Help A Friend

We all know that some days are harder than others, sometimes all it takes to make things easier is a little pick-me-up from a friend. Here’s a list of 5 easy things that are guaranteed to put a smile on someone’s face and make you and your friend’s day brighter!

1. The easiest thing of all is something totally free, a hug!
It sounds simple but when you’re having a tough day it can be just the thing to make your friend feel loved.

2. Send them a letter in the mail.
A letter you say?! What is this the 20th century? Although it may not be technologically advanced, that extra bit of effort and the joy of opening a freshly sealed envelope will be a sure winner! And for that extra touch make your own envelope, check out this tutorial to find out how.

3. Bake them some cookies!
Here’s a great choc-chip cookie recipe from the blog Butter Baking. Or if you are feeling like something a little different try this chocolate fudge recipe from Brown-Eyed Baker.

4. Throw an afternoon tea in their honour! It doesn’t have to be anything too fancy, just invite your friend around and surprise her by having cups of tea and biscuits ready.

5. Make a friendship bracelet.
You can either learn how to make them together or you could go ahead and make one as a little present. Below is a video tutorial about how to tie a square knot that you can make into a bracelet.

These of course are just a few ideas you could do for a friend, but really you can be as creative as you like!
