    31 Little Gifts To Send Your Friends To Let Them Know You're Thinking Of Them

    Start dropping hints to all your pals now!

    1. A heart-shaped kitchen spoon that's like the grown-up equivalent of sending a love letter. Every time they use it, they'll be reminded of their awesome friends (aka you)! It's carved out of wild olive wood, so each spoon is completely unique — just like your friend.

    2. A Friends trivia game that'll finally put all their hours of binging to use. There are 50 questions, ranging from the easy (the name of Ross' first wife), to the more difficult and obscure (what name is printed on the address label of Chandler's TV guide?), so your friend will feel thoroughly challenged.

    3. A fill-in-the-blank book that'll give you a chance to tell them what you love about them. Maybe it's a super-cool outfit you can't get enough of, or maybe it's their unwavering love for their friends — whatever it is, put it in writing!

    4. A HelloFresh gift card that'll eliminate the stress of having to plan AND make meals. Each HelloFresh kit includes just enough yummy ingredients to make a delicious, chef-inspired meal, so they won't have to spend hours cleaning up the kitchen.

    5. An adorable sloth plushie that doubles as a heating and cooling pad. Tell your friend to pop it in the fridge, or warm it up in the microwave — it's fantastic for soothing bumps and bruises, or easing painful cramps. They may not be able to snuggle their pals, but at least they can snuggle this lil' guy.

    6. This PopSocket phone stand with built-in lip balm, because it's 2020 and we deserve this kind of convenience. Your friend will have a cute, handy little stand for their FaceTime calls with you, and when their pout gets parched, they'll have a remedy close at hand.

    7. This set of donut portraits that'll blend classy artistry ("it's a gallery wall!") with child-like fancy. Plus, who doesn't love donuts? Each set comes with 12 portraits of these delectable desserts, they can arrange them however they want — maybe one in every room of the house?

    8. This mini LED lamp that'll cure gel nail polish and help them achieve salon-quality manicures at home. Sure, maybe you guys can't go to the spa together, but this is the next best thing.

    9. An anti-anxiety guide that'll help quell stress, uneasiness, and worry using cognitive behavioural therapy techniques. The accompanying booklet is super handy in figuring out which techniques are best for which situation, making it easier than ever to help squash unpleasant and unwanted feelings.

    10. A set of nine foodie dice, so they'll never be faced with ~dinner block~ every again. One toss of these inscribed cubes and they'll be able to choose from over 186,000 (!!) meal options. The options range from protein, to seasonal veggies, grain/carb selections, and even herbs and spices, so they'll never have to make the same thing twice.

    11. A set of friendship lamps that light up when one of you touches it. Distance truly doesn't matter — as long as they're both connected to Wi-Fi, you can let your friend know you're thinking of them whenever you like.

    12. This galactic puzzle that, much like the universe, has no fixed edges, or beginning or end, and can be put together in infinite combinations (seriously). Not only is this a gift that's basically guaranteed to be one-of-a-kind, but it's endless — so your friend will never be bored again.

    13. This hilarious card game that'll make HouseParty hangouts a lot more fun. Each card is inscribed with a series of nonsense words that, when said aloud, come together to form a real phrase. Laughter will abound. I promise.

    14. Some eucalyptus tea steepers that'll help clear out their sinuses, ease chest congestion, and add a refreshing touch to their shower. Tell them to drop one of these baggies in a bowl of warm water if they want to reap the soothing benefits. The bags can be re-steeped, too!

    15. A soft lil' duckie that'll make them feel spec-QUACK-ular. Sure, you may not be able to give them a big ol' hug, so let this squishie do the job for you. It's soft, it's cute, and it's snuggly as hell.

    16. This little book of crystals that comes with four commonly-used stones for meditation (citrine, amethyst, rose quartz, and green aventurine). Maybe they've been interested in meditation for a while, or maybe they're just dipping their toe in — in any case, this guidebook will help them on their journey.

    17. A gel eye mask that'll help soothe any pain incurred while day-drinking. Tell your pal to pop this baby in the fridge for a few minutes so the gel beads get nice and frosty. Puffy, tired eyes begone!

    18. A set of two cute bookmarks that might encourage them to pick up that novel they've been meaning to read (you know, the one you lent them six months ago and they refuse to return because they "haven't had time to read it yet").

    19. A bottle of smudge mist that'll help your friend give their space a nice, deep cleanse. It's infused with gems (like Herkimer diamonds, smokey quartz, amethyst, and lapis lazuli) to really help supercharge the ~smudging~ power.

    20. This BITE Beauty lip care set that will soften, hydrate, and exfoliate their smoocher in no time. This beauty treat has everything they'll need to exfoliate, soothe, moisturize, prep, and mask their kisser. It's basically a one-stop shop for lovely lips!

    21. This booklet of temporary tattoos that's chock full of stunning botanical and floral designs, plus art print keepsakes. The tattoos are vibrant and easy to apply, and the prints can even double as wall decor.

    22. Some of these squishy noodles that'll help them knead out their stress. It's the safest way to send ~noodz~! They're cooler than fidget spinners, and a lot better use of their hands than scrolling through the 'gram.

    23. A pair of swanky Marshall's Bluetooth headphones that might finally eliminate the question, "Can you hear me now?" The plush, cushy earpieces are so comfortable, they'll never want to take them off. And with 30-hour playback, it'll take them nearly through their whole week on a single charge.

    24. This intuitive planter that never has to be watered. No, really! If your friend's the type to kill every plant they touch, this little machine is the perfect gift. It monitors the moisture of the plant's habitat, and adjusts accordingly by condensing water from the air.

    25. This lovely linen-bound daily planner, so they can write down their hopes, their dreams, some hilarious anecdotes, or just their to-do list. Sometimes cracking the page on a fresh notebook is just the thing to get the ol' creativity ball rolling!

    26. Some long-distance friendship bands that vibrate whenever one of you touches it. They can even customize the colours on the light-up screen! And each bracelet has a four-day battery life, so they'll feel like you're always with them.

    27. An inspiring little book that will remind them how special and kickass they are. It even comes with a button that shouts out inspirational phrases! The included book features funny stories and advice, so your pal will always feel supported and inspired (even if you're not around).

    28. This sleek tampon carrying case that's roomy enough to fit all their menstrual accoutrements. And it even has a strap, making it perfect to hang on the back of bathroom doors (because nothing is more gross than having to put your stuff on the toilet paper holder).

    29. This Rick Sanchez chia pet that'll make them wubba-lubba-dub-dub all over the place. Maybe they don't have much of a green thumb — but that's okay! This chia pet is so low-maintenance, they'll just need to cover it in seeds and watch them grow. It can even be repurposed with other seeds (like basil, thyme, alfalfa, or marjoram).

    30. A richly-scented room spray, so they can give their place a spritz of freshness. It can be sprayed on linens, furniture, or just about anywhere they need a zippy pick-me-up.

    31. And lastly, this swanky pearl-encrusted grinder that will upgrade their ~herb~ game. This baby has three chambers — a grinder, a sieve, and a catch-all container — so they'll always get the precise results they're looking for.

    To friendship!
