Searching for the perfect gift to buy your best friend?
Then you’ve come to the right place! We know how tricky it can be to find the perfect gift for your bestie. Let’s face it, if they have you as a best friend, they’ve already won the jackpot, right? So, what exactly do you buy the person who means everything? Luckily, we have a wonderful range of gift ideas to suit all personalities and budgets. You can choose from stunning personalised jewellery to classic gemstone bling or thoughtful decorative pieces.
How to choose the perfect gift for your BFF
At Hoskings we can help you whether you’re looking for something special to say “happy birthday”, “thanks for being there” or “you’re an awesome human”. But first we need to know a little bit more about your best friend so we can help you narrow down your choices.
Gifts for your fit-fam
If your best friend is addicted to the gym, then they won’t need any more sports gear, because that’s probably all they wear anyway, right? So how do you say “I love you” to an exercise-mad BFF without resorting to a buying a sweat towel that’ll sit forever in their smelly gym bag?
We have just the thing! Choose from our fantastic range of fitness trackers so that they can monitor their fitness goals, track their activity and even monitor their sleep! This uber-cool Cactus waterproof activity tracker connects to your BFF’s smartphone and has different sport activity modes such as running and biking so that they can boast about how much they’ve done when you next catch up!
Your friend the Boss Babe
Nothing says “entrepreneur” or “climbing the corporate ladder” better than a designer-label conference folder. This Hugo Boss ‘Gear' genuine black leather A5 folder with red trim oozes sophistication and Boss Babe vibes.
If you love the idea, but not the price, then a professional pen will say “thanks for being my bestie” just as well. And you don’t have to sacrifice style when choosing a pen like this stunning light green ballpoint pen with its slender, streamlined silhouette and sparkling strip of Swarovski crystals. Or this elegant gold-plated pen which is perfectly presented in a box to give to the boss babe in your life.
The one and only
If your best friend is one in a million, then they deserve a gift that’s meant just for them. Am I right? That’s why we adore our range of personalised jewellery. Tell ‘Ella’ she’s the best with this gorgeous sterling silver Von Treskow chain necklace with the initial 'E'.
Maybe Miss Mia likes a little more bling? Then this 9ct yellow gold letter M necklet with cubic zirconia is the perfect way to show you care.
But if you want your bestie to know that your friendship is locked in forever, then what better way than with an adorable rose gold padlock pendant with engraved initial. Just choose your letter and see their eyes light up! What Kelly wouldn’t love this Von Treskow padlock “K” pendant? Ask us in store for your bestie’s initial, or contact us online here.
For your hippie friend
Looking for a gift to buy your best friend who’s a bit of a closet hippie? We stock some gorgeous boho pieces that she’ll adore! See the full range here.
If there’s just too much to choose from, then we can vouch that our moonstone jewellery is always popular. This Von Treskow sterling silver moonstone bracelet is simply exquisite and you can even pair it with these gorgeous Von Treskow silver double drop moonstone earrings if you really want to impress! The luminous hues change when viewed from different angles which will delight your bestie for years to come.
If moonstone isn’t their thing, then every new-age bohemian needs a stack of bracelets. Choose a few to layer eclectically or even better, start with a charm bracelet like this Thomas Sabo sterling silver oval belcher-link bracelet with a diamond set carrier near the clasp. Then all you need to do is choose some charms to adorn the bracelet, making gift-giving easy for years to come! This silver feather charm with synthetic coral and turquoise stones is bound to delight your hippie friend. And what better than this horse-shoe charm to wish them good luck?

Your fashionista friend
Is your BFF always stylish and on-trend? Of course they are! Does that make buying for them super-tricky? Of course it does! Well, not anymore! Hoskings have some stunning pieces that will delight the fussiest of BFFs. Right now, it’s all about asymmetry. So this asymmetrical Swarovski earring set with a pear-shaped stud, a princess-cut stud, and an oval-shaped ear cuff is right on-trend.
But if you really want to treat them, then you can’t go past these drop-dead-gorgeous sterling silver Thomas Sabo earrings. With intentionally mismatched Kingdom Star and Moon, both encrusted with cubic zirconias, they really are jaw-droppingly gorgeous.
The perfect gift for your best friend
The locket is thought to have been worn since ancient times, becoming popular as far back as the 16th century. Once upon a time they were worn to hold good luck charms, or portraits and locks of hair from a loved one. The symbolism of keeping a token from the one you love close to your heart is still as relevant hundreds of years later.
Because we’re true romantics here at Hoskings, we adore our range of lockets. Just look at this intricate heart locket with sterling silver and gold filigree details on a black background with diamonds. Or choose this simple sterling silver heart locket pendant that opens to reveal a space each side to place a small photograph.
Then there’s this truly stunning Thomas Sabo rose gold heart pendant, decorated with a sparkling star and a skilful graphic cut-out design that holds a surprise when opened. With so many to choose from, there’s sure to be a locket that will be perfect to spoil your bestie.
You friend doesn’t do bling? No problem. We’ve got just the thing.
If your best friend is perfect in every way, except they don’t wear bling, then don’t panic. We have plenty of other options for them!
Our Willow Tree collection delights everyone, young and old. The “Love my cat” figurine is perfect for cat lovers, or if your friend is a dog lover, then how about the “Love my dog” for the cutest gift ever? Actually, scrap that, the only thing cuter than the dog figure is the “Angel of friendship” figurine with an angel holding a puppy. Awwwww!
The “Sisters by heart” would also be perfect for your soul sister. But really, any one of the Willow collection would be the perfect thoughtful gift to buy your best friend.
