Happy International Friendship Day! To celebrate Grantham College shares 4 tips on how to show your friends that you love them.

“Life without friendship is like the sky without the sun.” ~Unknown

It's International Friendship day, whether your friendships are old or new, you see each other every day or once every year, we think it’s important to celebrate your friendships. So we’ve put together a little post on how you can show your friends how much they mean to you!


Go on an adventure together

If you and your friends love spending time together but don’t get the chance to that often then why not plan in some time together to go on a new adventure. Whether it’s a fully-fledged road trip, wandering round town exploring places you don’t normally go to or trying out a new hobby; this quality time is sure to show your friend how much they mean to you!


Movie Night in

Of course Friendship doesn’t mean that you have to spend money all the time so why not try something a little closer to home. Whether you have a new DVD you’ve both been wanting to watch or you re-watch a classic on Netflix, grab some snacks and enjoy some time together.


Give them a call

A phone call goes a long way, especially if you and your friends don’t see each other that much. Picking up the phone for even just a 10 minute phone call can show your friends how much they mean to you, especially when most of us only text to communicate. You’re guaranteed to get much more of a conversation and you’ll probably end up having a good laugh together.


Simply meet for a coffee date or lunch

It may not seem like much but making just that little bit of extra time so you can sit down and have a coffee together or even lunch will show that you’re happy to spend some time with them. You’ll get to sit down and have a chat as well as tell each other any funny stories that have happened recently!
