Wondering what to gift your friends to show how much they mean to you this Friendship Day? Rhea Dhanbhoora & Priyanka Singh give you some gift ideas that won’t break the bank

In school, Friendship Day meant flouting the ‘no accessories’ rule so that you could wear and exchange friendship bands and bracelets all day. In college, it included little knick-knacks and coffee celebrations. You may have outgrown all those things, but you haven’t outgrown your friends, have you? There’s no need to go over-the-top to show your friends that you care, but everyone likes a gift every now and then! We’ve got ideas to suit every budget for under `2,000 — so, go ahead and shop till you drop before Sunday comes around.

Select Sun sign:
Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)
Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)A romantic opportunity awaits. You need to be kind and compassionate to the less fortunate. Be careful not to be too arrogant or demanding. Capricorn will keep you grounded while it is best to avoid high flying Leo or Sagittarius. The card for the week is the Tarot key no: XIX; The Sun.
