7+ Unique Birthday Gift Ideas For Your Girl Best Friend

Unique Birthday Gift Ideas For Your Girl Best Friend

“Hello Canny, yaar Neetu ka birthday hai aur mujhe usko special feel krwaana hai...Kuch gift bata naa...”

“Arey Rajesh, bohot mehenga gift toh tu dene se raha Neetu ko…best hai ki kuch DIY ya homemade gift de de…”

Considering time constraints, I know how difficult it must be for Rajesh to prepare a home made or a DIY gift for her best friend’s birthday. Making someone feel special on a low budget is overwhelming. And not to forget, choosing a gift from a pool of available gifts is quite a task. 

Gifting something new that shows his emotions well and makes his friend truly feel that he cares is something that Rajesh was looking for. And, I know that you are also looking for the same.

Do not worry, we’ve got you covered and have created a list that is going to become your guiding angel in this gifting arena: 

Best Gift Ideas For Best Friend’s Birthday When You’re Low on A Budget 

When you buy a gift for someone, something one of a kind, never seen before, something not sold in stores, it is beautiful. When you put your time, your effort, your talent and love into a gift, it shows. And when you do, you will make someone feel that you care. 

So, a thoughtful birthday gift idea that makes your best friend feel important and also conveys your true emotions is what you should look for.

1. A Flowering Plant 

One can never go wrong with flowers while gifting them to a woman. But, if you are thinking of giving just flowers or maybe a bouquet of flowers, this is where you are wrong, my friend. 

I will improvise on this and encourage you to gift her a flowering plant as it stays for a longer period of time. Plus, it is altogether a different feeling to see a plant grow and then waiting patiently for a bud to bloom into a flower. 

Also, she would remember you every time she sees the plant in her home.

If you are thinking of giving her a soft toy, please stop! This is 2021, you do not gift your girl best friend a soft toy on her birthday. I am sure you are going to get a coffee mug (or wiper blades) on your birthday if you go ahead with this idea. 

Instead, gift her a handmade numun. It is personal, something unique, similar to a soft toy (but not a soft toy) and most importantly, it is heartfelt. 

3. Unique Handmade Birthday Cards- (Best Friend DIY Gift Idea)

Nothing can go wrong with a handmade birthday card. Provided, you know how to make it and you are ready to put in real effort. 

Handmade birthday cards are intimate, personal as well as truly show your love and care towards your best friend. A simple and easy DIY card with a sweet message can do wonders on your best friend’s birthday. 

Confused on how you can start making a DIY card for your best friend, here is the link: 


4. MakeUp Kit - Best Gift Idea for Female Best Friend

Makeup is an art form that represents freedom of expression and individuality instead of being restricted to women. Considering this, if your best friend is a woman who likes to flaunt her beauty at times, a makeup kit can be something that can come of use to her. 

I know, I know, it sounded a little overwhelming to you. Do not worry, my friend, I am there to help you find a makeup kit that is going to be super useful and also will bring a smile to your friend’s face. 

Here it is, Best Make Up Kit At Affordable Price. 

5. Amazon Gift Cards 

Now, that you’ve scrolled this far, I understand nothing has worked for you. (Okay, I would not beat myself for that). 

My final suggestion would be an Amazon Gift Card. See, an amazon gift card gives her the freedom to buy whatever she likes and I guess, at this stage where you are unable to come to a conclusion on what to buy, an Amazon Gift Card comes in as a saviour. Trust me, I have also used this when there was no other option left.

Beautiful Handcrafted Lamps to decorate her room would be a great idea. This will fill her room with picture perfect ambience and also make her remember you whenever she switches it on. 

A lamp in her favorite corner of the room where she usually reads or works is going to add a level of comfort. And, if by chance she doesn’t have a favorite corner, I am sure that a lamp is going to do that for her. 

Personally, I bought a lamp from Woodooz and it made me develop a habit of reading before sleeping.
