99.9% of the time, my blog is all about happiness, color, and creativity. If you haven’t noticed…. (looks around at all the bright colors). But, we all get down sometimes! And that’s when a little pick me up is in order!
Ironically -- or probably not really -- the color blue is the perfect hue for when you or your friend is feeling, ya know...blue. So, I’ve scoped out a few pieces of blue jewelry you can give your friend when she’s having a rough time. They last longer than flowers and are way more wearable than a sympathy card.
It’s true that we get by with a little help from our friends.
If your bestie loses someone they love, do you feel their pain just as strongly as if it was your own?
Do you worry you’ll be able to be there when she starts that new job?
Do you google what flavor of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream is best for lousy Tinder dates?
When your friend sends out an S.O.S, you rush to her side faster than you can play APES**T. But, sometimes it's hard to know what to do when you get there.
Offering advice rarely works -- mostly it backfires. And if your friend doesn’t feel up to talking, you can’t really listen, can you?
But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t do anything when your friend is facing a dilemma. Withdrawing can come off cold or even unsympathetic.
In fact, the heat is on, friend! You know your squad better than anyone else, so even when you can’t do much, your gal pal will be grateful you put some thought into what you did do.

Look to blue when you’re feeling, well, blue
My favorite way to show support is fusing the power of color with the practicality of everyday jewelry. If you’ve read posts from my ‘Boost Your Tude series, you know color can have an impact on how you think and feel.
Ironically -- or probably not really -- the color blue is the perfect hue for when your friend is feeling, ya know...blue.
Think of the sky, ocean, or twilight. Blue is a peaceful color. It can lower the pulse rate and body temperature. And call to mind feeling of calmness, serenity, or sleep.
But, at the same time, blue can boost productivity and stimulate thinking. So, whether your friend needs to slow down or speed up, blue can help.
If she loves the color blue
Maybe your friend’s favorite color happens to be blue. If so, she’s likely a romantic -- lover of poems, flowers, and meaningful connections. Which is probably why those bad tinder dates hit so hard!
No, she’s not naive. In fact, she’s intelligent and strong (ever wondered why Ravenclaw’s color is blue?). Your friend believes in true love and relationships that go deep below the surface. She knows love is a mountain to climb, and that’s why she fights so hard for it!
Plus, she’s a giver, not a taker. She pours all her love and energy into those around her. So, when she loses someone close, it’s almost like she’s lost a part of herself. She’ll need you to fill a void she’s not used to filling!
Blue Jewelry Gifts for Your Friend Who’s Having a Hard Time
Of course, flowers are always a great idea. And cards are a nice touch. But jewelry is something your friend can wear every day as a reminder that you’re there for her and love her dearly.
So, to cut to the chase, I’ve scoped out a few pieces of blue jewelry you can give your friend when she’s having a rough time. Or maybe just because...because those are really the best gifts!
