Giving a sentimental gift to a friend is a way to show your friend how much the friendship means to you. Personalize the gift for the friend to create a token or memory your friend can treasure for years.
Personalizing a gift creates a one-of-a-kind present for your friend. A favorite photo of the two can be placed in a frame engraved with your names, a quote about friendship or an inside joke. Or, have the photo imprinted onto a pillow or tee shirt, or set in an engraved key chain. If you have a lot of photos of you and your friend together, create a scrapbook and fill it with memories and friendship quotes, or a 12-month calendar with a different photo for each month.
Show your friend you've been listening by taking him to a movie or art exhibit only he wants to see, or to his favorite restaurant. Taking your friend to places that are favorite haunts of his is a gesture of friendship that is usually appreciated.
Friendship bracelets aren't just for kids. Purchase two sophisticated, matching bracelets that you both can wear to show your friendship. Engrave the bracelets with a quote about friendship or other personal saying. Give your friend a book of quotes about friendship a handwritten note or dedication from you. Create a mixed CD or play list of songs that remind you of your friend and the good times you've shared. Give your friend a jar or container filled with slips of paper. Write a note on each piece of paper that includes what you love about your friend, inspirational quotes and thoughts on friendship.
Show You Care
Create a relaxation basket. Include a candle, flowers, scented soaps, chocolates and a favorite movie. Write a personal note to telling your friend you're always there for her. Include a "coupon" to cook, clean or take the kids for a day.
