Spoil The Best Friend: 8 Gift Tips For Your Favourite Girl


You love her to death, she knows your deepest, darkest secrets, you know each other inside-out and you have more fun with her than anyone else in the whole wide world, but now her birthday is coming up and you have absolutely no idea what to give her.

We have all been there, you already gave her gift cards, she doesn’t need any more jewelry and she already has enough bath sets for the next 3 years.

What to give your best friend for her birthday? CGD gives you 8 tips for spoiling your dearest friend in the world:

#1 – Day-out: Wellness day

Spoil her with a spa day-out! Who doesn’t love to go to a wellness, get a good massage, facial and relaxing in the sauna. Most wellnesses do lunches and dinners as well, which will be the perfect ending of a fun and relaxed girls day-out.

#2 – Day-out: Theme park

A fun day out for daredevils. Theme parks are always fun, especially in the Spring/Summer. Go with your friend group and treat the birthday girl with little gifts during the day.

#3 – Day out: Shopping

Girls love shopping! There is almost no girl in the world that wouldn’t be happy with a shopping day. Give her an allowance or spice the day up with a fancy lunch or dinner.

#4 – Night-out: musical or concert

Her favorite artist or musical. Especially when you go to a concert you can have a little pre-party, get ready together, have some wine and practice your singing skills for that night.

#5 – X presents for X years

She becomes 24, buy her 24 gifts. It doesn’t need to be 24 big gifts, you can make it as big or small as you want, be original.

#6 – Picture on canvas

Always nice to have a good picture that she can hang in her bed- or living room. A picture of the two of you at your favorite day out with her on canvas.

#7 – Memory book

A big throw-back book, with little stories and pictures of your greatest memories of her. Fun for now and even more fun to look back in this book in 5+ years time.

#8 – Photo shoot 

A photo shoot with your best friend will always be a fun day out and there is always a reason to shoot your new Facebook profile picture. Everyone knows an aspiring photographer, so it doesn’t even have to be that expensive.
