Tis officially the season for gift-giving. For us, it’s 31 days of gift giving; for a month, we’ll be providing gift ideas for everyone on your list—from your hard-to-please parents to your ’90s-loving BFF and even your spoiled pet. Filled with creative picks that got our pulses racing, our Unwrapped holiday gift guides will make Christmas shopping a breeze this holiday season.
When it comes to gifting your closest friends a really rad piece of jewelry this holiday season, it’s best to think outside of the box. The classic, run-of-the-mill broken heart puzzle piece necklace just isn’t going to cut it anymore.
Whether you find them something loud and bright, delicate and simple, or just really cool—you want to get them a piece that suits their style (and, you know, is something that they won’t wear only when they know they’re going to see you). Even if it is BFF-related, it has to be fun and quirky.
While keeping all of that in mind, the goal is always to find cool pieces that still leave your wallets intact, which can prove to be a bit of a challenge—and that’s where we come in to save the day. We rounded up 18 of the coolest pieces under $100 to gift your bauble-loving best friends. Click through the gallery below to check them out.
