In the October 1, 2012 issue of First for Women, I saw this tip about wearing the color orange when you need an emotional boost. They said, "to boost positive energy, wear an orange top or bracelet. It has a mix of red (energizes hormones like adrenaline) and yellow (which promotes positive thoughts)."
I like this idea, and think one easy way to accomplish this is with an orange friendship bracelet. The color fits with the time of year, after all, and if it can give your pal an emotional boost? Why not? (You might want to make a few for yourself, too.)
I often get questions on gift ideas for friends, and friendship bracelets are a great way to give something small or jazz up a larger gift. If you're wondering on how to make them (I've never done it but have been told several times they are very easy), here's a list of wonderful tutorials I've come across. If you've made a friendship bracelet you're proud of, please share your photos and step-by-step with us.
