Celebrate International Friendship Day this month with a thoughtful gift for your best friend. We’ve put together some cool DIY gifts for friends that you can make to show your appreciation to your BFFs. Whether it’s for their birthday or just because, give your friends a little love with a special DIY gift – check out our ideas below.
Make a Care Package
This is a good option if you want to send a few things. You can find ready-made care packages online, which is a good option if you’re pushed for time or can’t get out to the shops.
If you do have time, making your own care package is a cheaper option, and lets you really personalise it with all the things your best friend loves!
Add their favourite cookies, bake brownies, bubble bath, scented candles, tea, chocolate, a good book…there’s a lot of things you can get your hands on easily to create a thoughtful gift. To make it extra special, add some photos and a hand-written note.
Coffee Morning in a Mug
Fill a mug with a little kit for their hot drink of choice. Add tea bags, hot chocolate sachets or instant coffee sachets to some little biscuits and chocolates. Pop the goodies inside the mug for a thoughtful and easy gift for friends.
For extra points, make a personalised mug from Printerpix! Personalise it with photos of the two of you together to create a truly special DIY gift.
Make a Photo Book
Send your bestie a photobook full of your happy memories together. This is sure to put a smile on their face and is the perfect gift to celebrate your years of friendship.
Fill up to 100 pages with your special photos and personalise it as much or as little as you like!
Flowers are a classic choice, and an easy gift to send if you’re near or apart. Many florists offer doorstep delivery, which means you can give your friends a floral surprise, even if you live far away.
If you live close by, you can pop by to deliver the flowers yourself.
If plants are more your thing, you could also send a houseplant. A cactus or succulent will travel well – just mind the prickly bits!
You can’t go wrong with a personalised card. Perfect for any occasion, this is the ultimate way to send a personal message of love.
Customise a card with your photos or choose from 100s of pre-set templates. Add a heartfelt message inside and send it to your BFF.
So, what are you waiting for…get gifting!
