Gift Childhood or Old common stuff

Childhood or common old stuff

It’s a unique idea that I want to share with you all. Actually, let me explain my story and explain to you how you can do the same for your best friend too.

Last year I thought to gift something unique to one of my two best friend, who stays in different states from quite a long time. So I thought what I should get him, then the idea kicked in.

In our childhood he uses to like a wall clock on my wall, the special thing about that clock was its board was printed with Manchester united football team logo. That clock was rare in the market, luckily I got that clock and he use to like it a lot. Sometimes he begged me to give him that clock,  but I never did that as I was also an MAN.U fan.

Last year what I did was really special. Although that clock was very close to my heart but still I thought why not I should gift this clock to him. I couriered him that clock and he got so surprised that I did this for him. Initially, he didn’t believe it but then he called me and he was so happy and thanked me.

So did you inspired by my real life story? You can do even the same, the idea is to gift something that you use to share common in your childhood with your best friend. That is the best present you can get your best friend to rewind all those memories too.

Personalized gifts

Personalized gifts are just perfect to present your best friends. Although these kind of gifts are perfect for anyone but are most suitable for best friends. Recently I read a Huffington post where the author told a real experience of her friend gifting personalized gift to her.

In the article, she wrote how her best friend gifted her a big collage of all old memories shared with him. She decorated that collage with some great messages and wishes. She was so surprised to see some of the very rare pictures in the collage. She shared her feelings in the article by mentioning how nostalgic she felt having that surprise gift from her best friend.

I hope this story also make you inspired. This way even you can do something for your best friend. There are many options you can look for if you want to consider personalized gifts. These gifts are perfect for friends because it takes the person memory down the lane.

Funny Gifts


You know sometimes you feel like gifting something that can bring a big smile on his/her face. I still remember when I was in 10th standard in school one of my good friend got a really funny gift from her girlfriend. She gifted him a white men underwear and the funny part was that she wrote some funny message on it, LOL.

Even I have tried something like this with one of my friends as he is still virgin at age of 26. So I gifted him a condom packet with a nice wrapped box. When he opened the box we all friends burst out in loud laughs.

You can do the same thing but you should know what kind of thing can actually bring a smile on his/her face. By the way, if you can’t think of some ideas right now, then you can just type in for funny gifts on any gifting site you will find some of the awesome and funny ready made gifts.

Hobby Gifts

Hobby gift

Here is also one good option if you are looking up for some suitable birthday gifts for your best friend. I think if you don’t have much options or ideas or you are confused as what to gift, the best thing at that moment you can do is gift him/her something that is related to his/her hobby or interest.

This is kind of bingo as in any way you are gifting him/her something that he/she going to like anyway. For an example if suppose your best friend is a musician and to be specific he/she is a guitarist, then the best gift you can present is related to guitar. Isn’t it as simple as that?

But for this, you must know what are the things your best friend likes the most or the hobbies. As you are best friends so I assume that you already know that. So just pick that gift related to his/her interest or hobbies and this would be the really great birthday surprise for your best friend.

Cool stuff based on interest

If you guys are young then probably what is in trend is the best suitable because these days everybody wants to be in trend and not left out. Everybody likes cool stuff, for an example, you can gift a latest cool Bose headphones to a person who loves listening music.

So in this way you need to find out his/her interest and then find what’s cool in that. You can search for different forums to find out what is latest and cool.
