smileA bestie makes life better in every way. She’s there for your laughter and tears and the first person you turn to when you want to share big news, or your small day-to-day adventures. A true friend contributes to our lives in so many ways. She listens intently, which eases loneliness and reduces stress.

Having someone who loves and cares for you despite all your flaws can help improve self esteem and self confidence. The ability to share all the secrets of your soul and your honest feelings with someone you trust enables your friend to provide a new perspective – and sometimes a reality check – on the issues with which you struggle.

Your best friend loves the real you, which is amazing, because you get to be who you really are around someone you can truly trust. That allows you to connect with your best friend, but also with yourself on a deeper level.

And let’s not discount all those important laughs and good times you get to share together…

Perhaps you’re looking for a great way to celebrate your friend-aversary, a birthday, work promotion, or another important event, or perhaps you just want to show her how much she means to you. After all, you don’t need a good reason to have a good time – your friendship is reason enough.

Here are some Bucket List Genie approved Besties experiences that promise a great time.

If you’re in the mood for something a little posh, you can’t beat the Besties Spa Escape & High Tea for Two experience at the Table Bay Hotel in Cape Town. Savour the bliss of a rejuvenating, relaxing hot stone massage before you head over to the lounge for a high tea indulgence. Tea

But you don’t have to fly all the way to the Mother City. The Fairway Hotel in Johannesburg also offers a lovely High Tea & Spa Treat for Two Besties. Enjoy an indulgent neck and scalp massage before tucking into a spectacular selection of sweet and savoury treats.

Share a love for fragrances? Take your bestie to a Perfume Workshop for Two in Cape Town. With the expert assistance of scent savants, you will have the opportunity to learn more about the art of perfumery and create your very own signature fragrances. Enjoy a tour of the Exclusive Perfume museum before heading home with your own concentrated perfume, 10ml fragrance oil, and 50ml perfumed body cream.

Attend a Chocolate Tasting & Lunch for Two with your bestie at Casalinga Restaurant where you will learn the art and proper etiquette for tasting chocolate. Hint: Wolfing down a box while hiding in the closet is NOT the way to make the most of it! At the end of the experience and a lovely plated pasta meal, you will go home with a box of truffles.

Feeling adventurous? Head to Hekpoort for an Adventure Combo-Day for Two. You don’t need any experience to enjoy archery, go karting, quad biking or horseback riding.

Are you ready for a fun filled day with your bestie? Then book your adventures right now!
