“There is nothing on this earth more to be prized than true friendship.” – Thomas Aquinas.
Friendship day is just around the corner, and you still have no idea what to gift? That’s alright! It might sound a bit cliche, but no gift can be superior then the gift of friendship. However, it doesn’t mean that you can use this line as an excuse.
Your friends have been by your side through thick and thin. They might be annoying sometimes, but they also bring joy to your life. Just imagine how uneventful your life will get without your buddies. In fact, even the thought of not having them beside you can be unbearable.
That’s the reason why you need to show how much you love and appreciate them. Giving gifts is merely a way to do so. But do you know what’s better than giving presents? It’s creating handmade gifts.
Believe it or not, but the expression that you’ll get to see on your bestie’s face would be worth all the effort. So, get your crafty hat on and get started with some DIY friendship day gift ideas.
- Collect All The Craziness In Scrapbook
The talk between friends can’t be understood by anybody else. So, why don’t you take advantage of this point and create a scrapbook filled with your “secret talks”? To make the scrapbook more impressive, you can also add a screenshot of the funniest things you guys tell each other, a movie or concert ticket, or embarrassing pictures. Don’t forget to decorate the scrapbook with glitter, sharpies, stones, etc.
- Pamper Them With BFF Care Box
One of the best parts of friendship is that you know almost everything about each other. Therefore, you can use this knowledge and create a “BFF care box” filled with things that they need. For instance, you can add chocolates (for those painful period cramps) or add headphones (for music lovers). In addition to this, you can also add scrunchies or mini photo cards.
- Go Classic With Self Portrait
If you have artistic skills, put those skills to use by creating a portrait. It is indeed old-school; however, it will also show how much you love and adore them. Select your favorite picture, collect all the necessary art supplies and equipment, and get to work.
But what if you liked this idea but don’t have skills? No worries! You can easily find artists around you. So you can take their help to prepare the gift.
Note: Try to choose the one in which they look good, otherwise embarrassing ones will also work.
- Remind Them To Stay Hydrated With Personalized Tumbler
In between all the struggles of life, people often forget to drink enough water. So, if your friend is also one of those people, it’s your responsibility to remind them to stay hydrated. One way to do so is by giving them a personalized tumbler. You can find a heat press supplier who can provide you all the necessary supplies for creating a personalized tumbler. It generally includes sublimation paper, a heat press machine, and special tumblers.
All you have to do is to print a design on the sublimation paper, put it in the machine, slide the tumbler into the machine, and press. Your selected design will transfer to the tumbler. Isn’t it a thoughtful gift idea? Your BFF will definitely appreciate it.
- Elevate Sweetness With Homemade Cookies
If your BFF has a sweet tooth, then nothing can top homemade cookies as a gift. So, you must start with your search to bake the tastiest cookies. Get all the ingredients, and make preparations. In fact, you can also invite your friends over and bake cookies together. To make this special day even more special, you can also plan an outing.
If you don’t want to make cookies, you can try making a cake or ice cream.
- Tie Them In An Unbreakable Bond With Handmade Bracelet
Accessories are always a great gift option. But they are no comparison to handmade bracelets. You can find several handmade bracelet ideas from YouTube or Pinterest. Just get the right supplies from your nearby drug store and start creating bracelets. It might take a few hours, depending upon your skills and design selected. Even so, they won’t fail to showcase your efforts.
- Help Them Dress Up With Infinite Scarf
How often does your friend bother you with the “I have nothing to wear” statement? If your answer is uncountable, then you should give them an infinite scarf. There are numerous ways in which you can use this scarf. That means your friends will never think about saying the above statement (at least not in front of you). Moreover, this scarf will protect them from harsh winter weather.
- Be There With “Open When” Letters
Unfortunately, you can’t always be physically present with your besties. That’s why to make up for your absence, you can give them “Open when” letters. You can write small messages inside the letters that’ll comfort them as if you are physically there. It is the easiest yet thoughtful gift to create. Simply write down different emotions and a message related to those.
For instance, you can write- Open when you are happy, and inside, you can write a secret joke or a cringe message to irritate them. Similarly, you can write – Open when you feel lonely, and inside, you can write your favorite song lyrics or a sweet note.
- Give Them Some “Me-time” With Mini Jar Of Happiness
Lastly, you can create a mini jar filled with small skincare items. Obviously, you need not create a mini jar; you can also pick a big bottle and add items to it. To upgrade the present, you can roll a picture and put it inside the jar. Or, you can create a soap at home with your friend’s favorite scent and add it into the jar.
Wrapping It Up!
Friendship is one of the purest relations. Your friends will participate in your craziness, scold you for your silly actions, yet love you for who you are. That’s why this friendship day, you must show your love to them with the above-written ideas. They’ll surely melt your BFF’s heart.
