100 best friend Instagram captions to show your BFF all the love

Post one of these short, funny or cute messages when you're missing them most.

Your best friend is the first person you call when you've got good news to share.

And, when life doles out lemons, they're the ones who make it better by mixing up a batch of lemonade — or margaritas when you're really down and out.

That's why it's essential to shower them with all the love they deserve.

Perhaps, that means treating your BFF to cocktails, dinner, a weekend getaway or a gift they've been eyeing. And while you're at it, be sure to snap a picture to share your special bond with the rest of the world. The photo may speak for itself, but pair it with one of these best friend captions to really get the message across.

Whether it's a photo of the two of you getting matching tattoos or celebrating a special birthday together, we've got a variety of funny and cute captions to use for just about every occasion.

If you have a long-distance bestie, pick one of the captions that best expresses just how much you miss them. Not the sentimental type? Go with a short caption and sprinkle in a few of your favorite emojis (like the dancing duo for obvious reasons).

Whatever you're in the market for, we're here to help with a collection of clever Instagram captions to remind your closest bud that friends forever is exactly what you'll always be.
