Here are 5 Other Ways To Celebrate International Friendship Day!

Friend call

Give Them A Ring

The last time you spoke to your friend who doesn’t live close to you may be months or years ago. Hearing a very familiar voice on International Friendship Day is a good way to brighten each other’s day. For some, it may feel awkward to call out of the blue, but the awkwardness would fade immediately after hearing the first laughs. It won’t really hurt to let someone know you remember them.

Taking Notes


Send Them Thoughtful Notes and Messages

  Write on a card, postcard-- or a sticky note-- and let them know how much you care. Let them reminisce some of the best memories you had together. If writing a letter seems a bit old-fashioned, you can use social media to post your message and let the whole world know how special these people are in your life.

Friends time 

Spend Time With Them Personally

If you can spend time with them personally, do it! Choose an activity that would allow you to catch up with each other and have fun. This may differ in every set of friends. Some might prefer quiet time in a coffee shop, others may want to go for a night out party, and others would enjoy watching a concert, game or movie. 

Give Them Roses 

Roses are one of the most meaningful gifts to give to your friends. They are symbolic, timeless, and versatile. Here are some of the best flowers you can personally give or send by having them delivered for International Friendship Day!
