Best friends are the only family that we get to choose. True, they might not share our blood, but the bond between best friends is so much stronger and deeper than most other relations. Various countries like India, Indonesia, Bangladesh, and UAE celebrate friendship day on the first Sunday of August to strengthen the bonds they have with their besties.

If you also need to gift something cute to your best buddy, here are seven ideas for you.

1. Cider hamper

Are you and your bestie cider lovers? Then why not gift them a premium hamper containing Australia’s finest cider? It costs $100 and comes with apple cider of the finest quality. You can even send your friend a custom message on a card that comes with the hamper.

The hamper doesn’t just contain five bottles of cider; there are also savoury packets of nut mix, jerky, and wafers. The packaging is completely biodegradable, which is another big plus.

2. Name A Star

This “One in a Universe” gift costs $49 and is truly a special gift for your special one. Thanks to this set, your friend can literally name any star they want after their own name to mark an important date. Further, you can also name a star together to preserve the precious bond you both have.

This set comes with registry papers to officially name any star you want, as well as astronomical details to locate that star in the sky. After you register using the sheets, you can post it using the card given in the set and confirm the naming!
