You think you know your friends well until it comes time to buy them a birthday gift. I’ve never quite been able to pinpoint why, but for whatever reason—possibly, the pressure—when you’re forced to think of what someone would like or enjoy on a time crunch, nothing comes to mind! At least, this has been my experience over the last several years, and from what my friends have told me, I’m not alone.

So, since I don’t have any birthday gifts to buy in the coming weeks, I thought there would be no better time than now to round some up great options, while the pressure is off. From affordable trinkets anyone would be happy to receive to bigger, group gift ideas worthy of chipping in for, just keep scrolling to see and shop 37 of the best birthday gifts you can buy the fashionable friend in your life right now.
