We all develop crushes. It’s a normal feeling. However, it gets a little tricky when you’re crushing on one of your closest gal pals.
Her birthday is coming up and you want to give her something. But you don’t want to get birthday gifts for her that might scare her away or jeopardize your friendship. You want to give her something that won’t reveal your true feelings but will still show her that you care… as a friend.
You want to gift her something that will not give you away too much. After all, you don’t even know if she likes you back. The wrong gift might just make things awkward and ruin what you both have – a great friendship.
The most delicate time in a crush situation is during that stage when you don’t know if you should tell her you like her or not. So you want to tread lightly in such circumstances. You don’t want to give something that’s over the top or too romantic but want to get her something that still shows you care.
If you’re looking for some great gift suggestions for your crush and close friend, here are some ideas that you might want to look into.
A great gift would be a mixed CD. You can burn a collection of her favorite songs or top songs from her favorite artist. She will appreciate this and it will remind her of you every time she listens to it.
A spa gift basket is also another wonderful gift option. A girl always wants some pampering. Include some scented candles, some aromatherapy oils, bath soaps and lotion. This is perfect especially if she is stressed from work or school.
Personalized gifts are always appreciated. You can get her either a personalized mug, pen, stationery, keychain or towel.
A food basket would also be a good idea. Put in some crackers, cheese, nuts, chocolates, grapes. You can even throw in a nice bottle of wine.
A friendship bracelet will be something she will love. It will just show her how much your friendship means to you. You can do it yourself or get one online.
If she loves to read, then you might want to get her a book. Has she mentioned any titles that she still has not read in one of your conversations? This will be a great way to show her that you pay attention to what she says.
If you are not sure which book to choose, a better option would be to get her a gift card to a bookstore. This will allow her to select whatever she wants.
If she collects knick-knacks, try getting her a small wooden jewelry box like the Heart Trinket Box. This cute and charming box will store all of her small trinkets.
The important thing when getting gifts for your crush is not to get one that is too expensive and lavish or she might feel uncomfortable. Simple gifts are best for crushes. Who knows maybe someday this simple crush will blossom into something more.
