National Friendship Day and International Friendship Day are celebrated on two different days. This year, in the United States, National Friendship Day falls on July 30, 2021. Worldwide, International Friendship Day is celebrated on August 1, 2021. Regardless of which one you prefer to follow, it is a time to cherish your friends. This year, the focus is on long-distance friends because so many of us have been separated from our besties and close friends due to the ravages of the pandemic. So, if you're unable to be there for your best bud or fave pal in person, you should at least get them something to remember you by.
Here is our top recommendation...
Friendship Lamps for Both of You
Friendship lamps work in pairs or sets. Each lamp can be connected to its local Wi-Fi network in any location around the world and linked to a common Group ID. The group can have any number of lamps associated with it, and they form a virtual network of lamps. When one of the lamps is touched on the sensor plate at the top, all other lamps in that group will light up in the color assigned to that lamp. Similarly, when any of the other lamps are activated this way, the other lamps in the group will light up in the color of the triggering lamp.
It's a Great Way to Communicate
So many of our customers have come back to us saying that the Friendship Lamps are a fantastic way to communicate non-verbally and stay in touch with friends and loved ones living across town, across the country, or across the globe. The moment someone sees their lamp light up in your color, they know you're thinking of them. It's a non-intrusive way of just saying "Hey" or "I'm thinking about you right now" and it's a powerful communication tool.
How Does It Work?
When you set up a Friendship Lamp at your location, you'll be using your smartphone to hook it up to the Wi-Fi. During that process, you will also be adding it to a Group ID that will be provided to you. In addition, you'll be able to choose a color to assign to your lamp. Let everyone in your network know what that color is so they'll know it's you when their lamp lights up in that color.
Why It's a Great Gadget to Celebrate Friendship
Friends often lose touch when they live in different locations. It's hard to balance your professional life, personal life, and stay in touch with the people that matter in your life. That's why the Friendship Lamps are so effective - they offer an easy way to stay in touch without the hassle of texting or calling. Of course, you can do that whenever you have the time, and we highly recommend it. However, the lamps give you a quick way to say hello without the other person being obligated to respond right away.
You can also use it to communicate in code. Tap once for something, tap twice for something else, and so on.
Thousands of our customers are now able to stay connected with their spouses, friends, siblings, parents, grandparents, uncles, aunts, and other relatives - all at the touch of a lamp!
