Celebrating Friends with merci Chocolates #MerciFriends

August 30, 2013

I have some pretty awesome friends. I’m not trying to gloat – but I think my friends are super special.

I’ve always been one who can only ‘keep up’ with a few people at a time. I can’t possibly understand how someone has 25 best friends – and keeps in contact with them all. I have a hard enough time with having regular contact with 3-4 great friends.

FriendsI do however, like to think of my friends and how special they are to me – and give them anything that I can to show them that I appreciate them. So when I was approached by merci chocolates to share a ‘Friendship Kit’ with a friend, I jumped at the chance! Friendship Kit 1merci sent over a friends picture frame, a scented candle, a target gift card, and some merci chocolates (of course!) for me to share with a friend who I thought deserved a meaningful ‘Thank You’. I am giving the package to a good friend of mine who has been with me through thick and thin along with a picture of us inside the frame. I’m sure we’ll eat the entire box of chocolates together while we catch up… Because that’s what girls do best!

Do you have a friend that could use a special friendship kit to say ‘Thanks for being a great friend’ and have their day brightened? You, too can take a moment to get some merci chocolates and a special gift to show your friends that you care.
