What should you give your bestie when they already have the best of everything?

Original keepster malibu 28 min

It’s that time of year again—or maybe it isn’t and you just want to show your friend how much you love them—but you can’t figure out what to give them! You can’t give them a photo of you two because, duh, you did that last year. And the year before. 

Jewelry is out—because how impersonal? Unless it’s handmade—but you’ve done that, too.

In fact, if you’re like most besties, you’ve probably done the custom best friends portrait, the engraved heart, the year-long subscription to their fave vino shop, the cheeseboard, the cheese tasting experience, and the cheesy friendship bracelet. You’ve done everything!

But have you done a Keepster Message Book?
