Gifts for your BFF

Our friends: What would we do without them? If we didn't have our BFFs, we'd be destined to roam this crazy existence alone — and wandering this world would not be nearly as enjoyable if we didn't have someone who laughed at all the same stupid stuff we do. Or to commiserate with all the injustices we encounter. Or vent to about work. Or complain to about family problems. Seriously, we could go on forever.

Still, we spend more time chatting and hanging out with our best friends than anyone else, and we know them (and they know us) better than any single person that exists, so why are they sometimes so hard to shop for? It seems like picking the perfect gift should be easy, but it's not. Here are some ideas to get you started.
