As much as we like being all dolled up, deciding a not-too-generic gift has become next to impossible. Today at SHE, we’ve come up with gifts that your BFF will love!
Whatever the event be, cash is always welcome, infact, more than welcome. Instead of giving a gift that she’ll hardly use, give her cash and see her buy her favorite things and flaunting them.
WHAT SHE ACTUALLY WANTS
I mean, is she really your BFF if she doesn’t forcefully demand what she wants from you? Pick an item she’s most excited for and tell her you’ve got this!
Shadi is that one time where you get all the gold you can possibly get in one go. But the problem is that all of it mostly confined to really heavy sets that cannot be worn on the regular. But who doesn’t love a daily wear gold or diamond item? Something like a small pendant, nose pin or studs will fulfill your BFF’s daily dose of bling while being minimal and easy on the eyes.
PREPAID TRAVEL CREDIT CARDS
Imagine going on a vacation and having your credit card frozen for suspicious activity, what a bummer! Save your friend the hassle and pop a couple of prepaid travel credit cards in her bag for emergencies (or a splurge!) She’ll be eternally grateful for the thoughtfulness.
So many brands these days offer gift cards, from clothing to groceries. Get your BFF some gift cards to her favorite shops and watch her redeem them in joy! And the best part is that she can use them whenever she wants, before marriage or after marriage, or even months after her marriage.
HIGHLY PERSONALIZED DIY PROJECT
Ahan ahan, this is where all the nostalgia kicks in. Be creative and enjoy the ‘feels trip’ with your bff as you go through it. A collage, a memory box, an adventure book… the possibilities are endless when it comes to DIY projects!
Get your bff and her guy an online subscription like Netflix and see them bond over and even fight over (oops, we don’t blame them) their favorite series, plus your bff could use a little binge watching when she’s bored and home alone.
Everyone resorts to things like dinner sets and crockery when looking for gifts. By the end of it your bff will have more than enough crockery and she’d hate having more of it. Opt for home accents and statements pieces to add to her new home. How about these geode book ends? Or lamps, lots of lamps!
We’re so busy shopping for wedding day itself till the last minute that we completely forget about shopping for vacations. While your bff may have the basic necessities to travel with, passport holders, tags, fanny packs and a few more travel essentials never hurt anyone!
POST WEDDING PHOTO SHOOT
Normally in our country, the importance is only given to the shadi photoshoots and that’s it. How about getting your friend a post-wedding photoshoot for some really cute pictures that they’ll cherish all their life! We all need some cute casual photos, no?
With continuous days of wearing heavy makeup at the events and to the daawats come clogged pores. Make sure to step up your bff’s skincare game to calm, treat and soothe her skin.
