This year, National Friendship Day falls on July 30. While we think you should celebrate your companions all year long, this special holiday offers an opportunity to send a heartfelt message to those who mean the most to you.

In order to make this year's day extra special, we've put together a selection of meaningful friendship gifts. Many of these presents—including the classic best friends' necklace, adorable avocados, and fern tattoo set—are a fun way to show your friend that you think you're a perfect pair. Some, like the Secret Garden book bag and Friends mug, reference popular tales of camaraderie, while others take a more figurative approach—did you know that irises and topaz are traditional symbols of friendship?

No matter which gift you choose, you're sure to surprise your nearest and dearest companions this National Friendship Day!
