Friendship Gift Basket for a Faraway Friend

This is an idea I came up with for a friend, it could cost under $10 depending where you get your items. It would be best for a close friend who does not live in the same city as you do! You can also do it for a partner who is away for a long period of time. Just attach a list like this one below to explain each item.

  • Seeds: (you can get 3-4 packs at the dollar store for $1) "For our growing friendship"
  • Chocolate: "For when you need comfort"
  • Scented Candle: "For light in times of darkness"
  • Coffee Card: (with one or two coffees worth on it)"For that never ending work day!"
  • Calling Card: (you can get these for as little as $2 in a corner store or $5 online) - "For when you need to talk"
  • A small teddy bear: "For times when you need a hug"

Ending note: We may be living apart but I am always with you in spirit.
