The ideal presents for your friends don’t simply bring smiles – they add that extra touch of thoughtfulness that they’ll truly treasure and enjoy! From celebrating new jobs or starting school to birthdays and more, you’re sure to find thoughtful yet memorable presents they will adore and appreciate.

We’ve searched high and low for presents that will speak directly to their interests and make them feel like your truest ally. From foodies and cozies, to book lovers and runners – we have it all here – plus, many can even be personalized so as to impress even the pickiest recipients!

For the foodie or chef in your life, why not surprise them with something from Steele Cutlery like their favorite color knife sharpener, marble coasters or even a stylish cutting board/copper strainer from their kitchen! Additionally, consider offering them an inspiring cookbook or cooking kit so they can try new recipes at home.

No matter their fitness level, book lovers will love this super-soft Mersea sweatshirt from Ecuador made of viscose and bamboo with mini pockets, drop shoulders, three-quarter length sleeves and its tagline “Love the one you’re with”. Comes in multiple colors!

Are you searching for a thoughtful present to show your friend they mean the world? For an extra special gifts this holiday season, why not surprise them with something personalized such as an illustrated map of their new house or monogrammed mug. Or consider giving something practical but tasteful such as travel-friendly vacuum insulated tumbler or personalized photo album. Teenagers would especially be delighted by receiving something viral on TikTok (like this Bella Hadid-approved water bottle) or from Glossier!

For the more adventurous among us, there’s this flower grow kit, which will keep their garden blooming even after their bouquet has faded. Or for something truly memorable and creative there’s also this paint-by-number set featuring their birth month flower printed onto its panels – both make great presents!

Avila talked with several first-time grandparents and selected presents that will truly surprise them, rather than stuff they’ll likely regift or donate later. Here is her list. If all else fails, an e-gift card such as Sephora or restaurant gift cards are always great options; be sure to shop our full collection of the perfect gifts for every type of bestie here.
