Cultivating friendships is important for our well-being because friends provide comfort, joy, support, and company during our best, worst, and even mundane moments.
Life is just so much more colorful and meaningful with friends. And so for this International Friendship Day, show how much you treasure your beloved friends with these 5 tips written by someone with long-distance friendships.
Catch up Digitally
Nurturing friendships takes time and energy especially when busy or far apart. But thanks to social media and messaging platforms, maintaining strong connections with friends has never been easier. Making video calls is a great way to keep in touch and catch up with your friends anytime, anywhere.
Send a Card
Remind your friends how much you appreciate them by sending them a card with a handwritten message. It is a simple way to brighten up their day and bring a smile to their face. Send the perfect card to your BFFs with our fantastic range of cards!
Schedule a Trip Together
Hanging out with friends is always fun. Planning a memorable holiday with friends (whether it is a staycation, a dream destination trip, or an epic road trip across the country) can be a great way to reconnect and bond over new experiences, especially if you have not seen each other for quite some time.
Have Meals Together
Breaking bread has always been a way of bringing people together. Sharing meals, even if it is through a screen, is the perfect time to catch up on your friends' life updates while enjoying each other's company.
Send a Care Package
Nothing says "I'm thinking of you" like sending your besties a customized care package. Make your friends feel special by sending them a box filled with delicious local treats, souvenirs, pictures of special moments together, and other novelty items such as mugs, magnets, candles, and many others.
And hey, If you don't have the time... We've got a great selection of gifts to cheer up the friend that deserves something special.
