The basic difference between friends and family is you can’t pick family. We all know that families can be fractured and are less then perfect but some friends can also be that way. But we still love them anyway. You have to take the good with the bad in any relationship. It is always a growing process and people do change. When you shop for your friends, you want to give them best gifts to show that you love them and know them well. Ideas for some great items can be found right here. Often times friends will speak their mind and share with you things that they don’t share with their own flesh and blood.
Having a close bond with a friend is a good thing and it is best to keep it honest. If you receive something that doesn’t fit you, tell your friend the truth but don’t hurt their feelings in the process. There is a way to be honest but not insulting or hurtful. It could be a good thing and she will learn more about your likes and dislikes. When giving, ask their honest opinion about the gift so when you have to buy for them again, you will know exactly what to get.
