Even if you can't see each other IRL right now, your best friend will love these gifts.

She’s the Ann to your Leslie, the Daphne to your Velma, Serena to your Blair, Monica to your Rachel, and Grace to your Frankie — she’s the BFF you can’t live without.

But even if you’ve moved a few states over from the playground where you met or a couple cities away from your college town, she’s still your first call. Even if you don’t always know what the time is exactly where she’s at.

Sometimes, it might be hard for you two to be away from each other. But, luckily, the days of letters and telegrams are over and you’re just a FaceTime call away from actually seeing her face.

Sometimes, it might be hard for you two to be far apart, especially during important occasions like new jobs or new homes, birthdays, pregnancy announcements and more.

And if you’re looking for a special something for your long-distance BFF, you won’t have to search far at all. We did that for you already and found cute gifts that she’ll love opening from afar. Plus, she’ll think of your friendship every time she sees one of them.

From a small-city candle for the friend trying to make it in a big city to a mug that offers some emotional support from a distance, these are gifts that’ll make it seem like you two aren’t so far away from each other.
