5 Gifts for the Far-Away Friend

      1 Comment on 5 Gifts for the Far-Away Friend

As someone who has lived in multiple places, both far and wide, I have friends that are all over the country world. While many of us don’t exchange gifts, sometimes it’s fun to surprise a friend with a little reminder that you care, even if you’re miles apart.

1 – Starbucks gift card – whether you tweet them a gift or stick it in a loving card, this is a great way to tell them you care and let them treat themselves to their favorite drink!

2 – Stocking filled with fun things – last year I bought a small stocking and filled it with nail polish, an ornament and a few other things. It fit perfectly in a small package and was sent to one of my best friends. Money was tight but this was the perfect little gift.

3 – SpaFinder gift card – the gift of relaxation that someone can use in multiple spas across the country – can you go wrong?

4 – Flowers/Plants – 1800Flowers exists for a reason!

5 – JibJab card – they’re fun, funny, and are sure to bring a smile to their face! (My dear friend Amy, she never saw it coming…) 😉


What are your favorite gifts to send friends or family who are far away?
