We have holidays for everything, from National Fruitcake Toss Day to National Hat Day. While you don’t need to celebrate every one of these crazy holidays, there’s one you absolutely should not forget.
International Friendship Day is a holiday dedicated to your best friends. Often, our friends become our second family, especially if we’ve moved far from home. Friends support us in our darkest times and celebrate with us in the brightest. International Friendship Day offers you the opportunity to honor your friend’s positive impact on your life. However, it’s challenging to come up with the perfect present for your best friend.

Planning a day of celebration with dinner, drinks and a much needed chat is essential for International Friendship Day. However, you also want to shower them with gifts and sentimental cards. Choose from these top gift ideas from our sock fairies for International Friendship Day.
- friendship cards
It’s not a proper holiday without a greeting card. At The Sock Drawer, we have a range of cards, so you’re sure to find the perfect option for your friend. Friendship cards can run the gamut from humorous, like our Highest of High Fives card and to seriously thankful, like our Show Up, Breathe card.
You can personalize your friendship card by including a note with an inside joke or writing about a memory you cherish with your friend.
- themed socks
Everyone needs socks, and interesting ones are more fun than plain black or white options. At The Sock Drawer, we pride ourselves on our impressive range of designs. No matter what style or pattern your friend is into, we have cute socks for them. From socks for musicians to flower socks, one of the best gifts for plant lovers, you’re sure to find something perfect.
If you have a tight-knit group of friends, consider getting everyone matching socks. Pick socks based on a shared interest, like hiking, sushi or tacos, and you can all wear your matching socks the next time you get together. This is also a fantastic way to stay connected, even if you cannot gather in person yet. At your next group Zoom, you can all show off your new, matching socks.
- fun tote bags
Whether you’re out shopping and bring your own bag to carry your groceries home or you’re heading to the beach and want something to store your towel, sunscreen and book, a cute tote bag is practical.
If your friend is always on the go, get them an adorable yet useful tote bag to go with their funny socks.Pair Some Socks with a Friendship Card for the Perfect Gift!
