I would get a beer mug for my brother.  I picked a beer mug because my brother just turned 19 and he likes beer.  I would engrave his name, or “Patty” because it’s his nickname.

3.  A Gift for my Dad

4 Health Benefits of Friendships


photo10 with quote

Sunday, August 4th is Friendship Day.  This is a time to celebrate the wonderful friendships that you have in your life and a day that encourages friendship and fellowship among everyone.   Friendships are an important part of a balanced and happy life.  However, having these friendships in our lives are not only fun, but they also provide many health benefits!

4 Health Benefits of Friendships:

  • Reduces Stress: Stress can cause all kinds of diseases and illnesses. The effects of stress over time can harm your body, and increase your risk of many health problems such as depression and heart disease to obesity and diabetes.  However, good friendships will help your body handle life’s ups and downs better.  There’s nothing like a good laugh with close friends to brighten up your day.
  • Developing Healthy Habits: The healthy habits of your friends can help influence you to make positive health changes in your own life.  Dinner out with the girls may lead you to making healthier food options when you see their healthy choices.  A night out with the guys may involve playing sports instead of sitting in front of the TV.  Let your friend’s healthy habits become your habits too!
  • Disease becomes less deadly: Harvard research has shown that breast cancer patients with no friendship network are four times more likely to die from the disease than those with ten or more close friends.
  • Motivational: As close as you are to your friends, no two people are the same.  You and your friends have your own lives with your own goals and challenges.  Friendships can help put your life in perspective and recognize your strengths and weaknesses.  You may think you’re happy getting B’s in school, or that you are content with your current career, but seeing a friend excel in their life can motivate you to push yourself to be the best you can be.

Having strong friendships can have a significant positive impact on your life and your health.  Acknowledge the happiness and healthy benefits that your friendships bring you on Friendship Day.

Celebrate your friendship with gifts from Things Engraved.  Engrave the gift  with a favourite memory or funny inside joke for a gift any friend will love.


How do you plan to celebrate Friendship day with your friends?
