Celebrate Friendship with Sweetest Day
Friendship is such a gift- one that is easily taken for granted. Sweetest Day, always the third Saturday in October, is October 17th this year. What a great opportunity to stop and acknowledge the wonderful girlfriends in your life!
Two people are better than one,
because they get more done by working together.
If one falls down,
the other can help him up.
But it is bad for the person who is alone and falls,
because no one is there to help.
Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 (NCV)
Oh, how I learned the truth in those verses in the past several years. My friends are truly some of my sweetest blessings, and I can’t wait to celebrate them this Sweetest Day.
What woman wouldn’t love a little gift to say “You are the sweetest! Thank you for being such a great friend”?
Here’s how I created a fun and simple Sweetest Day gift.
Pick an encouraging mug from Family Christian that will remind your friend daily that she is loved. I chose this beautiful blue mug that says, “The joy of the Lord is my strength.”
Here are just of few of the other great mugs available at Family Christian:
Add individual serving size packets of her favorite hot drink- in this case hot chocolate. And of course several bars of her favorite chocolate. There is a little gift most women would love to receive on Sweetest Day!
Who will you celebrate this Sweetest Day?
A friend loves at all times
Thanks to Family Christian for providing a gift card to create this Sweetest Day gift.
I love the mugs they are so nice – Ive never heard of Sweetest Day but Im not opposed to receiving one of those wonderful mugs
I absolutely love this idea. I want to do this for teachers or friends during the holidays.
Totally love those mugs. I would claim it for myself after I bought a few to give to friends of course.
This is such an easy and lovely gift idea for Sweetest Day! Chocolate makes the perfect gift! 🙂
What a lovely gift! I would give it to my Best Friend of 35 years. I would make another sweet gift, however, as it is my son’s birthday!
What a cute gift. I would love to receive this as I enjoy chocolate very much.
What a great gift and wonderful way to show someone they’re appreciated! I know I would love to get a mug full of chocolate.
