id you know there’s an entire day dedicated to your friends? Friendship Day is an increasingly popular holiday destined to become the next Valentine’s Day.
International Friendship Day is officially recognized by the United Nations on July 30, and it’s also prominently celebrated in South American countries such as Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay, and Peru (Spanish: Diá del Amigo; Portuguese: Dia do Amigo) on the first Sunday in August.
If you want to plan a celebration of your own, we’ve got some ideas to get you started:
A busy career can often get in the way of a friendly gathering, but this Friendship Day, make getting together a priority. The holiday acts as an excellent excuse to plan a picnic, brunch, trip to the movies, or just enjoy an activity in the company of your friends. Even meeting up for a few hours is a great way to show your friends you care about them.
More specifically, everyone tends to bond over a great meal. Friendship Day could be an excuse to host a picnic or dinner party that gets people together. You can even make it a potluck to help spark conversations. Not into cooking? No problem. Go out and book a group table at a new restaurant and share the experience together.
Anytime is a good time to give the gift of music, but this Friendship Day, it’ll make it all the more special. We recommend gifting an LG Music Flow Portable Bluetooth Speaker. With its simple, portable design, the speaker can go almost anywhere and everywhere. Also, despite its size, it delivers big, rich sound that can hit every note of their favorite tunes.
This isn’t just a holiday to celebrate close-knit friends. Why not use the day as an excuse to rekindle a relationship that just grew apart over time? This is easier now more than ever with the prominence of social media. It could be as simple as a wall post or instant message. You could even snap an Instagram or Snapchat with a direct message to an old friend if you want to get more creative. Trust us, they’ll feel very appreciated and delighted you took the effort to reach out.
