Female friendships can be complicated, we all know that, but when they work, when they really work, they can be the best thing ever. You can tell almost instantly when you meet someone that it destined to become your BFF; it’s just a feeling of total understanding and connection that is hard to fake and hard to beat! Whether your own best friend is someone who you have known since childhood, or someone that you only just recently met at work, you should always be looking for ways to show them how much you love them. Here are some great ways to show appreciation to your BFF.
1. Special Gift
You have probably been shopping together a million times, and you will have noticed at least one thing that she craves but can never justify buying for herself. Well, step up and show her just how much you love her by surprising her with that very item! She will feel super appreciated and treasured.
2. Snail Mail
Any chump can send a text or tag someone in a Facebook meme, but you can show your BFF that you appreciate her even more by making the effort to send her some good old fashioned snail mail! It makes a pleasant change from the bank statements and junk that we all usually receive, and it just feels that little more special to get something handwritten delivered.
Show her how much you appreciate her in a way that keeps on giving in the form of a subscription. It could be for a publication, it could be for a beauty box, or it could be any other kind of cool loot box that are all the rage right now. The great thing about subscription boxes is that there is literally something out there for everyone!
If you want to show her how much you appreciate her, then why not check off a few things that she has lying around on her to-do list? Sometimes showing love and appreciation can be as simple taking the pressure off and doing little things like the washing up, the weekly shop or returning that bunch of library books that are dangerously close to be overdue. Anything you can do to free up some rest and relaxation time for your BFF.
5. Plan a Day
Plan a surprise day of fun and treats that the two of you can enjoy together. It doesn’t have to be anything crazy, just a day of fun that she has no idea about. The element of surprise is the first positive, and then everything that comes after the initial surprise makes the day feel even more special.
6. Date Night
Make a commitment to keeping a regular weekly date night with your BFF. In times of stress and bad periods, this regular date night can be a thing that both of you look forward to, a guaranteed few hours of laughter and happiness even when other areas of life are getting you down.
