I have a few close friends, all of whom are bloggers, and I definitely have one I consider my bestie. (You know who you are.) But there’s also my daughter — she’s the one I text back and forth with all day long, tell my everythings to and I can use abbreviations and made-up words and she knows exactly what I mean.
So this friendship gift basket is for you, my wonderfully crazy, beautiful and hilarious first born. I love you!
I’m sharing this friendship gift basket as part of a #Ricola sponsored series for Socialstars.™
I didn’t just throw things into this daughter/friendship gift basket haphazardly either. It was carefully thought out to suit her, as all gift baskets for friends should be! But here’s kinda how I decided on the contents.
Friendship Gift Basket
But first coffee.
Some people can get a day rolling without caffeine. She’s not one of them. Feed the monster, or it will destroy us all.
Eat, talk and chew.
When my daughter was in college and I’d make plans to visit her, she’d always get excited that we could “eat, talk and chew” together, and the phrase has stuck with us all these years. It’s only fitting that I give her some of her favorite treats (because even a healthy, fit bodybuilder likes occasional treats in her off-season).
Feel better, sweetie.
I have no idea why she’s the one in the family who gets sick all the time, because she takes the best care of herself. She’ll get a cold, get over it and catch yet another one while the rest of us stay healthy, and omg, is she ever a baby when she gets sick. Bring out her old tattered blankie and teddy bear.
Since she’s very careful about what she ingests (save a few treats here and there), she’s also careful about what she uses for relief when not feeling well. Ricola throat drops are herbal drops that capture nature’s goodness, the power of Chrüterchraf (a secret blend of 10 Swiss herbs) and have a delightful balance of taste and efficacy.
There’s something to be said for the fact it’s a family-run company (headquartered in Laufen, Switzerland). Better yet, they choose to work with over 100 self-managed farms throughout Switzerland to source the finest quality traditionally cultivated herbs, free of pesticides and herbicides.
Did you know? Ricola has more than 40 different ranges of herb drops and teas that can be found in over 50 countries, and thank goodness the U.S. of A is one of them!
Be your own kind of beautiful
She loves to pamper herself! Whether it’s doing a pedicure, trying new skin treatments or enjoying a spa treatment, she’s all in.
Uncork & Unwind
A couple times a week, she loves to relax with a glass of wine or cocktail at the end of a day. Don’t we all?
So there you have it! It’s a friendship gift basket to treat my forever best friend – my lovely daughter. I hope it inspires you to create a gift basket for a friend or family member you care about too.
