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.
Have fun with virtual games and quizzes
Spice up your Zoom catch-ups with some competitive fun! Lockdown has led us to uncover a glut of activities to enjoy apart, from playing virtual versions of popular card games, challenging each other to see who can name the most Disney characters in 7 minutes, and working together in collaborative game apps like Among Us.
Watch a movie together
While not quite the same as hanging out in person, there are several sites, like the popular Netflix Party, that will let you and your friends watch a film from online streaming services in sync with one another while you chat. Stick on an old favourite and enjoy the nostalgia trip or discover something new together by trying one of the latest releases.
