Unexpected Delights for Holiday Cheer

As the holidays are taking off in full swing, there are things that you can do when you want to embrace holiday cheer and share the love. The following are a few ideas that you can try when you want to make people’s days brighter this holiday season. Take a look:

Send snack baskets to your dearest

Kick off the holiday season with a gesture of kindness. Think about the best way to show your loved ones that you’re thinking of them as the holidays start to show up in all of their glory.

Whether that’s a gift basket full of wine, cheeses, and chocolate-covered strawberries or a batch of cookies, treat baskets are always a good way to get things going for your loved ones over the holidays. Don’t just send out a generic option for everyone in your circle. Think about each person’s preferences so you can be sure to make their day.

Shop around for that special gift

If you want to do something special for your loved ones, don’t rush the gift shopping this season. Nobody wants to waste money, and we all do like to open gifts that we love, so take time to discover the best options for your friends and family. You may need to do some background research to be confident that you’re gifting the best this season, but at the end of the day, rest assured that the gesture is really what counts, no matter what.

Help out with something for someone who needs it

If you want to take your gift-giving in another direction this season, instead of giving a present of something material, consider giving your time, or at the very least, gifting something that helps your loved one save time.

Maybe you have a friend who just had a baby, and she and her partner haven’t had time to stay on top of chores. A gift of housecleaning could be the perfect way for them to feel loved during the holidays. Maybe your sister doesn’t have a lot of time to cook during her busy career life, but you know she wants to eat healthy food. A food subscription or an easy meal cookbook tells her that you love her and you’ve got her covered.

Create homemade gifts

If you have talent, such as writing or painting, creating homemade gifts could be a beautiful way to share with your family. Most people love something thoughtful and creative as a gift, so think about how you can use your talent to show up for your loved ones, whether that’s through a work of art that they can put on their wall or a book of poetry that you took time writing.

There are countless homemade gifts to be made. Maybe you don’t have a large holiday budget this year, or perhaps you just want to create the kind of presents that share holiday cheer this year.

Spend time calling your loved ones

What most of us want is to feel loved and to connect. While gifts are beautiful, sharing laughter and life with our loved ones is one of the most enriching things that we can experience.

Take time to connect with your loved ones more than usual this holiday season. It may not always be easy, especially if you’re in different time zones, but we all need to feel a bit of love and connection, and this is the perfect way to make sure that your family and friends know that they are appreciated during this time of the year.

In Conclusion

As you seek to spread holiday cheer, think about these ideas. Gifts are always a great idea, but so is connection. At the end of the day, we all want to be remembered and know that there are people thinking of us.
