With National Friendship Day coming up at the end of the month, I jumped at the chance to bring you a collection of our favourite sentiments and gifts for a friend that we know will be treasured.
My daughter Lillia is 11 and at times does find it difficult to navigate the path of friendships and if any of you have daughters, you’ll remember how girls can be and what a tricky road this can be sometimes.
What I have tried to explain to her is that you go where the love is and not to try to force someone to like you, as you will in time find your tribe and when they see your light, they’ll naturally want to be a part of you... these are your people.
At 44 years, I’m lucky enough to still be best friends with my old school friend Kerry and although we live miles apart, we are still as close and share memories of our lives together that are so precious and have stood the test of time. It’s a relationship I cherish so much and even though I know she knows it, it's important that I remember to tell her regularly how much she means to me.
So if you have a special friend that you’d like to express your love and gratitude to, then why not send them one of our lovely friendship gifts from our True Sentiments Collection and make them feel special.
We have lots of gorgeous little keepsakes and sentiments that would mean the world to someone to receive as a gift. I especially love our Hanging Friendship Pictures, or our Mini Porcelain Scene - You Are The Friend. A true favourite is our Wobbly Round Heart - You Drink Too Much with the humorous quote 'You drink too much, you swear too much, you’re everything I want in a friend,’ this is also available as a coaster and makes a lovely gift.
Whatever you’re looking for, I’m sure we have something that will touch the heart of someone special, so let's celebrate our special friends this month and let them know that they mean the world to us.
Love, Tilly 🐚 x
