Metro Manila (CNN Philippines) — July 30 marks International Friendship Day and while it falls on a payday, you don’t have to burn much cash to celebrate your beshies, besties, and best bros. Here are five ways to pay tribute to the most important platonic relationship without making your wallet cry.

Write a heartfelt letter (₱0 - ₱35)

Who still writes on stationery anymore, you ask? That is what actually makes a handwritten letter so special. Relive your memories and how you and your beshie supported each other throughout the years. Doodle, place stickers, and be creative. At the age of AI and social media, nothing warms the heart more than a personal letter.

Clean his or her room (₱0 / ₱100 for cleaning materials)

Remember the times you slept over at your beshie’s place to finish a project? How about the nights you have to heal a broken heart? Your friend’s room was a sanctuary where you built the foundations of your friendship. Do a deep clean together and reminisce your memories by decluttering.

Re-gift his or her favorite item (₱0)

Is your best friend fond of a particular item in your closet or games you are done playing? Forward the good karma by giving the thing that particularly interests him or her.

Create a dance reel together (₱0)

Rehearse a dance together then upload it online to immortalize how synchronized you two are. It does not have to be perfect. Just have fun doing it with your best buddy.

Drink together (₱38 a bottle SRP / ₱50 a can SRP)

Grab a memorable bonding opportunity for you and your friends and show your appreciation by gifting them a can or bottle of San Miguel Flavored Beer. Because SMFB is only ₱38 SRP (bottle) or ₱50 SRP (can), you and your friends can celebrate “International Friendship Day” without breaking the bank.

This sweet and refreshing beer can easily be found in sari-sari stores, convenience stores, groceries, supermarkets, bars, restaurants, and online via SMBDelivers.

Drink Responsibly.
