Thoughtful Gifts for Your Best Friend this Christmas

Tis the season to enjoy good food, beautiful decor, and gorgeously wrapped gifts under the tree. But as the big day gets closer, those of us who like to procrastinate (you know who you are!) are sweating their holiday gift-giving–and it’s not because warm scarves are wrapped around our necks. We know we’re not alone in wondering what fits the bill for thoughtful gifts for your best friend!

Last-minute Christmas shoppers fall into one of three categories: 

  1. They don’t know what to get their friends and loved ones.
  2. They’re too busy cooking, traveling, Christmas pageants, and creating Christmas magic to deal with the crowds.
  3. They do everything last minute (hey, we’re not judging.)

While we can’t magically dissipate the crowds or force you to go shopping, we can give you some thoughtful gift ideas for your best friends in your life! Grab your list and your shopping fingers and snag one of our E. and Co. Clothing unique friendship gift ideas.
