I am hesitating with the use of the right tense.
I'm planning a trip to see a friend and I am teasing him a bit by saying "make sure that my stay will be the best I'd ever had / have."
I first wrote automatically 'had', but then I'm not sure about the rightness...

Thank you for your help

    Make sure my stay will be the best I've ever had sounds the most natural solution to me. :)

    Edit: On second thoughts, given the context, I think make sure my stay will be the best I could possibly ever have! works well too.

    Just a note: I think removing 'that' after 'make sure' makes it sound more natural too.

    As it's a friend, you could be more informal and say simply, "make sure my stay is the best ever".
