5 Fun Ways to Put the “Thanks” into Thanksgiving

gratitude 4It’s all about the turkey, right? Or is it football for you? Pumpkin pie? Maybe it’s the Thanksgiving Day parade. Whatever it is, we all enjoy this big day of feasting and family. But there’s so much more to it. On this special Thursday, we’re called upon to appreciate all our blessings. Read on to learn our 5 fun, simple ways to cultivate that “attitude of gratitude.”

Our 5 Favorite Ways to Develop Gratitude

  • Keep a Blessings Jar – Throughout the year, write the things that give you happiness on a piece of paper. Save the scraps in a decorative jar and read them aloud on Thanksgiving.
  • Create a Thankful Tree – Give everyone a leaf cut from paper. Have them write down three things they are most grateful for in their life. Attach the leaves to a small branch or tree, or create a tree shape on the wall and tape the leaves on.
  • Share thanks – Go around the dinner table and ask everyone to name at least one thing they’re thankful for this year.
  • Start a gratitude journal – Studies show that gratitude journaling can have a positive impact on your emotional and physical well-being. Write about what you’re thankful for to keep yourself in a positive state of mind.
  • Write a “gratitude letter” – Writing a gratitude letter to an important person in your life whom you’ve never properly thanked can have a strong and long-lasting happiness boost. This is especially true when gratitude letters are delivered in person. Gratitude brings us happiness, reduces anxiety, strengthens relationships, promotes forgiveness and is good for our bodies.

Survey your family and see if any of these ideas resonate. Then get to work and make this Thanksgiving the thanks-giving-est one ever!

The candles are lit. The turkey is in the oven. The guests will arrive any minute. Creating that warm, inviting feeling in your home takes effort. It comes through the scents of the lovingly prepared food. And it comes from the calm of cleanly swept and dusted rooms. In addition, maybe you’ve taken the time to gather fall leaves or other natural elements as a centerpiece. Here at Giftsin24, we offer a product that can underscore  and embrace the ideas of family and bounty:  Personalized Thanksgiving napkins.

At Thanksgiving, we celebrate the bounty and beauty of our lives. What’s more, we celebrate not only the bounty of our kitchens but also the deep, meaningful relationships with our family and friends.  Customize napkins with your family’s name, “Thanksgiving 2015” or a family motto or slogan, such as “Embraced in love” or “Gratitude is an attitude” or “Live, laugh, love.”

Here are some of our favorite Thanksgiving napkins, which you can personalize as you wish. We make them from the highest quality, three-ply paper. Finally, they come in a range of colors and inks to match any decor.

 “You have to love a nation that celebrates its independence every July 4, not with a parade of guns, tanks, and soldiers who file by the White House in a show of strength and muscle, but with family picnics where kids throw Frisbees, the potato salad gets iffy, and the flies die from happiness. You may think you have overeaten, but it is patriotism.”    Erma BombeckYou have to love a nation that celebrates its Independence every July 4, not with a parade of guns, tanks, and soldiers who file by the White House in a show of strength and muscle, but with family picnics where kids throw Frisbees, the potato salad gets iffy, and the flies die from happiness.

Personalized Notes Say You Care

Notes_imageHappy Valentine’s Day! Use personalized notes to tell people you love them all throughout the year, not just on Valentine’s Day.

Remember the cute Valentines we swapped in grade school (hoping to get one from our secret crush!) and those little pastel-colored conversation hearts?  Or the first “real” Valentine’s Day you shared with your new love?

Romance is wonderful at any age, but what about all the other special relationships in our lives?  We all have people that are dear to us.  There are our children, our parents and grandparents, friends, siblings and relatives. It’s important to let them know that they’re loved and appreciated as well, not just on Valentine’s Day, but any day of the year.

Great reasons to send a personalized note or card

– Just because you thought of them today
– You haven’t seen them since the holidays and you miss them
– A friend or neighbor is recovering from an illness or surgery and a written hello will lift their spirits
– Share good news – about your upcoming wedding, new job or a baby
– Say thanks for the get-together they hosted or the lunch date you shared
– Tell them how much a small act or word of kindness from them meant to you
– Brighten the day of someone in the military – they’re far from home

Cards_imageThere are so many ways to stay in touch, to say thanks or you’re welcome, to acknowledge an achievement, share a milestone, offer congratulations and best wishes.  Take a few minutes out of your day to write a personalized note.  It may mean the world to the recipient. You never know – it may arrive right at the moment they need it most.  So if you’re thinking of someone, let them know.  Express your love and appreciation to those in your life any day of the year.
