Your besties may be far away for Friendsgiving this year, but that's not stopping you from enjoying the day in their company. Instead of sitting down at a table with a turkey and some cranberry sauce, you're simply opting to have a virtual event. These virtual Friendsgiving captions will be #necessary for the posts you make on Instagram after you catch up, play games, and brew apple cider cocktails over FaceTime or Zoom.

They're putting your feels about your friendships into words, and truly showing that distance has nothing on your crew. Even though being in different cities or having to be apart due to the ongoing pandemic isn't always ideal, you still talk on the regular. You watch your favorite television shows together, organize surprises on your birthdays, and remain a big part of each other's lives.

For that reason, planning a virtual Friendsgiving might have been super easy and straightforward. After sending a text like, "Let's hang out on Zoom with Thanksgiving food on Saturday at 2 p.m.," your plans were in place. Now, you're simply in prep mode, which means deciding on a few virtual Friendsgiving games to play — like a scavenger hunt or Thanksgiving-themed Bingo — during your gathering, and tracking down some recipes to make, too.

In the midst of your planning, be sure to jot down these IG captions for virtual Friendsgivings. They're made for BFFs who aren't close distance wise, but are always close in heart.
