What would we do without our true friends? They are the people who make us laugh when we’ve had a bad day, the place we go to for honest advice and the person we can tell, well, everything to. They are the special humans who support us through the good times and the bad, so when it comes to showing them how much they mean to us how do we put all this into words?
Engraving a message on a friendship bracelet is a touching way to show them how important they are to you and it will be a gift they can treasure forever.
As well as nurturing the connection you’re lucky enough to share with them, a kind message can help your friend’s brain too. Compliments are powerful – they not only make us feel good but also have an impact on memory, learning and motivation, so by saying something positive to a pal you are improving more than just their mood!
How To Write The Perfect Message
Your message needs to be personal, but short and sweet to have maximum impact. A good place to start is to think about what makes your friend unique, here are a few things to ask yourself to help you write the perfect message:
- How would you describe your friend in three words?
- Is there a special event you’ve shared? Could you choose to engrave a date or location that is important to you both – perhaps that awesome trip you took, or the date you both graduated?
- Could you include a joke you share, something just the two of you will understand?
- Is the friendship bracelet to thank them for something in particular? How can you explain this?
- Is the gift for a special occasion? A big birthday or to celebrate a success they’ve had?
- Is the bracelet to show that the bond you share won’t be broken by the distance created by one of you moving away or going on a trip?
Here are some of our favourite engraving ideas:

In times like these we like to turn to our favourite bear, after all, no one knows friendship like Winnie The Pooh! Here are some of his wisest words:
- We will be friends until forever
