Having a “best friend” is a fortunate thing and you want to show appreciation. Whether the person is a life long friend since childhood or someone you met later in life, regardless, this person is an important part of your life and brings you great joy and happiness. A perfect way to celebrate National Friends Day on June 8th is to send a fresh flower bouquet from Bussey’s Florist. We have fresh and festive National Best Friends Day Flowers.

The history behind the origination of this day is that in 1935 Congress decided this was a significant enough cause to declare June 8th as National Friends Day. In addition, Congress wisely selected the summer season as the best time to desiginate this special day. This season is typically the best time weather wise and schedule wise for people to celebrate.

Reasons for celebrating National Best Friends Day are pretty obvious. These people are special in your life and you want them to know you appreciate them. However, like many other occasions or life events, there are some research studies that indicate there are health reasons for celebrating.

For example, studies have shown that 22% of people have a longer live span when they have a group of close friends. Of course there is a relationship to depression and anxiety as people who spend time with their friends generally have less of these issues.

There are many ways to celebrate with a friend for National Best Friends Day and many things you can do to make them feel special. Below are a few:

Send Flowers – Obviously our favorite. Our Floral Designers have created beautiful bouquets that are sure to brighten anyone’s day!

Send a Card – Cards are always a welcome thing to receive. Plus a handwritten note means you took the time to express your feelings about the deep friendship you share.

Phone Call –  In today’s fast paced world with Social Media and Texting, taking the time to call someone directly can mean so much. Take the time to call your best friend and let them know you are thinking about them.

Meet for Coffee – Contact you friend and set up a time to meet at the local Coffee Bar. Laugh and reminisce or just talk about what is going on in your lives. If coffee is not a favorite, there is always brunch, lunch or dinner.

Gift Surprise – Even the smallest gift means you took the time to shop for your best friend.

Post a Photo – Regarding Social Media, there are plenty of platforms where you can post a favorite photo of you and your best friend. Maybe it is at a place you both shared great memories like a beach vacation, cruise or wedding etc.
