Friends. What would we do without them, hey? Though they may not always be physically there, they are always there. And though we may not have been able to see them as much as we’d like over the past year or so, it’s made us appreciate them more than ever.
This Friday, 30th July was national friendship day, but we think they should be celebrated and cherished every day. So we’ve put together some wonderful little goodies perfect for reminding your loved ones how much you care. If you feel like doing that, then read on for some inspiration.When it comes to friends and showing sentiment, East of India is the one. There’s so many lovely, meaningful quotes on various little trinkets to choose from. Whether it’s the classic hanging hearts, coasters, candles or the newest mini matchbox tokens, we’re sure you’ll find something to hit the spot. Getting a friend one of these fabulous little Erstwilder pins with witty, sweet messages on would make for a lovely little gift too. It’ll be something for them to pop on a bag or jacket so that they can carry it around with them all the time. We all love a good ‘cuppa & catch up’. If it’s a friends birthday coming up, you could gift them a gorgeous Asta Barrington tray with their favourite drink on, or perhaps just a word you both love. Then serve up your drink and treat of choice on it to add that touch more fun to your meet-ups!
Finally, if you’re not too fussed about gifts but just want to send them something to show some love, why not just pop a card in the post. We’ve got funny ones or sweet ones but each says that you care in its own little way. Our personal current fave is the Emma bridgewater ‘soul sisters’ card.
Whether it'll be a gift, card or just a text or phone call, let your nearest and dearest know how much you love them this World Friendship Day. Of course we should do it all the time anyway, but if this is a good excuse then we say take it.
