International Day of Friendship

July 30 is a whole day dedicated to celebrating the beautiful friendships throughout the world, otherwise known as International Day of Friendship. The day is most heavily celebrated in South African and South American countries, but is spreading in popularity. There are no set traditions in how to celebrate International Friendship Day, so here are three ways to show your friends how much you love them:

Flowers or a plant—Pick out your friend’s favorite flower or plant, like a daisy or little basil plant. It’s a simple, inexpensive gift that any friend would love.

Their favorite things—Since it’s International Day of Friendship, dedicate the day to all of their favorite things to do. Take them to their favorite restaurant, to the park or to the movies—whatever they choose.

Gift basket—If you can’t dedicate the whole day to your friendship, then create a simple gift basket with of few of their favorite things. Fill it with their favorite candy, gift card or movie.
