Buying a gift for your best friend is one of the hardest obstacles of the holidays. You can buy your mom the average candle and she will be happy, and your dad the newest tablet and you’re set. Not to mention after you have purchased items for all of your family members, your wallet probably isn’t going to be very happy. That’s why it’s important to stay within your budget that when shopping for one of the closest people to you because the cost of the item doesn’t matter as much as the thought. That doesn’t mean you can’t buy your best friend something super fun and cute that she will remember forever (and remember why you’re her bestie!)
