Best friends are angels from heaven sent down to share your fries, hate the people you hate, and to re-watch Ghost World with over and over again until even your dog is sick of it. There should be a special day every month dedicated to the people who love and support you, like and comment on all your posts, and who never talk shit behind your back. In honor of them, and Galentine’s Day (Feb 13), today’s Friday Five is dedicated to the Left Eye and Chilli to your T-Boz — your fraaaands.
1. You’re Like, A Good Friend and Stuff
Alex Strangler’s shop is a wonderland of 90s pop culture crossovers and her Princess Beavis and Butt-Head pin set is no exception. It’s the 2018 version of the BFF necklace, you wear one while your bestie sports the other. I also love her Ren and Stimpy Best Friends pin, although if your friendship reminds you of these two you might want to find new friends.
2. Amber D’Alessio Made Out with a Hot Dog
Now I’m not suggesting you actually shit-talk other people with your bestie… but if you’re so inclined, why not record your sickest burns like The Plastics did? Word of advice – use codes in your Burn Book just in case it falls into the wrong hands. Or, be a grown up and use it to write down stories of your friendship instead of mean things about other people. Whatever.
3. Spill the T
The first rule of adulthood is that you cannot possibly have too many coffee mugs. I have probably 20 of them and I just had to take one out of the dishwasher and hand wash it so I could have some god damn tea because they’re all dirty. My personal favorite is my Suck My Balls mug from Daisy and Aster, and if you’re BFF is anything like me, he/she/they will love it too.
4. Fake Food
There are certain joys in this life that your romantic partner simply can’t provide. Only your bestie knows how much you will love and appreciate a macaron that you can hang on your wall. A life-size banana split for the bathroom? That’s something no lover can give you. That’s why the Mini Plaques from Everyday is a Holiday are a perfect Galentine’s Day gift – and only $30!
5. Witchy Shit
Remember when you and your friends saw The Craft for the first time and low key all decided you were witches without having to say a word about it? Commemorate those good times with a box of Spells for Modern Life from last Craft. Ward off exes, unsolicited dick pics and even internet trolls with this magical set. Give them to be used all together, or split them up among your nearest and dearest.
Whether you do it with gifts or not, take a minute to let your best friend(s) know how you feel about them today. Good friends are a treasure – keep them close!
