2. Some cute, cozy PJs

You know your bestie deserves some downtime, so why not help her get cozy and look cute at the same time? Eberjey Gisele short sleeve pjs may borrow their style from the boys, but their fit is unmistakably feminine (Eberjey, $102).

3. A plantable ribbon garden

Give your best girl the gift of a Butterfly Habitat Garden and watch your friendship blossom just as beautifully. If the fact that this ribbon garden made the Oprah ‘O’ List doesn't hook her right off the bat, maybe she'll appreciate that the super-simple garden comes in its own chic hat box with plantable seed ribbons inside (Olive Barn, $19).

4. A retro photo album

There's something so 1994 about old-school photo albums with plastic sleeve inserts, and that's precisely what makes this vintage photo album perfect for the friend who rocked acid-wash jeans with you. Get this baby started for her by sticking in a few snaps from those nights you don't really remember, but, as it turns out, you'll never forget  (Amazon, $9).
