Friendship Day and Friendship Gifts
In 1935, the US Congress decided that the first Sunday of August would be National Friendship Day. Given the times, one can understand the need for celebration and friendship. The idea of honoring friends and friendship quickly became popular, and Friendship Day became an annual event.
Friendship Day is now celebrated in several countries around the globe. While our traditions may vary from country to country, the central idea is the same: to honor our friends and to be friendly to all those with whom we come into contact.
This Friendship Day, go above and beyond for your friend, just as they have gone above and beyond for you. Write them a letter, expressing how much you appreciate their presence in your life. Invite them over for a homemade meal. Call a friend that lives out-of-town, just to catch up. Send them an e-card. Surprise them with movie tickets for a night out. Turn that night out into a “Girls Night” or “Boys Night,” and hit the town! Invite your neighbors into your home in the hopes of making new friends. Or, for a more traditional gesture, send flowers and a gift.
Find the perfect gifts with which to celebrate friends. Our Expressively Yours: Love, Friend, Forever friendship bracelet
comes with a keepsake box and card, and is a wonderful way to show a friend you care. Personalize a frame with names, dates or a special message.
Have a guy friend who isn’t into “mushy” gifts? Try our Duct Tape Roses (as seen in the Wall Street Journal) for a funky, more “macho” idea! Or give your friend one of our Friendship Pens – a solid metal pen embellished with unique lampwork beads…a gift that will continue to remind them of your friendship all year. For a more creative gift idea, check out our Little Pots for Thought ~ Friendship Flowerpot. Fill it with flowers, kitchen utensils, treats, trinkets…anything that helps tell your friend just how special she is!
