National Best Friends Day: Honoring Friendships Old & New

What is a best friend? She’s your go-to gal. The one you call to dish the drama or rant about work. She’s the person you call first when you’re in trouble and who helps you laugh through the tears. Best friends are close to sisters at times and they deserve all the recognition. Especially after 2021, when quarantine made it even more important that you had a solid support system. Today, we’re sharing a few ways to say thanks to your BFFs - for National Best Friends Day on June 8.

  1. Write a letter - A super sweet gift for your girls who live a world away. A handwritten letter is such a meaningful way to correspond. Consider going out of your way to send a thoughtful note as a reminder that you are thinking of them, or even just a postcard.
  2. Get brunch together - Brunch is always a fun way to hang with your best gal pal or even a whole group of girls. Be sure to enjoy an extended get-together, where you can catch up on each other’s lives. While you drink all of the mimosas you can handle of course.
  3. Plan a girl’s trip - A girl’s trip is ideal for those who have a longstanding group of best friends, whether they are from school or work. It’s the perfect way to enjoy some one-on-one time with each of your friends while making memories as a group.
  4. Have a photoshoot - A best friend-themed photoshoot is such an underrated idea. This shoot can be anything you want it to be, whether you want insta-worthy shots or prefer something funny. 
  5. Send them a gift - For some people love is shown through well-thought-out gifts. If that’s you, then we’ve got you covered! Take a look at some of our curated boxes, packed with goodies that your BFF will absolutely love.
