Love. Create. Celebrate. : Best Friend Birthday Gift

Best Friend Birthday Gift

I LOVE my bestie. 
Love. Love. Love her. 
She has been my friend for 20+ years, and was my Maid of Honor when I got married. 
(And actually.. probably was the best maid of honor in the history of the gig)
We grew up close to each other, but now we live 3 provinces away and only see each other a couple of times a year *tear*. 

The hardest thing about being so far away is that we no longer get to celebrate all of our birthdays, holidays, and accomplishments in person with one another. 
A phone call is just not suffice all the time. 
We still do our best to call and send a little something, but you often end up paying more for the shipping (darn Canada Post!) than you do for the gift itself when you mail anything. 

So I thought... what can I buy/make that meets all my criteria:
1. Thoughtful
2. Not too heavy to send by mail
3. Homemade (if possible)

So here's what I came up with... I bought a lightweight coffee mug, and filled it with chocolate, teas and a starbucks gift card. Then I crocheted some lovely coffee cozies for her mug :) 
Plus the homemade card with a picture from my wedding day [but that's a given with me...lol].

Love you times a million!
