Your friends have been there through thick and thin. You call them to vent when you’ve had a bad day, they empathize with you over your breakups, and they encourage you when life has you down. They are there to meet up with you whether you want to stay in an binge Netflix or go out and have some fun. Where would we be without our friends?
Showing your friends you care can be tough if you want to go above and beyond, but taking the time to choose a thoughtful present will show your friends how you really feel about them. If you’re stumped for ideas, here are a few ideas to get you started.
Hoodies are perfect lounge-around wear for any season and an excellent gift for your friends. You can make your own hoodies with inside jokes or a funny memory to remind your friend how much your friendship means to them. For an even more unique gift, add a picture of the two of you together or a meme that you love so much it’s become a regular part of your conversations.
Take care of a chore they despise
You know your best friend better than anyone else, and that means you know what tasks they absolutely hate doing. Taking care of one of these chores for your friend lets them know you’re listening to their complaints and that you want to make their life better. If house cleaning is a chore they despise, hire a house cleaner to tackle the task for them.
Favorite food subscription box
Maybe your friend is a beer connoisseur. Maybe they absolutely love chocolate, or perhaps something like hot sauce is more their jam. No matter what their favorite food addiction is you’re sure to be able to find a subscription box that will send them a new sample of whatever they love every month for up to a year.
Make their hobby even more awesome
This might require some extra investigation on your part, but think about your friend’s hobbies and see if there is something you can buy for them that will make their hobby even more enjoyable. It could be something as simple as a gift card to a craft store or the local tool shop, or the latest gadget that makes their hobby even more enjoyable for them. Check out hobby blogs to see if those bloggers have any new tools or great ideas that might help you narrow down your choices.
Friends are special, and when you find a good one it’s important to let them know how much they mean to you. Whether it’s for their birthday, Christmas, or no reason at all, taking the time out of your day to celebrate them and let them know you’re thinking of them will show them how much they mean to you and let them know how much you value the relationship you have with them.
