This Holiday season I wanted to make more of an effort to point out all those people in our lives that help make it extraordinary! We live in a world where we go throughout our day to day lives and sadly take little time to recognize and thank all the people that put in their time, effort and talents to make it function and special. I want my kids to be able to identify those people and the acts of service that they do. I also wanted to show them how FUN it is to give! A few years ago I saw the saying “Thanks for making so many ordinary moments extraordinary” and I have always loved it! I knew it was the perfect saying for our gift tag! As I was designing it, I decided I didn’t want to have it be Christmas themed, because I want to be able to use it all year long. Flowers are appropriate all year long, so I went that route!
We then went out a got a bunch of treats and put gift tags on them and have them ready so throughout the season the kids could point out people that help make our lives “extraordinary!” One of my all time my favorites treats are TURTLES® nut clusters! They really are the perfect combination of chocolate, caramel and nuts! I honestly don’t know anybody that doesn’t love them! So, naturally I bought up a bunch of TURTLES® candies! We bought a few boxed gift sets and then lots of the 3-piece bars!
The first person my kids wanted to thank was their Grandma! She’s the perfect example of someone that makes ordinary moments extraordinary! We took them with us down to her house for Thanksgiving!
My kids were SO excited to give it to her and of course she was so grateful (and excited for the yummy TURTLE® nut clusters)! Afterwards, the kids were so excited that they started making a list of other people to give them to. Here’s what they’ve come up with so far!
- School Teacher
- School Principal
- Friends Mom & Dad
- Church Teacher
- Bus Driver
- Speech Teacher
- Other Grandparents
- Taekwondo Teacher
As you can see we are excited to acknowledge lots of people this upcoming month!
