Happy Thursday and happy November, friends! As the holiday season continues to approach, you may be gathering gifts for friends, family, or even strangers. Aside from birthdays and Valentine's Day, this is the biggest time of the year to show someone how much you care for them.
Can I confess something? Every single year before Christmas, I have a "nightmare" that I forgot to get all of my family presents and I have to quickly put together homemade cards as their gift. So, each year to prevent that dream (though it never works), I try to start picking out items for my family members early.
Though sometimes, physical gifts are hard to come by, or just don't feel quite right.
Even then, though, there's just something about giving to others that makes our hearts smile.
When I mention gift-giving, I feel like your mind automatically went to spending money and buying an item. Right? Well, you could do that, but giving gifts doesn't have to involve anything monetary or tangible. In fact, there are all kinds of gifts that you could give your loved ones that don't involve spending a dime.
But, before we go there, let's talk about something most people tend to glaze over as they approach the holiday season: the matter behind giving.
Giving is our way of showing others how much we care. It comes in many forms, as expressed above, but the importance behind it is that any form of giving to another person is a way for us to enhance our relationships – create a bond of appreciation.
While sometimes it may be a generous act, it can also be one to just see others happy.
Overall, though, the benefit of giving is to form a tie between us and the recipient. There's no doubt that you'll feel positively impacted by impacting others positively.
And, to be completely truthful, the act of giving is much more beneficial for our happiness than actually receiving – the joy lasts longer! So, let's discuss ways you can give to others this holiday season without even touching your wallet.
When it's hard to pinpoint just the right thing to give, thought and care can play a huge role in figuring out how to go about showing your love through a gift.
Ever heard of a picture saying a thousand words? That's why I love ZOX, too. They're a great way to show someone your true thoughts in the form of a physical reminder. Maybe this Spotlight Strap could be your perfect gift this season! Certainly seems fitting to me.
Here are some ideas to go along with that:
You don't have to go all out to show someone you care. Sometimes, just being there is enough. And as this beautiful card says: it's more about the love behind a gift than what we actually give.
Every wristband made is a limited edition work of art for your wrists. ZOX are reversible with a design on one side and a positive message on the inside. Every ZOX is individually laser cut with a serial number to ensure authenticity.
