This past year and a half has been hard on everyone in various ways but one way it was exceptionally hard for me was separation from my friends. Being apart from those I was so used to seeing frequently wasn’t easy and made it very isolating. There is only so much you can text, call… or FaceTime.
Being away from your friends when there are important life events happening for yourself, or them, makes things feel lonely and a text feels impersonal. Sometimes it’s nice to just let them know you’re thinking of them. Here are some ways to put a smile on someone’s face, a new type of care package:
Sending flowers is something we’ve all done, but Bouqs has some fantastic and trendy bouquets. They are delivered in a nice box and you can add a vase or other items. The option to do same day or next day bouquets is available which makes it nice to just send a thinking-of-you set of lilies! [I like hydrangeas, just FYI]
A lot of my friends have gotten pregnant this past year and there is nothing better than sharing some mom-to-be gift items with them so they can relax before they lose all sense of self (jk, kids are great but you don’t get time to yourself anymore) [there is truth to every joke ;)]. These pamper boxes are wonderful and are a nice gift for someone expecting.
I’ve sent a few of these recently, you can build your own kit and box, picking various themes and items that fit the friend you’re sending it to. Etsy has a lot of vendors doing boxes like this, here are just a couple I’ve liked in the past:
There is a Knack box option for all sorts of occasions and for everyone in your life. Ranging from spa boxes to alcohol pick me ups, this is a great place to find a box that fits any person in your life. Or you can create one to fit your taste and needs!
[I would just like to state to the class that I have received none of the above]
How do you show your friends you’re thinking of them? Would love to try other options!
