Needless to say, your BFF’s gift is in the bag if you shop using this guide. 😏 But don’t sleep on these picks! Some items sell out annually, and some are on sale, so grab hers before they sell out.
1. A curated and aesthetically packed gift box
BOXFOX – From $35
For your bestie who loves a good aesthetic and a bit of variety in her life. This women founded business gives near endless options to mix and match everything from gourmet chocolates and soy wax candles to plush blankets and decadent cookbooks — all packaged beautifully in one box with a custom card to your BFF, love YOU.
BOXFOX gives you the feeling of hand-selecting items for your bestie amongst a collection of premium, curated options. The company vets each partner brand, offering you a way to search their directory for products that give back, are eco-friendly or come from BIPOC or woman owned businesses.
As you build her box, the size will automatically adjust from “mini” to “regular” or “big,” always leaving room for more (or fewer) goodies. Now for the coolest part: this is a color-coded shopping experience. 🤍💛🧡 While you scroll through possible additions to her box – moving from beiges to whites, yellows, oranges and beyond – you can keep her gifts color coordinated.
If choosing a pre-curated box sounds more your jam for a bestie gift, the Holiday Collection offers many merry boxes filled with warmth and good tidings.
