Our best friends and loved ones are always there for us in the best of times (like when you finally get that job promotion) and the worst of times (when your ex breaks your heart for the fifth time in a year). But when you live in different places, showing your BSFs how much you care can be difficult. This rundown of cheap gifts for friends is full of those mini gifts that can really mean a lot.
This can mean sending them a beautiful bouquet of flowers, a delicious box of chocolates, or a mini gift set from their fave beauty brand. No matter what route you take, you can rest easy knowing that the action alone will put a well-deserved smile on their face. We get that searching for the best gift for your best friend or loved one can be tough; there’s so much they deserve it’s nearly impossible to choose what to send. So, to make it a little easier on you and to expedite the process so that the goodies can be delivered ASAP, we rounded up some under-$25 gift ideas for your friends and loved ones that will undoubtedly brighten their day.
Each one of these giftable treats is something you can send to your pals to show that you’re thinking about them and are truly in their corner. And, since you’re not breaking the bank with these purchases, you can put all the extra cash aside to buy a plane ticket out to see them in a few months. There’s no better surprise than a visit, after all.
