Gifts for Friends (Female!) What would life be without friends? Lonely! The bonds of friendship can often outlast even marriage. So, a friend is a gift whose loyalty mustn't be taken for granted. Gifts for friends should reflect the value of the relationship. If she's your bosom buddy, make sure she feels you bothered! Something personalised may be appropriate. For mates in your wider circle, token friend presents are fine. Pick inexpensive funny or fashionable presents for this friend, just to show you remembered her birthday.
