International Friendship Day is on 5th August. What a wonderful way to celebrate the good times you’ve shared with your friends and to show them how much you appreciate them. Spend time with those who make you laugh and support you when you’re feeling low, or maybe it’s a time to re-connect with long lost friends from school. However you celebrate, wouldn’t it be nice to get some special gifts for those you appreciate?
The CIJ team have selected some gifts that they know your friends would love.

The best friend is someone really important. This person deserves a large and valuable gift. But if you want to make a small surprise, I suggest a small oil painting. Perhaps your best friend is an animal lover or dreams about a pet or maybe not. But always a dog is a perfect symbol of friendship. A miniature oil painting will be perfect for this occasion. If you need another pet portrait, please visit my shop. You can also order a portrait from your own photos.

Bestie, BFF, pal, peep, soulmate, kitty or pup, best friends come in all forms. They make us laugh, help us cry, helped make us who we are, and will never be forgotten. From your little furry tail-wagging pal, to your husband or wive, your perfect bridesmaid, or your bestie who is miles away, Etsy Christmas in July has a great selection of best friend gifts.

The dog is the symbol of the best friend and many people love dogs and have their pets. Portrait of your favorite pet is a perfect gift to express friendship. This is a very good gift for every occasions and souvenir for many years. I paint oil paintings and draws as well. Today I want to present my offer of Pet portraits – large size pastel drawing the whole silhouette on the scenic background!

Best friends are always together near or far. I think the beauty of a best friend is being able to feel connected to them when you have not talked or seen them in a long time.
Candles are a great way to show your best friend you are thinking of them while you are not together! A bff candle allows the flame to still go strong when the other is not in the room and lets your friend know you are always there!
Gifts that can be both useful and appreciated are the best ways to express thoughtfulness in gift giving and an understanding of your friend’s needs. We have the perfect gifts to make a house a home, with personalization.
Choose any of the products we have available depending on your best friend’s needs and personalize your purchase using any of our designs, the fonts we have available, or submit your own images to turn your gift into a personalized keepsake to be treasured and put to good use in good company.

Thank you for this opportunity to share my bff craft.
We all need a friend or two whom we can call our ride or die. So to me friends are like flowers they grow with each passing day and when you find a gem like this, you end up picking them over and over again!
Best Friend Lanyard And Keychain
My best friend loves dragonflies so I thought it was only fitting to let her inspire me to create this scarf pendant. Dragonflies have been a subject of intrigue going way back in time. I find this fitting for my best friend. She too intrigues me! I think all best friends seem to have an intriguing or fascinating quality that draws us together.
The fascinating thing about this scarf pendant though is that the floral button is interchangeable! Simply replace it with any other special snap button (which can be purchased separately in many jewelry stores) and you have a whole new look resting on top of the dragonfly! Now that is intriguing!

For many, their life-long best friend is their mother. When we sadly lose our best friend, she leaves a gap in our lives that can never be replaced. The butterfly is recognised as a symbol of hope, and with my iridescent butterfly plant decoration, I include this poem…
“A butterfly lights beside us like a sunbeam, and for a brief moment, its glory and beauty belong to our world. But then it flies again, and though we wish it could have stayed, we feel lucky to have seen it.”
