Who said that gifts to others need to be big gestures or high dollar items? The smallest gifts are the best gifts that I have ever received, in fact it’s the simplest and easiest things that my husband does that makes me happy. He left little post it notes for the kids to find one morning and it brightened up their whole day. We hung them up in a spot for them to see them every day. That was the kids’ choice. Or when he grabs my hand to hold as we’re walking. Most of the time we are holding the kids’ hands so when he offers his hand to me I love it. Giving to others is the same.
In the moments when others reach out with small gestures or thoughtful words, we recognize the truth behind the phrase, “It’s the thought that counts. In the midst of the hustle of the holidays, pause to have one of your children put a smile on someone’s face by giving something small. My kids gave away some hot chocolate to one of their teachers and she loved it. She thanked me when she saw me and said she can’t wait to try it. It was thought up by them not me and cherished. I’m so proud of their big hearts.
We’ve given away all of our Kleenex Brand Care Packs through the Softness Worth Sharing initiative to friends. Together with the kids’ help we’ve put together care packages for four different families and each one contained a care pack. It’s the perfect amount of softness to add to a package. It’s cold and flu season and the noses are dripping, so I loved adding the care packages to the fun gift baskets we created.
Don’t forget that the Kleenex brand is giving you the opportunity to make the care complete with a Kleenex Brand Care Pack. To participate, just visit your local retailer, purchase a Kleenex brand bundle pack and redeem the code on the box. Then simply visit Kleenex.com and follow the directions to send a Care Pack to someone who needs something small to life them up.
