Take unique routes to pamper buddies on Friendship Day

New Delhi: Friendship bands, cards and flowers are mundane Friendship Day treats, but how about making the occasion special by getting your buddies a ride in a luxurious car or by planning a day-long retreat nearby?

Here are ways you can enjoy Friendship Day on Sunday with a twist:

* Hire a Limousine, BMW, Audi or any other luxury car as a unique way to pamper your friends on Friendship Day. ECO Rent a Car has special packages for such cars so that people can enjoy a ride with their friends on this occasion. If not a luxury ride, gift them a free cab ride! You can #ShareTheLove amongst all your friends by giving them a free Uber ride up to Rs.500. For every friend who takes a ride with your code, you get a free ride up to Rs.500 as well.

* According to e-commerce platform flipkart.com, there’s almost a 70 percent increase in demand across a range of Friendship Day wrist bands and this iconic symbol of friendship maintains its position as the number one trend. However, it’s the Salman Khan inspired blue turquoise bracelets which are emerging as the new-age wrist accessory. There is also a spike in demand for wearable fitness bands being bought for Friendship Day gifting purpose.

* If you don’t have the time to go to the market and shop, try exploring online platforms like Printvenue.com, where you can create personalised coffee mugs, mobile covers, pens and more as a memoir of love for your friend.

* You can never go wrong with a good meal when it comes to pampering your loved ones. So, this Friendship Day, you can plan a home-cooked meal for your friend, or take them out to a cafe or eatery; or to save the hassle of either cooking yourself or going out, order in something.

* Take a drive to nearby getaways and soak in the joys of spa treatments and a body massage to make your weekend and Friendship Day worthwhile.
