it's one of my best friend's birthdays at the end of the week and part of her gift this year is a list of reasons why I love her. I've got this box with all her gifts in it but I'm not sure how to write up the reasons. Should I do a letter or a list or what? It sounds like a stupid question but she's done a lot for me this year and I want it to be perfect to give to her

A letter would be more formal but as it's your best friend it wouldn't really matter to much. A list with the gifts connecting why you chose them would be cute, or something like that. But, at the end of the day, its your call.

Not a letter as such, but do it as a bit of prose, like those inspirirational things on insta or pinterest; on coloured paper, bit of decoration or meaningful doodles/stickers around the edges? You could even do it to fit in a frame.

I’m gonna get a small notebook and do a page per reason, that way they’re all together but it’s still pretty informal, I know she’ll appreciate this because she’s very self critical and I wanna remind her how she’s actually great, she’s managed to help a depressed wreck like me and helped me find professionals who can help so I wanted to do something to help her for a change y’know?

You should cut up small bits of paper and put them in a jam jar with a ribbon on top

I did something similar to this for my best friend and what i did is i got a jar, which i think was just from a supermarket like Tescos etc. It was like £6 and i got lots of pieces of card and cut them up. i made 365 of them and wrote different things on them like Generous, Thoughtful, Beautiful, Funny and she would have one to open every morning for one year! Just as a little motivation each morning! And if you run out of things or can't remember you can google some things to right and choose which one suits your friend the most! Because there were thousands that described my best friend!

you could write each reasons on each small piece of coloured paper and put it in a jar or something? or you could write the reasons on polaroid pictures of you and her (: btw this is so cute, hope she has an amazing birthday!

That’s so cute I love that! I did a jar for her as a college survival kit about a month ago as we’re going to different sixth forms so I’m hesitant to use a jar again so soon, but I’ll definitely keep it in mind for future gifts

Thank you! I’ve talked to her loads since I last saw her but it’s been too long since I’ve seen her in person 😂
