4 Cute Gift Ideas for Friends

friends, quote, love

"What do you want for your birthday?"

My birthday is coming up and this is the question on everyone's lips at the moment. From friends and family to my partner, no matter who is asking, my answer is always the same - I don't know.

This year, I haven't a clue what to ask for and have resorted to the safety net of the bookstore gift card. A fail-safe option, but not exactly what people are hoping to hear when they want to give a more personal gift.

Personal issues and gift-related confusion aside, this got me thinking and before long, I was on the hunt for some cute gift ideas.

I've picked out a few of my favourite ideas to share with you - perfect gifts for when you're struggling to find the right present for a friend!

Pins

You may be forgiven for thinking that pins are a bit of a fashion throwback. While they may not be the newest kids on the style block, there's no denying the fact that pins are making a comeback and this humble accessory seems to be here to stay.

From novelty favourites to striking enamel pins, there are plenty of options out there to suit every preference - just do a little research and you're bound to find one they will love! If you're still struggling for inspiration, the Old English Company are currently running a giveaway where you can enter to win a set of gorgeous enamel pins, so don't miss out!

Photographs

What could be better than memories of all the good times you've spent together? Every friendship deserves to be treasured, so take the opportunity to show them how much you appreciate the bond you share by highlighting some of the best bits.

Whether it's a collage of photo prints, a scrapbook or memory book or a canvas of your favourite picture of the two of you together, these are all great ways to celebrate a fantastic friendship. If you prefer to keep things simple, pick out a classy frame and fill it with a picture of you both - gift; sorted.

Stationery

Everyone loves stationery! From multi-coloured pens to colouring pencils, journals, notebooks and more, there are certainly plenty of options to choose from when it comes to this idea.

After all, stationery is both useful and fun - why not pick a personalised pen or a notebook with a cute design on the cover and add stylishness to the mix? If your friend is a real stationery addict, you could even try getting them some handy accessories like a stationery drawer organiser or fancy pen pot instead - they're bound to appreciate the thought!

Sweets

Although sweets and chocolates are hardly innovative birthday presents, there's no reason to just grab a bargain box of chocolates from your local supermarket. Instead, if you do want to indulge your friend's sweet tooth, why not take the opportunity to get creative with the idea?

Create your own pick'n'mix selection filled with all their favourite sweets or alternatively, hand-pick a few luxury chocolates and present them in some gorgeous packaging, complete with ribbons, bows, confetti - the works!

No matter how you choose to celebrate your friends' upcoming birthdays, do so in style and don't forget that sometimes, it's the little things that really can make the biggest differences.
