5 Ways To Treat Your BFF

Take them on a date

Set a date, get together, and do something you love. Whether it’s a coffee date in the morn or cocktails in the eve, take some time out of your schedule to pencil in some time together and catch up. We love catching a coffee at our local coffee shop before spending the day at the beach or strolling through our favourite shops and local markets. There are so many ways to spend some quality time together, even if it’s just for an hour or two! If you can’t be with your BFF in person, why not set up a call or send a text?📱👋

Organise a night in

You can’t beat a night in on the sofa with a glass of wine/big cup of tea, binging Netflix whilst eating your weight in Bare Bones Chocolate. Grab your closest friends and spend the night catching up - but be sure to choose the film in advance, we all know how easy it is to spend the whole night browsing Netflix for something to watch 😂. Choose from some unbeatable classics: Friends, Gossip Girl, Gilmore Girls, Sex and the City or some new favourites: Stranger Things, Orange Is The New Black, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Girlboss, You and Queer Eye.

Say it with flowers

Of course we had to mention flowers, they’re the perfect way to make your bestie smile, or anyone for that matter! Whether it’s one of our daily designs or even one of our flower subscriptions, a beautiful bouquet is the perfect way to make your BFF’s day. If you’re looking for something a little different, why not try out our new Dried Flower Bouquets (available UK wide!), a lovely way to show someone that you care.

Send A Small Gift

Now of course we know that gifts aren’t required to show how much you care, but it doesn’t mean we don’t love treating our closest friends when we get the chance. Whether it’s their favourite floral candle or a box of the best doughnuts in Glasgow from Tantrum Doughnuts, a small, thoughtful gift can show your friends that you’re thinking about them. If you’re looking to browse and buy, why not make a day of it and try on some specs with your BFF at IOLLA’s brand new showroom on West George Street, Glasgow!

Try Something new

Why not book your BFF onto a workshop to learn something new together? Or maybe you could finally book onto that yoga class that you’ve always wanted to try! Trying something new with your bestie will make for a fab day and give you the chance to make new memories whilst learning something new! Who knows, it might become a new hobby that you both love! Here’s some ideas: Cooking Class, Flower Workshop, Dance Class, Yoga Class, Jewellery Making, Climbing, Wine Tasting, Chocolate Tour!

PS. Our next flower workshop will be in held in September and our Christmas Wreath workshops will be back in December, watch this space!
