This year could be the best yet.

Our friends are some of the most important people in our lives. They’re there to celebrate with us when we are at our happiest and they are there to help pick up the pieces when things go wrong.

With crazy schedules and hectic work lives, it can sometimes be hard to set aside some quality time with your BFF. So, to give you a little inspiration, we’ve come up with a few simple ideas to help reconnect with your bestie.

1. Plan an Irish road trip

Set aside a Saturday and spend the whole day exploring some of Ireland’s most scenic coastal routes. Why not drive along the Wild Atlantic Way or maybe even explore the Ring of Kerry? Get the tunes blaring and the snacks ready. (Wahooo!)

2. Enjoy a spa day

A little relaxation is always a welcome treat. Book you and your friend in for a pamper session at your local spa and she’ll adore you forever.

3. Come dine with me

Treat your best friend to a nice home-cooked meal and have a proper catch up over some delicious grub.

4. Do a  marathon

A Netflix one that is. Sometimes you just need a weekend on the sofa binge-watching a brilliant series and eating pizza with your favourite person, and there’s nothing wrong with that.

5. Take up a new hobby

Want a good excuse to meet up at least once a week? Sign yourselves up for a local drama class or sports club and you’ll have no reason to miss a rendezvous.

6. Set a goal

Have you both always wanted to run a 5k? Working towards something together will make it so much easier.

7. Volunteer

Volunteering at a local charity is a great way to catch up with your BFF and bring lots of good karma your way too.

8. Book a weekend break

Escape the everyday and spend a whole weekend some place new. You’ll have great craic planning the adventure before you go and spend ages mulling over the photos once you get back. Just think of all those gorgeous Instas.

9. Go for afternoon tea

There is nothing nicer than getting dolled up and heading out for some afternoon tea with your best friend. You’ll be able to catch up properly and have a good old gossip over your favourite tipple.

10. Get outdoors

Fresh air can work wonders on your mood. Grab your bestie and your coat (it is Ireland after all) and go for a nice long walk in the countryside. It can cure a multitude of sins.

If you or your friend is bringing a little one along, don’t stress about making and packing lots of Follow On Milk bottles for your little one before a long journey. Aptamil Follow On Milk Ready To Drink products are available in a variety of different formats and are really handy to use while you’re on the go.
