A witty and affectionate friendship poem. All about friends - the fabulous female ones, that is! Can be personalised.

Our funny, heartfelt friend print makes the perfect gift for a best friend - whether it's her birthday, christmas, or a special occasion like being a bridesmaid.

The print comes unframed but we would be happy to frame it for you.

Written by award-winning Bespoke Verse poet Joanna Miller, this poem began life as a gift for her sister. It led to our range of 'What is a...?' poems that have featured in magazines such as VOGUE and Easy Living.

Whether she's a listening ear, a tireless shopper or a birthday surpriser, everyone will recognise the bond described in 'What is a Friend?'

Font colours available are purple, blue and taupe on white card or black on brown card. You can add a personalised message at the bottom right of the print for an extra fee.


The poem is printed onto the highest quality GF Smith A4 card (330gsm) using Dura-Bright waterproof ink. There is no mount around the print.

Each print is lovingly produced to order. Unframed prints arrive flat, wrapped in cellophane, in a super stiff envelope.

For an extra fee we can frame the print for you. The lightweight wooden frames are either matt white with a slightly grained effect, smooth white or slim matt black. Frames have a hook for wall hanging. The front is perspex.

Each frame is hand finished in the UK by Fine Art Trade Guild commended framers. The product is dispatched in a purpose-made picture box.

The print is H30 x W21cm (A4) and when framed is H34.5 x W25.7 x D2cm.

What is a Friend?

A winer, a diner, an outfit designer

A meeter, a greeter, a chocolate eater

A debater, relater, a smile reinstater

A lift provider, an on-your-sider

A diva, a bopper, a tireless shopper

A snorter, a sniggerer, infectious giggler

A baker, a caker, a mate mickey-taker

An ally, a sister, a gentle arm twister

A lip-gloss provider, a secret confider

A texter, a writer, a party inviter

A colleague, a carer, a problem-sharer

A cocktail blender & cheeky rule bender

A gossipy chatterer, forgiver & flatterer

A handbag borrower, a ring-tomorrower

A ‘stop for a cuppa’, a date fixer-upper

A listening ear, a loyal volunteer

A welcome inquisitor, spare bed visitor

A misser, a kisser, a cinema hisser

A birthday surpriser & cherished adviser

A laugher, a kidder, anxiety ridder...

That’s what makes a friend!
