When was the last time you went to a movie with your friends? When was the last time you talked on the phone rather than using WhatsApp or Facebook? If you can’t remember the answer to these two questions or aren’t happy with them, its time you revive your friendship on August 2, 2019, and celebrate the National Friendship Day.
Here are 10 innovative ways to celebrate National Friendship Day and add a new life to your friendships.
- Thank a Friend
It would be great to start your day with some gratitude. Call your friends and tell them how thankful you are to have them in your life.
- Find a Friend
Friendship day is the perfect day to find an old friend and reconnect with them. If you can’t find an old one, make a new one!
- Have a Tech-Free Day
The best way to spend friendship day is to have a tech-free day with your pals. Leave your smartphone, smartwatch or laptops at home and go somewhere you can enjoy.
- Plan an Activity
Be it watching a movie or going for a hike, pick an activity, and do something special on this special day.
- Organize a Barbeque
If you are blessed and have too many friends who all must be celebrated then you can organize a barbeque at home. This is an awesome way to introduce your friends with each other (like college friends to work friends) and forge some new friendships!
- Stay Awake
Relive your childhood with your besties by planning a night out with your buddies. You can be a child again and have a board game night or have a fun-filled slumber party.
- Buy a Gift or Make One
Surprise your friend and thank them for being there for you by buying them a gift they always wanted. If money is a problem, you can make a gift at home (dig in for DIY skills). The latter would be much appreciated!
- Relive the Memories
Spend time with your friends looking at old photographs and remember the fun you had. Reliving old memories might motivate you to create some new ones.
- Volunteer Together
If you want to spread happiness this friendship day, do that by volunteering with your friends and give back to society. The sense of satisfaction you get from the act will deepen your bond.
- Shop Together
Go on a shopping trip and buy stuff for each other. Have some mementos like same clothes or friendship bands to remind you of how much you love each other.
Here’s an add-on tip, share a hug with your bestie, and spread the warmth from one heart to the other.
