    1. A jar of capsule messages for you to write little love notes on so they can open one when they are missing you too.

    2. A cross-stitch kit to keep their hands busy while you FaceTime them for hours and share your day together.

    4. A pack of aerating wine decanters because you're in that new phase of your life where this is actually something you'd want so you know your bestie will love it too.

    5. A set of two friendship lamps, one for your home and one for theirs. When you touch your lamp, the two lamps will light a new color as a simple way of showing you're thinking of them.

    6. A pair of chevron earrings for your BFF that'll have them feeling cute as heck and missing your iconic sense of style.

    A model wearing one of the stud earrings in the gold finish. It wraps slightly around the back your earlobe and forms a point about where your piercing is, so it's a stud that looks like a cuff

    7. A stylish (!?) truffle-infused hot sauce because you know exactly who in your family (or circle of friends) puts hot sauce on everything and you just know they'll appreciate this thoughtful gift.

    8. A pillowcase because you're missing hugging them and you just know they're missing hugging you too.

    A pillow that says "hug this pillow until you can hug me"

    9. A retro hotel keychain based on you and your loved one's fave TV show or movie. If they watch an episode without you, it's a crime.
