If you’re lucky, you have a best friend who is the Gayle to your Oprah—someone who makes you laugh even when you’re down, always answers the phone no matter how late it is and is the first to pop the Champagne cork whenever there’s something to celebrate.
That’s the kind of buddy worth honoring, whether it’s a holiday, a birthday, or simply because. However, a best buy birthday gift for your best friend is not a one-size-fits-all endeavor. That’s why we’ve developed a list of one-of-a-kind—but all-best-buy birthday gifts to give your best buddy, regardless of distance or circumstance. They all have one thing in common: they’re as unique as your tried-and-true bestie. Seriously, these are some best buy birthday gifts—you might be tempted to buy some for yourself as well. That is encouraged, and in some cases (see: the adorable matching friendship bracelets and complementing necklaces), it is required. And, by the way, these gifts are appropriate for whoever your bestie is—a childhood bestie, a work bestie, or even your mother.
