5 Low-Cost Ways to Celebrate your BFF

Best friends are like extended family members that God has blessed us with for the duration of our lives. It’s only fitting that you celebrate your BFF! Our BFFs love us in spite of our flaws, and they appreciate our strengths and life wins. Celebrating a best friend is like celebrating an extension of you, so it should be nothing short of fun and exciting!

Let’s face it, a girl’s best friend is the one person they can turn to no matter what. Whether near or far, there are always ways to celebrate the bestie in your life. Don’t worry if you find yourself out of fresh fun ideas…check out these five low-cost ways to celebrate your BFF! 

#1 Themed Movie Night 

We all have that one movie we can watch a million times over. A fun, unique way to celebrate your best friend is creating a movie night with their favorite movie and a theme surrounding it. For instance, if one of their favorite movies is Legally Blonde, then maybe having pink colored snacks and drinks such as starburst, cotton candy and pink lemonade will help you enjoy it.

Maybe they have a favorite TV series, such as Game of Thrones. You can provide food that’s similar to what they eat in the show. Very affordable and such a thoughtful way to celebrate someone who you care for!

#2 Have a Picnic 

Pending weather conditions, you can plan to have a picnic indoors or outdoors. The options are limitless as long as you have the essentials: drinks, snacks and music. Picnics are a great way to enjoy some quality time with your bestie while still being able to give them their flowers. With all the hustle and bustle life throws at us, it’s nice to just sit down and enjoy some quality time.

Picnics are a great and affordable way to celebrate your BFF because you can literally have it anywhere: the park, the beach, or in your living room. If you plan to bring food that will remain outdoors for several hours, choose foods that won’t wilt, melt, or spoil easily in the warmer weather conditions. Be sure to clear your schedules and enjoy some nice overdue girl chat.

#3 Enjoy Nature 

This is probably one of the most cost-efficient ways to not only celebrate your best friend but also get some fitness in. Enjoying nature is so relaxing and a perfect way to relax and unplug. We are always so plugged in with our devices that nature forces us to just be present – given some hike trails don’t have reception.

From a stroll through a city park to a day spent hiking the nearby trails, exposure to nature has been linked to so many benefits – which you and your BFF can soak in! When enjoying nature, you’re able to be in the moment and make memories with your bestie. Celebrating does not always mean spending a lot of money. If your best friends’ love language is quality time, then this is the perfect way to celebrate them. 

#4 Wine Tasting 

Wine tasting is one of the coolest things you can do to celebrate a BFF (or anyone)! Between tasting new wines or enjoying your favorite ones, some venues are listed on Groupon for a discounted price. Pull your best friend’s favorite wines and prepare a flight of tasting right in your home, paired with a curated charcuterie board with all their go-to snacks to munch on.

Believe it or not, there is no better moment than to see your bestie find joy while experiencing a moment that you created specifically for them. Alternatively, if you prefer to drink in the comfort of your home, you can create your own wine tasting at home. 

#5 Champagne Brunch

Popping bottles to celebrate a member of your tribe is always a classic vibe. It doesn’t matter if you decide to do bottomless at a venue or in your backyard, as long as you have the bubbles to enjoy! There’s something about a champagne brunch that elevates it to a more classy, sophisticated level.

Serving champagne during a brunch creates a more festive atmosphere to help celebrate your bestie in a way different than the rest. In addition to champagne, you can mix it with a splash of orange juice or peach nectar so the person of the hour can enjoy mimosas and Bellinis. Or, have a little fun and mix it with your own juice of choice – there are no rules to this brunch fun.
