When a friend needs you, drop everything and go! "Everything" does not include a chocolate souffle or a bottle of hair color, and certainly not the baby!
Introduce each friend as "my best friend in the whole wide world," and when you call her on the phone say, "This is your very best friend in the whole wide world." You can have at least two dozen best friends in the whole wide world. More if you travel.
Give away something you love-children don't count!
Tune in! Find out what your friends love and act accordingly. If a friend loves cats, send her cards with cats on them. If she loves tea, give her a teacup or an assortment of exotic teas from around the world. How about a single tea bag attached to a helium-filled balloon? For a book lover, a gift certificate would be nice-or even a handful of bookmarks. For a gardener, give a watering can. If you have a friend whose hobby is nuclear science, you're on your own!
