Pouring your whole heart into a super cute scrapbook filled with pics with your bestie? Nothing gets more wholesome than that! Your BFF's heart will absolutely *melt* when you give them a book filled with every random thing that reminds you of them pasted into the pages (think: literally everything from polaroids to the ticket to the show you saw with them).


Putting the work and effort into a pretty embroidered masterpiece will show them how much you care about them. Plus, it'll double as new room decor that'll put an instant smile on their face.


Scrunchies are easier to make than you may think. Follow along with this how-to vid and you'll find yourself with gorgeous scrunchies that your bestie will *love*—because after all, who doesn't heart scrunchies?

A sunshine box is pretty much just a box (you can reuse an old shoebox) filled with all of the things that will bring light into their life. Add all of their fave things, a wholesome note and voila! You'll have yourself a super Insta-worthy (it's sooo going on their Insta story) prezzie that'll show your BFF how much you love them.
