Sure, your bestie loves anything you give her, but since she’s been there for you through thick and thin (including every single emergency vent session), give her a present this holiday season that shows just how much you appreciate her friendship. Here, 18 gift ideas for every type of friend on your list.

4. To-Go Casserole Carrier
If potlucks are your group's thing, she’ll love a fancy vessel that will transport her butternut squash lasagna without ruining the beautiful, cheesy top. Plus, the windowed lid pops off so you’re able to serve straight from the pretty dish—making the host’s tablescape look even cuter.

Did we mention this one's made entirely from recycled materials?
Your work wife keeps harping on the fact that the office still uses styrofoam cups but, ironically, keeps forgetting to bring in one of her own. Surprise her with this sustainable glass and cork mug so she can tote hot tea from meeting to meeting in style.
15. UGG Pom Fleece Lined Socks
Why have regular socks when you can have cable-knit pom pom ones? These adorable fleece-lined foot warmers cinch at the top so they won’t slide down her ankles—even though she’s probably just wearing them to go from the couch to the kitchen and back again.

Texting back and forth is a given, but this thoughtful book gives you an excuse to share more personal messages through handwritten letters.
