Today is national best friends day! There’s no denying that friendship has been vital in helping us through the tough year we have all had. What better way to celebrate best friends day than to show them the appreciation they deserve!
Now that we can safely meet with our friends, we have put together a list of fun activities you can do with your bestie to show them how much you appreciate them!
Plan a date day
Who said dates have to be just for romantic relationships! Friend dates can be just as fun and are the perfect way to celebrate your friendship. Whether you decide to take a trip to the zoo, go for a lovely lunch or a trip to the cinema, spending a day doing the things you love together seems like a great idea to us!
Have a chick-flick movie night
Who doesn’t love a good old chick flick! Grab a load of your favourite snacks, and create a line-up of rom-coms to watch. If you’re struggling for ideas – check out this article where we list some of the best rom-coms to watch for any ocassion.
If you can’t be with your best friend this best friends day, why not send a bunch of beautiful flowers to let them know you are thinking of them. Make your bunch of flowers personal by adding a personalised message and making sure that the flowers are suited to their favourite colour.
Organise a surprise
Why not surprise your best friend with a fun gift or event! Make plans to tell your friend so they are not expecting anything! The thoughtfulness of organising a special surprise for your friend is the perfect way to show your appreciation. Your surprise will also help you to create amazing memories together.
Post an appreciation post
Why not acknowledge your friendship by sharing a photo on Instagram alongside a caption dedicated to your friend! If you’re stuck for ideas here are some great friendship quotes that would make perfect friendship appreciation captions.
Make a scrapbook of your friendship
There are so many memories we make with our besties, and what better way to remember them than by creating a scrapbook, filled with photos and memoirs! You can even create a chronological scrapbook – so you can relive every moment of your friendship, from the day you met to the present day. Take a trip to your local arts and crafts store together and spend the day creating your scrapbooks together.
Create a joint playlist
Be sure to include all of your favourite songs you love to sing at the top of your lungs together. Play your playlist in the kitchen or in the car, whenever you are in need of a pick-me-up or just in the mood for a good singalong crank up the playlist and enjoy!
Book a class together
This can be any form of exercise class such as yoga, Zumba or spin. Or, if exercise isn’t your thing why not book a pottery class to get creative! Either way, you will be spending quality time together and making memories along the way.
DIY spa day
Treat your bestie to a relaxing day by bringing the spa home! Set the scene by lighting some candles, playing some spa music and supplying lots of face masks and skincare treatments. This is a fun way to relax and unwind – without spending a fortune. Don’t forget the cucumber slices!
Bake their favourite treat
What better way to show your best friend you know them than to bake them their favourite sweet treat. You can even make it more special by making an afternoon tea. Get your hands on some cake stands, make a selection of sandwiches, brew some tea and add your baked goods and there you have your very own homemade afternoon tea!
We hope you have fun celebrating this best friends day – whatever you may be doing!
