There are few emotions more wholesome than the love between two BFFs. Nobody knows your best friend better than you do, which means you should know exactly what to get them for Valentine’s Day. Or maybe you’re completely stumped, which means this guide will come in handy. Whether they’re still talking about The White Lotus or they live for an impromptu picnic, we’ve got you covered—here is something to gift every type of friend.
For the Friend Who Always Hits Snooze
We love the sass that ruffles and fuchsia bring to this eye mask. Designed and sewn in Los Angeles, the silk fabric is made of leftovers from previous seasons. It’s cooling, lightly padded, and has a gentle strap.
For the Friend Who’s the Unofficial Leader of Cookbook Club
A graphic hit is always welcome, especially when it’s from Dusen Dusen. Made of 100% quilted cotton canvas, it’s stuffed with a polyester fill to protect your hands from heat.
For the Friend Who Prefers Their Coffee Sweet
Mini spoons are simply superior. This set of four was designed for Alessi by Miriam Mirri in 2005; they are crafted of 18/10 stainless steel and dishwasher safe.
For the Friend Who’s Constantly Restyling Their Apartment
Confetti glass says “Let’s celebrate our deep and meaningful love.” Gift this little guy with a tiny bouquet and they’ll get the message.
For the Friend Who Normally Buys Their Pajamas From Costco
Your BFF deserves only the best, even when it comes to their sleep attire. If they wouldn’t typically buy fancy pj’s, they’ll appreciate the soft 100% cotton, contrast binding, and cheery pattern even more.
For the Friend Who Loves Twinning With You
If you’re considering buying this retro platter set but don’t need two for yourself, we say keep one and give the other to your BFF. Whether they’re the type who never has enough serveware or is constantly expanding their collection, this glazed earthenware piece made in a 130-year-old Portuguese factory deserves a spot in every hutch.
For the Friend Who Always Answers Your FaceTime With a Mask On
We’ve never met an Osea product we didn’t like. This seaweed-infused detoxifying mask features natural bentonite clay that clarifies normal, combination, and blemish-prone skin.
For the Friend Who’s Still Talking About The White Lotus
Sky-high stems only, please! And how appropriate is the red gift box this set comes in? Made by LSA International, a go-to of ours for quality glassware that’s handmade by artisans.
For the Friend Who Likes to Try Something Before Committing
A candle trio means they can spread them around their home (and decide which one to make their signature scent). The set includes 2.5-ounce versions of Antidris Cassis, No.04 Bois de Balincourt, and No.09 Vallée de Farney fragrances.
For the Friend Who Needs Something Sweet After Dinner
A marbleized box is almost as enticing as the chocolate itself! Five truffles, crafted with Krug champagne and adorned with 24-karat gold leaf, are nestled inside.
For the Friend Who Refers to Themselves as a Crazy Bag Lady
A mini Baggu that will fit a surprising amount of their groceries. The recycled ripstop nylon is strong enough for up to 50 pounds, and it’s machine washable.
For the Friend Who Kisses and Tells
With a gentle exfoliating peel, a hydrating protective oil, and a subtle nude gloss, your friend can conquer the world. The gloss is buildable and adds just the right amount of shine.
For the Friend Who Can’t Get Anything Done Until Their First Sip of Coffee
A funky handle makes this mug stand out in a crowd (just like your BFF). If pink isn’t their thing, it comes in several other similarly muted colors.
For the Friend Who Lives for Impromptu Picnics
Pair this double-duty knife with a bottle of wine and a wedge of Gruyère, and you’ve got yourself an afternoon of quality time together. This Opinel gem folds up neatly to slip into a pocket or bag, and the locking ring keeps the blade safely closed.
For the Friend Who Inspires You to Journal More
On-theme floral motifs make this a no-brainer Valentine’s Day gift for your self-reflective bud. Might we suggest pairing it with a pack of our favorite pens?
For the Friend Whose Nightstand Needs Some Order
Why is thick glass so satisfying? The retro color has a little vintage edge but doesn’t scream “I got this at a thrift store.”
For the Friend Who’s Mastered the Messy Half-Up Hairdo
Why not mix up a typical tortoiseshell with peachy pink? Made from Italian acetate, this clip will hold up fine hair without tugging or damaging it.
For the Friend Whose Happy Place Is a Fancy Hotel
Getting out of the shower just became a spalike experience. Available in four sizes, these terry slips are made from 100% Turkish cotton.
