Friendship and Gift Giving Ideas

“We've got this gift of love, but love is like a precious plant. You can't just accept it and leave it in the cupboard or just think it's going to get on by itself. You've got to keep watering it. You've got to really look after it and nurture it.” ~ John Lennon    Gift giving is one way to nurture a friendship, however buying the perfect gift for a good friend can tough, especially for longtime friends. You don't want to give them just anything, and you want to make sure it’s something they’ll enjoy for years to come. The gift needs to be unique, personal, and meaningful.  The key is knowing your friend well enough to give something they will love. If you have friends that like jewelry, some of these ideas might suit their personality:    Friendship Bracelets: These used to be something young girls gave to their BFFS but the concept has grown up and can work with any age friend! Bracelets come in many styles with crystals, pearls, or link chains, and can be further personalized with a charm that contains your friend's name or initial.  Our single stone or 3 stone gemstone Beksan Designs bracelets could be a perfect friendship bracelet! Jewelry with Gemstones:  Does your friend have a favorite gemstone? At Beksan Designs, we offer a variety of gemstones set in different metals.  Maybe it is a sapphire, ruby, agate, mother of pearl, or their birthstone.  Find out what gemstone(s) are meaningful to your friend and select a ring, bracelet, necklace, or earrings accordingly.  That is sure to make her feel special!  Check out our gemstone jewelry at Scarves: We can’t tell you how many times we’ve heard our scarf customers say after selecting one, “This is perfect for my friend.”  It could be the colors, style, or the way it matches their personality. That is so rewarding for us to hear!  The gift of a scarf is a great way to show you care and we have a variety of scarves to choose from. Cards: In today’s technology world, a handwritten note to tell your friend you care, are thinking of them, or appreciate them is one of the best ways toenhance your friendship and costs next to nothing. It's all about the time and thought involved that make these cards special. Memory Journal and Photo: A handwritten journal where you record your favorite friendship moments is another gift your friend will love for years to come. A framed photo of the two of you with some thoughts written around the photo also makes a great gift! An "all about you" basket: Your friend is unique and creating a personal gift basket that reflects their individual personality will make them feel special. For example, if your pal enjoys golfing, you can make a “golf basket”, a sleeve of balls, a book of golf tips, “Best golf courses list”, etc. A signed copy of a book from a favorite author can be a gift item in a book lover’s ‘all about you’ basket. Gardening gloves and seed packets are perfect for someone with a green thumb. You know what your friend would like best, and making a custom basket is both fun and creative!   Gifts from Beksan Designs will please your closest friends, and we are here to help you select that perfect gift!  To make a personal shopping appointment, contact Meyla at or Nevra at!  We hope you have a wonderful Fall season!
