32 Cute Gift Ideas for Friends You'll Want to Keep for Yourself

Bianca Nieves

Finding the perfect cute gift for your friends ⁠— no sweat, right? Wrong. Sure, they might be the person you know the most besides yourself, but when it comes to gifting, things can get tricky. You rapidly go through all of their belongings in your head before you hop on the internet or in your car to the nearest store. What do they need? What do they want? A million questions take over your mind, and at that moment, you notice that you're not so sure of what would be the ideal gift for your BFF. Now, it doesn't help that you forgot to take note of all the subtle (and not-so-subtle) hints they’ve been dropping all year. It's okay; it happens to the best of us. Regardless, we're here to share the gift-giving tip that hasn't failed us yet: Don’t gift anything you wouldn’t want to receive yourself.

The only downside of that tip is that well, you might want to keep the gifts for yourself. But since holiday gifting is all about spreading the love and showing your friends how much you appreciate them and their individual quirks, you can practice self-control quite easily. That and also, budget. We all wish we could gift all the cute things to all of our closest friends, but alas, money doesn't grow on trees (unfortunately).

Luckily, we've rounded up the best cute gift ideas for friends — no matter their interest. From cute gifts for friends who love to read and friends who love to stay in to cute gifts for friends who are always on the go and friends who want to save the turtles, see what gift you'll be giving them (and maybe even yourself) below. The best part? Most of the gifts ahead are under $50.
