    29 Fun Little Gifts To Give Your Friends Just Because

    Quirky earrings, a Schitt's Creek coloring book, corgi butt socks, and more delights to make your friends' days.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A little book to fill in with fun memories, inside jokes, and reasons they're your go-to partner in crime. Warning: may cause happy tears.

    Amazon

    These cuties come in tons of different versions for different occasions or people in your life, but all of them are filled with 50 fill-in-the-blank prompts you can complete about your loved one. I got the "Why You're My Bestie" one from my BFF a few years ago and it filled me with all the warm fuzzy feels. IMHO, the "Why I Miss You" one would be perfect to send to someone while socially distancing.

    Promising review: "Had a friend going through a rough time and wanted to cheer her up, so I got this book and had a bunch of other friends help me fill it out! That was a fun way to do it because then you get all kinds of answers, and it was an easy way to make a small gift a group gift." —WitchPlease

    Get it from Amazon for $9.42+ (available in 14 themes, from ones for parents and grandparents to romantic partners to kids).

    2. An iconic Lizzo sticker that'd be perfect to send with the note "Cuz I love you." After all, they may be their own soulmate, but you're a close second.

    Get it from StylishSista on Etsy for $4 (available in two finishes).

    3. Cheeky corgi butt socks featuring puppers proudly showing off their posteriors. How can you resist getting a matching pair for yourself, too?

    Promising review: "Bought these for my best friend who has a corgi butt obsession and they were a hit. She is a fun sock enthusiast and these fit right up her alley and right on her foot." —CourtneyJo

    4. A delightful AirPod case that your favorite potato or go-to boba tea date buddy will take with them everywhere.

    Smoko

    Get the potato for Smoko for $16 and the boba from Smoko for $16 or Urban Outfitters for $15.

    5. An amazing screaming goat figure who I'm sure they will find to be hilarious but also a very, very big mood. Just press him and he lets out a shriek!

    The figure, on a little log platform, and the booklet
    Amazon

    He also comes with a little book of equally delightful goat facts.

    Promising review: "This is one of those things you don't know you need in your life until you see it. Yes, it may have been a late night, altered state kind of purchase that surprised me a bit when it showed up, but it's one of the best things that's ever happened to me. For just a few dollars, you too can receive an informational mini-book full of goat facts to awe and impress your friends as well as a miniature screaming goat. It sounds best when set on a hard surface like a table or desk, so the sound can echo. It's just loud enough for coworkers to ask 'did y'all just hear a screaming goat?' Yes. Yes you did, Phil. If the house is quiet enough, I can even elicit a chuckle from the other room when I press down to hear this goat scream. And I live alone (JK). If you've read this far, it's been decided: you need this. This will be there for you longer than that dumb T-shirt you're considering or those supplements you know you're not going to take. This screaming goat will complete you. Better get one for your best friend too, while you're at it." —echobunny

    Get it from Amazon for $9.05.

    Glossier

    It's cruelty-free and also free of common allergens like nuts, gluten, soy, and dairy.

    Promising review: "I am so pleased with the formula! Great soothing and rich texture, but not an overly oily finish. The subtle smell of Glossier You is what we alllllllll needed! And the packaging...NAILED IT! So fun to use and I love the ribbon effect you get when the cream comes out. This product was launched at the perfect time — my hands are cracked from washing them so much!" —Chantsy

    Promising review: "THE BEST PURCHASE OF MY ENTIRE LIFE! I love stickers, so when I saw these in a BuzzFeed article, I had to get some. The only problem was deciding which face to use. I knew I wanted to get stickers of my husband's face, but that wasn't enough. I needed MORE. As I scrolled through the pictures on my phone, I saw it. It was fate. There before me was the screenshot I had taken of one of my little sister's most embarrassing Snapchat selfies. I knew in that moment that this beautiful image had to be immortalized in sticker form! When the stickers came in the mail I ripped open the package as fast as I could. What greeted me was the face of an angel! I have not laughed that hard in a very, very long time. Every time I look at these stickers I can't help but smile. I plan to put the largest sticker on a mug for my sister's husband." —Katie King

    Get a sheet of 21 from Amazon for $15.99.

    26. An encouraging postcard for a pal who's going through a tough time or in need of a confidence boost. Remind them that they can take any opportunity and ~rabbit~.

    Get them from Amazon for $4.99+ (available in two designs).

    28. Hilarious Shakespearean insult bandages that'll lend some first aid to the literature nerd in your life. They won't even be bummed about a paper cut when they get to put one of these babies sonnet.

    A box of the bandages with examples on them like "Do thou amend they face and I'll amend my life" and "Thy wit's as thick as Tewksbury mustard"
    Amazon

    My best friend had these when we were in college, and whenever I needed a bandage I told her she could give me a regular one so she could save these for herself. She'd always be kind and give me one of these to bring a smile to my day, but I wouldn't blame your friend if they kept these gems for their personal use only. Plus, each box also comes with a little surprise inside! And psst...reviewers note that they do contain latex, so aren't good for folks who are allergic.

    Get a tin of 15 from Amazon for $6.99.

    Promising review: "Some people think that love at first sight is only in movies, but I can tell you for certain it's not. When I first locked eyes with this 4-foot-11 cutout, it was a rush of emotion like no other. Only buy this cutout if you can afford to fall in love. 10/10 would start a family with." —Andrew

    Get a two-foot cutout for $19.97 or a life-size cutout for $81.97, both from Amazon.
