Being someone’s BFF is not always easy or about the good times and laughter. You have to be there through the sunshine and the rain, the good times and the bad. If your BFF is going through a rough patch, perhaps they are grieving over the loss of a loved one, are sad because of a bad breakup or are suffering from poor health, you want to do whatever you can to show you are thinking of them.
Short of spending as much time as you possibly can and telling them repeatedly that you care for them and love them, you may be wondering what else you can do.
We understand how hard it can be to think of different ways to let someone know you’re thinking of them, which is why we’ve put together this post. In it you will find some lovely ideas that will help your BFF see they are not alone.
Handmade Perfumed Candles
To show you are thinking of your BFF you could make them some lightly perfumed or scented candles. Soy candles are a particularly good choice, though there are plenty of recipes online for candle making. Choose a scent you know they love and get creative with the presentation. Instead of the standard tealight-style holder, you could melt wax into a shot glass or tumbler or an ornate vase.
Make sure you send a handwritten card with it and when they see the time and effort you put into making something just for them, they will be reminded that you are in their life and be grateful that you are.
A Big Bag of Confetti
What BFF wouldn’t be delighted to open a package to find a big bag of luxury confetti? Even if they are not bowled-over with excitement with the prospect of having to clean and re-clean their place repeatedly to eventually get rid of the stuff, they will undoubtedly see the funny side. Confetti can be bought in virtually any color, so you will find it easy to pick out the best for your BFF.
Bath Bombs and Other Pampering Accessories
Give your BFF some ‘me time’ by gifting them some nice treats to enjoy in their next soak in the tub. A fizzy bath bomb is a nice way to help them unwind, especially if they have a stressful job and by selecting their favorite scents, fragrances and ingredients you will remind them just how well you know them and that you care about them.
Thinking of You Gift Basket
What could be a better way of letting your BFF know you are thinking of them than a big gift basket? Whether you opt for a simple basket design or an impressive gift tower of boxes full of tasty goodies, they are bound to get the message loud and clear that you are always there for them, no matter what. The great thing about this kind of gift is that when you next see them, you will probably get to try some of the goodies too.
