Friends can be a part of our lives because they are there to help you out with your problems and worries but it doesn't mean that you need to give many presents for them. True friendship values more on attitude and not in material things because you are not trying to show the true you with him/her. The only and special object that I gave to my best friend was a key chain. Actually that key chain means something. It means that we have been together for almost 3 years and still our friendship keeps on going stronger and stronger. I did not spent too much with that key chain because I know that she is okay with all things she can receive.. I mean she is not that person who pick up things that she choose. Sometimes if we will see each other... I can see that she is always wearing that key chain and I know that she appreciated the gift. How about you? I would like to hear your story with your friends or with your best friend....

A gift can be something simple but special that has a meaning that values your friendship for a long time. I guess you can give her some clothes or objects like bracelet, key chain and many more. Another is try to think of an object that you both usually like .... :D

It was Christmas and I went to my best friends house for a party. She and I both loved the original book, 'Bambi, a Life in the Forest', by Felix Sslten. I was shopping and found it on the book rack. When she opened it she had tears in her eyes. I like the idea of getting and giving books of poetry and such. books are beautiful gifts! Also, if you have not read Bambi, a life in the forst, by Felix Salten, Please Do! This is not like the Disney version (though I loved the disney version), this is an excellent novel, not for children.

haven't given so much valuable to a friend although we dine a lot when were together but we give fair share of expenses for paying off our food. I agree with you, friendship is not being measured for how much you can give and how many times you spent together savoring the happiness but being there when they need you the most. I have lots of friends but only a few I considered best and I can lean on to in desperate times, I missed them and call them often and when we've got time to see each other we make sure to allocate one's interest into something that we enjoy.

That's right. We should not be selfish with others, we need to share some things to others.

I usually treat them with food, because my circle of friends are all food lovers and we often hang around eating and talking for hours.

I absolutely agree with you. Even I feel material things play the minimum most role in a friendship whose basis is purely mutual understanding and unspoken works. I do remember a gift I gave to my friend. It was a watch. He liked it. We both had tears. We were getting apart. Since then he has been a dearer friend of mine than he was anytime before. But literally I do not feel the the watch had something so special,it was the feelings attached to it which binds us.

Sometimes, even a very small piece of something can be a great significant to the one who receives it. Even a simple friendship bracelet or ballpen can be a good token as long as they really appreciate it. It will only shows that you are appreciating their efforts that are given to you.
