  1. How to celebrate Best Friends Day during lockdown

    Letter Writing

    Happy Best Friends Day! Most of us will be spending the day apart from our best friends or, if we do see them, it’ll be from six feet away, but there are still many ways we can celebrate together from a distance.

    Write a letter

    While we’ve all been video-chatting, Whatsapp-ing and staying in touch online during lockdown, sometimes it’s nice to receive something tangible from a friend in the post. Take pen to paper and write your bestie a letter to tell them all about what you’ve been up to and how you’re feeling. To make it extra special, include mementos like Polaroid or Instax photos, stickers or pressed flowers.

    Send them a gift

    If you’re not much of a wordsmith, then near or far you can still treat your BFF to something special. That’s why we’re giving you 15% off sitewide just for today (8th June 2020) – just use code FRIEND15 at checkout! Spoil your friends with their favourite fragrance or introduce them to a scent you love to let them know you’re thinking of them.
