I was just wondering if anyone had any suggestions of a special gift that I could buy my best friend to show her how much she means to me and how her being there for me has helped me so very very much.. As all of you know I lost my babygirl 3 months ago and My best friend of 15+ years in my book has gone over and beyond the duty of friendship not only was she there to talk to the night it happend but she has been there every step of they way..I know that is the type of person she is as we are always there for one another.. She has spend countless number of hours a day listening to me go on and on about my baby and how much I miss her and wish she was here has given me a shoulder to cry on I could not have made it through these last 3 months without her she has helped me get to a part of my grieving that I'm almost at peace now with her death and I haven't needed any outside help with counceling because I feel like I have been stuck in one stage of the process... I want to buy her something that shows her how much she means to me any suggestions?

My suggestion would be to make her something instead of buying her a gift. I would do this because I feel that something that you have made, and poured your heart into, is much more thoughtful than a store bought gift. Whatever you do decide to do for your friend, I am sure that she will love it, and my condolences on your loss.

That is a great idea...Will have to put some thought into it though as I don't think of myself as very creative lol thanks for the condolences on my loss it's getting easier as each day passes.

You can buy beautiful crystal beads and beading wire and nice clasps at a crafting store and maker her a very thoughtful and beautiful gift. A bracelet, a watch, a necklace...all up to you. That is something that is handmade, beautiful, and can be worn so when she looks at it, she can think of you and your feelings for her.

First I would like to say that I am so sorry about your baby. My family and I have been there. Now as far as the gift goes. I don't think there is anything you could buy that can say all that you want it too. If I were you I would use your God - given talent to tell her how much you love her. Like me I love to cook and write. So I would make her dinner (maybe doesn't sound that special but it would come from my heart) or I would write her a special poem. If you do buy her something it should be something she needs or really wants. Sometimes new bed sheets or more helpful to a person than just something that you thought would be pretty. I hope that made sense and good luck.

I'm sorry about your loss Blue Angel. My heart is heavy at the news. If you need a gift idea I would suggest making something, or spending time doing something your friend wants to do. Sometimes those make the best gifts. If you need something else, I would suggest matching necklaces (nothing expensive) but something so you can keep one and your friend can keep the other. (This is what me and a childhood friend did). You can also do this with doves since they represent peace, friendship, tranquility and hope. You get a pair of them, and give one to your friend. Keep your dove close and tell your friend to keep the dove closeby. That way you have a physical reminder of the friend, the closeness you share and a reminder that your friend is with you heart, mind and soul. I wish you the best Blue :)

Thank you so much. I'm rather partial to the dove so if my other help posts mention the dove or birds, at least you know why:) Have a nice one Blue.

I can see why birds and doves to me are very peaceful and loving so it's a really sweet idea smiles

Like previous friends you can make any thing by your self to make your friend feel how you became tired to make him or her happy.Thats what I think to make.Thats better than paying any thing.

I'm really really sorry to hear about your baby,,..that is so heartbreaking.,,Be strong,,okay...For your best friend,,she must be a very very good friend,,.my suggestion is,,you could buy her a white gold necklace with a pendant that says "For a very best friend" written on it,,it could come in a shape of heart, or just round..,,she could keep it her whole life (unless she lost it)...

I think one of the best gift is a simple letter which say how much he or she means to you.A lot of times we missed out say the right words to our best friends. And when she heard this, It makes her cry...

You are luck,you have such a good freind. Maybe you could make something for her by yourself. Or, you can do something that she want to do before, to make her dreams come true.

Your thoughts appear very touching and moving about your friend and I am sorry to hear that you lost your 3 months' old baby. I think, if you know about your friend's choice, you can buy her either some gold jewellary or a beautiful good looking dress. But I think, whatever she has done to you that just cannot be repaid through presenting her a gift, in her hour of need, you will have to reciprocate, whatever she has done to you. I wish that everyone should have a good and supportive friend as you have. You should feel lucky to have her as your dear friend.

So that's why my ears have been ringing and felt like they are on fire! You 2 have been talking about me! Shame on you both hehehe! I know you appreciate me being there for you hun, you don't need to buy me something. I know if the roles were reversed you would have been there for me, it all goes along with the "rules" of friendship.
