The saying “quality over quantity” applies to not only the friends we make throughout our lives but also the gifts we give them. We can all remember a gift a friend gave us, you may have smiled when receiving it, but thought “seriously, you think I’ll like this”. In comparison, you can also probably remember receiving a gift that was thoughtful and exactly what you like but maybe never even thought of buying for yourself.

There are many benefits of having good friends and receiving thoughtful gifts is just one of them. Now, you may be thinking “Am I a bad friend... I have no idea what to buy”, don’t worry we’re here to help!
