#3 Create Gratitude / Blessing Jars
Value! That is what people want…to feel valued.
What better way to show someone you care about, love, and cherish that you value them, than to give them love notes? Notes of encouragement, words of wisdom and prayers of blessings over their lives. You can create such a jar that can contain these amazing feelings as the gift that keeps on giving.
This is a real easy gift to create. You can use any kind of container that will hold your special words. Canning Jars, Keepsake Box, Pickle Jars, Cigar box, etc. You can put in as many blessings or as few as you would like. How awesome would it be to give or receive a gift that had a blessing for you for each day of the year? Be as creative or as simple as you choose.
You can decorate your container or leave it plain. Below is an example.
Don’t wait until our loved ones are gone to say all the things you wanted to share with them. Do it today! They will love you for it all year long!
Handwrite or computer generate these blessings/gratitude strips in any size you choose. You want them fit in and be taken out of the jar easily.
Customize your container with spray paint and glitter, wrapping paper or paint, Paper Mache or decoupage! The sky is the limit! When your container is completely dry add your love notes to your container. Wrap it up, box it up or use a gift bag with tissue paper for a lovely presentation.
While our budgets may be small to non-existent it doesn’t mean you can’t give gifts or share in special events.
