National Best Friends Day
National Best Friends Day,Let’s face it. In an on-the-go society, many people lead hectic, stressful lives. But today is a day to take a moment of your busy schedule and celebrate that very special, one-of-a-kind person in your life – your best friend. Today is National Best Friend Day, or Best Friend’s Day. This annual "holiday" is observed each year on June 8th although some celebrate the special day on August 15th.
While there are holidays for just about every occasion under the sun, today’s holiday serves as an important reminder to do something special for that very special person in your life. You know the one – the person who has been there through good times and bad. The person who supports you no matter what. That super-loyal, amazing person who knows all your flaws and dirty little secrets but still loves you despite it all.
In honor of National Best Friend Day, take a moment out of your day to remind that special person in your life just how much you value and appreciate him or her.
How to Celebrate Best Friend Day
Make her a batch of her favorite cookies or dessert.
Invite your BFF out to lunch, dinner or drinks. No kids, no significant other – just the two of you.
Surprise your BFF with a bouquet of flowers – hand-picked or store-bought.
Wash his or her car.
Write a heartfelt note telling your BFF how much he/she means to you.
Rent a few of his or hers favorite flicks, whip up a few snacks and have a few beverages on hand and make it movie night!
If that gal pal has been oohing and aaahing over a piece of jewelry you love to wear, surprise her with one just like it!
Make an appointment for the both of you to get a relaxing massage, mani or pedicure!
Offer to watch her kids and let her have the evening/day off!
Have a sleepover. You don’t have to be 16 to enjoy a slumber party! Get a few of your favorite bottles of bubbly, some tasty treats and just hang out in your favorite PJs.
Don’t forget the card! Include one or two of the quotes and sentiments perfect for your best friend.
