A guide to help you make Friendship Day special for your buddy this Sunday

If you have still not got a gift or a band for your friend, then rush to the nearest shop before they fly off the racks

Fashionable bands

Friendship bands are an integral part of the day. A friendship band with a loving message can brighten up the mood of your friends, which they will flaunt too proudly. Choose bands in bright colours. You can also get a customised band with your BFF’s (best friend forever) name designed on the beads. You can also opt for friendship bracelets and dark-coloured bands with a fashionable look. Leather bands are also available.


Greeting cards are the best way to express your feelings on Friendship Day. Gift your friend cards with funky quotes, graphics and messages. Musical cards are also in demand. Avoid cards with lengthy messages. Among the gifts, you can choose clocks, calendars, mugs and statues for your friends. So, share those old and memorable moments with your friend on the day over a cup of coffee or a mug of beer.

Party hard

At the end of the day, it’s time to party. No celebration is complete without a party. Throw a house party or visit a nightclub with your friends and enjoy. You can also dedicate a song to your friend. Some of the places you can visit on the day: The Discman,·Funtasia Island,·Bollywood Treats and Hangover.


Bollywood has played a major role in shaping the concept of friendship. From Jai and Veeru in Sholay to Rani and Vijaylakshmi in Queen, the depiction of friendship in Hindi cinema has undergone a radical change. It continues to be one of the most explored relationships in Hindi cinema. Also, when it comes to declaring undying love and dedication to friends, Bollywood does it the best way.

Yeh dosti hum nahin todenge - Sholay
Yaaron - Rockford
Jaane nahi denge tujhe - 3 Idiots
Daaru desi - Cocktail
You’ve got a friend - James Taylor
With a little help from my friends - Beatles
Count on me - Bruno Mars
