9. Matt & Nat vegan leather backpack

Here in Canada, you’d be hard-pressed to find a girl without a Matt & Nat bag. That’s how trendy these are!

The Brave backpack and the mini version are the most popular styles, but there’s a bunch of other backpacks, purses, and duffels to choose from in a variety of beautiful colors!

10. Colourpop palette

Colourpop palettes are affordable, have an incredible color payoff, and come in the CUTEST packaging ever!

They have done a bunch of collabs, so you’re bound to find a palette that matches your best friends’ tastes.

I got my best friend the Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon palette because we were OBSESSED with the show as kids (and the holographic packaging was honestly the coolest thing I’ve ever seen!)

Give your best friends the gift of great-sounding music!

They can use them when they’re commuting, running, working, studying or just chilling.

16. Yeti travel mug

Whether your best friend is a coffee or tea drinker (or they can put wine in it I’m not judging!) – this Yeti travel mug is unmatched in terms of quality and keeping their drink’s temperature.

I have the teal one above, but it also comes in so many more cute colours!

17. Revlon hair dryer brush

If the Dyson hair dryer or Dyson airwrap styler are out of your price range, this Revlon hair dryer brush is an amazing and more affordable alternative.

18. The quick flick – eyeliner stamp

Do your best friends spend forever trying to get the perfect winged liner?

Give them the gift of time by expediting that process with this easy and amazing eyeliner stamp!

19. Raybans

Arguably the best and trendiest sunglasses on the market!

The Erika Rayban sunglasses are by far the most popular, but there are so many other styles and colors to choose from.

20. Funko! pops

There are an endless amount of Funko pops that exist!

If one of the above isn’t a winner (which I mean how can they not be they’re so cute!), then search Funko pop + something your best friend loves on Amazon and you’re sure to find the perfect gift!

21. Lululemon aligns

If I could only pick one item to wear for the rest of my life from Lululemon, it would be the Align Pant!

The softness, quality and the way it makes your butt look AMAZING is unmatched in any other legging out there.

They come in dozens of core and seasonal colors and are available in 17″, 21″, 23″, 25″, 28″, & 31″ lengths.

The Align joggers are also amazing as gifts for best friends!

22. Home manicure set

Does your best friend love gel nails?

What about nail extensions?

How about just a traditional nail polish set?

Whatever their preference, the sets above are the highest rated in each category and they’re sure to be stoked to receive them!

23. Apple Watch

Another product that needs no introduction.

Seriously, every person I know that has an Apple watch loves it, so I’m sure your best friends will too!

24. Colouring book & prismacolour pencils

The Secret Garden adult coloring book and these prismacolor pencils rock!

Both my mom and I have them and it’s so relaxing to color in all these beautiful pages.

25. Nespresso coffee machine

Who doesn’t love coffee!?

Give your best friends the gift of AMAZING coffee every morning!

The Nespresso my boyfriend has (first pic) is great for limited counter space and uses the original Nespresso pods.

The Nespresso I have (second pic) is slightly larger, has a bit more water and capsule ejection storage capacity, and uses the newer Vertuo capsules.

Both machines are available as a set with an aeroccino (which is just Nespresso’s fancy term for a milk frothier).

I’d recommend going with the set since that’ll allow your best friends to make cappuccinos and lattes with the aeroccino.

It’s also cheaper as a bundle than buying each component separately.

26. The five minute journal

I got this journal for my mom for her birthday and she has said nothing but amazing things about it!

It has awesome reviews on Amazon and will help guide your best friends through personal journaling every day.

27. Initials necklace

This initials necklace is a phenomenal personalized gift for best friends!

It’s also an affordable dupe to the very popular (but very expensive) Bracha necklace.

28. Cute PJ set

Seriously though, how cute and comfy do these PJ sets look!?

29. Silk eye mask

Give the gift of a luxurious night’s sleep with this trending pure silk sleep mask.

30. Amazing smelling candles

This candle set is super highly rated on Amazon, comes in beautiful reusable tins and is all ready for gifting (comes with a box and card).

Choose from any state in these homesick candles that embody the scents of home.

If your best friend has moved away, bring them a little piece of home no matter where they are now.

These Voluspa candles are the fanciest candles of the bunch, but are well worth it.

The quality, selection of scents, and beautiful design make this my go-to for my best friends (and myself lol).

31. Tall Hunter boots

Practical and stylish!

These tall Hunter boots are super popular and come in so many colours!

32. Punny mugs

Get one of the mugs above if you think your best friends will love them or browse Amazon for more punny mug options!

33. Fuzzy sweater

Cute and cuddly – these sweaters are my go-to gifts for best friends!

34. Sweet framed picture

You can never go wrong with a cute picture and a sweet frame!

35. Popular book

Grab a popular novel (like Becoming by Michelle Obama) or a poetry book (like the sun and her flowers by Rupi Kaur) for your best friends to enjoy when they’re traveling or relaxing.

36. Cozy winter hat

A warm and trendy winter hat (or as us Canadians like to call it – a toque) is a great gift that your best friends will appreciate every cold day of the year.

37. Lip smackers lip balm set

Lip smackers were the coolest lip balms back when I was a kid!

They would be fun throwback gifts for best friends who would also get nostalgic about them.
