Friends are often your chosen, family. If you are looking for a Christmas or birthday gift for your best friend or a creative gift for any of your female friends this is the place to find unique touching gift ideas.
Two of my favorite gifts I’ve gotten from friends are earrings and Christmas ornaments. I like these because I think of the friends who gave me earrings whenever I wear them and most of my Christmas ornaments have special stories behind them, which is part of the fun of decorating our Christmas tree.

Christmas ornaments are a fun friend gift for Christmas or her birthday. She will think of you every year when she decorates the tree. You can make it extra special by choosing an ornament that is a symbol of something you did together that year or activity you share.
Another option is to get an ornament that reminds her of something significant that happened during the previous year. This year a Ruth Bader Ginsberg ornament is a great option.

Creative Gift Ideas for Friends Birthday Gifts
If you are a crafty person try making a gift for your friend. I’ve put together a list of 31 crafts to make for gifts here.
Even if you are not very crafty there are some things you can make. Candles are one of my favorite gifts to make for a non-crafty person. Try making something for her birthday. Start with old glassware that you can pick up for pennies at a thrift store it makes great holders for melted wax. You can get wax and wicks here.
All you need to do is melt the wax, add some scent or colored wax if you want to, wrap the wick around a pen or pencil to keep it in place, and pour in the melted wax.
Christmas ornaments are also a good option if you want to make something yourself. If you are a sewer this book has several ideas. These are cute and look very doable even for the creatively challenged folks like me.
