Sentimental Gift Ideas for Friends


Giving a sentimental gift to a friend is a way to show your friend how much the friendship means to you. Personalize the gift for the friend to create a token or memory your friend can treasure for years.

Personalized Gifts

  • Personalizing a gift creates a one-of-a-kind present for your friend. A favorite photo of the two can be placed in a frame engraved with your names, a quote about friendship or an inside joke. Or, have the photo imprinted onto a pillow or tee shirt, or set in an engraved key chain. If you have a lot of photos of you and your friend together, create a scrapbook and fill it with memories and friendship quotes, or a 12-month calendar with a different photo for each month.

Getting Out

  • Show your friend you've been listening by taking him to a movie or art exhibit only he wants to see, or to his favorite restaurant. Taking your friend to places that are favorite haunts of his is a gesture of friendship that is usually appreciated.

Friendship Gifts

  • Friendship bracelets aren't just for kids. Purchase two sophisticated, matching bracelets that you both can wear to show your friendship. Engrave the bracelets with a quote about friendship or other personal saying. Give your friend a book of quotes about friendship a handwritten note or dedication from you. Create a mixed CD or play list of songs that remind you of your friend and the good times you've shared. Give your friend a jar or container filled with slips of paper. Write a note on each piece of paper that includes what you love about your friend, inspirational quotes and thoughts on friendship.

Show You Care

  • Create a relaxation basket. Include a candle, flowers, scented soaps, chocolates and a favorite movie. Write a personal note to telling your friend you're always there for her. Include a "coupon" to cook, clean or take the kids for a day.
