How to Gift Crystals as a Gift
Friends can be hard to shop for. While you may be very communicative with friends, you may not always know exactly what they’re going through. When that time arrives, you can use your intuition to find them a crystal gift.
First, think about the person you’d like to gift to. Then, tune into the stones (either that you have at home, or at the shop or online shop). Which stone stands out to you when you think of this person? It may be exactly what your friend needs! Once selected, remember to cleanse the stone so you gift it to him or her with the purest of energies. Box it up and give it to the person while thinking of a unique intention just for them! They’ll be sure to love it.
Friendships are as Precious as Stones
The sole act of gifting a crystal to a friend shows that you are thinking of them—and who doesn’t love a present that was picked out just for their unique needs? Friendships are worth the time and effort needed to nurture them and keep their bonds strong. We, as humans, have a deep need to feel a connection so don’t let those important needs slide away, beneath life’s many responsibilities. Cultivating wonderful relationships is a huge need, too. Whether your friend needs a crystal friend, your friendships need some loving energy to help strengthen the bond, or you need a crystal protector to help you meet new people, crystals are there for you.
