    Whether you have been besties since kids building sandcastles together or maybe you bonded over drinks at college or university – your BFF is always so important!

    Everyone needs good friends around them. And if you’re lucky enough to have a few close friends that you know you can rely on and have fun together, then you should be sure to cherish each other forever. 

    Unlike with your other half, you probably don’t actually tell your friends enough how much they do mean to you. They’ve been your partner in crime, wingman, shoulder to cry on – you’ve probably made tonnes of amazing memories together over the years.

    So why stop there? On the 30th of July 2022, people all over the world are going to be celebrating International Friendship Day with the best mates in their life! If you’d like to join in, here are a few of our top affordable ways to spend time together. 

    Go for a Hike

    It’s summer, and we’re surprisingly having a decent summer so far. So why not make the most of it and take a day out in the fresh air together?

    This can be a great way to spend quality time with your friends and to have a good ol’ catch-up. It’s also a very affordable day out, and good for your health, too!

    Have a DIY Spa Day

    If you’re not really a hiking kind of person, then how about a bit of R&R instead?

    Spa days can be expensive, we know. But there’s nothing stopping you from bringing the spa day home! Simply get some matching PJs or dressing gowns – then enjoy some pampering such as face masks, hair treatments, or a mini foot spa. 

    Cook a Nice Meal

    Are you and your bestie massive foodies? If so, then there should be only one way you’re celebrating your friendship!

    As above, dining out at restaurants can be pretty expensive. But if you have a favourite meal or cuisine that you both enjoy, then you could easily have a go at replicating it at home. You could make your own tapas feast and eat al fresco, or rustle up some of your best pasta!

    Enjoy a Movie Night

    Bring the cinema home with a super cosy movie night at home!

    Whether you decide to reminisce on one of your old classics from when you were kids that you both loved, or whether you just want to find the latest blockbuster on Netflix – a movie night is always a good idea. Just be sure not to forget the popcorn! 

    Do Karaoke At Home

    If letting your hair down and having a good singalong is a bit more of your and your bestie’s thing – then get the mics out and do karaoke at home!

    If you’ve done this before, then you’ll already know how much fun you’ll have. Paired with a bottle of wine for a bit of Dutch courage and you can’t go wrong! If you don’t have a karaoke machine then don’t panic, just find your favourite song in a karaoke version on YouTube and whip out your hairbrushes for your microphone!

    Go Camping

    Do you and your friends love being in the great outdoors? If so, there’s no better night away than a fun-filled camping trip. 

    Grab your BBQ, card games, and blankets and enjoy a day adventuring followed by a night under the stars laughing, chatting, and just enjoying each other’s company. 

    Visit a Zoo or Museum

    Do you fancy having a proper venture out somewhere together to make new memories? 

    Why not bond over animals or historical artefacts at a zoo or museum? Just a quick look on TripAdvisor and you’ll be able to find all of the best-rated experiences close to you!

    Make Your Own Cocktails

    Are you and your friends' party animals at heart? We all know how expensive a night out on the town can cost. So do it at home instead!

    Have a look online for the recipes of your favourite cocktails, head to the shops for all of the equipment and ingredients you need and get shaking! This can be a much more affordable way to enjoy drinks together, and if the weather’s good then enjoy them in the garden.

    Have a Games Night

    Last but not least, a games night between friends could be a hilarious night for you all.

    Whether you whip the classic board games out such as Monopoly or fancy a game of cards – this can be a super easy and cheap way to spend time together and forget about the rest of the world. To make it a bit more exciting, throw in some drinking games, too!
