Good friends are hard to find, and so when you’ve got a good one it’s important to hang onto them. So why don’t you go out of your way and do something nice to show you care? Maybe they’ve helped you through a rough time recently and you want to say thank you, or perhaps they’re going through some stuff themselves and you want to cheer them up. Maybe you want to do something nice just because? If you’re looking to do something nice and show someone you care, here are a few ideas!
Make Them a Care Package
If they’ve recently moved house or gone off to college, you could make a ‘settling in’ package containing things like scented candles, a bottle of wine and some cute home essentials that you think they might need or like. Alternatively if someone hasn’t been feeling well you could send a care package with their favourite magazines, fluffy socks, pretty boxed tissues and their favourite tea and coffee. Alternatively you could just send a box of their favourite things just to cheer them up or say thank you. You can put these together without spending much, and then either post it to their house or deliver it in person to surprise them.
Invite Them For Dinner and Cook Their Favourite Food
A great way to show you care and to really make the effort is to invite them for dinner and cook them their favourite meal. You could set the table, get some nice wine and make an evening of it. Even if you’re not the world’s best cook it’s the thought that counts, if you’re unsure find a recipe online and follow it to the letter!
Send Them A Card or Handwritten Note
A sweet way to show someone you’ve thought about them, send a card or even just a handwritten note. Much more personal than a text or email, and is something the person can keep and treasure. If you’re buying a card you could spend some time looking for the perfect one, if you can’t find what you’re after in the shops scour places like Etsy online. You can even request one of the designers to create you a custom card so it’s exactly what you’re after.
Send Them Flowers
Who doesn’t love receiving a beautiful bunch of flowers? They brighten up your home, and are a lovely reminder every time you look at them that someone has thought about you. Nice flowers can be expensive, so check out Interflora offers at PlusVoucherCode so you can get the best bunch for your budget. Have them delivered straight to their door to instantly put a smile on their face.
Spend Time With Them
You could treat them to a day out doing something they enjoy, or simply spend the day together watching movies on Netflix, eating ice cream and chatting. If it’s been far too long since you had a proper catch up, make the effort to spend some time with them. If you’re not able to be there in person, arrange a proper phone call or Skype chat.
