Holiday Gift Guide for Your Best Friend, the One You’d Drop Everything For, and the Family You Choose

Your best friend, the one you’d drop everything for, the family you choose – shall I go on? You know this person better than anyone, yet they might be the hardest to shop for. We’ve rounded up a handful of ideas to make them smile, whether it’s a need, something fun, or from the heart.

We’ve worked to ensure that these lists include items from women, Black and Asian owned businesses, independent makers, and a range of price points. Over the next several weeks, we’ll pop into Stories @yellowbrickhome to share deals, gift requests and more!

Gifts for Your BFF

1. Heavyweight Shacket, $98

This makes the list every year, because it’s that good. Scott has one in at least 5 colors, but I’m not sure who wears it more – me, or him? It’s heavyweight but not overwhelming, and it looks cool and casual when paired with your favorite vintage tee.

2. Mini Hoop Earrings, $45

These thick huggies are a boost to the ones they wear everyday, and because they’re gold vermeil, they’ll get the look and quality of gold at a great price.

3. Whiskey Making Kit, $42

They boast about their ability to make the perfect cocktail, so give them a gift that indulges their newfound hobby! Every purchase from this family-owned brand supports multiple small businesses in the United States.

4. Hinoki Fantôme Candle, $38

If the label looks familiar to you, it’s probably because I can’t stop talking about Boy Smells. After my best friend picked up the perfume last year, I became addicted to the unique, upscale scents I haven’t found anywhere else! These candles have a strong scent throw, filling the whole room with awesome fragrance.

5. Apple Watch Band, $18

They don’t leave the house without their Apple Watch (heck, they don’t ever actually take it off!), so give them a few new bands to wear out on your next date on the town together.

6. Electric Wine Opener, $50

The easiest corkscrew they’ll ever use. Just put it on top of the bottle, and let the opener do ALL the work! Gift it with their favorite bottle, and share over great conversation.

7. Custom Barware, $62

With a heavy, solid base, this glass barware will add a sophisticated touch to their bar cabinet. Have it engraved with an inside joke, just between you two, so they smile every time they reach for a glass.

8. Polaroid Instant Camera, $150

They have, love, and use their mini instant camera everywhere you go, so gift them the original! Includes a pack of full-sized film.

9. Mini Cloud Paint Duo, $23

A cult favorite cream blush from Glossier, in a mini duo set so they can see what all the hype is about. Highly pigmented for the prettiest lit-from-within glow!

10. iPhone Wallet Crossbody, $128

This one is on my wishlist! As someone who tries to get away with the smallest purse possible, I love this pretty crossbody bag built for nothing more than the essentials: an iPhone, ID and a credit card.

11. Vintage Embroidered Tee, $42

Get them something that’s truly one of a kind: a pre-2000s vintage tee-shirt (I can’t believe I just called that vintage, but here we are) with an embroidered detail added by the seller. All the items in this shop are beautiful, but the custom embroidery on many pieces takes it to the next level!

12. Botanical Body Oil, $18

This cheeky Beer + Cigarettes body oil will remind them of your long, wild nights together, but don’t let the name fool you! It’s scented with dried tobacco leaves, lavender, and hops, the reason this Chicago-made brand is their top seller!

13. Blue Light Blocking Reading Glasses, $29

For your work husband or wife, you can’t beat a pair of blue light blocking glasses – so dorky, they’re actually cute again. Available with magnification, too!
