5 Best Gifts for Best Friends: Kids Edition
My youngest daughter Fallon is 6 and has had a best friend since birth. It’s the cutest friendship and funniest story as they were both born on the same day. I'm talking only 2 hours apart. Hadley actually came to visit Fallon in our hospital room, so they are very close. PicturesOnGold is a perfect site to get the best gifts for best friends that can mean a lot to each of you.
The Best Gifts for Best Friends
You can never go wrong with the classic friendship bracelet. You make it with embroidery floss and can do patterns that are simple or complex.
There are tons of ways that you can create a bracelet. As a part of the best gifts for best friends ideas list, this one is probably one of the least expensive. Grab yarn, colored string, or embroidery thread and make a 100% unique bracelet.
If money allows, you can also create them with beads. One of my favorite things is making bracelets with letter beads with the kids. If you want something a bit classier, for a tween or teen, then you can use glass beads. Below are some easy tutorials to follow with video step-by-step directions.
This may be for the older teen or adult. I know I would love it if any of my friends made me a sugar scrub. There are tons of options on the market for inexpensive sugar scrubs. Whether you go to the local dollar store or a specialty store like Lush, you can find something in a scent you know they will love.
Making your own sugar scrubs is a great choice too! There are tons of ideas for sugar scrub recipes out there that take only 2 or 3 ingredients. Add fragrance or essential oils, put in a plastic jar, and you have a great gift!
Open when letters
This is a fantastic BFF DIY gift idea. The premise is that you write something good inside for your friend so that when they are sad, or bored they open that specific one up and it makes them happy and lifts them up. This is great for any age once they are able to write. It's especially fun seeing what young children will write. Years later opening them up can be full of fun memories.
Some ideas of "open when" letters they can create:
- For a special birthday - 13, 15, 16, 18, 21
- After a first date or first kiss
- For when you get engaged
- To read on your wedding day
- For when you find out you are pregnant
- When you graduate from high school or college
- For a tough day - after a loss, anniversary of a loss, or just a bad hair day
You can get a frame at the dollar store, it doesn’t have to be expensive if you don’t want it. Fill it up with all the pics of you and your BFF over the years.
This one is great for those on a budget. You can easily print off images at a local store for under $5. Then go to your local dollar store and pick out frames. If they don't have a collage frame, you can create one by using paper and glue on a board inside a larger frame. Another option is to glue together smaller frames into a design you like.
This one is more expensive, but sites like PicturesOnGold make it very affordable. You can engrave it and they are beautiful. Even better you can have any picture you want on the inside by a laser. This way the photo doesn’t ever fall out.
Photo Engraved Mesh Charmed Bracelets- PicturesOnGold has these awesome bracelets that have charms on them. They adjust to make them small enough so that you can fit them to a child’s wrist. You can do silver, gold, or rose gold and add as many charms as you can fit if you want to.
Everyone loves to feel special. PicturesOnGold helps you give your BFF a gift that reminds them that you think they are special to you. I mean, yes, I know Fallon is only 6 but Hadley is her person. When she saw that bracelet and I asked if she wanted one with her picture on it, she’s the one that came up with the idea of giving one to Hadley. She wanted to share the excitement and joy.
The quality is great, and I was very impressed with how quickly it shipped considering it’s a specialty item and had to be made custom. Overall, we have been very pleased with the bracelet and both the girls love them.Of course, if these bracelets aren’t your style like I mentioned above check out the lockets, or all the other jewelry they have to offer. There is a huge assortment and I’m sure something will catch your eye.
