6 Ways to Celebrate Best Friends Day
There are a myriad of activities that you can plan and enjoy this year, and if you are looking for the perfect activity that will help you and your friends connect even further, then we are here to help. Below are many fun ideas that you can try to celebrate the day.
1. Have a Small Party
When it comes to celebrating another year of friendship, you can’t go wrong with hosting a small party where everyone can hang out, talk, and enjoy each other’s company. This can either be an improvised get-together or a pre-planned event where you create a menu of the foods you love, set up the karaoke machine, and make your favorite drinks.
While planning for the drinks, consider a BYOB (“bring your own beverage”) event, where everyone brings their own favorite concoction. This is a great idea because each friend can bring what they love to drink the most, and they can take home whatever is leftover. Plus, the host will save money by not having to buy everything. Just make sure there is enough drinkware so everyone is set to go.
2. Buy Fun and Long-Lasting Jewelry
Another way that many friends celebrate the day is by purchasing themselves or each other fun new jewelry. That could include a necklace with your names on it and the date you became friends or it could be matching rings or anything in between.
If you really want to give each other gifts that will last, then consider shopping for jewelry that you each can wear while you are out and about or when you are exercising at the gym. Sweatproof necklaces and rings that won’t easily tarnish are always a great idea. Consider going with tungsten rings that are built to last in any condition. A waterproof watch is another great idea so you can be stylish and tell the time regardless of the weather.
3. Wine Tasting
There is nothing quite as exciting and relaxing as a day spent at the winery with your friends, so consider researching the best local establishment so you can sit back and enjoy the finest new beverages. This is a great chance to get dressed up and catch up on all the things that you don’t always have time to discuss during busy workdays.
It is no coincidence that National Wine Day and Friendship Day are so close on the calendar. Many wineries also feature a great lunch menu so you can have a delicious meal to pair with your merlot.
4. Spa Day
If you are a busy mother or you have a demanding career, then consider this to be a day where you can avoid work, hire a babysitter for the kids, and just spend some quality time relaxing with your best friend. There is no better way to do that than by having a spa day.
There are so many great things to do at the spa, from enjoying a deep tissue massage or a massage with essential oils to the splendor of the perfect facial or a good sit in the sauna. Some spas even offer a “best friends package,” so research within your area and see what you find. The only thing better than being pampered is knowing that you are saving money in the process.
5. Visit a New City
If you really want to experience adventure during this special day, then consider taking a day trip to a place that you have never been before. There are many exciting cities to visit in this great country, and there are new experiences to have in everyone.
For instance, you can never go wrong with a trip to Myrtle Beach, where you can enjoy the gorgeous skyline and sit on the beach as you get that perfect tan. This city also offers plenty of places to shop, awesome live music, and you could even try riding the jet skis or going scuba diving.
Another great city is San Jose, California. Just about any city in California has perfect weather, so you have the pick of the litter. However, in San Jose, you also get a bustling restaurant scene, adventurous walking tours, and nightlife that will knock your socks off. If you have the time, consider taking a weekend trip.
6. Binge-Watch the Newest TV Show
If you and your friend want to relax on your special day, then consider sitting back and binge-watching a series that you have fallen behind on or trying the hottest new show. This is a great way to connect as you enjoy the presentation and comment on what you see. Then, as time goes on, continue to make each new episode an event every week where you watch it together, so you don’t miss a thing.
As you can see, there are many fun ways to celebrate this upcoming Best Friend's Day. Plan something special and make it a day you won’t soon forget.
