I can’t believe that we are in the last week of January 2016 already. That means Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. You may still have a couple of weeks to plan, but for those of you who want to throw a party or have 30 some Valentine’s to put together for your child to take to school, you probably want to get started.
With February just days away, this is the perfect time to think about what Valentine’s Day is really about and discuss giving that exemplifies the code of The Law of Giving. The day is most adored by those in relationships as they feel they have something to celebrate. However, Valentine’s Day doesn’t just have to be for couples because it’s also about expressing appreciation and innermost feelings about the people in your life. Regardless of what you think about Valentine’s Day, this year try to tailor your V-Day gifts to tell the people around you exactly how you feel. With some creativity you can express your giving feelings to your friends, and with a pinch of romance you’ll be giving and receiving love.
Use this time for giving in a way that makes others happy and inspires love, affection, caring, and gratefulness. I’m doing a roundup of Valentine’s and gifts that speak your mind and heart. The messages in the following small gifts simply evoke positive feelings and don’t have to be saved for Valentine’s Day only, but can be given anytime you want to do something nice for someone.
I’m So Fortunate We’re Friends Fortune Cookie
A coworker, neighbor, or your best friend will appreciate you and this “small token of your appreciation”. In the morning or after lunch, drop off a takeout box with a fortune cookie and a special message that tells how grateful you are for their friendship.
