When I was in elementary school, the “best friend” designation carried a lot of weight (and a bit of a competitive edge). Best friends were alone at the top of the friendship heap — the keeper of all your deepest secrets, the person you had to pick first in gym class. These days, I like Mindy Kaling’s take better: best friend isn’t a person, it’s a tier. Whether you have innumerable pals, each best in their own way, or a single true friend of the heart, BFF-dom deserves celebration. Since June 8 is  US National Best Friends Day, I’m sharing a slideshow of items inspired by friendship — click through to see them all.
