A Weekend Away
This idea will need some saving and some forward-planning! But, if you’re committed, it will blow their mind. First off, you might need to get them the time off work. Speak to their boss or manager directly, and ask them for the time off on their behalf. As it is for a special occasion, they’ll probably be happy to keep the secret. Then you can start planning! Look online for special deals. Some places do 2 for 1 offers, meaning that’s only half of the price each. If your mate needs to relax, treat them to a spa day and meal. If they need a bit of excitement, do something to get their heart-pounding. You could look at Segway obstacle courses or paintballing for example. Or, if you live near a theme park, take them there and stay in a hotel afterwards. You’ll be making memories to last a lifetime.
If they need some luxury…
A Luxury Product
Is your best friend always picking out the most expensive items when you go shopping, but can’t afford them? That means you friend is a lover of luxury; even if they don’t realise it themselves! Consider something they use often, and see if you can upgrade it for them. Their phone and laptop will probably be out of your price range- and reach! But what about smaller items? Do they use a vape pen? The get them some pure xtc vape juice. They’re only made with high-quality ingredients and come in a range of tasty flavours. Plus, you’re helping them stay away from their cigarettes- bonus!
If they need a break…
Get Their House Cleaned
Now, this one is a bit out there, but don’t skip ahead just yet! Rather than giving them the gift of an experience or a product, give the gift of time! After all, you can’t put a price on it. If your friend lives in a flat or house that they’re always cleaning and tidying, this is perfect. Hire a local cleaner to come and clean the house from top to bottom. Make sure they do the hard and unpleasant bits, like the oven and the toilet. You could even do it as a surprise by taking your friend out for the day while the clean is taking place.
It might not be the most glamorous gift but it could well be the most appreciative your best friend has ever been. You’re showing your friend that you know how hard she works and think that she deserved a break. And you’re giving her the chance to avoid cleaning the oven for at least another month. He or she will love you forever for that one!
