“The greatest gift of life is friendship, and I have received it.”- Hubert H. Humphery
Friendship is a kind of bond that we cherish forever. We remember the laughter we shared sitting on the backbenches of the classroom and the silences we shared sitting together and reading our own books. We also remember the heartbreaks and heartaches that we went through and emerged stronger only because we were together. I honestly believe that life can be lived without romantic love if only we have a few good friends by our side. And to cherish and celebrate this day of unbreakable love, it’s time that you do something more than just sharing Friendship Day messages. So we decided to list out a few options of Friendship Day gifts you can give your nearest and dearest.
Buying gifts for your girl gang can be a lot of fun. You know what they like, if they’re into makeup or clothes or music or sports - you know and love them for their hobbies and interests. So scream happy friendship day to them and consider these gift ideas for friends. While you can always go for some DIY Friendship Day gifts, we say do it differently this year and buy them special customised gifts especially to go with their personality and celebrate your bond. Also, if not for everyone, your best friend sure deserves something extra special after all, she’s dealt with you and your drama for so many years.
If your friend is into gardening or likes to decorate her room with plants then a terrarium is the perfect gift. It’s pretty and doesn’t need too much watering or care. She can hang this one on a wall or on a balcony outside the house and it’ll add a touch of rustic beauty to it. It’s probably one of the most sustainable gifts on the list.
One of the most on-trend accessories that every girl needs is an eye-catching waist bag. It’s small and compact to be carried around without feeling heavy yet big enough to fit all the basics like a wallet, phone, and keys. She can carry it for a night out and dress it up or even carry it for a day event casually. So if you feel like she needs to change her basic black bag, this printed waist one is a great idea.
A girl can never have too many bikini tops and that’s a fact. Basic black and white bottoms can be repeated and the tops can be changed.
