Complete a Best Friends Day Bucket List

If you are lucky enough to live close by your bestie, we thought you might like a day planned out for the both of you! With this National BFF Day bucket list, you both are for sure getting spoiled AND having the best day together!

Print off this adorable bucket list and go to town! Courtney from Paperelli created it (so cute!) and these 5 ideas can be done anywhere and in any order!

  1. Take time to review your “Memory Moments.” What are some of your favorite memories together or of each other?
  2. Have a little photoshoot. This doesn’t have to be anything fancy (though it totally could be). Prop up your phone, set a timer, and take pictures with your ultimate BFF on National Best Friends Day.
  3. Grab a yummy drink together. You could even order for each other and keep it secret what your order. Do you know what your BFF’s favorite drink is?
  4. Get your nails done! We love the thought of getting pedis together because a) It’s summer, and we need cute toes, and b) It’s the perfect activity where you can sit by each other, get pampered, and still have the ability to chit chat!
  5. Top off your time together with some delicious desserts. And yes, it is fine if you both order more than 1. The more the merrier totally applies when it comes to desserts. 😉

FYI, there are two versions of the printable bucket list: a prepped one and a blank one for you to fill up with your own ideas. You can also just download the digital version (linked below) and keep track on your phone. It would be really fun to text your bestie the bucket list so they can get excited about your day out!

Social Media Templates & Cards for a BFF Shoutout

If you don’t have the chance to be with your bestie (or even if you do!), we wanted to give you a chance to recognize them on Best Friends Day via a social media shout out. We created four adorable social media templates you could post on your social media profile highlighting your BFF! How fun is that?
