“Friendship is a single soul dwelling in two bodies”- Aristotle
The first Sunday of August is a day dedicated to celebrate the unusual yet beautiful bond called friendship. Since gifts play a significant role in strengthening the bond between you and your friend, it is very important to choose the right thing for your BFF.
Friendship Day gifts need not be precious or expensive but should be well thought of. In short, a gift for a friend should be something that has come out straight from the heart.Selecting the best gift for your best friend can sometimes be a challenging task, but the only thing to be kept in the mind is to choose something that reflects love, care and warmth.
Here are a few gift ideas for your friends:
Cards are the cheapest and the most effective way through which you can convey your feelings. It is always better to show some creativity and present a handmade card to your special friend. Trust me, your bestie will treasure it more than precious stones or expensive gifts.
As it is said that books are a man`s best friend, at the same time books are the best possible thing that you can gift your friend on this special day. But, it is always important to keep in mind the choice of your friend while selecting books.
Nothing shows affection better than flowers. Get your best friend a bunch of fresh flowers from the market. If possible, you can surprise your BFF by placing the flowers by his/her bedside, so that your special friend wakes up to a beautiful smell in the room. Attaching a small note with a message is also a good idea.
Personalised gifts are another expressive and emotive option. Get a t-shirt or a mug printed of you and your bestie - make sure you also have another one just like that for yourself.
Spa vouchers can be a great option, especially for girl friends. Spas and beauty treatments have lost their priority because of our hectic daily routines. So, this is the best time to gift your BFF a relaxing day. And trust me, she will thank you at least a million times for the useful gift.
Chocolates make a good gift for friends on this special day. You can go for a hamper of your friend`s favourite chocolates or nutrition bars. This will certainly bring a big smile on his/her face. And yes, you can share it then and there to celebrate the occasion.
Light up your friend`s room with a variety of candles in different shapes and sizes. Every time your friend takes a whiff of the scented candles, it will remind him/her of you.
Plan an outing
Planning a picnic or an outing with your friend on the day is also a good option. If you and your friend are foodies than you can go out for a good lunch or dinner outing. Fun activities like bowling, movie or shopping can also be chosen.
Now that you have so many ideas to pamper your friend on the special day, go ahead and just celebrate. Try and create as many beautiful memories as possible with these gifts. These small presents will certainly send across a message of love and care to your buddy.
Friendship Day occurs just once a year, so make the most of it!
