Have you ever been walking through a store and something just catches your eye and you think to yourself, “that would be perfect for so and so”? What do you do? Do you purchase that item and wait for their birthday or another holiday? Or… why not just give it to them just because it reminded you of them and that’s it? Give… just to give!
Two years ago this very exact thing happened to me. I spotted some cocktail napkins that made me think of one of my sisters and I had to get them for her. I popped them in the mailbox with a note stating “These made me think of you”, and in a couple of days she calls me just thrilled because; A) she loved the napkins and B) she loved the idea of us sending little gifts to one another just because.
The idea of giving just to give is so much fun! The giving part is my favorite, but I must admit it is exciting to see what’s in my package too! It’s the simple act of kindness and letting someone know that you are thinking of them is truly special. Try it sometime, you will be overjoyed by the response of your recipient!
Here are some of the gifts that we have exchanged over the past two years that has made this act so much fun for us; Cocktail Napkins, Candles, Spices, Teas, Jewelry, Wallets, Soaps, Printed Photos, Tea Towels, Cosmetics, Letters with our initials and Chocolates, just to name a few.
I’m sure I’m forgetting some things, but you get the idea. One thing I would like to point out is that we don’t spend a ton of money. For us it’s more about the thought, than the amount. I love to give and it truly is more rewarding than receiving.
I would love for you to share any ideas you might have for gifting and if you have any similar stories or if my sister and I have inspired you, please share your experiences with me! We can always use more inspiration and look forward to hearing your stories! It’s all about spreading the love and making someone’s day a little bit brighter!
Enjoy All 4 One Home!
