The Everyday Spruce 5 ways to be a better friend

image by Heather Young |

Heather’s theme of friendship for #TheEverydaySpruce this week, particularly her ideas for 5 ways to be a better friend, has really got me thinking…

Birthdays are something I’ve got particular bad at remembering…I used to have a book with each month & a slip for cards – goodness knows what happened to that! – but it definitely helped in the organisation stakes, which is why I’m loving Heather’s DIY Birthday Reminder idea.

I was thinking it might be nice to add an extra envelope for pretty finds – postcards, trinkets, drawings, and the like – that could be used alongside more personal treasures to create little surprise parcels, just to let my friends know I’m thinking of them, even if we haven’t been able to catch up in person for awhile.

Are you good at remembering events & birthdays, or do you need a little help?
