Letters to My Best Friend

Do you have a best friend?  Someone who knows all your secrets, and who you can rely on no matter what?  I do, and I owe her everything.  Sometimes we don’t get to see each other as often as we’d like, but that doesn’t mean our friendship is any less strong.

I love my best friend more than anything, and I am eternally grateful to have her in my life. 

Sometimes it’s important to take a moment to let a bestie know just how important they are to us.  So take a moment and write an emotional letter to your dearest friend, letting her know what she means to you.

Letters to Write to Your Best Friend

  • Dear best friend,  I hope this letter finds you well.  I’m missing you so much and I can’t wait to catch up in person very soon  I n the meantime, I wanted to send you a little note with some thoughts that have been on my mind.   You are my favorite person to hang out with, because we are so similar in so many ways.  It feels like we just ‘get’ each other.  And that’s why I want to keep our friendship continuing, by writing letters to one another!

Best Friend Letters

Let your dear friend know just how much they mean to you by sending them a sweet letter outlining why they are important to you!

I promise you, the gesture will mean a lot to them!

  • Hey best friend,  I hope you’re doing well.  I don’t know if you still write letters, but I wanted to reach out and tell you how much I love and miss you.  It’s been a while since we’ve been able to hang out, and I really wish we could catch up soon.  Until then, I’ll be thinking of you often and keeping you close in my thoughts.  
  • I wanted to write you a letter but I’m not sue what to say.  I feel like I could talk to you for hours on the phone, but when it comes to putting my thoughts into words on paper, I get stuck.  I think about all the things we’ve been through together, and how there’s nobody else I would want by my side.   I guess what I’m trying to say is thank you.  Thank you for always being there for me, no matter what.  Thank you for understanding me better than anyone else in my life.  Thank you for being my best friend, somebody who makes me laugh until my stomach hurts.

A Letter to My Best Friend



It's not that diamonds are a girl's best friend, but it's your best friends who are your diamonds.



A friend is one who overlooks your broken fence and admires the flowers in your garden.



In the cookie of life, friends are the chocolate chips.



Many people will walk in and out of your life, but only true friends will leave footprints in your heart.



There are friends, there is family and then there are friends that become family.



Good friends are like stars. You don't always see them, but you know they're always there.



Life was meant for good friends and great adventures



There is nothing I would not do for those who are really my friends.



It's not what we have in life, but who we have in our life that matters.



True friends are never apart, maybe in distance but never in heart.
