for her big 30!
